Alternative Medicine for Pets/scratching, biting constantly


I have two cavalier king charles,I live in west Palm beach. They have monthly routine heartworm , flea meds. Lately the past three weeks they have been scratching and biting by the tail. Vet said to use steroids, I did not choose that scares me. I have been shampooing them every week in oatmeal shampoo. Nothing is working. Please help

Hello Maria,

I have been eliminating this issue with hundreds of dogs for over 25 years the totally natural way, so I know that you can and definitely should avoid the vet at all cost if you want to help your Cavies. It is really quite simple, but since I have been studying it for many years, there is way too much to tell you here. As a result of all those years of experience, I have written a book called "Simple Steps to a Healthy Pet", and for right now, I have chosen to give it away for free because people really need to know the information in it in order to save the suffering of their dogs and their finances. If you would like a copy, go to my site: ; fill out and submit the popup form, and confirm that you are a real person. You will get and e-mail containing a PDF attachment of the book. Read it thoroughly (it isn't long), and do what it tells you. If you have any questions after you read it, feel free to call us at my shop 727-327-2356.

While you are at the site, check out our products.  They will help you solve your problem. You need to get them off of both meds for heartworm and fleas and go totally natural.

Take care,

P.S. Check and see if your dogs' ears smell waxy or musty. Often when a dog has an ear problem starting, they chew at the base of their tail. Ear problems, by the way, are a symptom of the problem as well as the scratching. The book explains it all.
