Question
I just started my dog (beagle/doxie mix) on the colloidal silver yesterday.  He has a lung infection (not sure if it is fungus) and the antibiotic prescribed is doing minimal positive results.  It has been one week.  
He does not eat much but will eat eggs.  I make like an omelet with good veggies mixed in.  He will drink water so that is not a concern.  
My question is how long for me to see results from the colloidal silver?  I heard it is pretty quick acting.  
Thank you

Answer
Colloidal Silver and your pet's infections; Natural Antibiotic ,  
Hi Cynthia,  It depends.. HOPE you purchased a good quality brand.  I often have my clients use Silver Shield as I know it's quality ;

I use this one http://healingforpets.mynsp.com/   ( the Silver Shield )  
Normally a medium size dog would take 20 drops 2 x per day in their water or direct into the side of their mouth

It can take up to 30 days to see a big difference with your pet's health.

Sorry, Natural takes time

Here is the link Direct to the Silver product
