Recently my dog Linus woke up and wasn’t able to use his rear legs. Linus is our 8yo pitbull/sharpei (we think) rescue, we’ve had him since he was about 3mo. After a stay at the vet, we decided against surgery and are trying to give his body everything it needs to heal itself. Linus had already been on Nzymes as a puppy for yeast so I immediately ordered the granules for him. He’s currently taking 2-3tsp/day as per Mike from Nzymes. I’ve purchased your recommended laser, Excel K9 oil, and will soon purchase the colloidial silver machine and CoQ10. My question are, 1) how do I use the laser and colloidial silver, 2) and how much Excel K9 oil, CoQ10, and colloidial silver should I be giving him? Since using the Nzymes alone, we’ve seen some of his back muscles twitching. It’s very encouraging and we’d love to do more to pave the way for as much recovery as possible.

Hi Elaine! 😊 I apologize for my delay in getting back to you. I was away on a trip and have just returned home.
I would like to speak with you?! I’d love to hear about Linus, 💕 and get everything all figured out. I could respond on here, but I would definitely be writing you a novel. 😀
Could I call you? If yes, please send me an email and let me know when is a good time for you? I’m on Central Time. 😊
Again, I am so sorry for taking so long to get back to you.

Ms. Brenda, I have talked to my Angel, Mike at Nzymes. I have a Yorkshire Terrier by the name of Fatman. He is 9 years old. 6 weeks ago he woke up to being totally paralyzed. After emergency visit and hospital stay he is trying to move his back legs. I purchased a doggie wheelchair. His thyroid is .5, he has an enlarged heart and enlarged spleen. He has a growth that looks like a “c” surrounding his esophagus. He also lost his big bark and makes a noise like “abba, abba. I love him. In 2009 I was sexually assaulted and he loved me thru all the legal, emotional and physical pains I endured. He loves me unconditionally. I am willing to do anything to extend his life and make him be able to enjoy his life. He still wags his tail a hundred miles an hour. He has a will to live. He is able to eat, drink, urinate and poop. I do massage therapy about 3 times a day and he has 4-7 showers a week. I don’t want him to get any sores or smell. Thank you.
Jan 2, 2020
We definitely should have a phone chat! 😊 Mike filled me in on everything and I know he really enjoyed talking to you. I think it was meant to be that way. 💕

Hi Brenda Stan from nzymes sent me to you. My 12&1/2 German shepherd was just diagnosed with degernative myopathy. Any info you could share with me would be helpful!
Jan 5, 2020
Hi Janice! Thank you so much for reaching out. 💕 Please take a look at this, this is an article I wrote about DM, and what I do for such.
Please let me know if you have any questions or need anything, I’ll be more than happy to help! ❤️

I purchased the laser from this link.
I used it this morning on my dog, Maxine (Rat terrier/Chihuahua mix). Her right leg is limping after the vets got her left leg working through laser therapy. I followed the directions through your blog about laser therapy.
I wanted to know if the laser is supposed to have a green light, how often should I be using the laser therapy, and if you have anymore instructions on how to use the laser.
Jan 25, 2020
Hi Tiffany! 😊
Yes, it is absolutely ok for the laser to have a green light. I have used both red and green, and I cannot tell you that there was any difference between the two? They both gave me the same results. What I think is most important is the length/strength of the beam. And these ones, have quite the beam!
When I do laser on any of the dogs, I’ll try to give them about ten minutes at least twice a day. I’ll
park myself on the floor with them in front of or beside me. I always start at the base of the neck. Between the shoulder blades. Small, slow circles, not lifting the laser at all, and work my way down the spinal column, all the way right to the base of the tail. And then I do with bigger circles, all around the hind end/leg and move down to about the knee. Of course this you can only do if the dog is laying on its side. Otherwise, just doing along the spine is good. And do that for about ten minutes.
My dogs who no longer require the laser, always come running when I come out with it for another dog. 😀 They obviously knew it helped them, and felt better as a result of it. 💕
Please let me know if you have any other questions, I’ll be happy to help.

Hi Brenda. My name is Ronald Priest and I spoke with Stan for sometime this afternoon. I called about my golden doodle and her yeast problems. During our conversation I mentioned to him that I had interstitial cystitis with lesions. He told me I needed to talk to you and to contact you as you had suffered bladder problems in the past. I would love to speak with you about the products that helped you. Thank you

Hi Ronald! 😊 Did Stan tell/send you my story? If not, here’s the link to it. Please read it…we definitely need to chat!!
Can you email me at email@example.com and send me your phone number and when’s a good time to call you?

I could really use some advice. I have had my 12 yr old female Westie on the nzyme program for 7 months. She and I
have been thru hell and back during this process. I am doing everything suggested by the program and have spoken with people at nzymes numerous times. Maddie will seem to be getting a little better and then she takes a turn for the worse again. The smell is absolutely horrible, even though I am using the nzyme shampoo and spraying her 2-3 times a day with the spray. She is on a grassfed beef/liver/heart and pastured boiled egg diet with no treats at all. She has no hair on her legs,feet or belly, which are still just black skin (some pink). Now again the hair on her body is thinning and she has the spots of skin that are crusty I guess where the yeast is coming out. I am using CS (1-2 droppers full) in her food. Can you think of anything else that I can do to help her get through this. I read all the articles and it seems that most of these dogs get better in a few months. I am at my wits end…I would thank you for any advice you can give me..
Did you also get a chance to read the article I have on my site or just the Nzymes ones? I have an ‘Allergy/Auto Immune’ issue one, so I’m just wondering if you seen that also? If not, here is the link to it.
In that article, one other thing I use is Melatonin. I’m wondering if maybe that may be of help too? I find it extremely beneficial. It not only changes their mindset and creates a more ‘happy’ brain, and the side effect of Melatonin? It grows fur! 😀
And please don’t be discouraged by the length of time this is taking, every single body is different. I’ve had dogs, where it took over a year before they were finally done detoxing, and things started getting better. There are so many things that can affect the speed of the progress, like age, how long they’ve been suffering with the condition for, the diet, vaccination/flea heartworm or even the breed. So yes, sometimes there can be those Cinderella stories, but sometimes it’s nowhere near that. We just have to be patient. I know it difficult. 🙁
The other thing, that may be possibly contributing to this, may be the organ meat. Organ meat creates uric acid in a dogs body, and causes skin inflammation if not filtered out fully by the liver. So, that may be something to look at also? Try taking out the organ meats and see how things change, or if they do in a few days to the next week?
But, I do also think that we could change/up something to help too, and that would be bumping up the silver. That’s the one thing that I have found over the years to not be afraid of using. I have experienced some major improvements when I bumped that up.
Can you send me an email at Brenda@nzymes.com and let me know the weight of your girl, and I can let you know what I would use on a dog with her weight?
Thank you so much for reaching out Vicky, we will get this figured out. 💕

Hi there Brenda! Can’t remember what the granules are called that Gunther was on for tics…..it was the garlic one…..I can’t seem to find it on the Nzymes site.
It’s called Bug Off Garlic. That’s what I used for Gunther. ❤️ We were JUST telling his story and showing pics to someone that care over, looking for help with their dog. I tell his story ALWAYS. Plus the fact that he’s on the one Nzymes brochure is pretty special. 😊
I’ve got some Bug Off garlic right now, a couple of bottles of the chewables. I have another order sitting at the border unable to cross due to it all being shut down. So once that gets to come then I’ll have the Bug Off granules too. 😊

Hi Brenda, we started our Chow on the granules around February. Nita is 14 yrs old between 50-55 lbs, she started with arthritis in her front rt. elbow, over the years she started to have neurological issues (so the vet says) and her back feet began “knuckling” under. We tried acupuncture but felt it wasn’t helping and causing all of us more stress. We have her on pain meds, galiprant and gabapentin, which I hate but don’t want her hurting. We have been feeding her raw frozen Primal food for years now. Snacks are kept to those without grains. When we started her on the granules, she had been declining and able to walk less and less. Pretty much paralysis had set in. I prayed and prayed and found your site so believing this will help heal her. Like people said she got worse, but over time she has begun to try to stand and walk. Almost every day I see her try her best to do this. Once she is able to stand and walk a few steps she eventually will end up swaying to one side then her hip collapse and she’s down. I try to massage her back legs every day, rubbing them and scratching them along with her paws. She definitely has feeling in them as she typically stretches them out when I do this and she kicks against my hand when I tickle or press on her foot between her pads. We got her a wheelchair to assist with her doing her business. She runs in it to go see other dogs in the neighborhood. We also use a strap to hold up her back legs so she is able to move them and walk with them as much as possible.
So, I am hoping to get some feedback/protocol from you on what more we should be doing. I saw that you recommend Colloidal Silver, how much and when? I was told that too much isn’t good for animals so I am cautious about using it. You let me know. Anything else you would recommend?
I know she will walk again, I truly believe this and with God and the granules she will get there. I cheer her on every time she stands and walks. She is up in age for a Chow and I just want her to have quality of life until her last day. We rescued her at 1 year old from a situation where she and her sister we chained in a back yard in Breckenridge Co, they were kept outside day/night/good weather and bad weather. No human interaction. For many many years we couldn’t touch her or pet her. What’s even sadder is we live in the country, our property is large and fence is short so when she came to us she felt freedom so she would jump the fence. She ended up on a long rope on our property for years because she would run for miles away from our house. Because of the arthritis she was no longer able to jump the fence so we took her off the rope so she could be free but then the paralysis set in. She has become very attached to me since this paralysis issue and now she has separation anxiety and I can’t even leave the room for more than a minute without her crying and dragging herself to get to me. This makes me very sad and is very stressful so anything you can recommend would be so appreciated.
Thank you for your time it is much appreciated, thanks for listening. Lisa

Hello Lisa! 😊
I want to begin by saying I LOVE your spirit. 💕 The faith and belief you have, that’s exactly what this world needs more of, and it is clearly helping for Nita. I always stay positive too, and never let the animals know there is something ‘wrong’. Encourage them and tell them they GOT THIS!! ❤️ They don’t know they aren’t ‘well’ so neither do I. 😀
Are you doing a double dose of the Nzymes? As that’s super important. Especially for mobility issues, and for any animals over the age of 7 as that is then considered a senior. Double and triple dosing is totally ok. The way I look at it? Every piece of those granules are ‘alive’, so the more Life we can put into the body, the better off it is. I have some dogs right now that are being quadruple dosed, but one is 14.5 years old and she really needs it. But that’s what keeps her at her best, so I give that much.
As for the silver, I always do 2 ounces for dogs around the 50lb mark. I know that this can become costly, and hence I recommend to make your own colloidal silver, which then makes it very very cost effective and doesn’t matter if you use more because all it really costs you is distilled water. 😀 But we could address that further if you need. But 2 ounces is what I would use if I had Nita here with her condition. And then for Q10, in case you want to use that also, 200 mg a day.
As for her separation anxiety, that’s completely understandable. I’ve had dogs begin to do that also when they have been ‘broken’. 🙁 But, I found using Melatonin (5-10mgs) really helped that, and you can use it multiple times a day if needed. I prefer the capsules with the powder inside, as opposed to the dissolvable ones, as we don’t want any sugar or sugar substitutes, hence the capsules being better. And I just would open one up into some raw food and give them a teaspoon of it and down it goes. 😀
Keep up the great Faith Lisa, and if you need anything, I’m here. My email is email@example.com and my direct number is 204-955-7111 (it’s a Canadian number) and then the toll free is 1-877-816-6500 ext 3238. ❤️
Apr 28, 2020
Brenda, thank you so so much. I will begin the silver and Q10. I think I saw somewhere where you gave the recipe to make silver, I will look for that. Yes we are giving her 2 tsp per day of granules but we can double that. There are days she barely eats so it’s tough on those days but we will get it figured out. I will let you know how things progress. Thanks so much for your encouragement…it means a lot.
Apr 30, 2020
I was referred to you for my health and my dog’s. 😊
I won’t go into my health here, but my little maltepoo has some strange little bumps on her that look like black under her skin. Her appetite has also been off lately. I have begun to give her colloidal silver every day as well as putting it on the little bumps. What would be your recommendations for something like this?

I am distraught as I try to contact you. My little Pom, Gizmo has just been diagnosed with disc disease, the prognosis is not good. He is paralyzed in his back legs and has no control of his bowels oe bladder. The laser was offered and I accepted, he is having that right now. They said that it probably won’t help him. I ordered the nzymes yesterday and I spoke with the man in the picture with you and he said if I contacted you that you would talk to me. I need you help. We are desperate for information and just a understanding ear. I look forward to hearing from you. I don’t have a website so please email me or call me. 304-308-0361.

I am so sorry to hear about your little Gizmo. Please know there is so much hope for him!
Email sent to you. 💕
I’m new to using nzymes, have a few questions for you. A rep gave me your name and website! I watched the amazing stories and I’m hoping we can get our 7 month old rescue lab back to normal so he can get adopted out. Here is a bit of info, the puppy was adopted out around 4 months old no issues happy healthy puppy. A couple weeks ago the family drops the dog off to us said they can’t deal with what’s going on, they didn’t reach out or anything to tell us something was wrong. When we received him he was paralyzed in the back legs, spine curved and head tilted to the side. We rushed him to the vet to get some meds to relieve his pain. They put him on a steroid and tramadol, then the research began for help as we were told MRIs would cost $2500. I came across nzymes and then a helpful rep gave me info. With all that said and your experience our questions are: Ollie’s right side is really sensitive, when we barely touch his ear he yelps and his eye is droopy is that a normal symptom with the paralysis? We were also given some exercises to do and haven’t had very much success as he’s really stiff in his legs and tries to bite us probably do to the pain, which leads into his aggressive behavior he’s all of the sudden started. We notice it’s when we try to touch “his stuff” he growls and gets aggressive not sure if this is because he is having problems seeing so he’s being protective. If you need videos or pictures we can provide and any help or information would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Michelle! 😊 Thank you so much for reaching out. That would have been my best friend Kara whom you corresponded with. She actually just arrived here from Saskatchewan last night. 💕 I was just telling her about your boy and she was like ‘That’s Michelle’s dog, I know who that is!’. Very neat. 😀
I would absolutely love to see video of your boy. Could you please send them to Brenda@nzymes.com I would greatly appreciate that.
It sounds like he was hit, by a car or something large. To be the way he is, definitely an impact to his body caused such injuries. But, it’s certainly not anything that I would deem Hopeless. 💕 I’ve worked with dogs that were hit by vehicles and they said they’d never walk again without surgery and we defied that all the way to the bank! 😆 So I always find Hope no matter what.
Do you know, if you have K9 Chiropractic in your area? As that’s one thing that I would do with him for sure. See about getting things aligned again. The head tilt tells me something is very much out of place.
I’m going to include this link and maybe you can find one close to you if you aren’t aware of any. 😊

And then, next would be to take a look at his diet, and just ensure that there are no starches, as that’s going to ‘feed’ into swelling and inflammation. Corn, rice, potato, wheat and tapioca are the big No No’s. If those aren’t in his diet then it’ll be of big help also. 💕
When I experienced my first paralysis with my dog Bella in 2012, at that time I didn’t have any idea of the importance of food, and how the starches fed her degenerative disease. Sadly it caused a second one in 2014. 🙁 But she recovered from that one also.
Have you been able to take a look at the paralysis article? 😊 As you will see in that article, that any time there is an animal that has endured a mobility issue, it is highly recommended to keep them on a double dose of the Nzymes. Their bodies require more ‘fuel’, more resources. Therefore, the more ‘Life’ you can give to them, the better off they will be. And that is what the Nzymes granules/treats are, living nutrition. Food. You cannot overdose on food. 🙃 I find, that using the granules in their food, and then giving the treats as their treats during the day, works the best. There is something about using the two together that helps these pups even more?!
One of my dogs is a Dacshund. His name is Beanut. He came to me with a year old paralysis. He was the very first dog I put onto the regimen mentioned in that above article, and he’s been with us now for over 5 years, and he’s never had a set back or reoccurrence. He was already beginning to really motor around after two weeks of being on everything. This is where he was at after two months. (He was a bit of a hit here in Winnipeg and had been on the news)
With my Bella girl though, I only used the Nzymes granules and treats at first. I didn’t know back in 2012/2013 that I was feeding her starch filled foods, essentially ‘feeding’ her degenerate disease. It wasn’t until the Fall of 2014, that I discovered about using colloidal silver and Q10 after her second paralysis. Sadly, she passed away last year in August due to Mitral Valve disease. Her heart couldn’t do it no more. And I could not ‘save’ her for one last time. 😢 She made that very clear. In life, and in her death, she’s been the best ‘gift’ I’ve ever received. But I do wonder; had I known of all these things from the beginning and had got her on the right food and all the supplements, would the other paralysis’s have occurred? I don’t know, I will never know. With Beanut, it seems to have stopped his degeneration…so maybe? But at least going forward I can share my stories and experiences and then I can sleep at night knowing I didn’t miss telling anyone something. 😀
Please know that there is so much Hope for your boy! We just have to make sure there are no ‘goalies’ in the way of hindering his recovery, and give him the best diet and nutrition, and let his body do it’s own repair and recovery. 💕
If you have any questions, or need anything, I’ll be more than happy to help. And if you can email me the videos, that would be great. 😀 Does he currently have deep pain sensation in his back legs? Any feeling there? Tail able to wag? And I suspect his moodiness with not wanting to be touched is probably due to him to being so well ‘aware’ of his injury, and it could be also a residual almost like a PTSD of something that occurred with his other home? 🙁 Hard to say, but I know with Bella she didn’t like to be touched in her Netherlands either because she couldn’t feel it properly and she’d always lash out too, but that stopped once she gained it all back.
Thank you again for reaching out Michelle. You are incredible for taking your boy back and doing everything you can. Thankfully he’s so young and has age on his side. Now we just have to give his body the ‘tools’ and let’s see what happens?! 💜

I have two horses with different issues:
Horse 1: Terrible infection called “Poll Evil”, very difficult to eradicate. I have her on Colloidal Silver with the help of Dr. Mark DePaolo in Texas – I am in Illinois. We are seeing improvement! But I am wondering if you have advice on NZymes for her. She has been on antibiotics – is now off of them, but was on orals for 6 weeks. Dr. Mark recommended ozone therapy but there is no one around us for that. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
Horse 2: This is one of those cases where he just “isn’t right”. I suspect Lyme. He lives on a farm where ticks are common. Had a positive test from years back. I am a Lyme survivor myself (we are a club, aren’t we?) and know that it is so difficult to kill. Was thinking about putting him on silver too, what else would you recommend? Thank you for any advice you can offer!
Hi Heather! I’m so sorry to do this, in case it did come through but did you get my response? I just had your message come up as a new one, but I know I had seen it and responded before. But if that didn’t come through to you, please let me know. ❤️
Hello Heather! 😊
I just happen to be sitting next to my best friend Kara, and she’s the horse gal for Nzymes. 💕 I hope it is ok, I’m going to pass along your message for her to also respond to you? You’ll get the both of us. 😀
Do you make your own silver? Or are you buying it? Both Kara and I make our own and it’s SOOO much cheaper. Here is an article I have about it and there is information in it too for making it yourself too. 💕
So you are a fellow Lyme’r too? What an awful disease it is. I sometimes think back to the way things were for me and I can hardily believe I survived that! I don’t know anymore how I did it??!! But, now for any Lyme cases, human or animal, Nzymes and colloidal silver is ‘it’. 🙃 Did you see this story about Lyme in horses?
If you want, my email is Brenda@nzymes.com if you have any questions or need anything, that’s the best way for me, and I’m passing along your message to Kara, and you’ll be hearing from her too if she’s got more to add to this. ❤️

I just so happened to have stumbled across an article about you and Beanut last night. I read about the Nzymes and googled their website. I ordered a sampler kit that I’m too impatient to receive.
I have a 7 year old dachshund, named Heidi, who is my entire world/life, and she’s been down with IVDD for about 8 weeks. A co-worker told me about laser treatment. I went to her vet and they told me Heidi needed surgery in the morning. The next morning, my mom and I met with the vet that would be performing the surgery. (My mom has had dachshunds all her life and 2 of them have had this disease. One had surgery and one did not.) We had a lot of questions for the vet. Before doing the surgery, he did his own physical exam and determined that surgery was not required. She had been on prednisone already by that point. 16 laser treatments later, and prednisone the entire time, she had been doing better. Until this last week. This last week we started doing physical therapy exercises and I noticed she’s walking less and started to drag herself when peeing. She barely poops now. I attribute that to the fact that she can no longer support herself to poop. She had a hard time peeing on her own at the beginning and wouldn’t let us express her bladder. She was out on a bladder relaxer medicine and that helped. She’s off that now for a few weeks. She’s been crated this entire time. Gets let out to eat and go outside to pee. Then when I’m home for the evening, she’s in bed with me. I can’t bare for my angel baby to be in “prison,” so I keep her with me.
Now I’ve seen this site and read what you had to say about the crate and the diet. Should I go ahead and leave her on a comfortable little dog bed all day while I’m at work? I leave home at about 6:30 am and don’t return until about 6:15 pm. Some days I get lunch break (I live close to my work), but some days I don’t get a lunch break. I have a ramp for the couch now, but she’s not used to it I know won’t use it. Obviously she won’t be attempting to jump on the couch either. He’s always had free reign of the house until her back went down. She’s the only dog in my house.
My mom comes over a lot to help with exercises, water therapy included. But I’m a few weeks, she’ll have to return to work as a school teacher.
I clicked on the link to see the food diet that Nzymes recommends, but I’m a little confused and still unsure what to buy for her. She’s currently eating wet gastroenteric food provided by the vet. She loves it. But it may not be the right food for her to heal.
I’ve also been giving her the “Greenies” pill pockets for her medicines and as a treat here and there when she was walking more. I was trying to get her used to her new ramps for the couch and to go outside.
I’m willing to do any and everything to help my baby get better and have a better life.

Hello Maria! 😀
Absolutely if Heidi is safe while you are at work, and can’t fall down anything, or jump down from somewhere, then let her be. Keep the strong parts strong! 💕 That’s the best thing you can do for her, is let her be Heidi. It’s already so tough on them to be ‘broken’, psychologically, that confining them to a ‘box’ when they never have been, is just not fair. I learned very quickly to just let them be, and not to feel sorry for them. Life goes on. 😊
Have you seen my paralysis article? If not, I think it would be of big help for you and Heidi. Especially about the food, and how important it is to have her be getting a starch free diet. And then, also you’ll learn of the other ‘tools’ I use along with the Nzymes granules to help aid her body even more with recovery. With the Nzymes granules? Keep her double dosed. Any animal over the age of 7 is considered a senior, therefore they require more ‘fuel’. More resources. You can’t over dose on Nzymes as it’s just ‘food’. 🙃
I must admit, I was so happy to read that you didn’t do the surgery. I have not seen a lot of success come from it, and over 650 other dogs who didn’t, which the vets said ‘that dog will never walk again without surgery’ and they were right. They didn’t walk, they ran!!! So I’m so glad to know Heidi didn’t get the surgery. It’s so much money, without any guarantees.
Please let me know if you have any questions or need anything. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to communicate that way, and we can also chat on the phone if you’d like. ❤️

I wonder if you can help me. My 10 year old dog became paralyzed after going to the vet! My dog was walking “weird” the vet x-rayed her said she had issues in her spine and her neck. He gave her injectable antibiotics, injectable muscle relaxants, and injectable steroids. He also sedated her and cleaned her teeth as he recognized she had an infection in her gums close to the gum line. Within 24hrs of leaving the vet she was paralyzed in her back lets. This was 2 weeks ago. I started her on the nzymes last Thursday (8/8/2020) I have not seen any improvement.Then she started urinating blood and is now in the ER. They said she will never walk again, and that her quality of life is terrible due to the muscle wasting and pain in her back. I am taking her back home tomorrow .. Pleas help I dont know what else to do?
I’m so sorry for what you are going through. And yes, I can definitely help you. 💕 I cringed when I seen how many ‘injectables’ they had given. 🙁 Wonder if any of those hit a nerve?
Have you seen the article I have about paralysis? It doesn’t matter the ‘why’ behind it, my approach to them is all the same. And, I’m sorry that they’ve said she will never walk again. I have heard that SO many times, hundreds upon hundreds and those vets were right, those dogs never walked again, they RAN! So please know where western medicine says there is no Hope, Mother Nature has another answer. Please take a read of this.
And Janet? If you want, we can also have a phone chat if you need anything? I’ll be more than happy to do so. ❤️ You got me with you every step of the way if you need.
THANK YOU Brenda. I am actually panicking because she is hopefully coming home today from the ER. They said due to her laying and not moving she has the most horrendous UTI, hence the severe amounts of blood in her urine. They have her on broad spectrum antibiotics and probiotics, as well as pain meds for her discomfort. They said when she came in she had a “little” feeling in her legs but now she doesnt have any. I have purchased a cart / wheel chair for her to see if I can get her moving. When she comes home.. She is on a RAW diet and has not been vaccinated by me since I adopted her when she was 1 years old (she is now 10). Should I double up on the granules and also give her the treats? what other support could you recommend? I am so anxious I dont want to euthanize her due to lameness !!!
..PS: If I want to chat with you what would be the best way to set this up?
Aug 13, 2020
Hi Janet! I’ll be free tomorrow afternoon if that would work for you? If it does, send me an email with your phone number to email@example.com
Please try to breathe. ❤️ I know this is such a tough place to be, and it can feel very isolated and alone. Nobody understands how we feel when we are in this situation. But, when I went through it, I had nobody at all, nobody to tell me any sign of Hope, it was all sadness on top of sadness. Nobody to tell me it was going to be ‘ok’. I don’t want you to feel that way. ❤️ And hopefully after we have our chat tomorrow you’ll hang up, and take another deep breath and believe too that everything is going to be ok. We just have to believe and be positive for your girl, and we got this! I’ll be with you for whatever you need. 😊

Janet, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and your phone number and we can set something up! 😊

I was wondering if you could suggest something that’s good for dog teeth cleaning.
Oct 1, 2020
I myself am a raw feeder, and therefore avoid the dental issues. However, years ago when I was a kibble feeder, we would once a week give them dogs raw chicken backs, well, for the big dogs, and the small foo foo ones would get chicken necks. When it’s raw, there are no worries about the bones, it’s when it’s cooked that it is an issue.
Anything natural will be the best. Even beef bones, given as a treat will also work at cleaning the teeth.
I also put colloidal silver into their food every day, as that too does wonders for the mouth and bacteria. 😊
Please let me know if I can be of any further help Sam!

I have a 6 year old Shih Tzu with terrible yeast problems. He has battled this for the past few years. We have tried all the treatments from ou veterinarian and it always comes back. We started the Nzyme program 6 weeks ago. He is receiving 1/2 tsp of the nzyme granules twice a day, 2 drops of the oxy twice a day and in his water, and 4 drops of the blackleaf twice a day. We have not started the bak pac yet. I am also giving him 1/2 tsp of silver twice a day and colostrum. We are bathing with the Nzymes shampoo 3 times a week and spraying with the oxy and the silver. He is very red and hot between his back legs and under his front arms. His skin is very pink all over and he is losing hair around his nose, mouth, and under his legs. He is just miserable. Is there anything else I can do to make this easier on him?
Dec 11, 2020
I am sorry to hear of what your little guy is enduring. And for you, I know it’s not easy for us to see our fur babies suffering through the detox process. 🙁 But, it is going to get better, the light is there at the end of the tunnel. I know it may seem hard to believe at times, but it is. 💕
What he is going through right now is right on par with the program. It’s going to always get worse before better when dealing with a yeast elimination. And you may have a few months of this, or longer. Every single body is different, and it’s hard to know how long exactly it’s going to take, but, the severity and duration of the detox’s are going to become less and less and shorter. Some will go through it rather quickly, but some, like one I’ve got right now, we are over a year in now with his detox. It is just now, finally starting to stop. Thank goodness he’s just a little Mexican because the amounts of baths I’ve had to give him over this past year, almost every single day for the first 10 months, I can’t imagine if he’d been a big dog! But, then I’ve done that too with big dogs, and got right in the tub with them every day for 6 months! 😅 So we do until. And then one day look back on it and have so much pride in what we achieved in their recovery. ❤️
Anyways, 😊 in answer to your question, yes, there are a few things you could do for him. First, bump up his colloidal silver. I’d do at least 3 tablespoons daily for him for the next few weeks. See how he does. That’s the one thing that I wish I could go back and have redo’s for, for not having used enough colloidal silver when I first began using it. I allowed a lot of the fear mongering to get to me, and instead of taking a chance and trying to help these dogs by upping it, I didn’t. And then I did with a dog who was soooo sick. His name was Gunther. I had nothing to lose with him, his owners thought they were going to put him over the bridge, and so he was the first dog where I first ever gave him a way higher amount of CS. And that, was when everything changed. For the better, drastically too! And since that first time years ago, I now have zero fear of being very generous with the silver because I’ve seen what can become of it. And it’s never been anything bad or detrimental or anything negative. Only really good. 😀
Second, is Melatonin. Have you ever heard of it? I use it all the time for skin/allergy/auto immune issues. I started using it on dogs that I suspected had developed almost like a compulsive behavior, with itching scratching, picking and licking. Those sounds can begin to drive us a little bit crazy when it just doesn’t stop!!!
Melatonin has a number of benefits. It is the hormone that the pineal gland secretes. Not only does it allow the animal to have a more ‘relaxed’ state of mind, but it actually promotes hair growth!!! Melatonin helps with creating a ‘happy brain’, and this I have found very helpful with dogs dealing also with PTSD, or mental trauma from abusive situations they’ve endured. It helps them to be calmer, not ‘at themselves’ all the time. It also doesn’t make them dopey or groggy, they sleep good, but wake up right away if needed. It can be used numerous times a day with no issues. I’ve had dogs who got it morning, afternoon, supper time and before bed. It was what they needed to keep them most comfortable.
I had found out by fluke, that the ‘side effect’ of Melatonin is that it grows fur! Well, that’s a win win when dealing with dogs who are losing their coats or have thinning hair!
The Melatonin I use comes from my local health food store. I won’t purchase supplements anywhere especially like Walmart, Costco, GNC, Walgreens, any of those big box chain stores. Their products are cheaply priced, because they are cheaply filled. They are not pure, and it scares me to know what the fillers and whatnot could do to my fur babies. 🙁 I won’t take that chance. So I always recommend to get Melatonin from a mom and pop health food store. They come in a capsule or dissolvable tablet. Either kind is good. I just always tell people when buying the dissolvable kind, to make sure that there is not the ingredient Xylitol in there. Xylitol is a sugar substitute that is fatal for dogs. I’ve never been told that anyone has found one with the Xylitol in it, but I always want to warn about it just in case.
I don’t know how much your boy weighs, but if you want to let me know I can let you know what I’d use for a dosage based on that?
And then, I have a question for you? What food is he currently on? And what does he get for snacks/treats? Ooops, that’s two questions. 😅 I’m just curious to see if there is anything there that we could change to make sure he’s not getting any starches.
I’ll be with you every step of the way if you need Beth, the good and the bad. 💜
Thanks for taking the time to read all this, 🙃 and for reaching out too!

I would like to chat with you about your experience with DM and CS and more. I’m an animal naturopath and reseacher. I also the founder of Long Living Pets Raw Feeding study, a 30-year study into raw fed dogs and cats. I will share my experiences with you.
I would absolutely love to speak with you! I was on your website and got completely drawn in with everything you have! Wow! I am super excited to connect. We are so alike in the way we think and approach things!
I too am a raw abiding citizen 😀 and have my own raw pet food line, made in a HACCP certified facility. I am very particular about raw food. It’s been quite the journey for me over the years to have started just feeding my dogs raw, (a bad one too as I lost a dog as a result of it-bone blockage 🙁) to learning about good and bad raw, and then to have been blessed with such an opportunity to have my own. It goes hand in hand with all the rest. Nutrition is so very important.
My ‘root’ always begins with the Nzymes granules, (living nutrition) and then the colloidal silver. And I seen something on your page about needing minerals? If you still do, then I have something incredible for that.
I also have a great love for the older senior animals. 💕 I am a part of Before the Bridge Senior rescue, and take in only the sickest, most ‘broken’ dogs. The ones given up on. Those are my favorites. Give them the best last months, or years, of their lives. With the best of everything. It is the best ‘reward’ and I get to see miracles every day. We have the best ‘j o b’ don’t we? ❤️
When I was on your page, the chat was open. I was hoping you were really there, but I suspect you had already turned in for the night. I’m such a night owl and it’s just midnight for me, and it’s early. 😁
My email is email@example.com if you’d like to send me a message, and let me know when is good for you to chat, and let’s figure something out!? I work from home, and am available pretty much any day, including weekends. Just not mornings. Self explanatory. 😅
Thanks for reaching out Thomas, I am looking forward to chatting with you.
Thank you so much for the support. I really appreciate your time. My Oscar weighs 18 pounds. I am currently feeding him Orijen dry dog food and mix it with Stella & Chewy’s freeze dried raw. He gets the freeze dried treats from Orijen and Stella & Chewy’s. I will start increasing his silver dosage.
I am giving him 2mg of melatonin currently. Should I increase the dosage? Also, I bathe him every other day with the Nzymes shampoo alternating with Zymox Itch Relief shampoo and Reliq shampoo. Once again thank you for your help. 😊
Dec 17, 2020
How is Oscar doing on the amount of melatonin you are using? Or, how long does his level of comfort last? Or does it even help at all? It can be upped, no problem. Myself, if I had an 18lb dog, I’d start with 5mg. And see how any hours they were settled for. If need be, it can be given numerous times during the day, and even before bed time to make the nights easier too. It’s usually pretty easy to figure out the ‘fit’ for what gives them the best lasting protection. 💕 And then for the silver, I’d do at least an ounce, 3 tablespoons.
Please can you keep me posted on how Oscar is doing? Or if he’s going through a rough time, and you need a friend for encouragement, I’m here. ❤️
Dec 13, 2020
Awesome Brenda! From reading your page we’re very similar and on the same mission, creating a healthy environment for our animals. Sending you an email this morning.
FYI… I was recently on Dr. Will Falconer’s Podcats chatting about raw food: https://vitalanimal.com/podcast/page/2/
Looking forward to chatting with you.
Dec 28, 2020
I believe Oscar is over the really bad phase. He is doing much better. I increased the silver and melatonin, started him on CoQ10, and colostrum. The difference is amazing. We are still bathing about every other day. I do have a question for you. He is due for a 3 year rabies shot. Should I hold off until he is completely better?
Thank you so very much for your help.
Dec 31, 2020
I am so very happy to hear Oscar is doing so much better! What a relief! Looks like things are on their way, and the light is at the end of the tunnel. 💕
As for the rabies vaccine, I myself wouldn’t do it it. Unless you live in an area where Oscar is going to be tangling with raccoons and skunks, or other potentially rabid animals, I wouldn’t have him injected with anything. But, I have my own personal beliefs about vaccines, any of them, and I won’t give my dogs any. It’s been over 8 years since any have gotten a shot. And where I live, they are supposed to get their rabies shots, but we don’t have ‘rabies police’ checking up. Thankfully. So I’d not put anything like that into him especially with his weakened immune system, it could end up being detrimental for him, and that would be heart breaking. 💔 If you want, we could have a phone chat sometime and I could fill you in about vaccines and the reasons why I won’t ever do them for any of my animals. 🙃

Our German Shepherd has recently (Dec.2020) been diagnosed with DM. He still has pretty good use of his back legs except his right leg is really week. He is knuckling a lot on it and he crosses his right over his left. I have started him on the Nzymes at 3 tsp. a day and two Nzyme treats a day. He also has 1/2oz. of the K9 oil on his food daily. I’m not sure how to by the Colloidal Silver or how to give it and would like more info on the right CoQ10. Where is best to buy it and how to give it. I have also changed his dog food to the NutriSource Senior and he doesn’t get any starch or legumes. Only treats he gets are whole blueberries or carrots. I am from Dayton Ohio and would love to chat sometime. We’re trying to slow this DM to a crawl if not stop it. Taz is just like his name. We adopted him 5 years ago from rescue. He’s so amazing! Thank you for your time.
Jan 6, 2021
I was just going to email you. 😊 I seen your email into Nzymes about Taz, (he is so gorgeous-super handsome boy) I didn’t at first realize that your post here and the email were the same Lori. ❤️ So here we are finally connected.
I would actually love to speak with you? Would that work for you too? Let me know when is good for you and let’s have a phone date? If you can, send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or you can even text me at 204-955-7111 if you can text a canadian number? And I’m free later this evening too if you are available also?!
Thanks so much for reaching out and I’m looking forward to being able to connect with you and have a Taz Talk.

My anatolian shepherd has been struggling with seizures since July. He had a full work up done ruling out the possibility of any cancers/tumors and was diagnosed with idiopathic epilepsy. A few months after being on phenobarbital he had a very rare reaction to the drug and his bone marrow became infected and destroyed his immune system. After trying many antibiotics the vet decided to give one last try with steroids added in. We’re very lucky that the steroids did the trick and our big guy is healthy! Unfortunately the phenobarbital (he was seizure free on the drug) is no longer an option for him so now he is taking potassium bromide + keppra. We’re grateful he is healthy however he is still having breakthrough seizures every week or so.
The reason I’m writing to you is because before I found your page after I made a connection that baz has ALWAYS had a seizure within a day or so after having a Kirkland dental chew. I started giving them to him back in July and shortly after he had his first seizure at the age of 2. I went a few months without giving them to him because I had forgotten we had them. About a month ago I started giving them to him without putting much thought into it. I feel horrible for only realizing the connection yesterday AFTER I had given him one. I kept him under very close supervision anticipating the upcoming event. and sure enough he had another seizure in the middle of the night.
I haven’t been able to find any scientific backing to this and haven’t been able to find anyone whose had this experience. I would love some feedback from you and your thoughts on how probable you think this connection could be with my pup who would eat these dental chews irregularly.
Also planning on starting him on the nzymes product!
Jan 13, 2021
Hello Whitney! 😊
Please don’t in any way give yourself a tough time about the dental chews. We all have done/given things to our fur babies which we later come to find out were bad or dangerous for them, but we learn right? I’ve been there too, and when I look back, I sure made mistakes too especially when it came to food and snacks/treats. I had no idea that I was feeding them such garbage food when I thought I was doing good. The vets certainly never told me otherwise and encouraged feeding even a worse food, so, we learn as we go, but we can’t beat ourselves up over our complacency. 💕
Thankfully for Baz, you got this figured out! And he won’t have to endure years and years of being on meds which only cover up the real root of the problem, which you now know. 😊 He’s going to be able to be med free, and healthy. 💜
Did you happen to see the article on my page about the dental bones/seizures connection? I have a video as a part of it also. I know there isn’t much out there on the internet about the connection, which I find odd, but then not too much I suppose because I think often things are censored from being seen. They want to make money off the products and then if return vet visits and drug sales, it’s the gift that keeps giving sadly. But here is the link to that article just in case you hadn’t seen it.
If you need anything going forward, please don’t hesitate to reach out. 😊 And if you at all want to go over his food and make sure that there isn’t anything in there that could also be a trigger over time for seizures, we can most certainly take a look at it all. And if we need to hit the reset button, so be it. But I think you are well on your way towards that, and with the Nzymes on the way, it’s even more perfect. Those will be a big help to detox out all of the chemicals and poisons in his body. You got this Whitney!!!
Thank you again for reaching out, and I’m here if you need anything. My email is Brenda@nzymes.com if you want to reach out that way also. I’d love to see what Baz looks like…🙃

Hi I’m looking for info on a raw dog food diet plan.
Just starting brand new !
33 pound 2 year old Male Cockapoo
Hello Lynette! 😊
Are you located in Manitoba? Because then we can have a chat on the phone?
And in the meantime, if you are on Facebook, there is a page for the raw food, Bella Raw. We have information on that page, including videos of its production, where it’s produced etc. It is one of 3 HAACP certified foods in Manitoba, which is very important to me. Human grade federally regulated food, is a must. 😊
If you’d like, send me a text at 204-955-7111 and we can figure out a time that works for us to have a phone chat?
Thanks so much for reaching out Lynette!

I recently bought the nyzemes for my 14-year-old Dalmatian Pitbull mix. He seemed to improve right away but we were feeding him homemade rice and his bowel incontinence has gotten worse, Elvis is able to move around better but no more starch for him and I have gotten rid of the pain medication except for CAPFREN. I have been giving him that at night.
Feb 24, 2021
May I ask if you are still feeding the rice? And if so, is it white? White rice is a starch, and the Nzymes will be constantly trying to detox out the yeast caused from that, and I believe that may be the cause of his loose stools. There would be a bit of a ‘battle’ being caused, the good trying to push out the bad. 😊 Currently, what is Elvis all getting for his diet including snacks and treats, even including things like dental bones and sticks.
Are you giving Elvis a double dose of the Nzymes? If not, please do. Any animal over the age of 7, is considered a senior. Therefore, they require more resources or ‘fuel’. I have a 14 year old Dane/lab (I say he’s a Moose but they tell me he’s a dog 😄) and he is getting 5 teaspoons a day. You can’t overdose on the Nzymes as all they are is living nutrition, food, a whole food source, and you definitely can’t overdose on food. So don’t be afraid to find what may be the perfect ‘fit’ for Elvis. And, it can also be changed if as he ages more, that you need to increase it even more. I know for my 14 year old, if his back end starts to give out on him again, I’ll bump him up to 6.
But, if you aren’t doing a double dose, and he is getting something very starchy, then I’d suggest to first eliminate that starch completely away, or else that loose stool problem is going to amplify. Upping the dose will work at getting more of that yeast out.
I’d be more than happy to go over his diet with you, or see if there is something else we can do for Elvis. 💕 What was the reason for you getting Nzymes for him? Was it mobility related?
Thanks so much for reaching out Madeleine, and anything you need, please don’t hesitate to reach out. I’ll happily help you and Elvis. 😊

ANTONIO CRISPO Reply
My name is Tony Crispo and I just sent you a text regarding my lab Georgia regarding Blasto.
She is on Tobramycin for her eyes and Intraconazole for the fungus infection.
The fourth vet, in a week, is doing a urine test to confirm that it is Blasto but is convinced that it is.
This has been going on since March 27 and has cost quite a bit so far, and am not getting anywhere.
Would you product help and can we talk???
I received your text and I responded, but maybe you didn’t get it? I definitely like to chat with you and get this all figured out for Georgia. I would highly recommend that even for now, get the Nzymes granules, OXE and Blackleaf. To be able to start getting those into her, will be a huge help. ❤️ That way, if it is Blasto, you are ahead of the game.
If you can, send me another text and let me know when is good for you to chat. And also, on the Blasto post here on my page, there are some really good comments from others who have experienced this too, so I believe you’ll also have a lot of Hope.
I will be more than happy to help you with Georgia every step of the way. 💕 You are not alone in this.
I look forward to speaking with you.
