Ionic Colloidal Silver is used by many people for a whole host of things. When taken properly, it’s an easy and safe remedy that you can employ at home. If you have pets, you may have wondered if the same silver you take can be an option for them. The answer in many cases is yes! We do caution that you seek the opinion of your veterinarian before administering any treatment to your pets at home. But many people can and have used silver on their pets with great results.
One of the most common ways that people use silver to treat their pets is for minor cuts and abrasions. In this case, silver is applied topically to stave off infection as the area heals. Silver has wonderful antimicrobial properties. In an age where overuse of prescribed antibiotics has created more antibiotic resistant bacteria than ever before, using silver may be seen as an alternative that is more socially responsible.
Another common issue that pets have is stomach aches or other stomach related issues. Giving your pet silver over the course of a few days may help get them feeling better much sooner. The best way to administer a dose of silver is with a syringe like the kind used to give medication to small children. These are available at any drugstore, and in most cases you may be able to get one at no charge from your pharmacist.
How much should I give my pet?
Like humans, pets need proper dosing and obviously a small cat will need far less than a large Great Dane. This answer is definitely something to consult your veterinarian about! Silver being used short term is probably less of an issue than if you are using silver daily, but of course you want to make sure that you are not giving your pet too much. There are many online guides that reference how much silver should be given based on the weight of the person (or animal), and where there is doubt, err on conservative side.
Many people have used silver with great benefit. It can make for happy and healthy pets as well as happy and healthy humans!
