Tips in the treatment of diseases of the respiratory system in animals
Strengthen the immune system. Medicinal plant Echinacea (Echinacea purpurea or Echinacea angustifolia) helps the body fight infection, says the doctor. Different animals need different amounts of Echinacea, she adds. For example, a dog weighing 30 kg. receives 1/4 of the total human dose, while a cat weighing 10 kg takes 1/2 of the full dose. In connection with the intake of Echinacea raises a new problem — many animals do not like its taste and, of course, they don’t like to swallow capsules. Doctor recommends the use of funds for children in liquid form. “They are prepared on the basis of glycerin, instead of alcohol, and pleasant to the taste,” she says.

You can quickly alleviate the condition of the dog, if you give her a little honey with lemon juice three times a day, says Christina, a veterinarian, applying methods of alternative therapy. You don’t have to comply with more accuracy in the preparation of such “medicines”. For example, a dog weighing 30 lbs. at one time got about a tablespoon of honey and half a teaspoon of lemon juice. “Some animals will lick the mixture with a spoon,” she says. Other animals can be administered the medicine using a syringe without the needle. You insert the syringe into the corner of the mouth and direct Smesov throat.
