Silver  for Pets, Easy Home Remedies

Our furry companions spend their days happy go lucky and unconcerned with getting sick. They play with other animals and occasionally get into some nasty things that are either dead or rotting and ripe with pathogens (bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites). 

At some point, you may face needing to treat your beloved pet for injury, infection, or disease. Fortunately, There is a lot you can do to safely treat your pet at home. This can prevent expensive veterinary visits that are traumatic for your pet and can be for you too!

Most likely, a conventional veterinarian will prescribe your pet synthetic pharmaceutical medicines and/or topical and oral dose antibiotic ointments.

Sometimes our pets need a doctor and thank goodness for veterinary care in those difficult emergencies. Use the information in this article to consider some alternative at home treatments, and as always, consult with your veterinarian as you normally would. 

There will always be a place for emergency heroic treatments. Western medicine is highly effective at these, though they often focus on suppressing symptoms. On the other hand, natural treatments for pets are effective both as a preventative and as triage remedies for injuries and infections. Silver Immune Support treats causal factors for illness while providing relief for symptoms.


Why avoid “whack-a-mole” veterinary care?

Allopathic modern medicine can have rapid heroic effects but is formulated to suppress symptoms. This then leads to a chain of system failures and the dreaded pharmaceutical cocktails along with their many side effects.

The danger of drugs like pet antibiotics is that they can be quite harmful to your pet’s overall and long term health. We now know that the widespread use of antibiotics in humans and pets is leading to diseases and infections that have antibiotic resistance to such drug treatments. Some examples are tuberculosis (TB), staph, and gonorrhea. Yikes!

In fact, use of these medicines for pets and people can cause more symptoms and side effects than the original illness. Antibiotic-resistant bacterial infections most commonly affect the skin, the gastrointestinal tract, the urinary tract, or the respiratory tract. Carefully discuss the use of drug treatments with your veterinarian.

By treating infection with prescription antibiotics, it is like setting off an internal bomb that kills bad bacteria but also kills essential positive probiotic bacteria. This negatively impacts gut health and immune function. 

As an alternative, colloidal silver for dogs, cats, and other pets is a proven fast acting and safe way to help combat infections and diseases. It includes a number of immediate health benefits for your pet, such as it helps to fight infections, boost their immune system, and supports day to day health and disease resistance.

What Else Should I Offer My Pet When Using Colloidal Silver Internally?

Hippocrates, the father of medicine, said, “bad digestion is at the root of all evil” and “death sits in the bowels.” What he meant was that the GI tract, or “gut,” is responsible for much more than digestion; it plays a major part in creating and sustaining health. 

Consider that for humans, 70% of immune function is found in the gastrointestinal tract.

Colloidal silver is gentle and effective as an antibiotic, but as mentioned antibiotics kill some of the healthy germs in your pet’s gut. This is why it is important to feed your pet probiotic rich foods to help preserve the sufficient good germs in their belly. This will help your pets food digestion while ensuring that their immune system stays strong.

Include these 4 easy prebiotic, probiotic, and enzyme rich foods in your diet, and in your pets diet too!

You’ll find that colloidal silver offers a broad variety of benefits to your pet while being all-natural.

How Quickly Does It Work?

Colloidal silver is bioactive and fast acting. Generally, in 5 to 10 days, most pets see results.

Some symptoms of the treatment working may be your pet getting more sluggish. Your pet might become lazier than usual. Silver kills pathogens and your pet’s system will work to naturally excrete them.

Are There Any Side Effects for Pets?

Like any substance, colloidal silver should be used as directed and may have side effects – if used improperly. When administered in the recommended dose, it is quite safe and beneficial to your pet.

Colloidal silver has been consumed for over 120 years in different parts of the world, with a remarkable safety record.

In extremely rare cases of prolonged high doses by humans, silver has caused a blue/gray discoloration of the skin called argyria.

The few incidents of argyria have been associated with use of homemade silver-based products with consumption many times the recommended dosage, the over-use of silver salts, silver proteins or compounds, or exposure via inhalation of silver dust.

Although silver is a naturally occurring component of the human and animal diet, FDA regulations limit the labeling of dietary supplements. Silver is a naturally occurring trace element found in all mammalian milk, edible mushrooms, whole grains, spring water, saltwater and even tap water, among others.

Can I use Colloidal Silver with pregnant or nursing pets?

Please consult with your veterinarian to find out if colloidal silver is appropriate for your pregnant or nursing pet. Silver is a naturally occurring trace element in the animal diet and is found in all mammalian milk, spring water, etc.

Can Silver Immune Support be taken with medications?

Silver may interact with certain medications such as thyroxine, penicillamine, and quinolone etc. Speak to your veterinarian before administering colloidal silver to explore how it might affect the other medications your pet may be taking.

Is Silver Immune Support an engineered nanoparticle?

Silver Immune Support cannot be regarded as an ‘engineered nanoparticle’ because the silver ions and nano-clusters are in a naturally occurring equilibrium.


All in all, silver for pets has many advantages for felines, canines and other pets. It can quickly help combat numerous kinds of infections whether they are fungal, viral, or bacterial. Pharmaceutical antibiotics and drugs can be loaded with different toxins and may cause side effects that can harm your pet more than help.

While the debate over the benefits of colloidal silver continues, it’s widespread use all over the world for over 120 years – with a wealth of testimonials – is strong evidence of it being an effective natural medicine.

Our suggestion is simply that you speak with your vet. Discuss with them about the possible risks of pharmaceutical treatments and why you think colloidal silver can benefit your pet, and  avoid the negative effects of veterinary drug treatments.
