Considerations for Home Treatment with Colloidal Silver:


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, 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. 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 internal pharmaceutical medicines and/or topical and oral dose antibiotics, plus man-made topical ointments.


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


There will always be a place for emergency heroic treatments and western medicine is highly effective at these, though they focus on suppressing symptoms. On the other hand, holistic natural treatments tend to be primarily preventative and seek treatment of causal factors for illness while tending to the symptoms.


Avoid “whack-a-mole” veterinary care.


Treating our pets when they are sick or injured is a big responsibility. It may seem obvious to treat the cause of an illness instead of only the symptoms – but in reality the status quo is oftentimes suppression of symptoms. Modern allopathic medicine can have rapid heroic results but sometimes fails to treat the underlying cause of the disease. 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 man-made 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. 


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 probiotic bacteria. This negatively impacts gut health and immune function. 


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

The silver ions in the silver colloid solution attack this enzyme process and kill the pathogen/germ from within. Subsequently, these pathogens are not able to use oxygen and pass away.


The Many Uses of Silver for Pet Ailments


Colloidal silver for pets has many internal and external applications.

Be sure your pet drinks plenty of water during the first week because large numbers of pathogens may be rapidly exterminated within the body and the excretory systems work tirelessly to flush out the dead germs.

Dose and Techniques.


All in all, you can utilize colloidal silver in a number of ways owing to its variety of usages.


Topical Usage.


You can use the colloidal silver solution in a spray bottle and utilize a cotton bud to clean up the affected area. Topical usage is suggested when your pet has any bites, injuries, or skin conditions. Since it does not sting or burn, you can use it as a compress.




To treat any respiratory or breathing problems, we suggest that you nebulize or use the fine mist pump. For effective treatment, utilize it on your pet 3 times a day for 5 to 10 days.


Ear Drops.


You can use the colloidal silver water solution in the form of an ear drop too. Normally, we recommend that you utilize it for about 10 days to treat an ear infection. It helps fight the infection and it helps prevent return of the infection.


Eye Drops.


Colloidal silver can also help treat eye problems like infections, allergies, inflammation and tear staining. It can be applied directly without worrying about it stinging your pet’s eyes. To use it, apply 2 to 3 fine mist pumps three times a day into the affected eye or follow the advice of your holistic veterinarian.


When misting the eye(s), tilt the head away from center and apply toward the inside of the eye so that the solution exits the outer corner of the eye. This avoids infecting the other eye.


Oral Dose.


We highly suggest that you utilize the colloidal solution direct into your pets mouth. The solution practically has no taste, so you can attempt feeding it to them via a spoon or a squeeze bulb syringe. Another option is to give them the dose added to Distilled Water (inexpensive and readily available at most grocery markets) in replacement for your pet’s regular water. Unlike purified, mineral, or tap water, distilled water won’t change the efficacy of the solution.


The dosage is dependent on the size of the pet.

Generally, we suggest the following HEALTH MAINTENANCE DOSES:


  • 2 to 10 pounds.– 2-3 drops or fine mist sprays.
  • 11 to 25 pounds.– 4-5 drops or fine mist sprays.
  • 26 to 40 pounds.– 0.25 Tsp.
  • 41 to 55 pounds.– 0.5 Tsp.
  • 56 to 80 pounds.– 0.75 Tsp.
  • 101 to 200 lbs.– 1 Tsp.
  • 201 lbs. and over– 1.5 Tsp.


How to dose If your pet is currently dealing with an illness: 


We suggest that you increase the dose frequency up to seven times a day and must only be provided for 10 days.


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 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, colloidal silver 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 effective natural medicine.
