For health benefits and preventative measure, Liezel gets some extra stuff in her bowl. Here are some of the things we give her.
Apple Cinder Vinegar (with the ‘mother’): acts as a natural antibiotic, improves digestion, and helps repel fleas and ticks. I pour about a tablespoon on her food a couple times / week.
Coconut Oil: among a whole host of other health benefits, coconut oil contains antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal agents that prevent infection and disease. She gets a tablespoon in her bowl a few times / month.
Diatomaceous Earth (food-grade): among many health benefits, DE is said to kill internal parasites. DE can also be used topically as flea prevention. I sprinkle a teaspoon or so on her food once / week.
Oil of Oregano: contains antimicrobial, antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal agents. For the past three months she has gotten four drops twice / day.
Pumpkin Seeds (ground): effective deworming agent against tapeworms and other intestinal parasites. She used to get it daily, but now I sprinkle a tablespoon or so on her food a few times / month.
Apple cider vinegar in a glass of water, coconut oil for cooking and baking, diatomaceous earth in a smoothie, and pumpkin seeds as a snack, aside from the oil of oregano, we have ingested all of these ourselves. We’re all pretty healthy over here.
