The dog has acidic blood. Its drinking water should have 1/2 teaspoon magnesium citrate per liter drinking water. Magnesium citrate is both alkalizing and magnesium is antagonistic to calcium. If the dog is taking any snacks or carbohydrates in its diet because children or adults feed them all the time it leads to hypercalcemia also. Carbohydrate diets are forbidden in dog foods and also snacks, that's why the zoos have signs don't feed the animals, they become addictive too.

My dog weighs 65 pounds. The last blood work showed she has very high calcium levels in her blood. I gave her the magnesium citrate as you told me too, and I have seen some improvement. What I would like to know is, given her weight, how much magnesium can I give her per day to keep her calcium level down? The vet also diagnosed with cancer (G-d forbid), I think Lymphoma. I am giving her all the treatments you have recommended (reshi mushroom, astragalus, lysine... etc etc). Please let me know how much magnesium per day I should give her. Also, is anything I can do to help with her nausea and lack of appetite? Netta"

07/15/2012: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "For the dog's appetite, I would give the dog B50 b complex at one a day, and vitamin C, because the reason why is the liver normally produces this, but in a sick dog, it doesn't. And stay away from all fats, the visible fats in a dog. Acetylation is needed by the dog, that is in form of vinegar, a simple way is to pour vinegar on the dog and it will detox that way. As far as magnesium citrate, 1/8 twice a day is the maximum I am willing to go for most dogs.

Dear Ted, Since I have been giving my dog the Magnesium you recommended I have seen improvement, and since starting her on your protocol with the reishi mushroom, astralagus, lysine, vitamins etc etc I have seen even more improvements. Thank you!!! I still need to force feed her because she still doesn't have much of an appetite. I hope that will get better in time. I wanted to ask you, I saw that you recommend giving Threonine to dogs that are weak. Will that help her back legs get better? She still seems a bit weak there (she is a bit reluctant to climb the stairs). Normally she is a very high active dog that loves to run."

07/16/2012: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "The reason why the dog is weak is the liver is depleted of B complex vitamins, mostly, and N acetyl cysteine to some extent, and selenium. So I would give B50, N acetyl cysteine, and some selenium for a week and so he will be able to eat. The threonine helps the intestinal villi as well as some nerves that communicate with the legs.


07/26/2012: Netta replies: "Dear Ted, I think my dog may have Cachexia. I wanted to know what your recommended protocol for helping dogs in this situation. Iodine, hydrochloric acid, potassium and sodium carbonate, bicarbonate, H202? Can these be used on a dog? Would the dosage be adjusted according to the weight?"

07/26/2012: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "The best thing for a dog, is to support the digestive system and intestinal issue, such as B50 b complex, betaine HCl, Superoxide Dismutase (SOD), and digestive enzyme supplements, if cachexia is needed to be resolved. It might help if progesterone cream is physically applied too. B complex is given twice a day, betaine is added a bit in water, superoxide dismutase I prefer in the powdered form mixed at 1 tablespoon per 250 cc. SOD will help reactivate the stomach and the intestines in about 5 to 10 minutes, and get the dog able to eat within a few hours. Digestive enzymes will help the digestive tract, it may also help if vitamin C is given.
