Benefits of Colloidal Silver for Dogs (and More)


Let me share the benefits of colloidal silver along with something that's safer and works even better. I love it more than I did when I started using it 5 years ago.     

Ice doesn't mind taking Silver Shield and neither does my Lulu. It's so easy to use for dogs I love it.

. . . By now you probably know the drawbacks to antibiotics. If not, you can check out antibiotic side effects and come back here. I'll wait. . .

Okay now you know.

But what might come as a surprise is the sheer number of advantages there are to keeping this stuff on hand and I will gladly share that with you.

First a quick note: Although every maker of colloidal silver tries to pull you to buy their brand, not all products are created equal. Some can actually be dangerous so you have to know who to trust. Let's talk about the good stuff first.


The Benefits of Colloidal Silver & Silver Shield


While the benefits of colloidal silver and Silver Shield are similar, Silver Shield uses a patented technology which needs far less silver while working even better than either colloidal or ionic silver. In fact, there is such a minute amount of silver, it can be used far more often. Even daily without any adverse affects.

Silver Shield is a great remedy for dogs because it kills bad bacteria where antibiotics kill the good bacterial along with the bad which  causes even more damage to the gut microbiome than originally believed. In addition antibiotics leave the body in a weakened state so it can pick up the next bacterial or viral agent that comes along.

It's also antiviral and antifungal which makes it perfect when dealing with more than one issue or if you're not sure which it is. It can be taken internally or applied externally. It even kills germs in the kitchen without any of those nasty side effects of chemicals that add up in your body and your dog's body. Cool huh?


What I Use Silver Shield For


I've come to rely on Silver Shield and keep finding new uses for it. I've even cured a hamster and a fungus on my favorite houseplant. Seriously. I'm not saying it's a miracle cure. And it often works best in conjunction with other natural remedies. Still, I never run out.

Here are some conditions I suggest it for along with page links so you can investigate further.

  • My dog Lulu got an ugly swollen lump between her toes which really surprised me. Here is how I used it for a dog infection.
  • Dogs tend to get yeast infections in their ears after repeated use of antibiotics or may be prone to them for other reasons including low quality foods. Here's how simple it is to treat a dog ear yeast infection with Silver Shield.
  • Lyme Disease can be prevented or cured. Prevention is best since curing takes some time but read how to prevent it if your dog has recently been bitten by a tick.
  • Use along with a dog dewormer program because if your dog is plagued by worms there are also going to be other pathogens in him as well. 
  • What about dog bite wound care? I can breath easier knowing I can avoid my dogs getting an abscess. 

I think that gives you a good list don't you? Can I think of any other benefits of Silver Shield? You bet. It's practically tasteless so dogs don't mind. Plus when using an oral syringe you can quickly give it by mouth. Very helpful if you have a dog who avoids taking pills.

And if you're curious how I used it for a hamster, here's the story. I was taking care of my daughter's three-year-old hamster (inappropriately named Killer because she was a sweetheart who even gave kisses). Anyway, Killer came out of her little den looking horrible. She had facial swelling and couldn't even stand up straight.

I panicked. Then not knowing what else to do I put one drop of Silver Shield on her favorite thing, cheese. She licked off the drop, left the cheese and went back to bed. Within 8 hours she was herself again. Honestly I was shocked it worked so well but I sure was grateful. I gave her a few more doses just to be sure.

Killer went on to live for four years which is pretty old for a hamster. Talk about the benefits of using something from the cupboard that never goes bad.  Wow.


Why I Only Use NSP Silver Shield


While similar products can be found, they may actually be detrimental to dog health (and human of course).

Why? Well sometimes products can be misrepresented. I learned from Dr. Mercola there are three things sold as colloidal silver.

  1. Ionic silver
  2. Silver protein
  3. True colloidal

Silver protein can actually be dangerous and and turn the skin blue because of a too-high silver content. Ionic silver is less potent. You can read more in this article on Dr. Mercola's website.

And last but not least I am a distributor for NSP. If you are a regular here at Three Little Pitties you know the reason. I did my homework and chose Nature's Sunshine because I trust the products and use them myself. I always go by the three P's. Purity, Potency and Price. (It's easy to get a discount.)

If you'd like to add this you your home remedies, I'll give you a link. Heads up if you're new to Nature's Sunshine, and want the discount. If your first purchase is at least $40 at the discount price, you don't have to pay retail. Simply sign up as a member at checkout.

Oh, I almost forgot. Here's the link for Silver Shield.

And if you'd like to know the scientific difference between what I recommend and colloidal silver, check out my page called Silver Sol .

Remember the benefits of colloidal silver is good but Silver Shield is the supreme winner in this category.
