You and your four-legged best friend are playing fetch in the backyard when you hear the ice cream truck chiming in the distance. Your son pulls on your pant leg to ask for a few bucks, so you look away for just a second.
Then it happens… SQUIRREL! The tiny rodent catches your dog’s eye and he’s off running.
You dart after him as he turns the corner… then you hear it. The shrill sound of tires screeching sends a cold shiver down your spine. You call out for him as you come upon the scene. You’re too late. Your precious little furbaby has been hit by a car.
Thankfully, he’s still breathing. There’s time.
When a dog is hit by a car, you have a short window of time to get help. His body may have been badly injured. He may have broken bones. He may be bleeding externally or internally. And you can bet there’s inflammation.
We don’t like to think about such things, but it can happen to anyone. Maybe you didn’t realize the gate was left open or you’re on a walk and the leash breaks. It’s always best to be prepared for these and other emergencies.
We’ll cover car accidents in greater detail soon, but there are other dangers you should be aware of too. Some dangers may even seem benign until it’s almost too late. Let’s explore.
1. Vomiting and Diarrhea
Vomiting and diarrhea are two of the most common reasons why dog owners bring their pets to the vet. Because your pet can’t tell you what’s going on, it’s difficult to know why he or she is experiencing these symptoms -- and that can spell disaster. Vomiting and diarrhea are signs of a number of underlying problems that could kill or seriously injure your pet. The list includes, obstruction of the intestinal tract, organ dysfunction and more.
Many of our customers have successfully treated their dog’s vomiting and diarrhea without a trip to the vet, but sometimes the trip is necessary. In either case, you can take measures to stop the vomiting or diarrhea and address dangerous levels of dehydration with a natural remedy.
2. Poisonous Plants
Did you know that something as common as a houseplant can kill your dog? If you’re thinking you’re in the clear because you keep poinsettias out of the house, you’re wrong.
The dangers of poinsettias for pets have likely been exaggerated. In fact, there much more deadly plants that most people don’t even know about. These include lilies, tulip bulbs, azaleas, amaryllis and oleander. Symptoms vary based on the type of plant, but you can be on the lookout for vomiting, diarrhea, loss of appetite and convulsions. If you think your dog has been eating poisonous plants, either in your home or in the neighbor’s yard, act quickly to address your pet’s symptoms and head to the veterinarian to help flush the toxins out of your dog’s system.
3. Car Accident
You may think your dog is immune, but nearly 1.2 million dogs are killed on U.S. roads each year. That’s a staggering number. Of course, prevention is the ultimate goal. Don’t let your dog roam without a leash -- ever. Even if you’re just going from the car to the house, keep your dog by your side. If your dog does get hit, address any problems that can quickly be remedied and get to the vet right away.

Vomiting and Diarrhea -- We’ve been initiated into the 3 a.m. dog vomiting and diarrhea club ourselves… in fact, we’re card-carrying members. Somehow, Westin always seems to get sick in the middle of the night. It’s difficult to know when vomiting and diarrhea are true emergencies or passing things, so we’ve always kept our vomiting and diarrhea remedies on hand.
For diarrhea or vomiting, use the appropriate spray (once in the mouth daily until the condition resolves). If your dog is experiencing both vomiting and diarrhea, you may use both remedies at one spray each. In either or both cases, also use TonicPet #9 to help balance your pet’s bodily fluids to battle dangerous dehydration.
An emergency vet visit for vomiting, diarrhea and gastrointestinal upset can run anywhere from $500 to $8,000, so these remedies are a great place to start. And they’re effective too! Just look at what our customers have said:
SHE HAS BEEN SAVED!
I'm so happy to have found your homepathic remedies for my little Yorkie who is now happy and healthy. A year and a half ago she had 15 days to 2 months left to live, and now thanks to your remedies she has really been saved!
IT SEEMED TO HAVE AN IMMEDIATE EFFECT
My cat Buzzy had terrible anxiety and digestive problems for years, and nothing my vet suggested seemed to help at all. In desperation I ordered this "Vomiting" homeopathic remedy. It seemed to have an immediate effect - Buzzy has only vomited twice since we started this remedy several months ago. Prior to that he was vomiting every meal - I consider it a miraculous remedy for him!
Hit by a car or many other injuries -- No one wants to imagine this happening to their dog, but the right remedy can help your dog feel better until you can get to the vet. And if your dog is in critical condition, this remedy could give you the time you need to get to the vet.
If your dog is hit by a car or otherwise injured, administer the First Aid, Tonic #9 and get to the vet as soon as possible.
Here’s what our customers have to say about the First Aid remedy:
FIRST AID: ALMOST IMMEDIATE IMPROVEMENT IN THE DAY.
My 12 years old dog _who walked on 3 legs the morning following a sprain, was already walking with his 4 legs! First Aid: almost immediate improvement in the day.
The Vet said my cat injured his patella or ACL. She wanted to let the swelling go down and do surgery. As a nurse and a huge advocate of homeopathy, did a little research. I was beyond thrilled to discover I could have a free consultation on the phone about my boy’s injury. First aid was suggested. The day after administrating the spray, I noticed improvement and every day since. It’s been a little over a month, Rocky boy is running and playing with a slight limp. He still over does it and needs to rest but overall, I am thrilled. Homeopathy saved my cat surgery and me, added stress and expense.
All of the conditions listed above can be fatal, but none of the them have to be. Each one can easily be treated. What’s more, the cause of death in many cases isn’t the condition itself but the extreme dehydration from vomiting and diarrhea.
We’ve heard too many horror stories about dogs who have been lost to something that can be treated so simply. In every case, we wish we could have gotten involved sooner.
If only we could have told these dog owners about homeopathic remedies that can quickly limit the effects of dehydration by addressing vomiting and diarrhea. We may have saved a pup’s life.
Personally, I always keep these remedies on hand for Weston, and I’ve used them many times. Usually, his symptoms subside in the same day. Depending on the ailment, your dog may need further care, but the simple act of limiting dehydration can save your dog’s life.
Because the consequences can be so severe, we recommend that all dog owners keep these remedies on hand at all times. When vomiting or diarrhea strikes, be prepared. If your dog gets hit by a car or bit by another animal, be prepared.
When your dog is sick, you may not have much time. Be prepared with an Emergency Kit on hand!
