MMS CDL CDH for animals –
MMS / CDS / CDL / CDH chlorine dioxide for animals
While I address MMS dosing for humans on other pages, I am compiling experiences and dosing on the subject of MMS / CDH (CDS / CDL) dosing for animals. DMSO and DMKB or MKB Vital are also explained here.
MMS / CDL chlorine dioxide for animals is not a new topic, because what helps humans, also works for animals.
These experiences do not constitute a veterinary prescription or advice. The same applies here: Use at your own risk . Chlorine dioxide is not approved as a drug.
Tip: I use distilled water or reverse osmosis water to dilute MMS / CDL or CDH3000, if possible, because tap water may need some chlorine dioxide for itself due to impurities and thus less power.
I have listed experiences with the following problems:
Allergies in dogs, cats and horses
Inflammation of the eyes
Barfen- a danger?
Vaginal discharge with pus
The list is not exhaustive and will be expanded with new experiences.
Activation of MMS – chlorine dioxide:
If I use sodium chlorite 25% and hydrochloric acid 4% solutions, so the MMS – (also Chlorine dioxide set called), I put 2 drops of sodium chlorite 25% in a clean, dry glass. Then I add a drop of 4% hydrochloric acid to the glass. When the two drops come together, they react to form chlorine dioxide. Meanwhile, I wait about 20-30 seconds. The liquid first turns yellowish and then a little brownish. The chlorine dioxide gas is already released at this moment. It is this gas that is the actual active ingredient of “MMS”. At the end of this process, I have 2 drops of activated MMS / chlorine dioxide. The method shown relates to the “acid-reduced variant”, which I would generally choose. Experience has shown that this amount, i.e. half of the acid, is completely sufficient to activate the mixture and not to “over-acidify” it.
Now I immediately fill the glass with water. It should be at least twice the amount of sodium chlorite I use in water, but measured in milliliters instead of drops. In this example it would be 1 drop of sodium chlorite diluted with at least 2 ml of water. More water is always better than too little. Then I can put everything in the food / drinking water or with a syringe without a cannula in the mouth (in the lip).
But I can also produce a durable mixture of activated chlorine dioxide, which is then called “CDH” = (chlorine dioxide durable). That saves me from having to activate it again and again.
IMPORTANT: NEVER USE activated MMS ONLY. Always add enough water!
At least 2 ml of water per activated drop of MMS. This also applies to pre-purchased CDH (CDS / CDL). Here, however, add at least 2 ml of water per 1 milliliter of CDH. Always dilute in a glass of water when ingested. More water is better here too.
Add at least 4 ml of water to 2 activated drops of MMS (2 drops of 25% sodium chlorite + 1 drop of 4% hydrochloric acid).
Dosing of CDH3000 (CDL) for animals
CDH stands for Chlorine D ioxide H olding (Chlorine Dioxide Durable). It is a hybrid between the classic MMS and the usually expensive CDS or CDL. CDH is a mixture of MQL. It contains a little more chlorine dioxide than the self-mixed MMS because it is activated over a longer period of time in a sealed container. This makes it easier to digest and more evenly active. Because the conventional MQL / chlorine dioxide mixture may release even more chlorine dioxide when it comes into contact with acid in the body, which can lead to tolerance fluctuations. This is no longer the case with CDH because it has been “fully activated” for a long time. People and animals with stomach problems appreciate this very much. Some people can also dose CDH a little higher until they reach their nausea limit.
CDH is already available as a ready-made mixture. I use the CDH3000, to which all of my explanations here also refer.
MMS or CDH (CDS / CDL)?
Here are the advantages of CDH compared to the drop method of MMS at a glance:
- It tastes a little better because the amount is less and the gas no longer rises into the nose, as it does when you activate it again. Because, as is well known, smell is also taste.
I like to fill it up with juice for my own use. With animals, I just use water.
- Less stomach problems in more sensitive people / animals
- The “limit of nausea” is higher.
- Already activated, stored correctly, can be used for up to 6 months.
- It oxidizes more continuously / more evenly and thus brings even better results.
- A storage bottle, for example with 500 ml, is enough for 24 ml daily for almost 21 days.
- Short preparation time.
Improving the taste of MMS / CDH (CDL)
Stevia has also been used successfully to improve the taste of the solution. You just add it depending on your taste. Of course, juices (if possible without added vitamin C or ascorbic acid) or other drinks are also available Tea or soy milk a good opportunity.
Dosing of MMS / CDL for animals
MMS / CDH / CDL dosage in animals:
In the dosage table on the page “CDH, like MMS only easier” you will find a reference point for the standard amount that I use for the respective body weight of the animals.
Dosage according to weight for children and animals:
Here is my basic formula:
1 ml per 12 kg of body weight – e.g. in children / small animals (up to 45 kg body weight)
In animals, I divide the dosage into just 3 doses per day. In severe cases and inflammation that cannot be controlled, possibly more often. In severe cases I have already used 1.5 to 3 times the amount given in ml.
Add water, don’t forget: Always add at least the same amount of water to the milliliters of CDH. Of course, more water is always possible if the animal can or wants to ingest it.
Always start the dosage with the smallest unit at the beginning (1 drop of MMS or 1 ml CDH per dose) and see how it is tolerated. In an emergency only, I would try to start dosing as high as possible.
In the case of very serious illnesses, I can increase both the amount of CDH and the frequency of intake. In the most severe cases, the frequency can be increased up to 12 times a day. Of course, here too, as always, I see how the person concerned is doing.
Variant 1: Internal gift, only with CDH:
- Chronic diseases in small animals –
At the beginning, a small dose is generally started and then increased if necessary. Here is a non-binding example for:
Dosage on the first day:
Give 1 ml CDH + water 3 times a day (if the body weight requires the amount).
If this is well tolerated,
Dosage on the second day:
Give 2 ml CDH + water 3 times a day (if the body weight requires the amount).
If this is also well tolerated,
Dosage on the third day :
Give 3 ml CDH + water 3 times a day (if the body weight requires the amount).
It is important to stay below the nausea line.
If nausea occurs, I lower the amount back to the amount that was well tolerated and then pass it on for 1 or 2 days. Then try, in the further course, to increase the amount again to the targeted amount.
If the goal is reached, I will pass it on for another 1-2 days. An improvement should take place within 3 weeks at the latest. It is important to always check the condition.
Dosage according to weight over 200 kg
For animals that are heavier than 200 kg, the general formula is:
1 drop of activated MMS per 25 kg body weight or when using CDH =
1 ml (milliliter) CDH3000 per 25 kg body weight.
MMS / CDH (CDL) for animals – Reinforced by DMSO
DMSO enhances the effects of MMS or CDH.
It can therefore make sense to reinforce / supplement these substances with DMSO.
For this I take at least 4 times the amount of DMSO (but measured in drops.
Example: If I use 3 ml CDH3000, I add 12 drops of DMSO 100.
12 drops Incidentally, DMSO corresponds to approximately 1 ml. However, it depends on the size of the dropper. In this case, I could measure and use 1 ml DMSO instead of the 12 drops.
I always add Dasa DMSO100 just before taking it. This can result in the following procedure:
1.) Put 6 ml of water in a glass
2.) Add 3 ml CDH3000
3.) Add 1 ml DMSO before taking (approx. 12 drops)
4.) Give immediately.
Application examples of MMS / CDL CDH in animals
Now to the methods of application in animals
Method 1: MMS / chlorine dioxide internally
For animals that drink up to 2 percent of their body weight in water every day:
1 activated drop of MMS per 12 kg of body weight. This corresponds to approx. 1 ml. CDH3000 per kg body weight. This formula is valid up to 200 kg body weight, as explained above.
For animals that are heavier than 200 kg, the general formula is yes:
1 drop of activated MMS per 25 kg body weight or when using CDH:
1 ml CDH 3000 per 25 kg body weight.
Here is an example:
Body weight 550 kg = 22 drops (550: 25 = 22 drops or 22 ml CDH 3000)
It is always important to watch the animal. If he gets diarrhea, I stop using it until it’s over and then continue with a lower dose, which was previously well tolerated. If the animal gets worse after the administration, this can be an initial aggravation, which should then improve over the course of the day.
Number of gifts:
In the case of diseases caused by bacteria, 2-3 doses per day are usually sufficient.
If the situation does not improve after 3 days, there could be another problem.
For diseases that are understood in connection with “viruses”, more doses per day may be necessary. The additional gift of MKB Vital or DMKB from my observation could also be helpful here.
CDH / CDL solutions and, above all, MMS
never give the animal pure!
Always add at least the same amount of water that I give to CDH, but it is better to add more.
With MMS always add at least the same number of milliliters that I use as an amount in drops.
If the dilution is too low, mucous membranes could otherwise be affected.
For CDH, CDS and CDL:
Add at least the same amount in milliliters of water per ml of the solution. So for example 3 ml CDH + 3 ml water.
Add the same amount of water as the number of drops of sodium chlorite, but in milliliters. Example: activate 4 drops of sodium chlorite + 2 drops of hydrochloric acid (acid-reduced variant). Now add 8 ml of water to this activated solution. Here the amount of water in milliliters is based on the amount of sodium chlorite, which is measured in drops. The sodium chlorite is always the basis for assessment here.
More water is always better. Also in terms of better taste. By the way, some animals also like apple juice.
- Possibility: add drops to the food with the glass of water or put them into already moistened food. Wheat bran has proven its worth in horses. Applesauce has also been used. In oats it should not be accepted in part.
- Possibility: Put the activated drops filled with water into the mouth with a mouth syringe. The best way to do this with dogs is to let them lie on their side and first stroke and calm them down. Then open the lip slightly. Now you can simply drip the mixture of CDH, DMSO and MKB with water slowly into it from the syringe. I would do this as quickly as possible but as slowly as necessary. Afterwards, praise or treats for the animal should not be missing. Caressing them again ensures that the gifts will be fondly remembered. Under no circumstances should the mixture be administered so that the animal swallowed!
- Possibility: Put the mixture in a bowl with one liter of water and let it drink straight away. However, this does not work for all animals.
Method 2: external application
I have a sprayer bottle (with a capacity of 100 ml), a small funnel and approx. 100 ml of distilled water ready. Now I add 99 ml of water to the bottle through the funnel. Then I activate 20 drops of sodium chlorite 25% with 10 drops of hydrochloric acid 4% in a clean, dry glass. After the color change from yellowish to brownish (amber), I fill it through the funnel into the 100 ml sprayer bottle and close it immediately. After vigorous shaking, the spray can then be used immediately.
Make your own spray from CDH3000 (CDL):
First add 50 ml of distilled water to the spray bottle and then simply add 50 ml of pure CDH3000 and close the bottle with the spray attachment. Then I can use it right away.
If I want to mix an even weaker spray (very sensitive skin), I only take 20 ml CDH 3000 into the 100 ml spray bottle previously filled with 80 ml distilled water. Shake well before use.
Applying CDH3000 (CDL) to the skin:
I spray the affected areas extensively with the spray as often as possible. I apply the spray every 15 minutes in severe, painful cases. Possible applications can be pain at this point, or a wound with bleeding, as well as redness and irritation of the skin.
In general, however, a four-time application in one day is sufficient. Sometimes, however, a total of 3 applications is sufficient. The frequency of the applications depends on the development.
Enhancement of the effect with DMSO:
Before I use DMSO, I test it on a small spot in about 50% solution. If the area becomes very red and itchy, I reduce the amount and proceed carefully. However, I haven’t heard of any problems with this solution.
In order to intensify the chlorine dioxide spray, the same area can then be sprayed with DMSO70% after spraying. To do this, I put 50 ml of DMSO100 in a 100 ml spray bottle and fill it up with 50 ml of distilled water. So I have a 50% spray. In some shops you can buy DMSO 50% already mixed. If this is well tolerated, which is usually the case, I can increase the amount of DMSO in the next mixture. A DMSO 70% is ideal for me. I recognize the tolerance by the reddening of the skin and the itching. If both are too strong (itching and redness), I spray the area again with the chlorine dioxide spray to dilute the DMSO again. Or I just use water for this.
What is DMSO?
DMSO is a so-called “penetration enhancer” and can strengthen the chlorine dioxide both internally and externally and bring it in more deeply. In this case, I first prepare the chlorine dioxide mixture, add the liquid and only add the DMSO shortly before the administration.
But DMSO also has astonishing effects on its own. It apparently regenerates cells, opens the cell membranes to important substances and opens them to release waste that has to leave the cells. It not only has a regenerative effect on the body cells, but also supplies them. Thus, a single internal administration of DMSO 3 times a day would also be beneficial. I use 1 ml for every 70 kg of body weight.
You can find more about DMSO in the menu under “ DMSO “.
Internal administration of MMS / CDH (CDL) to the animal
Whether for so-called “infections”, in addition to deworming or other diseases: I also use CDH3000 or MMS on animals. The rule of thumb for animals that weigh more than 11 kg to max. Weighing 200 kg: one drop of activated MMS or 1 ml CDH3000 per 12 kg body weight, twice a day for “normal” symptoms.
For problems that are attributed to “viruses”, I use it 3-4 times a day. Here, too, of course, I keep an eye on the animal’s well-being and only slowly increase the number of drops at the beginning. I start with one drop for my animals, 3 times a day and, depending on the weight of the animal, increase the dose up to the target amount. I dilute the solution further for animals weighing less than 1 kg.
How does the MMS or CDH get into the dog?
Variant 1 – MMS / CDH (CDL) in drinking water:
I add the respective number of drops of activated MMS to the drinking water. Some dogs and animals intuitively drink it up completely. If the whole amount of MMS or CDH is not drunk in water because the dog drinks very irregularly throughout the day, I use a different approach.
Instead of the MMS or CDH, I only use sodium chlorite alone and inactive. I take the number of drops of sodium chlorite that are necessary for 4 doses a day and add these alone to the drinking water. So I only use the sodium chlorite alone and no activator. This is because the sodium chlorite activates itself over time in the water and by lowering the pH in the dog’s body. When you drink it, it gets into the acidic environment of the body and stomach, where it is then activated. If the illness is very serious, I increase the frequency or the amount, from 4 to 5 times a day. The effect is delayed with this method, but is very lasting.
Variant 2 – MMS / CDH (CDL) in the oral syringe:
Every hour I give the dog the calculated amount of activated MMS or CDH, diluted with pure water, in a syringe in the mouth. This variant is certainly the most effective for major health problems. I lay the dog on its side and drop the solution with the syringe into the mouth under the lip as slowly as necessary and as quickly as possible. To do this, simply fold up the lip and drip onto the gums. The dog should not choke on it, so be careful.
Option 3 – let it lick off
I spray the dog the amount of MMS or CDH, diluted with water, that it should have, 8 times a day, on an area of its coat that it will get well received. Some dogs then lick it off there. This also works very well with cats. It always depends on the individual. Otherwise, other creativity may help.
Variant 4 – on the skin:
I spray the dog the amount of MMS or CDH diluted with water that it is supposed to get 3 times a day over a large area on several areas of its coat. See spray. I massage it through the fur with my fingers so that it hits the skin. Immediately afterwards I drip DMSO (50-70% best to test) on the skin and distribute it as well. Sometimes I also use DMSO100 for this. When I apply this there, it triggers a warming reaction on the area, which further intensifies the effect. This is normal and is usually also perceived as pleasant. If this warming is not desired, I use DMSO 50 or 70%.
Variant 5 – sausage / bread:
The drops mixed with water are drizzled onto a piece of bread and coated with liver sausage.
Variant 7 – Quark – yogurt mixture:
The drops are stirred into a quark, yoghurt or grainy cream cheese. Some cats like this too.
Variant 8 – milk:
I give the amount in milk instead of water if the animal can digest milk well.
Dosing of MMS / CDH (CDL) for animals
I give one activated drop of MMS or 1 ml CDH3000 for every 12 kg of body weight. Here is an example: If a dog weighs 24 kg, the amount to be consumed would be 2 drops of activated MMS or 2 ml of CDH3000 in 4 ml of water. I then give this solution, diluted with water, 3 times a day. So that’s a total of 6 drops of activated MMS or 6 ml of CDH3000 spread over the day.
If I put it on a drinking bowl filled with water, it should not necessarily be made of metal or PET. A glass bowl would be very good. This does not only apply to the administration of MMS or CDH via the drinking bowl. In general, I would avoid metal bowls for water and, if possible, always use a glass or porcelain bowl for animals.
External treatment of animals with MMS / CDH
To do this, I use the MMS spray 3 times a day (20 drops applied to 100 ml of water or CDH3000 mixed with 50% water). An envelope would also be an option. For this variant, I take a cloth moistened with the MMS solution (10 activated drops of MMS in 125 ml of water) and fix it with a bandage on the appropriate place. The correct dressing technique must of course be observed so that the cloth also holds. After 20 minutes, however, you should remove it again so that the area gets air again and dries. If necessary, I watch the dog long enough for the bandage to last for this time.
DMSO in the treatment of animals
DMSO in animal treatment
DMSO, with its excellent properties, is of course also suitable for treating animals. I can test the tolerance to DMSO beforehand with a drop by simply wiping it on the dog’s skin or on his cheek. If everything is ok after 2 hours, I can use it.
The maximum amount for internal administration should not be more than 0.5 ml per KG body weight per day. This is also not necessary. With larger amounts of DMSO, I limit the dose to 3 days a week in order to give the body a break.
For example, I could give my dog with a body weight of 20 kg a maximum of 10 ml DMSO 70% daily. Of course, I would slowly increase myself to this amount and distribute it over several gifts. Some dogs even simply and happily lick the DMSO 70% out of their hands when I offer it to them. To do this, of course, he must first try it. To do this, I can put a few drops on my finger and let him lick them off or smear them on the lip.
Otherwise I use a syringe (without a cannula) with my animals and draw up the amount of DMSO with a little water. Then I slowly drip this mixture into my mouth (see mouth syringe). For external treatment, I first spray the area with MMS spray (20 activated drops per 100 ml) or CDH3000 diluted 50% with water) so that it is clean. This can also be useful because DMSO could introduce tiny particles into the body that could be on the surface. Of course, this does not refer to large substances, but only to those that could penetrate the skin anyway. Then I drip DMSO on the spot and spread it out a bit with my fingers.
Applications of CDL MMS chlorine dioxide in animals
ABC of application for animals:
Please also see generally in the “ ABC of applications ” to. There you will find even more empirical values. For animals, the dosages just have to be downscaled. You can find a table as a guide under the heading: CDH, like MMS just easier.
Allergy in dogs, cats and horses
Allergy is an exuberant reaction to something actually normal. It can be expressed in fits of sneezing, rashes with or without itching, and also diarrhea. The causes of an allergy can lie in poor nutrition, environmental pollution, “antibiotic treatments”, heavy metal pollution and constant irritation. The mental constitution of the dog owner can also affect the animal. Some animals react with allergies, especially when it comes to dry food. In my opinion, this is not suitable for cats anyway, as cats drink too little for dry food. If itching, however, you should also think about the natural coat change before an allergy. Some animals then itch a lot, others not at all. Of course, the itching is then “calmed” by scratching. The cause is then the “normal coat change”. Some dogs also have an unpleasant odor when they are changing their coat. That can also be a good indication. Some dogs have a metabolic problem and therefore also have problems with their coat. Here, too, the phenomenon can occur and not only during the time of the coat change.
Treatment of skin changes and itching
First, I put the dog to be treated in a bathtub or shower tray. If necessary, it can also be used outdoors, for example in the garden, if it is not too cold. I fill a 5 liter bucket with lukewarm water and add 20 ml to it CDH3000 added. Then I use a mug to slowly spread the solution over the dog. With a cat, this variant will probably be a little more difficult. But I think that a massaging application of the solution can also succeed here with feeling. I spread it through my fur by stroking it with my hand so that the solution gets onto the skin. Once the dog has been completely rinsed, the first wash is complete. Now only leave it on for a few minutes. Then the dog can be dried off. Improvements should be seen after the first wash and skin problems should go away. If there is no success, I would repeat this washing again. According to the principle “inside and outside”, I would also give the dog the appropriate dose of CDH internally. I judge the amount according to the table in the column: “CDH, like MMS only easier”. I also like to add MKB Vital and DMSO here to optimize the effect. Instead, I can use the “DMKB” solution even more easily. I always use a third of the amount that I use on the CDH3000. That is very easy.
“Death is in the intestine, but also life”
For me, allergies always have something to do with the intestines. Especially when it comes to toxins, a dirty intestinal environment or exposure to heavy metals, bentonite is my choice. It also relieves the liver, kidneys and intestines when working with chlorine dioxide. Toxins are then not only oxidized, but also effectively and sustainably discharged. Therefore, a good chlorine dioxide application for me is always accompanied by bentonite. I wrote something about bentonite that I consider to be very important and existential for health. Bentonite not only binds heavy metals and pesticide residues. It also takes harmful bacteria, mold toxins and even radioactive particles out of the body! Once the body and intestines have got rid of their “rubbish”, other complaints will often appear automatically. At least that’s my observation. I give bigger dogs half a teaspoon of bentonite powder mornings and evenings, spread on the lips or mixed with a little water, as a porridge in the food. Small dogs, as well as cats, get a knife full. I use about a tablespoon for horses. You too are welcome to bring your experiences with you!
Barfen- a danger?
Proper nutrition for dogs and cats through barps?
“Barfen” means to feed the dog raw meat, fish and vegetables. Many dog owners swear by it. The barf is based on the diet of wolves, the ancestors of our dogs. As I wrote in a newsletter back then, there are also dangers with this type of feeding. Recently there has even been a study on this. According to this, barfing bears the risk of diseases for dogs and their owners.
The question of the “right nutrition” for one’s own dog arises again and again. You can choose from: wet, dry feed or the “biologically appropriate raw feed” – called “barps”. Many pet owners have already made the experience that animals fed raw meat, fish and vegetables are less sick and have a particularly shiny coat.
On the other hand, there are concerns that “viruses”, parasites and bacteria that survive in raw meat could lead to disease. Any multi-resistant bacteria that may be present could become a problem. This is what this study says.
Multi-resistant bacteria in raw feed
Scientists have examined several samples of dry, wet and raw dog food of different brands. The raw feed examined mainly consisted of salmon, turkey, chicken, veal, deer or duck in combination with various vegetables and fruits. In all nine samples, the researchers found enterococci, which can cause infections in people with weakened immune systems. These include those enterococcal strains that would be resistant to many antibiotics.
In the processed dry and wet food, only half (dry food) and nine percent (wet food) had enterococci.
Cooking for disinfection?
Cooking the raw feed, which is thawed before it is fed, could kill multi-resistant bacteria. However, that is of course not the point of natural food.
For this reason I just use this one CDH3000 in a spray bottle and spray the food beforehand. I mix the chlorine dioxide spray with the meat. It will be disinfected within 2-3 minutes.
After this short waiting period, the chlorine dioxide odor has dissipated so far that the dog will then eat it.
Also, before disinfecting the raw meat, I had the problem that the dogs did not touch it. Apparently, did you notice or smell the excessive contamination? But this changed after the disinfection. In addition, I add 4-5 drops of this MKB Vital and a pinch of pepper to the food and mix everything well. According to my observations, both are quite good against viruses and parasites. The magnesium in MKB Vital also strengthens muscles, joints and tissues. The CDH is also very suitable for disinfecting the work surface. However, it should be well sealed so that it does not discolour wood countertops, for example. If discoloration is to be excluded, I dilute it halfway with water. With this type of disinfection, “viruses”, bacteria and parasites such as salmonella, tapeworms and “toxoplasmas” can neither be dangerous to dogs nor to humans.
Treat fish with CDH (CDL)
CDH / MMS for fish:
Unfortunately, our aquarium companions also have diseases or parasites. CDH or MMS can also be used here.
There have been very good experiences in aquariums. So it was used against Ichthyosporea or Mesomycetozoae, these are single-celled organisms. They often live parasitically on aquatic organisms such as fish. It could affect the entire population in the aquarium.
Of course, you can start with less ml and increase slowly.
1.) Treatment in aquarium water:
1 ml CDH 3000 for every 10 liters of water. For a 200 liter aquarium that would be 20 ml, 3 times a day for 5-6 days.
With MMS / chlorine dioxide set it would be: 1 activated drop per 10 liters of water. As a reminder: Mixing ratio: 1: 0.5 (sodium chlorite 25% to hydrochloric acid 4%). So 1 drop of sodium chlorite and 0.5 drop of hydrochloric acid.
Spread the finished mixture into the basin (not at certain points) so that it mixes and spreads.
Reactions that can occur briefly in the fish are light snapping or twitching for a few seconds and initially subdued behavior. After about 15 minutes this phase is over and the fish swim lively and fresh through the tank.
2.) Provision for fish:
As a precaution, the above-mentioned amount of 1 ml (CDH3000 for every 10 liters of water) can be added to the basin once a week.
Please note that the amount of chlorine dioxide must not be excessive depending on the size of the fish. Acute fish toxicity LD50:> 100 mg / l. Above this concentration, 50% of the fish died. With the dosage mentioned above, however, we are far below that.
3.) Water purification in the fish tank
You can also clean the water with bentonite powder. This can help with algae and infestation of the fish with “red spots”. Put 1 tbsp on the surface of the water. It sinks to the bottom and binds the toxins present in the water.
Check housing conditions
Of course, the housing conditions must be checked:
- pH value compliance.
- Water quality and purity (it is best to use reverse osmosis water).
- no overfeeding.
- New fish should first be disinfected with CDH in a quarantine tank before being placed in the tank.
- not too high a stocking.
Good luck and let me know how your aquarist is doing and how you proceeded. Experience helps everyone, especially when it comes to self-help.
Treating foal paralysis in horses with CDH (CDL):
Usually the foal can no longer get up to drink from the mare. Joints can swell. CDH3000 + DMSO + MKB Vital according to the body weight list (in the “ CDH, like MMS, just easier “) (per 25 kg body weight, 1 ml CDH) plus DMSO and MKB. Using DMKB is even easier. This is also listed in the table. 3 times a day for 10 days. If this is not enough, I would extend the time of taking it. The footbath method is also useful, see under “Limping”.
Treat limping with CDL / CDH
Every dog owner certainly knows it. Suddenly the dog limps while running. Sure, first of all you check your paws for injuries, punctures, etc. What if nothing can be found? Even if the movement of the leg does not indicate a strain or something like that?
Then there is a non-specific problem. So one that cannot be explained.
How can I proceed in such a situation? Here a simple possibility has emerged that I can use in such a case, namely the foot bath. Yes, it usually helps surprisingly well and quite quickly.
The foot bath is a great way to get the substances right to happen. They are then taken up into the tissues through the leg and eventually into the bloodstream.
This is how I do the foot bath for horses / dogs:
I use a vessel into which the hoof / leg fits as precisely as possible. Fill the vessel / bucket with lukewarm water so that the water is filled up to above the foot / hoof. The water should be as warm as possible. The warmer, the better the transfer of chlorine dioxide through the skin into the leg. However, you have to take into account, especially with dogs, that these cool off with the paws. Conversely, warm water can also increase the temperature. Therefore one should pay attention to a comfortable water temperature for the animal. Both the foot / hoof and part of the leg above should be in the water. The area above the hoof should be about half the height of the hoof itself.
Pour at least 20 ml CDH3000 into the warm water (1 liter) and add 5 ml MKB Vital and then 5 ml DMSO100. Instead of DMSO and MKB, I can also use DMKB. Here I use a third of the amount that I use on CDH3000. In this example that would be approx. 7 ml. More is not wrong either. If the total amount has to be larger, I measure more accordingly. Now put your leg in there.
The foot bath should now work for at least 2 to 5 minutes.
In the event that the animal, despite being persuaded, does not show patience and wants to leave the place, it should be placed beforehand in such a way that it cannot easily leave the vessel. A corner in the room is very suitable for this. It is important that the water is not so warm that the animal would like to leave for this reason. Overheating must of course be avoided.
It is optimal to do such a foot bath 2-3 times a day.
The problem usually improves after the first footbath.
If this is not enough, a second foot bath may be necessary. Small problems are often resolved after the third foot bath at the latest. In more severe cases, such as a muck (horse), carry out about 7 days, 3 times a day. If this frequency is not possible during the day, I extend the number of days on which I do the foot bath.
Of course, it makes sense to take CDH internally with DMSO and MKB Vital (or DMKB). Such a foot bath replaces, as a rule, an internal gift.
Treating malaise in horses with CDL / CDH:
Mauke is a bacterial skin inflammation in the fetlock. Often this occurs in winter and when the hoof becomes frequently damp. But also with poor hygiene in the barn. Therefore, this can also be a trigger. If the hair on the legs is longer, the malaise occurs more frequently.
Treatment options for Mauke with CDH (CDL):
- Foot bath:
Use a vessel into which the hoof / leg goes as precisely as possible. Fill the bucket with lukewarm water so that the water is filled up to above the hoof. Both the hoof and part of the leg above should be in the water. The area above the hoof should be about half the height of the hoof itself. Pour in at least 20 ml CDH3000 and add 10 ml MKB Vital. Then add 20 ml of DMSO 100.
Let the foot bath work for at least 2-5 minutes. It is optimal to do the foot bath 2-3 times a day. I would do this for about 7 days. If necessary, extend the measure.
- In addition, an inner gift
For animals, such as horses, the general formula is:
1 ml CDH per 25 kg body weight or 1 drop of activated chlorine dioxide (MMS) per 25 kg body weight with 20 ml water.
Horses like to eat the mixture in wheat bran. Otherwise I would simply put it into the mouth (mouth tip) with a syringe (without a cannula, of course).
An example: Body weight 550 kg = 22 drops
The calculation method: (550: 25 = 22 ml CDH3000 or 22 ml drops of activated chlorine dioxide mixed with at least 20 ml water). Of course, more water for dilution is even better. I also activate MMS or better chlorine dioxide here 1: 0.5 (sodium chlorite to acid. In this example it would be 22 drops of sodium chlorite 25% and 11 drops of hydrochloric acid 4%.
On the second day you can add DMSO100 to reinforce and deepen your CDH or MMS. I use half the number of milliliters of CDH for this. In the case with the 22 ml CDH3000, it would be 11 ml DMSO. All this mixed in Vom MKB Vital, I take half the amount of DMSO, here 5.5 ml. From DMKB it would be approx. 7 ml. All of this diluted with min. 30 ml of water. Again, more dilution is always better.
It is always important to watch the animal. If they develop diarrhea, I stop or reduce the use until it’s over and then continue with the lower dose that was previously tolerated. If the animal already has diarrhea it is important to keep a close eye on the animal’s wellbeing / behavior. If the animal feels significantly worse after the administration, the dose may have been set too high. Therefore, you should always start with a lower dose than the target dose (see formula) and then increase.
- Spray variant:
This variant can always be carried out quickly in between without great effort. For this I put CDH3000 in a suitable sprayer bottle, mix it with the same amount of water and spray the leg / hoof with it 2-3 times a day. You can also spread the spray over the fur by hand and massage in a little. Or work without a sprayer. In severe cases, I would also thinly spray DMSO100 after spraying with CDH. The surface treated in this way will warm up briefly. That is normal.
Otherwise I would pay attention to dry hooves and not leave the animal in the water, not even on very wet grass. I would also check the hygiene in the barn.
