A little story about Pleo Muc Eye Drops for Dogs - my Jack Russell Terrier's eye was closed tight last week - I don't know if she scratched it or what the problem was. Anyway, I did the regular eye wash with boric acid a few times and also put in boric acid ointment but with no improvement. I suddenly thought to put in a drop of the Pleo Muc Eye Drops for Dogs and the improvement was almost instantaneous to halfway open. One more drop a few hours later and she was fully recovered. Good stuff!

Dear Dr. Z,

I have two Golden Retrievers, eleven and four years old. I recently noticed both of them had discharge from their eyes. I started using the Pleo Muc Eye Drops for Dogs for both of them; one drop each eye daily. There is such an improvement! Plus, my 11 year old dog craves the eye drops. When I call them over for the one drop each eye, he has to be first in line.

Dr. Z.'s comments:

Pleo Muc Eye Drops/Mucokehl Eye Drops is one of our most popular items, both in my clinical practice and in the online store. Many of our clients a very happy with the relief and the improvement they experience with respect to their own eye function.

Many of you have reported wonderful results with your pets, especially with your dogs and also with some cats. We decided to add Pleo Muc Eye Drops to the online pet store for both cats and dogs. Please be aware that the Pleo Muc Eye Drops for Dogs and the Pleo Muc Eye Drops for Cats are identical to the Pleo Muc Eye Drops for Humans.

The Story of Heidi Z - our Golden Retriever not "so much" puppy any longer

Heidi Z

Heidi Z



We have 2 two Golden Retrievers.

Heidi Z is the younger one. Heidi is very good friends with Busta, our "older" Golden Retriever.

This happened when Heidi was a 5 month old puppy.

As you may know - puppies chew, they chew incessantly.

Well.... Heidi Z chewed, she chewed incessantly, on something

I don't know about your puppy experience - she also loved to chew and swallow dog poop, cat poop, anything that smells bad and tastes, in our yard...???

Well, one day, Heidi Z all of a sudden did not look so good. My wife Victoria suggested that maybe Heidi Z had chewed and swallowed some of the mushrooms that tend to grow readily in our yard. But then, how would we know???

That night, Heidi Z started to have terribly smelling gas and awful diarrhea. She started howling and complaining all through the night. Every two hours, or even more frequently, we got up to let her out so she could relieve herself in the garden.

We hoped this would all clear up and she'd be better the next day. But - the same happened the next day and the next night - only worse.

Finally we were contemplating maybe taking her to the vet.

"What is a typical vet going to do?" - I asked myself.

After some thinking and some discussion, my wife Victoria and I decided to do some investigating ourselves. Victoria, serving as a "surrogate" tester, and I - together we embarked on on an AK (Applied Kinesiology) journey to to determine what was ailing Heidi Z and what might be useful for her to return to "normal".

We found - no surprise here - her digestive system and colon to very stressed. We also found her liver and her kidney meridians highly stressed.

Here are the supplements/homeopathic remedies that "tested strong" on Heidi Z:

and interestingly enough Food Poison Detox - which I have have only really considered for human use.

But WHY NOT give it a try?

Guess what happened? Within 24 hours her stools returned to near normal. She sleeps again through the night. Victoria and I get our sleep. She has been her usual self since. She plays, eats, drinks and has normal bowel movements.

We still give her daily dosages of all four items mentioned above.

Homeopathy - What is it?

Homeopathy is a system of medicine whose fundamental principle is the law of similars—that like is cured by like. It was first given practical application by Samuel Hahnemann of Leipzig, Germany, in the early 19th century and was designated homeopathy to distinguish it from the established school of medicine which he called allopathy. The American Institute of Homeopathy was founded in 1844, and the practice of homeopathy was popularized in the United States by the physician and senator Royal S. Copeland (1868–1938).

Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, 10th Ed., 1993: Homeopathy is "a system of medical practice that treats a disease especially by the administration of minute doses of a remedy that would in healthy persons produce symptoms similar to those of the disease".

Miranda Castro R.S. Hom., author of The Complete Homeopathic Handbook, 1990: "The Similum or Law of Similars: This basic law of homeopathy is similia similibus currentur: 'let likes be cured with like'. Based on this premise, the first homeopathic principle states that any substance that can make you ill can also cure you - anything that is capable of producing symptoms of disease in a healthy person can cure those symptoms in a sick person. By 'symptom' the homeopath means those changes that are felt by the patient (subjective) or observed (objective), which may be associated with a particular disease, or state of dis-ease, and which are the outward expression of that state".

Stephen Cummings, M.D. and Dana Ullman, M.P.H., authors of Everybody's Guide to Homeopathic Medicines, 1991: "Homeopathy is a 200-year-old medical system you can use at home to help treat family members with a wide spectrum of acute health problems. It offers a way to gently stimulate your inner healing resources through recognizing and reinforcing the adaptive reaction's of the body's natural defenses. By choosing the correct, individually suited homeopathic medicine from the plant, mineral, animal, or chemical kingdom, you can successfully stimulate the body's own defenses...you can complement your family's efforts toward good health with these safe, natural medicines that provide an effective, inexpensive alternative to conventional medicine"

There is a lot of controversy about if and how homeopathic remedies work. You must make up your own mind.

Please review this very interesting article:

I do love Homeopathy - First - Do No Harm!!

As you may know - I have been using Sanum/PleoSanum homeopathic remedies for more than 20 years in my clinical practice - with astounding results.

The most important precept - at least from my perspective - of being a health care provider is the Hippocratic Oath:

  • First Do No Harm

When you look at contemporary Western Medicine - this oath appears to be all but forgotten.

Just look at the insane drug company advertising on TV -

  • on the one hand the particular pharmaceutical drug promoted supposedly can solve certain health related symptoms such as depression, heartburn, high blood sugar, high blood pressure, high cholesterol problems, erectile dysfunction, etc....-
  • only you may experience side effects - your liver may fail, you may experience sometimes fatal muscle problems, you may experience increased tendencies to depression and/or suicidal thinking, you may end up with congestive heart failure, you may.... yes, you may actually die...

The nice thing about the homeopathic approach - no side effects. The worst thing that can typically happen - NOTHING.
