MYCOTIC (FUNGAL/MOLD) INFECTIONS IN ANIMALS
The growth of fungal or mold mycelia in the tissues of animals can be very severe, or treated superficially depending on location of infections: externally on the skin, ear pinnae, and between the toes of mammals, or beak of bird, or hooves of horses, are easier to treat than those infections involving internal organs such as inside the lung tissue.
There are some fungi/molds like the Aspergillis flavus, other Aspergillis species and Pencillium , that can produce toxic substances like Aflatoxin. These fungi grow on cereal products, peanuts and soybean that are exposed to warm moist conditions, then dried, ground up and processed into livestock meal, packaged dog and cat kibbled products, and peanut, rice, oats, wheat, and soybean products for human consumption. Aflatoxin is both a potent toxin as well as a carcinogen. It can produce mild diarrhea (small doses) to Hemorrhagic Gastroenteritis, liver and kidney pathology in chronic moderate doses to death in livestock, poultry, horses and people in large doses.
What is fungus or mold? It is a living entity classified as any one of a class of the vegetable kingdom of the lower order of development- think of mushrooms as well as mold.
It is a parasite. Remember that! It only can take hold on a weakened host- think of the mushrooms growing on decaying wood. So too in the animal body: it only can find a happy home where the animal (and human) body’s protective electromagnetic energy field is weak or imbalanced. Causes of weakness are many:
- Trauma to the head with the EMF Chi flow knocked out of positive alignment that further weakens every cell of every organ over time.
- Overuse of antibiotics that kill off protective bacteria in the intestinal tract necessary for protein digestion and nourishment to the body. Bacteria are always at war with fungi.
- Other weaknesses are improper diet, lack of stomach hydrochloric acid and pepsin and pancreatic digestive enzymes to digest and metabolize the food eaten.
- Toxin overload from vaccinosis, heavy metals, food, water and air chemical pollutants.
- Exposure over time to noxious environmental radiations: geopathics and household noxious emf’s of electrical wiring and plumbing in the walls. Please read my article on Why Do Animals Get Sick in this website.
So how do we treat these fungal/mold infections? BY REMOVING THE CAUSE(ES) OF WEAKENESS. Also I can be contacted to do specific Detox/Support/Prevention Treatment Programs through my consultation services. I have nosodes of Aflatoxin, and almost all species of fungi and molds.
DIET CHANGE: FOR HORSES ELIMINATE ALL CEREALS FED
FOR DOGS AND CATS FOLLOW THE BELOW DIET RATIO:
BY GLORIA DODD DVM
If your animal has a fungal infection, it is mandatory that you starve this parasite . Fungi live on carbohydrate cereals and sugars. So that means that your animal must not be fed any corn, wheat, rice, rye, barley or oats. If you feed a kibbled diet –STOP IMMEDIATELY as kibble is very high ratio cereal content. Please do not feed any commercial diet, but make your own home made for your pet. The diet best fed for a fungal infected animal is 80% protein (meat, fish, eggs, and dairy), and 20% chopped lightly steamed veggies: yams, carrots, squash, chard, green and yellow bell peppers, onions, and garlic. Please try to find organic when possible but always detox on my blue green detox papers first before feeding. This diet is mandatory in all fungi infected animals espec. If your pet has been diagnosed with the most commonly found fungus, Candida Albicans.
RATIO OF DIET TO FEED: FOR A 10 LB ANIMAL:
6 OZ. PROTEIN (LEAN MEAT, FISH, DAIRY, AND EGGS)
4 OZ. CHOPPED STEAMED VEGGIES: CHARD, CARROTS, YAMS, SQUASH, CELERY, ONIONS AND BROCCOLI
ADD EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL ONCE DAILY: ½ TEASP FOR CATS AND MINIATURE DOGS, TO 1 TEASPOON FOR MEDIUM SIZED DOGS, TO 1 TABLESPOON FOR GIANT BREEDS OF DOGS.

PACIFIC YEW TREE (TAXUS BREVIFOLIA)
By Gloria Dodd DVM
The Yew tree story: A 5300 year old mummified remains of the “Ice Man” found recently in the Alps revealed that he carried yew wood handled copper axe, along with a 6 foot yew bow and arrows. Because the red wood of the Yew is impervious to parasites and rot, it has been used by many early cultures for making domestic tools, flooring, buckets, tables, beds, wheels, etc. A spear point found in England is thought to be more than 50,000 years old, while another spear point of a similar age was found in Germany, wedged in the sternum of a fossilized wooly mammoth.
But there has also been medicinal uses of the bark, and needles of this very ancient, very slow growing bush. In early Germany, Yew was mixed with butter and used to treat Tuberculosis. The tea was made to treat eplipesy, In some parts of India the salve made from crushed bark and needles added to butter to treat skin cancer.
The early Pacific Coast Indians revered the Yew, both for spiritual and medicinal properties. Native Americans did not love the poor Yew to death as did early American researchers in the 1950’s, who chopped down thousands of these specimens to analyze their medicinal properties. Rather, the native Indians collect only the renewable branches and needles for making canoe paddles, bows, digging sticks and medicines. Fortunately due to the growing Environmental Movement in this country, only the last 6-8 inches of the growth of the Yew is allowed to be collected. These are renewable growth.
Yew tree populations are found primarily in Europe, Egypt, Greece, India, China, Japan, Canada and the United states. There are many, many species of Yew but only the Montana and Pacific Yew are non toxic.
There are numerous multiple compounds of the Yew being isolated today in their natural molecular structure which is compatible with our physiology. This is why some researchers feel that natural substances do not create the often dramatic and devastating side effects seen with many plant-derived pharmaceutical drugs. Because of the number and complexity of these naturally occurring compounds (taxanes), It has been found impossible for the drug company researchers to duplicate them for drug formulation and synthesis. (Thank the Lord for that!).
Some of the healing qualities of Taxus brevifolia
(Pacific Yew): the multitude of factors found in this plant exhibit significant anti-cancer, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory activities.
There are numerous research studies and testimonials of its curative powers.
People are reporting they use the tea, tincture and salve made from the Pacific Yew, not just for their cancer concerns or prevention, but for a myriad of common illnesses too: including colds, flu, aches, pains, fungal and viral infections, bursitis, sciatica and more. No wonder the Native Americans call it the “Chief of the Forest”.
Use In Animal medicine: Today, it is being used in horses with viral infections, cancer, inflammation and lung problems. Treatment is by mixing 1-3 cups of loose dry tea in their daily grain rations.
In dogs, with similar problems, are treated by adding Yew tincture to their food or water----5 drops tincture for every 10 lbs. of body wt, once daily. One must not use the Yew treatment in pregnancy as it has stimulation menstrual flow properties.
I have no quarrel with the Yew properties made into a healing salve for lesions, psoriasis, fungal infections and even Herpes infections in animals.
My concerns deal with using it orally, such as a tincture, or dry tea. The taste is terribly bitter. I have circumvented this problem by making the Yew’s medicinal properties into a homeopathic formulation. It is well tolerated by animals and my own research show excellent normalizing energy value readings in my patients with cancer,(dog and cat), Candida fungus in dog, cats, horses and other organ pathologies such as Congestive Heart and Lung pathology, Herpes Viral infection causing Rodent Ulcers in cats. My own Candida Fungus and Squamous Cell cancer energy values normalize with the Pacific Yew Homeopathic remedy and I am now including this in my totally Holistic therapy and in my In Depth Consultation Treatments of my animal patients.
