This formula can be used effectively providing a natural solution from - Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever (Rickettsia rickettsii), Brown Dog tick fever (ehrlichiosis), once it has been used on your pet it will also assist as future protection.
from the certain ticks (i.e. Brown Dog Ticks fever bites)
Ehrlichiosis, also known as Canine Rickettsiosis, Canine Hemorrhagic Fever, Canine Typhus, Tracker dog disease, and tropical canine pancytopenia is a tick-borne disease of dogs usually caused by the organism Ehrlichia Canis. * if showing other acute symptoms refer to (AN075) HAMPL Tick formulas - which will help you know what to do immediately.
Grasp the tick very close to your pet's skin with a tick removal tool or a pair of tweezers. Carefully pull the tick's body away from the skin. Or buy a "Tick Stick" tool and have it on hand if ever needed.
Once it's off, flush it down the toilet. Once it's off, flush it down the toilet. Then disinfect your dog or cat's skin with Vitamin C powder (made into a paste or liquid by adding some water).
* If suspect a toxic tick, then vitamin c can remove toxins, discomfort, also give a teaspoon of vitamin c in some water ( about 1/4 cup or less) and oral syringe small sips till liquid is taken. (not all ticks have are toxic or have side effects)
Signs and Symptoms of Ehrlichiosis
The symptoms and severity of illness seen with Ehrlichiosis depend on the species of Ehrlichia involved and the immune response of the dog. Generally, Erlichia canis appears to produce the most severe illness, and infections tend to progress through various stages. The acute phase occurs within the first few weeks of being infected and is rarely fatal. Recovery can occur, or the dog can enter a "subclinical phase," which can last for years, where there are no symptoms. Some dogs eventually progress to the chronic phase, where very severe illness can develop. However, in practice, it is difficult to distinguish these phases.
Signs and symptoms of ehrlichiosis may include:
- Loss of appetite.
- Weight loss.
- Abnormal bleeding (e.g., nosebleeds, bleeding under the skin -- looks like little spots or patches of bruising).
- Enlarged lymph nodes.
- Enlarged spleen.
- Pain and stiffness (due to arthritis and muscle pain).
- Discharge from the eyes and/or nose.
- Vomiting and diarrhea.
- Inflammation of the eye.
- Neurological symptoms (e.g., incoordination, depression, paralysis, etc.).
Signs of other organ involvement can appear in the chronic form, especially kidney disease.
Note: Anaplasma platys causes recurrent low platelet counts but tends to produce only mild symptoms, if any.
Diagnosis of Ehrlichiosis
It can be difficult to confirm a diagnosis of Ehrlichiosis. Blood tests typically show a decreased number of platelets ("thrombocytopenia") and sometimes decreased numbers of red blood cells (anemia) and/or white blood cells.
(CODE AN240) "Prophylactics are homeopathic" for Brown Dog Tick Fever - prevention.
The Homeopathic formulas can be used as a "prophylactic" (prevention) or treatment for your Pets. NATURAL PREVENTION USING HOMEOPATHIC ORAL NOSODES
When is its high season for the toxic type of ticks in Australia?
Larvae appear late Feb to April / May (not causing toxic damages)
Nymphs March to September / October (occasional mild toxins, opportunity to gain resistance in tick-infested areas).
The adult population emerges in August to February, peaking around December (Toxic season so search for ticks on your pets daily!)
Signs of Tick Toxicity:
Signs most commonly seen include - Vomiting and/or gagging or refusing food, a slight wobbliness of the hindquarters which worsens to paralysis and inability to stand, a change in the sound of bark or miaow, vomiting and / or gagging or refusing food, difficulty breathing (slow and laboured, often with a grunting noise on expiration).
* If your pet is showing ANY of these signs and you don't have a natural treatment for tick bite, it is IMPORTANT that your pet is treated appropriately AS SOON AS POSSIBLE as untreated animals may die. e.g. vitamin C oral dosing, Bach Flowers Rescue Remedy, see below information.
Contact our clinic to express post-treatment to you. If needing immediate support please seek a good vet who has dealt with tick bites. Sometimes you may find a tick or ticks on your pet and it is not showing any clinical signs. In such cases, you should remove all the ticks, keep your pet quiet and closely watch him/her for the next 24-36 hours as signs may still develop despite the removal of the ticks. If this happens, treatment is necessary.The toxin is not secreted in detectable amounts until 3 days of attachment.
Clinical signs of the animal being sick are often seen at day 3-4 with peak toxicity on days 5-6.
These 3 days gives us a chance to find and to remove ticks before they inject large amounts of toxin. Not every animal will become paralyzed or get really sick. Weight, age, and immune competence count smaller and younger animals such as puppies, kittens, foals, calves, lambs, and kids are more affected. Tick infested areas may continuously expose dogs so they develop immune resistance however it only lasts for a couple of months and not until the next season. However, infestation by adults can occur at any time of the year when conditions are suitable, even in mid-winter.
Many essential oils patted into fur can help deter - Flea, Tick, Mosquito Repellent.
Diatomaceous Earth a natural anti-bug powder can be put on pet and around the house, back yard etc.Diatomaceous Earth (often referred to as "DE") is an off white talc-like powder that is the fossilized remains of marine phytoplankton. When sprinkled on a bug that has an exoskeleton (such as bed bugs, ants or fleas) it compromises their waxy coating so that their innards turn into teeny tiny bug jerky. But it doesn't hurt mammals. We can eat it. We do eat it! It's in lots of grain based foods because lots of grains are stored with diatomaceous earth to keep the bugs from eating the grain! E.g. Put under duck pen, in the yard for scorpions and spiders and various plants to keep off worms, aphids and all the millions of Florida bugs. It helps to keep fleas and ticks off your pets. Many uses for this!
An All Natural Homemade Pest Deterrent for Dogs
You can actually make an all-natural pest deterrent for your dog very easily at home. It will help him avoid a good percentage of the pests he encounters, though not all of them. The recipe: Mix 8 ounces of pure water with 4 ounces of organic, unfiltered apple cider vinegar and 10 drops of neem herb oil. Neem oil is not an essential oil. It's an expelled or pressed oil, and it's safe for cats. Neem oil is effective because fleas and ticks hate it. It's also great for animals who are very sensitive to smells. Catnip oil can also be used as a pest deterrent since it has been proven to be as effective as diethyltoluamide (DEET), the mosquito and tick spray humans use that has a number of toxic side effects.
If you want to add some extra punch to your dog's pest recipe, go with five drops of lemon, lemongrass, eucalyptus or geranium oil. Dr Becker recommends using geranium oil being very effective. If you have a dog who comes in contact with ticks, adding the extra punch of one of the essential oils that were listed can be very beneficial. You can store your homemade pest deterrent in the fridge. Before my dogs head out in the morning, give them a mist with it, being careful to avoid their eyes. The active ingredients, especially the oils in the recipe, dissipate in about four hours, so you may need to reapply it several times throughout the day.
An All Natural Homemade Pest Deterrent for Cats
Dr Becker's recipe for cats is very similar to the one for dogs.
The recipe: Mix 8 ounces of pure water with 4 ounces of organic, unfiltered apple cider vinegar, plus 10 drops of neem oil and 10 drops of catnip oil. Cats and essential oils can be tricky, so we want to leave essential oils out of the kitty recipe.
Neither neem nor catnip oil is truly essential oils — they're distillates, so we're safe using those. Catnip oil works to deter mosquitoes as well. Cats aren't prone to heartworm, which is a mosquito-borne disease, but dogs are. So those are two easy, all-natural recipes you can use to deter pests and as a bonus, they also make your dog or cat smell wonderful! You can use them during flea season, tick season and all summer long, and feel good that you're not using pesticides on your pet.

Here are just some of the reviews of loss of pets to this poison product.
Please for your pet's well-being, AVOID any type of chemical treatments - highly toxic insecticide poison bomb or sprays.
~ Tick and Flea Chemical-Free Alternative.
1. Using Diatomaceous Earth (DE) dry talc. An excellent choice for short term problem remediation and, longer term, keeping bugs at bay with regular reapplications. Dust pets bedding and areas where the pet sleeps, including carpets, loungers, and rugs. Topically, use sparingly and lightly working the product into the hair using a brush or comb. Paying attention strict attention to the areas that the animal cannot scratch such as the scalp. * Avoid face and nose, eyes and ear area.
2. Homeopathic HAMPL Tick Paralysis Oral Nosode 15ml or 30ml drops. Which you can stir in a dose to farm animal trough once a week. Stir in a dose every time you change your dog's water. Animals that do not drink water very often, place some drops in their food or on the body once a month.
3. Topical Tick Repellant: Insecticide poisons used for parasites in pet come in pet collars, cream, sprays, drops or drugs etc.
However, there is a safer non-toxic alternative way, using different types of herbs and aromatherapy oils (as anti-parasite repellents) in water and a spray bottle to spray on your pet each day when going outside for walks etc.
Tick saliva is "Neuro and Cardiotoxic" what means it has a deleterious effect on the heart and nervous system causing ascending paralyzes.
There is a concentration of saliva and presumably toxin in the granulomatous reaction around the tick mouth parts. It is thought by some experimenters that the residual toxin located in this granuloma is at least partially responsible for the increasing paralysis which occurs after the tick is removed.
USA - by comparison, the North American paralysis tick Dermacentor andersoni (found in the Rocky Mtns) does not produce a granuloma at the site of attachment, and in this case, the paralysis rapidly regresses after the tick is removed.
The Ixodes Holocyclus (paralysis tick) is found alone the coast line of Qld, NSW, and Victoria, and recently in northern Western Australia on cattle.
Are commercial flea and tick treatment are safe?
All spot-on treatments, sprays, and collars are hard pesticides and pose some degree of health risk to animals. Humans who closely interact with treated dogs/cats (especially children) can be affected by the toxins. Just remember on the packaging to wear gloves and wash off any contamination and avoid contact with eyes and skin Potential Side effects from tick preventatives Quoting from Kathleen Dudley, Belvoir Publications, Inc 2002 Summary of laboratory studies: (rats, mice, dogs).
Given enough time, most pesticides eventually cause enough injuries that they are identified as hazards and are removed from the market.

NOTE: some of the known "Heavy Metal Toxins" in Vaccinations (injections).
Thimerosal (mercury) - an organic compound containing the heavy metal mercury, which has been widely used as a preservative in vaccines.
Mercury is a powerful neurotoxin. It is one of the most potent poisons known to man and has been shown to impair the function of many internal systems, chief among them being the brain, the central nervous system, the endocrine system, and the kidneys, as well as other organs.
Aluminum - another heavy metal used in vaccines as an adjuvant. Adjuvants are often added to vaccines containing killed viruses in order to enhance or boost the vaccine"s effectiveness. Aluminum is a known neurotoxin.
Formaldehyde - classified by the EPA as a probable carcinogen, is used as a tissue fixative in some vaccines. Metals, such as aluminum and mercury, affect the brain and the nerves causing seizures, dementia, hyperactivity in the young pets and brain dysfunction (dementia) in the aged. All organs are susceptible, especially the gastrointestinal tract, kidneys, liver and the bone marrow. Toxicity may not be apparent for many years until debilitating nerve disorders become apparent, at which stage, it may be too late.

Medicinal Herbal Actions
Lemon Balm herb, kills cofactors of other illness caused viruses including the bacteria Streptococcus, E.Coli, Bartonella, Babesia, Mycoplasma Pneumoniae, and Chlamydophila Pneumoniae, plus Fungas Candida. This reduces the strain on the Immune System.
Sweet Annie (artemisia annus) - lung infection - pneumocystis pneumonia (PCP) that is caused by a fungus.This herb is also often used for Malaria and Babesia lyme infections. Cryptolepsis - bacterial, systemic infection (whole body)* systemic means affecting the whole body, or at least multiple organ systems. It is in contrast with topical or local)
Echinacea Auguarifolia - a natural antibiotic, as well as antiviral, antifungal and disinfectant. Has the ability to boost the strength of t-lymphocytes. T-cells are vital to the immune system as they help the body to increase the number of anti-bodies that you have circulating. They work to fight off pathogenic invaders and virus's, as well as increasing the ability of the white blood cells to deal with any virus's or other micro-organisms that you may encounter. Very effective to strengthen immune system health and aid the immune system to fight the effects of colds and flu. This includes helping to treat sore throats, hay fever, coughs and upper respiratory infections such as bronchitis and sinusitis.
Goldenseal - Goldenseal has been shown in the research to be both antibiotic and antiviral. It is possible that berberine (a major component of goldenseal) also kills a wide range of other types of germs in test tubes, such as those that cause candida (yeast) infections and parasites such as tapeworms and Giardia. Berberine may also activate white blood cells, making them better at fighting infection and strengthening the immune system.
Pau d Arco - a antifungal known to treat Candida albicans, Candida tropicalis, and Cryptococcus neoformans, that was similar to Amphotericin B. The presumed anti fungal activity of lapachol is believed to be due to its interaction with the cellular membrane.
Andrographis - is also used for a wide assortment of other conditions. It is used for digestive complaints including diarrhea, constipation, intestinal gas, colic, and stomach pain; for liver conditions including an enlarged liver, jaundice, and liver damage due to medications; for infections including leprosy, pneumonia, tuberculosis, gonorrhea, syphilis, malaria, cholera, leptospirosis, rabies, sinusitis, and HIV/AIDS; and for skin conditions including wounds, ulcers and itchiness.
Baptisia (blue Flag - herb has numerous medicinal properties. It is not only helpful in aiding the purifying of the blood through the liver, and to increase bile production. but it also helps our spleen and the glands in our lymphatic system. It has high detoxifying properties and is mainly used to remove the toxic substances in the body.
Usnea Barb - Usnea medicinal use dates back to ancient China, when it was used to treat an infection. It is still used for that purpose today. In addition, unlike many antibiotics, usnea does not kill off friendly intestinal flora. Its main function is for the treatment of bacterial infections, bronchitis, candida, colds, cough, diarrhea, flu, giargia, gonorrhea, infection, lupus, pleurisy, pneumonia, sinus infection, staph infection, strep throat, tuberculosis, and urethritis. So a wonderful antibiotic, anti-fungal, anti-parasitic, immuno-stimulating, immuno-regulator, demulcent, anti-tumor, expectorant, a muscle relaxant.
Chinese Skullcap (Scutellaria Baicalensis) - has been used for anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, immunoprotective, anti-cancer, anti-microbial, anti-viral, and circulatory conditions. Chinese skullcap may even have anti-cancer properties and could be especially helpful for bladder and liver cancer. This medicinal herb could prove useful as an herbal treatment for hepatitis. It also has antihistamine properties that make it a useful herb for treating asthma and allergies such as hay fever. In traditional Chinese medicine baical skullcap is used to treat dysentery, the common cold, irritability, diarrhea, infections accompanied by fever, urinary tract infections, gout, jaundice, nosebleed, vaginal bleeding, abdominal pain and redness of the eyes and face. Chinese skullcap is a potent synergist (increases benefit of other supplements); a property that is very important when choosing a supplement regimen. In other words, it enhances the value of other herbs, especially those with antimicrobial value. It is, by itself, strongly antiviral (especially against herpes viruses). It also offers antibacterial and antifungal properties. It is one of the primary supplements for use against mycoplasma. Chinese skullcap is also known for sedative properties. It contains melatonin, helpful for inducing sleep. Strongly protective of nerve tissue. Attenuates (calms) overactive immune function. It has been used for anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, immunoprotective, anti-cancer, anti-microbial, anti-viral, and circulatory conditions. For "vesicular stomatitis" virus (mouth ulcers) in cats with Feline Calicivirus.
General Dosing and Instructions Guide
For all species, size, and ages.
(a) “HOMEOPATHICS”are sold in either a clear liquid or tiny white pills or granules – both have no odour or taste) Easy “application dosing” for all species:
- Homeopathic DROPS (clear liquid) DRIP or APPLY 3 to 4 drops, pat into fur/skin with bottom of bottle. i.e. back of shoulder blades (not orally) which is regarded as one dose for all size species and ages. Note: Liquid homeopathics are more suited for feline, toy dog, fish, birds and other small species
- Homeopathic PILLS (white pills) crush a pill (or whole) and add to gum/pouch of mouth to dissolve in saliva. Does not need to swallow it.
- Homeopathic GRANULES (white grain) and a small light sprinkle or a pinch to meals, or stir into water trough or bowl.
Casual repeat dosing can add to water bowl or feed dish or water trough for wildlife or farm animals.
Refer to Bottle Label for suggested frequencies repeat dosing needed per day.
NOTE: the rule is one must “repeat a dose” more frequently with less time in between each application dose, which is more important than the amount given each time. Repeat application will provide faster action.
(b) “HERBAL MEDICINES ” (brown liquid – strong odour & tasting) ”Application dosing” for all species and sizes: Canine, equine, cow, sheep, goat : add herbal drops (as recommended on bottle label) to some (unsweetened apple sauce or apple juice) for canines and oral syringe side of mouth. Can add other vitamins (crushed) Alkaline green powders etc. to mix.
Refer to Bottle Label for amount of drops per species size. e.g 60 drops = 1 teaspoon
What I do for example: If I was needing to give herb treatments and/or vitamin supplements to feline or toy dog or other small animals – I add this herbal formula to a small bowl add some boiled water (about a teaspoon) to it so to dissolve the alcohol in it, let cool, then add what vitamins If needed (powder or crushed tab – a pinch) mixed in another 50ml of water, and oral syringe once a day or twice a day …smear on a little “vegemite paste” (if cannot get Vegemite in your country, try fresh pate or slippery elm powder added can help mask the taste) around and on tip of oral syringe, as felines seem to real like the taste of this paste, but not too much as it is quite a strong taste)
(c)“NUTRITIONAL Mix ” Giving vitamins and supplements (tablets or powders) Note: always crush tablet before adding to food or liquid mix. Felines or small animals: make up 1 cup of mixture, adding approx. a pinch of some type of Green powder (alkaline powder) or Chlorella powder (cleansing of toxins) or 1/4 Teaspoons of Slippery elm powder (to mask the taste) with 1 teaspoon of herbs if you are having to also give herbal medicines (i.e. brown liquid) Med to large animals: add twice to three times the amount.
DOSING: Feline or small animal: using an oral syringe draw up 1ml and gently small sips. Or add a teaspoon to meals if they don’t mind eating it with meals (mix well into food) Do not put in Fridge. Room temp is best as too cold is dislike by felines.
DOSING: Canine, equine, cow, sheep, goat: try mixing well into food and hand piece before feeding main meals. Or dose same as suggested for felines, but add three times as much herbal medicines and vitamins to 1/2 cup of water or (unsweetened) apple sauce or apple juice.
What I do for example: If i was needing to give herb treatments and/or vitamin supplements to feline or toy dog or other small animals – I add this herbal formula to 1/2 cup of boiled hot water to it so to dissolve the alcohol in it, let cool, then add what vitamins If needed (powder or crushed tab – a pinch) mixed in another 50ml of water, and oral syringe once a day or twice a day …. smear on a little “vegemite paste” (if cannot get Vegemite in your country, try fresh pate or slippery elm powder added can help mask the taste) around and on tip of oral syringe, as felines seem to real like the taste of this paste, but not too much as it is quite a strong taste)
Slippery Elm Powder If needing to add or use Slippery Elm powder
FOR CONDITIONS like …. diarrhea, stomach ulcers, or sore inflamed mouth or mouth ulcers, constipation, or IBS (i.e. colitis), plus it can also been given as a liquid meal given orally via syringe as it is highly nutritional (oral liquid feeding) for convalescing during illness when not eating solids.
CONVALESCING ..can been given as a liquid meal given orally via syringe as it is highly nutritional (oral liquid feeding) for convalescing during illness when not eating solids or not eating very well. ~ Add a small amount of powder to the mix to enough to make a runny liquid mix, if you put too much of the powder it will become thick and gluggy, if this happens you will need to add more liquid to it. Can add crushed vitamins and herbal medicines to this as well. OPTIONS: Oral dose in syringe or add to meals three times a day or more to maintain normal health again, then can stop or reduce frequencies.
