    We have a 3wk old boxer puppie that’s been doing pretty well,but yesterday we tried transitioning from goat’s milk to more solid food(oatmeal+milk). She started fine but then we noticed she kind of started getting it in her nose because she was kind of blowing her nose out alot. So then we went back the bottle and now today she seemed kind of congested whenever we fed her the milk.
    I don’t know what it was but whenever I go on things like boxer forums they usually tell you to run to the vet for every little thing. In my experience I’ve noticed these people don’t usually acknowledge alternatives because they don’t seem to know how to address most health issues. But I do..in people.
    One of the things they said was to make sure there was no milk in the lungs because that can lead to fatal pneumonia,for which I asked what will the vet do and basically they just said antibiotics.
    My question is,since I can’t keep affording the vet,is there anything I could do at home equivalent to the antibiotics for a puppy? Like I said I handle most medical things at home for humans.

    Firstly, thanks for the spam report.

    Second, you can try various immune boosters and colostrum-like products (I use IgG 2000 from Xymogen) tho of course they are not the same as antibiotics. Best thi ng is to supervise closely those young pups while transitioning the diet.

I'm sending my prayers and best wishes to everyone throughout the world that has been affected by this historic pandemic. My hope is for a better balance of the world and greater empowerment for all as soon as possible. Here are 4 actions that can be used today to improve immune resistance to any virus or bacteria:

1. Go on a "sniff walk” with your pet and breathe fresh air deeply for at least 30 minutes/day.

2. Eat darkly colored fresh vegetables and fruit such as wild blueberries and kale.

3. Do at least 50 HA! breaths just say ha loudly) daily. These forceful expulsions of air help maintain good lung function and can help you detect respiratory problems early. Laughter, coughing and Kapalabhati breathing (from yoga) are three other easy ways to do this.

4. Experience positive emotions, like the sense of awe, when we witness the renewal of nature. Stay safe, Vital and healthy”
