Transfer Factor is an immune booster nutritional approach in preventive and natural medicine for people and animals according to doctors and veterinariansSteven Slagle, DVM  - A cat with Leukemia, an oral tumor, and posterior paralysis due to a spinal tumor was very ill and emaciated.  One month after starting her on Transfer Factor Plus at 1 capsule per day, there was some regression of the oral tumor, restored appetite with some weight gain, and increased sociability.  Five months later, this cat continues to improve - she regained her normal weight, her oral tumor has regressed 80%, and she has regained the use of her hind legs and tail. additional testimonials

Contagious Dog Flu Virus - Dr. Cynda Crawford, an immunologist at the University of Florida's College of Veterinary Medicine who is studying the virus, said that it spread most easily where dogs were housed together but that it could also be passed on the street, in dog runs or even by a human transferring it from one dog to another. Kennel workers have carried the virus home with them. Read what Dr. Falconer DVM recommends to protect your pet from the Canine Flu disease

Dr. Will Falconer, DVM - "Most of the chronic diseases we commonly see in animals (and humans) have an immune basis, e.g. diabetes, allergies, asthma, thyroid disease, inflammatory bowel diseases, repeated ear infections, cancer, etc. While they can be cured through the careful use of homeopathy, the road to cure can be a long one -- often years if the animal has had years of disease. Transfer factors can significantly shorten the course, by giving a much needed balancing effect to the immune system. If the immune system is overactive as in allergies, ear infections, asthma, diabetes, or hypothyroidism, Transfer Factor can balance this overactivity so the system is not attacking its own organs, overreacting to things that shouldn’t be perceived as a threat. If, conversely, the immune system is under-active as in mange, parasites, viral infections, or cancer, Transfer Factor Plus can clearly stimulate it to better meet the challenges it needs to be alert to."  More about Dr. Falconer

IMPORTANT NOTE: Many veterinarians recommend the human Transfer Factor formulas, instead of the Canine and Feline Complete formula for their sick animals. In the below testimonials, the veterinarians, medical doctor and pet owner used the human formulas, Transfer Factor Classic, Transfer Factor Adv. Formula and Transfer Factor Plus, to treat their animals. Dr. Slagle (above) used the human formula to treat the leukemia, paralyzed cat. Some animals do not tolerate some of the ingredients in the canine or feline complete formulas. The human formula comes in a small capsule and it is easier to give a sick animal who doesn't want to eat. It is easy to shove the capsule into the throat, or empty the content into the pet's food. Some people mix the powder with a little water and squirt it into the animal's throat with an ear syringe."

Transfer Factor is an immune booster nutritional approach in preventive and natural medicine for people and animals according to doctors and veterinariansaRichard H. Bennett, Ph.D - "For decades, the approach to maintaining healthy animals was to wait for signs and symptoms of disease to occur and to counter the challenge with an array of drugs which were toxic for the disease causing agent.  This approach is now being questioned as the armada of drugs is diminishing due to multiple drug resistant pathogens.  Compounding this alarming trend is the current approach to health maintenance which assumes that "all is well" until actual disease processes begin. By this time, the disease is established, sometimes irreversibly, and the damage has occurred.  So the questions arises...What if a new paradigm existed?  Could it be possible to optimize the immune status of animals so that (1) disease is much less likely to occur and (2) if disease does occur, it's severity and duration is minimized?  The answer is YES and this paradigm shift is being engineered by small, naturally occuring protein-like molecules called TRANSFER FACTORS." Dr. Richard Bennett holds a doctorate in Comparatie Pathology from the University of California, Davis.  His work in this area includes basic and applied research in infectious disease microbiology and immunology.

Q & A about Transfer Factor

Rob Robertson, M.D. - "Nearly everything that goes wrong with us and our pets, with the exception of trauma - i.e. broken bones, etc., can be traced directly to an immune system failure".  Pollution, drug overload and nutrient-poor diets compromise our immune health. The key to self-healing is a strong defense system, which protects dogs and cats from everything from the flu germs to cancer cells.  More than their mainstream counterparts, holistic veterinarians believe that a weak immune system plays a key role in causing disease.  Drugs aren't the answer for immune enhancement. The immune system is not responsive to drugs for healing. Antibiotics fight infection, but they don't affect whatever weakened the immune system in the first place.  This is why holistic veterinarians focus less on things that cause diseases and more on those that affect the body's defenses."

What do professionals say about TF Pets?

Dr. Joe Ramaekers, DVM - "Transfer Factor is truly the missing link in the nutritional approach to preventive medicine for all pets.  It is a powerful immune system activator that has the ability to boost the immune system in an entirely different way." 

Dr. Richard Bennett, Ph.D.- "Bacterial infections, viral infections and immune system fatigue cause a host of disease problems in pets, especially in very young and older animals.  Transfer Factor Plus naturally provides full immune system power.  Transfer Factor Plus for pets is a natural and science based product for the health of all our animal friends. Dr. Bennett is an Infectious Disease Microbiologist and Immunologist."

Dr. Sam Jones, DVM  - "Transfer Factor has been a remarkable addition to my veterinary practice.  It is an amazing immune booster that provides support for so many conditions that animals have." 
Dr. William Hennen, Ph.D. - "Transfer factor make up a highly concentrated immune messaging system, designed by nature to transfer immune programming from one individual to another, both human and animal alike."   "Transfer factors are the most exciting discovery in immunology. As the 21st Century unfolds, transfer factor will be one of our greatest keys to health and well being." Dr. Hennen is Vice President of Research and Development at 4Life Research.
Independent Study - 4Life Transfer Factor and Transfer Factor Plus® were tested for their ability to increase Natural Killer Cell (NK) activity. The researchers used peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) isolated from human volunteers. Test results showed that 4Life Transfer Factor boosted NK cell activity 103% above normal immune response without supplementation, more than two times higher than the next highest product. The study also showed that Transfer Factor Plus increased the NK cell activity 248% above normal immune response without supplementation, or about five times higher than any of the other previously tested products.

Dosage and directions for giving Transfer Factor to animals
Dr.Sam Jones, DVM -  "A four month old kitten had a severe skin condition that was diagnosed as ringworm.  After four months of conventional therapy, the resistant ringworm infection was not resolved.  We put the kitten on Transfer Factor and within 5 days there were no apparent ringworm lesions remaining.  Within a few weeks all the hair had grown back - and the now 9 month old cat has a beautiful, glossy coat.  The ringworm lesions have not returned."

Dogs, Distemper, and Transfer Factor Plus
By Dr. Baruch Rosen, M.D. 

As a physician of nearly thirty years, I was well aware that no antibiotic would protect against the ravages of viral disease, particularly canine distemper which shows similarities to HIV.  My seven month old white haired Shepard was adopted from a local shelter and was initially joyful and healthy.  Within three weeks he developed coarse bronchitis with heavy mucus drainage of the nose and eyes.  Our well intentioned vet believed the problem to be kennel cough and started antibiotics.  Over the next ten days Romeo failed to improve, but instead experienced seven hard and long grand mall seizures in one weekend, a partial paralysis of the hind quarters which made him fall flat when attempting to walk and a "spaced-out gaze" of non-recognition.  Blood studies confirmed distemper and showed a white cell count (lymphocytes) of only 264 slightly more than ten percent of normal. Our vet plus a second out-of-state consulting vet, an expert in distemper were very sympathetic and advised me to prepare myself to euthanize Romeo.

The heartache was compounded when Chico, my thirteen month old Chihuahua developed similar symptoms of hard coughing and heavy mucus drainage from the eyes.  Reviewing his shot record, I learned he was mistakenly given only one distemper immunization, leaving him inadequately protected; and by licking Romeo's mucus and drinking from his water dish had contracted the infection.

Knowing little to nothing about canine distemper, I turned to the internet and luckily stumbled on to Transfer Factor Plus, a preparation which enhances and stimulates the body's own immune system to fight against all pathogens, viral or otherwise.  My thirty years in medicine told me this was the only solution.  I hurriedly became a distributor to get the product and started Chico and Romeo on one cap daily encased in one teaspoonful of raw hamburger.  Over the next two weeks all cough and mucus drainage ceased. Romeo's follow-up blood count had risen to normal range at 2217 and he surprised to whole family by jumping a five foot wall.  He romps and plays all day long with Chico, now responds normally to his name and appears to be his old joyful self again. 
Having witnessed the recoveries of Chico and Romeo, and after further study, all family members are taking Transfer Factor Plus, one cap daily; our insurance policy to protect against a faltering immune system, the inevitable consequence of aging and exposure to environmental pollution and toxins.  As for my distributorship status, I fully intend to spread the word to all my colleagues and good friends. Dr. Baruch Rosen, M.D

Fifteen Year Old Dog with Colon Tumors
I am so excited about transfer factor plus. First of all I want to Thank God that He led me to do research online to find holistic healing. I've been giving the product to my senior dog Charlie for nearly two months because his vet told me that Charlie hadtumors in his colon and could be cancerous. I took him to the vet yesterday for a check up and the doctor was amazed, he thought it was a diffrent dog, he said he din't know hat to say except that the tumors are gone. I explained about transfer factors and my prayers and he said that i must have a direct connection to God then cuz then cuz Charlie is doing great, i told him i do and its Jesus Christ.  Esther Lopez

Dog's recover from Auto Immune Haemolytic Anaemia (AIHA)
My dog Arnie had been given up on by the vet. He had acute anaemia, a disease characterized by increased destruction of red blood cells (erythrocytes) by the dog's own immune system, and quite honestly we were making arrangements for his funeral. After one week on Transfer Factor we noticed a dramatic improvement. Three months later,  after finishing the entire course, Arnie is doing so well that he no longer needs Transfer Factor Classic. He now has so much energy on his new diet (James welbeloved) that we have to restrict his intake or we could be pulling him off the ceiling. He is putting on weight steadily as is his partner Heidi, She has been on Transfer Factor also and it has cured her scaly flaky skin condition on her back. Dave Burrows in Eastbourne, United Kingdom

Note: in most of the testimonials, the veterinarians, medical doctor and pet owner used the human formula, Transfer Factor or Transfer Factor Plus, to treat these animals. (They did not use the canine or feline complete formulas) (diffrerence between TF and TF+)

The Feline Leukemia and Feline Immunodeficiency viruses cause the immune system in the cat to become severely compromised.  In many cases, it doesn't function well enough to prevent or overcome illness and disease.  I have been looking for something that I can give sick FeLV+ cats to enhance their immune systems and improve their chances of maintaining good health and fighting illness.  In my search, I found the Transfer Factor products.  I believe that these products, which are a new and completely different approach to enhancing the immune system, will be effective and beneficial to the health and recovery of any sick cat, not just a sick positive cat, and will help maintain immune system efficiency in chronically ill cats." Eileen J. Poole Animal Care Specialist and Feline Consultant  specializing in the care of FeLV+, FIV+ and chronically ill cats. 

Cat with leukemia and discharging profuse green mucus from eyes
"Our daughter's cat, Tigger became very ill, didn't eat for five days, became skin and bones and was stumbling around. His eyes were profusely discharging sticky green mucus. He was so weakened that he would go potty where he  laid. His coat was in terrible shape. Since Transfer Factor had helped improve my health, gave me more energy and enabled me to handle stress better, I decided to give it to Tiger too. I would mix the content of the capsule with a little water and used an ear syringe to squirt it into his throat.  Five days later, Tiger began to eat again and seemed to have more energy.  At that point, I decided to also add marine phytoplankton (FrequenSea) to his soft cat food to  optimize his nutritioinal requirement. A few weeks later,Tigger has gained weight, is bouncier than ever, his eyes have cleared up and he's seems to have fully recovered.  My granddaughter is so happy to have Tigger back."  Patricia

Feline Leukemia"My cat was diagnosed with Feline Leukemia and the vet considered euthanasia. - Nefret was about 8 weeks old when I found her.  I was going to work and looked over into my neighbors driveway and saw what I thought was a baby rabbit...all ears.   The animal got up and started to wobble down the driveway and I realized it was a kitten.  I went over to investigate and found a VERY sick kitten.  I took her into the house and gave my daughter instructions on how to care for her until I got home.  I made a vet appt. for that afternoon.  The vet examined her.  She was severely dehydrated, malnourished, had a major case of hookworms, diarrhea,  and a severe respiratory infection.  She also tested positive for feline leukemia.  The vet suggested, at that point,  to consider euthanasia.  We didn't opt for that and were sent home with an antibiotic and a kitten kit.

Nefret was on the antibiotic for 10 days and was still snotty and sneezing.  We were given a second course of the same antibiotic.  About 5 days into the second course, I came home to find her fairly unresponsive and very warm.  I immediately called the vet and was given the euthanasia option again and was told this was fairly typical of  cats testing positive for feline leukemia.  I asked for a stronger antibiotic instead, said a prayer and went on the net to do some research on alternatives to traditional treatment for this disease.  I read about the 4 Life Transfer Factor.  I ordered and had the transfer factor overnighted.

Nefret received a dose with her morning food and again in the evening.  Her response was amazing.  Within two days she was acting like a normal, wild and wonderful kitten.   She is a little over six months old now.  She was spayed about 5 weeks ago and had a full blood work-up done at that time.  Her blood work came back absolutely normal. The vet was amazed and  couldn't believe that this was the same kitten.  She continues to receive her 4 Life supplement just with her morning food and I will continue that for her lifetime.   I now have a bundle of pure energy and joy in my life". Libby McCourt, - Winchester, Virginia <

Feline Nasal Tumor - "My cat Bodger, who is now16, has been taking the Transfer Factors Advanced Plus. Now, nearly 18 months later I've taken him back to the vet practice for a check up. He still has some discharge from the right side, but no blood and is generally in good health. I saw a different vet this time and he told me there was no way my cat had a nasal tumor of the type diagnosed back in August 2004, because if he had, he'd be dead due to the agressive nature of these type of tumor! He reckons he has sinusitus, due to the previous nasal damage as a kitten, which I always knew he had, but definitely NO TUMOR! So, what can I say but a fantastic result. You are very welcome to include this on your website if it will help others to help their pets. Incidentaly, the vet took all the information on Transfer Factors and was really interested having seen Bodger today." Judith Sexton

TESTIMONIAL - FIV - "Whilst searching the internet for anything that would help my FIV Positive, 8-year-old ocicat, Rosie, I came across information on 4Life transfer factor. Willing to try anything that would help her to ward off the frequent infections and bouts of illness she was having, I contacted Helen Kimball-Brooke, a registered homeopath and distributor for 4Life in London. Rosie has now been on Transfer Factor Plus for almost 8 weeks and the signs are good.  No illness and she is also off the damaging low-dose steroids she was on.  Whilst eight weeks is not a long time, she had been picking up infections every three to four weeks beforehand, so my fingers are crossed!  She has been FIV Positive for several years but was gradually getting a lower and lower immune system.  Hopefully now, with TF+, she has a better chance for a longer life." Kim Stogden-Sykes, Cornwall, England 

In March of 99, my dog Chelsea was diagnosed with lymphatic cancer that was detected by the removal of a tumor from her tonsil. The vet held out little hope for her survival and suggested chemo or radiation therapy. Being a strong believer in natural and alternative medicine, I instead started Chelsea on a regimen of herbs. To the vet's amazement, Chelsea seemed to make a full recovery. In December of 99 another tumor was removed from her throat. The cancer was back.

     When I heard of TF-Pets Canine in August, I put her on it right away and stopped giving her the herbs. Within a week, I noticed a significant improvement. Now, after only 2 months her coat again is soft and shiny, her eyes sparkle and dance and she has so much energy and joy in life. I am so grateful to 4-Life and am now giving hope to others who had lost it.  Nancy M.

Puppies pneumonia, e-coli and staph  "A little over 2 years ago I bought a 4 year old Cocker Spaniel, she has had only 1 live puppy out of 3 litters.  After taking one of the puppies to the vet for an autopsy we found out her puppies were born with pneumonia, loaded with e-coli and staph (mom's uterus was infected).  Her puppies would be born alive and normal weight but start to die over the first 48 hours. To back up a bit... we put her on clavamox from the vet for 10 days after the 2nd litter.  She then had her 3rd litter, which is when we did the autopsy, and put her on clavamox for 2 weeks.  On this last heat cycle we tried it again, my vet said she was such a nice Cocker she didn't see any reasoning to spay her and discontinue trying to breed her (this was our last attempt at breeding her, if no healthy babies we were going to spay her). Two weeks before her delivery date we put her on Transfer Factor Plus 1 pill a day, we will keep her on Transfer Factor Plus until the puppies are 2 weeks of age.  She has 3 strong and healthy babies, all are doing well.  Momma is healthier than ever and also doing very well. I am just THRILLED! " Michelle M.

Dog Cured of Red Mange "I have a French Bulldog Puppy that at about 5 mos. old developed "red mange". I have never heard of it before and I took her to my vet for hair loss around her face and neck. He did a scraping and sure enough, it was mange. He told me that in Bulldog breeds, it is quite common to see an immature immune system. This type of mange is caused by a microscopic parasite that invades the hair follicles and causes the hair loss. 

Most other breeds with stronger immune systems can just fight it off. My vet told me the way to rid my puppy of this was to use a special dip once a week for four weeks. I said OK, sell me this dip and I will apply it. He said no way. That it is VERY toxic and I couldn't handle it without special clothing and gloves. I thought this was the only way to treat this problem.I agreed to bring my puppy back the next day and have her first treatment. 

When I came back to pick her up, I was just sick. My puppy's eyes were blood red and she was just lethargic. I knew right then and there I was not going to bring her back for anymore treatments. I began to research all that I could about how to treat this horrible mange, and that is where I came across the information on Transfer Factor. I ordered a bottle of the Transfer Factor Plus, and began giving it to her right away. Within about ten days I saw her hair was growing back. Within three weeks she was beautiful. I have people stop me and comment about how pretty she is and how nice and shiny her coat looks.

Joe Raemakers, DVM - "We recently had an experience with a 30-year-old horse who had a leg swollen from infection. I applied Transfer Factor directly to the leg and within 6 days the swelling was totally gone. I checked his lymphocyte level and he had a 27% increase since the use of Transfer Factor. THAT'S JUST PHENOMENAL!" more about Transfer Factor for horses

Bleeding- One cat was so weak he could not move from his cage even to pee and would not eat or drink, weighed very little, was bleeding from the ears and nose and wheezed when he breathed and had leukemia. His blood pressure and cell count was so low that the vet said to euthanize him, that his brain was bleeding and he would be dead by morning. They gave him fluids but she said he was too far gone. I gave him a Bio-energetic session and the Transfer FActors Emergency packet that night as well as Tranfer Factors Advanced Plus. The next morning he was not dead. In fact, he was up and out of his cage and eating and drinking. The bleeding from his ears turned out to be a terrible case of ear mites - he was not bleeding from his brain. He made remarkable improvement and in two months with weekly sessions and continued use of the Transfer Factors was a healthy cat. The people have continued to keep him on the Transfer Factors since he has leukemia. Although they haven't had him tested recently and he may not even show positive for it anymore. - Sharen Martinson, Iowa

Dr. Sam Jones, DVM - Two cats, both about 8 years old, had severe diabetes.  It was impossible to get the insulin requirements adjusted.  They had lost weight to a point that they were skin and bones.  Both cats had no quality of life left.  After one week of being on Transfer Factor, we were able to get their insulin requirements adjusted.  It is now six months later and they have both  regained their weight, and have a great quality of life and health.

Paralyzed dog recoverd use of hind legs  "I must say before I received the Transfer Factor I was really anxious and I would afraid that my Ridgeback dog, Linkin, would give up.  As soon as the package arrived from England I started giving Linkin 2 tablets a day for the first 3 weeks. 

He has improved in leaps and bounds and it is hard to believe that some 4 weeks ago he could not walk by himself and could hardly move around at all.  I had to carry his hind legs with a towel around his waist otherwise he just could not get around. 

After two weeks on TF+, he started trying to get up onto his hind legs.  It was difficult and heart breaking to see him struggle but he was trying.  After four weeks on TF+, he managed to walk around even though he lost his balance and he hind legs would give way. 

He is now walking and running around, although still a little wobbly, and he also tries to jump but does not always succeed.  It is absolutely fantastic to see the improvement from week to week."  Antoinette Kean,  South Africa

Kidney and Liver Problems: Several Critically Sick Kitties

Three out of five cats were critically I'll. One of them, my oldest fur ball - mitzi, had juvenile diabetes and his sugar levels had shot up to 300. Otto, my second wonder fur ball had developed acute liver and kidney problems and bagira, my youngest baby who is barely a year old, had also a badly damaged liver. The babies were bags of bones in 4 days. The christmas of 2011 was the worst time of my life. I had never felt so sad and distraught. My babies were inching towards their graves and neither my vet, other vets or my pranic healing sessions on them were having any results. That's when I chanced to learn about Transfer Factor. After having tried the Transfer Factor, on the third day, I had Mitzi, Otto and Bagira jumping all over trying to steal food from the plates of my other babies. Post this period, my babies have only moved forward with their health. I owe the health of my cats and dogs along with my happiness to none other than Transfer Factor Plus. Bonnie Laila, India

"My family has an 11-year old German Shephard mix that spent six days in a traditional vet's office because he could not walk anymore.After the Transfer Factor and flaxseed oil,  this dog is now  walking, frisky and in good spirits." Richard English

Feline with kidney (renal) failure: Full Recovery 

"I have a 15 year old turkish angora named Princess. In February 2009, she was very sick, not eating, and hiding under the bed. We took her to the vet, and they said her kidneys were failing. They did a blood test and her creatine was 7.2. The normal level for cats is 0.8-2.4. She was hospitalized for a week with iv fluids. My husband and I decided to take her home, and started her on transfer factor feline. Three weeks later we took her back to the vet for a checkup, and her creatine dropped to a 4.7. In October we took her in again for a recheck, and she dropped to a 3.5. She still continues to improve. Now she jumps 4 feet ledges, hardly sleeps, and is very active." --- Arlene Metke 

Another Testimonial of Feline Renal Failure Recovery

"My beloved cat Tawny 16 years old was diagnosed with kidney (renal) failure and there wasn't much the vet was offering to do but to put my cat on a very low protein  diet. Tawny didn't want to eat it. He had lost a lot a weight when he got sick. Within 9 mo's he had gone from 8 lbs. to 6 lbs.  I could see his bones in his back. I had given him that tainted cat food unknowingly. I didn't know which way to turn because I just knew I was losing him. Just by luck I happened upon shirleyswellnesscafe and decided this is the route I would try for him. I knew I had to do something because he wasn't eating  but very little. I ordered the Transfer Factor Plus and was assured that this could help him. The price is reasonable for someone living on a fixed income. The order came so fast that I could hardly believe the order was already here. My cat is very hard to give medicine to. I put it in a small amount of beef broth , mixed it  and put it in a syringe and he just sits there and doesn't seem to mind. I was about 3 or 4 days into the medicine, (they say it takes from 5 days to a week to see an improvement) and I thought he was going to die that night, he was still eating very little with me running out and trying to daily find anything he would eat. The next day he started to eat some by himself but still with a lot of coaxing all through the day. As the days went by he would eat a little more until he was eating totally on his own.  He's never been a big eater so it will take awhile to really see a weight gain but I notice the bones on his back don't show anymore. It is now 19 days down the line and for the first time today he came in to eat with us the food we eat and he ate voraciously.  I don't believe I'm going to lose him now as I had thought I would but were it to happen I would feel I made the right choice and did the best I could for him. As we all know there is so much fraud out there and it seems you can't trust anyone anymore because the bottom line is money. I really feel that ShirleysWellness Cafe truly cares about people and pets, something that is so rare to find anymore. Tawny has only been on this near 3 weeks and I'm not stressed anymore about something happening to him. If you have any doubts in your mind about trying Transfer Factor products, you'll find it's the best choice you will have ever made. I just wish I had known about Transfer Factor before my sons beautiful cat just wasted away and died with no concern from the vet except money." Gloria, Idaho Falls, Id.

"My dog, Freckles,  has been on the Transfer Factor for about a month now. WOW! I love this product. She was limping before TF because of the rod that is in her hip. I couldn'd understand because I was feeding her raw food, pure water, and herbal supplements. Shortly after taking TF, I noticed that she doesn't limp at all. I have increased her walks from 30 minutes to 45-60 minutes and she runs the entire time and seems to have a abundance of energy. My main reason for giving her TF was to build her immune system to help fight off heartworm and fleas and ticks since I had decided to put those drugs in her body. She is even healthier now. My sister commented last week that Freckles looks so healthy. Since giving her the TF, I have also included Barleans's flax seed oil for animals, added clay to her water and food and a little sea salt to her water. She is a picture of health. I think she's surpassed me :). Thanks for all your help! Freckles thanks you also." Crystal Dunlap .

Infected Anal Glands and Bleeding Nose Scab
My German Shepherd 9 y.o desexed female, Jeska, was suffering from recurring anal gland infections (blood, pus etc.).  I did not want her to have to go through having them surgically removed.  She suffers terribly when she has anaesthetics and I want to avoid that.  She is fed raw chicken necks, wings, beef marrowbones, chicken mince, rabbit mince, raw minced vegetables, raw egg yolks,  flaxseed oil, yogurt, raw linseed powder with ground nuts, cooked brown rice.

After taking Transfer Factor Plus for a couple of months, the  vet checked her anal glands and the infection was gone. After all the months of agonising as to whether I should take the advice from the vet. to have her anal glands removed, I am just so relieved and grateful that her anal glands are healthy again. 

Also, ever since I brought Jeska home from the dog rescue kennels, at the approximate age of 10 months, her nose has been a huge concern  as the pigment had crusted and peeled and her nose would also bleed very easily in the raw areas.  It has been a constant battle to try to prevent her nose from drying out and crusting by applying products like Vitamin E etc., bu only with only moderate success.  Since giving Jeska the Transfer Factor Plus, her nose has regained all the black pigment and is now looking healthy and smooth. 

Marlene Hunter from Australia

"I have 2 Rhodesian Ridgebacks. Thika, my 3 year old male has been with us since he was a pup and he has been suffering from chronic infected anal glands. Antibiotics were ineffective because they helped only for brief periods. The veterinarian wanted to operate but we refused because it is a dangerous procedure. I searched the internet for a natural solution for anal gland infection and learned about Transfer Factor. I immediately ordered this product and gave it to Thika. Within a short time, his anal glands symptoms cleared up completely. My other dog, 4 year old Zima, was recently adopted and has been experiencing incontinence.  We're not sure of the cause. Her former guardians only walked her a few minutes a day. Now, she goes for walks with us for a couple of hours a day and we've been giving her Transfer Factor daily for a week.  Her incontinence problem has cleared up. Last week I ran out of Transfer Factor Plus and Zima became slightly incontinent again. When we resumed the Transfer Factor, her incontinence cleared up once more." Jan Schaddenhorst, Holland

Jan. 8 to Aug  2003 -  The testimony about Sambo our cat - (born July 1985) - We can hardly believe the recovery Sambo is making.  As of last July he had lost 10 pounds (he had been 16 #) could hardly get up and down the stairs, slept a lot and dumped around. Walked like he was 100 yrs. old and we were sure we were going to loose him. He wasn't eating very much either.  He slowly was getting worse and worse.  He was so skinny and his fur got matted and terrible and then he started pulling his fur out - completely on both sides of his body.  It was an area 2" long and full length of his body and on both sides. We never took him to the vet because we thought he was just getting old and we would just have to accept the fact that we won't have him very much longer. 

We had just heard about Transfer Factor (basic) and we thought if it helps humans, maybe it will help our kitty.  We thought maybe Transfer Factor would at least make him feel better and we started giving him 1-capsule of Transfer Factor on Jan. 8, 2003 (which was the first day Wayne came to our home to have a meeting for some of our friends to introduce them to Transfer Factor - which was new to us too!). 

Right away we could tell that Sambo was getting better and so on Jan. 15, 2003  we increased the dose to 2 capsules a day.   His speedy recovery was hard to believe. He had regained 1/2 lb. by Jan. 18th and his fur was growing back on both sides and the rest of his fur was looking much better too. It had become very matted and ugly.  Energy?  He is bouncing up and down the stairs, up and down from the bathroom sink ( he loves to drink the running water but hadn't been able to make the jump for months) and hardly lays down for naps.  Previously, he had been sleeping a lot.  Once again he is following Neil everywhere as he had done for so many years, he was like our 'young' Sambo again and we knew he was going to be fine!! 

It is now Oct  2003 and he is still doing very, very good.  Has a good appetite, has energy, doesn't sleep very much in the daytime as we would expect an old cat to do and has a lovely new fur coat.  At this point, we decided to try the Feline formula instead of the TF human formula.

Update Dec. 19, 2003. We had to stop giving our cat the Feline Complete formula because Sambo started going down the hill and loosing weight. The Feline Formula did not agree with him. After we resumed giving him Transfer Factor Plus (human formula) Sambo started doing very well again  We are going to get to enjoy our pet longer which pleases us very, very much.. Neil and Patty Trammell

My Siamese cat has severe deterioration in her back legs.  I had taken her to three veterinarians but they couldn't help her.  It got to the point that she couldn't walk.  After taking 3 capsules of Transfer Factor a day, she rarely falls down at all, and she is so much healthier and happier. Donna Hendricks

I have an 11 year-old dog, a Bichon Frise who has had congenital kidney problems.  Two surgeries for bladder stones, being on a urine acidifier for 10 years to keep the infections down, and I had to monitor her urine daily with a urinalysis dip test.  She has been on TF-Pets Canine Formula for two months and she now is off all of her medicine except TF-Pets.  My vet can hardly believe it, but he is now carrying the product in his clinic. Bonnie Lee

"I find that Transfer Factor works really well when applied directly on a tumor. I mix the content of a capsule with a little bit of PURE  water to make a thin paste. I gently apply that paste directly on the tumor once or twice a day, in conjunction with taking one capsule by mouth AM and PM, on an empty stomach,if possible. It can also be gently rubbed under the armpit to be absorbed by the skin. For those who cannot swallow the capsules, the content can be mixed with a SMALL AMOUNT of juice or water or simply rubb it under the armpit." Pat Hartman

"I have two pigeons. I just returned from Germany where there was an international show for pigeons. One of my birds became very ill. Its droppings became very watery and green. I decided to try to Transfer Factor. WOW! The pigeon was up and running around like a spring chic." &mdash; Layne Bowles (dosage for caged birds)

Poodle with Degenerative Disk Disease My poodle, Sydney, was experiencing excruciating and continuous neck and back pain which the Veterinarian diagnosed as Degenerative Disk Disease. Consequently, the Vet prescribed an anti-inflammatory (steroids) and pain medication.   Knowing that steroids have very bad side effects and were nota cure, I searched for an alternative to "modern" medicine. (danger of steroids

I discovered 4Life Transfer Factor Advance Formula which I hoped would at least help Sydney's auto-immune problem.  Once I received my first shipment of 4Life Transfer Factor products I began to safely wean Sydney off the steroids.  Within 4 days of taking the 4Life Transfer Factor, minimal steroids and NO pain medication, Sydney appeared to experience no discomfort and ease of mobility. I have continued administering 4Life Factor Advanced Formula with no steroids or pain medication.  During his first week on this "new" treatment", he ran and played like a puppy without pain. Today, he continues to be very mobile, frisky, and seemingly pain free. 

My wife and I believe that his disease is due to excessive in-breeding and more importantly over vaccination.  We have since ceased his Veterinarian 
prescribed heart worm medication, provided an alternative heart worm therapy (Parasite Dr.), and continued administering 4Life Transfer Factor Advanced Formula.

Noticing Sydney's success, I began taking Transfer Factor Advanced Formula for my psoriasis. Whether my auto-immune system was compromised as a child with vaccinations, I do not know.  However, I do know that the evidence of psoriasis has greatly diminished.  I now plan to increase my dosage. I believe, 4Life Transfer Factor products accompanied with a healthy lifestyle has changed my dog's and my health. Houston Ham

Feline squamous cell tumor in remission
A year and a half ago, my cat was diagnosed with a squamous cell tumor.  The doctor told me that given the location of this tumor and the aggressive nature of it, there really was nothing I could do.  He told me to bring her back for weekly steroid shots and keep her comfortable until she died, which he said would most likely be within a month. She did nothing but lay around.  She wouldn't eat, wouldn't play, wouldn't respond to affection.  I did as he said, for one week.  And then I decided I wasn't going to accept "there's nothing you can do" as an answer.  I got on the internet.  I googled furiously.  What I found, was your site, and Transfer Factor.

I started her out on two Transfer Factor Advanced Plus capsules a day, and within a week, she was back to her normal energy level.  Within a month, she'd stopped clawing at her face.  After three months, I went down to one pill a day, and that's where we are now, a year and a half later.  She won't be fooled by putting the contents in her food, so I've used her fastidious nature against her: I mix the TF with a pinch of butter and put the mixture on her paws.  She hates it, and licks it off immediately.  She's learned to live with this daily ritual for the most part, but she still gets this "Oh mom, not AGAIN" look on her face. She's responded so wonderfully.  It's like she's a kitten again, playing with her yarn and rubbing against my face.  I look at her every day and am simply amazed, that the veterinian was going to be content with steroids until the poor thing finally died. I recommended the Transfer Factor to my neighbor, whose 11 year old dog was diagnosed with bone cancer and given less than three months to live.  That was a year ago - the dog is doing fine!   Bethany in Texas  email:  fingerpaint<at>gmail.com

NOTE: Many veterinarians recommend the human Transfer Factor formulas, instead of the Canine and FelineComplete formula for their sick animals. In the above testimonials, the veterinarians, medical doctor and pet owner used the human formula, Transfer Factor Classic, Adv. Formula and the Plus, to treat their animals, and not the canine or feline complete formulas. The human formula comes in a small capsule and it is easier to give a sick animal who doesn't want to eat. It is easy to shove the capsule into the throat, or empty the content into the pet's food. Some people mix the powder with a little water and squirt it into the animal's throat with an ear syringe.".

Immune system disorders fall into two broad categories:

    Immunodeficiency - when the immune system does not recognize invaders as being undesirable and therefore does not mobilize to destroy them.

    Autoimmunity (self-destruction) - when the immune system fails to recognize 'self' as friendly and mounts an attack on itself." Explaining Autoimmune Disease by David Isenberg, PhD and John Morrow, PhD

Duane Townsend, MD - "Transfer Factor helps to modulate the immune system."

Baruch Rosen MD - "Transfer Factor Plus, a preparation which enhances and stimulates the body's own immune system to fight against all pathogens, viral or otherwise."

Recent studies conducted by the Russian Academy of Medical Science validate these original results and report that 4Life Transfer Factor Advanced Formula boosts NK cell activity by 283 percent and 4Life Transfer Factor Plus Tri-Factor Formula propels NK cell activity to a remarkable 437 percent above normal immune response! Studies also showed that 4Life Tranfer Factor Classic increased NK cell activity by 204 percent when tested at a 48-hour activation time. Test results obtained from two independent NK cell studies. Original test using 4Life Transfer Factor Classic bovine formula utilized a four-hour activation time. Secondary blind study test results, conducted by Dr. Anatoli Vorobiev, head of Immunology, at the Russian Academy of Medical Science, used 4Life Transfer Factor Advanced Formula (Transfer Factor E-XF proprietary blend of both cow colostrums and egg yolk sources) and a 48-hour activation time. Comparison of activation times demonstrated that the longer activation time (48 hours) using the 4Life Classic and Advanced Formulas promoted a significantly greater percentage increase of NK cell response. Samples were tested for maximum time of effectiveness. learn more

Question:Can Transfer Factor Plus help this dog with tumors in his ear?
Dr. Falconer DVM: Yes, the Transfer Factor Plus would be helpful, and with homeopathy and that, surgery could be avoided.  They can look for a qualified homeopath near them at www.theavh.org.  If not, I could work with them by phone, but not for a couple of weeks. It's really amazing to me the way people lock onto the "emergency" need -- got to do this right now!  And only see one option.  Such is the world, I guess.  Fear drives most of conventional medicine.  Good luck getting a word in on natural methods. I'd dose the Transfer Factor Plus, Advanced Formula, at 2 capsules twice a day, and after a week, take it to 3 capsules twice a day.  Should be not averse effects whatsoever, and could only help.  They should give it a month, as this is very chronic.  If they work with a homeopath, it'll be somewhat faster.  And they'll learn not to vaccinate this poor devil, which may have a big role in causing these polyps. Will Falconer, DVM

Question: What do you recommend for a 3 year old dog with advanced oteosarcoma?  (bone cancer)
Dr. Falconer DVM: "The products I'd recommend for his situation are the following: Transfer Factor animal stress pack, (can only be used for up to 14 days), Transfer Factor Plus Tri-Factor Formula and Choice Prime. The regimen for him would be to start the Stress Pack according to label instructions, and, after a few days on this, I'd add in the TF Plus at 2 twice a day. The Choice Prime is a very potent antioxidant that's had some anticancer effects.  Dose him at 1 twice a day, right from the beginning, and stay with that dose.  Should also help with pain"

Deadly, Contagious Dog Flu Virus

Question: Can Transfer Factor Plus offer an effective means of staving off the Canine Flu disease?
Dr. Falconer DVM: Absolutely! If the immune system is primed, it doesn't matter what one is exposed to in terms of infectious agents. They will be seen as foreigners. Best strategy is to prime the immune system *beforehand* though -- much less effect trying to treat ones already ill. To treat diarrhea, whether it's caused by parvo, this so-called flu, e.coli, or whatever, the Transfer Factor Plus Advanced Formula shines. Pediatrician Dr. Markowitz M.D., told how it saved children with acute diarrhea who were very seriously ill with the Transfer Factor Plus Tri-Factor Formula. This is off label use, but illustrates the point. Anyone facing infectious diarrhea in any species should be armed with this! Can't be overemphasized -- this will save lives.

Question: My rabbit had uterine cancer removed 2 years ago. Was ok for 2 years. And recently had another tumor removed which had broken through the skin. The vet told me he had the tumor tested, and that the cancer had reached the outer edges. And so has probably begun to form in other areas, of the rabbits body. So this seems like the best time. To try Transfer Factor. But- rabbits are really delicate digestive systems. What is your Opinion on this?
Dr. Falconer DVM: You are very right about this species having it's digestive issues. We learned that antibiotics can really harm these creatures. The beauty of the Transfer Factor products is that they do not upset balance anywhere in the body, but greatly aid in the restoration of same, especially in the immune system. The safest bet would be to start with the plain Transfer Factor Advanced Formula, which is only the colostrum and egg yolk derived Transfer Factor. Once on that for a couple of weeks, say at 1 cap twice a day, I wouldn't hesitate to add some of the Transfer Factor Plus Adv Formula to the equation, say at one cap per day. If that's well tolerated, I might consider giving 1twice a day after a couple of weeks, in addition to the Transfer Factor Advanced at the same dose.

Q & A about Transfer Factor

When Dr. Burlingame started using Transfer Factor and Transfer Factor Plus in his veterinary practice, he didn’t always get the results he hoped for. Since then, he says, he’s discovered that for maximum benefit, Transfer Factor needs to be started early and at high enough doses.  “It’s a numbers game when you’re dealing with bacteria and viruses,” he says. It is crucial to get high enough numbers of transfer factors into the system to combat the high levels of bacteria or viruses. Recently, Dr. Burlingame had a four-month-old puppy come into to his clinic. The puppy had bloody diarrhea and all the symptoms of parvovirus. In addition to the typical antibiotics, antiemetics, and IV fluids, he gave the puppy 1,400 mgs per day of Transfer Factor (supplement facts). The puppy was home in three days. “I wish I had this a long time ago,” he says.  According to Dr. Burlingame, Transfer Factor usually takes about 48 to 72 hours to educate the immune system. He looks for a regression in symptoms, particularly in the case of infections, within the first 48 to 72 hours. He says he will often see an improvement or increase in white blood cell counts in that time frame as well. And, overall, the patient will begin to feel and therefore act better."

Directions for giving the human formula Transfer Factor to animals,  as suggested by the 4Life Company:

Transfer Factor Classic or Advanced Formula ------------Dr. Burlingame's comment on dosage--------Dosage for Caged Birds

  • Small Animals 0-30 lb. One quarter to one capsule daily (3 to 6 capsules a day can be used with excellent results)
  • 30-60 lb. One capsule 2x daily. (3 to 6 capsules a day can be used with excellent results)
  • 60 lb -up One capsule 3x daily (6 to 9 capsules a day can be used with excellent results)
  • Large Animals  One capsule 3x daily. (6 to 12 capsules a day can be used with excellent results)
Transfer Factor Advanced Formula Plus
  • Small Animals: 1-40 lb. One quarter to one capsule daily (4 capsules a day can be used with excellent results)
  • 40-60 lb: . Two capsules a day. (4 capsules a day can be used with excellent results)
  • 60 lb.-up:  Three capsules daily. (4 to 6 capsules a day can be used with excellent results)
  • Large Animals:  Two capsules 2 to 3x daily (6 to 12 capsules a day can be used with excellent results)
Dosage for Caged Birds-- (as suggested by Dr. Falconer DVM ) "Use Transfer Factor animal stress pack. Mix 1 level tsp./ 2 oz. (5T.) water. Give as drinking water. For larger amounts (pigeons, poultry, etc.) mix 1 to 2 oz. (1/2 to 1 packet) Stress Pack with 1 gallon of drinking water. Change water daily and give 7-14 days. This would be useful in any infectious diseases and is intended for use in short term (max 14 days) only. I also use the animal stress pack when I want to get high levels of the TF in someone right away. It's very soluble and tasty in this form. For longer term use, say in liver disease or tumors, I'd graduate to the TF Plus Feline Complete, guestimating the dosage based on bodyweight from the cat dose. This is a powdered form with a very good balance of added nutrients that cats readily accept. I'd guess it could be top dressed on some moist bird food like fruit."

These products have absolutely no toxicity or side effects even at mega doses. You may increase the amounts even further to achieve the desired level of immune efficiency.

Note: Some veterinarians start animals on a small amount of Transfer Factor Plus for 3 consecutive days and increase the dose gradually. The content of the capsule can be mixed with pet food or treats (sardines, cheese, etc.) Some pet owners find it easier to shove a capsule in the pet's throat or to mix the content in a little broth and use a syringe to inject the product into the animal's mouth. Although Transfer Factor and Transfer Factor Plus  are best given throughout the day, satisfactory results have been obtained by giving the dose once a day. The 4Life company recommends to double or triple these amounts if the animal is ill in order to increase the efficiency of the immune system further. There is no report of overdosing on TF or TF Plus even when consuming massive amounts.

These products have absolutely no toxicity or side effects even at mega doses. You may increase the amounts even further to achieve the desired level of immune efficiency.

Dr. Will Falconer, D.V.M. Certified Veterinary Homeopath, Alternatives for Animal Health, Austin, Texas.

Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, University of Missouri 1980. Practice followed, with the first seven years providing conventional medical and surgical care to creatures large and small. Retraining in methods natural included certification in acupuncture by the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society, followed by certification as a Veterinary Homeopath by the Academy of Veterinary Homeopathy. Dr. Falconer has since 1992 dedicated his practice to classical homeopathy, with animal patients around the globe. Dr Falconer also uses Transfer Factor in his practice.

As a Certified Veterinary Homeopath, my practice is dedicated to curing my patients gently, quickly, and permanently, by following clearly comprehensible principals of treatment. I’m very particular about what I will use besides homeopathic remedies, as other treatments, like strong herbs or acupuncture, can interfere with the action of remedies, and spoil the outcome for my patients. So, it was very exciting to learn about these natural, colostrum-derived supplements that actually transfer intelligence from one immune system to another, even across species lines. What it means is that I have a very potent yet gentle means to help my patients hasten their recovery from the chronic diseases so prevalent in practice today.

The philosophy of Alternatives for Animal Health is that we work with your animal’s innate healing abilities to achieve an optimal state of health. This is best accomplished by the smooth working together of doctor, care giver, and animal. The doctor depends on you the care giver to carefully watch and report on symptoms. He will use the information you provide to carefully guide the course of homeopathic care for your individual animal. As no two animals are exactly alike, even if they have the same diagnosis, we will focus on how your individual animal manifests illness and health. This uniqueness will guide the treatment according to the clear principals of classical homeopathy.

I am very excited to have such a subtle, gentle, yet potent technology as transfer factors to hasten my patients’ return to full health. I recommend the Transfer Factor products for any animal (or their human) who faces immune system challenges. My plan is to regularly publish cases here that show the effects of transfer factor therapy, and keep the community of animal caretakers apprised of my results with these products. I am especially interested in animals with cancer who have not had surgery, radiation, or chemotherapy. As much of my practice is long distance, feel free to contact me if you are interested in this approach for your animal.

The Cats are Talking... About Chronic Disease
by Will Falconer, DVM, Certified Veterinary Homeopath

Note: This article  not meant to be a "feline" article per se.  At first glance, it may seem to be that, but it's in fact more of an exposure of modern medicine, veterinary as well as human.

Having watched animals and their illnesses for the last twenty-odd years of practice, I am seeing a disturbing trend. Have you noticed it, too? When illness strikes our pets, it is long term, chronic, and difficult to cure. The best that conventional medicine seems able to do is to (barely or briefly) control symptoms, but these poor creatures never get back to a normal, enthusiastic level of health. We've all seen these animals: they are allergic to something and itch a lot; they have thyroid problems and lose their hair or their body weight (depending on whether they have too little or too much thyroid function); they have stiffness and pain in their joints; or their teeth get filthy regularly, and they don't stay clean with our best efforts at dental hygiene. Why is this becoming so common? When I look at it carefully, it's apparent that we are not raising healthy pets. Oh, we try, we follow the veterinary line that says we should vaccinate every one every year, we should feed only one kind of food from a bag or can, we should brush teeth regularly, control fleas with the latest chemicals, but where is this getting us and our four-footed companions? The cats are telling a story about this that I want to share with you.

Back twenty some years ago, dogs were the most popular pet in America. Cats were less popular, and, therefore, had less likelihood of being brought to the vet. As the years went on, more people lived in smaller spaces, led busier lives, and had less time to care for a dog, but wanted that special companionship that a pet can bring, so cats grew in popularity, until, by the mid-80's, they overtook dogs in numbers owned per capita. And where did the conscientious pet owners get their advice on raising the healthiest cats they could? From their local veterinarian, of course. What was the definition of giving the best care? Vaccinating annually, feeding Science Diet, brushing teeth, treating for fleas, etc. Just like it had been for years before with the canine population.

Interestingly enough, the diseases that are quite common in cats now were virtually unknown in the late 70's when I was in veterinary school. We had two donated diabetic beagle siblings who lived in the hospital and taught us about this strange disease. It was something we never saw in cats, and it was pretty uncommon in dogs for that matter. We learned of hypothyroidism from several canine cases, but cats didn't have thyroid problems, and hyperthyroidism was not in the books or the exam rooms. We saw horrible skin allergies in dogs, with crusts and scabs and red feet and unending itchiness, but we didn't see cats with this disease, either.

Well, if you've been observant in recent years, you know that these chronic diseases are fairly commonplace now in the feline population. As are heartworm (again, a dog disease originally), asthma, kidney failure, inflammatory bowel disease, dental calculus and decay, heart disease, and cancer. Why? Could it be that the cat is now following the same road that the dog has gone down? I think so, and what's more, I think we need to redefine what is the best way to raise a healthy animal.

More veterinary care in the usual preventative way has backfired, and I think we are actually causing these chronic diseases to become more prevalent. While prevention is still most important, it's not best done by annual vaccines, toxic food, and topical flea poisons that warn us not to get them on our skin.

And guess what? Wild cats like the lynx and bobcat are not experiencing these chronic degenerative diseases. Wolves don't die of heartworm disease or have dirty teeth. And nobody is dropping them heartworm pills monthly nor brushing their teeth. Might we do better to follow their example (fresh, healthy food, no/minimal vaccines, no toxic chemicals)? I think we will all be happier and see less disease in all species when we do. I know this approach works. Experience has borne it out in daily practice on hundreds of animals. Question the norm! Don't raise an average animal in the common way.  The cats are talking. Are you listening? 

Mange - Many normal dogs carry the mange parasite. Holistic veterinarians believe that it becomes a problem and spreads through the skin when there are immune problems, inherited skin defects or illness for other reasons. Holistic treatments aim to improve the general health, particularly the immune system, and to homeopathically treat the inherited factors.

Dr. Will Falconer DVM - "Demodectic mange mites are common flora in man and animals. Reread that if you think this is a typo, because it’s a fact: we all have demodectic mites as residents on our skin. Why aren’t we all itchy and broken out with eruptions? Only one reason: the immune system keeps these parasites in check. So, when a dog is diagnosed with demodectic mange, and he’s got crusty patches around his face or toes or all over, what that means, first and foremost, is that his immune system needs help! Unfortunately, the common treatment is to dip the affected dogs in very toxic chemicals to kill the mites. So toxic, in fact, that the personnel dipping the dog wear rubber gloves and aprons! This has never made sense to me, as we know poisons have a clearly detrimental effect on the immune system. Wouldn’t it make more sense to strengthen the immune system and thereby get the normal flora of mites back in control? It can be done, and Transfer Factor Plus Advanced Formula would be the best course, along with Canine Complete. For the average 40 - 60 lb dog, I’d start with Animal Stress Pack at recommended doses for two weeks. Then, follow this with Canine Complete at label doses and add the Transfer Factor Plus Tri-Factor Formula at two capsules twice a day. To discourage mites topically, paint on lavender essential oil, diluted 1:10 with almond oil. This can be applied twice a day. Be sure to avoid the eyes, however. You’ll need to give this regimen time, from at least a few weeks to a few months. And, again, don’t short change nutrition, avoid vaccines, and work with your homeopathic veterinarian to improve health and cure the underlying illness that allowed the immune system to get so sluggish."
