Some Common Uses of GSE on Dogs
- Ear Infections: Mix 4-10 drops of GSE with ½ oz of 100% pure aloe vera juice. Use it to clean the ears 2-3 times a day.
- Skin Bacterial/Fungal Infections: Mix 10 drops of GSE per tablespoon of shampoo. Use it to wash the dog, let the shampoo stay on the dog for 5-10 minutes before rinsing it off. Make sure that the shampoo does not get near or into the eyes!You can also make a spray. Mix 30-40 drops of GSE with one liter of water in a spray bottle, and spray affected areas 2-3 times a day. Again, avoid the eyes!
- Itchy, Yeasty Paws: If your dog has “yeasty” paws, make a foot soak using GSE – In a bucket or similar container, mix 30-40 drops of GSE with one liter of water. Soak your dog’s feet a few times a day.
- Minor Cuts & Wounds: Use 1-5 drops of GSE in 2.5 ml of water. Apply the solution to the wound frequently (3-4 times/day) to promote healing.GSE can be diluted and used to treat bacterial and fungal infections of the skin and the ears that so often happen in our dogs. It can also be used on other dog skin problems such as skin rashes, mange, and to repel fleas. Here are some examples of how you can use GSE to treat common infections in dogs
For Candida yeast infections, try putting 3 drops of GSE in your dog’s food twice daily. Putting the GSE in the food is the easiest way to give it to your dog. Most dogs do not mind it in their food.
If your dog suffers from tummy upset (e.g. diarrhea, gas) due to bacterial or viral infections, put one drop of GSE per 10 pounds (5 kg) of body weight in the food, 2-3 times a day. For acute infections, the dosage can exceed the above amount.
For parasites such as giardia or minor intestinal worm infestations, use 10-15 drops of GSE per 10 pounds of body weight, up to 3-5 times a day.
Finally, you can always add GSE to your dog’s food to prevent infections and repel fleas. In such cases, as a general guideline, the dosage is 1-1.5 drops per 10 pounds (5 kg) of body weight, twice daily.
