Silver has been used for healing as far back as ancient Egypt through modern times as a natural broad-spectrum antimicrobial that suffocates and disempowers over 650 types of disease-causing pathogens. I often wonder if they used some form of silver water for horses back in the middle ages?
Using colloidal silver regularly does not create treatment resistant strains of bacteria as we know that using antibiotics does. Nor does it have the side effects of constant use of steroids and antibiotics most equine vets push.
Silver in its colloidal form is easily absorbed into the cellular structure of the animal & used to kill bacteria & viral infections and just keeps away low lying pathogens, sometimes almost miraculously.
Colloidal silver is just a watery liquid with suspended micro-particles of silver in distilled water.
Colloidal Silver is created by electrolysis of this distilled water using two electrodes made of silver. Since the size of the silver particles is because of the amount of current between the 2 electrodes and the current does not change, the suspended silver particles produced are all of similar size.
Colloidal silver is odorless & tasteless.
The silver particles suffocate the respiration of the pathogens & therefore they cannot survive if the colloidal elements are circulating in the horse’s system.
It can be sprayed to disinfect the barn and stalls
Silver is a successful antimicrobial for equines because, depending on the specific pathogen, it either blocks the microbe from the use of oxygen, inhibits DNA replication, or interferes with microbial energy production. This is great news for us that are tired of giving our horses antibiotics for every little aliment.
Colloidal silver is also known as a powerful antifungal and can be used to treat fungal conditions such as candida, thrush, ringworm and other fungal type issues we often see with our horses.
It is my go-to first aid product for just about everything. CS helps to boost the natural immune system to assist the horses own natural healing ability to heal. This is extremely helpful for wounds and cuts, quickly repairing skin tissue and keeping proud flesh from growing.
Colloidal silver is a very valuable natural remedy for horses and all pets. As it boosts the immune system and kills low lying pathogens if used internally, and great for all types of infections, wounds, cuts, scrapes, abscesses etc, externally. Colloidal silver can be used as an alternative to allopathic antibiotics, and much safer without the side effects.
It is like a super healing catalyst, by disintegrating the actual enzymes required by anaerobic bacteria. It disables pathogens from doing any further damage. Colloidal silver causes no harm to the beneficial, friendly microbiome in the lower intestinal tract. This is why, it is believed that bacteria cannot develop a resistance to silver, as can be the case with conventional type antibiotic drugs.
CS has been shown to eliminate at least 650 types of bacteria, fungi, and viruses in people and animals. Because of the way it works with pathogens by suffocation, it is less probable to cause resistant strains to start up as overuse of antibiotics has been known to trigger.
Use for Horse Care
Colloidal silver’s amazing microbial action can promote the quick healing of injured tissues which makes it a great topical healing product for all kinds of horse health concerns.
Topical use - wounds and atypical skin conditions- spray on area 2-4 times a day
Eye infections - Drop via dropper or spray directly into eyes, safely 2-3 times a day
Respiratory issues - Nebulize it- 15 minutes per day for respiratory conditions
For any type of wounds, cuts or abscesses - use colloidal silver in a spray bottle and clean the wound opening with it daily. You can use a syringe without the needle (of course) and inject the silver up into the abscess to clear out any pus. Do this 2-3 times a day/ It can also be soaked on a piece of cotton and carefully pushed into the draining wound. It keeps the lesion clean and allows it to heal quickly without the growth of proud flesh.
Insect or tick bite that has a reaction- spray on area 2-3 times a day, as well as using for sweet itch.
Oral Use: 1 oz in syringe or up to 1 cup or more per day for a horse in water. ( depending on what you are treating)
Use for anything nasty going on with your horse!
- Eye infections
- greasy heels
- hoof abscesses
- Insect bites
- Preventing proud flesh
We have used colloidal silver as a natural remedy for our horses and seen amazing healing results several times. It is absolutely a must have in every barn!
