Salt therapy for Lola?
« on: May 25, 2012, 08:08:45 AM »

Gail, have you looked at Salt Therapy?  A friend with bad sinus has just had two sessions (intends to have another two), and said it cleared her congestion (read snot) dramatically.  They put you in a room with Himalayan  salt on the floor & blow very fine salt into the room which you breath in; it breaks down the mucus.  Worth a bit of research at least don't you think?

Gail,

I have used salt myself for sinus problems in the past.  You could dissolve ordinary sea salt in some water and use a dropper or syringe to administer it- if Lola will let you of course. :)

She won't. She is even afraid to drink water because her tremors get her to dunking her nose in the water. She would think I was trying to drown her.

Few points:
- BOILED water - not directly tap water, since it's full o' germs
- lukewarm water - if it's too hot, it can cause harm
- appropriate amount of salt - i sed 2 tsp per 1 l but that was for me, not my dog.
