AN209 Leptospirosis Bacteria SOLUTION, Dogs and cats (use with or without the doxycycline antibiotic)
In a mature, healthy dog or cat, the blood infection will trigger a response from the immune system, which will, in turn, wipe out all (or nearly all), of the infection. But sometimes in healthy adults (and most of the time in immature or elderly animals), the immune system alone will not fully eradicate the bacteria. Those left behind may damage the host organs, especially the kidneys; this can be fatal if left untreated.
The symptoms and effects of a leptospirosis infection include sudden fever and illness, stiff or sore muscles, shivering, lethargy, loss of appetite, weakness, depression, dehydration, increased thirst, lack of urine or inability to urinate, vomiting, diarrhea, discolored and spotted gums, anemia (yellowing of the skin or whites of the eyes), a cough, a fever, a runny nose, and swollen lymph nodes.
If your pet is on this antibiotic or had this treatment is very important to repair gut flora (gut flora helps protect against infections), adding a good strong probiotic. I really like and recommend either the " ProBiotic 12 Powder" * 200 Billion CFU’s (brand - Seeking Health) Seeking Health website or other websites also sell this. * it can take 2 months to restore flora, so continue the probiotic for this length of time. As you know drug antibiotics destroy all the good flora protection in the gut. And this one of the problems people find when they stop the drugs, ill health can return - symptoms can come back if not as acute, but chronic health issues.
Causes of Leptospirosis Infection
The bacteria that cause the infection are typically found in wet, humid, warm environments, as in tropical or subtropic zones. They can be found anywhere there is standing water or mud, such as in marshes, swamps, or irrigated fields.Companion animals and their owners typically come into contact with the bacteria through direct contact with infected mud or soil, or through contact with an infected animal’s urine, feces, or bodily fluids.
The homeopathic "Leptospirosis Oral Nosodes"
Prophylactics are homeopathic remedies used for disease prevention. Use this oral nosode as a protection for all species. However, If your pet has been diagnosed with having this type of bacterial infection (Leptospirosis) and is showing symptoms, please contact our office for what other alternatively you can look at some of the suggested formulas below to help you select natural medicines for your pet.
What is an Oral Nosode?
A nosode could be described as an "oral vaccine" in the sense that its purpose is to "immunize" the body against a specific disease. It is prepared from the actual organism which is associated with the disease in question and may derive from filtrates containing only the exotoxins of the bacteria, or from emulsions containing both bacteria and their toxins. These filtrates are then potentized a million times to produce the energy only of the disease and this energy stimulates the entire natural immune system to react against a specific disease, so this becomes an oral vaccine for humans as well as pets. However, we do recommend avoiding this vaccine altogether.
This Vaccination has a very common serious side effects. The leptospirosis vaccine is a bacterin a vaccine made from killed bacteria, which in and of itself won prompt an immune response to make antibodies, so a powerful adjuvant (usually, as with all vaccines - contains a heavy metal such as aluminum or mercury, aka thimerosal) is added that elicits a strong immune system response. Because of this, it also carries a significantly greater risk for adverse reactions.
Unfortunately, many vets are still promoting repeated vaccinations for all pets, despite the significant risks associated with unnecessary revaccination.
Dr. K. Becker commented on this vaccine, as the lepto infection is entirely treatable. So, her question is, why vaccinate for something that's one hundred percent treatable? Dr. Becker says she has handled about a dozen cases of lepto in my career and have never had a dog experience any lingering problems from the infection.
Which she recommends that you skip the leptospirosis vaccine.
If you live in a lepto-endemic area, make sure your dog's immune system is strong, and you can certainly go the extra mile by taking precautions to ensure your pet doesn't have an opportunity to be exposed to the leptospirosis bacteria. Earlier this year, a local ABC affiliate in Chicago, ABC7 Eyewitness News, decided to investigate dog owner claims (no mention of how many) that vaccine side effects had caused harm to their pets.According to Julie Harding, owner of a 4-year-old Vizsla, her pet suddenly became violent and vicious, foamed at the mouth, thrashed about, and suffered unexplained seizures.
The woman took her dog, Piper, to a veterinary neurologist who diagnosed her showing symptoms of meningitis (acute inflammation of the brain). Reference: from Dr. Becker DVM (USA).
Meningitis - which is a life-threatening condition characterized by inflammation of the layers that protect the brain and spinal cord. Autoimmune disorder - which is the body manufactures antibodies against its own tissues, producing a massive inflammatory response. We could only guess this collapse of the immune system was through shock. The antigens of Leptospirosis Vaccine do the same harm to the immune system as possibly a natural infection in the following ways.destroying the kidney in 48 hours, causing dermatitis, Increasing risk of cancer from the adjuvant, upregulation of IgE which can result in allergies, asthma, atopy, anaphylaxis.
There are definite risks to the lepto vaccine but the most compelling reason to steer well clear of it is the fact that even if your dog survives this dangerous vaccine without any apparent short-term damage, he is only protected for a couple of weeks for the serovars (bacteria or viruses) that are most likely to cause harm eventually. Leading Vaccine Expert Very Disappointed with Amount of Vaccines Still Being Given.
The ABC7 reporters also consulted my friend Dr. Ronald Schultz, a world-renowned expert in the field of veterinary vaccines and an immunologist at the School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Wisconsin. Dr. Schultz is currently heading up the Rabies Challenge Fund to determine the duration of immunity conveyed by rabies vaccines. Dr. Schultz told ABC7 he questions the need to vaccinate so often. "It's very disappointing to me to still have distemper, parvo, and adno [adenovirus] given every year when we know it provides a life of immunity," he said. This is especially true since the latest canine vaccination guidelines, updated four years ago, call for extending the time between core vaccines from one year to three years, while also acknowledging that immunity lasts at least 5 years for distemper and parvo, and at least 7 years for adenovirus. This is essentially an admission that even the new 3-year interval guideline is overkill. Unfortunately, two full years after the new guidelines were published, over half of veterinarians were still doing unnecessary, potentially dangerous annual re-vaccinations. As Dr. Schultz explained to ABC7, vaccinating an already-immune animal may cause a hypersensitivity reaction.
Suggested for Bacterial infection A lepto infection primarily affects the kidneys and liver (hepatitis) inflamed liver. When symptoms do occur they usually appear between 4 and 12 days after exposure to the bacteria, and can include fever, muscle pain, vomiting and diarrhea, loss of appetite, lethargy, depression, and blood in the urine.
HAMPL Reno-Aid 19-1 50ml drops
Kidney support and helps reduce High BUN and Creatine levels.
HAMPL Hepatitis 37 - Jaundice 30ml (inflamed liver).
HAMPL Herbal Infection fighter 71 50ml (infections, local or systemic)
HAMPL Pain Eze 32 30ml fever, shaking etc, repeat a dose every 5 minutes until more relaxed. If you start putting drops on the body whilst at the vet (ask the nurse to assist) during the day, this will help get your pet out of the hospital much quicker and also they will feel like eating again.
If not assisting pet whilst (or if in hosp) we cannot guarantee that they will do well just on drug antibiotics and IV.
Or we (HAMPL) can do an individual distant consultation and provide natural medicines that are required to work quickly of your dogs or cats symptoms of discomfort, fever, and pain. Tests will show says that the liver and kidney enzymes are high.
Signs of significant infection of the blood (high white blood cell count - septicemia).
If your pet is at the Vets, will be put on an IV and will administer three different antibiotics. For long-term autoimmune support, as infection will come back if you vaccinate your dog again.
Non-Drug Prescription - Set of 3 - for all species and ages
Bacterial Infection TREATMENT for cats and dogs (or human).
Can be used in conjunction with drug Doxycycline or the alternative antibiotic (effective with no side effects).
Conventional Treatment - Leptospirosis is generally treated with antibiotics (two weeks of Doxycycline antibiotic drug).
When treated early and aggressively, the chances for recovery are good but there is still a risk of permanent residual kidney or liver damage. Unfortunately the antibiotic drug (doxycycline) common side effects may include nausea, vomiting, upset stomach and pain, diarrhea; skin rash or itching; or vaginal itching or discharge.
Note: If your pet is on this antibiotic or had this treatment is very important to repair gut flora (gut flora helps protect against infections), adding a good strong probiotic. I really like and recommend either the " ProBiotic 12 Powder" * 200 Billion CFU’s (brand - Seeking Health) Seeking Health website or other websites also sell this. * it can take 2 months to restore flora, so continue the probiotic for this length of time.

* Hydration (if needed)
SubQ fluids (not IV) can do this at home or ask Vet to assist.
e.g Warmed up plain saline solution (Hartmann's) dribbled under the skin, take 10 minutes to give 100ml to a small dog or 80ml for a cat or toy dog. * See instructions on our how to give fluids at home, takes 5 minutes (product AN108) SubQ Set of SubQ fluid hydration therapy. Can order from us or find a friendly caring vet who can supply the small needles and the 1litre bag of saline solution to you.
Goldenseal - Goldenseal has been shown in the research to be both antibiotic and antiviral. It is possible that berberine (a major component of goldenseal) also kills a wide range of other types of germs in test tubes, such as those that cause candida (yeast) infections and parasites such as tapeworms and Giardia. Berberine may also activate white blood cells, making them better at fighting infection and strengthening the immune system.
Pau d Arco - an antifungal known to treat Candida albicans, Candida tropicalis, and Cryptococcus neoformans, that was similar to Amphotericin B. The presumed antifungal activity of lapachol is believed to be due to its interaction with the cellular membrane.
Baptisia (wild indigo) - herb has numerous medicinal properties. It is not only helpful in aiding the purifying of the blood through the liver, and to increase bile production. but it also helps our spleen and the glands in our lymphatic system. It has high detoxifying properties and is mainly used to remove the toxic substances in the body.
Lemon balm- herb, kills cofactors of other illness caused viruses including the bacteria Streptococcus, E.Coli, Bartonella, Babesia, Mycoplasma Pneumoniae, and Chlamydophila pneumoniae, plus Fungus Candida. This reduces the strain on the Immune System.
Blue Flag - herb has numerous medicinal properties. It is not only helpful in aiding the purifying of the blood through the liver, and to increase bile production, but it also helps our spleen and the glands in our lymphatic system. It has high detoxifying properties and is mainly used to remove the toxic substances in the body.
Olive Leaf - either kills, or resists the multiplication of a broad range of viruses, bacteria, yeasts, fungi, and other parasites From research and clinical experience to date, we can say that supplemental olive leaf may be beneficial in the treatment of conditions caused by, or associated with, a virus, retrovirus, bacterium or protozoan. Among those treatable conditions are: influenza, the common cold, candida infections, meningitis, Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), encephalitis, herpes I and II, human herpesvirus 6 and 7, shingles (Herpes zoster), HIV/ARC/AIDS, chronic fatigue, hepatitis B, pneumonia, tuberculosis, gonorrhea, malaria, dengue, severe diarrhea, and dental, ear, urinary tract and surgical infections. is used for treating viral, bacterial, and other infections including influenza, swine flu, the common cold, meningitis, Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV), encephalitis, herpes, shingles, HIV/ARC/AIDS, and hepatitis B. Olive leaf is also used for pneumonia.
SubQ fluids (not IV) can do this at home or ask Vet to assist.

Can add other vitamins (crushed) Alkaline green powders etc. to mix.
Refer to Bottle Label for amount of drops per species size. e.g 60 drops = 1 teaspoon
What I do for example: If I was needing to give herb treatments and/or vitamin supplements to feline or toy dog or other small animals – I add this herbal formula to a small bowl add some boiled water (about a teaspoon) to it so to dissolve the alcohol in it, let cool, then add what vitamins If needed (powder or crushed tab – a pinch) mixed in another 50ml of water, and oral syringe once a day or twice a day …smear on a little “vegemite paste” (if cannot get Vegemite in your country, try fresh pate or slippery elm powder added can help mask the taste) around and on tip of oral syringe, as felines seem to real like the taste of this paste, but not too much as it is quite a strong taste)
(c)“NUTRITIONAL Mix ” Giving vitamins and supplements (tablets or powders) Note: always crush tablet before adding to food or liquid mix. Felines or small animals: make up 1 cup of mixture, adding approx. a pinch of some type of Green powder (alkaline powder) or Chlorella powder (cleansing of toxins) or 1/4 Teaspoons of Slippery elm powder (to mask the taste) with 1 teaspoon of herbs if you are having to also give herbal medicines (i.e. brown liquid) Med to large animals: add twice to three times the amount.
DOSING: Feline or small animal: using an oral syringe draw up 1ml and gently small sips. Or add a teaspoon to meals if they don’t mind eating it with meals (mix well into food) Do not put in Fridge. Room temp is best as too cold is dislike by felines.
DOSING: Canine, equine, cow, sheep, goat: try mixing well into food and hand piece before feeding main meals. Or dose same as suggested for felines, but add three times as much herbal medicines and vitamins to 1/2 cup of water or (unsweetened) apple sauce or apple juice.
What I do for example: If i was needing to give herb treatments and/or vitamin supplements to feline or toy dog or other small animals – I add this herbal formula to 1/2 cup of boiled hot water to it so to dissolve the alcohol in it, let cool, then add what vitamins If needed (powder or crushed tab – a pinch) mixed in another 50ml of water, and oral syringe once a day or twice a day …. smear on a little “vegemite paste” (if cannot get Vegemite in your country, try fresh pate or slippery elm powder added can help mask the taste) around and on tip of oral syringe, as felines seem to real like the taste of this paste, but not too much as it is quite a strong taste)

FOR CONDITIONS like …. diarrhea, stomach ulcers, or sore inflamed mouth or mouth ulcers, constipation, or IBS (i.e. colitis), plus it can also been given as a liquid meal given orally via syringe as it is highly nutritional (oral liquid feeding) for convalescing during illness when not eating solids.
CONVALESCING ..can been given as a liquid meal given orally via syringe as it is highly nutritional (oral liquid feeding) for convalescing during illness when not eating solids or not eating very well. ~ Add a small amount of powder to the mix to enough to make a runny liquid mix, if you put too much of the powder it will become thick and gluggy, if this happens you will need to add more liquid to it. Can add crushed vitamins and herbal medicines to this as well. OPTIONS: Oral dose in syringe or add to meals three times a day or more to maintain normal health again, then can stop or reduce frequencies.

I believe that the Hampl homeopathic remedies (Lepto detox, Reno-aid and Liver detox formula) made a significant contribution to my dog's recovery from leptosporosis and the ensuring kidney and liver failure she experienced. The vets allowed me to administer the drops to her when she was acutely ill, and the vet nurses continued the drops when she was in hospital. The vets regard her recovery as extremely increadible, and we put this down to the homeopathics medicines. I am very grateful to have access to such good remedies. My dog is now almost completely recovered after being on death's door. I am also very grateful for how helpful the Hampl staff were during this crisis.
