Colloidal Silver Works as a Natural Antibiotic, Antiviral, and Antifungal
Every feline's natural medicine chest and cat rescue should include colloidal silver
Colloidal Silver is an amazing product with many good qualities as a natural medicine for cats (and dogs & humans too!). Cat rescues could save a lot of precious donation money by using Colloidal Silver in place of trips to the veterinarians and using messy, bad tasting antibiotics* :
- non-toxic, will not damage organs
- no side effects when used as directed
- works as an antibiotic, anti-viral, and anti-fungal
- does not kill off friendly gut bacteria, like antibiotics do
- helps wounds heal faster with oral and external application (by dabbing on with a cotton square)
- nearly tasteless and odorless, which works well for using with cats (and dogs too!)
These are some conditions I have used it for with cats (mostly rescue and foster cats that were sick):
- urinary tract infections
- upper respiratory infections
- Feline Leukemia (FeLV) and Feline Herpes
Colloidal Silver can be added to your cat's food and mixed in. I have never had a cat turn down their food due to the Colloidal Silver being added. If your cat is not eating, and you are feeding via a dropper or giving liquid supplements, Colloidal Silver can be added to the mix. For eye infections, it can be used to wipe the eyes clean with a cotton square, and it will not burn the eyes.
You could also use this as a daily immune system protector/preventative for cats with FeLV and FIV, or any other immune system dysfunction, as these cats are at a higher risk for other bacterial and viral infections. According to the EPA, a human may safely ingest 178,850 servings of this particular brand over a 70-year period. (The EPA does not test the product on cats, so this is just a comparison reference as to how safe it is to ingest daily.) Holistic animal practitioners and veterinarians use and recommend Colloidal Silver. Personally, I don't like to use the same product every single day forever. I believe (as do many holistic practitioners--animal and human) it is best to cycle supplements so the body does not become accustomed to something and no longer benefit from it. If you were to use it daily in this scenario, my recommendation is to use it three weeks on, and one week off.
Colloidal Silver is great to have on hand for yourself as well
Anytime I've gotten a bit run down with too little sleep, I will start to get a sore throat. I squirt two dropper fulls right onto the back of my throat. This one-time dose almost always stops the sore throat in its tracks. On occasion, I will need to take a second dose a few hours later.
My favorite, recommended brand
The brand I recommend and have used for years is Sovereign Silver's Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol. It contains 98% positively charged silver in pharmaceutical-grade purified water, and nothing else. Some brands contain salts, proteins, compounds or stabilizers and may or may not claim to contain these ingredients. These added ingredients affect silver's safety and efficacy.
A silver's molecular particle size determines the absorption rate by the body. Sovereign Silver's particle size is highly absorbed at 0.8mm, an industry low. With this low particle size, it's 10 ppm (parts per million) is more effective than other brands containing up to 500 ppm. So, don't be fooled by the higher ppm's of other brands.

*I am not prescribing colloidal silver in place of antibiotics in extremely ill cases for cat rescues. But simply suggesting giving it a try for common upper respiratory infections and supporting cats with weakened immune systems. You will be pleasantly surprised.
