A Closer Look at a Dog Bite...

A Closer Look at a Dog Bite...

I have a 67-year-old friend who got deep puncture wounds from a dog bite. I wrote about it in a previous post, and shared some pictures. How serious are dog bites? Well, he has gone down some horrible rabbit hole of an experience.

The bite happened at 5 pm at the end of March. The police called him at 7 pm and he called me at 9pm, too tired to think of going to the doctor's till the next day. I was able to convince him to seek care immediately, as the saliva from animal bites can cause cellulitis and blood poisoning. His bite happened while on a bicycle, slowly navigating past a group of young people. The dog was not on a leash, somehow he had escaped or been let out of his fenced yard. As my friend slowly made his way by a group of young people, the young man, son of the owner, assured him it was a 'friendly dog'. Slowly, the older dog made his way to my friend's bicycle, sort of like an old curious dog, and then he chomped down on my friend's ankle. The dog had bitten a woman on the arm who was walking by a few years ago, and had picked up her small dog to keep him safe. She reported it to the police. Whether they wrote a report is questionable. Since the owner told my friend State Farm has paid 3 claims in 10 years, I am wondering how many were regarding dog bites from this animal?

The hospital gave my friend Doxycline and Cleocin (Clindamycin). Upon reading about Cleocin, (the patient ratings and side effects which are horrible-including death), and because my friend is very sensitive to many medications, the following day when seeing his own doctor, he was put on Septra DS or Bactrim. It had a worse rating than Cleocin. One of the side effects of both is death, I believe. Several days later, the bite wasn't healing. Cellulitis set in. It's where there's an infection deep in the tissues. Then it formed an abscess and needed lancing. My friend was put on yet another antibiotic. Ceftin.

 Antibiotics set people up for yeast infections and urinary tract infections, as they imbalance the good and bad bacteria in the digestive tract, and create an acid environment conducive to the growth of yeast and fungus.  Pro...biotics help build back the good bacteria. Some doctors encourage their patients to eat yogurt. Fermented veggies are also good for their probiotics or good flora.

3-4 weeks of this soreness, using crutches at first, swelling and bruising, not being able to sleep except briefly, in one position, etc., he was diagnosed with a Urinary Tract Infection.  The Kaiser Doc put him on Cipro. Two doses of that, and he woke in pain, his skin burning, etc. Then purplish rash appeared on one hip, down the leg, and in some pretty private, sensitive parts....
Think ...all of them. Shingles can be triggered by Cipro. They can also be triggered by injury, trauma and stress. Just knock the immune system down far enough, or be fighting some kind of disease or cancer, and Shingles can be the beacon of caution and warning. Shingles in the eyes is very serious, and in the brain, can cause death. They also can re-emerge... forever.

There has been a new phenomena after Chickenpox vaccines, as adults are getting Shingles at an alarming rate, and even kids are getting it. The virus sheds and is quite contagious. It seems the new problem of Shingles outbreaks for young and old that has been caused by the Pharmaceutical marketing of the Chickenpox vaccine, also make them money in selling the idea of getting Shingles vaccines (some docs say they're useless, and stats show about a 51% effective rate. It's the adjuvants, the MSG and aborted fetal tissue used to grow the ingredient needed that introduces foreign proteins to each poor fool that takes it, that is causing havoc. And of course, there are many cases of people getting Shingles from the vaccine. Foreign proteins set up autoimmune diseases and cancer, by the way. Read some of the forums on Shingles to get an idea of the pain, joint pain, etc., involved. Like anything else, when the immune system is hammered, a person is susceptible to virus's, bacteria, etc.

Now, the Health Dept. was faxed the dog bite info the following morning from the Hospital ER room. The dog was not picked up for the State-mandated 10-day observation by the Police Dept., in concert with the Animal Control Officer. The next morning, the female owner reported the dog had been 'run over'. Not one agency verified that report, or took responsibility to make sure it was verified, and besides the initial Police phone call at 7, and a few afterwards after I contacted Chief Conner, no agency spoke to my friend until a week had passed, and only because I contacted the Animal Control Officer, the Police, and later, the Health Dept. official. The dog should have been dug up if indeed it was dead. A Vet with a mask and goggles for protection has to remove the head as a sample and send it in so the brain is tested for Rabies. A Rabies shot is not fail safe, and sometimes actually infects an animal. This dog admittedly by the owner, ran wild, despite Leash Laws.

Since Rabies takes 1-3 months, and in one case up to 7 years to surface in the victim, it has been a cruel and unusual punishment to have negligent public agencies that had to be pushed to do their job, and that failed to protect and ensure my friend for his peace of mind, that he does not have a possibility of Rabies. When the wound starts itching, or he drives himself to a hospital for shooting pain for possible nerve damage, there are questions not put to rest.

The Police Officer told my friend he'd have to ask permission of the owner to send the dog's head in, and pay the $100 himself. His Chief didn't agree the bite victim would have to pay for this test, but he also didn't move ahead with the proper agencies to verify the dog's death for my friend's health and safety and mental suffering, or for the next victim, should the dog still be alive, but only hidden.

The Health Dept. official told my friend he considered the bite a minor risk of Rabies-a week later, and the budget wouldn't pay for it, but my friend could, at $100-1000. My friend didn't know the dog even was recorded as having a Rabies vaccine for a week after the bite. The young man who told him the dog was friendly, also told him the dog had his Rabies vaccine. Even that has not been verified by the Vet reportedly involved, as far as I know.

The Animal Control Officer and Policeman involved, both asked my friend if he wanted them to write up a Citation, though the ORS protocol is clear. The next victim wouldn't appreciate them skating their Civil and Criminal responsibilities, would they, asking a Bite Victim to direct their legal protocols? Not until I told the Animal Control Officer that I was writing this up on a personal blog and sent him the bite pictures did he write up the Citations. It makes one wonder what we are paying for, with our taxes. I emailed the AC Officer that it sounded like Fraud to me--collecting paychecks, but not following protocols for public protection.

Rabies symptoms can take 1-3 months, or up to 7 years to surface, as shared. There have also been cases where entire packs of dogs being trained with coyotes or animals outside of their area had to be put down after becoming infected with Rabies, despite them having Rabies shots prior to the exercise. This suggests that there are variants of  Rabies.

Here is some information to help address these Shingles:

(A Chiropractor wrote that intravenous Vitamin C helped almost immediately. My friend is trying the Probiotic, B Complex, Vitamin C w/ bioflavanoids and Nutriferon route.) He was also given an anti-viral.

Shingles Testimonial:

Pat Stemmed says, "I take all the nutrients daily, but when I came down with a case of shingles, I doubled all the supplements that help supply nerves: B Complex, Lecithin, and Calcium/Magnesium.  I did this for 2-3 days and also made a cream to use topically from Herbal Blend Multi-Cream mixed with the oil from Vita-E capsules.  " She pricked them with a pin and squeezed the oil out. She said she had an area about the size of a grapefruit on her upper back and it was gone in about 10 days
Testimony on Shingles
 I first got shingles when I was pregnant with my first child 5 years ago. It broke out on my right thigh and right arm. Very painful. The Dr.  told me that it is a form of the herpes virus like a cold sore, etc. I was told that stress brings it out and when I find myself in unusually high stress I have had tendencies to breakouts. B-Complex is awesome for this and so is Cal-Mag. I regularly take Vita-Lea, soy protein, Sustained Release-C, Alfalfa, and Optiflora.   I haven't had an outbreak in quite sometime!

HealthOne, Anna Hammons  Date: 12/22/99 11:06:33 AM CentralFrom:Sue@T... (Susan L Holdren)    Obviously the Basics and Protein are important, but the real "miracle worker" is the B-Complex.  Shingles is a virus (the same one that causes Chicken Pox in young children) and it causes painful itching along certain nerve tracks. In very simplified terms, the B Complex helps the nerves to heal and resist the "over-reaction" caused by the virus. It is important that the person continue to supplement with B-Complex in order to prevent recurrence of the shingles. This has worked for my aunt who would get shingles every year. She has not had them for 8 years now - she's 85. Each person is different, so "how many?" is a difficult question to answer. It would probably be a good idea to start with 4 a day (evenly spaced) and increase until a level of maximum improvement is found. (I take 12 - 16 on high stress days.) Good luck. Sue

Here are nutrients that can greatly speed the healing of Shingles, and help avoid a recurrence:


   1. VITAMIN C: immune support; speeds up healing
   2. B COMPLEX: provides nutrients needed for healing the nerve damage
   3. ZINC: needed for healing of connective tissue
   4. NUTRIFERON: Powerful stimulation of body’s own interferon production.
   5. VITAMIN E + SELENIUM: immune support; speeds up healing
   6. CAROTOMAX: immune support; heals epithelial tissue
   7. COQHEART: increases healing energy
   8. OPTIFLORA: strengthens immune system; reduce toxin load
   9. GARLIC: for the immune system
  10. DTX: reduce toxin load

Here are nutrients and herb tea that greatly speed the healing of Urinary Tract Infections, (UTI's), also known as Bladder Infections and that can become Kidney Infections if not healed soon enough.
Marshmallow tea helps cut the pain quickly, unlike the nasty orange urine-producing Western Medicine ---Pyridium. I should know about this, as before I was diagnosed with Endocervical Cancer in 2004, I had recurring UTI's, especially after sexual activity. At the same time, I was fighting recurrent Sinus Infections. Both urinary tract infections and sinus infections are all symptoms of Candida. See nutrients to address that, below. Grapefruit Seed Extract should be added to that list. It is a powerful healer. Nature's antibiotics rarely have side effects, or list DEATH as one of the side effects. Just food for thought....

*Note: The DNA of Candida is cancer. Dr. Simoncini, an Italian Oncologist treats his patients with Bicarbonate of Soda, as it's a fungus problem, which speaks to a PH problem. Sunlight, exercise and meditation and deep breathing all help fight cancer. We all have Candida, but it has to be balanced. Antibiotics and steroids, etc. kill the good gut bacteria and allow the bad bacteria to grow wild. When the Candida morphs to the Fungal form, it goes thru the gut walls with its roots, and particles or molecules of proteins from the food we eat, go into the body, causing food allergies. We in America have been a gluten-based society. However, even stopping gluten may not be the whole answer, if the Candida is not addressed. One of the nutrients that prevent the morphing of Candida from a yeast or bacteria to a fungus, is BIOTIN. This ingredient is in Shaklee's Vita Lea multi-vitamin, 100%, and is in a BIO-AVAILABLE form. Many people waste their money and time with nutrients that just are not usable by the body. Shaklee coats their Vita Lea with Folic Acid. This opens up in the stomach, instead of being bound up in some capsule. 

If people will listen, this little 50+ yr. old company holds some important product information that can save or extend their lives, and bring vigorous health. Our food should be our medicine, but most are not eating well, or in balance. Supplements help bridge the gaps. I don't use it and recommend it for any small profit involved. My website has a lot of product information.

***Ask for the Natural Options for Cancer Resource List/See Page 15 of this document.
You don’t necessarily need all of the above. Ask for help for a personalized list of nutrients. Vitalizer and Non-GMO Soy Protein and Nutriferon is a great place to start, as is baking soda and maple syrup or molasses in water upon waking, Turmeric tea, etc. There are many success stories for aiding in the healing and/or remission of cancer using holistic methods.. You read them and judge for yourself. Tweak your diet to alkaline, juice for optimal nutrients w/ minimal digestive energy needed, green smoothies and organics. A necessity is Optiflora. Nutriferon at 4-6 a night with an extra dose of protein has been used to erase all evidence of pancreatic cancer. Research Hulda Clark, Bryzinski, Dr. Revici, Dr. Simoncini, Dr. Lorraine Day, Dr. Gonzales. Western Medicine obviously doesn’t have all, or many times, any answers. Critical thinking, or thinking for yourself can save your life. One man whose doctor almost killed him with malpractice for his heart issues, wrote the book :I Fired My Doctor and Saved My Life. Cancer treatment fraud is as plentiful as those pink ribbons. It’s a profitable business.
