Colloidal Silver for Children and Pets – Dosage

Colloidal Silver for Children and PetsMany people ask about the proper dosage of Colloidal Silver for children and pets. A good rule of thumb to follow is 1/4 teaspoon per 10 pounds of body weight. This is considered a Therapeutic Dose and can be repeated several times per day or more as needed.

Colloidal silver also works well topically on children and animals. Try using it on diaper rash, hot spots or any other skin conditions that need relief. Alternatively for topical needs, Mountain Well-Being’s Soothing Silver Gel is one of the safest and most effective skin first aids gels in existence.

Has colloidal silver benefited your child or pet? If so, please share how.

    My dog had terrible hot spots in the groin area. He was miserable and constantly chewed himself so it spread between his legs, crept up his buttocks and on and around the tail. I mixed equal parts colloidal silver and Echinacea-goldenseal in liquid form into an aloe gel base and applied it a couple of times a day to the sore areas. Within 2 to 3 days, the skin became pink and smooth again. I repeated this treatment whenever it flared up. I call it the “Big guns of healing.”

    What kind of dose do you give if your dog seems he is on his death bed. We can longer afford to continue to take him to the vet. I just emailed the vet and am awaiting a response to see if they can tell me something with the way he is recovering from his surgery.

    He had surgery on 9th and they found a mass that had wrapped around his kidney etc. He was prescribed medication for UTI after surgery and other antiobiotic like Clavamox and Baytril. He seemed to be doing better as the days progressed and now his antibiotic ended and he just taking pain pills. The appetite stimulant was helping and now it does nothing the past couple of days.

    I started to give collodial sivler last night (several tablespoons at least). It was your brand. We are buying more bottles today of the same brand. He won’t get up to let me take him for a walk to pee. But his head does seem at least a bit perkier today. How much collodial silver is too much? We don’t really have any options left but to try out best to treat him with remedies at home. We have already spent $3,000 and are tapped out. He is an older beagle mix.

      Hi Bridget,
      To answer your question about using colloidal silver with dogs, I’ve successfully used colloidal silver on my dogs on many occasions for many different reasons. I don’t think you can give a dog too much, and when my dog was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor, I began giving him a liberal amount of colloidal silver twice a day with his food. It helped him tremendously! A therapeutic dose for an animal (or child) is considered to be ¼ teaspoon per 10 pounds of body weight. However, I was giving my dog much more than this amount. I also gave him multiple doses per day. I hope this helps you!
      Be well,

        Hi Jonathan, I was wondering if my dog is currently on Enrofloxacin antibiotic for a UTI and I want to supplement with Colloidal Silver, would you still advise 1/4 teaspoon per 10 lbs bodyweight?

        Thank you so much.

          Hi Julia,
          Yes, I would still recommend that dosage even though your dog is taking conventional antibiotics. There has been a study that showed taking colloidal silver along with a conventional antibiotic was much more effective than just taking the antibiotic by itself. And for children and pets, the therapeutic dosage is considered to be 1/4 teaspoon per 10 pounds of body weight. Hope this helps you.
          Be well, Jonathan

    What is the difference in dosage for different ppm?

    The current bottle I have says 15 ppm. So how much should I give?

    My partner just called from the health food store and said he purchased your brand – one bottle for 250 ppm and one for 500 ppm

      Hi Bridget,
      To answer your question about ppm (parts per million), any colloidal silver in the hundreds of ppm range (i.e.: 250ppm – 5000ppm) is almost always going to be what’s known as a mild silver protein (MSP) and this type of silver supplement is inferior to electrically generated colloidal silver. The way you can test for MSP is to shake the bottle, and if foam persists, then you know there is a protein added. The particles of silver in MSP are so large that they would sink without the flotation assistance from the protein. But this protein coats the surface of the silver particles, keeping them from coming into contact with what they’re supposed to be targeting. So, you’re much better off with a colloidal silver that’s produced using electrolysis and in the 10-20ppm range.
      Take care,

    Wow, you just answered my question with the ppm. So dosage would be 1/4 tsp per 10 pounds? Can I give this daily as a supplement or immune system booster? Or would that not be good since it is considered an antibiotic. My dogs do eat raw food, so probiotic is always there. Thanks! mari

      Hi Mari,
      Yes, 1/4 teaspoon per 10 pounds of body weight is considered to be a therapeutic dose for a small child or pet. You can choose to use colloidal only when needed, or take some each day as a preventative. It’s a personal preference. I use it daily as a preventative during the cold and flu season, when everyone around seems to be sick, but the rest of the year I take it only as needed. It’s always best to separate colloidal silver from probiotics as much as possible, because the silver could cancel out some of the benefits of probiotics if taken at the same time. Colloidal silver is always absorbed better straight without mixing with food or beverage.
      Be well,
