When growing up with my Grandmother, they had very little income. We ate off the land for our food and medicine. I loved them dearly and wanted to be so much like them. They could not afford Vets so too the fields we would go. This is a couple recipes I seen them do for our animals, it worked for them , I hope it does for some of you.
For heaves in horses
1 Tbsp. raw linseed oil daily. Mix in feed or put on horse’s tongue.
For sick chickens
When chickens just lay around and hang their heads, have diarrhea and are sick:
Chopped poke root up fine and put 1/4 cup of the chopped poke root in 2 quarts of water.
Make sure that the sick chickens get a drink of this. Put it there for your healthy
chickens also, it will help prevent the virus in them.
