If you want to learn what titre testing is then see blogs below or have a look at my website

It basically determines whether your companion has antibodies to Parvovirus and the other viral diseases for which he is offered vaccines. If he has he does not need vaccinating again.

Turmeric a wonderful herb

Curcuma longa

It can be applied to wounds mixed as a paste - 50gm in 250ml hot water, cooled and then applied externally

Studies have shown that black pepper improves the absorption of turmeric in the intestine and can be used to reduce the dosage needed (see Golden Paste Recipe for more advice and how to make the paste) Of course it may be partly synergy between two herbs which we often use to our advantage in herbal medicine

You can use this to make your own Golden Paste for even better affects See Recipe Page on
