INTERNAL Uses

If in doubt, consult a veterinarian

  • GSE proves to be an excellent and safe remedy for internal diseases caused by bacteria, viruses, parasites/worms or fungi.

  • The animals intestinal flora (Essential to its immune system) is often damaged by antibiotics, but GSE has been shown to be less damaging - Some animal owners give a preventative dose on a regular basis. In acute cases, the dosage can be increased dramatically without ill effects, but it is wise to increase the dosage frequency rather than increase the size of the dose by more than 2 or 3 times.
