Ask Utopia Silver

German Shepherd

My beautiful 5 yr old German shepherd Star has been diagnosed with conjunctivitis and pannus (a progressive tissue growth over her corneas that can lead to blindness). The Vet prescribed an antibiotic and steroid combo and something called Cyclosporine  2% in corn oil. He said that she would have to take these things for the rest of her life. I am a strong believer in alternative medicine and I believe that there is something with less risk. Can your colloidal silver product be used topically in the eyes? What color is it? Do you know of any person or veterinarian who has used this product for this kind of problem?

Thank you very much for your reply.

Hi Melody,
We have both particle silver (Advanced Colloidal Silver) which is dark brown with a greenish undertone and ionic silver which is virtually clear. Light reflects off particles giving them color but ions do not reflect light.
I use colloidal silver for the eyes of my pets and for myself, but you will seldom find a vet who will endorse using silver; it simply isn’t mainstream ‘approved’. You may want to look at IP-6 for the growth over the cornea.

You are appreciated in Utopia.
