Dog Cramps:

Stop the Pain Now

People ask, "Can dogs get muscle cramps?" Yes, our four legged friends get dog cramps.

Dog Leg Cramps

I will never forget the first time I saw Tiger, our 9 year old 3/4 German Shepherd / 1/4 Wolf walking with her leg dragging as if it was paralyzed. By the time I got to her, she was back walking again looking at me as if to say, 'I'm fine."

It was not till years later that I discovered how to not only make the cramps go away, but how to prevent cramps and dog arthritis from happening. This treatment is so good, it has only failed to work in one instance in all the German Shepherds we have treated using the Water Cures Pet Protocol.

People have suggested that we sell our treatments for dogs, cats and other mammals. In addition to the Water Cures, we have provided out of the glass holistic and natural treatments for animals as big as horses. As a matter of fact, in our network, we even have a horse chiropractor. He is out of the Allentown Pennsylvania area.

As far as money an charging for this treatment, we decided to take a different path. We are giving this information for free. We especially love to hear of stories of pets that were on hospice care and rebounded to enjoy another year or three of quality of life.

We gladly accept donations to help keep the website running. If you have not noticed, there are no ads, no blinking lights and no commercialism on this site. The information is provided for by voluntary donations from people like you.

Oh yea, this will save you quite bit on the vet bill as well. And we are not concerned about making our veterinarian friends second homeless by taking work from them.

Why Do They Get Those Doggone Leg Cramps

It is not uncommon for dogs to have leg spasms and cramps. The problem we have, since they cannot talk and since they often suffer in silence, we do not know what they are going through.

The common wisdom is that the reason dogs get cramps is the same reason we get cramps. If you have read the section on the different types of cramps, we showed the commonalities.

The one underlying commonality, fluid and electrolyte imbalance. Correct this and not only will you stop the cramp, it is likely they will be prevented.

It should be noted that there are other reasons for dogs to have leg difficulties. Sometimes these can be neurological problems. The good news, there are holistic natural ways to treat these too. Both with unprocessed salt and water as well as out of the glass natural ways to heal them.

Dog Cramps: How Can You Know?

Whether it be a neurological disease, injury or seizure, many of the pet owners who tried the water cures protocol for pets found that it worked. In some cases, the benefits were noticed in a day. Sometimes within a week. In all but one instance, there has been improvement.

If it does not work, a visit to the vet may be necessary.

The most common indicators are...


*No longer runs

*Walking slower than normal

*Unresponsive, will no longer play

*Vocalization of pain when moving

*Sraining to get up, slow to lay down

*The affected limb is painful to the touch

What Causes Leg Cramps In Dogs?

Like humans, dogs need fluids and they also need electrolytes. When they do not get them, they are at greater risk for dis-ease. When they get the needed electrolytes, they move toward the healthy that their bodies are meant to be.

Our Grandparents Knew About Mixing Hydration and Eating!

It is amazing how so many things that are new to us were common knowledge in the past. One basic practice of the Water Cures protocol is to drink at least 30-45 minutes before and 2 1/2 hours after a meal. This is not a new thought however. Notice what a magazine from 1925 had to say...

"Drink plenty of water two hours after each meal; drink none just before eating; and a small quantity if any at meal time. Do not take a bath until two hours after eating a meal, nor closer than one hour before eating. Drink a full glass of water both before and after the bath." (Golden Age, Sept. 9, 1925, pp. 784-785)

The Great Salt Debate
Here is the Science

We are not promoting increased salt intake. We are suggesting taking salt in amounts appropriate to your bodies needs, based on water needs. Our needs are not one size fits all.

Note: Do you have CHF or Kidney Disease? Then.....

There is more to Water Cures than just salt and water. Diet, 50 to 80% raw food is best and exercise play an important part. And we believe the science is important too. Below is some of the research we found as to why Water Cures is the solution for better health.

Water Cures is not for Everyone

Listen to your body. Do not use this if you are under a doctors care. Do not stop taking medications without consulting your doctor. If you are on medications, consult your doctor if you start the Water Cures Protocol as it may change your needs.

Timmy is His Old Self Again

As Timmy started slowing down with old age, I just accepted it. Then I heard about the water cures from a hydration coach that was helping out my family. I found out that the water cures also works for dogs.

Not only does it work, it worked miracles. Timmy is playing, jumping and almost like a young dog again. The transformation in him is remarkable.

Heal Your Headache It Worked For Me

Hi, my name is Sharon. The webmaster of this site is my nurse, my personal water coach and my husband.

As this site was first being built, I had a headache and as usual took an Ibuprofen. Impatient for it to start working, I decided to try the Water Cures. I took a pinch of salt and a glass of water. Then I took a second pinch of salt and another glass of water. My headache was gone in less than 5 minutes.

From my personal experience, it usually takes 30 to 45 minutes for Ibuprofen to work. Some have found it takes ibuprofen 24 minutes to start working.

Yet on the Water Cures protocol, my headache was gone in 5 minutes.

Its simple: give your body what it needs and your body will give you what you need, the ability to feel great.

Water Cures was the solution for the elimination of my headache. It is what I will use from now on.

Why not give it a try yourself.

Have you tried the Water Cures Yet? Then why not...
