Lumpy Jaw in Jersey Cow Story
Photos: Right after lump fell off, a month later and all better.
SP in WA shares, " Hello! I just wanted to take the time to THANK YOU for your products!! I have used your products for many, many years and always have been very pleased. This past December though, these products really came through for us. Our almost three year old Jersey cow got a bump on the side of her face. I put Wounderful on it but not very consistently. Then, we went away for Christmas and when we came back the bump took over the whole left side of her face. It was pushing up her eye even. We had the vet come out and they said it was Lumpy Jaw and that it was in the bone. They said the only way they could treat it was give her iodine treatments for at least 7-8 weeks and that wouldn't make it go away, it was just hopefully bring the swelling down but her jaw would be forever disfigured, which would then make it difficult for her to eat. They said most farmers cull the animal as they don't live very long. We have always been very natural on our farm and they are definitely more pets than regular farm animals, I couldn't put her through that torture. They would have to do the treatments in her neck and I knew that would put more stress on her and she wouldn't heal with all that stress. She is also nursing a calf so she didn't need any extra stress. So, I got out the Wounderful and added several essential oils, and colloidal silver and made a mix 2-3 times a day and rubbed it all over the bump. I also put Probiotics in her free minerals, along with kelp, MMune, and HerBiotic and she ate those up. Within a week of doing this everyday, the bump was down to the size of a golf ball. It was still very hard and was getting real tight. Then, after almost two weeks, it started to open up. An amazing amount of stuff starting flowing out so I just kept putting my mixture on after I would push out as much as she would let me. We decided we might need some help getting the rest of it out but on the day we did, we went out and the whole thing had fallen off! So, we kept putting more of the mixture on. It is now down to the smallest little spot, the hair has grown back in, and I only put the Wounderful on about 5 times a week. There is still infection slowly coming out and it pulls it out best when I put the Wounderful on but it is a very small amount. We have heard that bone infections take a very long time to recover from so we know she still has a ways to go. I talked to one farmer that her cow had lumpy jaw and she said she never has heard of it coming out that way. "W", our cow, doesn't look like she will have much of a deformity except where that small little indentation is but she has never stopped eating or chewing her cud. She has kept up with milking and looks great. I tried to write all of this on facebook and share pictures but it wouldn't let me. We are so incredibly THANKFUL to you though and wanted to share. We have also used Wounderful on one of our barn cats who got in a fight and had a terrible wound...it was gone within a few days! Amazing stuff!!!! Thank you!! SP
