Colloidal Silver: Natural Support for Our Four-Legged Friends!🐴

Colloidal silver has proven to be a versatile and effective natural remedy in equine medicine. With its antimicrobial effect, it can be a valuable addition to conventional animal health care. Here are 20 areas of application and our own positive experiences:

  1. Eye discharge & conjunctivitis: Colloidal silver can help with eye problems such as conjunctivitis by relieving inflammation and fighting bacterial infections.

  2. Hoof problems: It can be applied to hoof abscesses or hoof ulcers to combat infections and support healing.

  3. Skin problems: Colloidal silver can be applied to skin irritations, itching, and eczema to provide relief.

  4. Wounds and cuts: It can be used for cleaning and disinfecting wounds and cuts.

  5. Mud fever: Colloidal silver can promote healing and reduce inflammation in cases of mud fever.

  6. Insect bites: It can be applied to insect bites to alleviate itching and inflammation.

  7. Respiratory infections: Colloidal silver can be inhaled or taken orally to treat respiratory infections.

  8. Gastrointestinal problems: It can be used as a supportive treatment for gastrointestinal issues like diarrhea.

  9. Arthritis: Colloidal silver can be applied to affected joints to reduce inflammation.

  10. Urinary tract infections: It can be used to support treatment of urinary tract infections.

  11. Ear infections: For cleaning and disinfecting the outer ear in cases of ear infections.

  12. Thrush: It can be used to disinfect areas affected by thrush.

  13. Summer eczema: Colloidal silver can help in alleviating symptoms of summer eczema.

  14. Dental problems: It can be used for oral care and in cases of gum inflammation.

  15. Ticks and fleas: Colloidal silver can be used as a natural repellent for ticks and fleas.

  16. Post-operative care: For wound cleaning after surgical procedures.

  17. Boosting the immune system: It can be used regularly to support the immune system.

  18. Laminitis: Colloidal silver can reduce inflammation in cases of laminitis.

  19. Warts: It can help in the treatment of warts.

  20. Calming: It can be used to calm stressed horses.

The ideal ppm (parts per million) concentration of colloidal silver can vary depending on the application. For external applications, a concentration of 5 to 10 ppm is often sufficient, while a lower concentration of 1 to 5 ppm is recommended for internal applications. From experience, for example, we apply 25ppm colloidal silver once to twice daily for conjunctivitis or heavy discharge or red inflamed eyes.


Compared to conventional medications, colloidal silver offers the advantage of having fewer side effects and acts antimicrobially without promoting resistance. It is gentler on the digestive tract and can serve as part of a holistic animal health care approach.
