From what he described, it did not sound good! His animal was bloated and passing blood in its urine. Apparently, the Veterinarian was able to get a sample of blood on the animal and also found that it had an elevated blood sugar level.
My first impression was that this animal was probably going to die because he was feeding it a normal diet that did not include anything but simple plant sugars, so for it to have an elevated blood sugar it probably meant that its pancreas was shutting down.
After I heard that the urinalysis revealed three different organisms including beta-hemolytic strep, I suspected that the strep was hemolyzing or destroying its red blood cells which were being passed through the kidneys and turning the urine dark.
I suggested to him that he give Colloidal Silver a try and told him how I would give it so as to let him draw his own conclusions as to how he would want to give it.
The gentleman gave me permission to reprint our conversations regarding his Chipmunk. So, here is our conversations:
April 2, 2018
I can't tell you what to do regarding your chipmunk, because I'm not a Veterinarian.
What I can tell you is what I would do, and let you draw your own conclusions.
I can also cite some studies that have been done with Colloidal Silver so that you have information and findings that have been collected from research. Big Pharmaceutical Companies here in the United States have a stranglehold on what research gets funded and what doesn't. Only the research that supports patented medications that can produce a profit are the ones that usually get the funds!
Most of the time,you have to go outside the United States to find any credible studies about Colloidal Silver. But, here's one that was conducted in the Pathology Dept. of West Virginia University:
Colloidal Silver Kills 49 Different Strains of Antibiotic-Resistant Superbugs!
“In this clinical study titled “The Antimicrobial Efficacy of Silver on Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria Isolated From Burn Wounds,” conducted by researchers at the Department of Pathology at West Virginia University, and published in the International Wound Journal in October 2012, a total of 49 different antibiotic-resistant bacteria were isolated from burn wounds and tested against silver. These deadly, drug-resistant pathogens included Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium, Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, multi-drug-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa, multi-drug-resistant Vibrio sp, drug-resistant Klebsiella pneumonia, drug-resistant Escherichia coli, multi-drug-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii and 42 others. After exposing these drug-resistant pathogens to antimicrobial silver the researchers concluded, “…all forty-nine antibiotic-resistant bacteria showed susceptibility to the antimicrobial activity of silver…”
The problem is, even when these studies get published in Journals they stay buried there because Big Pharmaceutical companies are not interested in promoting or producing things they cannot patent!
If the Chipmunk is doing fine on Colloidal Silver, I would keep doing what you are doing and have him retested in a month. If he still tested positive for anything, I would add an antibiotic to the mix. Colloidal Silver has been found to work in synergy with most prescription medications.
This is excellent! Exactly the info I needed!
I suspected as much, that at the end of the day it seems that colloidal silver, (despite its obvious curative characteristics,) is being put aside in favor of antibiotic medications, ( produced of course by the big corporations,) so that the name of the game is big profit!
And, on top of that, I believe colloidal silver can and will kill the bacteria isolated in the urine!
Thank-you again for the info! I am aware that you are not a Veterinarian, nevertheless your advice I believe is true and a much healthier way to go with my Chip!
Moreover, it is significant that my own Vet has specifically suggested to me to check with you about a further course of action, stating clearly that he also values the quality of your opinion as an expert on squirrels. He was really surprised about the curative effect of silver (they probably uses only antibiotics in cases like this,) and his advice is basically the same as yours, but I wanted to know your opinion because it's very important to me!
Incidentally, how long can I give him colloidal silver in water? Are there any time limitations in your experience, side effects?
Thanks again, and best!
I put a few drops of Colloidal Silver in all of my squirrels water bowls and lick-tube bottles on a regular basis. It keeps bacteria and algae from growing in the water. Studies have shown that silver is excreted from the body in the same way as other trace metals such as iron, magnesium, selenium, etc. They are excreted, through the urine, sweat,and the gut.
There are no know allergic reactions or tolerance resistance associated with colloidal silver. The only known side-effect is a condition called “Argeria,” which is a silver/blue coloration to the skin that could occur from drinking more colloidal silver than the body can excrete. In other words, this only can happen if someone massively overdosed on it, ( and I'm talking gallons of it over an extended period of time!)
Hi! According to your instructions, I had his urine analyzed, it was negative regarding calcium oxalate crystals (so no stones). That's the good news!
The bad news is that they also did a bacterial analysis of the urine. They found 3 different organisms, :Staphylococus aureus, Enterococcus, and beta-hemolytic Streptoccus (10⁵ CFU/ml).
The urine sample was collected on the 5th of this month, (April,) and I started giving him colloidal silver on 3rd of April up until today, ( April 12,) a total of 9 days.
Do you think I should continue to give him silver? Can it even kill those bacteria? Or, should I go back to giving antibiotics? He had two courses of antibiotics. The first was Feb 13 to 27 and the second March 18 to 31. Both were unsuccessful.
The Vet suggested that I ask you for a further course of action, ( by the way,he was surprised about silver as a treatment!)
The chippie seems better since starting the silver, no more blood in urine, he's no longer puffed and is eating normally.
So, what do I do,Silver or antibiotics?
As I had said before, if the Chipmunk is doing fine on Colloidal Silver, I would keep doing what you are doing and have him retested in a month. If he still tested positive for anything, I would add an antibiotic to the mix. Colloidal Silver has been found to work in synergy with other medications.

I just wanted to inform you that my little furry friend is fully OK, he's completely recovered, even sugar levels are normal , all thanks to the amazing properties of the silver!
All this, much to my Vets disbelief! His prognosis was a quick and painful death, fortunately, he was completely!wrong!
I do hope he'll prescribe silver as future remedy to other patients but I'm not sure of that, he's not really convinced, (Vet school apparently does not take silver seriously on account that only prescription medications are recommended as we previously discussed).
I wanted to thank you again for you help, it was literally a lifesaver!
God bless you and your family!
If anyone reading this has a physical problem with one of their animals or even for themselves and would like to try Colloidal Silver please contact me at SquirrelNutrition@Yahoo.com.
You can buy Colloidal Silver at any Health Food Store, but be prepared for sticker shock! Most places charge $20.00 to $30.00 for 4 ounces. We sell 4 ounces for $6.95 with postage it is an even $10.00.
