Hi Pals, I've also been reading GPDD about Shilintong, so good to hear that it worked for your piggie, too. They write in GPDD about stones getting smaller in x-rays :-o. As Pölö and FAti also seem to have sludge every now and then, I'd be interested to know how on earth do I get this powder to Finland...

Did you try to place an order on the website and they won't ship to Finland?

It's incredible! Angel has been showing incredible improvement. Each morning when she goes back in the cage she pees and doesn't cry at all. Twice in the last 4 days I did observe her pee with pain but she barely whimpered as opposed to the loud cries I was used to hearing.

I will be convinced after another week of this that it's due to the Shilintong. So far it seems to be the case.

This is domestically prepared stuff, right? It sounds great if it's working for you.

The pic doesn't look like it's domestic. That's a bit concerning. I wouldn't give my pigs (or myself) anything made over in China due to manufacturing rules and such. You could get surprises.

I sure hope you get continued help with this. You've been living with Angel and her painful urination for some time. If this really works it will indeed be fabulous. Go Carol!

As far as I can tell it comes from China. I've been reading about the experience of others for about a year now. I was very hesitant to try it but decided it was worth it after hearing nothing but good things about it. I don't have a problem with it because it's natural and has only the one ingredient in it. I may have made the right decision because so far it seems to be working with no side effects that I can see.

I got my shipment of your referred medicine in today. So 1 pill in 1/2 tspn water abd then give 1cc 2x/day, right? How long did it take before you started seeing improvement?

It seems I can get 3 x 1cc syringes out of 1 pill by adding 1/2 teaspoon of water to it. I give her one syringe in the morning and one at night.

I saw improvement within 2 days. I hope the same happens to Louie.

I just want to report that the improvement is still remarkable.

I have observed her pee at least 12 times and only 2 times did she show any sign of pain. The sign was just a quiet soft whimper as opposed to the crying sound she used to make. I am just so thrilled at this improvement! I bet Angel is too!

Keep up the good reports! If you read the latest stones digest, you'll notice someone asked about two similar herbs for UTI, Jin Quion Chai and Passwan. Know anything about them? And do you know what plant you are using? If there is an American plant like it?

How can I acces the stones digest? Do you have a link you can post?

I am not familiar with those other herbs. I am using Shilintong which is "coined leave desdemonium". I doubt there is an equivalent plant in America.

I was just at the Bronx zoo yesterday. In the Jungleworld exhibit there is a whole list of medicines in use today that came from plants in Asia.

I think there's a link on the stones page in the guide. It's a mail list. Not very organized, random postings, no real experts, but people sharing their experiences. Becky and a few others have posted to the list.

It's been a few days now and I've been doing just what you said GP. No change yet but I am still VERY hopeful. Do you have Elsie on metacam, too? I have noticed a slight weight increase in Louie this week so maybe that's a sign, too.

But hey, you forgot to mention how BAD it smells. Peeeeuuuu. Louie hates it to but I keep telling him it's for his own good.

Nope, Elsie's not on it. I accidentally started posting updates on Angel on Elsie's thread...so, I just kept going. Elsie's fine.

Angel's not on Metacam...it did nothing for her. She's been on a few antibiotics, Amitryptilline (SP?) to block the pain receptor, corn silk and hydrangea oil. None of those things helped her.

Yeah...it smells awful. Would you believe Angel likes it? I can actually prop her up on the bed with her back up against the pillows and syringe it to her! I'll have to post a pic soon. It's too funny!

I hope it works for Louie. Since he has a stone I would imagine it would take a while to work. Some people claimed it actually dissolved stones in their pigs!

Update: June 23rd.

While she is not cured, Angel continues to show the Shillintong is giving her relief.

I am thrilled and so is she!

That is such good news! Someone on Louie's thread showed interest - I pointed her/him to this thread.

Update: Angel appears to have a large, very solid feeling mass on one side of her chest. I am worried.

Does anybody know if the vet can aspirate to see what comes out of it?

It might still be a common type of skin tumor. How large? It came up suddenly? From what I remember, a needle aspirate can help but a wedge biopsy will give more complete results (you only get a little of it with an aspiration).

It's about the size of a golf ball and very firm. I noticed it came up very suddenly.

What's a wedge biopsy?

They take a chunk or punch sample of the mass without removing it. Much more accurate than fine needle aspirate.
