My dog has Staph (& boils now)

My dog has had staph for a couple weeks now, mainly on her underbelly, but it has been traveling to other random spots as well. I was try ing to treat it homeopathically, but since she had an emotional trauma(choked on water the wrong way and couldn't breathe for 10 minutes) last week she had boils crop up as well, again on the underbelly groin, right side. They have since expressed, but are totally painful in that area. I'm not sure if I should treat her staph, the boils, or her emotional outlook first. She's in terrible pain and sad so I would love to rush to fixing her skin.

she eats a home-cooked meal of dark chicken with peas, carrots, broccoli or zuccini and sweet potato(for starch). Then flax seed, enzymes and kelp powder with vitamins sometimes(she doesn't always like the kelp). Same goes for taking plain yogurt.

If anyone has suggestions for how to proceed I would really appreciate it. Or if you know a good homeopathic &/or Bach flower remedies book to get please let me know, I'm in the market to purchase some.

I already tried essential oils, but hadn't much luck with that, but if there's proper application to use I'll try that again too.

Thanks in advance from me and Chili :)

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Transfer Factor Plus has cured staph infections in pets. Fast too. Grapefruit Seed Extract is also excellent for staph and e.coli infections but it always has to be mixed in something like food because it's very bitter and very potent so 5-7 drops is considered one dose. As for Flower Essences, Rescue Remedy is usually given for trauma and shock, Crabapple for boils, skin infections, etc, and Centaury for loss of vitality and weakened defenses.

That's really helpful, thanks for the reply. I will get some rescue remedy and look for the grapefruit seed extract. Where can I even get that???

I also started using manuka honey +15 yesterday. Her boils have already been clearing with just the applications of castor oil and calendula salve. Only few bits of yellow crust remain.

I also started adding apple cider vinegar and echinacea to her food in very small amounts.

Will Rescue Remedy help her with everyday stress that seems to be coming from her current health status?

You can get GSE at any health food store. Remember, it's very potent and bitter and always has to be mixed in something like food. As for stress, look into the Bach Flower Essences- there are some there for all types of stress. Rescue Remedy is used for shock, trauma, and short-term stress like a visit to the vet's office. Any health food store should have a book on Bach Flower Essences or it's easily enough looked up under any Search engine.
