A Homeopathic First Aid Kit for Pets

Posted on February 6, 2015 at 10:17 AM

Now is the time to start planning the remedies you want to carry in your medicine cabinet … before your dog needs them!

Although homeopathy can be challenging to apply in chronic cases, it’s really quite easy for dog owners to effectively treat simple, acute cases with just a few remedies.  If given shortly after symptoms are seen, the right remedy can help your dog recover much more quickly.  Having the right remedies on hand can be especially important if you don’t have immediate access to quality veterinary care … although they can also be a life saver while you’re driving on the way to the emergency vet!

Acute disorders are illnesses and injuries that happen suddenly, often with obvious symptoms.  Because acute problems are quite easy for us to identify, finding the right remedy can be a fairly simple project.  What follows is a short list of problems your dog may run into and corresponding remedies that you can use to quickly reduce symptoms.

INSECT BITES AND STINGS

BREAKS, SPRAINS AND STRAINS

While this isn’t a complete list, it’s a great start and a perfect way to start building your own emergency kit with just a few remedies.

Purchase your remedies in 30c potency. A dose for all dogs, regardless of size, is three pellets. The more acute the injury, the more often you should dose. For sudden, traumatic episodes, you can repeat every five to 90 minutes and for milder cases, every day or two. Once you see an improvement in symptoms, stop giving the remedy.

Having these remedies readily available can make the difference between a fast and slow recovery for your dog.

Good Luck!!

homeopathy is working very slowly in the human body, in fact some people does effect on that treatment process. that is why they are chosen antibiotic medicine for treatment. most of the chronic cases are the same feedback.
