I didn’t see any post about something new with her.  Maybe it was lost in the migration.  Could you please post again so people who can help have the latest information?

It wouldn’t let me go to page 2, but it did work finally! Is that odor coming from her ears?  Is she showing that brownish/golden/gunk in her ears or on her belly?  Reverse sneezing?

Is it accompanied by a cough-like indicator if she is reverse sneezing?

No, it’s not her ears. No gunk or particular odor there. It comes from her skin, stinky body odor like a yeast infection. She’s been better the past couple of days, not so stinky and not so itchy.  She doesn’t have the cough or reverse sneezing.

Although she’s a little better, she still itches and has the hair loss.  Wish I could afford to go to a homeopathic vet!

12/19/13 Lena became increasingly, constantly itchy early yesterday morning. I gave her one dose of rhus 30C. She almost immediately calmed down and went to sleep. The itching has been intermittent since.

12/24/13   After using the suggested remedies (rhus tox and calc carb) and also arsenicum album, Lena is better but not cured.

The itching is intermittent. It is worse upon waking and scratching can last many minutes.  She seems to itch all over, with feet and legs seeming to be extra itchy.

Some of her fur has grown back, but is still thin especially on back legs and around eyes. The skin on back legs is dry and flaky.

She still prefers heat, but now appears to enjoy water more and will run and play in streams when I take her on walks.

Her body odor is not as bad, breath still stinky most of the time.

She now has a small “stye”? on upper lid of left eye.  No discharge or odor from ears.

Good appetite, plenty of energy.

Does anyone have anything further to advise?  Thanks to you all.

So what have you done exactly since that previous post (where you had given a dose of Rhus-tox 30c)?

Hi David, thanks for reading.

After the dose of rhus tox on 12/18/13, intermittent itching continued. Then 12/22-24, two doses each day of arsenicum album. Itching is the same (intermittent), but the body odor is better.

To continue, when reviewing her history, I see this:

11/27/13 1 dose rhus 30C

Itching intermittent;;; gave 4 or 5 doses calc carb

12/18/13 1 dose rhus 30C when she was itching/scratching terribly. She calmed down in a few minutes and went to sleep.

3 days of arsenicum

12/25/13 1 dose rhus 30C when she was itching/scratching terribly. Once again, she calmed down in a few minutes and went to sleep.

Since she calms down from the dose of rhus, does this mean it is just palliative or is a cure working? I want to do what is right, so will not dose anything else for now. Thank you very much.

Alright we need to work through this systematically.

First thing I would suggest is to repeat the Rhus-tox each day for one week, to see if this makes any further improvements. Make sure you are hitting the bottle 3 times before each dose.

The next step, assuming that this does not further improve her, would be to obtain Rhus-tox 200c and give her a single dose. Don’t do this until you make a report of her progress here.

Then we can make further decisions based on her response.

I have been giving dry doses. Is this correct? I ask this because you said hit the bottle three times before each dose. Am I supposed to be “succussing” (spelling?) the remedy? Let me know and I will give as instructed, one dose per day for a week.  Thank you for your continued support.

David and Rebecca,

Both Rebecca and I are looking for pet homeopaths.  I may have found one for both of us, not sure… but I want to send her an e-mail and ask questions about her training, how she takes a case,  how she manages the case, how she doses, and if she uses the ADVANCED METHODS and medicinal solutions.  Is it appropriate to ask who her teacher was/is?  As I’ve said before, I was taught to never give a dry dose, and you answered that when I was posting about the hom vet I engaged a while back for one of mine who told me “… medicinal remedies are too messy” or something very close to that!

I intend to post the message with the questions for pet homs or hom vets later today or tomorrow to ask for your assistance about how to actually find a pet homeopath.  I know it’s possible because I had one I worked with for 2 years and one who is in Canada who was working with me while I was getting their paperwork ready.  Unfortunately she couldn’t take any more out of country cases by the time I finished their paperwork… sigh.

Anyway, if you have any instructions you give to your new patients (maybe, like my homeopath, you make their remedies) about How to Make a Remedy, would you please post it here so I can be sure that my own instructions are correct? How can we interview a homeopath if we’re not certain of the answer to the questions we’re asking?

LOL… thanks David. 

Vicki

I almost always dry dose my animals.  I liquid dose the chickens and once in awhile I might liquid dose the dog if I know I’m going to have to give her something 3-4 times a day.  Otherwise, I don’t see dry doses as wrong —- but I’m not David. wink

Rebecca I would start giving the remedy in a ‘wet’ (diluted) dose. It is impossible to alter the dose in the necessary fashion when you are using dry doses. Alteration is needed to continuing getting the best result from the remedy (and in some cases to get any result at all). You can only succuss a remedy that is in liquid form.

Add 2 pillules to a mixture of water and alcohol, 5:1, preferably in a bottle with a dropper, or a bottle with a lid at least. From this you can administer the remedy after hitting the bottle 3 times before each dose.

If you keep using dry doses what will tend to happen is the remedy will start to become less effective, if not stop working altogether.

Don’t know if I can take of week of this! Two days of the one dose per day rhus: itching is worse. The scratching/chewing episodes are much more frequent and more violent, with little bumps coming back on her legs. I’m afraid she’ll chew/scratch her skin open.

This is aggravation. Stop immediately! Did this occur after one dose or two?

Itching increased at first couple of days (doses), now has diminished. She has now had four days of doses, still itching but not constantly, back to intermittent. Bumps on legs went down. Will not dose again until you respond. Thank you!

10 days since the last remedy. Lena is still itching and chewing at her feet. It is still worse upon waking. She still likes to sit directly in front of a space heater.  She sometimes still has body odor like old cheese.  She is still full of energy with good appetite. Her fur has grown back in somewhat but not completely. It is still very thin around her eyes, tops of ears, and back legs.

To all of you who have responded to me, I thank you. Based on what we have done so far, does anyone have anything to add or suggest that I try next?  Thank you!

Does anyone think that vaccinosis could be the root of Lena’s problem? 

At about age 8 weeks, she received a combo vaccine for distemper, adenovirus, parainfluenza,  and parvo, and another single vaccine for coronavirus.  She came to us about a week or so later, and the fur on her legs and around eyes was already thin and it got worse as the itching increased. It has grown back somewhat now.
