I have kittens with an infestation of roundworms.  (I know so because one of the kittens vomits them up.)  Five kittens are now 5 months old and one is 10 months old.  All have been showing signs of a worm infestation that had to have been there from birth.  I did 7 days of Cina 3c (3X per day for 7 days) at a vet’s recommendation.  Cina is roundworm specific but my kittens did not fit the remedy much otherwise.  Since Hahnemann has said that an anti-sporic must be used with worm infestations,   I am moving on to an anti-psoric for each kitten.  When I use an app for remedy selection,  calc. carb. comes up first as very strongly indicated for some of the kittens.  However,  none of them have large sweaty heads,  and an introductory veterinarian homeopathy course I purchased mentioned that “of course”  calc. carb. should never be used on someone that does not have a large, sweaty head.  Is this true?


(In case it matters to my question,  my (perhaps faulty) thinking was that I would be treating the kittens  for worm infestation rather than necessarily treating them with their constitutional remedies.  Each kitten needs its own specific anti-psoric,  of course.  I am thinking I should treat the worm infestation crisis as a chronic condition,  using dosing frequencies and potencies apppropriate for treating a chronic condition.  I was thinking I would use 30c potency wet dosing for stable kittens,  and 6c potency for hypersenstive ones (first one dry 6c  dose as a trial, and thereafter wet doses as needed).  So far this is what I think I have understood to do,  from my reading of an introductory homeopathy course. I had been under the impression,  perhaps wrongly so,  that “large sweaty head” was part of the constitutional description of calc. carb. ,  and  that the “constitutional” description of a remedy doesn’t have to match a patient necessarily.  So what i need is better understanding of this question before I proceed.)

You’re inadvertently making this much more complicated than need by.  Abrotanum 3c, three times a day for 7 days is recommended for roundworms. At the end of 7 days, one dose of Calc can be given. In general, when treating an acute you don’t need to mix that up with constitutional prescribing. That can be done after the acute. For adult cats that are generally healthy, the allopathic treatment for worms is relatively safe.
