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.

wlt5 on Should I dose a cat in need before the vet administers toxic drugs, or after? Or both? https://forum.hpathy.com/forum/veterinary-homeopathy/should-i-dose-a-cat-in-need-before-the-vet-administers-toxic-drugs-or-after-or-both/#p10198 Veterinary Homeopathy https://forum.hpathy.com/forum/veterinary-homeopathy/should-i-dose-a-cat-in-need-before-the-vet-administers-toxic-drugs-or-after-or-both/#p10198 I took in a stray cat that was expecting.  As a result,  I now have seven cats and cannot afford to keep them all,  so I am trying to find loving homes for them.

The kiittens are now five months old and have a roundworm infestation.  Someone is adopting one of the kittens,  taking it from me in just three days,  and plans to use drugs to deal with parasites and fleas,  getting the drugs administered on a schedule of every 6 months. Her "homeopathic veterinarian"  (so-called) has not seen the kitten,  but has told her that homeopathy is not the answer for roundworms and has convinced her the kitten should stay on medication year-round especially since he will be an indoor-outdoor cat.  Sadly,  this vet is not a homeopath, obviously,  and is leading this lady, who wants what's best for her new kitten,  astray.

So the kitten's new owner has asked me to go ahead and administer the homeopathic remedy I had chosen for him, while he is still in my care,  even though she is going to put him on the drugs very soon.  I do not know when it is best to administer the remedy.  Now, before the drugs are given,  or later,  after the drugs have been given.

I have spent countless hours studying an introductory veterinarian homeopathy course in order to select the correct remedy for each kitten.  For this kitten,   I have chosen Sulphur because the kitten has some itching,  the kitten's stray father has mange,  and the kitten is easy-going and happy-go-lucky with little to nothing to indicate any remedy.He has had a couple of incidences of upper respiratory symptoms,  at the same time that his siblings have had them,  at times of weather changes,  and at least once (along with a fever) during a full moon.

  The mother cat had a few patches of missing fur when I acquired her,  but this is no longer the case for her.  After this kitten's neuter surgery and rabies vaccine of two months ago, he does itch a little bit more. 

  Nose, jaw, and ears,  especially,  itch. Inside the ears,  too.  There is a little bit of eye discharge coating outside the inner corner of his eyes.It looks whitish.  I have noticed mild twitching or trembling of muscles from time to time in his limbs while he sleeps.

His fur is very thick but rougher and dryer than the fur of his siblings.  He sort of coughed once, a month after the vaccine,  as if he were trying to get a worm out of his throat.  He also sleeps more after the vaccine.  He is very lovey-dovey and cuddly,  very sweet and kind,  and he is big.  Not obese,  just not small or thin.  He is very laid-back and mild in his personality.  He is not a picky eater.  He is a black-striped brown tabby with a little reddish fur outlining the spotted underside of his body,  and a little reddish fur in a few other places.  He is quiet.  Low maintenance.

The new owner wants me to administer an anti-psoric homeopathic remedy before she gets her the kitten in a couple of days.  My question is this:  Should a dose of a remedy be administered BEFORE the anti-flea and anti-worm drugs are given,  and if so,  how far in advance?(She is thinking of drugging him either immediately or within  two weeks, which I think is too soon.) Or should nothing be given until AFTER the administration of the drugs,  and after retaking the case?

wlt5 on Is calc sulph anti-psoric? https://forum.hpathy.com/forum/veterinary-homeopathy/is-calc-sulph-anti-psoric/#p10197 Veterinary Homeopathy https://forum.hpathy.com/forum/veterinary-homeopathy/is-calc-sulph-anti-psoric/#p10197 Sat, 09 Mar 2019 07:23:30 +0530 wlt5 on Roundworms in kittens, choosing a remedy https://forum.hpathy.com/forum/veterinary-homeopathy/roundworms-in-kittens-choosing-a-remedy/#p10196 Veterinary Homeopathy https://forum.hpathy.com/forum/veterinary-homeopathy/roundworms-in-kittens-choosing-a-remedy/#p10196 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.)

Being the runt of her litter was, though, the only one who came up to this age. Chronically undrnourished up to her two years and a half. Near her 3rd year she began presenting epilepsy, violent seizures, showing a regularity of being in serioes of about 8 in one or day and a half and recurring about every 3 weeks. Once the series would end she'd have a day or two being hyper and much hunger and whinning. Was treated with Belladona without results, then Cal. Car. also without results, then with Silicea about three of four months ago and apparently began to be positive results, the seizures series beginning to occur more distanced one from another series. But after the series of seizures would come after few days a period of deep physiccal depression, being adynamic and apparently repeating again feeling cool as she would coil even when the temperature would be warm; this same occurred before and was one of the cues to try Silicea, along with her personality and her "runtiness", but now more accentuated, and the fact that at her age she had accumulated a lot of dark teeth tar. Apparently Silicea stopped working on her. And then she took the custom of now seek to be propped while coiling with her torso somewhat up. Now, since the times she had Belladona appeared at times a little hacking caough, occurring randomly and very seldom, and a bit of nasal congestion along her snout all which was thought to be due to an overaction of Belladona or even to hairs in her throat at times. But since few days ago she began losing weight and being more adinamyc till now seems to have an acute bout of pneumonia, but without cough or sneezing and any discharge. Just a high fever, without any thirst, loss of appetite, she used to like all food now rejects all but a bit of meat. Her stolls were good and normal in appearance (but time ago she seemed to have problems about it, having stools that would be slimmy and at times with some tiny blood streaks). The appearance of being now a problem of an acute pneumonia is the high temperature and the kind of breath she has, fast, about 40 per minute and kinda shallow. She keeps being somewhat timid, without soem occasional gaiety she used to have, and very gentle. We cannot think right now in more than either Phosphorus or again Silica, for her personality and character. Though, she does not fit physical symptoms of Phosphorus as thirst for cool water thant there's vomited, fortunately till now there has been no vomits , but neither ishe now drinking anything, and then there are neither any kind of discharges, nor cough, nor other signs but the high temperature and great postration and fast and shallow breathing, all which reminds of Belladona but in violent ways. The onset of this present situation wasn't either tto fast as with Belladona. If anyone could give ideas ithey would be very much appreciated.

dneastbk on homeopathic remedy for complications of lyme disease in large breed dog? https://forum.hpathy.com/forum/veterinary-homeopathy/homeopathic-remedy-for-complications-of-lyme-disease-in-large-breed-dog/#p9835 Veterinary Homeopathy https://forum.hpathy.com/forum/veterinary-homeopathy/homeopathic-remedy-for-complications-of-lyme-disease-in-large-breed-dog/#p9835 Hello all, would enjoy hearing your thoughts. I have a large german-shepherd type dog on a course of doxycycline for lyme disease; however we are about three weeks in and she is not responding very well to treatment. It seems she is developing some autoimmune responses to the lyme. However it seems to me her worst symptoms are these -- they are better during the daytime, but get very pronounced in the evening after 7pm or so:

- nighttime low grade fever, and she feels very hot and seeks cool surfaces

- excessive, thick salivation

- apparent aches in joints and stiffness 

- labored breathing

- sometimes, extreme itchiness

 

She is normally an anxious, insecure dog with a very poor immune system from a parvo episode when a puppy.

We are trying some nosodes for lyme shortly, but I wonder if anyone has any other thoughts for some remedies that might help these nighttime fever and breathing issues. 

Appreciate any feedback, thank you.

Angel White on Hematoma in dog ear https://forum.hpathy.com/forum/veterinary-homeopathy/hematoma-in-dog-ear/#p9762 Veterinary Homeopathy https://forum.hpathy.com/forum/veterinary-homeopathy/hematoma-in-dog-ear/#p9762 Hello and thank you for posting your question.  I am new here, but wanted to share remedies that have worked for us.  Any swellings, particularly serous fluid that has not encapsulated can be helped by the herb hawthorn berry.  We rescue giant breed dogs and find that a dose of 3-4 capsules, 2 to 3 times daily depending on how the patient will reducing swelling.  If the hematoma has been there for months, it will take several weeks to eliminate it.  If the swelling was noted just yesterday, it will dissipate at a faster rate.  I commonly use this remedy on the giant breed males after neuter when the sac seems to swell and dogs are so very uncomfortable.  Of course ethanol ablation seems to stop this before it starts.  If there are no signs the swelling is going down after a week or so, I suggest adding Sulphur 30c twice daily.  I had a particularly stubborn hematoma on the ear flap and was told of this additional remedy.  It worked.  Best of luck with your dog.  I should note:  this does not work on elbow hygromas.  There is another remedy for that however.

bluedragon on pseudonomas in dog https://forum.hpathy.com/forum/veterinary-homeopathy/pseudonomas-in-dog/#p9676 Veterinary Homeopathy https://forum.hpathy.com/forum/veterinary-homeopathy/pseudonomas-in-dog/#p9676 Hi, I have a 10 yr old cocker spaniel, male, non neutered.  He has had recurrent ear infections, pseudonomas.  He has had all his injections as advised and has been taking the newer form of worming and flea treatment by mouth.

In the past he has had ear flushes under general anaesthetic and any number of antibiotics - none work.  I have cleared it myself with colloidal silver and oil of oregano.  This time, it changed from black sludge to a sticky yellow exudate - very smelly!  I had been trying apple cider vinegar mixed with water and a couple of drops of lavender.  

My husband took him to the vet and he has had two courses of treatment - they now want to flush his ear - I no longer have pet insurance - and anyhow - I don't think it will work anyway.  I have recently been treating him with a mix of colloidal silver and rose tincture (well, it smells better now and I thought as it is anti inflammatory, anti microbial and mild astringent it would help).  The exudate is less smelly and now runny, bit of blood.  Ear flap gets swollen and red.  I try and clean it twice a day.  I can't get it dry though - and his ear is always squishy.  I tried witch hazel yesterday to clean his ear and it has made it sore.  

I have a homeopathy first aid kit and wondered whether anyone had any suggestions to help my boy?  I would be very appreciative - and he, doubly so!

Oh - and i have changed his dog food to one without additives or grains and give him herbal teas - made with cleavers/nettles/violet and today the addition of thyme and a little coconut oil.....

Many thanks and I await eagerly for any suggestions.
