Animals and Accidents & Injuries

In the case of accidents and injuries your remedies are invaluable. To minimise damage attend to any trauma quickly with the indicated remedy along with any other necessary first aid treatment. Taking care as even the friendliest animal, when scared, injured or in pain, are more likely to bite.
Veterinary advice should be sought if the injury is severe or if there is no quick response in a lesser one and support any treatment with homeopathy.

Aconite: Situations or accidents where patient suffers severe shock or fright, with agitation, restlessness & fear of death. For burns & scalds with acute pain & shock, eye injuries. Cuts & wounds that bleed freely when characteristic shock is present. The animal is cowering and seems terrified.
Arnica:  First remedy to think of in any accident. It helps the body cope with shock, physical trauma, bruising, concussion, black eyes, haemorrhage. Given at the first opportunity and repeated as needed it may dramatically minimise damage after accidents and injuries. A clue that Arnica is needed is that the animal is averse to touch.
Cantharis: After Aconite in the case of burns. Repeat as needed.
Hypericum: For injury to nerve fibres, especially crush injuries – paws, spine, tail etc.  Cuts, abrasions & burns. Helps to reduce pain & address nerve damage. Sharp, shooting pains. Often used in combination with Arnica and may need to be repeated often for pain.
Ledum: Puncture wounds (bites, stings, stepping on a pin). It can help prevent sepsis.
