(NaturalNews) Off to the vet again, amidst plaintive cries from the cat and a wrestling match with Fido as he backs out of his collar. Horrendous vet visits are easily soothed with a few doses of homeopathic medicine. Remedies are simple to administer and calm nerves, lessen fear and reduce the humiliation of being stuck, prodded and handled for even the most ornery pet. Make veterinarian visits easier and less traumatic for pets by giving common homeopathic remedies.

Rescue Remedy

Rescue remedy is a Bach flower remedy consisting of a combination of several other flower remedies. Meant to restore internal balance and calm, it is often mistaken for a homeopathic remedy; however, Rescue remedy is actually not a homeopathic dilution. It is however, an excellent complement to other homeopathic remedies. Both pets and people do well with a few doses of diluted Rescue remedy, which acts to return an individual's inner equilibrium. Several drops squirted in the mouth is all most pets or people need to calm down. Repeat as needed.


A dropper bottle filled with homeopathic Arnica should be the first remedy in anyone's veterinarian kit. Arnica is used for shock to the body, mind, emotions and spirit. A dose of Arnica can help a pet settle down on the way to the vet and while at the hospital. It can be given along with Rescue remedy to reduce stress. Arnica is an excellent remedy to reduce pain, bruising and swelling after surgery of any kind; however, never give Arnica before surgery as it may cause unnecessary bleeding. Arnica is also the first remedy to give an injured animal due to its ability to reduce shock; however, Arnica should not be applied to open wounds.


Staphysagria helps overcome feelings of humiliation and indignation and the outrage that many pets experience as a result of being examined, stuck, prodded with instruments, and handled by multiple strangers. It's especially helpful after a procedure like a cystocentesis, to collect urine, a neutering, or other invasive procedure involving the rectum or genitals.


Ledum helps reduce trauma from being stuck with needles. It's especially helpful after an animal has had a microchip placed under the skin. If the remedy is given immediately after the chip is inserted, it may help prevent infections and the possible growth of certain types of tumors that form at the puncture site.


Arsenicum may sooth a dog or cat that is overly anxious and fearful of being taken away from its owner, especially if the animal must be left at the hospital. Many animals become extremely restless and fearful when placed in a cage, pacing back and forth, crying, or having difficulty breathing. A dose or two of Arsenicum may offer relief. Additionally, if these symptoms are accompanied by vomiting and/or diarrhea from a virus or from eating something unfamiliar, Arsenicum may relieve symptoms.


Some pets don't fully recover from anesthesia, remaining groggy, spaced out and "not all there." In cases like this, a dose of Phosphorus may help remove the effects of the anesthesia, returning the animal to its normal, pre-surgical state. One dose is usually all that is needed.


Dissolve one pellet of any remedy in a 1/2 to 1 ounce dropper bottle filled half way with distilled water and preserved with 1/4 ounce vodka. A dose equals two drops or a sniff from the open bottle. Many symptoms and conditions are not covered in this article. Consult a homeopath for additional directions or remedy suggestions.
