Remedy may be dosed directly into mouth, on food/treat
or in water.
In acute cases, the doses can be given every 15
minutes, up 4 doses. For cases that are not acute, one dose 3 times
daily. Once a response is seen, the administration should be reduced to 2
times daily and eventually once daily. When symptoms clear up, discontinue
use. If reduction causes symptoms to worsen, original dosing may be
continued a little longer before reducing. If a remedy is working well and
dosing is not reduced, an aggravation of symptoms from overuse may occur.
Stopping the remedy for 3 days will reverse the symptoms, and then treatment can
begin as if using for the first time, weaning down as mentioned above.
Pets Under 1 lb: 2 drops in the drinking water 3
SMALL MAMMALS such as rabbits, ferrets, hamsters and pot
bellied pigs can be dosed by weight as for cats and dogs in previous section.
For severe cases, a drop can be diluted in 1 ml of water
or other oral rehydration fluid and given to the patient orally, taking care to
avoid aspiration of the fluid into the respiratory tract by the patient. 3
doses whose volume is appropriate to the size of the patient should be given
from the diluted product over a 24 hour period, e.g. 2 drops for a mouse or
small budgie, 4 drops for a large guinea pig. For acute cases it can be
repeated as for cats and dogs in previous dosing section.
Optimally the liquid preparation should be dropped directly on to the
mucous membrane of the mouth including lips, ideally in dogs by pulling out the
labial pouch and in cats by raising the head until the mouth opens. Where
an animal finds this distressful or an owner is unable to comply, the medication
can be put in the food, water or milk. Where animals are sensitive to the
odor of the alcohol preservative a 10-20 minute period should be allowed for it
to dilute and evaporate before the liquid or food is presented to the patient.
Occasionally, animals will shake their heads as a response to the alcohol
preservative; cats may salivate excessively and in these cases presenting it in
food, water or milk works.
ADVERSE EFFECTS AND
CONTRAINDICATIONS: None known other than reversible effect of
overdose. Overdose will result in a return of symptoms after the symptoms
have initially disappeared. Where a return of symptoms occur while on the
medication, ceasing to use will alleviate the effect. Patients who are
hypersensitive to homeopathic preparations will show response to a single dose,
which may not need to be repeated for some time. For this reason therapy
should always start with a single dose the previous day and should a major
response be seen, therapy should not be recommenced until symptoms relapse, and
then only a single dose given for maximum effect. Although there is no
evidence that there are any safety issues, extra care should always be taken
when dealing with pregnant animals. Should a suspected adverse reaction be
seen or advice needed, please contact HomeoPet, LLC (contact information at
bottom of sheet).
