HomeoPet First Aid
Safe, Gentle, 100% Natural
First Aid remedy is indicated for bite wounds, cuts, bruising, sprains, teething, fever
and bone fractures. First Aid also assists in reducing bleeding and may be
used post surgery to improve healing time.
DOGS/CATS: Under 20 lbs/10 kg, 5 drops; 21-60 lbs/ 10-30 kg, 10 drops;
61-100 lbs/ 30-45 kg, 15 drops; over 100 lbs/45 kg, 20 drops. In acute
cases, such as injury or post surgery, the doses can be given every 15 minutes,
up to 4 doses, then follow dosing instructions above. For cases that are
not acute, one dose 3 times daily. Once a response is seen, administration
should be reduced to 2 times daily and eventually once daily. When
symptoms clear up, discontinue use. 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
Birds: Add 2 drops to at least 8 oz. of drinking
SMALL MAMMALS such as rabbits, ferrets, hamsters, and
pot bellied pigs can be dosed by weight as for cats and dogs in previous
ADMINISTRATION: Optimally, the
liquid preparation should be dropped directly into 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 either increased anxiety or a return of symptoms occurs while on the
medication, ceasing to use it 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).

animal use; keep out of reach of children.
