Canine cruciate ligament injury is common. Or becoming more common. I believe that there is one particular area that causes this. And that is the diet.
Dogs are typically fed a diet of processed food. This does nothing for their overall health, as commercial dog food is commonly low in quality, nutrient poor and high in chemicals.
A poor quality diet will lower the immune system of the dog, making it much more difficult to recover from injuries and to ward off disease.
However, redressing the damage already done, by a poor quality diet, is unlikely to help your dog’s current cruciate ligament problem now. Important though it is to immediately implement dietary changes, something else is needed, too. Something that will boost the immune system quickly, so that your dog can start healing himself.
Homeopathy works by doing just that – boosting the immune system quickly. This is done by carefully selecting the most appropriate medicine for the job in hand. Then the frequency of dose needs to be worked out and how long that medicine is needed.
Periodically, other homeopathic medicines may be indicated as symptoms change.
All this is best left to the skills of a professional homeopath who treats animals.
However, there are some common homeopathic home prescribing medicines many of which may help in the short term, or completely resolve the case if the damage is uncomplicated or not serious.
The more serious or complicated the problem, the more likely professional help is needed.
Any injury is best started off with the use of medicinal Arnica. If the injury has just happened and is a minor injury, this may be all that is required.
However, the more complicated the injury is, or the more serious, the more likely professional homeopathic help is likely to be needed.
