The medical treatment for cat bites is antibiotics. And whilst this can be effective at reducing the infection, it rarely helps with the acute pain. And with so much bacteria becoming resistant to antibiotics, the infection may not respond to one or even several courses.
So, on top of the toxic load of the antibiotics, comes that of the pain management.
There is another way!
A couple of weeks ago, I had to catch a frightened cat. I knew she would get me, but it was either that or risk losing her. Luckily for me, she was also rather weak from malnourishment, which made my job a bit easier.
When she was close to me, I made a grab for her. I got her and she got me! But I held on and we managed to make it back to the house more or less intact.
These photos show the finger about an hour after the bite. I didn’t cover it, dress it or use anything topical. The treatment was entirely oral homeopathic.
She bit my index finger and pierced the nail. Initially, as I was otherwise occupied, I just sucked on my finger. Saliva is a great cleanser of wounds.
Without any treatment a cat bite is likely to become infected, with pain, swelling, bruising and a reduced ability to use that part of your body, often for many days or possibly weeks. Even with treatment, you are likely to suffer pain, bruising and reduced use.
However, any good homeopathic treatment for cat bites is very different. It is highly effective, and the problem is short lived. And it is non toxic.
Once I had the cat safe, I started on my treatment. This is what happened.
These photos are 3 days after the bite. Note how healthy the tissue looks, and the very small amount of swelling.
Although the bite was at the finger tip, which is rich in nerves, I did not suffer any severe pain. The only pain I did have was at a level to make me aware to be careful.
The bite didn’t stop me doing anything, but with a finger stuck out away from the hand, I did tend to knock it a lot. But instead of the searing or strong pain you would expect, it was a normal ‘ouch’ level pain.
I slept normally, with no discomfort.
The ‘be cautious’ pain went after a couple of days.
There was never any bruising.
There was some slight swelling, and the awareness of tightness, but that too dissipated after a few days.
The nail is split, but it will grow out and normal nail is behind it.
Although the full treatment of such a severe bite is beyond the scope of most home prescribers, you can make a great start by using some of the acute homeopathic remedies in any good first aid kit. Starting the treatment off well makes an enormous difference to how you respond to the subsequent treatment.
You can learn about the treatment for cat bites, and a lot else besides, in my Natural Treatment of Injuries. Homeopathic treatment is effective, economical, elegant and energy based.
The cat is doing fine, putting on weight and responding to her homeopathic treatment.
