First aid for dogMy neighbor's dog got away from him on a walk and got hit by a car. They got her to a vet right away and X rays showed a broken pelvis which the vet said may or may not heal. Best case is the dog will recover and worst is that the dog may die or be paralyzed.
I want to give basic first aid remedies but don't know what potencies are appropriate for dogs. Its a large dog.
Can I give Arnica 30c or 200c. Should I give Aconite?
If the pelvis cannot be set, but may heal on its own, should Symphytum be given or not?
Thanks for any and all advice. I'd really like to help this dog recover.

If there are cuts or bruises, you can use Calendula ointment on them from the outside.
If the bones have been set correctly by the vet, then the remedy Symphytum can be given, as it will speed the healing of the bones.

I don't know about treating animals so I don't know if the potency guidelines are the same.
