Dog - Homeopathic healing and skin eruptionsThanks for reading this. About 2 months ago we went to see a homeopathic vet, after our little Maltese, Edelweiss, had a bad bout of diarrhea. Since then we have changed her over to a completely raw diet, which she loves, and begun homeopathic treatment. Initially she was given Calcaria Carbonica, and then 2 doses of Lycopodium (30C, I believe). Her vet and anyone we ask gets all excited about the fact that E. has developed quite bothersome skin eruptions on her back, around h er eyes, genitalia and anus. This seems to be a detoxification reaction.
while we are very glad to be getting rid of all this crud, we are extremely concerned about our baby. She now wears a collar so as not to lick herself raw... and she wants to scratch so badly. While our homeo vet doesn;t seem worried, and E.'s attitude in general is quite good, we would love to hear from others who may have gone through something similar -- I would love to be reinforced about this being a good thing! There are times when I want to take her to a vet and give her cortizone -- but we will NOT do so. Thanks for listening!

Is she a hot -- stays away from the fire/heat ---- or cold likes to get near heat?
Is she aggresive or easy going , likes having a fuss made of her ---or not.

She seems hot -- pants and likes to lie down on bare floor.
She is generally very easy going -- and her "mom" does fuss over her, and she likes that. She's very expressive and loving. She only gets a bit ticked off when I stop her from licking and scratching. But she just growls a bit and then looks lovingly at me.

Licking is a natural reaction and actually a dog's saliva does contain healing properties. Your dog may be licking the wounds raw, but the saliva will keep them clean.
Be patient, it gets worse before it gets better. This is illness coming out of its skin rather than sitting in her body and causing horrible illnesses down the line. Would you rather have this or a diagnosis of a degenerative or terminal disease?
The skin erruptions are a small price to pay for a cure.
Your dog will heal, give it time, trust in the process, and relax. If you are upset it will inerfere with your dog's healing. Remember this is about your dog. Homeopathy never fails it is the person administering it that does, or the person in charge of the animal that gives up and runs for the medications.
Glad to see you are avoiding Cortisone. That only adds gasoline to the fire.
Study these remedies and read all you can about them so you better understand them and how they heal the body. Inward to outward that is how they work.
It is a blessing to have remedies that can unearth all the damage done by genetics/environment and Western Medicine.

My wife has always believed in fasting and naturopathy, and now I do too, but seeing our doggie going nuts from this has been difficult (and still is). Today we saw our homeo vet again and she said that the Lycopodium had done its job and that now she needed a new remedy as her cleaning out continued. This time she gave her Mercury Corrosive 30C. She said this would reduce the inflamation in her genitals and thus the licking -- but she said she was very happy to see how well her body is healing itself! I praise God that He has designed it this way -- I only wish we humans hadn't sold out to convenience and quick fixes!
Again, thanks for your reply. It helped to confirm that we need to sit back and leave her to heal herself rather than trying to protect her.

Remember you would not force someone with food poisoning to keep their vomit and fecal matter within them if they were poisoned. You would let the body rid them of poison, even if you wanted to "rescue" them.
That is what I keep in mind when my animals have been ill. Remember your dog feels what you feel. Take it day by day and tell her what is going on and why she is going through this. She will hear you.
Animals are closer to the Creator than we are. They have no judgement, they either want help or they don't. They know when they are sick and when it is their time.
You will have days with homeopathy where you are at your wits end and then you will have days where you see the miracle of it right before your eyes.
