Ruta in pregnancy?

Could anyone tell me for sure whether it' s safe to use Ruta during pregnancy? I've read that it's not safe, but I don't understand: if Ruta used as a herbal remedy stimulates the uterus, as a homeopathic remedy shouldn't it do the opposite? I'd like to use it for my horse's tendon problem, but she is in foal and I'd never forgive myself if she lost the foal.

She has navicular syndrome, involving inflammation of the tendons near to where they insert on the bone in the hoof, possible bursitis of one of the bones in the hoof, and possible abcess formation within the hoof.
External symptons are continuous lameness, worse for exercise, heel pain,.slight swelling of soft tissues above the hoof but without heat in the swelling or hoof. She doesn't like cold hosing.
She has been very lame for over two weeks, and was slightly lame when I got her just 1 month ago, so it could easily be a chronic problem. I don't know any past history.
I have tried árnica 30c and rhus tox 30c with no result on the lameness, but the rhus tox cleared up a skin irritation very well. I am now considering bryonia, silícea or ruta. Is it possible to combine any of these? And what dosage?

why dont you give calc carb 30,since you have already given arnica and rhus,calc should be administered after the sequence you have followed. is there any nodule formation in the place of injury?
anuj srivastava 7 years ago
I forgot to mention that poor circulation in the hoof is associated with navicular, so anything that promotes circulation should help.
When I said that her lameness worsens with movement, that's not strictly true. At first it improves slightly, but too much exercise is negative.

arnica and rhus had some positive effect,so calc is to be prescribed in sequence.
anuj srivastava 7 years ago
there is scar tissue on the tendon at the back of her pastern above the hoof. That was the only visible abnormality before the swelling appeared, although the lameness was already present. No visible site of injury .

i will go with calc.
anuj srivastava 7 years ago
What dosage and duration of calc do you recommend?
Bondre 7 years ago
five pills three times a day,give a feed back after four days.
anuj srivastava 7 years ago
Thanks, I will try that. Can I combine it with silícea?
Bondre 7 years ago
dont combine it they act in a different plane.
anuj srivastava 7 years ago
I have given her the calc carb for 4 days, but there hasn't been any response. No better, no worse.

try giving it 5 drops in some water three times.how did you administer RT?
anuj srivastava 7 years ago
In a piece of carrot. Otherwise she spits mostly of them out. How many pills should I dissolve in water, and should I shake it to potentise it?
Bondre 7 years ago
dissolve 20 pills in some water,for one dose.give three doses.
anuj srivastava 7 years ago
Possibly a slight reduction of the swelling, but no improvement in the lameness. Now the scar tissue on the back tendon is more noticeable, as there is less swelling in the área.
Is a change of remedy indicated?
Bondre 7 years ago
not recommended at the moment,when it subsides completely,and the lameness persists we will go in for hypericum.but at the moment it is waiting and watching.
anuj srivastava 7 years ago
Do I continue with the calc carb as before? Or reduce the frequency of dosage?
Bondre 7 years ago
continue for some times a day or two.
anuj srivastava 7 years ago
See, as per my knowledge instead
of Ruta you can surely go for the calc carb, plus as you mentioned in your post that you have already given arnica so now just for calc !!
Its good!!
