Pusatilla - deep acting remedy for cats? (Namaste or anyone else))Greetings,
I am hoping you all can help me w/ a question re: Pusatilla...
I have an alsmost 13 year old male kitty - he was diagnosed w/ malignant oral melanoma last Aug. 2005 (he is in remission now) and due to lack of cure w/ allopathic vets we went homepathic route...
We are on 2nd homeopath and have made progress w/ his lifelong battle w/ so called IBD - the remedy that really seemed to help in that as well as behavoiral issues (pulling out his own fur) and just making him happy was... pusatilla LM1... after 3 doses for 3 consecuvtive weeks (and loads of improvment) our homeopath said PUSATILLA IS NOT A DEEP ACTING REMEDY so we waited for 10 days did another consult (all that time he was continuing to improve) - and then we dosed him w/ silicea LM1.
Silicea was awful: vomiting returned, eyes became glassy and dots returned... overall he wnet down...
We consulted w/ homeopath 2 days ago and are waiting for her feedback...
But, I have been researching and found sites that say PUSATILLA IS A DEEP ACTING REMEDY...
So is it?
Because if it is a deep acting remedy then our homeopath is a dingbat and I need to discuus her choices and most probably find another homeopath...
Thanks for any feedack on pusatilla,

A return of old symptoms is a good sign. It means the body is healing.
I don't know if to say Pulsatilla is deep acting, but the dosage prescribed is a very high dosage especially for animals. Not that it is wrong, but higher potencies tend to cause strong aggravations.

The dose I give Felcity per his homeopath is usually done by uding the following procedure: the remedy (in this case Pusatilla); shaken 10 times, then adding one drop of it into 1 cup of water, stirring the cup for 30 seconds, then administiring 1/4cc to Felcity.
The dosage used has always been LM1.
Does this still seem a high dose?
She has tried Arsenicum, Pusuatilla, Silicea, and now wants to try Sulphur.
I really believe the Pusatilla helped Felicity; he stopped vomiting and pulling his fur out, he became silly, playfull, just very happy.
I am concerned she did not want to stick w/ it... maybe wait to see what other wonderful effects it would have.
Also, we have consulted for hours, should she be more able to find a proper remedy for Felicity, without all this trial and error?
(Keeping in mind Felicity has an extensive history of IBD and has had tons of allopathic procedures,meds., etc.)
Thanks as always and best to you and your animals:)

As long as the homeopath is certified and understand veterinary homeopathy all should be well.
You can tell when a remedy has stopped working because new symptoms appear and/or the old remedy no longer causes aggravation nor brings relief.
