Homeopathy and Abscess

A few weeks ago I wrote a blog about an incident with my lovely border collie Panda. After her incident with a severe cut in her mouth, Panda developed a huge abscess on her neck. It grew slowly and was very firm. I thought it was probably a result of the cut healing too fast (which can happen when one uses Calendula). There was a bit of splinter left that may have caused an infection. I used Hepar Sulph at first followed by Mercurius. The abscess grew and became very red. I continued with Hepar Sulph and also gave warm applications to the area. By now it was the size of a lemon - but I could see that the abscess was going to break - I just didn't know when.

When I woke in the morning I saw a small pool of blood by my door...followed by blood spots everywhere! I was delighted that Panda was free of the abscess, however it took me a long time to clean up the mess. A dog tends to shake it's neck when it feels anything going on there and Panda shook her neck all over the flat! While Hepar Sulph is a great remedy for bringin the pus out of a wound or abscess, Silicea follows it beautiful to speed the healng process. That was the next remedy I gave her.

I am happy to report that Panda is her self once again - although she actually never seemed particularly bothered by the abscess. Ay least I knew it wasn't painful!
