Inguinal or umbilical hernias in puppies and kittens - with little else in the diagnosis: NUX VOMICA (outgoing animals who seem hyper or driven, feel worse in the AM and are sensitive to noise & cold). Give 30c (one dose) and wait a week or 200c (one dose) and wait 2 weeks. If the hernia reduces in size slightly, only dose again when there has been no change in the size in 3 days (measure the hernia). If it improves, but not completely, you need a higher potency (200c or 1M), or a different remedy.

Note: Chronic dosing with Nux Vomica is thought to be more effective if given in the evening, during repose of mind and body; Sulph is best given in the morning.
