Ruta grav. Homeopathic Remedy for Pets

Ruta graveolens

Homeopathic remedy for ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT (ACL) injury in dogs and other species.

Ligament injuries with pain that is often sudden and severe in any animal.

OVEREXERTION AND INJURIES TO, JOINTS-LIGAMENTS-TENDONS

Ruta is similar to Rhus tox. in its application for joint pains and injuries. Homeopathically Ruta has a special affinity with muscles (especially flexor muscles), tendons and the periosteum (the outer layer or 'skin' of bones and the cartilage). Ruta also has similar indications to Arnica, for sprains and other injuries where the area feels deeply bruised. However, the Ruta patient is not as sensitive to touch as those needing Arnica.

The remedy is useful for treating damage to the sheaths of tendons where they insert into the periosteum, and for joint disorders. The wrist (carpal), ankle (tarsal) and knee (stifle) joints all respond particularly well to Ruta.

Symptoms of a knee (stifle) ligament injury are:

  • A loud pop or snap during the injury
  • Swelling
  • A popping feeling of looseness in the joint
  • Inability to put weight on the joint without pain
If they're not treated at the time, ACL injuries and other types of ligament injuries may act up months or years later. They can make the knee give out when the animal twists or pivots.

Additional Veterinary Uses for Ruta:

  • ARTHRITIC CONDITIONS
  • BROKEN BONES
  • SPRAINS AND STRAINS
  • INJURIES TO THE BRAIN AND SPINAL CORD
  • POSTPARTUM PAINS
