Veterinary Homeopathy Remedy for Food and Garbage Poisoning
Natural Sollutions for Treating and Healing Your Pets at Home

Food and Garbage Poisoning

This homeopathic remedy comes first alphabetically and first in effectiveness. This is almost always the first choice for food poisoning. It is also quite successful for people, and the results are usually dramatic. The patient needing this remedy will often have diarrhea and nausea or vomiting at the same time. They may be quite ill, even fearful that they are severely ill and may die, they may also be very restless. These are strong keynotes in the materia medica for choosing Arsenicum.
Arsenicum Album 30c or 200c. Give as a wet dose. Dose every 15 to 30 minutes for up to 4 doses. Then every 2-4 hours until improved.
These patients are more severely affected in that they may become cold and weak to the point of collapse. The animal usually has severe, foul smelling gas as well. They often develop dry heaves. This is a severe state and if you do not see rapid improvement within a few doses, you should seek veterinary assistance.
Carbo vegetabilis 30c. Dose every 15 to 30 minutes for up to 4 doses. Then every 2-4 hours until improved.
Nux is a good choice for any toxic condition and food poisoning is certainly toxic. Consider this remedy if the animal becomes fidgety and irritable as the condition arises. Diarrhea with straining is a common factor, and the pet often continues to strain after emptying the bowel. Retching may occur as well, often without producing vomitus material. Rich food, too much food or garbage raids may bring about this condition.
Nux vomica 30c or 200c. Dose every 15 to 30 minutes for up to 4 doses. Then every 2-4 hours until improved.
This is a similar state to that of Arsenicum album, though somewhat more severe. There may be coldness and weakness along with the persistent nausea and vomiting. Usually there is not the excessive gas as with Carbo veg. If arsenicum does not work, this is often the second choice.
Veratrum album 30c. Dose every 15 to 30 minutes for up to 4 doses. Then every 2-4 hours until improved.
The vomiting here is violent and persistent. The affected animal may vomit blood or material that looks like coffee grounds. Unless you are positive that you are dealing with food poisoning as the culprit do not wait too long if you don't see marked improvement.
Crotalus horridus 30c. Dose every 20 to 30 minutes for up to 4 doses. Then every 2-4 hours until improved.
