Homeopathic Remedies for Bleeding (Hemorrhage)

The loss of blood after any accident or injury is a natural process that helps to clean out the wound, but it shouldn't continue for very long. A trickle of blood for 5-10 minutes is acceptable but any more than that becomes a concern. In that amount of time the blood should have begun to form a clot. This kind of bleeding is from small blood vessels and is of little consequence. However, bleeding from larger vessels is much more serious and professional help should be sought immediately. Such blood may be coming from an artery or a vein.

The blood in the arteries contains oxygen and is bright red in color. It tends to pump out as the heart and pulse beat. The blood from veins is being returned to the heart from the tissues and has given up its oxygen. This blood is a dark red or wine color and tends to flow rather than pump out of the injury site. If the bleeding is severe it is probably coming from a major vessel.
In this condition, pressure should be applied to stop excessive blood loss, while on the way to or waiting for the veterinarian. The pressure may be in the form of a pad or bandage; in the case of a limb, a tourniquet will help hold the bleeding at bay if an artery has been damaged.
For shock. The animal may be very restless, anxious and fearful.
Aconite 30c. Begin dosing immediately and dose every 15-30 minutes for up to 4 doses.
Use if bleeding is due to an injury, or if bleeding has occurred previously and is only slight. Useful for bleeding from the tips of ears or from the end of the tail, or any other small wound, that cannot easily be bandaged.
Arnica 30c. Dose every 4 hours for 1-3 days as required.
For dark, unclotted, persistent, but not copious bleeding. Hamamelis is very similar to Arnica and should be used for bleeding after an injury if Arnica is ineffective.
Hamamelis 6c or 30c. Dose 3 times daily for 3-5 days.
This remedy is useful for bleeding due to a clotting deficiency or a severe infection. In either condition you should seek veterinary care. This remedy may help in the interim. The blood is usually dark and thin and will not clot, or clots very minimally. The remedy has an affinity to the right side of the body.
Crotalus horridus 30c. Dose every 30-60 minutes up to four doses, then 2-3 times daily for 1 or 2 days if necessary.

Ipecacuanha 30c. Dose every 30-60 minutes up to four doses, then 3-4 times daily for 1-2 days if necessary.
This is one of the main remedies for bleeding. If there is no other indications, this is a good remedy to start with for vomiting or rectal bleeding. It works well for excessive bleeding after dental work (e.g. tooth extractions).The blood tends to be bright red rather than dark. This remedy is also good for problems following anesthesia, so if your pet bleeds after surgery, this is the first choice.
Phosphorus 30c. Dose every 30-60 minutes up to four doses, then 3-4 times daily for 1-2 days if necessary.
