Bone Fracture Remedies

| Modified on Nov 21, 2022
Has your pet ever had the unfortunate experience of breaking a leg or some type of bone?  As an owner you feel completely helpless in not being able to do more for your pet and help them to heal more quickly.  It is difficult to watch them struggle to hobble around in a cast or setting without the ability to explain to them why it must be this way and what they can do to help themselves heal.

There is however one additional way in which you can help to speed up the recovery process.  A homeopathic remedy of Symphytum can be very useful when your pet has a broken bone of some sort.  It has been known to dramatically speed up the healing process of bones.  If you treat your pet three to four times total during the entire course of healing, this should be plenty.  You want to be careful not to over treat with this particular remedy.

Symphytum is a dangerous herb to dogs because it contains comfry which is toxic to the liver. I have a rescued Dogue de Bordeaux who has an old bone fracture that was causing him extreme pain. I give him Arnica pellets which are very effective to relieve the pain and completely safe.

Symphytum 30C contains a homeopathic potency of comfrey, making the amount ingested negligible. It is recommended by vets trained in Homeopathy and is considered safe for short term use.
