Homeopathic Remedies for Cat and Dog Dental Health

by | Jan 8, 2024 | Homeopathy, Remedies

A few weeks ago, we had a special Ask Julie Anything event all about dental care! Our good friend, homeopath Andrea Ring, joined Julie for this session, and together they were able to answer a whole host of questions related to cat and dog dental health.

You can watch the full AJA right here!

During the session, they shared some of their go-to homeopathic remedies for pre- and post dentals, as well as for some specific conditions, and we’re sharing them with you!

Thank you Julie and Andrea!

Homeopathic Remedies for Cat and Dog Dental Health

Note: to make a liquid combination – add 1 pellet of each remedy into 60ml of distilled water with 10 drops of vodka (to help preserve) into a bottle with lid. Give 0.5 ml along gums and succuss bottle (bang on palm of hand) 5 times before each dose. Reassess after 3 months. Remake this mixture as needed. 

1. Pre and Post Dental

  • Pre: Your Go 2 1 hour before leaving for vet and again on arrival there (aconite and arnica)
  • Post: Your Go 2, Jump 4 JOYnts along with Nux Vomica (Colubrina) 30C and Phosphorus 30C, and if any extractions including Hypericum 200C and Symphytum 200C

Give all as soon as possible after surgery, then 2 hours later, then every 4 hours until bed. 

The next day, stop Your Go 2 but continue Jump for JOYnts, Nux Vomica, and Phosphorous every 4 hours – along with Hypericum and Symphytum if there were extractions.

The next day, if there are no gastric issues (no vomiting, no diarrhea, and eating okay), stop Nux Vomica and Phosphorous, but continue Jump for JOYnts 3 times daily for 2 days, then stop.

If there were extractions, do the same, BUT continue Jump for JOYnts, Hypericum, and Symphytum 4 times daily for 2 days, then 3 times daily for 2 days, then reassess. These remedies can be continued up to 7-10 days if they are still painful and need them.
