Remedies come dry (pellet) and liquid form. It is best to administer the remedy without food or water in a fresh clean mouth.
We can place 2-4 small pellets directly on the gums or tongue(you can lift the upper lip up over the big canine tooth and place the pellets on the gum above the canine teeth, one time only or as directed by the doctor. This is considered single dose.
For Classical Homeopathy, we will administer 1 dose and wait, or, in some cases, we will repeat the dose for up to 3 doses. The doctor will advise you which dosing would work best for your pet. The remedy is absorbed through the nerve endings of the gums and does not need to be swallowed.
Some pellets are very large and can be crushed in between a sheet of paper and then placed on the tongue or gums. For pets that do not want their mouth touched or opened, place 2-3 smaller pellets or 1 large crushed pellet in 4 oz water distilled or spring water. After waiting 2-5 minutes, stir well (some pellets will not dissolve. That is fine, it is not necessary for the pellet to dissolve in the water, it will be transformed once the pellet is submerged in it .) and place 1 teaspoon of the solution on the gums. Also, your pet can drink a few laps from a bowl (just a teaspoon full) then empty the bowl. Do not give the whole 2-4oz.
If all else fails dip a treat in the remedy water get it good and wet, then offer it to your pet.
Liquid Remedy or LM Potency:
We sometimes use a liquid in an amber bottle for daily dosing this is the LM potency. You will succus (bang) the bottle 10 times on a book or your hand, then place 10 drops in 2-4 oz water (distilled or spring) wait 5 minutes, then stir well and give 1 teaspoon (or 3 mls (cc) from a syringe) on the gums. It is not necessary for your pet to drink it, he or she only needs to have the remedy contact the nerve endings of the gums. More is not better!!
If your pet worsens or does not improve after a few doses of the remedy, STOP the remedy and please call the clinic at 732-780-4211
