A dog suffering from arthritis can be a pitiful sight. Unable to move without pain, the poor animal can thankfully find relief through homeopathic remedies like bryonia alba.
Bryonia alba, also known as white bryony, is a perennial plant with thick roots, angular stems, white flowers and black berries. The healing properties are contained within the root.
Bryonia alba is cultivated mainly in southern England, although it can be found all across southern and eastern Europe.
Dogs suffering pain during movement are perfect candidates for bryonia alba, since it soothes joint pains associated with rheumatism and arthritis. Bryonia alba also treats Kennel Cough when movement triggers the hacking and wheezing.
Many commercial arthritis remedies and joint supplements for dogs contain bryonia alba. The treatments are available in liquid or pill form. It’s important to always follow the recommended dosage.
Never allow homeopathic remedies to take the place of veterinary appointments. A trained homeopath should be consulted for any chronic problem. When administering bryonia alba or any herbal remedy, monitor the dog closely and always use as little of the herb as possible to avoid any potential overdose.
