Re: How to Speed Pet Healing after Surgery


I received an urgent request from a reader who is having a dog go into surgery.

I am wanting to incorporate many more of your questions into my newsletter. I can’t answer every question individually, but I will answer as many as possible. You are taking the time to read what I write…

So Thank You!

And now to the question.

I was asked if there was anything that could be used to speed healing after surgery?

My Answer… Many Things.

Healing after injuries or surgery can take a LONG time. There can be bruising, bleeding, broken bones and damaged organs.

Ligaments, Tendons, Connective tissue, and muscle all has to regenerate. These are often damaged as the surgeon makes an incision into the area.

A key component is rest.

Critical is adequate pain control.

The Natural Remedies that I advise work with your dog and cat’s body to help in healing. They provide pain control, aid in tissue healing, and do ALL of this without Conventional Medication Side Effects…

Here are the ones I advise:

Arnica – A homeopathic with strong anti-inflammatory and tissue healing properties. It treats shock, controls bleeding, and post-op injury.

Magnesium phosphoricum: – It is known as the ‘homeopathic aspirin’ due to its unique pain killing and curative properties and is also an effective muscle relaxant, preventing and treating spasms and cramps and promoting relaxation.

Symphytum officinale: – also called Comfrey, contains allantoin – a chemical which encourages bone, cartilage and muscle cells to grow. This explains why Comfrey is called ‘knitbone’ by traditional healers, helping to heal wounds and injuries of all kinds.

Matricaria recutita : – is known for its soothing, anti-inflammatory and pain relieving properties.


P.S. Something that I didn’t add is that a BIG DOSE of TLC goes a long way to healing your pet after surgery. See if you can have time off after the surgery so you can do whatever it takes to make your pet more comfortable. We often overlook the mental aspect of healing, BUT it is HUGE. A study done on dogs isolated in clinics (because of infectious disease) found that by simply making a point of having clinic staff spend MORE time with those dogs, they healed 30% faster.
