Sprains in Dogs & Cats (Strains & Fractures)

Any injury involving a fracture will need immediate veterinary attention but sprains and strains in tendons, cartilages etc. that occur through injury or exercise can be helped by simple rest and restricted exercise.

Scullcap & Valerian Tablets should be given daily to reduce anxiety and keep the animal calm and relaxed while it is restricted and nature takes its course.

Comfrey herb (Symphytum officinalis) whose country name is Knitbone, was traditionally used to treat these conditions and although this is not commonly available in herbal form for internal use nowadays, the leaves collected from the plant can be useful when added to a poultice and applied to the affected area. In addition, the homoeopathic remedy Symphytum 15C is very useful.
