Re: Natural/Holistic Anti-inflammatory and Pain

If you can only get one remedy I would try the homeopathic Bellis perennis. When my female had a suspected ligament/ strained muscle issue over a year ago, the ortho vet couldn't even see anything wrong with her because after only a couple days on the remedy she was all good and didn't show any symptoms.
But because her knee never had the chance to heal properly (since I didn't know, I didn't restrict her excercise) she came down with a partial ligament tear a couple months ago. Again, this and other homeopathic remedies helped to avoid surgery and she is almost back to normal today- though I wouldn't dare to take her hiking any time soon.

Your vet can also make a customized brace for the dogs knee for add. support.

I recommend Bosweilla. This herb actually has scientific studies backing it showing it's effectiveness. Here is a link for you to read more about it.

The herb is pretty easy to find in many vitamin and herbal stores etc. I used GNC's product in the past for my sheltie and found it effective.

Re: Natural/Holistic Anti-inflammatory and Pain

Lemongrass essential oil. It helps with pain and healing, and is especially good for ligaments. You can mix a couple drops with a bit of olive oil and then apply to the pawpads and it will be absorbed. Just make sure you're getting a quality essential oil. Only purchase when in glass bottles and no dropper tops. Essential oils are strong and will degrade plastic which then contaminates them. Make sure it has the latin name, and if it says what country its from thats a plus. Therapeutic grade essentials can be taken internally, so if it says not to consume its lesser quality. Best oils are the Young living oils but you have to order them. I have some now brand oils that I picked up at a local health store. (also, since oils are not regulated any can place claims such as therapeutic grade on their labels)

Re: Natural/Holistic Anti-inflammatory and Pain

Do many people give their dogs vitamin C ? I found this interesting- is it an everyday use or just when something is hurting? Sorry for asking a silly question, I have just recently been getting more into holistic remedies with dogs and trying to learn as much as possible. Right now my dogs get 1000 mg of fish oil with their morning meal, and my female with HD, and my female who had elbow dysplasia surgery get 1500 mg of glucosamine and 1200 mg of chondroiton twice a day.
