Natural/Holistic Anti-inflammatory and Pain

Does anyone know of any natural or holistic anti-inflamatory & pain remedies/meds? My Holistic vet is closed until tomorrow and we just got back from Chimo's "other" vet. He tweeked his knee on the ice. She asked if I wanted their meds (Deramaxx etc.) or if I wanted to go with holistic stuff. She can be so kewl.

Her hubby is the jerk though.

Arnica. 30c, every 4 hours. No food or water a half hour before or after you give it.

Re: Natural/Holistic Anti-inflammatory and Pain

Are you looking for topical or to take internally?

Icing will help greatly!

EDIT: I agree with the homeopathic Arnica Montana.

Internal. She thinks it might be ligament damage/strain - not enough for surgery by any means but he has to take it easy and no rough-housing with the sisterhood.

Re: Natural/Holistic Anti-inflammatory and Pain

Oh just thought I would mention he is favoring his leg but not really limping on it unless it twists on him again. To me it would be minor but I dont want it to become major either.

Re: Natural/Holistic Anti-inflammatory and Pain

The best homeopathic remedies for strain/ligament injuries are Bellis perennis and Ruta gravis. You can give them both together, about 3xday and you should see improvement very quickly. Haven't had much success with Arnica for those issues, but it all depends.

Most HFS have combination remedies for sprain injuries (consisting of the remedies above and others) and other modalities - might be alot cheaper then buying indiv. remedies and a better option for people who are unexperienced in homeopathy and don't really know how to choose a remedy.

I would also give high doses of VitC and some fishoil for their anti-inflammatory properties.

Re: Natural/Holistic Anti-inflammatory and Pain

Well in his lunch today he had canned Mackerel (all out of fresh fish) and 1000 MG of Vit C. He did leave his Gluco in his bowl so I need to give him a spoonful of "lumpy pumpkin". He is being pretty good about staying off of it and is doing much better about keeping it away from the rambunctious daughters. KC bumped it last night and he did one of his "fatherly growls" and she promptly jumped off the futon and tried to wash his tonsils.
