Aconitum Napellus

Aconite homeopathic remedy for animals

The primary state we associate with Aconite is fear. These animals tend to be very fearful, even terror, or panic-stricken. It is very useful for traumatic conditions like accidents, earthquakes, fires and fireworks. Animals needing Aconite may pace frantically, tremble and look extremely anxious.

Acon. is for shock, whether induced by physical or emotional trauma. The fear, anxiety and restlessness induced by shock can be relieved by Aconitum.

Physical symptoms that indicate the use of Aconitum tend to be sudden and intense, and very pronounced.

Aconite's proving describes a full, bounding pulse and tachycardia but in practice, shock which has induced a weak, rapid pulse will also respond to Aconite.

Aconite's picture of hemorrhage is sudden and profuse; the blood will be bright red. Hence, it works very will in cases of nosebleed.

Similar symptoms of fear and restlessness are seen in animals suffering from a high fever, and this represents the second major indication for Aconitum; administration of Aconite at the very first onset of fever or feeling ill, before any pathological changes have appeared, will often bring about rapid recovery.

Note: In acute stages this remedy works best if given immediately or within the first 24 to 48 hours of the onset of the illness.

When prescribing Aconite remember Aconite causes only functional disturbance, there is no evidence that it can produce tissue change - its action is brief and shows no periodicity. Its sphere is in the beginning of an acute disease and not to be continued after pathological change comes.

Human Note: In some cases, Aconitum has been known to almost instantly stop severe tachycardia. If you or someone you know suffers this problem a 30C dose may help. 1 or 2 pilules at the earliest onset of rapid heartbeat, then sit or lie down. Generally, one dose will calm the heart, even if there is a mitral valve problem.

Dose: 6c, 30c to 200c potency according to the susceptibility of the patient. In acute conditions it should be repeated frequently.

Abbreviations: Acon., Aconite (Monkshood)
