Ledum Homeopathic Remedy for Pets

Ledum is the homeopathic remedy for pets with Puncture Wounds - Pressure Sores - Vaccine Reactions - Hematoma - Eye Injuries.

Nothing works better to calm an allergic reaction to flea or mosquito bites.

Homeopathic Ledum (Marsh Tea) is also used for puncture and stab wounds caused by thorns, nails, claws, teeth, talons, barbed wire, nails, injection needles, knives, or any sharp object (helps to prevent infection and tetanus if given soon enough).

Ledum has a specific action on hematoma (bleeding under the skin) after a trauma. It works deeper than and follows well after Arnica has been given. It will finish up where Arnica leaves off. If your pet receives a blow to the eye that causes swelling and bleeding, Ledum is great to give before heading to the veterinarian.

It is also the #1 remedy for pressure sores that won't heal. These are seen so often in older dogs and other animals (in people 'bedsores') that lay for long periods of time on concrete or other hard surfaces.

Ledum is considered to be most effective as a follow-up remedy to Arnica in the treatment of injuries such as sprains and hematoma, but it is best known for the treatment of injuries caused by sharp pointed instruments - puncture wounds and stabs. It is also commonly used for bites and stings, especially those sensitive to touch and relieved by cold applications.
