It’s always good to be prepared if you live in an area with snakes, scorpions, deadly spiders, etc. The homeopathic snake bite protocol can save you so much anxst, not to mention dollars.
Recently, on my normal evening walk around a paddock, with Sadie my energetic boxer and two cats, a crisis happened. Sadie is, I presume, a pure bred boxer. In my opinion, purebreds are never as savvy as Heinz 57 or Heirloom varieties. And what she lacks in common sense, she makes up for in energy, joy and enthusiasm. She grins a lot. Even when in trouble.
Her normal routine is to gallop around, exercising those long legs, roll in the grass, eat horse poo, explore new smells and then come galloping back to us on the home stretch.
She was a little late in joining up with us and when she did, her gallop was a slow canter, lacking her normal joie de vive.
As she neared us, she fell over a root that a rock wallaby (think small) wouldn’t have noticed.
But she didn’t get back up. She just lay there with a leg at an uncomfortable looking angle.
I encouraged her to stand and we walked slowly the short distance back to the house and she slumped into her bed.
It was an unusually hot day for spring. A perfect day for the snakes to emerge after winter, especially the baby snakes. Baby dugites, one of our poisonous snakes, are considered to be more potent than the adults. In general, if you leave them alone, they will leave you alone. They don’t look for a fight.
But Sadie doesn’t have that normal radar animals have for danger and she probably just stumbled across one. Or fell over one. Or went to have a look at one, despite the warning signals.
I suspected she had been bitten.
I started her on my normal snake bite protocol. A few minutes after the first dose, she got up and wandered around in her normal behaviour, interested, tail up, alert.
Over the next few hours, I did give her three more doses, although I could tell from her that she really didn’t want them. And probably didn’t need them.
I used this same snake bite protocol for a cat some years ago. I found her walking around with a baby dugite hanging from her mouth. I didn’t interfere for two reasons:
- you can make the situation worse
- I knew I had the where-with-all to treat her
I just hoped the baby dugite got safely away.
Some hours after I saw her, she came into the house, very wobbly and unsteady. I figured she had been bitten, so started my normal snake bite protocol. This was a bit different from Sadie’s treatment as it was an older bite.
She had no interest in food that night, but was back to normal the next day. Both she, and I, slept soundly that night. I didn’t need to watch her or keep dosing her.
Quick, inexpensive, effective ways to deal with a potentially fatal problem. A miracle? Miracles happen all the time with good homeopathic treatment. And we treat everyone the same.
