Homeopathic Venomous Snake/Insect Bite Kit
Born of experience with two boxers who were bitten
by venomous snakes in October 2014, this kit contains the remedies that have
potential to turn a crisis into recovery in a very short time.
Seven year old boxer Ginger was apparently bitten on her front right
lower leg by a baby copperhead or rattlesnake based on the symptoms and fang mark
distance. Ginger was rushed to the emergency veterinary hospital and
gurneyed inside unconscious. Her situation was triaged and the veterinarian
provided pain medications, steroids and anti-inflammatories. She was later sent home with her prognosis
for survival uncertain. We were told to seek anti-venom treatment as soon
as possible and expect that if she lived, she might lose a large amount of
flesh around the fang incisions.
Five year old Dash was apparently bitten by a larger venomous
snake in the side of the face, as evidenced by a very large fang hole in his
left cheek that resulted in severe pain and swelling about the head and
neck. He was also prescribed the same treatment but we did not accept the steroids and antibiotics because he was not as critical and we do not typically use these as natural rearing breeders. He received homeopathics for pain support and swelling instead.
Antivenom was located during the night, with the caveat given that administration could potentially
do more harm than good, and also might result in death. Administration of anti-venom was quoted at
$4,000 for both dogs for the initial treatment and potentially more. Money was
not the object at that point, but the potential to worsen the situation was
what held me back to continue researching.
While I searched for
alternatives throughout the night, I provided as much support as possible using
compresses of Bentonite Clay soaked in Healing Solution over the incisions,
homeopathic Hypericum for deep pain relief, homeopathic Arnica to reduce
swelling and provide some pain relief at the incision site, homeopathic Ledum
to reduce swelling, and homeopathic Echinacea to prevent infection.
Dash's swelling receded after administration of Ledum and it was evident that pain relief was
working, yet Ginger drifted in and out of consciousness and showed no other
visible signs of improvement. She was
nearly comatose, although she did vomit profusely before collapsing.
Research finally revealed that I actually had one potential remedy on hand in my Top
100 Homeopathics Kit. My 3 choices for
homeopathic anti-venom were Lachesis, Crotalus, and Cedron. I learned that I could dose one of the
homeopathic choices, wait 15 minutes for improvement, then try the next choice
if I saw no changes. Fortunately, my
first choice of Lachesis caused Ginger to sit up within 15 minutes. A second dose resulted in her getting up and
walking around. A third dose resulted in
tail wagging and wanting petting. A
fourth and final dose resulted in Ginger eating a hearty breakfast and running
outside to play as if nothing had happened.
I am not a
licensed veterinarian nor a professional homeopathic practitioner. However, I have studied homeopathics and seen
miracles occur when using my little Kit.
I consider it the most important single investment I’ve made in healing animals
and people, and even carry it with me when I travel. I was hoping for another miracle and I got it
with my Kit. After pondering the success
of this protocol and consulting my own veterinarians, I was convinced that I
should offer a Venomous Snake Bite Kit that people could have on hand in the event of a
venomous bite from snakes or insects.
This is a Kit I personally would use on myself if I were bitten rather
than go to the ER.
I’m not recommending
that you avoid competent professional medical intervention, but my own
experience tells me that I would try this now first before trying to drive to
the ER or loading my pet up for the long and expensive trip that may or may not
be successful. Time is of the essence in
these situations, and trying the Kit first at home may just be the difference
between quick recovery and potential catastrophe to both the victim and your
wallet. Even using the remedy while
enroute to the ER may provide the opportunity to turn back home before
Mutus – made from the venom of the world’s longest pit viper, the Bushmaster
of Central and South America. This
remedy is credited with reversing the toxic effects of venomous bites of snakes

hemorrhaging, paralysis, paralysis, headache, and even hallucinations caused by

Helps with severe pain, swelling, and numbness. Lachesis, Crotalus and Cedron are included because if one does not see relief very quickly with one, it is time to try another.
Palustre – owing to its antiseptic properties, ledum is useful in preventing
any type of infection and is thus a vital component of the first-aid remedy
kit. It known to be especially effective
with puncture wounds and it has been found that injuries or stings that have
acute bruising accompanied by puffy and purplish skin can be healed effectively
with ledum. Ledum has even been known to
prevent tetanus in some cases.
– known for its ability to relieve excessive pain, hypericum is included in
the Kit to relieve the shooting pain associated with venomous snake and insect
bites. Although Arnica Montana can be
used as a substitute, Hypericum is more often prescribed for the intense pain
that one may experience when venom has been injected.

venomous stings, homeopathic Echinacea Ang can start your pet on the road to
