Creature Comforts—Trail Fix

Provided by: 

By Kathy Summers

Summer has a way of unleashing a dog lover’s adventurous nature—lucky for dogs. But runs, hikes, and all-out romps in the wild put your dog at risk for minor mishaps. Fortunately the same first-aid fixes that work for humans also work for dogs.

Chris Mangini, DVM, of Woodstock Animal Care in Vermont, hits the mountain trails regularly with his Bouvier des Flanders, Ziggy, but not without gauze pads, needle-nose pliers, and superglue.

Richard H. Pitcairn, DVM, PhD, author of Dr. Pitcairn’s Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs & Cats (Rodale, 2005), recommends homeopathic remedies, especially when you can’t reach your veterinarian right away.

The Injury The Quick Fix The Homeopathic Remedy
LACERATIONS
body cuts and scrapes, cracked or blistered pads
Once you’ve cleaned and dried them, mend body cuts or cracked paws with superglue (cyanoacrylate): Part the wound, pour glue into the crack, and pinch closed. For raw paws, try dog booties.Arnica montana 30C, as first remedy • Calendula tincture, 6 drops to 1 ounce water, apply with gauze • Calendula 30C, for large wounds • Phosphorus 30C, for profuse bleeding
PUNCTURES
thorn, sticker, cactus spine, quill, insect bite or sting, animal bite, snakebite
Use needle-nose pliers to pull out anything in the wound. Pliers can sometimes do the trick for porcupine quills, but seek a vet’s help if they’re in the mouth or throat. Wash animal bites with natural soap and water. Apply direct pressure only if bleeding profusely. For snakebites, see a vet.
Hypericum 30C, for plant punctures • Ledum 30C, for animal bites, snake bites, and insect bites or stings • Lachesis 30C, for poisonous snakebites
POISON
Ingesting dead
animals, toxic pond water and plants
Symptoms: Vomiting, excess salivation and urination, twitching, trembling. Mix 5 tsp. activated charcoal granules in 1 cup water. Spoon-feed 1/4 to 1 cup. Call National Animal Poison Control Center (888.426.4435).Nux vomica 30C, a few pellets on the tongue every 15 minutes for a total of three doses. Discontinue if symptoms worsen.
BURNS
chemical, electrical, campfire
Symptoms: White skin or scorched fur. Saturate gauze with Urtica urens (6 drops to 1 ounce water). Keep moist by adding more solution. Bandage if necessary. Arsenicum album 30C, one dose only
HEAT STROKESymptoms: Excessive panting, rapid heart rate, passing out. Cool body and head gradually with water, wet towels, and ice packs. Move to well-ventilated, shady area. Offer water to reduce dehydration.Belladonna 30C • Glonoine 30C, if no improvement within 30 minutes
