Active Ingredients  
  • Aconitum_Napellus
  • Aconitum Napellus 3x
    Used for conditions that start suddenly, often triggered by a cold wind or exposure to cold. Treats acute fevers. Used in the first stage of any condition or illness, even at the stage where one thinks there is something going on, but is not sure. It has particular application in the onset of sudden fever relating to injury. Conditions susceptible to the action of this treatment often begin after midnight, and often times, conditions will be found in animals in the morning that were not there the night before. This ingredient is also indicated in conditions that onset after shock or fright, e.g. burns from shock of electricity.

  • Arnica Montana 3x
    Leopards Bane
    Used for conditions, including mastitis, that occur from injury commonly associated with bruising, giving it the common name Brusiewort or Fall Herb. It is also indicated for the treatment or prevention of foul or putrid septic conditions following a minor cut, crack, graze, wound, fall, blow, or bruising. The injury can also be related to shock, trauma, and even emotional shock seen in some animals after rough handling. The animal does not want the affected area touched and can be averse to the approach of someone. Very occasionally, the opposite holds where an animal has an area that is badly injured and yet acts like it has not been injured; Arnica is once again indicated. The site of injury can often be a long way from the presenting problem, for example a cut on leg followed by mastitis – apply cream to both affected areas. It is indicated in abscesses or boils that do not mature and burst.

  • Bellis Perenis 3x
    Used for conditions involving injury, thus the common name “Wound-wort" or "Bruise-wort.” Very like Arnica, it is used for repairing deeper tissues affected by injury or inflammation, i.e. injuries from road traffic accidents. It is also very important in the deep bruising that occurs in the birth canal and its associated regions during delivery, giving this cream an indication for use in areas that are bruised, damaged or torn during delivery. Useful for inflammation and infection coming on around these events or similar tissue injuries, especially a blow in any species.

  • Bryonia 3x
    Wild Hops
    Bryonia is indicated for sprains and arthritis, with stiffness that is worse with movement. It is indicated where the condition causes the affected animal not to want to move, and often the animal is worse when it moves even slightly. The animal or human needing the action of Bryonia will lie on the painful area; a sign to look out for as this will respond to the Bryonia portion of the Healing Cream complex.

  • Calendula Offcinalis 3x
    From the same family as Arnica and Bellis P, Calendula is used for conditions where laceration or tearing occurs. Calendula has soothing properties with no inherent irritation and is useful in all conditions where the skin is damaged or affected. It helps the healing of tissues both before and after inflammation, abscessation, such as occurs in mastitis. It favors correct granulation and closure of wounds, and has antiseptic properties that will reduce the tendency to pus or clot formation. It has a positive action in abrasions, burns, cuts, fever, fistula, glandular swellings, Injuries, lacerated tissue, muscle, perineal vulval & nipple injury, puncture, surgical and other wounds, as well as ulcerations. This Healing Cream component is from a member of the Marigold family and speeds the healing of skin and wounds in general. Various species of Marigolds have been shown to have anti-viral, antibacterial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory and keratolytic properties, which is the basis of Marigold therapy that is used in the treatment of foot problems in humans.

  • Chamomilla Matricaria 3x
    German Chamomile
    Used for conditions where the patient is irritable from the pain of the condition, particularly where the animal bites, scratches, pecks or kicks (depending on species) due to the pain of the condition. Colic can be an associated feature for conditions where this works. The area becomes very sore and inflamed, being particularly tender to the touch. It is a member of the Composite family of healing plants to which Arnica, Bellis Perennis, and others belong.

  • Echinacea Angustifolia 3x
    Purple Coneflower
    Used for its antiseptic and immune properties. It is of prime importance in the treatment of septic conditions that tend toward gangrene and septicaemia, when neglected. Its use ranges from acute to septic conditions, particularly when associated with a fever. It has an additional benefit where initial causation is bites by insects, animals or even snakes. Its immune effects extend to cases of staphylococcal infection, such as MRSA’s, and other complaints that affect the skin, or immunity in general.

  • Echinacea Purpurea 3x
    Black Sampson
    Used in a similar fashion to Echinacea Angustifolia, but the fevers tend to be lower and last longer. Both are sometimes seen as interchangeable despite the difference in the fever type. Both forms of Echinacea are particularly useful in cases with fever and Staphylococcal infection, including Mastitis. They are also noted for their immune supportive action acting as a preventative for mastitis.

  • Graphites 8x
    Black Pencil Lead
    Graphites Black Pencil Lead Also called Plumbago, more commonly known as black pencil lead, a form or pure carbon that contains a small amount of iron. Its prime use in this cream is as an antipsoric, used for eczema, psoriasis, or herpes, characterized by eruptions and itching. Its initial use was discovered in a mirror factory where workers rubbed it on their skin for “tetters,” an old English word for the group of conditions indicated above. It is particularly useful for cracked fissured skin. Graphites is also particularly useful in the treatment of scars, especially in combination with Silicia as in the Healing Cream. An odd symptom that can specifically indicate the need for treatment with Graphites is the alternation of skin and digestive disorders

  • Hamamellis Virginia 3x
    Used particularly for conditions associated with bleeding, with a specific action on blood vessels, which is shown in the deep red color of the original homeopathic tincture. Used to treat venous congestion, evidenced by larger than normal veins in the affected region or where veins are painful hard and knotty—application of cream is indicated. Hamamellis has many other properties in common with Calendula, including its use in burns (including sunburn) and injury. Is wonderful for the removal of bruising, along with Arnica.

  • Hepar Sulphuris 4x
    Calcium Sulphide
    Used where there is a tendency to great pus formation (clots in milk or in abscess discharges), often with great pain. It is also known for its ability to get pus out of an affected gland or abscess, and restore normal function. The affected area, and often the whole patient, are over-sensitive to touch. In fact, the whole animal is often described as “touchy” at best, downright dangerous at worst, when touched. It is excellent for sore, cracked nipples.

  • Hypericum Perforatum 3x
    St. John's wort
    Used where conditions are more painful than one would expect. It excels for the treatment of wounds, particularly lacerated and puncture wounds, even mores so when in combination with Calendula, giving the cream the property of being easier to apply after each application. Useful for fresh scars that are painful, or old wounds or injuries that remain painful, even when the wound has healed. The prime action of Hypericum is on nerve endings where they are alight from injury.

  • Lachesis 8x
    Bushmaster Snake
    Lachesis muta muta (bushmaster) Dec 2004 Wikipedia Diluted venom of sake is used in source material – no trace of venom present in final product. Lachesis is used in malignant septic states, similar in appearance to those that onset after a snake bite. Often wounds progress to a gangrenous state, with a blue or purpling of the udder and ending with collapse, then cardiac and respiratory failure in neglected cases. An odd feature here is that symptoms are often worse on the left side of the animal. Gangrenous conditions are often a feature of E.Coli type infections. Conditions that respond to Lachesis are better for being allowed to discharge and worse if the flow of discharge is suppressed. Photo Source Christopher Murray

  • Ledum 3x
    Marsh Tea
    Indicated for use in wounds, particularly puncture wounds like those from a nail, which are surprisingly cool to the touch and rapidly develop into a foul smelling abscess. These signs are often accompanied by swelling, red spots, and a rash similar to skin that has had contact with poison ivy. Rhododendron tomentosum (syn. Ledum palustre) Photo Source Kristian Peters -- Fabelfroh 11:39, 11 October 2007 (UTC) Wikipedia

  • Millefolium 3x
    Used for injuries and complaints that are associated with excessively free bleeding. It also has application where conditions are accompanied by the onset of convulsions or tremors, such as the drop in milk yield associated with eclampsia. Application of cream to skin can help locally with healing. Photo Source Wikipedia Georg Slickers Yarrow (Achillea millefolium)2004

  • Mercurius Solubilis 9x
    Used where there is a painful, bad smelling discharge or wound with a greenish or bloody tinge. When affected with such an infection, the animal can be downright dangerous. Those who respond particularly well are very often fast on their feet. The infection can also be associated with bloody, mucousy diarrhea with straining, which, like the discharge, can have a greenish color. In severe cases there is often profuse salivation and ulceration of the mouth, similar to what occurs in calici virus in cats. Often Mercurius conditions and patients are worse when the animal comes into heat. Photo Source Tom Farrington

  • Phytolacca 6c
    Used for glands that become swollen and hot. It is a pre-eminent treatment for mastitis and mammary gland disorders, usually with radiating pains. The gland, if left untreated, becomes extremely tender, swollen and can progress to become stony hard with enlarged lymph glands. The affected area can develop a purple tinge; the teats or nipples, if affected, become cracked and very sensitive. It is used where the milk turns watery and bloody or becomes clotted. It can also aid in the removal of old scarring in affected mammary glands (udder in large animals). There is often stiffness where this treatment is indicated. This is primarily a glandular treatment ideally suited to the udder and its problems in mastitis. It has many other symptoms in common with Mercurius.leading to it often being called vegetable mercury.

  • Ruta Graveolans 3x
    Garden Rue / Herb-of-Grace
    Used for its effects on ligaments and connective tissue in general. Its action helps in supporting the udder through mastitis. It also helps the prevention and, where formed, promotes resorption of nodules. It improves the elasticity of ligaments including those in mammary or udder tissues, helping its recovery during and following mastitis by stopping the udder from developing permanent hardness of affected quarters or stopping those glands/quarters from dropping. Ruta is a wonderful remedy for sprains, along with Bryonia Arnica and Rhus Tox, giving the Healing Cream an application for joint sprains or affected ligaments.

  • Rhus Toxicodendron 3x
    Poison Oak
    Used for rashes on the skin that can range from urticari, to being red and swollen with crusts, and from being much like a cold sore in a human to chickenpox, which is similar to what occurs with Bovine Herpes Mammilitis. Animals benefiting from this are often stiff, and like all other symptoms is worse for cold, damp weather and on first rising, as is often seen in mastitis cases. It also benefits skin where pus has replaced the vesicles and eroded the hair. The rash is very itchy and animals that are affected will tear at themselves, while cows and large animals that are affected will kick their udders.

  • Silica 4x
    Pure Flint
    Used to stop the development or promote the resorption of pus where it has already formed. It acts to help with the expulsion of foreign bodies, such as thorns. It also helps with the healing of fistulas and sinuses on any part of the body, more particularly the udder in large animals. Animals that are chilly and seek heat particularly benefit from Silicia’s action. It helps with the removal of scarring, and can, in some cases, restore function to a damaged mammary gland (an almost dead quarter in cattle) due to abscess formation during mastitis, or large wounds that have healed poorly. It is used for cases of mastitis where the milk either has clots or has gone thin. It helps abort the suppurative stage of mastitis with its pus formation, and restores the udder and milk to normal. In farm animals it promotes a normal Somatic Cell Count (SCC), particularly when used in conjunction with Sulphur and Carbo Veg (SSC). It can be very helpful in summer mastitis (caused by Actinomyces Pyogenes, previously Corynebacterium Pyogenes), as well as chronic mastitis where the udder develops induration (hardness) and lumpiness due to numerous focal abscesses.

  • Stellaria Media 3x
    Used for its healing effects, particularly on skin. It acts on cuts, burns, and bruises, as well as rheumatic symptoms, the latter appearing as the stiffness often accompanying mastitis.

  • Sulphur 5x
    Sublimated Sulphur
    Sulphur, like Graphites, is a major antipsoric, making it useful for eczema, psoriasis, or herpes characterized by eruptions and itching. Sulphur conditions usually smell, but the smell can be washed off with shampoos, soaps, etc., yet within a few days the strong smell from the condition will return. It is also an abscess remedy, making it useful for mastitis, particularly summer mastitis where the milk is usually thick and pussy, containing thick clots and curds, as well as foul smelling. The teats can be cracked, especially around the base, and the cracks can bleed. Like Phytolacca, and Silicia - Sulphur can help in the treatment of subclinical and chronic mastitis. It is good for clearing out the udder and is particularly helpful in doing so in scruffy, dirty animals whose mastitis tends to onset in hot periods. Sulphur is particularly useful in animals that are averse to heat and seek shade in hot weather. The abscess discharges or milk curds often have a creamy yellow colour like Sulphur itself. Patients that are inquisitive and can’t be kept clean often respond well to sulphur. Within a few minutes after grooming, they are unkempt and with just a little access to dirt, they are filthy again. Picture Powdered Sulphur

  • Thuja 3x
    Arbor Vitae
    It has a reputation in the treatment of warts on any part of the body. Thuja also has application in the treatment of yeast and fungal infections. Patients who respond well to it often have a greasy and oily skin and coat. Picture © USDA-NRCS PLANTS Database / Herman, D.E., et al. 1996. North Dakota tree handbook.

  • Arsencium Iodatum 8x
    Iodide of Arsenic
    There are acrid discharges (burn of hair and skin) that often smell bad. Swollen glands and skin lesions similar to psoriasis or eczema. Open ulcers often respond to its use.

  • Belladonna 3x
    Deadly Nightshade
    Fever with a bounding pulse (in the neck particularly), often with the local area being hot flushed, red and swollen and often the whole animal can be in this state. This is one of the main treatments for acute fever as the signs suggest the head is often warmer than the legs and body. The eyes often have a wild look as the pupils dilate with the fever, accompanying injury or infection. Animals, though normally placid, can be fractious even aggressive with twitching.

All species dogs, cats, rabbits birds, etc., except fish.  Apply to affected area once to three times daily covering entire affected area.  Once a response is seen, the administration should either be reduced or ceased, only reapplying should symptoms reappear.
Additional Information 
INFORMATION ON THE COMBINATION: This combination of ingredients in its cream base provides a salve for a wide range of conditions affecting a broad range of species. It can be used as an adjunct in the treatment of septic wounds, both acute and chronic particularly in combination with antibiotic therapy where appropriate.  The ingredients have been selected to have a synergistic effect and are used at levels where the product is totally safe, natural and side-effect free.  It is effective in its own right, but can be used in any treatment regimen without any danger of interaction.  It promotes healing, not just of the skin, but also of the deeper tissues in general.  If applied at the earliest sign of change, it can be used to prevent progression to a more serious problem.  The cream can be used for a wide range of problems from minor cuts and grazes, to major wounds and tears, even sunburn.  The cream works exceptionally well when used externally and complemented by the use of Pilgrims Sport and injury tonic, given orally for internal support.

INDICATIONS:  First aid for grazes, cuts, bruises, wounds, burns, bites, scars, aids with infected wounds, sprains, ulcers, cracked skin and pads, and bedsores.
ADMINISTRATION:  Optimally, the cream should be applied directly to ulcers and large open wounds.  For incised (surgical wounds), similar cut type wounds, or puncture wounds, the cream should be applied around the area.  The cream is designed for compatibility with other Homeopet Products such as HP Trauma (Homepets First Aid Solution), HP Joint Relief, HP Skin & Itch, HP Hot Spot, HP Skin & Sebborrhea, and HP Flea.  Where wounds are cleaned by washing, for example with salt water, they should be dried well before application of the cream.
ADVERSE EFFECTS AND CONTRAINDICATIONS:  None known.  Although no evidence exists to the contrary, care should be taken with its use in pregnant animals as low potency homeopathics are historically not regarded as totally safe in pregnancy, despite their lack of chemicals.  Should a suspected adverse reaction be seen or you want advice, please contact HomeoPet, LLC.
DRUG INTERACTIONS:  None known.  For animal use only.  Keep out of reach of children.
PHARMACEUTICAL PRECAUTIONS:Store at room temperature, out of direct sunlight, and away from strong odors.
