The patient was a Wolfdog eight years old. He was suffering from skin eruptions for around half a year. He had visited a vet many times and had taken a lot of medicines but there was no improvement. The vet said that the problem was too fatty food and forbade him all food except Diet granules for dogs. He had been eating this food for 3 months, but there was no relief.
I asked the owner of the dog to describe the dog and his behavior. She told me that the itching is the worst during the night (1), which made the dog bite himself (2) day in day out, so the open wounds couldn’t heal at all. He was an army dog. She got him when he was 2 years old and he was full of ticks and looked scared. She took good care of him. After a while she started to take him to exhibitions, where he got many awards. He could pose nicely and liked people looking at him (3).
He doesn’t like to be alone (4) and is always in the room with someone. He is very sleepy and he naps all day long (5). However, if the owner leaves the room, he wakes up and follows her. He is very attached to his owner. Even If she goes to the toilet, he follows her. He sits in front of the toilet door and wails until she lets him in (6).
He very often he makes sounds as if he is quarreling with the people at home (7). He always pushes his legs under the carpet (8). He trembles (9) and has nightmares (10).
Prescription: Stramonium 30C, one granule in the morning and one in the evening.
Follow up 2 days later
The dog was much better. He stopped biting himself and his skin started to recover. I followed him for 15 days. There were a lot of improvements in his behavior as well. The nightmares stopped.
Follow up one year later
I called the owner of the dog to see what was going on. She told me the dog had been fine since taking the homeopathic medicine. Unfortunately, somebody poisoned the dog a few days before I called. He had passed away from the poisoning.
