Hospice Remedies Ease Passing

Brandi’s time was up last evening, and she passed peacefully at almost 18 years old- old by any canine standards.

She was one of our star subjects for many healings, from calming during travel, to upset stomach, to blood in urine, to doggie old age which included hip dysplasia, exhaustion and rapid eye movement, seizure, tumors. Sorry to say I have read where vaccinations in dogs can cause hip dysplasia which I feel was at the root of Brandi’s decline.

For the last few weeks we have seen weight loss, lack of mobility, and loss of bowel control. I put her on Ledum and Dulcamara, which I dowsed for and they did offer immediate improvement, but really, there is only so much improvement one would hope to see at this advanced stages. I also put her on Hyaluronic acid which I feel also helped. Signs of pain such as tucked tail, licking, clopping and panting, were diminished.

There are a good number of hospice remedies that can be given when death is coming- all for a variety of different reasons.  I was using Carbo veg known as the ‘corpse reviver’ to bring her back after any episode of exhaustion and rapid eye movement, with great success. Also Bryonia is a good remedy for doggie old age.

But this time we chose to let Brandi pass.  The level of pain, lack of ability to walk (and she’s a big girl- Husky/Rottie mix) and loss of bowel control had become too much.  This time, I selected Arcenicum as a pre-death remedy, designed to settle her restlessness and relieve her great thirst, and Aconite for fear of death, and so she could let go. For us, it was relief and grief, and for Brandi it was freedom.

R.I.P. Brandi- so honored to know you.brandi
