First Response Homeopathic combination to support pain, shock, trauma, fever, disease, and inflammation at the onset.
This is an excerpt from an article Julie Anne wrote for Dogs Naturally Magazine...
"If we could think of a magic pill that could shift the very beginning initial stages of disease, fever, shock, trauma, or injury - that pill would be called ACONITE.
Many people think Aconite is just for fear - it is absolutely not! It can be given at the beginning signs of anything in the hopes of derailing the exciting cause. You can give this remedy at the first sign of inflamed ears, GI upset, fear, trauma, injury, etc.
The next remedy is Arnica. We often think that Arnica is just for injury but that is certainly not the case! It can be useful for any kind of pain and/or inflammation that includes belly pain, pancreas pain, tooth pain, ear ache, joint pain, pain from trauma, pain from hot spot...the list goes on! The pain reducing properties of Arnica do not work in the same way as a drug dose (it does not suppress the symptoms) but instead goes to the core of the inflammation, it can often even deal with an infection.
Arnica is listed in the material media for everything from infected skin to diarrhea. This remedy, along with Aconite can help to support you and your pet in the 'immediate'.
I have seen these 2 remedies address acute flare-ups of almost any kind and either derail the train wreck of a situation completely or support the tissue until treatment from the vet is administered (this can lessen the possibility of chronic disease as well). These remedies given en route to the vet can have a hugely positive impact in life-threatening situations such as injury from being hit by a car, a dog fight, etc."
