One Monday morning in June 2014, the practitioner noticed that something was wrong with her dog Deedee. She was vomiting a little and could hardly walk. She was taken to the veterinarian. The vet said Deedee had suffered a stroke perhaps brought on by old age (she was 15). She also had inflammation of her digestive tract, which might have come from an infected bone, the former property of the neighbour’s dog. Deedee was given cortisone (2 tablets BD) for 2 days for swelling in the brain and antibiotics (1 tablet BD) for 3 days for the infection. Vibrionics was also started immediately. On Monday (day 1) Deedee was given:
#1. CC3.5 Arteriosclerosis + CC18.4 Paralysis…every hour
On Tuesday (day 2) the dosage was changed to every 2 hours and an additional combo was given at the same time for the infection and inflammation:
#2. CC9.2 Infections acute…every 2 hours
On Wednesday (day 3), she continued with #1 and #2 at 6TD. Although the vet had said that the cortisone would stimulate Deedee’s appetite, as of day 3, it had not. Deedee was still refusing to eat or drink anything. She would fall over whenever she tried to walk. She just lay where she was. That evening, the practitioner took her to another vet, who said she could be nauseous from uncontrolled fast eye movements. The practitioner then stopped cortisone and antibiotics and started Deedee on an additional remedy:
#3. CC4.10 Indigestion…6TD
Beginning on Thursday (day 4), Deedee started walking normally but with her head tilted. She ate a whole bowl of cat food and started drinking water again. The practitioner stopped #3 after Friday (day 5) but continued #1 & #2 at 6TD until the end of the week (day 7), TDS for the following week (days 8-14) and then OD for another week (days 17-22). Deedee continued to recover. About one month after the stroke, the practitioner reported that Deedee was barking, playing and running again as normal. She was the same dog as before. Only her head was still slightly tilted.
