How to Treat Dog Neuralgia

Neuralgia refers to painful conditions that are not necessarily associated with movement, but which may attack the animal without warning.


The animal is heard vocalizing suddenly, and it avoids any movement at this moment. Sometimes the pain will cause it to snap at anyone who tries to touch it.


The pain results from an inflammation of nerves. Drafts could be one of the causes However, toxins somewhere in the body may also lead to nerve inflammation.

Important: If left untreated, neuralgia may lead to serious nerve disorders, including paralysis.


Important: The animal must have total rest!

Home Remedies

Give your dog one tablet of Hypericum D4 several times each day. If the pain seems to extend into the neck and head areas, add Gelsemium-Hcc drops to the treatment.  If, however, the pain appears to be localized more towards the back and pelvic areas, use Colocynthis-Hcc drops.
