One of our HAWL farmer has written to use to report a pleasing outcome using Ledum Palulstre on one of her goats recently:
“Yesterday we noticed during milking that one of our best milkers had been injured in the udder with a horn. Milk was dripping out of the hole and she was a little in shock.
So, I gave her a dose of ledum 200c, and sprayed the hole with herbal wound spray to help it stay clean and heal.”
To a HAWL trained farmer this would be an obvious choice. The outcome was very encouraging.
“When she came in this morning for milk it was as if it hadn’t happened … the wound had healed cleanly and she was still in good milk. She came up at her usual time too, so was feeling normal.”
Small successes like this are very satisfying. A puncture wound can become more serious requiring antibiotics which could result in the temporary loss of milk or infection which impacts on the health of an animal.
The farmer reported that it wasn’t the first time they had experienced success with Ledum on puncture wounds. So, why is Ledum the remedy of choice here?
