Sarsaparilla for paralysis with renal colic

This has been my best find so far. All the street dogs with black edging their noses and fleas seem to have some renal insufficiency. And when they have spasms and tremors, trembling and paralysis (usually with one leg drawn up) Sarsaparilla can give incredible relief. Both Icy and Bowring boi are drawing it at cm potency. Bowring went in for s healing sleep for the first time since I picked him up with Sars cm and causticum 1pm given in the afternoon. Berberis ought to give the same relief except that I only have it on 3 or 6x potency from before.

Indigo as a preventative and Baptista

I read somewhere that wild indigo was reputed by herbalists to prevent distemper in cats, though unproven as yet. In homeopathy that is Baptista which is used in high fevers and works for a short duration.
Since I wasn't sure about the fever I didn't want to risk giving it as a blanket remedy so I replaced it with its milder cousin, Indigo tinctora 30, which doubles as a worm spasm preventative, since we're at the New moon and worms would be feeding and mating like crazy.
This immediately helped Icy and the new paralytic, Bowring boi. It probably helped the kittens too, from what I could see in one tragic case:
Unfortunately one of the kittens was killed last evening or night. When I saw the dogs playing with a dead body on the road, I checked to see if it was the distemper kitten. It was, but its eyes were clear of mucus and its body healthy. If it's siblings got the same benefit our of indigo, the set might survive.
Iodine after Full moon was probably primary in cutting off the disease. I used it as tincture about halfway to the first quarter moon. Indigo probably helped with some of the remaining abdominal weakness that leads to  or results from worms.
I'm speculating that Baptista would work as the acute febrifuge and indigo as the chronic to post-distemper suffering, though I've never tried either before.

Psorinum for Spring?

Terrified as I am of this remedy, I have decided to give it to all the dogs in food at 10m potency and risk it for 2 reasons:
1. For the last month, esp with the outbreak of distemper, I've been growing convinced that Psorinum would have prevented or successfully altered a number of those cases. An anti-sporic is after all anti microbial - whether viral or bacterial.
2. The virus attacks the rapidly growing cells - the bone marrow, the immune system and the stomach lining and skin ... what if these were stronger and renewed, couldn't the animal's body have resisted the disease better? Psorinum will push it out and limit it to the skin, theoretically.
3. I may be wrong completely, but I think Psorinum could be a good spring remedy, if not the best. Sulphur to is a spring remedy, when the body renews itself after winter. Psorinum is its chronic equivalent, so more so.
4. I read in connection to the Bowring paralyzed dog (which I picked up yesterday) that Psorinum and sulphur are two remedies for lymph glands. It is new moon in 2 days ago I'm hoping I've timed it right for some lymph cleansing.
I hope I only do good to them Fingers crossed that no animal gets harmed by this blanket medication in food. o that their bodies will only grow strong in immunity for the monsoon.
