Brown dog with gangrene died - remedies that worked

I got a confirmation today after 6 days of searching for the brown dog with gangrene on Millers Rd that he is dead. A watchman of the next compound told me that he saw it 3 days ago dead on the street - probably the 18th or 17th even. My last feeding of him on the 15th was probably the last meal he had.

Remedies
The turpentine and iodine I'd applied to the exposed bone was too late by then or useless. As was the ergot cm - I might have saved him with a lower potency perhaps?? I've always given the highest they draw at so that they're relieved of the pain and symptoms - maybe that's the wrong approach. Lower would heal the body more aggressively. The Nitric acid 12x I poured on his leg right at the start did seem to heal best - I just didn't have the remedy or he was sleeping on the leg every other time that I saw him. I did add it in different potencies in his food though. He drew a lot of Zinc sulphate and Iodine that I would apply on his back and once Magnesium chloride, but if they helped or not it's hard to say since he had so little time left.
 
The gangrene was very aggressive eating up a half inch or more of flesh each day on his tail and leg. He might have been diabetic, just like Maya and so many older dogs, for that kind of fast spreading gangrene. Mostly he sat there for glucose biscuits that an animal lover would give him every morning without fail. They need that sugar, but it hurts them in the long run - they draw so much magnesium because it leeches right out of them in the urine. He also drew Rhus vens 50m - here they suggest Rhus aromatica (which I don't have) is good for diabetic ulcers along with Nitric acid 3d, so maybe that also explains the start of the brown dog's gangrene.

I don't feel sad but a kind of relief that he is not suffering and starving somewhere just out of reach. I've been searching quite hopelessly, but doggedly for the last week, and I'm glad that part is over as well. Now I can concentrate on the living who are sick. He's out of it all now I hope he's at peace and running like the wolf he was as a younger dog on some energy level!

Bad news mostly, a little good thrown in

The petrol bunk dog with the mumps and my gangrene brownie from miller's road have been missing. I managed to trace the former to a pick-up by 'a doctor' (probably one of these animal welfare groups who promise the earth and deliver the dog to its death in a shelter. The rascals). My gangrene dog is just not around - so either dead or hiding until the end of this cyclonic weather. I hope it's the latter, but last I saw his leg was eaten to the bone by the lack of circulation.:(

Though I'm sad and frustrated by their disappearance, esp if it was to a killing organisation, I'm equally frustrated that my own homeopathy and reiki are not healing them enough to avoid death, to recover. How can I fuss when I've reached a kind of limit with what I can do with my meds? At least let veterinary medicine try it's damnedest. This isn't the first time gangrene has beaten me, though this is the first time the mumps has been so very stubborn. The weather and earth changes make all the simple remedy solutions of the past too weak to do any work at all. What worked before in 2 doses or so now hasn't worked over even 3 weeks of giving it.

I heard of 6 people sick or dying that have had chronic problems - so the weather is beginning to pick off the weakest among us as well. It's activating the acute stage in so many who dragged along for so long.

All kinds of inflammatory and septic problems showing up in the cats too. One of my cats whose ear was chewed off, came after a week with gangrene-like wasting around his ear down to the skull. Sammy, a kitten who used to get dragged down by the weather, is now showing a swollen, probably a broken leg or bone inflammation. Wits end about it.:/ Given gunpwder 200, echin 200, arn 1m, hepar 200 to Sammy and One-ear, but nothing positive to show it has worked yet.

The good news is quite minor: I am usually too sick to feed the dogs so regularly during the rainy season. I have sore throats, fevers, colds and general weakness that saps me so much that the street feeding suffers. I also smoke about double my usual quota during the monsoon. This year I'm surprisingly healthy. If I am anything to go by, my animals are all collectively, in the majority, better off than they were last year.

For all my dogs and cats, and the few sick and dying, I hope they can also recover and thrive like I'm doing.
