Graphites is the homeopathic remedy for pets with… Hot Spots – Excessive Tearing – Skin and Ear Infections. Like all the carbons, Graphites (Black lead) – Plumbago) is an anti-psoric (anti-itch) of great power. The animals needing this remedy have a tendency to experience skin eruptions at the bends of joints, and many of the eruptions discharge a honey-colored liquid when Graphites is needed. Not always, but especially suited to animals that are stout or obese, and they are sluggish in movement and in their ability to heal.
This remedy is made from graphite, which is primarily carbon. As carbon is the basis of all organic materials, any carbon-containing remedy is very important, especially for deep physical damage or malfunction. Graphites is often best given under the supervision of an experienced veterinary homeopath, though there are some acute indications that it can be used for at home.
