One of my cousin's dogs, a labrador, is a pretty old guy. He's got arthritis in his back legs. When we took him out for a walk along the river, the poor thing struggled up the hills. Then when we took him home, he'd just lie there with a pained look on his face.
My cousin had been going to a homeopathic doctor, looking for alternatives to the anti-inflammatory medicine she had been taking. She took them daily and they were bothering her stomach. The doctor gave her bryonia alba and it seemed to help her inflammation and pain.
She began thinking of her dog and his arthritis. The next time she went to the homeopathic doctor, she asked him if bryonia alba could help her dog. The doctor told her that he had read a few documented cases where dogs with arthritis responded to this plant formula. It's worth a try, she thought. After a few weeks, the dog walked and ran much more comfortably. She was surprised and happy and so was her dog.
