We often have people asking what are the best, most needed remedies that it would be a good idea to always have in the cupboard, close to hand – here is a list which is based on a chart which was originally done by Patricia Bryan, and has been tweaked to include extras I’ve found I’ve used regularly over the last few yrs.
In ‘most’ cases, I always use a 200c for dogs, as their energy is different to ours, but some remedies like Ledum you’d never need more than a 30c, but emergency remedies, like Aconite&Arnica I always also have in a 1M aswell as 200c [UK]
