Distemper Prevention in Homeopathy

Pre and Recurring Distemper symptoms
I'm going to cover as many of the chronic signs that go with 'distemper' so that we can recognise and fix the problem before the acute attack.

* One of the signs is a kind of shoulder rheumatism, rash or eczema between the blades. As if there is an underlying heart problem.
* Another sign is a diseased or withered limb
* another sign is a 'railroad spine' the spine is sclerosed.
* eye glue - especially if it covers the eyeball in the morning, purulent or foggy.
* underdevelopment: those cute puppies that stay puppy-like long after they should have had a growth spurt. They will be cute until an organ fails.
* incessant itching that is impossible to help. Ringworm.
* Tapeworm. Stools crumbling at the anus with segments. Pappy stools.
* Reaction to the weather change. All these intensify 3 days or more before a rainstorm.
* grey dandruff
* trembling at night, worse, shuddering esp around 3 am.
* one ear itches and sloshes with a smelly fluid.
* intense restlessness and place changing.
* intense desire for meat and milk and sometimes biscuits.
* biting and tearing of bedclothes
* swollen hard liver
* an inability to focus or follow commands.
* The 'cute dumb' dog totally hairless and trembling that you see mocked on YouTube (could happily shoot the owner).

Many of these symptoms should be treated with argent nit 10m around full moon.
The rest require salt balancing that I haven't figured out yet. Mag carb is one, baryta carb and some acids. Phytolacca and Physostigma play a role too. I'm working on it.
More distemper remedies: for chorea of the eyes and head
So for the collapsing brain and drawing back of the eyes: Sabadilla, Calc carb, Cup ace, Argent nit and Aur mur in that order. But none of them work for long.:(
Since then I've thought Rhododendon would have prevented the problem entirely if given early enough. Squilla for the squishing ear. Taraxicum 10m for the railroad spine (which seems to be a liver problem). All the above are also worm symptoms.
  1. Distemper is so much like measles that homeopathic remedies for measles will help.
  2. Immunity is low so healing with that focus should do very well. 
  3. The third area is to help them deal with environmental stresses - weather patterns like wind, barometric pressure, temperature and rain, lightning, thunder; seasonal change esp spring and autumn; tides and early morning, late evening body sensitivity. Dogs react to all these esp when they have low immunity, blood poisoning, disease and debility

Prevention by treating blood poisoning, with bone marrow builders, dewormers and for acidity and nausea.

Blood poisoning
Of them, blood purifiers do best. The bones will leak out pus-filled blood from around the joints, the ears and throat.

Myristica and Borax/Boric acid seem best. The last two aborted the infection in my cats though it came back in one sneezy kitten during the seasonal change. Rhododendron might have helped it withstand this if I'd thought of it.

Gunpowder works best especially between new moon and full moon.

Bone marrow builders
Nausea: the nausea of distemper is from chorea in the eyes, middle ear balance disturbances and the bones of the ear, diaphragm disturbances and acidity. Ipecac in the new moon cycle and Cuprum acetate in the full moon cycle to help reduce it. If it is more severe, Pulsatilla? from full moon and Argent nit from the new moon should work.
