The common garden Marigold is one of the most popular homeopathic remedies. It is the best wound antiseptic available and can be used externally and internally.
Its main use is for the healing of cuts, open wounds and surgical incisions. You should never use Arnica cream on open wounds, only use Calendula cream!
Clinical uses: Homeopathic calendula can be given internally right before your pet has surgery as a preventative for infection and to promote speedy healing. Give a couple of the pillules right before any surgery. It will never interfere with any medication or anesthesia that your veterinarian uses. It would also be indicated for dental work that involves extraction or cutting of the gums: it relieves pain and stops the bleeding. Calendula is the top remedy pic for postoperative healing of incisions and tears.
