Default Laryngeal Hemiplegia - (Equine)

Well, I am back with yet another problem.
I have a 5 year old stallion that was just scoped and diagnosed as having a paralyzed flapper. The vet recommended surgery.

I have the book "Homeopathy for Horses" by Time Couzens. It recommends Causticum 30c twice daily. It also says that this condition can often be successfully treated with homeopathy.

This sure is giving me some hope since the surgery sounds to only be about 50% successful and cause some ugly complications.

I was wondering if I could get more feedback on this.
Thanks in advance.

Causticum is sometimes successfully used for this problem. It`s also used for e.g. dogs that have lost their bark.

The voice box (larynx) consists of 2 flappers (arytenoid cartilages) that open when the horse needs air and closes when swallowing to protect the trachea (windpipe). Laryngeal hemiplegia (roaring) is a disorder/disease where one half of the larynx becomes paralyzed and when one side is paralyzed the affected flapper is sucked into the airway when the horse inhales and in this manner obstructs the airflow.

You can try Causticum 30c (or 30k), one dose twice a day for 10 days and this can be repeated if necessary. One dose is 4 tablets or 6 larger pellets (pills/pillules). You can taper down the remedy to once a day for 2 days and thereafter stop when you see a distinct improvement.

Homeopath for people and animals.
