Hi there Dr. Jeff. Not sure what category this title should be under, but I am posting it here anyway. When I was at the vet clinic yesterday, there was a sad little kitty who had been hit by a car a couple of days ago and suffered a fracture of her tail at the base where her tail joins her body. Sheena (the kitty) is a sad little girl 14 years of age. She is bone thin and unfortunately, also has diabetes. She has very little appetite but drinks huge amounts of water. (goes with the diabetes I am assuming) As a result, she urinates a lot and of course, with her tail fracture she is somewhat incontinent right now. I cleaned her up as best I could as she was really dirty and smelled of urine. She craves affection and all she wanted to do was cuddle, which I was happy to do. I have read up on Hypericum and I think I want to give her this, as I feel this is the best remedy for her right now. Would 200C be too big a hit for her? What do you think her chances are of nerve regrowth, considering her age and present health condition? This might be an unfair question since you cannot see her to make any type of assessment, but my friend Jorge the vet doesn't have a lot of hope for her. I have asked him if he could contact the current owners, who do not seem to be very engaged in her welfare, if I could bring her home in to look after her myself, perhaps in a couple of days when she is hopefully, a bit more stable.
