Healing Crisis

Also known as the Herxheimer Reaction, this is the body’s way of restoring its natural balance and healing itself after treatment.


Your dog may feel worse for the first 24-72 hours and there may be an increase in their symptoms as the body looks to cleanse itself of impurities, toxins and muscular imbalances. This is a perfectly normal reaction and the symptoms may vary between mild and severe.


Signs of the Healing Crisis to look out for include:

  • Increase in sleeping
  • Lethargy
  • Quieter than normal
  • An increase in muscular or joint pain (lameness may be seen for 48 hours), don’t worry this is the treatment working
  • Frequent urination
  • Increased thirst
  • An increase in the original symptoms (again this is a good sign that the treatment is working)
