Tarentula Spiders Help Infected Cattle

Foot_and_mouth_disease_in_mouth (1)Foot and mouth disease in cattle is treated by a homeopathic remedy prepared from the Tarentula cubensis spider.

Foot and Mouth is a contagious viral disease of cloven-hoofed animals such as cattle, buffalo, sheep, goats, pigs, antelope, deer, and bison. Infected animals develop a high fever and blisters in their mouth and on their feet.

In some countries, affected animals are slaughtered in an attempt to control the disease, but in other countries where the disease is endemic, this is impossible. Though most animals survive foot and mouth, recovery is slow, affecting meat and milk production.

One of the remedies used to treat (and prevent) this disease is prepared from Tarentula cubensis, a large hairy spider found in Cuba and parts of the USA. Homeopaths also use this remedy for types of carbuncles, abscesses, gangrene and to treat or prevent diphtheria and the bubonic plague.

Now, a pharmaceutical company has conducted a study on it incorporated it into a proprietary product for the management of foot and mouth disease.
