Mastitis in Dairy Animals

Mastitis in Dairy Animals

Below we detail our best homeopathic remedies to help with mastitis and high somatic cell count.


PSSC is a blend of 4 homeopathic remedies that assist mastitis. Suitable for treating mastitis in an individual in the cow shed, it can also be given at herd level into the water trough. It is a very effective mastitis remedy.

MB Nosode is a homeopathic nosode made from the most common bacteria that cause mastitis. Great to assist as a prophylactic/preventative for mastitis, it has also been found to help reduce high SCC. Suitable to treat at herd level and give to any cow with a cell count over 150k.

Bryonia is for the animal with a hard quarter and little to no milk coming out, in pain and irritable. You should notice a difference within 24 hours. Then use PSSC.

Belladonna 200c is for mastitis that comes on very quickly and is accompanied by fever and restlessness. The eyes may be glazed and the udder red hot to touch. 

Below is a blog Paulette wrote a few years ago while running a 100-cow shed on OAD milking.

I hope you all had a wonderful Xmas and are enjoying the new year. I had six days off over the Xmas break at the small farm. Unfortunately, upon returning, there was mastitis in the herd, the filter sock was a mess, and the SCC had climbed up. So all up, I found three cows with mastitis. I started treating all of them with PSSC, a homeopathic blend of remedies designed to assist cows with mastitis. I also milked them into the test bucket to bring the SCC down, so we didn't get a grade.

The PSSC remedy has been very successful; I do my usual three sprays per milking, one when they come into the shed, one when I put the cups on and one when I take them off. One of the cows was bucketed and treated for two days, cleared and put back in the vat. Another was treated and bucketed for four days, then returned in the vat. The third is still being treated but is clearing up nicely.

This is a great result. If I had used antibiotics, it would be three days of treatment and a withholding period of 96 hours for a twice-a-day herd. Since we are once a day, we have to double that from 4 to 8 days, so the cows would have been out of the vat for 11 days.

Below is a comparison of how long these cows were kept out of the vat on homeopathy and how long it would have been if I had treated them with antibiotics.


Homeopathic Treatment

Antibiotic treatment

Cow 1

2 days in bucket

11 days in bucket

Cow 2

4 days in bucket

11 days in bucket

Cow 3

5 days still in bucket but clearing

11 days in bucket

As you can see, it is quite a cost-saving for the owner, as homeopathy works out cheaper than antibiotics, and they get the milk back into the vat sooner.

High Somatic Cell Count

If you have a high cell count, start with MB Nosode in the water trough for the whole herd. Do this once daily for 3-6 days. Then move to PSSC, which can be used on the entire herd level for four days, or treat any cows showing signs of mastitis individually. If your cows have been tested and you have found a particular bacteria, we can mix up the nosode to help, but our MB Nosode has the five most common bacteria - Strep uberus, Strep aga, Strep dys, Strep aur and E coli.
