For nervous, restless, highly sensitive organisms.

 Loss of milk while nursing, without any known cause ( Asaf. )
Serviceable in almost all cases when it is required to dry up milk
(Asaf. - to bring back or increase it, Lac d. ).

Relations. - Similar: to, Apis , Con. , Murex , Lach. , Kali bi. , Puls. , Sep. , Sulph.
It generally acts best in single dose.

Probably no remedy in the Materia Medica presents a more valuable pathogenesis in symptoms of the throat, or one that will better repay a careful study.
Like Lachesis , this remedy has met with the most violent opposition from prejudice and ignorance, which its wonderful therapeutic powers have slowly, yet surely overcome. It was successfully used by Dioscorides, Pliny, and Sextus in ancient times, and revived in New York by Reisig, Bayard and Swan in the treatment of diphtheria. Reisig was the first to potentize it.

 The Healing Power
Dogs Milk. 

The principal theme of humans needing Lac caninum is that of being the underdog. These individuals develop a feeling of worthlessness and inferiority epitomized by an image of being looked down upon or even despised.

Also prominent in this remedy, as well as in some other animal medicines, is a sense of disgust with oneself and of dirtiness. This state may arise after a child has been sexually abused, mistreated, unfavorably compared, or rejected or repudiated by her parents. She begins to feel unlovable, less than, and of little consequence. As you can well imagine, this can be a setup for codependent relationships, addictions, or chronic depression. The image of being dirty or disgusting may be represented by dreams of snakes, urinating, or vermin.

The circumstances may seem so unbearable that the individual escapes through dissociation, leading to the sensation of floating - common to those needing Lac caninum.

Other common characteristics are breast problems, (we used this medicine successfully with a wo man who lost her child to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome and wanted her breast milk to dry up quickly), a strong desire for pungent condiments such as pepper or mustard, and an affinity for or an aversion to dogs and/or cats. Those needing this medicine can demonstrate a more aggressive, amoral, malicious, rude demeanor, however we have mainly seen the milder, self-deprecating side.

What we have seen most commonly in patients responding favorably to Lac caninum is a profound increase, even transformation, in self-esteem.
