The most widespread treatment for infected wounds, that enjoys the trust of the medical community, is antibiotherapy. After this, surgery can be considered, if there are recurrences or serious risks for the patient's health. The following reported case aims to demonstrate the effectiveness of natural therapies in the resolution of infections that occur with suppuration. A half-blood old bitch developed an encapsulated abscess on the back of her neck. An exhaustive clinical examination was done to diagnose an immune deficiency. This can explain the failure of antibiotics prescribed by another practitioner. The combination of acupuncture, homeopathy, and phytotherapy solved the problem satisfactorily in one month. This integrative approach is based on the complementation between Chinese traditional medicine and homeopathic medicine.
