Sometimes the most important lessons come from the words of the past. The following are taught by Medicine Cats and each is attributed to a cat of the past and considered a valuable piece of knowledge that supersedes clan affiliation. Most are ancient and have been passed down from the days of the splitting. Some from before then.
Substitution is the Medicine Cat’s greatest tool. Never just memorize a mixture, instead make sure that you know what each part does.

But don’t spend so much time on the diagnosis that the one cough becomes another. Treat the problem quickly and accurately.Treeclimber of RiverClan
