Just like us, animals are prone to a range of infectious and epidemic diseases. Kennel cough is a regular  problem with dogs that visit venues where many dogs gather together and Parvovirus and Distemper are also worrisome diseases. Cats by feline AIDS and Chlamydia. Cows are regularly troubled by mastitis (udder infections); cattle, sheep, goats and pigs catch the highly contagious foot and mouth disease. The list goes on and on. Protection, therefore, makes a lot of sense – but is there a safer and better way than the current system of animal vaccination?

Yes! Homoeopathy is a safe system of disease treatment and prevention for both humans and animals. It is free of toxic side-effects and so can protect without harm.

Veterinary homoeopathy has been in existence for almost as long as human homoeopathy – over two hundred years. Today, increasing numbers of professional vets are choosing to use homoeopathy in the treatment of animals. Mr  Christopher Day, MA vetMed VetFFHom MRCVS is one such vet. He has an extensive veterinarian homoeopathic practice and has conducted several studies on the preventative use of homoeopathy in animals.


Kennel Cough

One of Christopher Day’s studies was on a raging epidemic of kennel cough in a large canine boarding kennel. With the use of a homoeopathic prophylactic (preventative) he was able to reduce the occurrence of kennel cough from over 90% to less than 2%. 

Study 1: Christopher Day also carried out a study on cows in 2007 and found that after homoeopathic treatment with nosodes, cases of bovine mastitis dropped from 20 a month to 3 and 4 in subsequent months.


Study 2: A double-blind study done on randomised cows found that the homoeopathic prophylactic reduced the incidence of mastitis from 50% to only 5% in the treated sample. These impressive results were published in the English Dairy Farmer paper.


Today, most British dairy farmers use homoeopathy for the prevention of mastitis, among other things, in their herds because it makes good economic sense. Many organic farmers also use homoeopathy as a means of keeping their animals healthy without adding toxins to their body.

Study 1: In 1983 a study was done in a large pig farm with high rates of stillbirth. Within weeks of being treated with the homoeopathic preventative, the stillbirth rate had dropped to a quarter of normal levels.


These are just a few examples of the wide range of animal illnesses and problems that homoeopathy can protect against. The benefits are obvious: no toxic chemicals mean a happier, healthier pet; the pilules and liquids are easy to administer; and the treatment is affordable. The rates of success are high, being comparable or better than those of conventional vaccines. Best of all, homoeopathy works by building your animal’s natural immunity so that your pet’s health is improved, never worsened.

While homoeopathy is being used by a growing number of farmers to protect their livestock, most of us share our lives with a cat or a dog so it is good to know that homoeopathy is being used to protect cats from Chlamydia, cat flu, feline enteritis, feline aids and feline leukaemia, and dogs from distemper, kennel cough, heartworm, hepatitis and parvovirus.
