The use of Homoeopathy for treating animals is very successful often succeeding where conventional medicine has failed and refutes the accusaton of the 'placebo effect'.


The criticism often levelled at homoeopathic medicine is that it is purely a 'placebo' effect that triggers improvement not the actual remedy, after all how could it when the substance is so dilute? In other words the patient takes a sugar pill, believes he will be cured and so, he is. However if homoeopathic success is all in the mind, why does it work so well on animals?


The health and wellbeing of hundreds of thousands of animals benefit each year from the use of homoeopathy.
Presumably not one of them sat and pondered as the dose was administered, “this pill will make me better" and therefore became well.


Time after time homoeopathy is seen to bring quality of life back to animals that otherwise would have continued to suffer or at worst would have been euthanized. This is often after many months, even years of conventional treatment and several, if not thousands, of pounds having been spent to no effect. Owners more often than not come to a homoeopath as a last resort, when conventional treatment can do no more and the animal is very ill, yet, even so, many of these make a dramatic and some would say miraculous, recovery. However the sooner any dis-ease is addressed the better the results can be. Many a vet has advised a client that at the stage of disease their animal is at they may as well try homoeopathy, “it can’t do any harm”.  Expecting the rapid demise of the animal, only to be amazed to see the animals returned to full health and vigour.


Of course our animals can't tell us what ails them so good observation by the guardian is required. The guardian who knows their animal well will know when it is feeling better because the look in the eye changes, they appear more at ease, this is the first step in healing, the so called 'feeling of well being' even though symptoms may still be present the process has begun. Homoeopathy can also limit the side effects of conventional drugs and clear the build up of toxin residue from the body. It works well alongside conventional medicine too where hand in hand they help bring about a return to health with greatly reduced side effects from the conventional drugs.


UK Law and the Treatment of Animals


Please note that under UK law their is the requirement that a qualified vet must be consulted regarding treatment of animals other than for first aid. There are a growing number of conventionally qualified vets who, having become dissatisfied with the restrictions and side effects of that form of medicine, have taken it upon themselves to study homoeopathy and gain their vetFFHom certification or similar and are practicing in the UK and elsewhere.
Homoeopathic Practitioners and suppliers may supply remedies under your vets guidance or agreement. Only a vet or veterinarian specialist may diagnose your animals condition.  However you, as the owner, may also purchase remedies to assist in the recovery of your animals health without reference to your vet where the situation permits.
