Homeopathy is an alternative therapy option that is based on the theory that the same substances which cause illness in the body, when used properly, can actually counteract those very symptoms. In fact, the word homeopathy literally means “to treat with a similar disease”.
Homeopathic medicine uses all natural ingredients to support and strengthen the body’s ability to fight off illness and restore a sense of balance. It is particularly effective in managing chronic medical conditions to improve the patient’s overall quality of life. And because homeopathy does not include the use of pharmaceuticals, it can be used safely with almost any pet, including those who are sensitive to medication.
What can homeopathy treat?
Homeopathic medicine can be used to address a broad spectrum of conditions, both acute and chronic. These ailments may include, but are not limited to:
- Infectious Diseases
- Respiratory Disorders
- Skin Conditions
- Musculoskeletal Issues
Is homeopathy safe for my pet?
It’s important to note that homeopathic medicine, when not prescribed and administered properly, could actually produce side effects or a worsening of the initial problem. This is why it’s essential to work only with a vet that is trained and experienced in homeopathy. This will ensure that your pet receives the correct remedy and in the appropriate manner for optimal results.
The homeopathic medicine available at Healing Touch Veterinary Wellness Center can be used as standalone treatment, or in conjunction with our conventional medical services. Your pet’s individual situation will be carefully considered as we develop our treatment recommendation.
