Earlier, the homeopaths used to treat both human and animal patients and numerous case reports of treatment in dogs, horses, and cattle have been preserved.
In the later years of the nineteenth century, homeopathy began to decline in popularity with the development of the pharmaceutical industry. Homeopathy has been undergoing resurgence since the middle of the twentieth century, and has become popular again as a form of veterinary medicine in the past twenty to thirty years as animal owners and veterinarians explore it as a way beyond the limitations of conventional medicine. Formal training courses are offered to the veterinarians to make them successful and certified veterinarians.
Homeopathy is routinely practiced in dogs, cats, horses, ruminants, and birds. Its use in other exotic species is growing as well.
Why Choose Homeopathy?
Most vets are led to homeopathy frustrated by the chronic and recurring disorders of animal patients. The goal of homeopathic veterinarians is not only to treat disease but also to cure it. This means that the symptoms of the disease will vanish forever, and the patient will feel better, and there will not be any new symptom. Ideally, no further treatment is necessary.
What Can Be Treated By Homeopathy?
Almost every problem that can be treated by conventional western medicine (allopathy), can also be treated by homeopathy. Examples of chronic diseases that respond to homeopathy include – skin allergies, ear infections, asthma, diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease, epilepsy, thyroid disease and a host of other conditions. Veterinarians, who practice classical homeopathy, have found that many chronically ill patients can be restored to health. They have also found that homeopathy can rapidly and gently treat a diverse array of acute conditions from traumatic injuries to infections and poisonings.
Homeopathy is a holistic discipline and the principles of good health, such as diet, exercise and removal of stresses are also a part of the process of restoring health. Veterinarians, who practice homeopathy, have found it to be a gentle, safe and effective medical system, which offers a true cure to many patients.
