Homeopathic treatment for dogs is, above all, safe. Let’s look at some of the areas that this amazingly discipline of health care covers.
In a recent issue of Cesar’s Way magazine, there was an interesting article called
Don’t Let Them Eat THIS!
Here are the top 10 things that can accidentally poison your pet, based on a recent study by the Veterinary Pet Insurance company:
- Pet or human drugs
- Mouse or rate poison.
- Chocolate, caffeine
- Household chemicals
- Snail and slug poison
- Heavy metals (lead, zinc)
A couple of other interesting facts about this study were
- 87% of all cases were due to the top 5 listed above.
- The average cost of each claim was $791!
The number one poison? It’s the drugs they were given by a veterinarian. Does that concern you at all?
The cost of accidental poisoning is pretty intense, too.
A pet getting into the drugs cabinet is as dangerous as that of a child.
One of the greatest side benefits of homeopathic treatment is how safe it is. Because homeopathy is an energetic medicine, it is not the size of the dose that matters, it’s the frequency with which it is taken. So one dose could be one pillule. Or it could be the whole bottle. It still remains one dose, even if a more expensive one.
This means that a dog (or child) who manages to get into your homeopathic kit, will only have one dose of the remedy they have managed to open, however much they take.
If the remedy is in a high potency (that prescribed by a homeopath, rather than in your first aid kit), it is possible there will be an unfavourable reaction. But never a life threatening one. And it will wear off quickly.
It’s not really dogs who will do this, it’s much more likely to be curious and energetic puppies. Dogs mostly are savvy and know when something is harmful.
While on the subject of poisonous things a dog can ingest, I’m amazed at some of the items ‘out there’ that are deemed poisonous.
Avocado. This mystifies me the most.
I’m lynched each time I have an avocado, which is frequently. I have to share mine with my cats and dogs. They never let me get away without this. Yet they don’t pester me for anything else. And they are well fed, a wholesome diet.
Grapes, raisins, etc.
My dogs and cats insist I share my raisins with them. Admittedly they are certified organic and contain no preservatives. However, grapes are sprayed with some pretty toxic pesticides, so if they are dangerous to dogs, they will be to you, too. However, one of my dogs loved the grapes I bought (non organic) and she lived til 14.
Onions, garlic. This mystifies me too.
I often put fresh garlic in my pets food. It is a natural pesticide and immune booster. They probably wouldn’t eat it whole and fresh, any more than they will eat onion, but certainly there is no toxic effect.
Cat food. ?
Cat food is generally of a slightly better quality, even the commercial brands, because it contains higher protein levels.
This is a normal, natural and vital food for dogs, AS LONG AS IT IS RAW. Cooked bones can be a problem, so should never be given.
The really odd thing is that these sites (often veterinary sites) who warn you not to feed your dog all these healthy and natural foods ENCOURAGE you to feed the worst food of all – commercial pet food. And to use the toxic (which contain nerve gas ingredients) flea and worm preparations. And, of course, the vaccines with their toxic ingredients (mercury, aluminium, squalene, formaldehyde…).
