Homeopathy for dogs is little different from that for any other animal, including the human animal. The only difference is that most of us have to work on objective symptoms rather than subjective as with humans. Few of us can hear what a dog is truly saying.
To some extent this does limit our capacity. But if we employ other tactics that enhance our ability to understand what dogs are trying to tell us, then we have as good a chance of successfully treating dogs, as we do with humans.
Homeopathic treatment has no species boundaries. Neither does it have kingdom boundaries. Homeopathy can be used successfully on any animal and any plant. What matters is that the symptoms that show a disturbance from natural good health, must be matched to the appropriate homeopathic remedy.
But the skill doesn’t end there. You also need to know what potency (strength) to use and what dosage. These vary considerably depending on the health of your dog, the condition in question, how long they have had it, the urgency of the condition and so forth.
Homeopathic treatment is a highly skilled method of health care. Ask any true homeopath and they will tell you that they really need a life time to be any good at their chosen profession. Maybe more than one.
This indicates the potential depth of homeopathic treatment. There is no condition that cannot be successfully treated. Homeopathy for dogs is as deep and far reaching as it is for anyone.
I was recently told of a dog who had been run over. This dog had been taken to a vet who had indicated that he would recover. He was also given a homeopathic complex (mix of remedies) suggested by a health shop sales assistant.
The dog did not recover, but got worse and was finally euthanised.
Whilst no one is in a position to foretell what would have happened had a different approach been taken, the following are my thoughts on the condition, based on my experience and observations.
The dog was moved. This is not a good idea. Instead, it is better to leave the dog at the scene of the accident if at all possible. As this occurred at the dog’s home, this was possible.
Even if the chosen therapist cannot come to the dog’s aid immediately, in most cases, this still offers the best prognosis as the healing powers of every body are remarkable. All you have to do is to allow them time to work.
Having a home prescribing homeopathic kit means that you can be advised on the phone to a homeopathic practitioner, which one to give, as well as when. In every good kit are remedies which help with shock and injuries. These are the most important at such a time.
It is quite possible that with these measures alone, the dog would have recovered. In any event, they would have got the dog off to a great start in his treatment. Any subsequent treatment would also have had a much better prognosis.
Relying on a sales assistant to give an accurate match of a homeopathic remedy to a dog’s complicated health issue is inviting disaster. The sales assistant may have had every intention of helping. But it is hardly the same as asking for the help of a qualified homeopath, who has had years of training and experience.
Homeopathy for dogs isn’t limited to emergencies or accidents. The homeopathic treatment for chronic disease is, I suggest, second to none. But this is best left to the skills of a professional homeopath.
By learning how to use some of the common homeopathic remedies, and by having a home prescribing kit at hand, as well as a professional homeopath, you can avoid disasters such as the one mentioned above. Your new skills can be used on all of your family members, whether two legged or four. Disasters can be avoided.
