The majority of people don’t understand health or what different health professionals offer. This article explores how homeopathy can help your dog. To do that, there does have to be a measure of comparison with what people are familiar with, ie the medical ways, which has so invaded consciousness.
How Wild Dogs Live
To start with, we need to go back to how wild dogs live. Wild dogs have a strong pack bond. The young and the weak are cared for by other members. Even food can be brought back to them, by regurgitation.
As hunts can be dangerous, only the healthy, skilled and fit are permitted on them. The others have to remain at home and wait.
A hunt is carried out with precision and complete compliance and understanding from all. Each have their own role to play, not unlike a group sports game such as hockey or rugby.
The alpha pair will be in charge of the most dangerous part of the hunt, the kill, with experienced members supporting them.
Then the pack comes into the feed in order of their rank, with the alpha pair first and the puppies last (if the kill is close enough to home).
Wild dogs suffer little in the way of diseases so common in domestic dogs because their life style and diet are in perfect accordance with their needs. The only real problems they will suffer are likely to be injury (which is why only the highly skilled are on the hunt) and lack of food when it’s scarce.
When food is scarce, such as the winter months or when the prey herds migrate to warmer climes or greener pastures, dogs can happily survive on carrion, root vegetables, berries and small prey, even worms. They may not survive for long on that diet, but they can for the months before the herds return.
Domestic Dogs Are Wild At Heart
All domestic dogs have this inherent way of life at their core, whatever humans have bred them to look like. Most (except those with the squashed noses) dogs can adapt and breed in a feral life.
So, to help domestic dogs be as healthy as their wild cousins, we need to look to the wild dogs for clues.
The diet is key to keeping dogs healthy. A quality diet of raw meat and bones can keep dogs healthy all their lives. It prevents disease by ensuring the immune system is strong. And that’s the most important part of anyone’s health – the immune system. And you don’t get that from the point of a needle.
Lifestyle is another key factor in maintaining good health and a strong immune system. Dogs need to feel part of a pack – the family. They need to know their position in the pack – in their terms, not ours. They need exercise. And they need to feel loved, respected and cared for.
How Homeopathy Can Help Your Dog
Healthy puppies from healthy parents, always fed a quality raw diet, never received vet meds, in a loving family who understand dogs need, tend to live healthy and long lives. Breeders on the holistic path document this regularly.
But there are few of these dogs about.
Whilst the diet will help to make big strides in a dogs return to good health, undoing some of the previous harm needs a therapy that is able to do this and a therapist who guides you.
A professional homeopath is needed to guide you through the blocks that have created problems. This is not something that you can do yourself. Chronic diseases, rare diseases, auto immune diseases in dogs are largely manmade and need someone who can recognise which they are and how to rectify them. Resorting to veterinary drugs simply suppresses the symptoms and further damages the immune system.
It’s good to know that you are absolutely in control of how healthy your dog is – from the diet, to the life style, the training as well as the health care. As a bonus, none of this is expensive. Discovering how homeopathy can help your dog is just the start of the journey, one where you’ll learn and grow and feel so empowered.
