Veterinary homeopathy has been in use for about two hundred years, since it was devised and given to the world by German physician Samuel Hahnemann (1755 - 1843). The AVMC has been using it since 1987 but homeopathic vet Christopher Day, founder and practice pricincipal, has used it in veterinary practice for more than 40 years and, on himself, for much longer than that.
Veterinary homeopathy uses identical principles to those used by its human counterpart. It is the treatment of 'like with like', using for medicines to cure disease substances which provoke similar signs and symptoms in a healthy body to those seen in the disease.
Homeopathy is a gentle and effective form of therapy, whose use is quite without the risk of toxicity or side-effects (adverse reaction). It is extremely capable of handling first-aid situations, acute disease, infectious diseases and, those most difficult of all diseases, the chronic diseases, which modern drugs at best hope to palliate.
Homeopathy is a form of holistic medicine and a form of energy medicine. Its usual medicines are extremely dilute, being prepared by a method of dilution and succussion which removes the pharmacologically-active and potentially dangerous material and enhances the energy of the medicine. It is this process which makes it impossible for many in the medical professions to comprehend homeopathy, who then reject it rather than observe its results (an example of ongoing and developing outcome analysis has been published on the AVMC's major website: http://www.alternativevet.org/outcomeanalysis.htm). True science first observes, before formulating theories or passing judgement. The results speak for themselves.
Veterinary Homeopathy is commonly called upon to treat those cases which have stubbornly refused to yield to the administration of conventional medication, i.e. chronic skin complaints, chronic diarrhoea, arthritis, epilepsy (canine epilepsy), CDRM, head shaking (head-shaking or headshaking), COPD, navicular disease, spondylosis, cancer, behavioural problems, sarcoids, laminitis, allergy, atopy, corneal ulceration, irritable bowel syndrome, colitis, chronic ear problems, auto-immune (autoimmune) diseases, pyoderma, eczema, periodic ophthalmia (moonblindness, moon blindness, recurrent uveitis or recurrent ophthalmia), dry eye (keratitis sicca), sweet itch (sweetitch), mud fever, eosinophilic myositis, eosinophilic granuloma, rodent ulcer, paralysis, aortic embolism, sinusitis,chorea (shaker syndrome), pedal ostitis, otitis media, otitis externa, vestibular syndrome etc.
Homeopathy is used equally successfully in all species of animal, whether equine, pet, farm animal, exotic animal or wild species. Its most common applications are, of course, horse homeopathy, pony homeopathy, dog homeopathy and cat homeopathy.
In farm medicine, it is commonly and very successfully used in organic enterprises, where the use of modern drugs is not only disliked by the consumer but invites large penalties to the producer. The AVMC has run successful medical programmes, even on conventional farms, using homeopathy alone. A major attraction for homeopathy is that it cannot and does not stimulate antibiotic resistance in bacterial populations, such as is always a risk of antibiotic therapy, with the inevitable hazard to the consumer.
N.B.: We cannot treat notifiable diseases in the UK without official dispensation from DEFRA.
