 Homeopathy for pets

 We do not have all the space or time to fully address all aspects and benefits of using homeopathy to treat your pets but no differently than using homeopathy to treat yourselves or your family, the natural way can be the most complimentary, convinient and least harmful manner of medication. Remember it was sheep grazing on the alpine slopes we first saw seek out Arnica Montana to heal grazes and swelling. Nature will always find a way. For every action there is a reaction and homeopathy simulates this. 


Our pets have smaller internal organs than ours and have to work much harder to combat many of the toxic compounds found in pharmaceutical drugs, which often have many an adverse reaction on our pets. Far too often large and long doses of antibiotics are prescribed to treat problems that could have easily been combated using homeopathy.

You can use soft tablets to treat your pets which you simply slip under the tounge and will


dissolve before your pet has chance to spit it out [remember as with humans do not mix soft tablets in with food or water they must be handled as little as possible and placed directly in to the mouth]

 Below we have drawn up a guideline to different remedies you may find useful in treating your pets. If you have an animal in your care that is seriously ill or injured you should seek advice from a veterinary surgeon then if required you can use a homeopathic remedy to treat your pets soley or alongside another treatment your vet may prescribe.  

To help you in determining which homeopathic remedy to use to treat your pet observe his behaviour carefully before hand and take all aspects into consideration. Remember once improvement is seen you should cease use of the remedy.  

Breeders may benefit from keeping certain remedies in stock at all times, if you are a breeder of cats, dogs, horses or any other animals I recommend ordering one of our homeopathic kits for pets [see our store]. Should you wish to order several individual remedies at once please email us to enquire as to whether you can set up a breeder account as we may be able to provide a special breeder discount.


What are nosodes ?


Nosodes are derived from zoological material it is a homeopathic remedy that is produced from diseased tissue and can be used to prevent infection in a household where animals may have been exposed to disease, prime examples are the cat flu nosode and Chlamydia nosode there is little evidence of nosode efficiency however I have spoken to many a breeder who have used nosodes as a preventative measure in multi animal dwellings and have been extremely happy with the results.

Unfortunately kidney disease is something we are seeing more frequently in these times are pets are living longer and being fed on processed diets that contain high levels of sugar, oil and salt. To keep your pets kidneys healthy nothing is netter than a natural diet, raw meat is the best thing you can feed your cat or dog you can buy raw meat ready prepared and tested for your pets from many suppliers and it can even work out much cheaper than commercially prepared pet food. With raw food you will see a difference in your pets, teeth and gums, coat and general immunity. Please find a list of raw suppliers at the bottom of this page.

Dogs are more susceptible to skin disease than cats. Fleas are a major cause of skin irritation and of course this problem can be resolved easily. Staphysagria in a 6x solution applied directly to the coat will help to illiminate fleas. Skin complaints caused by other problems can respond very well to homeopathy, it is one section of treatment where I have seen huge response. Unfortunately these days skin complaints are often prescribed huge courses of hormones and steroids by vets which have many terrible side effects and often leave the animal a lot worse off than it was originally the treatment prescribed can even aggravate the condition and cause great hair loss. If your pet has a skin condition we recommend seeking advice from a homeopathic vet to help you diagnose exactly what the problem is.

CLAMYDIA NOSODE    Infection, clamydia based [many eye infections in particular cats are clamydia based the vets will often prescribe antibiotic eye ointments that are intended to fight clamydia based infection] white, creamy discharge present the nosode will also help to strengthen the immune system and fight off the clamydia infection elsewhere in the body.


EUPHRASIA     Early stages of conjunctivititis


LEDUM   Scratch to lense or foreign object in eye





IODIUM   30c  Given daily will help to balance the glad function, when an extreme thirst, greasy unkept coat and exhaustion are present this remedy is particuarly useful if use alongside thyroidinum 30C for increased results or if no response to iodum is seen thyroidinum alone could be helpful.


NATMUR   30c      Advanced stages of the disease often respond well to Nat Mur





During pregnancy and after birth is a time where homeopathy can come in particularly useful for animals as well as humans. Homeopathic remedies can help to speed up and reduce pain and fear during labour and combat infection and trauma during and after birth. Mastitis I have found responds well to homeopathic remedies and can keep those babies suckling in situations where young may be lost as the teats can become too painful and infected to feed and as all breeders know animals stand a much better chance when being fed by mum than when  hand reared. Homeopathy can also be used to help ease melancholy for mum when babies leave home. 

ACONITE   200c     Tired and fearful animals will assist with pain also dose every thirty minutes or so until response is seen during labour


ARNICA 200c     A must for all births give before and after labour will reduce trauma, swelling, bruising and assist in healing after the birth, also helps to prevent infection.


BELLADONNA   30c      Acute mastitis sore, red teats, painful to the touch, give in the very first stages of the disease  dose every hour until response is seen if no response is seen try byronia. 

CAULOPHYLLUM   30c    Fantastic remedy to assist labour in animals, helps to strengthen contractions in second stage labour, if contractions are weaking and queen, bitch, mare is getting tired calendula is particularly helpful can also be useful with females you know have particularly difficult labours and smaller females when given twice daily for up to two weeks before labour.  

Can save unnecessary caesarean sections.


CARBO VEG   200c   A must for all breeders, carbo veg is known as the corpse reviver if kittens are born or found cold and not breathing simply dose every ten minutes for up to fourty minutes or so until response is seen I have used this myself and would describe as a miracle cure to aid revival.


IGNATIA   30c   Helps to reassure a mother who has lost a baby and when kittens, puppies etc go off to new homes. 


PYROGEN   200c   Helps to combat infections such as e-coli, can save fading babies 


PYTOLACCA   30c   Once mastitis has set in, hardened tissues, teats inflamed, painful to touch, if breast is hard to the touch and accompanied by a foul smell silica 30c can be most helpful, urtica will encourage milk flow


SECALE   12c    Retained placenta, fetal membranes, accompanied by infection, with offensive discharge 




Low levels of hormone will initiate a season in a female and high blood levels supress it. Folliculinum imitates this and low potencies will kick off a season or call in a female and high potencies will supress. This remedy can be useful for breeders who are waiting to mate an animal and animals that are difficult to get into season a 7c will often help to sustain a season, often useful when animals go away to stud. Just as higher potencies can be most helpful in animals that have repeated long seasons even quickly after birthing [siamese] need I say more]




ARNICA30c   Injury, arthritis and trauma, useful in aiding rheumatisim


LEDUM   30c   Arthritis and rheumatisim starting in the lower joints and rising up the limbs


RHUS TOX   6c   For joints that are swollen, painful, pain and discomfort in ligaments, for the animals aggravated when resting and improves during motion, byronia works in a similar way and can also be helpful in similar cases in the Rhus tox animal symptoms are worse on cold days and improve in the warmer weather.


RUTA   6c   Strains, sprains, ligaments, general weakness, animals who have become lame and limbs that have tired due to too much strain, aggravated by weather worse when damp.
