Based on remedies created from pure, natural substances, homeopathy can be used to help treat or prevent a range of health conditions in pets, including allergic reactions, chronic disease, and anxiety. It is sometimes used in conjunction with acupuncture and chiropractic therapy. Derived from the Greek words homoios, which means like or similar, and pathos, which means suffering (disease), homeopathy is based on the philosophy that “like cures like.” Homeopathy uses very dilute solutions (extremely small quantities) of medication that, in an undiluted form, can actually cause symptoms of the disease or condition. Because these remedies are highly diluted, they are generally considered safe and unlikely to cause severe adverse reactions. Although many traditional veterinary clinics do not typically use homeopathy, we find that it works well in conjunction with conventional veterinary treatment.
