HOMEOPATHY FOR PETS
Sunday, January 03, 2010
WHY CHOOSE HOMEOPATHY?
Homeopathy provides a safe, effective, natural, non-toxic treatment for many acute and chronic illnesses. Homeopathic medicines consist of natural substances that are gentle yet extremely effective, often achieving rapid results without side effects or suppression of symptoms.
Prescriptions for these medicines are individualized. For instance, ten different pets suffering from allergies are each likely to need a different homeopathic medicine. The medicines are inexpensive. They address not only an individual's physical complaints but also work on a mental and emotional level, treating the “whole pet”, including any mental or emotional core issues (the often invisible inner forces that drive symptoms to appear.)
INDIVIDUALITY AND LAW OF SIMILARS
Each pet is an individual and reacts to the events and challenges of life in a unique way. The medicine that can restore balance and harmony to one pet will not necessarily promote a similar deep healing response in another.
Homeopathic medicines are prescribed according to the 'Law of Similars', a concept dating back over five thousand years to medical texts from China and India. Hippocrates referred to the same idea in 400 B.C. 'That which makes sick, shall heal.' This means that the same substance that can cause a particular set of symptoms in a healthy pet can cure the same or similar symptoms in a pet that is ill.
HOMEOPATHY TREATS THE PET, NOT THE DISEASE
All of your pet's symptoms, taken together form a network of clues that reveal a unique pattern of disharmony that can be treated with a single homeopathic medicine. The root of this disharmony is frequently found at the level of perception, and can he accessed by observing mental/emotional demeanor as well as behavior when alone or when interacting with others. How a pet perceives his life exerts a strong influence on the strategies he adopts in order to survive each day. If these coping mechanisms become out of sync with his internal reality and/or his external environment, “disease” symptoms begin to appear.
STIMULATE VERSUS ELIMINATE
Conventional medicine focuses on controlling the symptoms of a disease. Homeopathy views symptoms as distinct signs that the body creates in an attempt to heal itself of more deeply rooted imbalances, both physical and perceptual. A homeopathic medicine acts as a catalyst that will enhance the body's efforts, thus stimulating a renewed inner state of balance and well being. When this rebalancing of inner forces occurs, the pet's symptoms automatically improve at every level.
YOUR PET'S VITAL FORCE DOES THE WORK
Homeopaths use the term 'vital force' to describe the dynamic intelligence that fuels and directs the healthy functioning of each pet at all levels of their life experience. This image has historical significance in many systems of medicine, and is called by many names - Qi, Prana, Mana - depending on the particular culture or tradition. A correctly chosen homeopathic medicine stimulates the pet's vital force in such a way that it begins the healing of its own systems - mental, emotional, as well as physical.
COMMONLY TREATED CONDITIONS:

If you would like a homeopathic visit for your pet, please telephone me at the clinic (941) 926 9082. A House call appointment usually requires two hours, giving me the opportunity to take a careful history and directly observe how your pet experiences life on his/her home turf.
