Top 10 Homeopathics for your pets

Homeopathic remedies are safe, gentle, affordable. They can be bought at your local health food store and the medicines last for many years even after being opened.

What is Homeopathy?

Homeopathy is a system of therapeutics that was developed at the end of the 17th century by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, a German physician. Homeopathy believes that using extremely minute diluted amounts of plants and minerals can help the body repair itself by promoting healing.

Dr. Hahnemann believed in the natural law of healing — “similia similibus curantur” or “likes are cured by likes.”

Critics of homeopathy suggest that any results or outcomes are due to the placebo effect, but I feel that theory doesn’t explain why animals respond so well to homeopathy.


Why does Homeopathy differ from conventional medicine?

In order to make a homeopathic medicine, a chosen substance is mixed with alcohol to create a “mother tincture” which represents the starting point. Water is used to dilute the mother tincture in a sequence that is carried out with mathematical precision, each stage of this sequencing accompanied by a vigorous shaking of the solution – potentization. The resulting effect is an imprinting of the substance’s vital energy onto the matrix of the water solution. The “higher” the dilution the less material particles remain. The number accompanying each homeopathic remedy followed by a roman numeral (X, C or M) indicates the number of times that a substance has been through the dilution and potentization process.

This number notes how removed it is from its crude origins; the lower more physical doses are the X potencies, the higher energetic potencies the C scale and the vibrationally higher still the M. Hence the further away from its original state, the more the release of energy and the greater the depth at which the medicine will act. So, basically homeopathy differs from conventional medicine because we are dealing with physics; energy, frequency and vibration.

How does Homeopathy work?

Basically, homeopathy works by stimulating the body’s own natural healing capacity.
Of course, this is a very simplified explanation – the theory and philosophy of homeopathy is far more complex. But, when it comes to homeopathy for pets, that’s really what you need to know to start.

How To Give Your Dog A Homeopathic Remedy

Wet Dosing

Place 2-3 pellets  in a small glass of  filtered water.  Stir vigorously about 10 times.
A single dose is a teaspoon or a dropperful. Make sure the liquid is on the gums for as long as possible. 


You can keep it on your counter for 2 or 3 days. Stir vigorously, shake or succuss it before each dose.

Dry Dosing

 Give 2-3 pellets any size pet.  
Except in an emergency, give the remedy at least 20 minutes away from food. So it’s best not to try to hide the remedies in food or treats.
Homeopathic remedies need to contact the mucus membranes … meaning your pet’s gums or in the jowls.
