Happy and Healthy Pets with Homeopathy
It is found that homoeopathy is effective for preventive, curative and supplementative purposes in veterinary treatment and management. It is also observed that homoeopathy is gaining acceptance rapidly for the veterinary treatment.
Recent studies reveals that having pets like dogs, cats, birds, etc., promotes the health of people especially cardiac patients, geriatric individuals, etc. But having a pet in ill health makes the condition still worse. Here I would like to share my little experience in treating pet animals.
Observation serves major role in treatment of pets. Pets are like little Babies. They cannot express their ill health by words. As observation plays major role in homoeopathic treatment of paediatric cases, does so in veterinary aspect too. There will be minute changes in behaviour and body language, which is veryimportant and plays major role.
- Love birds keep chirping when they are healthy and happy. But when they are in ill health or while they are scared, they will be calm and/or poorly active.
- Hamsters are usually hyperactive. But when they are sick especially due to some gastric affection, you can see them calm, sitting quietly. They prefer wet ground to rest their abdomen. They take water frequently and decrease the intake of food.
- Hamsters before they deliver, when the parturition is to start, they start approaching their caretakers and keep rubbing their abdomen. Once the pain starts, the parturition will start within a period of 15-30 minutes. If not, there is a need of some intervention medically.
Thus all minute changes in their behaviour and body language serve as some indicators.
Homeopathy for Pets*
Animals like cats, dogs, turtles, tortoises which are grown as pets requires calcium supplementation at least once in 2-3 weeks. Calcium is required for thickening and integrity of shell and bones. Biochemic tissue remedies can be used for this purpose too. Selection of the homeopathic remedy can be based on characteristic symptoms, causative factor or pathology, depending on the condition and availability of details.
Thus it is found homoeopathy is effective for preventive, curative and supplementative purposes in veterinary treatment and management. It is also observed that homoeopathy is gaining acceptance rapidly for the veterinary treatment. Many veterinary specialty clinics of homoeopathy have been established in various parts of world. This does not need any special training for any homoeopath. All that we need is just a keen observation and a strong will power to try it out.
