One of the interesting things about homeopathy is that it can have great results in animals. Sceptics often use the argument that homeopathic treatment works because it is all in the mind of the patient. It would be hard to apply this argument to your pet cat or dog!
Conditions often seen
A pilot study published by the BHA in 2007 found that the conditions most commonly seen by homeopathic vets are arthritis, atopic dermatitis, lameness, epilepsy, diarrhoea, aggression, fear, pruritus, hyperthyroid and kidney failure. Patients were predominantly cats and dogs, but horses and some other smaller animals were also present in the study.
According to owners, 80% of animals taking part in the study improved (from a total of 767 pets).
