The homeopathic consultation process is more complex than the usual veterinary consultation. It can take a long time, depending upon the complaint from which the patient suffers. It involves the homeopathic vet discovering a great deal of information, not just from clinical examination but also from the owner. Likely questions may include details of background, lifestyle, environment, demeanour, character, likes, dislikes, fears, diet, household & family details and responses to various external influences.
In individual animals, many chronic and refractory diseases can respond to homeopathic treatment. Homeopathy is a gentle yet powerful form of therapy, without side-effects, which can just as easily treat dogs, cats, horses, donkeys, goats, llamas, cattle, pigs, sheep as such sensitive species as birds and cage pets, wholly without risk of side effects or idiosyncratic adverse reactions.
Homeopathy, far from being a weird system of esoteric medicine, has become accepted practice and its use is increasing rapidly, as people realise what it has to offer, whether as a ´first-aid´, ´first-line´ or ´last resort´ medicine. Skin disease, arthritis, auto-immune disorders, bowel disease, epilepsy, heart problems and behavioural conditions are frequent callers but many other diseases respond. Our veterinary surgeons advocate the use of complimentary treatments and where appropriate will refer clients to Siobhan Menzies BVM&S MRCVS LFHom.
