In homeopathy, as mentioned before, there is no one specific treatment for any one particular kind of ailment. Two cats suffering from asthma, for example, will not necessarily be treated with the same medicine.
A homeopathy veterinarian, after a thorough clinical examination of the patient will discover and record everything visible. Subsequently, a full history of the animal’s pathology, behaviour and habits will be noted by the veterinarian.
Using the information regarding the way in which the patient is suffering, the veterinarian will decide on the medication to be prescribed. The medication aims to heal the animal as a whole and not to relieve just some of the symptoms.
In order to expound on the previous example, the two asthmatic cat patients who suffer in their own unique way, need different medication. The reason being one of them is aggravated by humidity while the other is aggravated by warm weather.
Also, most probably the first needs to be stroked and cuddled, while the second one prefers to be alone. These two animals will receive different medication in homeopathy, while, in Western medicine they would probably have the same treatment.
In this way with homeopathy, patients are treated holistically, no matter what the disease (acute or chronic):
- Self – immune diseases
- Epileptic seizures
- Urine or faecal incontinence
- Bleeding disorders
- and many others.
In acute cases, the homeopathic veterinarian records the illness history and examines the animal clinically to spot the specific symptoms. These when considered with the cause e.g. injury, epidemic, poisoning, spoiled food consumption etc, the homeopathic veterinarian will be able to select the correct medicine.
