I wish more pet owners were offered this wonderful treatment option. There are dozens of great reasons to choose it for preventing and treating disease. Here are my top 10:
10) Hundreds Of Years Of Clinical Experience
9) Based On Scientific Framework vs. Conjecture...
Wild animals are commonly admitted for rehabilitation with health problems. Many of these conditions are a result of an injury, such as a fall, blow, or puncture. The animal may arrive in shock, dehydrated, emaciated, in respiratory distress, or having seizures. Wildlife rehabilitators provide quiet, heat, fluids and basic first aid - as well as effective rehabilitation care, such as appropriate diets and facilities. They work closely with veterinarians to ensure the animal gets the appropriate veterinary care.
Like many others in the last decade, wildlife rehabilitators have become more aware of and interested in alternatives to conventional medical practice. This does not mean that they are turning away from conventional veterinary care, but rather considering a wider range of options that might help their wild patients regain health and return to the wild more quickly. Many of these health care modalities, or approaches, are considered complementary to conventional western medicine. They include homeopathy, acupuncture, chiropractic, botanical (herbal) medicine, and flower essences.
Homeopathy has attracted especially high interest from the wildlife rehabilitation community. Homeopathy has been used widely and safely around the world for 200 years with people and domesticated animals. Many rehabilitators using homeopathic first aid with wildlife have found it to help the wild animals recover and be released more quickly. It is relatively inexpensive and easy to administer. Classical homeopathy is also very different from medical practices that most North Americans are familiar. It takes study and special resources to effectively use this powerful and complex modality.
Rehabilitators interested in using homeopathic first aid with wildlife are encouraged to become familiar with and follow basic homeopathic principles. They are also encouraged to consult with a homeopathic veterinarian. While homeopathy may be used safely, it should not be considered a ‘quick and easy fix’ or used to the exclusion of veterinary care.

This extremely informative, well-researched and very well-produced movie should be seen by everyone.
While working in a molecular biology lab almost twenty-eight years ago I learned how sensitive animal cells are to dose.
A 6 yr old, male, neutered Weimaraner was treated homeopathically for nasal aspergillosis after failing to respond to two treatments of topical (intranasal) clotrimazole and oral amoxicillin trihydrate/clavulanate potassium.
This topic occurred to me at a point when there was the rather frequent comparison of homeopathy to allopathy in terms of whether or not homeopathy was scientific medicine and I realized that the whole discussion was upside down. It is actually homeopathy that is closest to being scientific and almost all other forms of medicine are not (though there would be strenuous objections to that statement).
Animals that have been hit by a car, or kicked by a horse, or fallen from a height, will often respond beautifully to the homeopathic remedy Arnica montana. If your animal is ever injured you can give a dose of Arnica 30c by mouth and see the rapid improvement that follows.
