Why does it matter whether symptoms are considered common or normal in dogs and cats?

“Harmony in life and living, homeopathy for health and healing”sm

In order to maintain our animal companions in optimal health, it is extremely important to understand the distinction between "common" and "normal".

When the body is in a state of optimal health, all systems are in equilibrium and no external manifestations of disequilibrium (i.e., symptoms) are apparent.

Many of the subtle changes we observe in our pets are early warning signs that there is imbalance deep within the body. These are not “diseases” per se, but rather commonly observed deviations from this state of equilibrium.

Recognizing and treating these common, but abnormal, early warning signs is critical to preventing more serious problems in the future.

Some of these symptoms are as follows:

  • runny or red eyes
  • intermittent loose stools
  • ”sensitive" stomach with vomiting, diarrhea and/or other gastrointestinal symptoms
  • straining to defecate
  • excess thirst
  • runny nose
  • red eyes
  • red ears
  • excess ear wax
  • picky or excessive appetite
  • fearfulness
  • thin coat/excess shedding
  • intermittent vomiting
  • •eating stool/dirt/plastic
  • gassiness
  • gum redness
  • frequent or difficult urination
  • loss of pigment
  • rough, dry nose or pads
  • stiffness
  • ear “infections”
  • anxiety
  • anal sac problems

If your pet has shown any of these symptoms and you would like to discuss treatment options, please submit the new patient or client questionnaire and then call me at 203.222.7979 to set up a consultation. You can also read the introduction to my practice by clicking here:
