Homeopathy is an alternative therapy option that is based on the theory that the very substances which cause illness in the body, when used properly, can also counteract those same symptoms.
In fact, the word homeopathy literally means “to treat with a similar disease”.
Homeopathic medicine uses all natural ingredients to help strengthen the body’s ability to fight off illness and restore a sense of balance throughout. It is particularly effective in managing chronic medical conditions to improve the patient’s overall quality of life. And because homeopathy does not include the use of pharmaceuticals, it can be used safely on most pets, including those that are sensitive to medication.
Homeopathic medicine can be used to address a variety of conditions, both acute and chronic. These ailments may include, but are not limited to:
Homeopathic medicine, when not prescribed and administered properly, could produce side effects or a worsening of the initial problem. This is why it’s so important to work only with a Bend area vet that is trained and experienced in homeopathy. This will ensure that your pet receives the correct remedy and in the appropriate manner for optimal results.
The homeopathic medicine available at Westside Pet Hospital can be used as standalone treatment, or in conjunction with our traditional Western medical services. Your pet’s individual situation will be carefully considered when we are developing our treatment recommendation.
