Animal Homeopathy

homeopathy-1Homeopathy was founded by Samual Hahnemann in 1790. The word itself comes from the Greek words for ‘like’ and ‘suffering’. The principle of homeopathy is that ‘like cures like’ – that giving a very small taste of the disease stimulates the body to heal itself.

Homeopathy works on restoring the body’s natural balance to bring about a complete healing or resolution of the condition. In homeopathy, disease is held to be the body’s ‘lack of ease’ or balance. Homeopathic remedies simply direct the body back to balance and a return to health. If the correct remedy is chosen the results can be startling.

Homeopathic remedies are made from ingredients of animal, vegetable or mineral origin. They are prepared by a qualified practitioner through a process of sequential dilution and vigorous shaking. They are energised therapeutic tools that match symptoms of the patient with the symptoms of the remedy. In the homeopathic care of animals, a diluted substance is given via the mouth or in drinking water.

Homeopathy is completely safe, is non-toxic and has no side effects.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What do I need to do if I require a Homeopathic Consult for my animal?

    Contact Belinda Atkinson by phone or email and she will send you a Health Assessment form for you to fill in for your animals Homeopathic Consult. This form includes details about your animal & it’s condition. It also includes questions about your animals current symptoms, as the more details Belinda has to work with the more accurately the correct Homeopathic remedy can be chosen. Return filled in form back to Belinda with payment for consult.

  • Why are details of my animal symptoms needed for my consult?

    Homeopathic remedies have their own ‘symptom picture’ and the Homeopath needs to work out the best remedy that suits the individual animals symptoms. Several animals with the same disease may have completely different symptoms, therefore requiring different remedies or potency.

  • How do I administer the Homeopathic drops to my Animal?

    When you are sent your Homeopathic Kit (included in your consult) you will receive an instruction sheet on how & when to give your animal the Homeopathic drops. Your kit will include a mixing jar, springwater & small syringe. The Homeopathic drops can be given via the mouth, in the drinking water or on a small piece of food (however best results achieved, if given away from food).

  • Can I give Homeopathics if my animal is on cortisone drugs?

    If your animal is on a drug containing cortisone eg; Bute, it will need to finish the course or stop giving the drugs 3-4 days before starting the Homeopathic drops. For the reason that the cortisone may block the action of the Homeopathic remedy working, as cortisone stops the bodies healing processes. Homeopathics can be given with other drugs.

  • Are Homeopathic Remedies swabable in racehorse etc?

    No. Homeopathic remidies are completely safe for all animals and will not swab in prefomance or show animals or racehorses. Homeopathic remedies are very dilute substances which are prepared by potentising & succussing to release a very powerful energetic healing force. They are completely safe and non-toxic.

  • Is a diagnosis required before a Homeopathic consult?

    Not in all cases, minor health issues can be addressed without a diagnosis by using the animal’s individual symptoms. If a diagnosis is required for your animals condition it is essential for all serious animal health problems to consult your veterinarian.

What our customers say

“I am very happy with the quick results for my horse, who was lame from swelling and heat in his leg. I would recommend your services to other animal owners.”

Kylee Alan –  Homeopathic Home Consult – Client
Retreat, Tasmania

“Thank you for helping our dog, Honey with her skin condition. The improvement in such a short time has been absolutely amazing. Your prescribed drops were finished about a week ago, but we are continuing with Omega 3 Liquid and Ionic Silver in her nightly feeds. All the angry inflammation and itching has subsided and I am hoping that the redness, which is now more a pale pink, will continue to disappear over time. It is hardly noticeable now. Thanks so much again for all your help.”

Julia Vana
Homeopathic Consult Client

“On behalf of my mare “Adi-Amon Ishika”, thank you, she is just doing beautifully (fully recovered from her laminitis). You were my last hope and truthfully having tried everything else, vets, chiros, I did not think homeopathy would work. But once again, thank you (it did work fast). If I hear of anybody having a problem with founder I will be sending them straight to you.”

Diana Chapman, South Australia
Homeopathic Phone Consult – Client

“Thanks Belinda, Phoebe and the other dog are having huge plays, which I have not seen Phoebe do for a long time. We all send you blessings and thanks. While I am enormously grateful for her improvement/cure I have to say she and the younger dog are wrecking the place as Phoebe is obviously pain and stiffness free and will now not only engage but initiate big rough and tumble and tug of war games with the younger dog. This is great as she is now exercising the leg and hips (the vet was concerned re long term wasting of muscles). Thank you so much for Phoebes obvious improved and wellbeing.”

Megan Handly, Hobart
Homeopathic Phone Consult – Client

“I am extremely happy with Belinda’s prescribed homeopathic remedies and how great they work on my animals. Belinda always offers advice and suggests natural solutions to my animals’ problems. I like the fact that I can always contact Belinda quicker than the vet! I have grateful pets that are thankful for Belinda’s advice, products and services. I highly recommend her services.”
