Homeopathic remedies such as arnica can be successfully used on our pets to treat common ailments. This can be a nice alternative to veterinary drugs and can sometimes treat ailments that vets are unable to address.
The basic concept of homeopathy is to use exceedingly diluted therapeutic solutions, which makes homeopathic remedies safer than many home cures while still offering many pet owners effective cures to infections, chronic ailments, and as general health tonics for their pets.
Home Remedies: Homeopathy can offer alternative therapies for vaccinations, heart health, arthritic pets, hot spots, and other health impairments.

[QUESTION] 11/06/2010: Chrylrx from Santa Clarita, Ca: "Our 10 year old Dalmatian mix has recently been diagnosed with megaesophagus and I was wondering if anyone knew of a homeopathic and/or natural way to treat this problem? Any help you can give would be appreciated. We have built her the Bailey chair to eat in and that has helped tremendously but if there is anything else to help her I'd love to know. Thanks!"
03/02/2010: Robert from Martinez, Ca, Usa: "I used various homeopathic remedies for pet ailments & there are few Vets who include this in their practise.This would disprove the belief of allopathy that it is fraud as animals are not so influenced by suggestion as humans.Info on homeopathy is widely available on the net & can have amazing results with no adverse side effects. Remember the 'rule' for homeopathy is not more is better. One tablet is as effective as more than one, so you can save money by this 'rule'."Replies
