Here are some of my favourite Homeopathic Remedies for Dogs.
You can treat your own animals with homeopathy to help alleviate fears, anxieties, physical symptoms. You can help optimise your dog's health with natural homeopathic medicines.
Here are my TOP 16 Remedies.
The homeopathic kits provide remedies in 30c - this is a good potency to buy to have in your cupboard for emergencies. Only give one pillule. Repeat after an hour if required.
Most remedies are given when symptoms occur but there are a few exceptions. Give the right remedy before the event - if your dog is scared or nervous of something which you know is about to happen or if you are going to leave them and you know they will get upset by your departure.
For any symptom that is older than a month or a recurring symptom you should seek advice from a professional so that the cause of the issue can be treated. Self prescribing is suitable for first aid situations. It is not instead of the vet - If your dog needs emergency treatment then go to your vet immediately.
