Natural Medicine and Nutrition for Pets

All animals know instinctively what herbs or plants they need when they are ill. A cat will eat grasses for internal cleansing and to help bring up fur balls, and other plants and herbs will rid an animal of intestinal parasites. Some animals thrive on toxic plants that kill others. Wild animals will fast when they are ill, and domestic ones may also need a rest from feeding when not well, and only pure water should be given. If the illness is prolongued, some honey may be added to the pure water to introduce some nutrients, or a liquid diet of milk and juices if fasting is inappropriate.

All domestic animals may need a little help when they are ill, as they no longer have access to the plants they need to keep them healthy. Natural medicines, such as homeopathy and flower essences, are safe and effective remedies to promote healing without any side effects.

The preferred method of administration is to add a few drops of the liquid remedy to drinking water. Some animals relish the sweet tablets and many animals have an instinctive attraction for the medicine in whatever form it is administered. For horses, the pills can be placed in an apple, and for cats and dogs placed in a piece of meat, or the liquid remedy may be poured over the food. For birds, the drops may be placed on bread or seeds.

Some of the many conditions that can be treated with homeopathics and flower essences:

  • Aggression/panic
  • Boredom
  • Depression
  • Fear
  • Excessive barking/over-excitability
  • Insecurity/house training
  • Restlessness
  • Allergies
  • Worms and fleas
  • Coat and skin conditions
  • Digestion
  • Arthritis

The remedies can be administered on a large scale in the field for cows, goats and sheep.

Vetinary Consultations

All domestic animals can be treated succesfully for a large range of physical conditions, as well as emotional states.

These days, our furry friends living in cities and suburbs are living in circumstances not according to their genetic coding and natural habitat, and are fed tinned food and chlorinated water. Lack of freedom and excercise along with inappropriate diet have ensured that our pets frequently suffer from degenerative diseases, skin problems and cancer.

Kinesiology using muscle biofeedback testing, allows to assess and redress any imbalance and is a natural, non-invasive and effective tool to promote vital health and longevity in our companions. Natural medicines such as homeopathics and herbs give fast relief from symptoms.

In a consultation, your pet’s general physical and emotional wellbeing will be assessed. Your pets may display emotional disturbances, readily discernable in its body language, such as aggressive or fearful behaviour. Show animals may display “stage fright”. Animals are also susceptable to stress, causing disease, especially if the stress recurs frequently or is prolongued, like feeling lonely or bored. As for humans, the diet is an important part of keeping vital and healthy, and healthy diet suggestions will be given. You will be asked to record the nature, texture and odour of the animals’ urine, faeces and any blood, pus or vomit. The discharges and bodily fluids give a precise insight into the internal changes in the animal arising from a diseased state.

Acupressure and electrical acupunture may be used succesfully for pain, chronic conditions, digestive disturbances, nerve injuries, allergies, respiratory diseases, distemper and feline leukemia, arthritis, lameness, nerve deafness, hip dysplasia and behavioural problems.

Other environmental issues discussed will be the amount of exercise needed (dogs), playtime and activities, grooming, bathing and parasite and flea control.
