Homeopathic Remedies for Dogs by Geoffrey Llewellyn

Homeopathic Remedies for Dogs by Geoffrey Llewellyn

Diarrhea is not a word that anyone likes to associate with their dog, particularly a big dog. Last week we had a very bad wind storm where I live. In fact, I’ve never heard the wind so loud. It really made me nervous and I spent most of the night panting on the bathroom floor. The next morning I woke up with diarrhea. Yuck! Kim had a feeling I was upset from the wind the night before (she’s so smart). Since I had not had a change in what I was eating that day, she decided a homeopathic treatment was in order. Kim uses homeopathy on our whole family..humans, dog, cat..even the guinea pigs. She got out one of her favorite books for dogs, Homeopathic Remedies for Dogs (Gb-046). Kim says this is an easy book to understand for people just starting out in homeopathy for dogs. The kids love all the amusing cartoon images of dogs found throughout the book. Kim looked for a homeopathic remedy for diarrhea that was caused by fear. She found Gelsemium Sempervirens 30C, which is to be used when diarrhea is associated with fear or excitement. She gave me a human dose of 30c. She also fed me about a cup of plain white rice at my next meal. She repeated the dose of Gelsemium the next day. Diarrhea gone! There are many homeopathic remedies for diarrhea, depending on what symptoms your dog is exhibiting. Diarrhea can be very serious and if it continues, a trip to the vet may be necessary. For health matters that are not life threatening, Kim usually likes to try homeopathy first. Another great book for homeopathy with dogs is Dr. Pitcairn’s New Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs and Cats. For beginning homeopathy kits, check out the ones I have listed on my web site’s Holistic Pet Treatments page. We have a kit at home like the HomeoFamily Kit By Boiron [1 Kit (32 single medicine tubes in 30c potency)] which is a great way to get started in homeopathy. Remember all the remedies can be used on your humans too! My humans haven’t had the flu in three years thanks to their homeopathic flu treatment. The great thing about homeopathy is there are no side effects and it can be used with a conventional treatment from your vet. You can’t take too much of it, so there is no chance you’ll accidently overdose your pet. All the remedies are natural. I’m just glad there’s no more diarrhea!
