Lovely news – Golden Retriever patient

I received this letter today: This is what makes the world go round and makes our lives at AVMC worthwhile. It is lovely to receive such reports. Above all, Becky’s story and many others teach us never to give up faith in our dogs’ healing capability. Before anyone says ‘but homeopathy did that, not the dog’, we should remember that homeopathy only provides the stimulus, the patient does the job. (By the way, the image is not of Becky).

Becky – Golden Retriever

“I am so grateful for all the help with Becky’s health since I came in May 2010 (prior t that you had supplied nosodes as an alternative to vaccination).

I was not too positive at the time as she had been diagnosed with both incontinence and arthritis of the spine. Her vet had given a pessimistic outlook with an increasing lack of mobility. The thought of her having long-term prescription drugs for the incontinence did not appeal to me, as she was only 11 at the time.

Your prescription greatly assisted with the incontinence which later disappeared (with a combination of the homeopathy and an ever-decreasing dose of the prescription drug).

The homeopathic pills prescribed for her mobility problems made an immediate and very noticeable improvement and she has had a good and apparently pain-free life since that time, enjoying walks, holidays, visits to relatives etc. She also received many compliments from strangers who all thought she was a  much younger dog and about how well she looked.

Becky is always happy to take her homeopathic pills, unlike the ‘other medicines’.

Early this year (2012), she was diagnosed with liver disease and or a tumour. This seemed to me a very depressing outlook and I once again called on your help. You were most encouraging and prescribed homeopathic pills for the liver problems, reviewed her other pills and suggested I should continue with some of them for her mobility. We recently increased these and this again made an immediate difference, with her mobility increasing again and her legs becoming much stronger again.

Although I obviously cannot see what is going on internally, I have noticed that externally all the little bumps and cysts that she had have disappeared.

She enjoyed another holiday this year in Somerset, in October, and continues to get very positive comments about how well she looks (now aged 13+). Thank you.

Homeopathic First-Aid for Animals

Our series of first-aid medicines is growing, over at www.facebook.com/AVMC.UK.

We have now reached medicine number 24 out of the planned 40.

HOMEOPATHIC FIRST-AID MEDICINES

24 – HYPERICUM (Hypericum perforatum)

(2nd Edition)

Prepared from the St Johns Wort plant.

Hypericum perforatum - St Johns WortHypericum’s main claim to fame, in first-aid application, is in the treatment of injury to nerves or injury to regions of the body rich in nerve endings (e.g. tail, digits, ear flaps). Typically, the pain is very intense and responds rapidly to a few doses of Hypericum. The medicine also appears to stimulate the healing of nerve damage. Typical veterinary scenarios are someone stepping upon a puppy’s toes, shutting a dog’s tail in a car door or injury to toes by abrasion.

Painful lacerations, grazes and excoriations also appear to become less painful almost immediately upon dosing with Hypericum.

In herbivore’s eating live St Johns Wort can damage the liver, leading to a condition called photosensitisation, in which white or pink skin can be burned (sometimes severely) even in subdued sunlight. Homeopathic Hypericum can bring about rapid relief from the consequent pain and appears to stimulate more rapid healing and resolution.

Recommended homeopathic potency: 6c or 30c. The frequency of dosing will depend upon the situation and upon the responses. Hypericum lotion is also available, to enable topical bathing of affected areas. The lotion is sometimes mixed with Calendula lotion.

The horse

The horse is a magnificent and wild creature, yet serves mankind so well and so remarkably willingly. This is even more surprising when you think how many work with ill-fitting saddles, ill-fitted shoes, unsuitable diets and egotistical riders.

Thank heaven there are some humans who do their horses well.

Because of the amazing anomaly presented by the horse’s power and strength, bent to our will despite our treatment (some of it from ignorance, some from intent), a poem occurred to me . . .

Dedicated to all horses and ponies, everywhere
