Homeopathic Remedies for Pets

Pet stores are beginning to carry homeopathy products for animals. Where there used to be a small section in the local co-op for natural pet products-mostly food-there is now an entire section devoted to the alternative medicines that can help detoxify and strengthen your pet's immune system, digestive track, and help prevent tick and flea infestation.

Wild animals seek out natural remedies for their ailments. Ever wonder why your pet insists on eating grass? It helps with the digestive system. It's instinctive, and we could take a cue from them as to how good alternative medicine really is-for humans and animals. Your pet is a member of your family, so preventative homeopathy for dogs and other pets works just as well as they do for you.

As a quick overview, here are some products and homemade remedies along with preventative measures to get you started on treating your doggy or cat with natural medicines:

Urinary tract infections are common in cats, more so than dogs, and can cause painful urination and if left untreated can cause the bladder to shut down. Always provide your kitty with lots of fresh water, and don't just rinse out the bowl between fillings, scrub it out with a tiny drop of light detergent and rinse thoroughly. The bacteria left sitting will look like a pink ring around the bowl, and can cause viruses and disease because it is toxic.

Lack of fiber in a pet's diet can cause constipation. This is common in newborns who haven't been weaned off mother's milk, and present as loss of appetite and bloating in their little tummies. The best way to combat constipation is a diet change consisting of fiber filled food and a mild laxative-which can be prescribed by a naturopath veterinarian.

Stressed pets are very common. A new environment, such as moving, a new person in the home, any number of factors can cause stress in pets. They can become aggressive and prone to nipping or outright biting if stressed, especially during breeding. There are some wonderful aggression relief formulas on the market for a homeopathic stress reliever. These are all natural and won't leave unwanted chemicals in the pet's digestive system.

Homeopathic products are also available to help your pet with coat and teeth problems, diabetes-also common in cats-digestive troubles, hairball relief and distemper. A little known fact is that animals get depressed, too. They can feel grief and take their cues from their humans on how to deal with it. If your pet seems lethargic and sad, you can help them with homeopathic remedies to relax and calm them.
