Unfortunately kidney disease is something we are seeing more frequently in these times are Cats are living longer and being fed on processed diets that contain high levels of sugar, oil and salt. To keep your pets kidneys healthy nothing is netter than a natural diet, raw meat is the best thing you can feed your cat or dog you can buy raw meat ready prepared and tested for your pets from many suppliers and it can even work out much cheaper than commercially prepared pet food. With raw food you will see a difference in your cats, teeth and gums, coat and general immunity. Please find a list of raw suppliers at the bottom of this page.

Dogs are more susceptible to skin disease than cats. Fleas are a major cause of skin irritation and of course this problem can be resolved easily. Staphysagria in a 6x solution applied directly to the coat will help to illiminate fleas. Skin complaints caused by other problems can respond very well to homeopathy, it is one section of treatment where I have seen huge response. Unfortunately these days skin complaints are often prescribed huge courses of hormones and steroids by vets which have many terrible side effects and often leave the animal a lot worse off than it was originally the treatment prescribed can even aggravate the condition and cause great hair loss. If your pet has a skin condition we recommend seeking advice from a homeopathic vet to help you diagnose exactly what the problem is.

EUPHRASIA     Early stages of conjunctivititis


LEDUM   Scratch to lense or foreign object in eye





IODIUM   30c  Given daily will help to balance the glad function, when an extreme thirst, greasy unkept coat and exhaustion are present this remedy is particuarly useful if use alongside thyroidinum 30C for increased results or if no response to iodum is seen thyroidinum alone could be helpful.
