Homeopathic vet on the farm - cattle, sheep, pigs, poultry

Farm animals are a special case. Firstly they usually come in groups, often requiring the special homeopathic techniques for group medicine. Secondly, they are usually under production stress, thirdly, they are usually grouped or housed in such a way, however good the farm, that there are some population stresses. Fourthly, production demands lack of tissue residues, thereby rendering herbal medicine and aromatherapy of less value and more dangerous than in other species. Fifthly, economics are a vital ingredient of farming, meaning that hands-on therapies such as acupuncture and chiropractic are usually only requested for animals of special 'value'.

Homeopathy is the treatment that is most commonly sought on the farm. It is easy, economical and effective. It is exciting that farm health problems (as itemised below) can be treated without antibiotics and hormone drugs. This is good for the consumer. Also, homeopathy cannot stimulate the generation of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, which are becoming a serious problem on intensive farms, from both the consumer and animal welfare points of view).

Species treated include cattle (bovine), sheep (ovine), pigs (porcine), llamas (camelids), goats (caprine) and poultry (chickens, hens, bantams, geese, ducks, turkeys, pheasants, partridges, peafowl, guinea fowl).

Some of the diseases and conditions that the homeopathic vet is asked to treat include:

mastitis, infertility, new forest eye, big bale eye (silage eye), listeriosis, meningtitis, E. coli, chronic diarrhoea (scour), pneumonia, rhinitis, abortion, chlamydia, pasteurellosis (pasteurella), foul in the foot (low, luer, foot rot), ketosis, twin lamb disease, orf, warts, osteomyelitis, ringworm, lumpy jaw (actinomycosis), wooden tongue (actinobacillosis), laminitis, foot abscess, septic joint, joint ill, navel ill, calf diphtheria, BVD, IBR, watery mouth, strawberry footrot, heel dermatitis (pododermatitis), MMA, erysipelas, coccidiosis.
