Homoeopathy has been a propounded system of treatment for animals as effective and efficacious in human beings since the time immemorial. Animals are treated homoeopathically for both acute and chronic conditions. Acute conditions include injuries.

Both physical and behavioural problems are treated. Physical problems include conditions of the skin such as eczemas, eye inflammations, allergies, cough,gastrointestinal disorders, urinary tract diseases including infections and diseases of the kidneys, diabetes, problems of liver and thyroid, diseases of the loco motor system, neurological complaints such as paralysis and epilepsy and hormonal disturbances.

More specifically cows and sheeps are treated for mastitis, calves for diarrhoea, pigs for respiratory difficulties and birds for eye infections.

There are many veterinarians in Kerala who practice Homoeopathy as an alternative treatment modality. The course is designed to meet the urgent demand of the day for those Veterinary graduates who would like to extend their knowledge in Homoeopathy as an alternative medicine

Complete Freund’s Adjuvant (CFA) द्वारा गठिया से पीडित किये गये चूहों पर होम्योपैथिक औषधि रस टाक्स के परीक्षण ( Modulation of arthritis in rats by Toxicodendron pubescens and its homeopathic dilutions.)

पशुऒं पर होम्योपैथिक दवाओं के परीक्षण अधिक देखे नही जाते हैं लेकिन इधर हाल के दिनों मे इन परीक्षणॊं की संख्या बढी है , हाँलाकि यह होम्योपैथिक सिद्दातों का पूर्ण रुप से पालन नही करते इसके बावजूद इनकी महत्ता से इन्कार नही किया जा सकता है । होम्योपैथिक पद्दति मे निशिचित सिद्दांत हैं और उनके लिये लक्षणॊं का लेना और उनके ऊपर प्रेसक्राब करना एक अनिवार्य शर्त है ।

हाँलाकि हाल ही मे The Faculty of Homeopathy २०११जर्नल मे प्रकाशित एक लेख जो पबमेड पर प्रकाशित हुआ कम चर्चा का विषय रहा । पटेल इन्सटिटुयूट आफ़ फ़ारमासियुटिकल रिसर्च के सी.आर. पाटिल , आर.बी.जाधव आदि का लेख रस टाक्स की anti inflammatory property पर था ।

सर्वप्रथम Complete Freund’s Adjuvant (CFA) द्वारा चूहों को गठिया से पीडित किया गया और उसके बाद सिलसिलेवार शुरु हुये  प्रयोगशाला परीक्षण । रस टाक्स के 3cH, 6cH, 30cH, 200cH पोटेन्सी को सफ़लतापूर्वक प्रयोग  कर के उनके परिणामों को होम्योपैथिक मैटैरिया मेडिका आदि मे वर्णित लेखों  के आधार को  सही पाया गया । यह रिसर्च अभी जारी है ।

Toxicodendron pubescens P. Mill (Anacardiaceae) known in homeopathy as Rhus toxicodendron (Rhus tox) is used as an anti-inflammatory medicine in homeopathic practice. In this study, Rhus tox in its crude form and homeopathic dilutions (3cH, 6cH, 30cH, 200cH) was evaluated for effects on Complete Freund’s Adjuvant (CFA) induced arthritis in rats.


We assessed the severity of arthritis through observations including inflammatory lesions, body and organ weight and hematological parameters including C-reactive protein (CRP). Blinded radiological analysis of the affected joints and pain intensity determination was also carried out.


Rhus tox protected rats from CFA-induced inflammatory lesions, body weight changes and hematological alterations. Rhus tox protected against radiological joint alterations due to arthritis. Arthritic pain scores were also favorably affected by Rhus tox. All the dilutions of Rhus tox including crude form showed anti-arthritic activity. The maximum protective effect was evident in the crude form at 10mg/kg/day, by mouth.


This study supports claims in the homeopathic literature on the role of Rhus tox and its ultra dilutions in the treatment of arthritis and associated pain. Further study is needed to explain this anti-arthritic effect of Rhus tox.

Homeopathy in dogs pilot study indicates need for larger clinical trial

Source : News-Medical.Net  & The Veterinary Record 2009

Results from a small, rigorously designed, research study at the University of Bristol’s Department of Clinical Veterinary Science have pointed the way towards a larger clinical trial of homeopathy for the treatment of atopic dermatitis in dogs.

Atopic dermatitis (eczema) is an itchy, chronic, skin disease that can affect humans and animals such as dogs. Twenty dogs were recruited to the study from the referral sample seen in the veterinary dermatology clinic at the University.

Dogs were diagnosed with non-seasonal atopic dermatitis and those entering the study had positive reactions to multiple allergens to confirm the diagnosis. Some dogs continued to receive conventional drugs. This category included dogs that had residual, stable and persistent pruritus (itching) despite receiving glucocorticoids, ciclosporin or allergen-specific immunotherapy.

The dogs were prescribed individualised homeopathic medicines by vet John Hoare. Two months after starting the treatment, the owners of 15 of the dogs reported no improvement.  However, owners of the other five dogs reported pruritus scores that were at least 50 per cent improved compared to their pets’ score at recruitment. One of the five dogs improved by 100 per cent and needed no further treatment.

The other four dogs that responded well in this first phase were then put forward into a blinded randomised trial in which they received their homeopathic prescription at some times and placebo at other times. The three dogs that completed this phase of the study improved more with the active remedy than with placebo, and owners were able to distinguish correctly which pill was which.

Dr Peter Hill, who was lead clinician on the study, said "These preliminary data indicate the need for a large randomised controlled trial of homeopathy in canine atopic dermatitis."

Dr Robert Mathie, Research Development Adviser at the British Homeopathic Association, who collaborated in the study, added "We hope that many of the country’s veterinary schools and other specialist referral centres might participate in a multi-centre trial."

The team reports its results in the March 21 2009 issue of Veterinary Record (Volume 164, Issue 12).
