Homeopathy involves the use of natural remedies to stimulate the body to heal itself. Unlike herbal medicines, there are no side effects.
The principle is that a homeopathically prepared substance can cure symptoms that the original substance would have caused when given to healthy individual.
The trick is to match the so called “symptom picture” of the patient with the homeopathic remedy and give the latter at the correct potency.
In Acupuncture specific points are stimulated to aid healing of the body.
Acupuncture is part of the ancient healing art of Chinese Medicine where disease is seen as an imbalance in an organism. Healing involves restoring the balance and can be with the aid of acupuncture, massage, herbs, dietary and/or lifestyle changes.
Acupuncture involves the use of fine delicate needles or heat to stimulate specific points on the body to effect healing.
“You are what you eat” is a well known phrase and what we eat affects our health. Nutrition is a very broad subject with many aspects and many differing opinions.
In the small animal sector the major debate currently is about feeding raw food versus feeding pelleted dog or cat food.
In my opinion both have a place but should be applied to the right animal at the right time taking into account the nature of the animal, its life stage (puppy or geriatric), any special needs due to diseases as well as fitting into the busy life of the owner.
We are all affected by our environment – both the physical and social environment.

Our attitude toward them determines the effect they have on us. Fears can often be overcome through condition training which involves giving a positive stimulus at the same time a negative one is perceived in order to create an overall neutral experience.
