Dear Sir. We have a 2 year old English springer/lab cross named Chip. He recently presented with a large swelling on top of his left front paw which appeared to be in two pockets. One had an open hole in it and was oozing puss, the other was a more solid lump with no opening. I decided to self refer him for homeopathic treatment presuming that most conventional surgeries would opt straight for antibiotics and cleansing of the wound thereafter. I prefer a non antibiotic solution where possible. Ann Wood our homeopathic vet prescribed Hepar Sulph 6c to be taken twice daily for about 5 days and to clean the open wound with a mild hibiscrub solution. There was a marked improvement on the open pocket and the more solid closed pocket tended to soften and a hole opened up releasing the puss from within. With continued cleansing both pockets healed fully after about 10 days. I do feel I took the right decision in going down the homeopathic route as a first option which proved successful and negated the use of “over prescribed” antibiotics. regards John
Bone Cancer. In September 2007 our family dog Beanie became lame and was found to have an osteosarcoma of her shoulder. There is no conventional treatment for this and we were told we would be lucky if she was still with us for Christmas. We decided to try homeopathic treatment. Geoff felt the grief and homesickness that Beanie showed when we moved here from France could have been the initiating factor, and gave a remedy called Phos-ac 200 that dealt with this as well as the cancer. Beanie is with us now and pain free on homeopathy two Christmases later.

Arthritis of the Back. Our collie Arran developed arthritis of the thoracic and lumbo-sacral spine in October 2007, requiring pain-killers and chiropractic treament. Geoff saw him in March 2008 and gave the remedy Ovi-g-p 200 for two days because of the symptoms, her character and her anxiety when the dawn chorus started! He got much lamer for three days, and more fearful for two weeks, and then began to improve. After five weeks he climbed Snowdon, rolling about in the snow. He is off pain-killers to this day, and has had the remedy repeated on four occasions.

Gagging Cough due to Collapse of the Windpipe. In October 2008 our elderly Yorkshire terrier Ginger was suffering from a terrible honking cough for much of the day and night due to a collapsed wind-pipe. The only treatment for this conventionally is life long antibiotics and steroids. These only helped a bit. Geoff saw her, took her personality into account, particularly her hatred of squirrels, and prescribed Lachesis M for two days. She immediately began to improve, and has no cough at all now, never needing a repetition of the remedy. Mrs Tallis, Dinder.

“Since the course we’ve used homeopathy more and more with the sheep and on ourselves the increased confidence and understanding has enabled us to deal with familiar problems in the flock such as Orf and foot rot quickly, cheaply and confidently and these are now very rarely seen in the stock. Lambing is the time when we use homeopathy the most frequently and to good effect”
John Bale, Farm Manager with two dairy herds
“Its a MASSIVE help, so to me its a win win situation. I see the health of the herd being good from its use, my feeling is that if it didn’t work I wouldn’t be wasting my money on it. We don’t spend so much on vets bills. Its all part of the fight to keep a healthy herd. Mastitis is a good example, I hardly ever use antibiotics on mastitis. If we get 3 cases a months then I am doing badly, cell count is around 250. We have not used dry cow therapy in 20 years
Prize winning Dairy Farmer Liz Best
“Before I went on the course I was rather sceptical, now I think it is wonderfully useful in all sorts of ways. I feel that the greatest advantage of using it is that you can get straight in and treat the animal for the slightest sign of being off colour instead of the conventional way of waiting for the illness to develop, therefore it is more humane”.

The course was excellent, inspiring, informative, thought provoking and challenging. The way the course is set up is brilliant. Different tutors for every section was great because it kept everything interesting and fresh. Thanks to all the tutors for their time and enthusiasm you could tell they really enjoy homeopathy. The course was very good value for money, what with the CDs, folders, notes and tuition.
It has given me the confidence to use homeopathy as a first choice for prevention and cure. This works out cheaper in terms of treatment. The results we have already got from using remedies have been beyond my hopes. I thoroughly recommend this course to all farmers interested in: reducing antibiotic use, improving health outcomes, having more treatment options, saving money or simply seeing things more holistically.
We have now got lots more remedies and have only used 4 antibiotic tubes since the course and no injectables! Some wonderful successes. I am keeping records and am using around 15 remedies a day across 175 animals.
“You definitely need to go on the course to learn about how to use homoeopathy otherwise it is just a stab in the dark. The whole understanding of it, it’s so different, you have to get your head round the concepts, it’s completely opposit to what we all learnt. It doesn’t matter how much you read the books, you need to go and speak to like-minded people who have used it for years, hear it from the horse’s mouth so to speak“

I cannot recommend homeopathy highly enough, using it means that the wholeanimal is helped to overcome what ever is the problem ,not just givenmedicines that superficially”fix” the problem .I have a Labrador who hadskin problems ,allergies to numerous grasses, trees weeds plants andmeats ,I was told that she would never be better and would need to stay on acertain medication, the long term effects of which are not known, with thehelp of homeopathy she has come off these tablets and is well on the roadto full recovery, her itching and nibbling has 90% gone and she has a lovelycoat. I also feel that she is a much happier animal.As far as cost goes it’s a fraction of what conventional vets charge, mostinsurance companies cover homeopathy

At the age of 13 my Jack Russell-Yorkie cross, Ellie, developed symptoms of Cushing’s disease. As a result, she was put on conventional tablets, which did not agree with her. Over the course of a year she became zombie-like and unresponsive and seemed to have lost her enjoyment in life. Having read some positive reports about homeopathic remedies in the treatment of Cushing’s, we decided to see if homeopathic medicine would work for her. A remedy was prepared for her by a local veterinary surgeon and, on being taken off the conventional medicine and put on this homeopathic remedy, the change was immediate and remarkable. She became a much livelier and happier dog again, we were able to take her on proper walks, she enjoyed her food – it definitely gave her a new lease of life.
Every species responds differently to drugs and every being is individual in their response to drugs. My dog lived for another 3 years, dying just short of her 17th birthday. I honestly believe she would not have survived so long had she not been on a homeopathic remedy. I work in a veterinary practice where conventional medicine is prescribed and, in my opinion and from my experience with Ellie, it would be advantageous to have homeopathic medicine as a referral service for when cases are not resolving in the normal way. Homeopathic medicine deserves respect; far from being a newfangled fad, it has been around for centuries, provenly helping with the management and cure of a vast range of ailments.

I have had a Homeopathic Veterinary Surgeon for many years. He has treated most of the dogs that I own and have owned over the years, (currently I have 9) homoeopathically, with tremendous success.I am extremely grateful to have found him as he has helped my dogs homoeopathically for a variety of different conditions. The results have been extraordinary in some cases, seeing instant change and in other cases a slower successful outcome has been the case.
I would not hesitate to recommend him to all my dog clients and friends as Success speaks for itself.
