100% the way I feel about it too. Me, my family & my pets have all been helped by homeopathy over the years. And yeah, animals don't have a sense of "placebo", so how can that work on them?

And, my life has been saved on a couple of occasions by allopathic medicine, so definitely a place for that too!

Can homeopathy cure everything? No it can't, and we need allopathic medicine too. But if we aren't talking about a life threatening condition which needs immediate hospitalization, I believe it is a very viable place to start. I can say with certainty that it has helped my dogs and cats tremendously over the years - and I am positive they know NOTHING about placebos or "mind over matter."

Homeopathy on humans has, yes, pretty much been proven to be unscientific and ineffective. However, there has not been a significant study done on the effects of homeopathic remedies in the Veterinary world. Thus, we cannot make assumptions about how homeopathy affects our dogs.

While I too am a science fanatic, the original poster needs to learn to respect other people's beliefs and opinions. It's not hurting you if somebody practices homeopathy. The only time I would ever see it necessary to point it out is if somebody is refusing to admit that they need professional medical help for a condition. That's not the case in this thread.

"There have been few studies examining the effectiveness of specific homeopathic remedies in general. In one study of homeopathy for sinusitis, however, more than 80% of the 119 participants had significant improvement in their symptoms after taking the homeopathic remedy for 2 weeks without antibiotics or other medications."

Sinusitis
