What are homeopathic products?

There are different types of homeopathic products on the market, and so we will start by highlighting some basic differences that every consumer should know:

For starters, we can find the remedies or simple medicines. These are drugs which are a single substance extracted from a single strain.

But there are other remedies called compound medicines. These remedies are more complex drugs where different substances from extracted products, therefore different strains, are included. Generally, the substances listed in one product work in synergy, i.e. the action of a substance aids and complements the action of the other. Compounded medications generally focus on the symptomatic treatment of various diseases.

Compound or simple: Which product is best for my dog?

If you have not tried homeopathy before, defining which of the above products is best for your dog is a complicated task. To start with, you should pay attention to the problem or illness suffered by your dog and have it officially diagnosed by a veterinarian. Of course, you should always listen to their advice.

Once we know the different possibilities you can opt for a simple remedy - a generic homeopathic product - to improve the animal's health.

If the dog suffers a particular disease, you must consider the use of compound drugs, which offer a more specific homeopathic treatment for a particular circumstance or ailment.

Where and how can I find out more about homeopathic products for dogs?

The first recommendation is to go to a veterinary homeopath because they are the best person to guide you in this topic. Besides having the necessary knowledge for implementation, the homeopathic veterinarian will be familiar with the current market and know which products are best for each case.

If you are looking for a simple remedy to treat your dog's overall health, you can find homeopathic simple remedies at any pharmacy. You can find a variety of them by simply consulting the person at the counter.

In the case of composite products there is a small obstacle: those found in pharmacies are often designed for people, since the use of homeopathic products for animals is not so widespread. For this reason we recommend going for the first, more general, option if your dog has a particular problem and you wish to treat it with homeopathy.
