Homeopathy

Homeopathy is a system of medicine based on the principle of “like cures like”. Using carefully selected dilute preparations called Remedies, homeopathy stimulates the body to strengthen and heal itself. The Remedies are made from natural sources. They are selected according to the whole symptom picture of the patient including physical and emotional states. Homeopathy is effective for acute problems such as injuries as well as chronic complaints.

It is important to have a consultation with someone trained in veterinary homeopathy to realize the full benefit of homeopathic treatment. The disease course is much different in our pets than it is in people. Someone trained to practice homeopathy who is not a veterinarian or doesn’t have training in veterinary homeopathy may potentially cause harm to your pet.

Veterinary homeopathy is available from a local veterinarian. Dr Susan Hore offers phone consultations: Ph 1-204-573-7656. She requires your veterinarian to fax copies of your pet’s medical record to her office.

New Classification and Therapy for Kidney Disease in Dogs and Cats. This is the official website for the International Renal Interest Society. This is the group of specialist veterinarians that sub-specialize in kidney diseases in dogs and cats. Hence this website is fairly complex and technical but it is the basis upon which we now classify kidney diseases and also how we now manage the patients.

Feeding Cats for Health and Longevity. “Dr Lisa Pierson’s excellent website on Feeding Your Cat” and “Dr Deb Zoran’s seminal article on Nutrition in Cats” explain why cats should be fed meat diets (raw, cooked or canned) and not carbohydrate-containing dry cat food.

Kidney Disease in Cats. “Tanya’s Comprehensive Guide to Feline Chronic Kidney Disease” and “Feline CRF Information Center” contain lots and lots and lots of information. The explanations are clear and most of the statements are correct.

Diabetic Cat Management and Recovery
We are starting to use a different insulin in cats that is reliably absorbed, long acting and giving better results – more recoveries or better stabilization with lower doses. This insulin is sold as Levemir. Information about the use of Levemir in cats is available at ‘petdiabetes.’

“Tilly’s” homepage — a nice fuzzy-warm story about a cat who recovered from her diabetes with the help of the correct diet, Lantus insulin and advice from Dr Lea Stogdale (the Canadian vet mentioned), plus some (relatively) compact advice.
