Homeopathic Remedies for Dogs with Allergies.

Are homeopathic remedies for dogs with allergies a viable and practical option?

Often, people look for alternatives besides taking their dog to the vet for a variety of reasons; homeopathic remedies for dogs with allergies can be just as effective as traditional treatments prescribed by your vet and maybe only a fraction of the cost, which is an added bonus.

Most dog owners just want to see their dogs feeling better and watching their pet go through contortions and constant irritation just to find relief can be upsetting.

Homeopathic remedies for dogs with allergies can be one of the more modern and effective ways to deal with these problems and provide relief to your best friend at the same time.

Homeopathic remedies for dogs with allergies are similar to homeopathic remedies for humans.

Because many of the same herbs are used to treat the same types of symptoms.  The main idea behind homeopathic remedies is a holistic approach which means treatment of the whole body, not just the symptoms which is what modern medicine tends to do.

The basic approach with homeopathic remedies is to treat a symptom with a low dose of a herb that would cause those types of symptom in a much larger dose.  It is important to determine what the root causes of the allergies are before you seek treatment of that particular allergy.

With homeopathic remedies, there are reference books called “repertories”.  These books are used in reference to determine symptoms, bunched together in groups which lead to causation.  Of course, you must know what all of the symptoms are, including environment, area affected, time of day and what was consumed immediately preceding the symptoms.

Homeopathic remedies for dogs with allergies is a very practical option but DOES require professional guidance.

There is a science behind diagnosing the allergies and or illness that your dog has, and it is strongly recommended that you consult with a homeopathic veterinarian to make a determination of the allergies.

Once this has been done, you can save money by finding the specific treatments from other less costly sources, but you will know for sure which are the correct remedies in your dog’s case.

Many people immediately take their pet to a vet when they see that their pet is ill or is suffering some sort of possible allergic reaction.  This is a really good idea because you are obviously concerned about your pet’s well-being.

Your veterinarian will not have all of the necessary information required to make a solid diagnosis if you are dealing with some type of allergy.  They can, however, make a determination through various tests, and these tests can be as simple as some blood tests or skin scrapings.

Another important thing to keep in mind when it comes to homeopathic remedies for dogs with allergies is that sometimes the remedy will work well for a few weeks.  At some point after that, symptoms may return and or get worse, but that will only be temporarily.

Homeopathic remedies for dogs with allergies can be a great choice when it comes to treatment, because they are less harmful than medications and can often achieve the same results in the long run.

Homeopathic remedies for dogs with allergies can be a great source of relief for your pet.

    I feel so sorry for my little dog he has an allergy that causes him to itch all the time and he has a cough now that goes along with it. Is there anything that I can do for him? I have tried all the over the counter allergy medicines and nothing seems to work. If you can offer any help that would be great.

    This was interesting I’m going to have to try this remedy with my dog. I have a Chinese Pug that’s always biting and scratching, I can’t find anything in the areas that he is doing that to. I’ve heard of hot spots but how do you treat those? Do you think this is what he has? What causes hot spots anyway? I would appreciate any help that you can give me because he is miserable.

    I try to avoid taking my dogs to the veterinarian simply because I can barely afford to pay the medical bill. So I try to do as much research to find homeopathic remedies to treat any minor allergies or skin fungus that dogs inevitably pickup from the outside or from some packaged foods, from what I am learning in my research. It was this research that brought me to this site when I found it on a Google search.

    The most common allergic reaction is irritated and itchy skin and according to the “Dog Owners Home Veterinary Handbook,” the dog must be exposed to a substance more than once before she will develop an allergy. The dog naturally scratches, licks or chews the itchy skin, often making the itch worse and possibly creating sores. This happened to my friends cute little Maltese toy dog. She started licking her paw and that irritated the skin. It pained me to see her suffer.

    Thank you so much for your advice, I have a little dog that has a lot of these symptoms and he can’t tell me what is wrong so I am going to follow your advice and see if I can determine what he is allergic to if anything. I hate not being able to determine what it is and neither can the vet but he is miserable. Great advice, thank you.

  6. John says:

    It is so tough to set and watch my dog be so miserable, they can’t tell you what is bothering them and how they feel, plus since they are dogs they are always trying to be happy and carefree even when they don’t feel good so I think they are the hardest to read when you are trying to take care of them. This article was very interesting thank you.

    Can you give your animals people medicine if you give them the dosage for a child? I have been giving my dog Benadryl and baby aspirin for quite some time and I don’t want to continue if it is going to harm him in anyway. Do you think cough syrup or Mucinex would hurt them? I feel so sorry for the dog but the vet didn’t give me any advice either.

  8. Anthony says:

    If a dog is coughing like they have something in their throat is that an allergy? He has done this off and on for about a year now. He doesn’t have any loss of appetite or anything and he still gets around just fine given his age but the cough makes me think he is miserable. If you could answer my question it would be much appreciated if you would just reply to my comment.

  9. Georgina says:

    How do you determine if a dog has an allergy or not? I know that people have to go through a series of tests before they can determine what they are allergic to but there isn’t an allergy doctor for dogs that is willing to put in the time it would take to do these test is there? Is this advice good for cats as well or should you treat them differently all together?

    I haven’t found a supplement that I can give my dog that will help with the itching and cough that he has but I have noticed that if I make his dog food so to speak he tends to not itch quiet as much. I started giving him a mixture of Hamburger, rice and scrambled eggs and it really seems to be working so far, not to mention he really likes its.

  11. Don says:

    Do you think cough syrup or Mucinex would hurt a dog? I have a dog that sounds like he has a cold like people get but he doesn’t have a runny nose or anything he just coughs a lot. Can you give your animals people medicine if you give them the dosage for a child? My vet told me to give him baby aspirin so I was wondering about other stuff as well.

  12. Thomas says:

    My dog scratches all the time and when he does he holds his breath then when he is done scratching he starts coughing like he has asthma or something, is that an allergy? He hasn’t lost his appetite or anything like that so I was under the impression that it wasn’t that serious but he’s done it so long now that it is really getting on my nerves. What can I do to help him?

  13. Carolyn says:

    This is great information for dog owners but do you have anything like this for cat owners? I think my cat might have allergies and I was wondering if this information is good for them as well? If you have any information for cats I would really appreciate seeing it because I think he has to be miserable. If you don’t maybe you could tell me where I could find some?

  14. Jane says:

    What kind of supplements are out there to give your dog for allergies? I haven’t found a supplement that I can give my dog that will help with the itching and cough that he has. I have gone through his dog food and changed that completely to the kind with the least amount of ingredients and that hasn’t helped either. I’ll try new bedding next and a bath more often maybe that will help.
