Veterinary homeopathy

Veterinary homeopathy is the term used to describe the treatment of animals with homeopathy. The use of homeopathy in animals dates back to the lecture given by Samuel Hahnemann (the founder of homeopathy) on the subject circa 1813, in Leipzig.

In the USA veterinary homeopathy is used by veterinarian members of the Academy for Veterinary Homeopathy and/or the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association.

In the UK, veterinary surgeons who use homeopathy belong to the Faculty of Homeopathy and/or to the British Association of Homeopathic Veterinary Surgeons or BAHVS. Animals may only be treated by qualified veterinary surgeons in the UK and some other countries.

Internationally, the body that supports and represents homeopathic veterinarians is the International Association for Veterinary Homeopathy or IAVH.
