Support Homeopathic Veterinary Practices

Target: American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA)

Goal: Commend the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) for supporting homeopathic veterinary practices

The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) recently voted no to a resolution “to discourage the use of homeopathy by US veterinarians and identify the approach as unsafe or ineffective.” An overwhelming response of 90% of votes against the resolution made a powerful stand in support of homeopathic veterinary medicine. Support this commendable decision made by the AVMA, acknowledging the benefits of homeopathic medicine for our beloved pets.

The AVMA acknowledged that they already have established guidelines for complementary and alternative therapies, and refused to single out any single homeopathic method for judgment. They did admit that more evidence-based research needs to be done in support of homeopathic methods, however. This can be accomplished beginning with the awareness the AVMA’s recent decision has raised.

Dr. Jeff Feinman, VMD, CVH, owner of HomeVet and past President of the Academy of Veterinary Homeopathy (AVH), said, “I am absolutely thrilled for the wonderful opportunity this gives me and the Academy of Veterinary Homeopathy (AVH) to help educate other veterinarians about the fantastic effectiveness of veterinary homeopathic treatment. The overwhelming support from our AVMA delegate colleagues is already being shared by other conventional veterinarians who want to learn more. The AVH has received requests from state veterinary associations for continuing education programs in vet homeopathy. As education chair of the AVH, I see the outcome of the one year of careful study of this resolution and deliberation by our colleagues as a very good thing.”

The American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association was admitted into the AVMA House of Delegates in 2013, and this year the American Academy of Veterinary Acupuncture was admitted as well, inviting homeopathic representatives into veterinary medicine leadership. Support the AVMA’s decision to give homeopathic veterinary medicine a chance, as our beloved animals deserve the best, safest treatment options available.


Dear AVMA Representatives,

Thank you for voting “no” on the resolution to deem homeopathic veterinary medicine as unsafe or ineffective. Because you took a stand in favor of homeopathic remedies, awareness is being raised about the need for more evidence-based research in support of homeopathic veterinary medicine, a great alternative to traditional medicine for earth-conscious pet owners.

Continue to stand by the possibilities that homeopathic medicine offers to pet owners and their beloved animals. Hold out for more research to be done, and in the meantime continue to involve representatives from homeopathic modalities to be a part of your organization. Thank you for raising awareness about the benefits of homeopathic veterinary medicine.

    Homeopathy WORKS!!! That’s why the Drug companies don’t like it– simple!

  2. suzanne o'meara says:

    i like homeopathy for animals but i have had bad experiences for my pets with highly corrupt power abuses on my pets & i just wish the homeopathic vets were the right candidates & so on.

  3. As a natural healer, I have studied homeopathy for many years, along with many other healing practices. I must admit that homeopathy seems counter-intuitive to me, and I am still not certain about it. But I have seen some results on animals, and even a couple of my own injuries, from it. I support it’s being legal, but also hope that those who use it are well informed, and not given inflated expectations. It is possible that, even for animals, the positive results are from the placebo effect – but there’s nothing wrong with that if it works.

  4. Karen Graham says:

    Homeopathy can be very effective but it does take some training in it. There are many things out there being passed off as homeopathy that are not true homeopathy. Does homeopathy completely replace my regular veterinarian? No but it can be used as another tool to keep my pets and myself healthy. I have used it to treat Uveitis in my horse and it has worked much better than allopathic medicine would have.

  5. Mike Hague says:

    Some stupid comments by narrow minded bigots.
    We treated out dog of a very severe skin condition homeopathically and it worked brilliantly. I too have also personally used it effectively.
    Unlike humans, where the argument is often that there is a ‘placebo effect’, it is not possible to ‘suggest’ to an animal that a homeopathic treatment will work. It either does or does not. There is no grey area.
    No one should suggest that homeopathy cures everything, nor that is a replacement to traditional medicine – hence the reason it’s called ‘complimentary medicine’. However for certain ailments, man made drugs and treatments are not always the best way to go…

  6. WiZaRd Of The Wolf Nation says:

    This is an excellent program,
    and I highly recommend it for all the
    fur-babies in need.

    The naysayers and detractors are too
    self-absorbed with maintaining the status quo
    of harsh conventional medicine and as far as
    I’m concerned, the shallow-minded
    anti-homeopathy trolls can leave the
    year 2014 A.D. and go back to the
    16th Century from which they came!

    And YES, the FDA and Big Drug can kiss my a$$!!!

  7. People have choices to choose their preferences. AVMA is a medical association and has always been practiced that way. I do not expect them to vote yes on homeopathic method since that’s not the way they were trained. We are free to choose homeopathic method without forcing others’ practice to go against what they believe.

    However, I am happy to hear that AVMA has open mind and willing to adopt other methods.
