Support Homeopathic Veterinary Practices

March 19, 2014

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.
