Homeopathy Support for Boarding Kennels and Catteries

We are fortunate to have another animal article to share from Stephanie from Wild Remedy! Stephanie is a fully qualified Animal Homeopath, she completed her studies with us, here at CNHH, as well as holds a certificate in Principles of Canine Behaviour. With the long weekend fast approaching it is the perfect time to share how Homeopathy can support our fur friends when they head to the kennels or cattery for a little R’n’R!

For some of our pets, they love their time away. They get to see familiar staff and other pets and they easily slot into the holiday routine. For others; going into the kennels or cattery, especially for the first time, can be quite traumatic and upsetting.

Their whole life has just been turned upside down and they have been thrust into an unknown world. There are new sights and sounds, new people, other animals and a whole new routine to learn. It can be overwhelming and scary for our pets.

Homeopathy can help support your pet while they are away from home. The correct homeopathic remedy is going to help them adjust quickly and effortlessly into their new environment.

It’s important to remember to seek advice from your local, fully qualified Animal Homeopath, like Stephanie, to ensure you are receiving the best possible treatment plan to help support your animals through their time at the kennels and catteries.

Below are some remedies to consider for being away from home:

  • Ignatia. This is the first remedy that comes to mind when owners tell me that their pet is going into the kennels or cattery. These pets are generally very sensitive and quite often are highly emotional. They can become so overwhelmed that they are almost hysterical. These pets will want to be left alone to grieve and be sad. They may even start trembling and any highly emotional situation makes them worse.
  • Pulsatilla. These are the “velcro” pets. They just have to be with you, sit on you and even follow you to the bathroom. These pets are generally gentle and timid. They will often look towards others for reassurance as they tend to be nervous in new situations.
  • Arsenicum. These are the pets that are thrown by any changes to their routine. They have a huge fear of being alone and generally can be anxious, fearful and demanding. More often than not they will be the ones pacing up and down and constantly checking their surroundings. They want and need to have people around them as being on their own is terrifying.
  • Phosphorus. These pets are the lively ones and love to be the centre of attention, life is good! On the other side of the coin, they can be very tense and nervous and are easily frightened. These pets have lots of fears and are very sensitive and being left on their own can be devastating for them. In fact, all of the stimuli from the kennels/cattery can send these pets running for cover!

There are many other remedies that could be considered but the ones listed above are the main ones that Stephanie has used to date in her clinic. If you are in any doubt about which remedy is best suited to your pet please contact your animal homeopath.

As always with any homeopathic treatment, this does not replace the advice of your vet. If your animal is in any way distressed or in pain then please consult your vet.
