Animal medicine and homeopathy

"Similia similibus curentur" (like cures

Homeopathy has almost as much history in the treatment of animals as it does in human medicine. The first publication containing proposals on the recommended treatment of diseased animals is dated 1815. A handwritten manuscript penned by Samuel Hahnemann on the topic of homeopathic cures has survived. In it, Hahnemann puts forward his conviction that "...The practice of healing animals, put succinctly, using homeopathic remedies, is as safe and as certain as it is in the treatment of humans." Gustav Wilhelm Groß (1794 - 1847), physician and co-founder of the Allgemeine Homöopathische Zeitung (a homeopathic news journal), published an essay in 1830, in which he ascertains that healing animals by means of homeopathy would furnish the perfect evidence that its effects are not founded on suggestion.

Hahnemann himself conducted his famous chinchona bark experiment in 1790. To do this he consumed a few morsels of chinchona bark and noted that his body responded by manifesting symptoms otherwise found when suffering from malaria. From this he concluded that a medicinal product with the capacity to precipitate symptoms in a patient that resemble those of the illness is equally able to heal the very same illness. It was not until 1796 that he published his famous paper "Essay on a New Principle for Ascertaining the Curative Powers of Drugs". Hahnemann himself seemed to embody 'a personal' homeopathy. Translated
literally from Greek, the term is comprised of 'homo' for similar and 'pathos' for suffering, and hence means 'similar ailments'. It is in the meaning of this term that we find the healing method described.

The modern practice of treating large and small animals, especially those intended for use in the production of food, is inconceivable without homeopathy, as it leaves behind no residues.
