      Insights into Veterinary Homeopathy

      Peter Gregory MRCVS
      The first part of the book is devoted to examining the fundamental concepts which together provide a foundation for veterinary homeopathic practice, and how they may be understood from a modern perspective. This is followed by an investigation into some of the most common remedy states encountered in practice, with guidance on how to recognise them in an animal patient; not only by how they present outwardly, but also by accessing those elements of the patient that would otherwise be considered as hidden. Finally the author investigates the personal experience of practising veterinary homeopathy.
