What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a type of medicine that focuses on caring for one’s overall well-being using specially prepared natural substances, such as herbs and minerals, to trigger a healing response. Veterinarians might recommend homeopathic treatment for pets to alleviate the adverse side effects of certain medications, such as nausea, or to address issues like environmental allergies, arthritis, pain, and anxiety.
How Homeopathy Works
Homeopathy is considered an alternative therapy, but some pet insurance plans will cover homeopathic treatments for qualified health issues. Look under “alternative therapy coverage” to see if the pet insurance plan you’re considering includes homeopathy coverage.
- Homeopathy is a holistic, natural approach to medicine that uses natural substances to promote optimal health in the body and mind.
- Homeopathic treatments are often used alongside traditional veterinary practice to effectively manage symptoms, but they are generally considered to be a form of alternative therapy. Some, but not all, accident-illness pet insurance plans will cover homeopathic treatments for qualifying conditions.
