Ralph’s colitis remained unsettled however and a year later Honey’s founder, Jonathan Self, recommended trying a local holistic vet, Sue Armstrong, and we never looked back. Ralph was put on an elimination diet and treated with homeopathy, and his colitis came under control. He had a thrush infection in his throat, which was treated with homeopathy, and also salmonella and campylobacter infections that were treated with antibiotics conventionally. Ralph had cruciate ligament issues as well. Rather than taking the traditional surgical route, these were treated conservatively with homeopathy, chiropractic and blood platelet therapy (to stimulate natural healing).
Five years later I’m so grateful we were given the advice to see a holistic vet and use homeopathy. I’ve always been naturally minded and although I had zero knowledge of homeopathy I was willing to try. Ralph has had his fair share of medical challenges and without an integrated approach to his care I believe he would have had to take many drugs with all their potential side effects. Thanks to complementary and alternative medicine, Ralph now leads a relatively healthy life.
