Vets: Ban the use of homeopathy in animals
About 1,000 of the UK's vets have signed a petition calling for a ban on homeopathy being prescribed to animals. The petition calls on the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons to stop vets from offering homeopathy on animal welfare grounds. But the veterinary regulator says "it is difficult to envisage any justification" for a ban. About one in seven practices offers some form of complementary therapy. Figures suggest about 500 farmers and 40 vets are trained in homeopathy. "It's been shown that homeopathy doesn't work, so it probably shouldn't be offered any more even if it is offered with good intentions." "Animal welfare undoubtedly suffers if people give homeopathy instead of proper treatment." (Webmaster's comment: More witchcraft for the ignorant.)

Stop vets offering homeopathy – placebo doesn’t work for pets
Homeopathy has no effect beyond placebo and is pointless in animal medicine, so let's end its use by those vets who still offer it, says Danny Chambers. People trust veterinary surgeons because their medical knowledge is the result of years of study and training at formally accredited institutions, based on sound research. You certainly wouldn’t expect to be recommended treatments based on a vet’s personal belief in therapies that have no grounding in science. And yet it happens. I’m talking about homeopathy, which has no effect beyond placebo. This is plain weird when you think about it. Animals do not experience a placebo effect because they are unaware they are being treated. Any perceived medical benefit is merely due to the care-giver effect – the subjective assessment by the animal’s owner or clinician. Or wishful thinking as it is also known. So, unlike people, animals do not even receive the psychological benefits from homeopathic treatments.
