Homeopathics have no smell nor taste to them. Are available in the form of: tiny poppy pills, granules, tablets or in clear liquid form (which will have alcohol added to it as a preservative) The most important thing to remeber is that it is not the amount of liquid or pills given each time but rather the repeat (frequency) a homeopathic remedy is given. Less time inbetween each dose will give a quick response in acute stress. How many pills or drops given each time is less important, however the frequency of repeat dosing. For example A dose of homeopathic (clear liquid) remedy could be from one to 100 pills or tablets or drops given is still considered one (1) dose.
Note: It is not the amount given at one time but the frequency of repeats is the important factor for faster response and relief.
DOSING using tiny PILLS (or tablets )
A dose: approx. 1 to 2 tiny white pills ( or crush ) and put in gum or pouch of mouth for the saliva to absorb (no need to open pets mouth) If using homeopathic tissue salts large tablets always crush first. Alternatively, can stir a couple of pills or crush tablets into water bowl, trough or food. Usually the white pills or tablets are more suitable for the medium or larger animals as they have larger mouths, making it easier to administer orally.
DOSING using Homeopathic LIQUID.
If you were supplied homeopathic medicines in liquid, then alcohol would be added to preserve the remedy. Therefore avoid dosing orally.
A dose: approx. three to four drops. applied to body - skin. E.g. back of shoulders on the body (wet area with drops and pat into fur). We suggest dosing on body when we need to treat acute symptoms due the frequency of repeat dosing needed to get relief. If causal or chronic health that does not need so many frequent dosing we can add to dose to meals, and put in animal’s or pet water bowl or trough once a week. (Does not matter if other animals share water trough or bowl – only the ones that need it will benefit from it)
Dosing orally - (if free from alcohol free) you can made up a alcohol free liquid dosing - using one pill from your bottle and combined with filtered water. stir gently for a minute. Refer to: EXAMPLE DIAGRAM BELOW this text.
Can use this for all species ... BIRDS AND FARM ANIMALS.
If you received homeopathic PILLS, then you can make the pills into a LIQUID medication for easier dosing.
When do I need to do frequent Dosing for my pet?
ANY TIME if the animal is showing acute symptoms and /or stress. Give the selected remedy more frequently. “FREQUENT” Dosing will give fast relief eg a dose every 5 minutes, usuallly after the third repeat pet will be calm and relaxed.
How to make a homeopathic “liquid remedy” from a homeopathic pill.
1. One dose – put 1 pill (or a pinch of granules) into an empty clean cup or small bottle or oral syringe.
You can add as much filtered (or previously boiled water). E.g 1 cup of water or less. Or draw up liquid with 1 pill in an oral sryinge and shake for 1 minutes.
Then depending on size of species give them a dose, which can mean a few drops to 10cc/mls orally as one dose, repeating as often as needed to get results.
Make up a new batch when run out.
Only mix this small amount as required, as homeopathics do not store well for any longer than 2 weeks when mixed with water.
(Granules can be identified as resembling grains of sand)
2. Gently succuss (bang) the bottle (or syringe / container) against your palm or a book for approximately a minimum 50 times.
If using an open container, stir in well for 1 minute.
Note: Pills or granules will not completely dissolve, but the remedy will be released into the liquid on contact. Draw liquid into the syringe and use to medicate your animal. It can be administered as a short squirt orally (into the side of mouth or lip) OR by putting several drops onto the body (usually on the back of the neck or the head).For longer term or chronic treatment, can be added to meals and filtered water bowl each time you change it. It is not the amount given each time that matters so much, but rather the frequency the remedy is given throughout the day for efficiency.
Herbal mixtures that HAMPL supply are offered in liquid formulas only. Medicinal practitioner grade of the highest quality.
Herbs have a strong smell and taste, compared to homeopathic medicines (no smell or taste, as clear liquid or white pills). If you buy herbs, the best form is as a liquid or dry leaf (make a tea), as liquid herbs work faster and go through the blood stream much quicker. Herbal tablets need to be crushed and given in food, which is then processed through the stomach. This is far less effective and you would need more herbal tablets to get the same quick results as you get with liquid herbal dosing. Refer to: HAMPL bottle label for recommended frequency of repeat dosing during the day.
NOTE: always dilute herbal formulas before giving to pets / animal.
Add to food or dilute in some tasty liquid.
Cat, Rabbit, Bird Other small animals: must dilute in some hot water first to dissolve alcohol content. Either add 50ml of hot water first or 1/2 a cup to a cup of hot water. The less herbs you are using the less hot water is needed.
See Bottle label for guidance on how much herbs to add to hot water.
Small to Med – Med to Large dog: mix herbs in food and hand feed small pieces at a time, then feed as normal. Have several tins of sardines in spring water and mash up and add herbal drops plus any vitamins and supplements you are also wanting to give ( crush tablets) and hand feed it or offer as a small meal. Repeat mixture twice a day as suggested on label bottle.
Horse / farm animals: add drops to food or onto a piece of carrot, or in some apple JUICE and hand feed or orally syringe herbs this way. Unless you have a supply of dry herbs, you can add with feed.
alternatively you can dilute herbs in some some fluid, such as slippery elm powder mixed up with lots of filtered water and add herbs and supplements to this oral syringe in side of mouth until all mixture is gone.
Small animals(e.g. cat, rabbit, toy dog, infant animals) Try mixing some herbal drops into some pink salmon juice and offer in a bowl or slippery elm powder water mix and oral syringe… slowly squirt small amounts until the recommend pet dose is given.
