Homeopathy For The Animals
Dr Glen Dupree, DVM, CHV
Homeopathy For The Animals is a practice dedicated to the art and science of
classical Homeopathy and its application in veterinary medicine.
Homeopathy is a deeply curative medicine that is not bound by diagnosis or
species. It works regardless of the symptoms of the patient, regardless if the
patient is 4-legged, furred, finned, or feathered.
Explore the articles in www.homeopathyfortheanimals.com for a
common sense, practical approach to holistic animal care. The articles are
informative and are meant to foster a deeper appreciation of what health
care can (and should) be. You will find articles on the general theory and
philosophy of homeopathy as well as specific applications to companion
animals, horses, and farm animals. There is also a page on the broader
application of homeopathy within sustainable agriculture programs and the
potential global impact of this dynamic combination.
About Dr. Glen Dupree
Dr. Dupree is a 1982 graduate of the Louisiana State University School of
Veterinary Medicine, where he received his training in the techniques and
applications of conventional allopathic medicine.
After running a solo veterinary practice for a number of years, Dr. Dupree
began to note that he was treating the same individuals over and over again
for the same “diseases” or worse “diseases” as the pets aged. He also noted
a decline in the general health of the pet population as conventional medicine
became more aggressive with more vaccines and drugs at the veterinarian’s
He began to rethink the things veterinary school had taught him about
medicine. About this same time, his son developed serious health problems
which conventional medicine was unable to cure. These events led Dr.
Dupree to explore alternative forms of medicine.
Through a series of fortuitous events Dr. Dupree was led to the Professional
Course in Veterinary Homeopathy taught by Dr. Richard Pitcairn and the rest,
as they say, is history. He has since furthered his Homeopathic education
through Dr. Pitcairn’s Advanced Course in Veterinary Homeopathy, as well as
through studies with various human Homeopaths in the US and abroad. Dr.
Dupree was certified by the Academy of Veterinary Homeopathy in 1996.
Dr. Dupree holds or has held licenses in the states of Louisiana, New York,
and Pennsylvania. Currently his practice is based in Louisiana and consists of
consultations at his office in St. Francisville, in addition to telephone
consultations to offer advice to care givers living outside the state.
In addition, Dr. Dupree maintains an active teaching, writing, and speaking
schedule. He has served as a mentor on Dr. Pitcairn’s Professional
Veterinary Homeopathy web list and as faculty for the development of the
Veterinary Homeopathy Program at the American Medical College of
Homeopathy in Phoenix. His writings have been published in the Journal of
the American Institute of Homeopathy, The American Journal of Homeopathic
Medicine, Homeopathy Today, The Natural Horse, The Louisiana Horseman’s
Guide, and IRiS Magazine
Consultations with Dr. Dupree
Homeopathic treatment differs from the treatment in conventional practices
in part because it does not rely on a conventional diagnosis. The selection of
the remedy is based on the symptoms of the patient on all levels – mental,
emotional, functional, physical, pathological , current and historic.
This difference gives the Homeopath a bit more latitude in the approach to
the patient. Optimally, the patient will be able to be presented for a physical
examination and the care giver can have an in-person consultation with the
Homeopath. The initial visit in these circumstances (if the patient is
presented for treatment of chronic disease) consists of the physical
examination, discussions on the hygiene of the patient, on the rare occasion
sampling for laboratory tests, and setting up a game plan for therapeutics.
Once the hygienic changes are made and the patient reestablished a baseline
of symptoms minimally complicated by external factors, we begin
Homeopathic therapy with an detailed history of the patient’s symptoms, an
analysis of the patient with these symptoms as a guide to the Homeopathic
remedy for the patient, and a plan for evaluating the patient’s response to
the remedy. From this point, the patient’s response to the remedy dictates
our further action.
Just less than optimal is when the patient and care giver live at too great a
distance to physically come to the consultation. In this case, we can use a
local primary care veterinarian to be the “eyes, ears, and hands” for physical
exam and any laboratory sampling (and because it is good to keep a local
veterinarian on your team). We can then take the detailed history over the
telephone and supplement it with the information from the primary care.
With this approach, the patient’s case can be analyzed and advice can be
given on remedy choices and dosing procedures. Follow up assessments on
the action of the remedy may also be made over the telephone.
