Sheep are generally treated directly by the shepherd. In addition they conceal their health problems for a very long time in order not to appear conspicuous in the flock – often for too long... So there are few opportunities to gain experience in the homeopathic treatment of these ruminants. This makes the practical tips and detailed observations presented in this descriptive presentation by the Swiss homeopath Gilberte Favre – one of the few specialists in the treatment of sheep – all the more valuable.
Together with the various techniques for keeping and tending sheep, and treating the common associated problems – such as injury, parasites, foot rot and other diseases of the hooves, bluetongue disease and other physical problems – she comprehensively describes the nature and the body language of these easily startled herd animals as well as the various breeds.
Practical hints on the examination of the animals as well as how to administer the homeopathic remedies together with descriptions of the major constitutional and first-aid remedies make this presentation a real treasure trove for all
those who look after these grazing animals.
