Homeopathic remedies are means to an end. Success of treatment depends not only on the efficacy of remedies, but also on the prerequisite in terms of availability of
expertise and appropriateness of the treatment procedure. To assess the extent by which a lege-artis treatment concept in homeopathy is performed in treating mastitis, a study was conducted on 64 mainly organic farms in Germany, France and Spain. The study revealed that most farmers only had a poor level of awareness of the principles of homeopathy and made use of human products regularly without rededication by a
veterinarian or made use of forbidden substances. Treatments were accompanied by insufficient follow-up checks. Homeopathic treatment procedures were applied very
heterogeneously. Each farmer seemed to have developed his/her individual homeopathic treatment strategy. However, an inappropriate homeopathic treatment considerably increases the risk to create unnecessary and extended suffering for diseased animals. To minimise negative side effects due to an inappropriate use of homeopathy, there is a need to verify the effectiveness of treatments by a regularly monitoring of treatment success at herd level.
