This happens sometimes. Please check your front porch, side door, back porch, garage area, bushes, and mailbox to make sure it's not hiding or jammed. Also ask your neighbors if they may have received it for you. If you still find nothing, the postmaster may have left you a notice for pickup that has been lost. Try visiting your local post office with your tracking number and see if there have your package there waiting for you. If your package still hasn't turned up in 3 more days, please contact us.
Please note that delivery times are often slower during Holidays. Parcels may take longer than expected to arrive. Usually the parcels are shipped out on the next business day after a Holiday (when postal services are closed as well) Thank you for your understanding.
Our ingredients are sourced from suppliers who meet our stringent vendor qualifications and rigorous standards, including the highest quality of purity and safety. Also, remember that Homeopathic dilutions are very different than using the actual full ingredients. All our ingredients and remedies are specially made to give the best possible results without any nasty side effects or harm to any of your pet’s organs (common for in traditional medicines).
Spraying the remedy in your pet's drinking bowl is in fact the most efficient way of ensuring he will get the remedy he needs on a daily basis. Water is the largest single constituent of nearly all living plants or animal tissues. Animal bodies may contain 50 to 95 percent water, depending on the species. (Up to 60% of the human body is water). Therefore, when you use water as the "means of transportation" for the homeopathic remedy, you ensure that your pet receives the remedy throughout his body, and in just the right amount too. And in some cases, it is also much easier than "fighting" with your pet to spray the remedy directly in his mouth. When you follow the dosage recommendations, even though your pet may not drink the whole water bowl, be assured that he is getting what he needs, even though he may be taking only a sip or two of the water. It is somehow difficult to understand how that is possible, I know, but homeopathy works differently from allopathic medication. But in our experience, water is the best way to administer homeopathic remedies. In fact, here at HomeoAnimal, we deliver remedies in their liquid form for faster absorption and effectiveness. Liquid is easier for the body to absorb, so the remedies can start working faster. Our remedies contain a trace amount of alcohol (20%) for conservation purposes only, and the homeopathic ingredient (usually organically sourced) is suspended in purified water.
Yes. However, to avoid any possible interactions between the medication or remedies you are already giving, we recommend you space the timing of your doses. We recommend taking our homeopathic/naturopathic remedies 15-30 mins before or 1 hour after any other medicines or remedies you are giving*.
*Probiotics & Antibiotics: Most probiotics should be given separately from antibiotics, at least 2 hours after antibiotic administration
You stop the treatment as soon as your pet goes well, has regained balance.
**Some remedies can be given as prevention or for longer periods of time but most cannot. Please only use remedies as directed and do not use any remedies as prevention unless indicated on our website or instructed by our Homeopath.
Since our labs are in Canada, they are approved by Health Canada which is the equivalent of FDA in the states. Every country has their own association, and if there was any issues with our approvals, the borders would not let it pass through into the USA. Up to now we have had no issues with the states, so you can rest assured all our remedies are approved and safe.
At the moment no. Our remedies are exclusively sold online for now. The thing is, with Homeopathy, we feel we need to educate the customers before selling these products at large. We are currently working on an educational system we could put into place, and this, because first and foremost we have the animal's welfare at heart. We'd hate to have people give their pets homeopathic remedies unnecessarily, In fact, it would be very detrimental !
All our Homeopathic remedies are specially diluted in distilled water in the best potency for animals. Our remedies also contain a trace amount of alcohol (20%) for conservation purposes only. This is mostly evaporated when spraying the remedy and with the trace amounts your pet would get, it is completely harmless. In some rare cases, a pet may be sensitive to alcohol which may cause some excessive salivation or some shaking of the head. If this occurs please see the next question to proceed with ways to avoid any trace of alcohol when giving the remedies. NOTE: when dosing small animals like birds, always dilute the remedy in fresh drinking water and not directly into the mouth.
The remedies are really only given as needed. Once the problems are gone, stop the remedies. If you start seeing the problem return, start the remedy again until it disappears again. You can judge when the remedies are needed again according to the symptoms you notice. (We can help you along the way if you are unsure)
No. Since homeopathy is given based on the symptoms that are observed in animals. However, in certain circumstances, for example, to prevent fleas and ticks and prevent mosquito bites, they can be given a few weeks before the start of the period to minimize discomfort.
**Some remedies can be given as prevention or for longer periods of time but most cannot. Please only use remedies as directed and do not use any remedies as prevention unless indicated on our website or instructed by our Health Advisor team.
When animals get better by taking a homeopathic remedy, can we imagine that they “know” they are taking homeopathic remedy. The testimonials attest that homeopathy is a system of alternative medicine in its own right.
It is important to follow the dosage indicated on the label or suggested by the homeopath. Giving more often a remedy can aggravate the symptoms of it. Therefore the healing time will be longer. Homeopathy does not act like other medicines.
Our remedies should be stored in a cool and dark place away from sunlight or heat sources and microwaves. For some, this is the fridge or for others the cupboard. Either option is fine and will keep the remedy good for future use. Just remember, if it’s a liquid formula, always shake the bottle before each dosage.
Our kits of remedies are made up of different remedies that are proven to work well given together and complement each other to optimise the results you will see. As for ‘mixing and matching’ our other single remedies together, there are usually no problems in most cases, however, you can always contact us any time to be sure your pet is getting the right remedies.
Our remedies are administered orally as they work from the inside to target the root cause of the issue. Topical use of our remedies (except our Silverpet) will not give you the desired results. In Homeopathic treatments like ours, your pet’s saliva or water are the best vehicles to transport the remedy where it is needed in the body and the healing will start taking place from the inside out.
There are no known side effects to date. However, if a pet is sensitive to Homeopathic or natural remedies, improvements can be seen within the first day of administration. If the problem or symptoms are gone and the remedy is continued, an aggravation of symptoms may occur. Ceasing to give the remedy will alleviate the symptoms. Some pets may salivate excessively when giving the remedy directly into the mouth. Adding the remedy to the water bowl or other liquid treat can prevent this.

Because our business practices are entered into and executed in the USA, and the majority of our business is carried out in the USA or other international countries, we bill in USD. This is the most worldwide used currency for all our international pet parents.
Our services are Canadian based - our web servers and business offices are in Quebec, Canada. We are a Canadian business doing business in Canada - therefore we need to collect and pay taxes as per Canadian law. Only Canadians need to pay GST and PST because they live in Canada. Everyone else in the world does not have to pay Canadian taxes on our services. The majority of our clients are American or from different countries worldwide. Canadians are a very small percentage of our client base. We use the US dollar as the measure of exchange to better serve the majority of our clients. Since we collect payments from Canadians in US dollars, we still need to collect taxes at Canadian % rates on those US dollars and then submit the taxes collected (converted to Canadian equivalent amounts) to the Canadian governments.

Their distilled form makes them highly concentrated and very potent, which in turn can potentially cancel out homeopathic ingredients. It doesn’t mean that they’ll cancel the remedies in every case, but the potential for reduced effectiveness is always there so we prefer they be avoided in any form (topical, diffusers, perfumes...) during the treatment period.
Essential oils are a form of infused oil obtained by distillation, and can be found in small bottles at natural health food stores and will be labelled as such (Ex. Tea Tree Essential Oil). However, sometimes they are included in soaps and shampoos. You can identify their presence because they will always be listed in the ingredients as an Essential oil ( ex: lavender essential oil). Regular oils such as coconut or olive oils are not included in this category and are safe to use along with Homeopathy. Just look out for the words Essential Oils in anything you have and use at home.
Organotherapy is a complementary therapy used in homeopathy to rectify diseased organs, glands and tissues by means of glandular and tissue extracts. Organotherapy uses organs, glands and tissues obtained from healthy animals raised for this purpose. It is administered in the low centesimal potency to repair toxin damage.
