Small Doses for Small Animals
Don Hamilton, DVM

Veterinarians and animal guardians alike, all over the world, have praised Dr. Don Hamilton's book, Homeopathic Care for Cats and Dogs: Small Doses for Small Animals, as the primary book on the subject for over a decade. The revised second edition contains new remedies in every chapter, as well as updated information in many sections, including his comprehensive chapter on vaccination, which now includes a section on titer testing and usage. Dr. Hamilton's introductory chapters on health and disease, as well as those on homeopathy, have commonly been praised for their clarity and comprehensiveness. The book contains a history of homeopathy and an overview of homeopathy, health, and healing, plus chapters on each body system's diseases and treatment. These treatment chapters also give clear indications of when it is safe to treat your companion at home, or when veterinary care is needed. Finally, Dr. Hamilton has added an entirely new chapter containing revelatory insights into the relationship between humans and animals, including how this impacts health. Available through your local bookstore (please shop locally) or at homeopathic suppliers and booksellers, as well as other online sources.

“This book is without doubt the BEST and MOST COMPREHENSIVE book to date on the homeopathic treatment of cats and dogs.” —Dana Ullman, MPH


Dr. Don Hamilton graduated from the Oklahoma State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1979. He practiced conventional veterinary medicine and surgery from 1979 to 1993 and operated his own veterinary hospital from 1985 to 1993. He began incorporating holistic methods into practice in 1986, and in 1993 he left conventional practice to concentrate on homeopathy. Dr. Hamilton has been studying and practicing veterinary homeopathy since 1986 and has taught in the professional homeopathic veterinary course. He began his training in homeopathic veterinary care with Dr. Richard Pitcairn; he has also studied with world-renowned homeopaths such as Dr. Francisco Eizayaga of Argentina, Dr. Rajan Sankaran of India, Alize Timmerman of the Netherlands, Drs. Bhawisha and Schachindra Joshi of India, Lou Klein of Canada, Jan Scholten of the Netherlands, and the Jungian homeopath Dr. Edward C. Whitmont of the U.S.  He operates a 100 percent homeopathy practice in New Mexico.  He lectures worldwide on veterinary homeopathy.

Dr. Hamilton has concerns about our interactions with companion animals and is interested in how these interactions affect animals, as well is in what these interactions suggest about modern culture and our own needs as humans. Dr. Hamilton is also a committed ecologist. He believes that all animals and plants have an inherent right to exist that is independent of their usefulness to humans.
