Animals and memory
11 December 2017 (online)
This issue of Homeopathy features several articles involving animals and homeopathy. We publish the first comprehensive meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials (RCTs) of veterinary homeopathy, performed by Robert Mathie and Jűrgen Clausen.[ 1 ] This meta-analysis builds on a bibliometric study, by the same authors, previously published in this Journal.[ 2 ] That study found 38 clinical trials of veterinary homeopathic treatment or prophylaxis in seven species and 27 medical conditions. The large majority of studies were of non-individualised homeopathic treatment.
