Mapmaker - were you ever an attendee at the Skeptics in the Pub nights that used to be held at the King's Head off Borough High Street
? I went to a very entertaining talk there about homeopathy a few years ago. The crowd were mostly cantankerous, socially inept males but it was a great regular event in the area. They've now moved to a bigger venue at Holborn, which I've yet to make it to: http://www.skeptic.org.uk/pub/
I seem to recall that water has a molecular memory of the presence of the homeopathic ingredient, even when said ingredient is diluted to non-existent levels. Skeptics send out bad vibes, which interfere with the efficacy of the remedy at a molecular level, causing water to forget that it's supposed to remember the homeopathic substance.
I think I'd be worried about consulting any vet who believed - or purported to believe - this sort of guff, even if they were offering conventional treatments at the same time.
