Homeopet Joint Stress, produced by a manufacturer of the same name, is a family-owned business that produces a range of natural and homeopathic remedies meant to support good health in your pets. These products are meant to be given as a supplement to support your pet when they show various symptoms of distress, discomfort or other issues.
There are a wide range of these supplements and the pricing is usually between $10 to $15, based on our examination of online pet supply retailers. Purchasing direct from HomeoPet presents higher prices; the Joint Stress supplement was $17.49 per bottle.

How Does It Work?
This product’s various formulations contain carefully prepared micro-doses of various compounds, chosen and blended by homeopathic experts to address various physical problems your pet might be facing.
It is sold in liquid form, with an individual bottle containing sometimes several hundred servings of the product, and the micro-doses are of such low total amount that there is essentially no risk of toxicity when given correctly.
It comes in a liquid form that contains a small amount of alcohol, which may cause some reaction in pets though it is far too small to be harmful. You can either administer it to your pet orally or add it on top of food or in water. In the latter case, if your pet reacts to the alcohol smell, it can be allowed to “air out” for twenty or thirty minutes safely.
Ingredient In HomeoPet Joint Stress – Are They Safe & Effective?
As a homeopathic supplement, these products have extreme micro-doses of their active ingredients; under homeopathic theories, smaller doses correctly prepared can have stronger effects than larger doses. Each individual formulation contains a variety of “remedies” (a traditional homeopathic term) chosen in order to address the overall suite of complaints.
According to research Arnica is often used by holistic veterinarians to treat strains, sprains, muscle aches, and other bruising-related injuries. Animals that require arnica are frequently in a lot of discomfort after an accident. This treatment is an excellent addition to your pet’s first-aid box. 
Rhus tox may be beneficial to your pet if they are experiencing pain as a result of arthritis or other musculoskeletal problems, as it is mostly beneficial for joint discomfort and sprains. Rhus Tox may be advised for your pet if they are stiff when they wake up but loosen up with activity.
Hypericum aids in the treatment of nerve damage. It is especially useful for hits to the extremities, such as the toes and tail, which contain complicated nerve clusters.
Topically, calendula is utilized for its anti-inflammatory and weak antibacterial (antiseptic) qualities. “Clinical evidence suggests that calendula helps hasten wound healing.” Calendula has been shown in clinical studies to hasten wound healing.
Hamamelis Virginica Dilution is a powerful pain reliever that can help with pains related to hemorrhages, varicose veins, and hemorrhoids. The primary role of this medication is to alleviate pain in the affected areas.
The product has no known clinical side effects when used according to directions. However, it does contain a small amount of alcohol, which could harm your pet if they were very small and somehow consumed the entire product bottle.
Q: Are there HomeoPet products for specific sorts of pets?
A: Yes, HomeoPet provides a range of formulations targeted towards different kinds of pet animals, including horses. Some products are also intended for any pet. Check the formulation carefully. However, all homeopathic products are unlikely to contain enough active compounds to cause your pet any distress, unless they manage to eat or drink an entire bottle!
Q: Is this product allergenic?
A: Homeopathic preparations include such small micro-doses that they are unlikely to activate an allergic response in your pet. However, you may want to check the label thoroughly for ingredients like shellfish or other allergens.
Q: What are the dosage instructions of using this product?
A: While results vary from product to product, the Joint Stress formula is typical, and the instructions for this are:
For dogs under 20 pounds, 5 drops equals one serving; 21-60 pounds, 10 drops equals one servings; 61-100 pounds, 15 drops equals one serving; 100 pounds on up, 20 drops equals one serving. Give three servings daily until symptoms seem to be easing, and then reduce to two servings, then one. (For reference, each bottle contains a minimum of 450 drops of the product in liquid form.)
For other mammal pets (ferrets, cats, etc.) feed as if they are dogs of equal weight. For very small animals (under 1 lb) or caged birds, add two drops to the fresh drinking water supply per day.
HomeoPet appears to be a reputable manufacturer of homeopathic products, and their line of pet supplements is available through many retailers. However, it is difficult to put full faith in them. While their products may be inexpensive at a glance, they require a large amount to be used for larger pets. You may be able to find more economical options if you shop around – be sure to check the entire listing, not just the apparent size of the package!
