The objective of this review was to assess the effects of homoeopathy in field of veterinary skin. Searches were performed using different databases and authentic literatures from year 2000 to till date. We retrieved 143 studies from the different databases and internet site searches. After removing duplicates through Microsoft excel. Two reviewers independently screened 131 articles which does not fulfilled inclusion criteria out of which 12 studies were screened 7 were excluded & 05 studies were included in current review by applying CASP checklists. The primary reasons for excluding studies were as follows: only abstract articles, in vitro studies, articles in other languages & not original studies.
Limited researches have been done on present topic which requires further researches. There is not enough evidence to reliably assess the possible role of homoeopathy in veterinary skin. As well as randomized trials, there is a need for observational data to document the different methods of homoeopathic prescribing and their respond.
