A number of defenses of homeopathy have been offered in response to AVMA Resolution 3, declaring homeopathy to be ineffective. The most comprehensive, though not at all compelling or convincing, has been a white paper offered by the Academy of Veterinary Homeopathy (AVH), The Evidence for Homeopathy, in response to the CVMA white paper The Case Against Homeopathy. I have taken on the tedious, but I believe important, task of reading through this paper, and all of the references cited, to evaluate the quality of the arguments and the evidence. My response, The Evidence for Homeopathy- A Close Look, illustrates why this attempt to defend homeopathy, with the best evidence the AVH can muster, only confirms and illustrates the problems with homeopathy explicated in the CVMA white paper.
(Note I have made this detailed response a word document rather than a post or .pdf file due to the size and the difficulty in interpolating quotes from the AVH paper and my responses.)
