The following veterinary homeopaths have contributed extensively, including clinical information from approximately 2.000 cases: Marc Bär (CH), Larry Bruk (USA), Christopher Day (UK), Liesbeth Ellinger (NL), Dominique Fräfel (CH), Monica Frohmann (USA), Bernhard Hornig (D), Peter Knafl (AU), Katarina Loukaki (GR) and Wolfgang Mettler (D).
All clinical veterinary additions are referenced to the practitioner and to the exact case (via an exact case reference number).

Additional help to find and understand symptoms
A new feature is the introduction of 114 specific veterinary symptom notes in Synthesis 9.1V. These notes explain key symptoms from a veterinary point of view or how these symptoms should be considered for certain animals or breeds.
There are now 5.125 ‘Green flags’ present at symptoms that have a specific veterinary therapeutic importance (This is 202 % more than Synthesis 8.1V: 1.700).
A total of 170 Concepts are now available for 11 categories of animals (this is 40 % more than in Synthesis 8.1V: 121 concepts in 9 categories of animals). A concept is a ‘Key-word’, ‘Theme’ or ‘Idea’, for example a specific animal symptom or behavior, that helps you to find in the repertory all related symptom(s) which you could consider.
The total number of links has increased to 512 symptoms (this is 88 % more than Synthesis 8.1V).
“All (veterinary) symptoms” are available sorted by chapters of the repertory. With this new ‘Quick Access’ you can see for example a list of all veterinary “eye” symptoms.
