I saw an ad for a homeopathic remedy for joint pain in dogs and cats. Just how might this work?
- Placebo effect on pet: the pet sees that he’s being fussed over and feels better.
- Placebo effect on owner: the owner feels better because he’s fussing over his pet.
- Second-hand placebo effect on pet: the pet sees that owner feels better and then feels better himself.
