Putting the Patient First

Here in these pages you can read about the various forms of holistic medicine for animals, about how alternative medicine may help your animal and about the work of the AVMC.

Christopher Day is a holistic vet, homeopathic vet, acupuncture vet, herbal vet, chiropractic vet and natural vet, who has more than 40 years of experience in the field. He uses an individualised and integrated therapeutic programme for each patient, using one or more therapies as needed in an integrated strategy, including advice on species-suitable natural feeding. All patients receive a chiropractic check and manipulation is offered if needed.

At the AVMC, we offer traditional values of professional care and holistic veterinary advice on all aspects of animal health, for all species.

AVMC Details

For your interest, we present here a few sites that are either complementary to this site or are sister sites, providing more in-depth information.

Video Consultation Service

Our Video Consultation Service has been established for the use of those who may be unable to travel to us or to whom we cannot travel, in support of a local veterinarian. This service enables clients from all over the world to have an on-line, real-time consultation from home, at a mutually suitable time (via webcam). So far, we have treated dogs, cats and horses by this method. Not every therapy is suitable for this medium but homeopathy and herb medicine can be done in this way, with the cooperation of the local vet.

Horse Vetting

We can offer a horse vetting (or pony vetting) service, designed especially for existing clients. Of course, this will be along holistic lines. It is open to all enquirers - enquire at the office: 01367 710324

Christopher Day was one of the first holistic vets in the UK. He has been instrumental in setting up training and qualification for homeopathic vets in the UK and internationally. He has been involved in the academic side of training acupuncture vets and of training and examining animal chiropractors.



Is someone who uses these therapies a 'natural vet', an alternative vet', a 'complementary vet' or a holistic vet'? We think the precise nomenclature is not as important as the service offered and the patient care provided. However, for those who are interested in these terminologies, we have a page discussing the issues around each.
