Herb Vet - Putting the Patient first

Main Site
(over 600 pages of information and opinion): www.alternativevet.org

The Alternative Veterinary Medicine Centre (herbal vet) offers a referral or second opinion service in holistic medicine (herbal, acupuncture, homeopathic etc.), for any species of animal and for any problem.

We concentrate on stimulating and assisting the body's own healing capability, removing obstacles to healing and enhancing welfare. This is the holistic approach. We do not specialise in any particular species, disease or organ system and we use a wide range of natural holistic therapies.

We also offer on-line video consultations for those who are too distant to travel, who live abroad or who cannot travel to us for other reasons. This service is in support of local veterinary practices and is available for horses, ponies, dogs, cats and other species. Homeopathy, herbs and other natural medicines can be discussed.

Books for Sale.

The AVMC is actively involved in research (clinical research and trial work, NOT laboratory animal experimentation), teaching, education in general, authorship and in animal welfare projects.

Origins of the AVMC

Christopher Day, holistic vet & herbal vet, founded the AVMC in 1987, possibly the first dedicated alternative medicine veterinary practice in the UK. However, he had been using homeopathy and herbs in practice, since 1972 and homeopathy on himself for many years before that.

Chinham House was his family home, a country veterinary practice run by his parents, both of whom were vets. However, as contemporary veterinary medicine developed along less traditional lines, with differing values, Mr Day found that he was unable to continue the business, which had grown to a thriving five-man practice with four centres. He therefore set out on the specialist alternative / holistic route, offering more traditional values and service. The premises is a tradtional farm house and smallholding, on which no pesticides, agro-chemicals etc. are used. It is run on organic and biodynamic management principles and accommodates 2 acres of wildlife reserve.

Our Philosophy

We strongly believe in the need for deep respect for Nature, for animals and for animal life.
