A Holistic Vet and Natural Vet - in the service of animals

What is Holism?

Coined by Jan Smuts, the word holism (adjective: holistic) applies to a way of thinking that recognises the interconnectedness and interdependence of all things. In a veterinary context, it indicates the approach to a patient that views the body (i.e. the collection of organs and tissues) as a whole and as being greater than the sum of its parts, that each part acts upon every other part and upon the whole and that each is in turn acted upon by every other part and by the whole. No individual part can be considered separately. It also considers the body in the context of diet, lifestyle and environment and the part that each of these factors plays in health and disease.


As a holistic vet, Chris Day offers holistic therapies such as homeopathy, acupuncture, herbal medicine, chiropractic manipulation, natural feeding advice, aromatherapy, tissue salts, bach flowers, magnet therapy, LASER therapy, ultrasound therapy etc., for all species of animals, including horses, ponies, dogs, cats, goats, donkeys, sheep, cattle, pigs, llamas, alpacas, buffalo, reindeer, ferrets, rabbits, reptiles, poultry, raptors and birds  of all types.

The Practice Principal is: Christopher Day (Chris Day), holistic vet, homeopathic vet, herbal vet and acupuncture vet of over 40 years experience in the field of holistic veterinary practice.

We are commonly called upon to treat such ailments as:
CDRM (C.D.R.M.), Epilepsy, Arthritis, Colitis, Spondylosis, Hip Dysplasia, OCD, DJD, Cancer (Neoplasia), Disc Disease, Cushings Syndrome, Back Problems, Lameness, Skin Disease, Eczema, Allergic Dermatitis, Atopy, Sweet Itch, Laminitis, COPD (C.O.P.D.), Navicular Syndrome, Periodic Ophthalmia (Moonblindness, Moon Blindness, Recurrent Ophthalmia or Recurrent Uveitis), Head Shaking (Head-Shaking, Headshaking, Headshaker), Wobbler Syndrome, Sarcoid, Diarrhoea, Vomiting, Liver Disease (Hepatopathy), Jaundice, Lymphangitis, Incontinence, False Pregnancy, Infertility, Corneal Ulcer, New Forest Eye, Mastitis, Itch (Pruritus - itchy), Dry Eye (KCS - Kerato-Conjunctivitis Sicca), Tumour, Histiocytoma, Mast Cell Tumour, Autoimmune (Auto-immune) disease etc.

In all cases, the principle used is to enable and to facilitate the body's own extraordinary healing powers, to achieve the result. Hippocrates is reported to have said: "The Physician treats, Nature heals".

Despite the fact that the case load of the AVMC is mostly animals that have failed to find help through the conventional approach, over a wide range of very refractory disease, we witness an encouragingly large percentage of positive outcomes.

We also offer video consultations in support of local veterinary practices, for those who are too distant to travel, who live abroad or who cannot travel to us for other reasons. This service is also available for horses.

With a deep respect for NATURE, we use NATURAL MEDICINES to exploit the extraordinary endogenous healing capability of animals. NATURE has the answers to most health problems, if only we strive hard enough to find them.

What does HOLISTIC TREATMENT mean for your animal?

When thinking holistically, we view the patient as a whole entity, rather than as a collection of organs and tissues. We treat the body and the body sets about correcting its problems. We do not single out a particular organ or a particular biochemical pathway for our medical attention. We take into account feeding, lifestyle, external influences of all sorts, as well as demeanour and character, when formulating a treatment programme. The holistic vet is able to call on a number of tnatural therapies, brought together in an integrative programme, for the treatment of your animal.

Some people appear to become hung up on terminology - whether to call us homeopathic vets, herbal vets, acupuncture vets, holistic vets, natural vets, complementary vets or alternative vets. Don't worry about it - plain 'vet' will do and we'll get on with the job.

Your animal's health and welfare are our main concern.

Case histories

Video Consultations (UK & International)


Holistic vets are in ever greater demand, as it is progressively more commonly realised that each patient is an individual and that chronic disease needs to be dealt with at that level. Mr Day is one of a growing number of holistic vets in the UK using integrated natural vet medicines and, having started in the field in the early 70s, may even have been the UK's first 'holistic vet'.
