Holistic Vet
with 'rescue'

Main Site (over 600 pages of information and opinion):

The Alternative Veterinary Medicine Centre offers a referral or second opinion service in holistic medicine, acupuncture, herbal medicine, homeopathy and chiropractic manipulation, 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. We do not specialise in any particular species, disease or organ system and we use a wide range of natural holistic therapies.
We offer video consultations for those who are too distant to travel, live abroad or cannot travel to us for other reasons. This service is also available for horses.

Natural Dog Care by Christopher Day
Guide to holistic care

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 founded the AVMC in 1987, possibly the first dedicated alternative medicine veterinary practice (holistic vet practice) in the UK. However, he had been using homeopathy in practice since 1972 and 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 running the business, which had grown to a thriving five-man practice with four centres. He therefore set out on the specialist alternative / holistic route. The premises is a tradtional farm house and smallholding, on which no pesticides, agro-chemicals etc. are used. It is run on organic management principles and accommodates 2 acres of wildlife reserve.

Our Philosophy

We strongly believe in the need for deep respect of animals and animal life. We strive to maintain activities which do not adversely affect animal life or their environment and to avoid those that might. We have a positive environmental policy and have done so from the outset. We do not support vivisection or animal experimentation. Our work is to provide what you need to help you look after your animal.
