AVMC – 25 years old in March 2012!
Having used alternative medicine since 1972, Chris D established the AVMC as a dedicated Holistic Veterinary practice in March 1987
With 40 years of experience in the field, Chris is the UK's longest serving holistic vet and homeopathic vet – experienced in a wide range of species and 30 years experience as acupuncture vet.
What We Offer
One-stop service for veterinary homeopathy, veterinary acupuncture, veterinary herbs, veterinary chiropractic, LASER therapy and other natural therapies, for all species.
Our office hours are:
Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays: 09.00 – 17.00 (except bank holidays)
Tuesdays: 09.00 – 13.00
The AVMC is primarily a referral centre, for homeopathy, acupuncture, herbal medicine and other holistic, complimentary and alternative medicines. We invite referrals from the veterinary profession for homeopathy, acupuncture, herbal medicine, back problems etc., for dogs, cats, horses, ponies, farm animals and all species.
However, having been in the thick of alternative medicine for many years, we are involved in many other activities. Among these are teaching, education, lecturing, publishing and clinical research.
These pages describe our referral services and show the ancillary services of the AVMC, in research, in education, in welfare, in consultancy work, in Expert Witnessing and in publication.
We are happy to advise farms on Health Plans, companies on Natural Medicine and Nutritional matters and clients or veterinary surgeons on anything to do with our work, as described on this website. We offer holistic veterinary advice.
The AVMC is conducting objective analysis of clinical outcomes from cases seen. These results are being updated on an ongoing basis. To view them, click here.
We see animals at the AVMC premises and we regularly visit an area stretching from Wales to London, from Devon to Kent, from South to North Midlands and from Bristol and West Midlands to the Wash and East Anglia. Visits are mainly to see horses but we can also arrange house calls (home visits) for domestic pets. We see many patients from London and visit London homes.

Mr Day will give lectures or talks on many aspects of animal welfare, natural feeding, animal management, holistic medicine, homeopathy, acupuncture, herbs, integrated medicine etc. These talks are usually based on experience rather than theory and reflect a 40-year career in holistic medicine and veterinary practice.

Chris D is mainly known for his work as an acupuncture vet, herbal vet, homeopathic vet, chiropractic vet, holistic vet and natral vet. However, he also uses a wider spectrum of natural therapies, in order to offer each patient the best of integrated care.
These approaches represent a philosophy that is alternative to the current conventional norm but the use of alternative therapies does not do away with the need for a thorough examination and assessment. Nor does it preclude the use of modern diagnostic techniques where necessary. A holistic vet will take into account all these things, in addition to closely scrutinizing lifestyle, diet, environment, riding, tack, shoeing, grazing, stabling, management etc., depending upon the species.
At the AVMC, we try not to be ‘bogged down' by terminology or ideology. Much argument accompanies discussions on nomenclature. We do not mind whether we are called holistic, complimentary, alternative or natural. Likewise, it does not matter whether we are described as a holistic, natural, herbal, homeopathic, chiropractic, acupuncture or integrated veterinary practice. The medicine we practice is the best we can offer, for each patient and it matters not whether it is perceived as holistic medicine, alternative medicine, complimentary medicine, natural medicine, complimentary and alternative medicine (CAM – CAVM) or integrated medicine. We offer traditional standards of professional care, in an integrated package.
We accept no sponsorship from industry, commerce, insurance companies or any other commercial interest and we do not depend upon product or medicine sales, so our advice is truly independent and unaffected by profit motivation. Likewise, we do not promote commercial activities, so our links do not promote marketing material. We do not pay for search engine favors. Sadly, even in the holistic and natural medicine worlds, there are vets whose advice is attended by potential profits from product sales or links to companies.
