"And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind; and it was so. And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind; and God saw that it was good." - Genesis 1.24-25

At the Alternative Veterinary Medicine Centre (AVMC), we treat all species and classes of animal. An animal's value is not in its pedigree but in its being. Since each species is different and brings its own unique issues and considerations, we have prepared pages on our website to illustrate what can and, in our opinion should, be done for each. Here is a copy of the cat header page which, on the website, includes a list of clickable disease headings.

Rudyard Kipling wrote about the 'cat that walked by himself'. How well he had studied and understood the feline way of doing things. Cats are uniquely tuned in to life, both their own and ours. Cats are... well cats are cats!

Cats are obligate carnivores. Because they live with us, however, they suffer many of our diseases. They suffer heart disease and cancer, skin disease and arthritis, diabetes and chronic bowel disorders. We come to accept these as part of normal life for our cats, just as we do for ourselves. We believe that older cats should expect illness. This is wrong. Old age is not a disease, nor is disease an inevitable part of life. Our cats should be able to live to a healthy old age, dying with dignity when the time is right for them. Cats who are reared on a natural diet and not over-vaccinated appear to be able to do this very well.

We usually see cats at the AVMC premises but house visits can also be arranged, more or less UK-wide.

Whether we see cats at the AVMC or at their homes, we look closely at previous veterinary history and results of any tests or investigations. We take an extensive history, enquire into diet and lifestyle, ask about management of the home, garden and other environments and examine the cat closely. Of course, cats being cats, their roaming activities may take them into environments that we cannot evaluate but we can only do what we can do.

We then select appropriate therapy, whether homeopathic, herbal, acupuncture, chiropractic or other therapy. It may even be an integrated combination of these. We also advise on future management for health, to boost our chances of a successful outcome.

The reason for this strategy is to optimise/maximise healing ability, so that the best use is made of the extraordinary capacity of natural medicine to stimulate the regenerative and healing mechanisms innate in the body.

The use of homeopathy and other alternative therapies does not rule out the need for a proper examination and assessment of each patient, appropriate measures to repair injury and a study of natural lifestyle and diet, in order to be able to speed recovery. We have enjoyed a good measure of success through this methodology, seeing, as in other species, recoveries from diseases usually associated with a poor prognosis in conventional terms and wisdom.

  • Have you ever been told that your cat is now untreatable?
  • Have you ever been told that your cat must stay on drugs for his lifetime, accepting the risk of side-effects?
  • Is your cat ageing before his time?
  • Do you know what is in the foods or supplements you are using?
  • Are you confused by manufacturers' claims?

If so, there may be another way...

While the only promises that can be made are that we will always concentrate and put in maximum effort on your cat's behalf, and strive for excellence in the application of holistic natural medicine techniques, we are able to report an encouraging level of success in many troublesome and chronic conditions. A great many cats have surprised their human companions with their ability to defy prognosis and recover. Follow a full (and sometimes demanding) holistic programme and trust your cat's healing ability, for maximum chances of success.
