  • Please note…
    I am only able to treat animals under my care. If you are not able to see me or get me to visit (anywhere in UK or Europe), then please go to for homeopathic vets, for acupuncture vets or for herbal vets for your animal.

    If you have a sick animal, or even think you MAY have a sick animal, now is the time to act. I see too many cases where animals are presented too late.

    Please, please – the earlier you contact the appropriate therapist/clinician, the higher are the chances of regaining full health.

What we do

WSAVA Guidelines

In 2010 the World Small Animal Veterinary Association published the ‘Guidelines for the Vaccination of Dogs and Cats’. The document promotes Titre Testing and states that the core vaccines last ‘for three years, if not longer’, which allows vets to legitimately reduce the number of vaccines given to cats and dogs, something that homeopathic vets have been calling for for decades.

The Practice

Holisticvet is based in Bath, at the Apthorp Chiropractic and Holistic Centre.

Visits can be easily arranged to horses, dogs and cats throughout the country. Please phone reception on 01225 487778. As a fully qualified vet, I am able to offer a broad range of holistic and more conventional therapies at my practice.

The information contained on this website is not meant to supplant the advice of your own veterinary surgeon, but to work in parallel with them in an integrated and complementary fashion for the health and welfare of the animals concerned.
