All patients are offered advice on feeding natural, species-suitable, fresh and wholesome food and all are offered chiropractic assessment and treatment.
We also offer an on-line Video Consultation Service. This is truly international and is intended to help those who are unable to travel to see us, for whatever reason (e.g. disability, illness, distance, animal's inability to travel, foreign residence).

We treat all species, including cats, dogs, horses, ponies, donkeys, goats, farm animals, ferrets and rabbits, for any problem that may be presented. We turn no patients away.
This means that, in dogs, arthritis, allergy, atopy, skin problems, epilepsy, cancer, bowel/digestive problems, CDRM and respiratory problems are the most prevalent, in our daily workload.
In horses, we see many cases of back problems, laminitis, sweet itch, mud fever, head-shaking (head shaking, headshaking), ERU (Uveitis), COPD, skin problems, sarcoids, arthritis, navicular and digestive problems.
Daisy's Case - 18 w.o. female tabby kitten - Chronic Diarrhoea
First seen 28th July 2003 - constant diarrhoea (bloody) since May! (worse for protein food but OK on baby food)
Vet letter stated that Daisy's problem was very refractory to all sorts of therapy - histology: jejunum immunologically reactive - negative for parasites, negative for campylobacter - neutropaenia, lymphopaenia, monocytosis.
Blood tests FIV/FeLV/FIP all returned negative.
Full vaccination, incl. Leukaemia, just before she came to current home ex. Rescue (Blue Cross) & again soon after.
Diarrhoea started first, then salivation one week later. This appeared to be a possible case of vaccine-induced immune malfunction.

Annual Christmas Card since then (i.e. 2003 (see above), 2004, 2005, 2006) to say fine in every way:
Christmas Card 2005:
"It's hard to remember Daisy as the very poorly kitten I brought to see you in 2003 - I wish you could see her now - fitter and livelier than all our other cats put together!"
Christmas Card 2006:
"Daisy, whom you treated in 2003, continues to be our fittest and liveliest cat and a tremendous character!"
At the AVMC we have to treat many cases of feline chronic diarrhoea. Some cases can be very difficult to sort but we have been greatly encouraged by the overall results.
