More Information/ Terms / Costs
Practice Ts and Cs and fee summary above
While I have subdivided the modalities I use below, generally in fact I will use or recommend a combination of many or all of these.
The typical consultation will last for an hour or so and may involve a change of diet, addition of supplements as well as the use of herbs and / or homeopathic medicines as we feel most appropriate. I also use and can prescribe conventional drugs when we together feel this is appropriate.
I can advise on the use of home prepared diets raw or cooked foods which on its own can make a huge difference to many illnesses but more importantly prevent them from occurring in the first place.
Since covid we have used more and more telemedicine so if you want to book a remote Zoom consultation please contact us.

Please note I do not provide conventional services such as X-Rays, surgery, emergency care you need to retain a regular vet for these services. Although at my new clinic in Bangor myself or colleagues there can do most surgery and testing including X rays and Ultrasound
The consultation can be held in your home, Moreton on The Wirral or by video link.
It will last about 1 hour, I will need history from your main veterinary practice and will report back to them so they can alter treatment if necessary. They will remain responsible for other medications, routine and emergency care for your pets.
