Notice - Complementary therapies for animals



Before using any alternative or complementary therapy with your animal, please remember to contact your Veterinary Surgeon for advice first.

Most therapists correctly insist on working alongside conventional medicine, and together with your Vet can often help the animal to improve its health. In addition in the U.K. there is a Parliamentary Act called the Veterinary Act which was passed to safeguard the welfare of sick or injured animals. It is an offence for any person, other than the owner of the animal to treat an animal, unless the permission of the vet in charge of the case or to whom the animal would be referred is sought and obtained.

Do remember that in different countries around the world, there maybe different laws as to what is legal or not, in working with animals with complementary therapies. If in doubt, do always speak to your Veterinary Surgeon first!
