A message from Dr Sonya Leggett:

As a holistic vet, I like to spend time with each patient looking beyond symptoms to your pet’s character, emotions and environment, as well as past illnesses and diet. In this way, I can find the very best remedy or treatment, taking into careful consideration all the factors which may affect your pet’s health and wellbeing. I may use a variety of approaches or therapies, depending on my observations:

Homeopathy

a system of medicine based on the principle of ‘let like be cured by likes’. We use medicines from animal, vegetable or mineral sources and more recently, man-made substances. We find the correct stimulus to encourage the body’s natural ability to heal itself and also take care to remove or minimise anything that may stop that healing process.

 

Herbal medicine 

using plants to heal as people have done for centuries, now verified as a safe and scientifically-sound approach, backed by detailed knowledge of plant chemistry and botanical therapeutics.

Nutrition

Many pet foods, even expensive brands, don’t adequately meet the dietary needs of animals. Ill-health and behavioural problems can be the result. Raw food and a specifically-formulated diet is the way to go.

Allopathic medicine 

while complementary treatments are always my first choice, I wouldn’t hesitate to use other medication if that was the best option for your pet.
