Chris Day VetMFHom, VetFFHom, MRCVS
Chris Day has pioneered holistic veterinary practice in the UK, and his influence is worldwide. He is the Veterinary Dean of the Faculty of Homeopathy. He founded veterinary training in homeopathy in 1984, having been interested in homeopathy since he was 10 years-old. For over 25 years, he was the Secretary of the British Association of Homeopathic Veterinary Surgeons and has twice served as President of the International Association for Veterinary Homeopathy.
He qualified from Cambridge University Veterinary School in 1972. He became VetMFHom in 1987 and VetFFHom in 1991. He added other alternative therapies to his repertoire and, in 1982 he began using acupuncture in practice. In 1987 he founded the Alternative Veterinary Medicine Centre in Oxfordshire, providing a referral service in holistic, alternative and complementary medicine for all species of animals, possibly the first such dedicated practice in the UK.
Chris is the author of ten books on natural medicine, has contributed to many others and has conducted important clinical research. This work was featured in 1991, in the landmark BBC QED programme ‘Homeopathy – Medicine or Magic?’. He teaches worldwide.
He does not vaccinate any of his animals (including horses) with conventional vaccines at all, even as pups or kittens and does not use conventional vaccines in his practice. He relies upon homeopathic methods. He advocates species-suitable, varied, fresh and preferably organic feeding for all his patients, as part of a holistic therapeutic programme, to form the platform upon which to build health.
