When you arrive for an Initial
Consultation with Registered Animal Naturopath Becky Hadfield at "The
Natural Animal Health Clinic", you and your pet can relax the time
allowed can be up to 45 minutes.
This is not a normal medical
consultation, as there will be nothing invasive or rushed. Becky will
prioritise you and your pets needs, by asking you to tell her all about the
history of your pet's condition and personality, likes and dislikes, what
you feed, previous illnesses, and any veterinary medications that they may be
currently prescribed or have taken in the past. Together you can really
take time to build a unique detailed picture of your specific pets health
concerns. If your pet has been diagnosed with a
veterinary condition or has recently had blood tests please bring
that information along with you to the appointment.
From this information, no matter
what the veterinary diagnosis, Becky is able to create a specific treatment
plan for your pets needs. Safety is always paramount, and reducing
discomfort and side effects is a major priority of treatment. Being a qualified
Animal Naturopath, she is trained to combine different types of natural
medicines in a way that will suit your pets needs. They may be Chinese herbs,
Western Herbs, physical therapies or Nutriceuticals and these will be selected and combined to ensure they can be used alongside
any prescribed veterinary medications your pet may also require, providing a
complementary approach to pet health.
It is important for Becky to keep informed
on the latest research and information in her field, and she takes time to
regularly attend conferences and webinar lectures to complete her annual
"Continued Professional Development" points, required by the
professional governing body "Natural
