Integrative Medicine

Changing the way medicine is practised

Roehampton Veterinary Clinic is a pioneering clinic in the development of Integrative Veterinary Medicine.

The Clinic works with a patient-centred model of medicine that considers what is best for each individual animal. We seek to go further in caring for your animal’s wellbeing by integrating clinical excellence and compassionate care.

We are unique because we offer the best of conventional veterinary medicine, surgery and preventative health care, and also incorporate proven aspects from the world’s medical traditions. We are looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease.

Complementary Veterinary Medicine

Richard Bleckman is a visionary leader in bringing together Conventional Medicine with Complementary Medicine and integrating these with the research of Functional Medicine. 

Functional Medicine researches the effect of herbal medicine and nutrition and how these can be used to modify gene expression and consequently influencing health and disease. Genes can be influenced or switched to a healthy expression given the right environmental influences, lifestyle, nutrition and time. Thus herbal medicines, acupuncture, and nutritional supplements are used to correct imbalances within the biophysical and energetic body of the patient.
