A company specialising in providing online advice on natural remedies has launched a phone helpline

Naurallypaws, a website which gives advice on natural remedies and therapies for pets, has launched a veterinary helpline for pet and horseowners.

The phoneline, which is open from 7.30pm-10pm, will be staffed by four vets .

Holistic medicine aims to treat the cause of the problem rather than just the symptoms.

“People need advice about holistic or natural medicine and veterinary surgeons who practise it are not that easy to find,” said Beverley Morel from Naturallypaws.

A donation to Thornberry Animal Sanctuary for every call made.

Calls are charged at £1.50 per minute (tel: 0906 9060493).

Conventional vet line services are available, via Infogenie, every day from 8am to 10pm contact (tel: 0906 9060494).
