A celebration in poetry of the human-animal bond and the place holistic therapies have in the treatment of animals

 ​
The human-animal bond is incredibly strong and has been ever since we began domesticating and caring for animals. Veterinary care is integral to this bond and CAM4animals believes there is a significant role for complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) within this.  Giving Voice has been published to honour this and to raise money for CAM4Animals.

Giving Voice was inspired, compiled and edited by vet Ilse Pedler of the British Association of Homeopathic Veterinary Surgeons, BAHVS.  Trained conventionally, these vets have gone on to gain further qualifications to add to the choice of treatments they can offer their animal patients.

The poems reflect a deep love of animals and pay tribute to the significant role CAM therapies can play in their wellbeing. Contributions have come from vets, doctors, supporters of CAM4animals and other poets who feel strongly that they should have the right to choose such treatment options for their animals where appropriate. Some poems are from established poets, others from people moved to write for the very first time.

There are poems about dogs, cats, horses, cows, a falcon and even a tortoise. Rescued animals feature alongside wonderful descriptions of CAM therapies. And most movingly of all, there are poems devoted to the grief felt when losing a beloved animal.from Rescue by Kerry Darbishire From Rescue by Kerry Darbishire
