British vets are divided in their views on the effectiveness of alternative treatments such as homeopathy and acupuncture. There has been an increase in numbers of vets involved in alternative medicine, and demand for such services is strong. There is also an increase in usage of faith healing for pets. The British Association of Homeopathic Veterinary Surgeons has sought affiliation with the mainstream British Veterinary Association, which has rejected the application.
