"New Scientist has learned that the RCVS decided back in February to quietly remove a list of vets that offer homeopathic treatments from its official published register of licensed veterinary practitioners. Vets who believe it is against animals' best interests to undergo unproven treatments say pets should only be given orthodox medicines, and that the RCVS's list withdrawal is not enough. They add that details of homeopathic vets remain available on its website… The RCVS denies that its website supports homeopathic practice. "It's not an endorsement," says a spokesman. "The college retains the view that if people want homeopathic treatment for their animals it's better done by a registered veterinary surgeon."" New Scientist (1st July 2006)
