Steve - I am not a vet but I have had to count to 10 on your behalf ...
I am not so naive as to believe that clinicians (in any walk of life) are ALWAYS right -BUT I do think that years of training and work experience deserve at least a modicum of respect unless circumstance prove otherwise.
There is nothing wrong with wanting to try alternative treatments for animals if they do no other harm. It is, however, right that you highlight the potential side effects of some of these treatments so somebody doesn't suddenly start feeding their animal something without researching the facts.
It is also clearly ridiculous for somebody to try to tell you what surgical procedures you have or have not carried out!!
