More Information: 

Formulations are undertaken by Dr Charlotte L Gray MA (hons) VetMB MRCVS. I am a 2009 Cambridge Graduated Veterinary Surgeon with further study and experience in Clinical Veterinary Nutrition, but I am not a 'Board Certified Veterinary Nutritionist'. If you feel that you require a board certified nutritionist, please drop us an email and we can put you in contact with one. 

On rare occasions, it may be necessary for me to cancel your booking prior to the Zoom consult and redirect you to a Board Certified Nutritionist where I feel that the case requires it. In these cases, full refund is provided. 

Your Right to Cancellation: If you need to cancel, please email as at charlotte.gray@companionnutrition.co.uk. Cancellations requested with 5 days notice or more will be refunded. If you require a late notice cancellation, a partial refund will be considered at our discretion but is not guaranteed. 

 

Insurance Claims:

This is a veterinary service. As a result it may be possible to claim on insurance if the condition is covered. We cannot offer 'direct' claims, but we are happy to fill insurance forms free of charge (UK ONLY) where appropriate, so that your insurance company can consider reimbursing your fee. 

I've been redirected to 'VetChef' - What does this mean? 

I have recently joined forces with VetChef to allow me to offer a more streamlined service. It does not change the nature of your formulation, but the combining of our resources does mean we can now offer: 

  • Better holiday cover- As a one man band, up until now I have been unable to take any 'holiday' without knowing that my clients would then find it difficult to contact me. Combining forces with VetChef now means that, in the event that I am away, you will be able to contact one of my trusted colleagues at Vet Chef. (Please remember never to delay seeking medical advice if your pet is unwell - your own vet should still always be your first port of call if your pet is unwell). 

  • Better follow up - There is now 3 months of  (reasonable) follow up included with consultations. 

  • Use of the Vet Chef Online Portal which allows you to keep an online record of your pet's reports, adjustments and communication online for easy access.
