HEVN (Holistic Exotic Veterinary Nutrition) is a forage range formulated by Dr Krissy Green in consultation with Dr Reagan Carnwath from Herbalvet® Scotland, and has been beautifully produced by Hoptoforage®. 

The regulation of diet has been successfully used to support exotic patients with medical conditions. This is therapeutic nutrition, the deliberate modification of a patient’s usual diet to supplement the medical or surgical treatment of an illness or disease. Therapeutic nutrition can be useful in disease management to promote a greater resistance to a specific condition and to help prevent or reduce acute flare up episodes. It is not intended to be used in place of appropriate medication or veterinary attention. 

HEVN mixes have been formulated using plants that are safe for consumption not just for bunnies and other companion small mammals and birds, but herbivorous and omnivorous reptiles as well! At present, mixes cover dietary support for liver disease, respiratory conditions, gastrointestinal dysregulation and stress with further mixes in the planning stages. 

If you think your pet might benefit from specific nutritional support for a medical condition, please discuss this with your vet. If you are a vet who feels a patient may benefit from support with one of our HEVN mixes and would like to order it, please get in touch with Hoptoforage®. For advice, information or enquiries please contact Dr. Krissy Green at enquiries.hevn@gmail.com.
