Yes, there definitely is a connection between the kidneys and heart, even is western medicine, but most allopathic vets may not see it that way.
Just to clarify about homeopathy. Homeopathy isn't related to traditional Chinese medicine. Homeopathy is a different type of "holistic" healing modality that may be used by any "holistic" type of doctor or veterinarian. A veterinary homeopath may be practicing homeopathy, in addition to Chinese medicine and many other types of holistic modalities.

First of all I'd like to mention that he is a DVM and practiced western veterinary medicine for 25 years when he decided there was more that could be done and so he began exploring and learning Chinese medicine.

This makes sense in the case of my cat Patches, as his recent health issues began with cystitis and progressed to the discovery of heart problems shortly after.

In many ways I feel western medicine and homeopathy can compliment each other.
