Ingraham Applied Zoopharmacognosy enables self-medicative behaviour in domesticated and captive animals by offering plant extracts that would contain the same, or similar constituents to those found in an animal’s evolutionary history. The practice encourages and allows an animal to guide its own health, since unlike their wild counterparts, captive and domesticated animals rarely have the opportunity to forage on medicinal plants. The extracts offered include a variety of essential oils, absolutes, plant extracts, macerated oils, tubers, clays, algae, seaweeds and minerals.
Based in Britain, Ingraham offers online consultations at affordable prices.
I actually took Caroline’s 10 day training course and was trained to work with dogs, cats, horses and humans. The information is fascinating and I witnessed miracles happening through this work. If you have a pet with issues that haven’t been properly addressed by vets or other practitioners and want an alternative way to treat, I recommend doing a teleconsult with her. A note to those sensitive to essential oils: these are a main remedy she uses in her toolbox, however, there are other substances like clays, minerals, oils, and dried plant material that are also used. Essential oils are only offered to cats via inhalation; never topically or ingested. Photos are of both of my cats being treated as case studies during the cat workshop. They both got a session with Caroline!
