Caroline Ingraham founder of Ingraham Applied Zoopharmacognosy (IAZ), has always had an enormous concern for the ethical treatment of animals and their welfare. Caroline has dedicated the last three decades to researching and observing how animals heal themselves; knowledge gained directly from the animals themselves. 

"Anyone with a passion for animals cannot fail to be affected by the inspiration that pours out of Caroline when she gives a workshop. To see the reactions of animals to zoopharmacognosy happening before your eyes is incredible, and often very emotional - it is a way of communicating with them to help them heal themselves, and Caroline is the person who introduced and developed this applied science to the world. I am forever grateful to her for what she has taught me." Michael

Applied Zoopharmacognosy


Ingraham Applied Zoopharmacognosy

Ingraham Applied Zoopharmacognosy (IAZ) enables self-medicative behaviour in domesticated or captive animals by offering plant extracts that would contain the same, or similar constituents to those found in an animal’s natural environment. 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 medical plants.
