Ingraham Applied Zoopharmacognosy
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.

Online & Workshops
Caroline trains both professionals and non-professionals in this new field of science and animal welfare. She teaches how to recognise and understand self-medicative behaviour, while explaining the mechanisms that under-pin the science of this innate behaviour, a behaviour animals evolved to cope with potential threats including disease and injury. Caroline’s research is on going and so the subject is constantly evolving. Each workshop, whether online or in person, shares her latest knowledge enabling you to reach the best possible outcomes.
Essential Oils, Books and other Herbal Extracts
We are a bespoke company offering a range of quality products, sourced directly where possible from the artisan grower. Our philosophy is to create a pharmacy for animals, whereby they can choose the plant extracts they need to heal themselves, as they would in the wild. To achieve the maximum healing potential it is important to use the highest quality essential oils and extracts. We only use recyclable materials.
