Caroline Ingraham,  the founder of Applied Zoopharmacognosy,  promotes self-medication as a necessary component of domestic and captive animal health.

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.

Ingraham Applied Zoopharmacognosy adheres to the innate principles of zoopharmacognosy, but he difference lies in the offering and sequencing of plant based medicines and nutrients, to animals who do not have access to natural resources. In the training the scientific elements that underpin animal self-medication are also discussed. Caroline trains professionals in this field of animal welfare.

Animal gateway workshops: open to everybody. 

"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 applied pharmacognosy 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"
