More InformationHow do wild animals stay healthy without vets, farriers & other human intervention?
It has been proven that animals instinctively know which herbs they need, & how much they need to bring their body back into balance – this is termed zoopharmacognosy.
Applied zoopharmacognosy then, is the science of making it possible for domestic pets including dogs, cats, horses and other captive (farm, zoo) animals to use their innate ability to self-medicate & keep themselves healthy by offering herbs & herb derivatives (macerated oils, essential oils, aromatic waters) as well as remedies such as green & red clay (which are known to counteract toxins) & other naturally-occurring substances. As one client pointed out – when we put electric fences around our fields, we can prevent our animals from foraging the field edges & hedgerows where many beneficial plants can be found.
Although we are based in Wales, we have an online shop where you can purchase high quality herbs & herbal products to be delivered to your door: Animal Self Healing
