WHITETHORN EQUINE HEALTH
New additions available for your Apothecary!
We are excited to introduce a Worming Kit of selected extracts for offering - the extracts include Neem oil (organic), Neem pwdr (organic), Wormwood pwdr, Thyme, Clove and Garlic essential oils. We offer them routinely to control worm burdens here at Whitethorn Farm as well as implementing other management procedures such as Faecal Egg Counts and rotational grazing etc.
We have also sourced a new Co2 extract to add to your range of anti-inflammatories. Over the last few years in the Applied Zoopharmarmacognosy Industry, due to the concern over issues regarding obesity and pancreatitis (particularly with respect to dogs) there has been a drive to reduce where possible the level of carrier oils consumed during self-selection such as those found present in macerates. It is with this in mind that we have sourced and trialled Calendula Co2 extract here at our Clinic in Sligo. It's a sticky one that stains everything it comes into contact with yellow but very effective so the downsides are worth it we feel!
Hi! My name is Carly and I head up the Whitethorn Team. I am also a lifelong lover of Dogs and Horses. When my mare was having regular episodes of Colic I looked around for a solution and found Applied Zoopharmacognosy (also called the self-selection method and free choice botanicals). I was so impressed that I trained in this fascinating effective herbal approach and have gone on now to train others. That was over a decade ago and I am now part of the Whitethorn Team and work with horses and dogs all over the world to help them restore emotional and physical health. As part of the support we offer, we also supply herbal remedies at our online shop along with providing workshops and one-to-one mentoring (Onsite & Online) on how to work with them. We truly hope that you enjoy and maybe learn a little from our blog. Carly and the Whitethorn Team, Sligo Ireland
