WHITETHORN EQUINE HEALTH
In late November we held our first Canine Zoopharmacognosy workshop online where 8 participants and their furry friends all came together on Zoom to learn how to use the self-selection approach with their Dogs. Some were horse owners and had already completed our Equine workshop and are already using this approach with their horses but were keen to learn the different techniques employed when offering herbs and other extracts to dogs. (Click here for details of our next Canine Online Live 3-day Wksp) It was great fun with several different interactive elements ensuring no 'Death by Powerpoint'
A learning pack sent out prior to the workshop contained herbs for human and their dog's to self select in order to experience first hand during the workshop how animals (and people's) taste buds adjust according to their needs. We also worked with Gunner onsite at Whitethorn Farm (Lab/retriever with stiffness/gut issues) and remotely with Pado in Cork (Belgium Shepherd with anxiety issues). All in all it was a great success with all humans (!) and dogs engaging with gusto and embracing the Zoopharmacognosy approach. Our next 3 day Canine Online Workshop is in Feb . Click here for more details. Very much looking forward to it!
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
