Professional Reviews

Animal Self-Medication is an essential addition to the library of any functional medicine veterinarian, healer or animal guardian looking to resolve physical or emotional health obstacles by including the patients wants and needs in the recovery process. This complete and in-depth volume looks at applied zoopharmacognosy as it applies to a variety of both wild and domestic species, including detailed studies and case reports, as well as a comprehensive 'how to section.' Caroline's work is an important step forward in recognising the invaluable role of patient participation for the complete restoration of emotional and physical health and wellbeing.
Karen Shaw Becker, DVM, Proactive Veterinarian, USA

This book is nothing short of amazing. Caroline s healing art is in listening and watching each animal, and helping them to choose what remedies they need and how much to treat themselves with. This holistic approach to animal health care is the crystallization of Caroline s professional experience, the wisdom of centuries of human experimentation with medicinal plants and modern science. As a zoologist, long involved in the scientific study of animal self-medication in the wild, I am grateful to Caroline who has taken an active role in successfully putting the discipline to practical use.
Michael Huffman, MSc.D.Sc. Kyoto University, Japan

In 'Animal Self-Medication,' Caroline continues to inform and inspire all those who love and work with animals. She expertly challenges us to provide animals with the opportunity to assert and demonstrate their innate ability to address their own emotional and physical challenges. Furthermore, she motivates us to improve the care we provide: through refining our observational skills, extending our knowledge of applied zoopharmacognosy, providing appropriate remedy choices and enhancing our respect for self-selection. This text, richly illustrated with case examples, provides essential underpinning information and guidance for enabling self-medication as a means to achieving and maintaining optimal animal health.
Rhiannon Lewis FIFPA, Clinical Aromatherapist, France
