About Naturally Animals
Naturally Animals is a small privately owned company owned by Catherine Edwards, an Animal Health Practitioner, to meet the increasing demand for excellent quality organic herbs and therapies for all animals.
We are the number one UK supplier of organic herbs for horses, herbs for dogs and herbs for other animals.
During my extensive research as an Animal Iridologist & Applied Zoopharmacognosist, it
has become increasingly apparent that organic herbs for our animals
can play a crucial role both in nutritionally supporting our animals
where their existing diets and habitats are unable to do so.
an inherent ability to rebalance themselves, however are only able to
do this if presented with a suitable selection of secondary compounds
(natural plant extracts) found in essential oils, clays, vitamins,
algae, minerals and organic herbs which they then freely self select. By
enriching the animals environment, and therefore facilitating a more
natural self-medicative environment, owners can facilitate their animal
by balancing on both a physical and emotional level. Applied
Zoopharmacognosy practitioners facilitate the enhancement of an animals
environment by offering a selection of excellent quality secondary
compounds such as oils, algae, clays, organic herbs and powders for self
selection. A key aim of Naturally Animals is to provide a suitable
range of herbs to meet this need. As Applied
Zoopharmacognosists we do not diagnose, but simply offer the herbs on the basis of the symptoms displayed by the animal and
observe the animals reactions. We are trained to recognize distinct
behavioural profiles exhibited by animals in response to plant secondary
compounds and minerals. We also provide the owner with information on
the properties of the herbs, and teach the owner how to work
with the secondary compounds with their animal(s) for health
During the Consultation
With our range of therapies, we offer a unique opportunity to address and maintain your animal's individual needs. A consult may involve Iridology, Applied Zoopharmacognosy, Red Light Therapy, Environmental Enhancement advice and / or Animal Communication, as
appropriate / required by the owner. A full environmental assessment
and information gathering is key to a successful consult to ensure that
we are aware of all circumstances affecting your animal. The owner will
be required to sign a permission form allowing us to work with your
animal. If a full consult is booked, an initial iridology examination
will be undertaken, which is totally non-invasive. Then a range of
appropriate secondary compounds will be offered to your animal
allowing them to select those herbs needed to nutritionally
maintain health and well being. Observations are noted with regards to
their behaviour towards the herbs offered. Every animal is
different depending on their constitution, environment, inherent
weaknesses and preferences. A written report with recommendations will
be provided at the end of the consult. If required a Red Light consult
may be undertaken or recommended.
Whilst not a legal requirement to ask a
vet's permission to hold an Applied Zoopharmacognosy or Iridology
consult with your animal, owners will be advised that their vet should
be informed both of the animals condition and of the consultation. This
is a professional courtesy and also supports the owners duty of care and
ensures that an animal will not miss out on any appropriate veterinary
care. We abide by the Ingraham Academy of Zoopharmacognosy Code of
Ethics and Professional Conduct at all times. As with all complementary
therapists, we work with the veterinary surgeons act which requires the
vet to be aware of their presence for Red Light Therapy.
We do however recognise that a self
selection consultation is not always possible and that there is a need
for high quality and strength herbal products for animals. To meet this
need we are delighted to offer a range of products that suit individual
requirements and circumstances. Naturally Animals has the support of
internationally renowned herbalists James and Vanessa Hart, and their
product ranges James Hart Solutions - available for horses and dogs.
For those unable to have a personal consult, we also provide an on-line and telephone advice service.
If you have a questions about your animal, please feel free to email
and/or call us. We would rather offer support and advice to ensure you
are ordering the correct products for your animal. Please note that as
we are out of the office a lot during the day undertaking consults, if
your call is not answered please do leave a phone or email message and we
will call you back within 24 hours.
We hope you enjoy our site and are happy to discuss any individual requirement with you - please see the Contact Us page.
we are unable to help you personally we work with a wide range of
Equine and Canine Therapists in various disciplines, so we are able to
refer to other excellent practitioners if required.
