We must strive to learn love of others, beginning perhaps with one individual or even an animal, and let this love develop and extend over a wider and wider range, until its opposing defects will automatically disappear." Dr. Bach - Heal Thyself.
Our pets are an important part of our families, and are the ones that usually greet us with much delight and enthusiasm. So when something seems to be wrong it is a great worry because they cannot tell us how they feel.
Once they have been checked out by the vet to make sure there is nothing physically wrong, we can turn to the remedies to help with their emotions. General rules to thumb before selecting a remedy we need to ask ourselves:
General rules to thumb before selecting a remedy for pets we need to ask ourselves:
• Are they a social or solitary species?
• Are they a predator or prey animal?
• Are they territorial, home ranging or nomadic?
• What behaviour is innate to this breed?
• Are they allowed to act out their normal behaviour?
• Are they being managed properly?
• Are they in fear or distress?
• Are they in discomfort?
It is probably best to try one remedy at a time to see if it works or not. The dosage is two drops from the stock bottle and four drops for Rescue Remedy. As the remedies are preserved in 27% grape alcohol they can be diluted in water, put on a treat, or applied topically. Rescue Pet is alcohol free.
Please note: The remedies will not change the inherent temperament of a particular breed or animal, but will help bring them into balance. The remedies do not treat any medical conditions directly. If you are in any doubt about the health of your pet, seek the advice of a vet.
