You may know or heard of Bach's Rescue Remedy, a blend of 5 of the 38 Bach Original Flower Remedies created by Dr Edward Bach over 80 years ago to help people cope during times of emergency or crisis, but did you know that there is now a Bach's Rescue Remedy Pet which contains the same blend of Original Flower Remedies but in an alcohol free preservative to safely help your pet overcome a variety of stressful or emotional situations.
The special mix of flower remedies are:
Rock Rose ~ for situations in which the animal experiences feelings of panic and terror to be replaced by feelings of courage and calmness
Impatiens ~ addresses feelings of irritation and impatience and restores feelings of relaxation
Clematis ~ addresses inattentiveness and lack of interest and restores an interest in life
Star of Bethlehem ~ helps animals that have experienced abuse, trauma or shock, whether recently or in the past, to let go and enjoy life again
Cherry Plum ~ helps those animals who appear to have of lost control to restore feelings of self-control
When To Use:
Bach Rescue Remedy Pet can be particularly useful for small animals and birds when they need help to achieve an immediate calming effect from the following situations.
Visits to the vet
Fear of loud noises - fireworks, thunderstorms etc
Shock, trauma or mistreatment
Adapting to the loss of a companion
Adapting to new surroundings
Before and after surgery - Bach Rescue Remedy Pet has no side effects and can be safely used with conventional drugs prescribed by your vet.
The dosage of Bach Rescue Remedy Pet does not depend on the weight or type of animal. Rather it depends on the situation of stress. However, for small animals and birds try 2 drops in their water bottle or on their food or even rubbed into the backs of their ears or paws. Bach Rescue Remedy Pet is not a sedative so your pet cannot overdose. It can be taken as often as required until you see a difference in your pets behaviour. Like people, every animal responds differently to stressful situations. In some cases, an immediate change is noticed while others can take several days. Persevere.
Rescue Remedy Pet is available in 10 ml or 20 ml sizes online, and you are supposed to be able to find it in chemists, health food shops and some supermarkets, but having had a good hunt I have only managed to locate both sizes online though Amazon.
