Healthy Pets

A friend told me about Rescue Remedy for pets quite a few years ago. It took me awhile to find it locally and begin using it, but I am now a firm believer in this product. The full name is Rescue Remedy: Natural Stress Relief for Pets and is made by the Bach Company. The remedy is available specifically for cats and dogs, but also in a general pet serum.

Stress in animals is responsible for all types of behaviors, such as separation anxiety, anxiousness, or depression from losing a pet friend. I know it sounds strange, but animals experience many emotions just as humans. Rescue Remedy is a way to ease these emotions and resulting unwanted behaviors with an herbal product consisting of Impatiens, Star of Bethlehem, Cherry Plum, Rock Rose, and Clematis. If your animal is in pain, experiencing fright, shock, or grief, or is anxious, this blend will help calm them.

Rescue Remedy comes in a liquid and is administered in several ways. The product may be put directly into the animals mouth with a dropper or rubbed on the animal’s teeth or gums with your finger. Depending on the issue you’re dealing with, you don’t want to use this method if it causes the animal more stress. Alternative methods are placing Rescue Remedy in your pet’s water bowl, sprayed directly on the animal’s fur, and in the location where they sleep or spend time. Lastly, the remedy may be rubbed into the skin such as, behind the ears, on the paws, or nose area where it will be absorbed or licked off.

It is recommended to start with a few drops once or twice daily. If you see improvement, you’ll know the dosage is acceptable. If you feel the need to increase the dosage, don’t give more, but give it more often.

I use Rescue Remedy in the water bowl for my cats. Each day when I freshen the water, I place a few drops in the bowl. I notice my cats being less aggressive with each other, eating better, and they are more active. The remedy also seems to improve their coat texture and weeping from their eyes.

Rescue Remedy is available in health food stores or online at Amazon. There are also many published articles about the remedy and its uses. Check it out and improve your pet’s life by helping them remain stress free.

Strive to be healthy!
