Today, I would actually like to endorse a specific product to you that I learned about while doing research regarding an “aggressive” foster dog, Dr. Bach’s most famous Flower Essence formula. While originally created for people it is now available for your pup as Rescue Remedy Stress Relief Pet Supplement, one of the world’s best known natural stress relieving remedies for your dog. This supplement is a safe and natural stress relief. It is a homeopathic solution, alcohol-free and recommended by Veterinarians for helping to calm your dog during stressful situations.
I have read many reviews on this product as well as many stories of successful results. It works wonders for dogs that are afraid of everyday events like thunderstorms, fireworks, going to the vet or even being groomed. Rescue Remedy also helps your pup after a distressing event occurs such as separation anxiety, moving or getting lost.
I have even read accounts from others whose dogs suffer from seizures and have actually used this product in conjunction with anti seizure meds and add it to a little bit of vanilla Hagen Daz ice cream to help right after a seizure. They call it a Rescue Remedy Sundae.
I thought to myself, if this over the counter remedy can help dogs with seizures, it must be a great product! I bought it hoping it would help my foster dog that had fear based aggression issues, but it wound up being beneficial for all my dogs. It really does help them in stressful situations, it has even helped one of my dogs get through a thunderstorm without panicking when he would be so scared in the past I’d have to swaddle him in a blanket like a baby and walk around with him. It truly has become a product I highly recommend!
Rescue Remedy is made from a combination of five flower remedies, including Star of Bethlehem, Rock Rose, Cherry Plum, Impatiens and Clematis.
What is so special about these flower remedies?
- Impatiens – a remedy to help with impatience, irritability, agitation
- Clematis – for spaciness or faintness, detachment
- Rock Rose – for terror, panic, hysteria
- Cherry Plum – for loss of self control
- Star of Bethlehem – for trauma or grief
Rescue Remedy is a good example of how you can combine different essences to cover a range of states of mind.
Dosage is easy just use the dropper to add a few drops to your pet’s water dish.
Rescue Remedy does NOT replace your pet’s medication, it is to be used as a supplement. ALWAYS consult with your Veterinarian about its use for your pet and to be sure it is safe to use in conjunction with their medication. I have discussed its use at length with mine, and am very happy with the results!
I give Rescue Remedy Stress Relief Pet Supplement a 5 out of 5 paws!
