Weekly Wag: Pet Rescue Remedy

Flower essences were first developed in England in the late 1920’s and early 1930’s by Dr. Edward Bach. After discovering certain flowers seemed to affect him emotionally in various ways, he began sipping the dew that collected in their petals and leaves. Bach found that the dew from each plant held a distinct power. Flower essences are liquid extracts which assist in balancing the emotions. Bach Flower Remedies are the most well known, but there are many other practitioners who develop flower essences.

Rescue Remedy is the most useful Bach Flower Essence of all, used to calm stress and fear. It is an invaluable addition to a pet first aid kit. It can be safely used after any type of injury. It will often revive animals that are in shock. Stressful situations~visits to the vet, being left alone, adapting to new surrounding. Fear of loud noises, such as fireworks and thunder, excessive barking or hissing.  There is now a specific Pet Rescue Remedy that has taken the minute amount of alcohol out and is a little more expensive. Most, if not all herbal, flower or holistic remedies that animals use are also for people.

Made up of five remedies:
  1. Impatiens~Teaches empathy and understanding of and patience with each other.
  2. Star of Bethlehem~For trauma and shock, whether experienced recently or in the past.
  3. Cherry Plum~Teaches trust in one’s spontaneous wisdom and the courage to follow one’s path.
  4. Rock Rose~For situations in which one experiences panic or terror.
  5. Clematis:~Is also used to bring clarity and alertness to the present moment.

Dosage: Mix 4 drops of Rescue Remedy with 1 ounce of water, 3 0r 4 drops can be given into the pet’s mouth or onto the gums every 5 minutes until a response is seen.

Animals have emotions too.They feel fear, anger, jealousy, and depression just like us.

The Bach Flower Remedies® are able to help our Animals when they have negative emotions just as they help us when we are emotionally out of balance. Unfortunately, we are not able to ask our pet (most of us can’t), why they act depressed;  but we do know if they miss a friend or gets overly excited around new people.

The Bach Flower Remedies® are 100% safe for animals.

Please do not use Rescue Pastilles on animals.
