Natural Remedies for Pets
There are many natural remedies you can use for caring for your pets and addressing their minor ailments.
This helps make their care more affordable and convenient when you can administer support at home.
Flower essences and homeopathic remedies work just as well on our furry friends as they do on us! They are 100% safe for all pets and can be used in conjunction with any medications.
For chronic conditions, of course consult your veterinarian!
Flower Essence Remedies:
I make a flower essence blend especially for pets. Stress Less Pet can help with calming anxious or injured pets, diffusing their stress and trauma and encouraging positive behaviours.
It is useful to support your pets when they are unwell, frightened with loud noises and fireworks or having trouble with separation anxiety. Vet visits, holidays and car trips are other great opportunities to use this remedy.
Emergency Essence is a good one to have on hand for pets for using in times of shock and trauma.
You can administer these orally, add to water or food or apply topically to the back of the neck.
These are suitable for all pets and you can even use them on injured wildlife!
Just like flower essences, homeopathic remedies can be used safely on your pets and they respond much the same as humans.
Owen Homeopathics have a great new range of combination remedies especially for pets, however you can also use any of the individual remedies as required also.
For home prescribing there is a huge amount of information here that can assist you in deciding what to use.
The ready-made pet complex remedies make it really easy for us to prescribe and use. They contain a blend of remedies and sometimes flower essences are included as well.
