Can Rescue Remedy Help Calm Your Dogs?

Rescue Remedy Natural Stress Relief for Pets With Doctor Edward BachYears ago, I worked at a health food store and it seemed to me the whole staff was crazy about Bach's Rescue Remedy.

I on the other hand refrained from using this wonder spray as it contained alcohol, which I do not consume. I will say that was one happy group of people to work with. Now, many years later, I hear that people are using Rescue Remedy for calming dogs. Naturally, because of the health aspects, the topic has gained my interest. There are ways of calming a dog during periods of stress; however, I understand that most people do not have the time or the patience to use training methods for calming their dogs. There are tools one can use to help in such instances, until one is able to totally reprogram the dogs' mind not to be afraid or anxious, such as having the pet wear a thundershirt, or  give their pooch a drop or two of rescue remedy for pets, on the dogs' gums, or even put into their drinking water.

Originating

In 1930, in England, a Doctor by the name of Edward Bach was convinced that the morning dew that fell upon flowers and plants had healing properties, because it contained molecules from the flower or plant itself. Being virtually time consuming to get the dew directly from the plants, Dr. Bach would boil the flowers in water; or if the sun was out he would steep the flowers in the sun, in a bowl of spring water. The flowers are then removed, and the remaining essence is then mixed with water and brandy (as a preservative) with a ratio of 50:50, this is what Dr. Bach refers to as mother tincture. Each of the mother tincture formula that are sold in stores are then diluted with other liquids, either, alcohol or glycerin. The resulting product is again diluted before use. By volume, the alcohol based remedy contains 27% grape based brandy as a preservative (roughly 50 proof). The non-alcohol based remedy uses 80% glycerin as a preservative.

Glycerin

It is important to note that there are 2 types of glycerin, one is derived from bio fuel processing, which can be harmful to pets, the other is from animal or plants and are not harmful to our pets. You will more than likely find glycerin in pet treats as opposed to pet foods. Supposedly, it will entice the dog to chew.

Calming Effect                  

Out of the 38 flower remedies, the pet remedy uses a blend of 5 of those, which are; Star of Bethlehem, Rock Rose, Cherry Plum, Impatiens, and Clematis.. It is said that the remedy is good for calming a dog that is showing signs of anxiety from thunderstorms, separation anxiety, loud noises, stress from traveling, and even used when a dog is fearful. Rescue Remedy to Help With Your Dog BehaviorUltimately, it is always beneficial to work with the dog, to help him to be calm. However, I see no reason why you cannot use the remedy as a tool, to help with training a dog to overcome his fears and insecurities. I personally, would never rely on a medication; herbal or otherwise as a replacement for a permanent solution.

Purchasing

Veterinarian recommended RESCUE® Remedy Pet is a natural way to treat pet anxiety caused by travel, separation, new surroundings, loud noises like thunderstorms and fireworks, and other behavioral issues associated with stress. It is available at Whole Foods Market and independent pet retailers. If you choose to purchase rescue remedy for your dog, please make sure it contains vegetable glycerin as a base. Alcohol is not a good alternative to give to your pet anymore than it would be to give to your child. Rescue Remedy and Dog Seat Covers: Cargo, Dog Bed Liner, Bed Cover: 30% Off Premium Seat Covers

I was inspired to start a website because of my latest rescue dog Rocky.  When I got Rocky, he was totally out of control. Destroying everything he came into contact with. I have always had a knack with working with dogs, and because of this within a few weeks Rocky was a very different dog. I was able to put my dream of writing and my passion for dogs together in a website in hopes of helping others with common and not so common dog issues.

Rear Bench Seat Cover

I have purchased several seat covers from area pet stores and have returned them. I love the one I got from 4Knines because it was easy to install, it's shaped just like the bench seat in my car, its nice looking and it doesn't slide around. I have a large dog and a medium sized dog and the cover stays put! Thanks, 4Knines!

Seat cover

We have 2 big dogs and an hour and a half trip to the lake house. The lab sheds black hair everywhere on the tan leather, the Goldendoodle but he has long nails and left little holes in the seat of the car I had before. Got the new car and immediately ordered your cover, it came in quickly, was easy to install and saved the new car lots of damage. Love it! Recommend it highly!
