Bach Flower Remedies For Dogs

Pets are our true companions and are not detached from the stresses, strains and emotions we are experiencing. As they are feeling with us, or sometimes taking on our feelings, it is possible that they can be suffering quietly for many years. They either withdraw, become depressed and despondent or agitated and nervous. In some cases the animal will begin showing aggressive behaviour or become ill.

From the early days of discovering the healing potential of flowers, Dr Bach saw that his 38 remedies would benefit not just humans, but all living creatures.

Does your dog give you problems?

Dear reader, throughout my writing I have used the female gender but in all cases she refers to he and she, and her to him and her.

There is no doubt that because you are browsing through this website you have an interest and love for animals. You may be a carer of one or more dogs. Most of us dog owners certainly set out to give them a wonderful home, take care of their wellbeing (which includes good veterinary care), plenty of walks, good food, and helping her to socialise.

Nevertheless, some dogs come with a big challenge we didn’t account for. Perhaps you cannot let your dog off lead, she is not good with other dogs, she has a tendency towards aggression, she is fearful and shy, she is not all right with people, particularly children, or she might suffer from separation anxiety (see glossary) and therefore you are unable to leave her for any length of time.

All these issues are not only making the dog’s life a misery but your’s and that of your family as well. This cannot be underestimated as it is potentially a reason for a very stressful home situation, or in the worst case scenario re-homing might be considered.

It is not uncommon of owners to share stories about their animals: how they sense certain atmospheres, relate to particular people, mourn the loss of a family member, sometimes alert us to danger, or feel lonely and depressed. The range of their feeling-life is not only similar to ours as human beings but is in some way extremely refined.

There are well known cases about a dog that alarms the person who’s blood sugar level is about to drop dangerously low www.diabetes.co.uk/hypo-alert-dogs.html or of a parrot sensing the positive or negative news in a letter his owner is about to open www.sheldrake.org/research/animal-powers/the-nkisi-project.

From the early days of discovering the healing potential of flowers, Dr Bach saw that his 38 remedies would benefit not just humans, but all living creatures.

Due to their supersensitive nature, animals respond very well to the Bach Flower Remedies (BFRs). They have the ability to bring greater harmony, happiness and emotional health, in times of distress and trauma.

Questions and Answers

When should I consult a Bach Flower Animal Practitioner?

As soon as you notice a change in your pet’s behaviour or when you sense she is out of balance I advise you contact a BFAP. Chances are that your pet has been trying to deal with an issue for some time on her own but was not able to resolve it.

Please contact Agnes
