Animals have emotions too! Sometimes they feel anxious or irritable or just plain down in the dumps. Fortunately there are things you can do to help…

The first thing to do is to make an appointment with the vet. This is a good idea even if you can’t see anything physically wrong. Sometimes changes in behavior are the first symptoms of a problem that might need medical treatment, so the earlier you go the better. Once the vet has given the all-clear you can think about taking the next steps.

The Bach Original Flower Remedies are specially formulated to help animals (and of course people) find the positive side of themselves. Whatever is in your pets way – fear, despondency, uncertainty – can find a solution in the Bach Original Flower Remedies.

Below are just some of the remedies that could be used with animals. Keep in mind that much like humans, animals too have very complex emotions and may benefit from using any one of the 38 Remedies
