One of my must have staples in my Dr Dolittle doctor bag is a bottle of Bach Flower Rescue Remedy. I usually spray a treat and give it to the animal I am working with right before the session begins. We use this at home for our rescue pup who is terrified of storms, BOOMs and fireworks too. I also use it for most of my human acupuncture patients. (People are soooo wound tight here in the DC area!)
From the Bach Flower website: “Works wonders for animals that are impatient, fearful, have been through a traumatic situation, have fear of thunder and fireworks or do not feel themselves.
Add 2 drops in their drinking water and you’ll see how quickly they return to normal.
Inactive Ingredients: 80% Vegetable Glycerin, 20% water
The original Bach Flower Remedies has been used on humans and animals for more than 80 years.” http://www.bachflower.com/rescue-remedy-pet/
