Homeopet travel anxiety

I just bought this stuff today. I tried to find the rescue remedy, but I couldn't and I am moving in a week. Anyways I am wondering if anyone has used this before. I read reviews online for this and people that have reviewed said that it worked wonders.
I am just being parnoid, but I am wondering if it can hurt them. I have 3 cats and a dog and this stuff says it can be used cats, dogs and birds. And it says that is all natural. I am only moving 2hrs away but I would rather not have stressed out pets during the move, it is a big change for them.
Also I don't want them to have accidents during the move, when should I take their food and water away. We are leaving about 9am.
Sorry for all the questions :)

I've used other Homeopet formulas with some success.

The thing with homeopathic preparations is that you're not going to hurt your animals in the sense of overdosing them or anything as the substances used are diluted to such an extreme extent as to be barely present in the liquid you're giving them. In homeopathy the more something is diluted, the "higher" or "stronger" the dose is considered, so you don't need to worry in that sense.

There is a whole discussion around the use of combined remedies (as Homeopet does) and/or using homeopathy to treat symptoms, rather than the whole animal, but I doubt you're interested in all that right before a big move. I'd say though that the worst thing you're likely to see is no effect at all.

Good luck with the move, I hope it goes smoothly.

in the directions... it says i can give it with water or just put the drops in their mouth... what would be the best way?

Either is fine. I tend to just pull open the dog's lip and let a few drops fall into their mouth, but the water is just as good.

I have homeopathic drops for the girls as we are flying next week (yes the time has come!!) anyway i tried it and didnt see much difference in them but im not keen on the kitty valium so i will continue to give them the drops just incase it builds up in their systems and starts to work :)
