does anyone know anything about rescue remedy - it's a product with:
-Impatiens glandulifera (for impatience and agitation that may be associated with pain) ;
-Ornithogalum umbellatum (Star of Bethlehem - for shock, grief, or fright) ;
-Prunus serasife (Cherry Plum- for hysteria or loss of control) ;
-Helianthemum nummularium (Rock Rose- for terror and panic)
-Clematis vitalba (Clematis- for faintness and bemused, stunned, ungrounded feelings)
It is used in animals to decrease stress. It's apparently all natural.
I was thinking about buying some for my little foster pooch, Buster (see: http://www.pets.ca/forum/showthread.php?t=13713
He's a really sweet dog, very affectionate -- but he's got serious seperation anxiety. It's to the point where I'm afraid he'll hurt himself if I leave. I'm meeting some behaviourists tomorow, so I'll know more about what I can do to ease his anxiety.
I've read up on this product and haven't really found any counter indications. Does anyone use it? Has it worked in reducing stress?
