The most common forms of administering the Remedies are placing them into the animal’s food or water; dropping them directly into the animal’s mouth; or rubbing the needed remedies on one’s hands before petting them.
There is no improper or wrong method of applying the Bach Remedies.
DOSAGE AND TIMING
Just a few drops (4 to 8 ) at a time are sufficient. For serious or acute conditions the remedy can be given as often as needed, even every few minutes. For most behavioral problems , you can give 3 to 4 times a day for 2 to 4 weeks. If the response is reached by that time, you may begin to decrease the dosage gradually.

It is also most helpful for your own pets prior to vet trips or any .
Essences are safe, effective and non-toxic. Essences are a healthy addition to the overall well being of your pet.
