Bach rescue remedy is a good idea. There is another herbal tincture that is available called Tranquility Blend by Animals' Apawthecary. I have used this with my dogs (hate the vet) and it calmed them down almost immediately. My 6 year old bearded collie made her first trip on a leash WITHOUT PULLING on this stuff! I was very impressed! (Poor dear, she never quite got the hang of walking nicely on a leash! Too much Tigger-type bounce in her!)It is a blend of Organic Valerian, Skullcap, Passion flower, and Oatstraw in a glycerine base. The taste (yes, I tasted before giving!) is kind of sweet, so both of my dogs don't mind my giving it to them by eyedropper.

Animals Apawthecary, Tranquility Blend Liquid for ..
I have found western herbal formulations to be more reliable than homeopathics; however, they are very dose dependent. They only work if you give enough. I use glycerin extracts for dogs and cats. They are weaker than alcohol extracts, but sweeter, therefore much more palatable, especially for cats. My favorite product is the Animal Apawthecary Tranquility Blend. This liquid is safe for a dog or cat. I recommend one full dropper orally for a cat or tiny dog, up to four full droppers for a large dog such as a retriever. This takes twenty to thirty minutes to relax your pet, so you need to plan accordingly. This can be used several times in one day if needed. This should not be used daily, long term. The energetics of foods and herbs can diminish or exacerbate anxiety. The Animal Apawthecary Blend of valerian, skullcap, oatstraw and passion flower was expertly formulated by Greg Tilford, a trusted herbalist who authored “Herbs for Pets” and harvests quality plants from his land in Montana.
