Bach flowers remedies are made from the flowers of different plants.  They are not extracts but the essence of the flowers, that is, the vibrational pattern (or the molecular energetic behaviour) of the flowers that is imparted to water.  Dr Edward Bach was a highly respected bacteriologist and homeopath of the 1930s.  He was convinced that physical illness and mental states are interrelated, and that people who are treated for emotional problems would become well more quickly, so he developed a process whereby the healing potential of flowers corresponded with the emotions in humans.  Each of the 38 original flower essences that Dr Bach developed had a specific effect on mental, emotional or behavioural problems (Herbs for Pets).

Although initially developed for use with humans, Bach flower remedies are equally as valuable in the treatment of animals.  Remedies are very suitable for animals that exhibit behavioural abnormalities.  By matching the psychological/emotional symptoms of the animal with the basic signature of a flower remedy, healing of past and present negative emotions is able to take place.  When flower remedies are used in combination with a behavioural modification programme, results can be spectacular.

Flower remedies are completely safe and have no known side-effects.  They can be dropped directly on the animal's tongue or gums, placed in their drinking water or sprayed on the animal or in their surroundings. 

We can prepare a Bach flower remedy or a combination of remedies for your animal based upon his or her behavioural needs.  For cats and dogs undergoing a behavioural modification programme, remedies can enhance the programme's effectiveness and the emotional wellbeing of the animal.
