Basic precautions such as having company with the pet where someone will sit and calmly reassure the pet, if this is appropriate to the pet, will help maintain a calm environment. Desensitisation with CDs designed to combat phobias can be useful as can be behavioral therapy. The use of diffusers can be done alongside this product.

Optimally, the liquid preparation should be dropped directly into the mucous membrane of the mouth including lips; ideally in dogs by pulling out the labial pouch, and in cats by raising the head until the mouth opens. Where an animal finds this distressful, or an owner is unable to comply, the product can be put in the food, or water. Where animals are sensitive to the odor of the alcohol preservative, a 10-20 minute period should be allowed for dilution and evaporation before the liquid or food is presented to the pet. Occasionally, animals will shake their heads as a response to the alcohol preservative; cats may salivate excessively and in these cases, presenting it in food, water or milk works. It can also be added to a sprayer and misted in the air around severely affected patients to calm them down, or dropped around bedding area 3-5 times daily.
DOGS/CATS: Under 20 lbs/10 kg, 5 drops; 21-60 lbs/ 10-30 kg, 10 drops; 61-100 lbs/ 30-45 kg, 15 drops; over 100 lbs/45 kg, 20 drops.
In acute cases (those with sudden onset), the amount (dependant on weight) can be given every 15 minutes, up to 4 times.
For cases that are not acute (chronic long term problems), give one amount (dependant on weight) 3 times daily; this is often best started 5-7 days before any situation causing anxious behaviour, e.g. before a fireworks display.
Once a response is seen, administration should be reduced to 2 times daily and eventually once daily. If reduction causes signs to worsen, original amounts may be continued a little longer before reducing. If the product is working well and the amount is not reduced, an aggravation of signs from overuse may occur. Stopping the product for 3 days will reverse the signs, and then administration can begin as if using for the first time, weaning down as mentioned above.
Please be advised this product is a homeopathic supplement only, not a medicine and should not be used as a substitute for veterinary care. please seek advise from a specialist if symptoms persist or worsen.
There are no known side effects other than reversible effect of overuse. Overuse will result in a return of signs after the signs have initially disappeared. Where either increased anxiety or a return of signs occurs while on the homeopathic remedy, ceasing to use it will alleviate the effect. Animals who are hypersensitive to homeopathic preparations will show response to a single administration, which may not need to be repeated for some time. For this reason it should always start with a single administration and should a major response be seen, administration should not be recommenced until signs relapse, and then only a single administration given for maximum effect. Although there is no evidence that there are any safety issues, extra care should always be taken when dealing with pregnant animals. Should a suspected adverse reaction be seen or advice needed, please contact HomeoPet LLC.
Store at room temperature, out of direct sunlight, and away from strong odors.
