cases, the doses can be given every 15 minutes, up to 4 doses. For cases
that are not acute, one dose 3 times daily; this is often best started 5-7 days
before any situation causing anxious behavior, e.g. before kenneling. Once
a response is seen, administration should be reduced to 2 times daily and
eventually once daily. When symptoms clear up, discontinue use. If
reduction causes symptoms to worsen, original dosing may be continued a little
longer before reducing. If a remedy is working well and dosing is not
reduced, an aggravation of symptoms from overuse may occur. Stopping the
remedy for 3 days will reverse the symptoms, and then treatment can begin as if
using for the first time, weaning down as mentioned above.
Pets Under 1 lb: 2 drops in the drinking water 3
Birds: 2 drops in the drinking water once daily.
Small Mammals such as rabbits, ferrets, hamsters and pot
bellied pigs can be dosed by weight as for cats and dogs in previous section.
For severe cases a drop can be diluted in 1 ml of water
or other oral rehydration fluid and given to the patient orally, taking care to
avoid aspiration of the fluid into the respiratory tract by the patient. 3
doses whose volume is appropriate to the size of the patient should be given
from the diluted product over a 24 hour period, e.g. 2 drops for a mouse or
small budgie, 4 drops for a large guinea pig. For acute cases it can be
repeated as for cats and dogs in previous dosing section.
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
medication can be put in the food, water or milk. 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 patient. 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.
Basic precautions such as having company with the pet where someone
will sit and calmly talk to the pet and stroke it, if this is appropriate to the
pet, will all enhance the efficacy of the medicine. Desensitization with
CDs designed to combat phobias can be useful as can be behavioral therapy.
The use of diffusers can be done alongside this medicine, but will not in all
cases enhance the effect. The patient should be treated both with and
without the diffuser. Chemical sedation can also be used alongside Homeopet
Anxiety, but it should be possible to use much reduced doses to give the same
level of anxiety reduction, consequently with reduced side effects and can, in
many cases, be done without completely.
ADVERSE EFFECTS AND
CONTRAINDICATIONS: None known, other than reversible effect of
overdosage. Overdosage will result in a return of symptoms after the
symptoms have initially disappeared. Where either increased anxiety
or a return of symptoms occurs while on the medication, ceasing to use it will
alleviate the effect. Patients who are hypersensitive to homeopathic
preparations will show response to a single dose, which may not need to be
repeated for some time. For this reason therapy should always start with a
single dose and should a major response be seen, therapy should not be
recommenced until symptoms relapse, and then only a single dose 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

None known for animal use only. Keep out of reach of children.
Store at room temperature,
out of direct sunlight, and away from strong odors.

history of homeopathics used in humans shows a very high safety margin.
