Active Ingredients  
  • Calcarea Phosphorica 30c & 200c
    Calcium phosphate
    The animal requiring this remedy often looks like a heavier version of an Irish Red Setter and is usually just as hyperactive. They can be destructively chewing furniture and plants or digging holes in the garden. They are often wanderers, leaving their owners and going from house to house. They require endless love and companionship and feel that there is not enough at home when infact there is but they are uable to realize that. Calc-Phos types are terrified of thunder and will shake and tremble while in company during a storm or similar event, but without company they are likely to bolt during a storm and disappear for several days, even after the storm has ended, running until they find someone, or another animal, to comfort them. They can run for miles and miles when they suffer from storm stress.

     Gelsemium
  • Gelsemium 6c, 30c & 200c
    Yellow Jasmine
    Animals requiring Yellow Jasmine (Gelsemium) are often referred to as “the trembler.” With Yellow Jasmine there is quivering, which can range from a muscle group to the entire body, both inside and out. It is the remedy for anticipatory anxiety and is often used for show fear (stage fright in humans). The animal can have diarrhea or involuntary urination when under extreme stress. Those requiring its action can even become sluggish to move and be virtually paralyzed by their state of fear, standing frozen, but with their back legs shaking. Unlike some of the other ingredients, its state will onset after the first indication of a storm or firework and may even be a preparation done by the owner, for example, taking out boards to cover windows may start the animal’s trembling. This often leaves the owner wondering what set it off. It is a great test ingredient in humans – anticipation of some terrifying event is a key symptom.

    Lycopodium
  • Lycopodium 6c & 30c
    Lycopodium
    Lycopodium type animals have a fear of wind and storm sounds. They are the brave pet that is filled with insecurities, typically the dog who will growl at strangers while still wagging its tail, much like many German Shepherd dogs. Like Gelsemium types they suffer from anticipatory anxiety and will often perform poorly at shows or anywhere they are worried about what will happen. They are fine on their own territory. They often have a fear of men, more than women, particularly when they speak in a deep tone.They often get flatulence or a growly tummy when they are anxious, especially during a howling or whistling wind and the anxiety induced flatulence can even extend to colic, which can occur in any species. They are worse for being closed in a stuffy warm room. When a room is closed up by drawing curtains and closing windows to cut down on storm noise, it should not be over stuffy

     
  • Natrum Carbonicum 30c & 200c
    Carbonate of Soda/Washing soda
    Natrum Carbonicum is probably the most sensitive to external impression, including noise, of any of the mineral remedies used in homeopathy or in homeopathic complexes. The animals are oversensitive to perceptual input and will know a storm is on the way when it can’t even be seen. They are particularly sensitive to any electrical changes, like thunderstorms. The Natrum Carbonicum type of animal has much in common in terms of its sensitivity to thunderstorms with the remedies Phosphorus, Rhododendron and Silica. The patient jumps or starts at the least little thing and is worse for the least little change of diet. Collies often fit this type.

  • Phosphorus 6c, 30c, 200c & 1M
    Mineral Phosphorus
    Like those needing Natrum Carbonicum, the animal types who require help from Phosphorus are super-sensitive to all external impressions, particularly thunder and lightening storms, but any sudden noise will make them jump, much as those who require Borax. The difference between those who benefit from Phosphorus during a storm, or similar fear or anxiety inducing scenario is that they are individuals who have a sparkle in their eye, like Calcarea Phosphorica they would wander off with anyone. They need company above all else and if left alone during a storm, will often become destructive. They are almost clairvoyant in their sensitivity, knowing when their family will arrive home, or run to the phone knowing it will ring, etc. They are often fine with the veterinarian until the veterinarian thinks about lifting or injecting them, at which point the Phosphorus patient will suddenly become unfriendly to say the least; something that is normally totally out of character. Phosphorus types drink lots of water and are usually hyperactive like the ginger cat, who is friendly and out-going with everyone, or the true purebred red setter who trots off after a total stranger when out for a walk. Phosphorus has a strong fear of the dark so darkening skies affect it deeply.

     
  • Silica 30c & 200c
    Silicon Dioxide = Flint, Quartz, Sand
    Silica is the most common substance on earth, giving structure to plants and many creatures, forming some of the most beautiful and delicate structures known. Those needing Silica have a want of grit and are sensitive to all external impressions. These individuals are usually very chilly. They are strongly affected by changes of weather, noise, and light, all of which are greatly magnified as storms, hurricanes, tornados, thunder, lightening, fireworks, etc.

    Staphysagria
  • Staphysagria 6c & 30c
    Delphinium Stavesacre
    Animals benefiting from this remedy tremble, but it is different from that of Gelsemium, where there is anticipatory fear. In the case of Staphysagria, the animal will be frightened of its own shadow. This fear can be instigated by factors such as surgery, and humiliations leading to trembling with indignation or fear. This is a state commonly seen in cats where they become super-sensitive to every impression, including touch and noise, and thus storms, fireworks and thunder. Often the effect is seen not only at the mental level, but also on the level of physical symptoms where there are skin eruptions that are as extremely sensitive to touch - as the patient is touchy.

     
  • Aconitum Napellus 10x, 200c, 1M
    Monkshood
    For shock, fright, fear & terror (sudden onset) , or any sudden onset of anxiety, especially remaining after a fright. Fear of being forced into a cage. Fear is worse at night.

  • Argentum Nitricum 6c, 30c, 200c
    Silver Nitrate
    This is a major remedy for all types of anticipatory anxiety, for example, fear at shows. Multiple and chronic anxieties often associated with diarrhea. For example diarrhea on the way to the veterinarian.

     
  • Arsenicum Album 6c, 30c, 200c
    White oxide of Arsenic
    This remedy is for restless anxiety with a desire for company and heat. They are fastidious individuals.

  • Avena Sativa 4x, 7x
    Oatstraw
    An anxiolytic producing a sense of calm, similar to Valeriana, Passiflora & Scutellaria.

     
  • Causticum 30c, 200c
    Potassium Hydrate
    Has a lot in common with Phosphorus, on the surface being friendly and sensitive. They have anxiety about what will happen, often ducking their head as if they expect to be hit.

  • Hyoscyamus 30c, 200c
    Henbane
    As a member of the solanaceae family, which includes Stramonium and Belladonna, it is a remedy for acute terror and hysteria, often stress licking its coat. They are often very vocal individuals.

     
  • Ignatia 6c, 30c, 200c, 1M
    St. Ignatius Bean
    Individuals benefitting from this often have a tendency to hysteria, even leading into convulsions. Symptoms to benefit can include self-mutilation coat licking. Grief affects them badly and anxiety can be associated with urinary problems.

  • Passiflora 4x, 7x
    Passion Flower
    Calming anti-convulsant. Quiets the entire nervous system. Swift acting and non-addictive.

     
  • Pulsatilla Nuttaliana 30c, 200c, 1M
    American Pasque Flower
    Clingy and constantly at the owners feet this remedy works best in individuals who are thirstless and have the peculiar characteristic of being chilly but they like fresh air leading to the cat who sits half in and half out the window.

  • Scutellaria Lateriflora 4x, 7x
    Blue skullcap
    Restlessness or unease from nervous fear or excitement.

     
  • Stramonium 200c
    Jimson Weed
    A solanaceae family remedy for acute states of fear with terror and a wide-eyed look which can be accompanied by aggression. Has a strong fear of the dark. A major remedy for behavioral problems post re-homing or abandonment.

  • Valeriana 4x, 7x
    Valerian root
    Calms Hysetria. Helps individuals where symptoms are worse for dark, for being left alone, from separation from owner or other animals, or introduction of new animals.
Dosage 
DOSING:
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 doses can be given every 15 minutes, up to 4 doses.
For cases that are not acute (chronic long term problems), one dose 3 times daily; this is often best started 5-7 days before any situation causing anxious behaviour, Once a response is seen, administration should be reduced to 2 times daily and eventually once daily. 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.

BIRDS: A caged bird can be medicated with 2 drops in the drinking water daily.

SMALL MAMMALS: 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.
Additional Information 
ADMINISTRATION:  
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.
FURTHER ADVICE:  
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 HomeoPet LLC.
DRUG INTERACTIONS: 
None known for animal use only.  Keep out of reach of children.
PHARMACEUTICAL PRECAUTIONS: 
Store at room temperature, out of direct sunlight, and away from strong odors.
USER SAFETY: 
No adverse effects have been recorded.  There have been reports to the company of beneficial rather than adverse effects.  As homeopathics are active in humans, care is advised when handling product.  Although a long history of homeopathics used in humans shows a very high safety margin.
ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT:  
To date none found
