Our pet’s behaviour is the best indicator that they are suffering from anxiety or stress. They tell us a lot by their actions, their physiological responses, and sometimes by the “evidence” they’ve left while you’ve been at work.
One of my current dogs, a rescue, shows aggressive behaviour towards the other dogs in our home, because she feels threatened and uncertain of her own safety. She also gets car sick and vomits all over the back seat on any journey longer than 30 minutes.
A friend’s cat starts bouncing off the walls when he’s frightened by loud noises, like fireworks or thunder.
Some pets can wreck furniture, scratch up the place or relieve themselves when experiencing extreme anxiety. Panting, shaking, drooling, whining and fretting are all indicators.
HomeoPet has a range of formulas to help combat anxiety in specific stressful situations, and for general anxiety based conditions. Designed by Vets, each product has a broad-spectrum formula that alleviates the many underlying contributors.
STORM STRESS is the HomeoPet product designed specifically for loud noises, changes in barometric pressure, and the wild lightning, thunder, wind and rain of storms. This formula helps promote a sense of calm quickly and effectively, when given four times an hour until the pet’s behaviour changes.
TRAVEL ANXIETY is the HomeoPet answer to motion sickness, drooling, vomiting, panting, restlessness and other unwanted behaviour during any sort of travel, including car trips and at holiday time. Fast-acting and effective, its’ best to start dosing your pet an hour before the trip.
ANXIETY is for general anxious conditions. This formulation is designed to help with separation anxiety, fear of vet visits or groomer, introduction of new pets or people, and to help rescued or rehomed pets, and other broad based symptoms of anxiety.
HomeoPet founder and Vet Dr Tom Farrington MVB MRCVS VetMFHom designed each product to be chosen simply and quickly by customers to match the name to the conditions shown by your pet. All HomeoPet products are non-sedating and non-habit forming. There are no side effects and can be used in combination with each other, or any pharmaceutical or natural supplement with safety. HomeoPet’s behavioural range has been clinically trialed worldwide and in Australia by leading Behaviorists, Vets and Universities with a 78% efficacy rating which is extremely high.
