A Happy Pet for the Holidays: Natural Remedies to Treat Animals' Complex Emotions
Date:11/20/2008

NORTH ANDOVER, Mass., Nov. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Does your pet misbehave when you leave the house? Whether you're entertaining or traveling for the holidays, the change in schedule can negatively affect your pet's behavior. Recent research shows that upwards of 10.7 million pets in the United States suffer from separation anxiety, resulting in inappropriate, unwanted behaviors.

While the trend toward the use of pharmaceutical drugs to deal with animals' separation anxiety and other complex stress-related emotions is on the rise, many pet owners are turning to all-natural alternative solutions, including Nelsons' RESCUE Remedy(R) Pet. This new variation of the original stress relieving remedy available for more than 70 years contains a blend of the same five flower remedies found in RESCUE Remedy in an alcohol free formula, ideal for sensitive pets.

According to Margo Roman, DVM, "Animals have complex feelings. Pets can experience separation anxiety, anger, fear, boredom, loneliness, jealousy and other sophisticated emotions." Dr. Roman, a board member of the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association, explains, "If left untreated, these intense feelings can lead to negative, unwanted behaviors -- a dog with a propensity to bite, a cat who continually urinates on the carpet, a bird who pulls out his feathers each time his owner leaves the house."

With the holidays around the corner, many pets will have to deal with being left behind, different types of people in the house and maybe even a new environment. Dr. Roman recommends pet owners consider flower remedy therapy should their pets experience any of the following:

    -- Excessive barking or hissing
    -- Travel
    -- Separation anxiety
    -- Adapting to new surroundings
    -- Constant licking or nibbling of self
    -- Fear of loud noises including thunderstorms

RESCUE Remedy Pet is available in dropper format, allowing pet owners to easily administer it to their pets. Alcohol-free, it is suitable for use on pets of all shapes and sizes, including reptiles, fish (add to water), birds, cats, dogs, horses and rabbits. Dosage is 4 drops, given several times a day (10 ml drops -- $12.95 MSRP).

RESCUE Remedy Pet, manufactured by Nelsons, a leader in natural medicine, is available nationally in Whole Foods and anywhere natural products are sold. It can also be purchased online at http://www.rescueremedy.com/pets.
