Do you have an aggressive cat? Bach flowers can help!

Aggression in cats

Aggression in cats is one of the most frequent problems next to lack of cleanliness. *

Aggression however, is very often wrongly interpreted. Many people think that an aggressive cat shows this behaviour out of anger or dominance. In many cases, this isn’t exactly right, there are plenty of reasons as to why a cat can express aggressive feelings. The most frequent forms of aggression are born out of anxiety or frustration.
*

Petting and biting syndrome

The petting and biting syndrome, also known as petting intolerance occurs frequently in cats. If you are a cat owner, then you certainly know about this problem. Your cat is sleeping quietly and enjoying your petting. But suddenly this moment of relaxation turns into aggression and your cat bites when petted. Anxiety and uncertaintyplay the biggest part in this. Bach flowers mix 110 helps to deal with these issues. *

Aggressive cat due to anxiety

Kittens that are not well socialised from a young age will have trouble dealing with people. They are afraid of people and will therefore hiss or claw. If, as an owner, you react with anxiety, your cat will feel cornered. Bach flowers can help your cat to eliminate its fear of people. *

Aggression between cats in the same household

Cats are very territorial. When there is suddenly another cat in the environment this can cause tension. For both cats, this can be a stressful situation. Tension and stress are built up and this can lead to aggression. Do you have a new cat in the house and does your cat show aggressive behaviour? Bach flowers mix 110 can help. *

Aggression out of frustration

Aggression coming out of frustration occurs frequently in kittens who are bottle-fed. If kittens are educated by the mother cat, they receive important lessons from nature. They have to be patient when waiting for a drink if the mother cat decides to impose this.
When your cat is raised by hand, then it doesn’t get this important life lesson.
Frustration can occur in certain situations meaning you have to live with an aggressive cat. *

Aggression out of pain

Aggression can also be caused by pain. If you have an aggressive cat, don’t forget to consult your vet to exclude the possibility of a physical cause. *

Bach flowers mix 57: First aid remedy for cats

This first aid remedy for cats helps them:

  • With intense panic *
  • Sudden anxiety *
  • Sudden stress *
  • After a traumatic experience *
  • When suffering from a sudden illness *
  • After a major event *

Rescue remedy or First aid remedy for cats

This composition is, just like with the equivalent First Aid remedy for people, based on the original Bach Rescue remedy, but adding White Chestnut and Larch. The First Aid remedy for cats also consists of much less alcohol, rendering it harmless when administered to cats and kittens.*

When should the First Aid remedy for cats be used?

The Bach First Aid remedy for cats should be used in moments when, for example, heavy stress or anxiety take the upper hand. In these situations, the Bach First Aid remedy is most efficient. *

The Rescue remedy for cats or First Aid remedy for cats can be used in the following situations: *

  • Your cat is panicked by a sudden noise (the noise of a doorbell …)
  • Your cat is anxious because someone is visiting, or there are people around it doesn’t know
  • Your cat is stressed because suddenly there’s a new cat in the neighbourhood
  • Your cat recently suffered a trauma:
    • Your cat was hit by a car
    • Your cat became lost
    • Your cat was abandoned
    • Your cat stayed in a shelter
    • A befriended cat has died
    • Your cat fought with another cat
  • Your cat suddenly fell ill; she doesn’t eat anymore, her behaviour changes …
  • Your cat experienced major events such as moving, change of decoration, new furniture, new housemate …

How to use the First aid remedy for cats?

As mentioned above, the First Aid remedy for cats should be used in situations where stress or anxiety take the upper hand. When this is the case, you should give them 4 drops directly on the tongue, or on a treat, or rub it directly on the nose. You repeat this, every 5 to 10 minutes until all signs of anxiety or stress have gone. There is no hazard of overdosing.
If you notice your cat is becoming ill, then you can give it 6 x 4 drops a day until the animal is completely cured. This helps you cure your kitty faster. *

How long do you have to administer the First Aid remedy for cats?

After intense events that cause stress or anxiety, or with illness, the First Aid remedy should be administered. If you’re able to know when these events take place (for example, you know someone will visit), then you can give the First Aid remedy to your cat just before the visit. If you don’t expect a visit, then it is recommended you give the drops directly afterwards. Do this for a couple of days. *

If your cat is suffering from stress or anxiety for longer than a week, or your cat remains ill even after a week has passed, then the problem is more deeply rooted. Here, a personal Bach flowers mix could help. This mix answers to the specific needs of your cat as an individual and treats the deeper cause of the anxiety or illness so your cat feels better again.  *

What is the difference between the First Aid remedy for cats and the Bach Rescue remedy for cats from the shop?

  • The Bach First Aid remedy that you can find here, has 2 extra Bach flowers, White Chestnut to protect against being unsettled, and Larch for greater confidence.
  • In the First Aid remedy for cats there is much less alcohol than the Bach Rescue remedy for cats from the shop, so you can administer it without any dangers.
  • The content is 50ml instead of 20 ml.

Personalised Bach flowers for your cat

cats

Bach flowers can be used to treat behaviour problems in catsperfectly. This is because a lot of behaviour problems have an emotional cause such as stress, anxiety, insecurity, etc. *

However, every cat has a different character which results in a different type of behaviour problems. Because of this I always work with a personalised Bach flowers mix. If you have problems with your cat, contact me for free advice. Mail today to tom@bachfloweradvice.co.ukand you will receive an answer within 24 hours. *

Which behaviour problems can be treated with Bach Flowers?

Spraying

When a cat randomly starts spraying in the house you get an annoying smell and sometimes even material damage. Bach flowers can help to reduce this territorial behaviour in the house. *

Scratching furniture, doors, curtains…

A cat loves to scratch, and as long as she does this on the scratching post there isn’t any problem. But soon as the cat starts scratching furniture, doors or curtains this can be very annoying. A personalised Bach flowers mix can cure this unwanted behaviour and make sure your house will have no more damage. *

Adjusting to new situations

A cat is an animal that has a lot of problems adjusting to a new situation. When you have a new addition to the family, or furniture has moved, the cat will seem out of its normal behaviour. Bach Flowers will help her to give it all a place, which results in less unwanted behaviour. *

Aggressive behaviour, the pet and bite syndrome

The pet and bite syndrome is the most common aggressive behaviour with cats. When you pet a cat she will suddenly turn around and bite your hand. Sometimes she will even grab your hand with her front paws and try to kick you. A personalised Bach flower mix can deal with this behaviour, because the cause lies with fear and a lack of trust. *

Not housetrained

Besides spraying, a cat can also pee in the house. This is also caused by emotions such as anger, dominance,and aggression… Bach flowers can correct these emotions and makes sure your cat is housetrained in no time. *

Fear

Some cats are really anxious. This happens in certain circumstances, such as a visitor or a minor sound. This causes your cat to flee, or causes your cat to react aggressively. A personalised Bach flowers mix can make sure your cat conquers these fears and doesn’t react so out of control anymore. *

Intolerance

Cats like to be on their own, and when a new animal comes into the house this can definitely cause some problems. The cat will not tolerate another cat in her territory. This intolerance also causes aggressive behaviour. Bach flowers help to give your cat get more tolerance and be more accepting to the newcomer.  *

Scared dog? Bach flowers comfort your dog!

Dog anxietyThere are many different reasons for a dog to be scared. Think about a fear of fireworks or separation anxiety. However, dogs can be anxious for more general reasons too. *

Negative experiences

Perhaps your dog once had a fight with another dog, or your dog had an owner who mistreated him? If this is the case, then your dog can have anxious feelings continuing after this negative experience. Bach flower mix 107 helps your dog put this negative experience behind him. *

Disappointment

Some dogs are very loyal to their owner. They are afraid to disappoint them. Maybe you have punished your dog once for something he has done wrong when you were not at home, and your dog has failed to understood why. Or maybe your dog has experienced punishment with a previous owner? Your dog may think you will get angry again without understanding why. Your dog is afraid of your reaction. Bach flower mix 107 helps your dog not to be afraid without any reason. *

Not enough socialisation

When he was younger, perhaps your dog did not spend much time around other dogs, animals or people? If so, he might be afraid because your dog doesn’t trust other dogs, animals or people. Bach flower mix 107 ensures your dog feels comfortable, even when unknown animals or people are around. *

Afraid of objects

Some dogs are afraid of objects without any apparent reason. Sometimes your dog will experience anxiety just because. The noise of a vacuum cleaner, might make him afraid of it for example. Maybe your dog refuses to walk past a certain spot, because it is afraid of the statue or something else that’s on that spot. Bach flower mix 107 helps your dog move past any irrational anxiety and helps your dog learn to deal with it. *

Stress in dogs? Bach flowers help your dog to calm down!

Stress in dogs

Just like people, dogs can become stressed. You’d think that the causes of this stress would be different, but actually, dogs get nervous in similar situations to us humans. Think about situations where you are under pressure to perform, or there are sudden changes or you clash with others. These are all situations that can cause stress in dogs. *

Pressure to perform

Dogs that go to dog training classes, as well as other dogs who have to meet expectations of some kind, can be under pressure to perform and suffer performance anxiety. Your dog realizes that something is expected of him and that can make your dog stressed. Bach flower mix 106 helps your dog deal with this pressure and therefore he is able to perform better. *

Sudden changes

Some dog breeds are creatures of habit. They become attached to their routine and can’t bear to be without their owner. If they get to see the owner less than they are used to, or something changes in their daily routine, they can become very nervous. Bach flower mix 106 helps your dog to deal with these changes so he can move past them.   *

Clashes with others

Do you and your dog have the same walking tour where you meet other animals. Or has your dog had a clash with another animal or person during a certain activity or visit? If so, your dog may become stressed when you take that walk, have visitors over, or you do the same activity that caused him upset previously. This is because your dog is thinking about the last unpleasant experience he had. Bach flower mix 106 helps your dog to have more confidence when he comes into contact with other animals or people again. *

Not enough excitement

Some dog breeds have a need for exercise or activities. While you’re busy at work or with something else, your dog is getting bored at home. If you didn’t have the time to do something you usually do with your dog, he may become nervous or anxious because of that. The nerves or anxiety will lead to negative behaviour: your dog may ned up destroying things or peeing in the house. This is all due to stress. Bach flower mix 106 helps your dog to remain calm, even if it’s sometimes not possible to go out for a walk. *

Your dog is carsick? Bach flowers help dogs with travel sickness

Carsick dog

Dog travel sickness appears quite frequently. Most of the time, it originates at a young age because the dog’s ears aren’t fully developed until they’re a little older.
This causes the vestibular system to become ‘out of balance’. The dog feels unbalanced during the car ride and then becomes concerned when he can’t handle the situation well. The dog gets carsick or panics. *

A disturbance of the vestibular system is more of a physical problem. However, Bach flowers helps with carsickness in dogs because the dog’s emotions will determine how the dog deals with this crisis. *

Panic in the car

If your dog has never been in a car before, then he will get startled when he becomes unbalanced. Because your dog is out of balance, he can become nauseous or panic. Bach flowers mix 105 will help your dog to remain calmand not to panic. *

Fear of the unknown

If you rarely transport your dog in the car, then your dog won’t be used to it. Such an event can be terrifying for your dog, because he doesn’t know the situation. There can also be a lot of noise whilst on the road, which is hard to stand for your dog. Bach flowers mix 105 helps your dog beat the fear of the unknown and feel at ease. *

Conquer trauma

If your dog’s been carsick during previous car rides, then he/she will equate car rides with being sick. Also, if your dog was in an accident before, this can influence his travel sickness. Bach flowers mix 105 helps your dog to conquer the trauma. *

Stress and car sickness

A dog in the car can become disorientated because of the influence on its vestibular system. He/she gets confused, tense and stressed out. Bach flowers mix 105 helps your dog deal with the situation better, so he/she doesn’t get stressed. *

How can Bach flowers help with epilepsy in dogs?

Epilepsy in dogs

Epilepsy in dogs can have a physical as well as a psychosomatic cause. In either case, it’s important to treat the negative emotions causing or emanating from the epilepsy. I have successfully treated a great number of dogs myself with Bach flowers. *

Too much energy

One of the common behaviours of dogs with epilepsy is hyperactivity. I witnessed this in my experience when treating epilepsy in dogs.
*

These dogs can be very quiet one moment, but are unable to help themselves the next. When this energy becomes too much for them, it may be a trigger for an epileptic seizure. Bach flowers mix 104 can help your dog to be calmer. *

Stress

Stress is never good. It has harmful consequences for humans as well as dogs. Stress is more than often a factor that triggers an epileptic seizure. Stress can be treated very well with Bach flowers mix 104. *

Fear

Some dogs have epileptic seizures more frequently in certain situations, for example when there are fireworksor when someone unknown is visiting. This suggests that fear plays a major role in causing epileptic seizures. Bach flowers mix 104 can help your dog to get over these fears. *

Trauma

Witnessing an epileptic seizure from your dog may scare you as an owner and in some cases, this can cause further trauma for your dog. Bach flowers mix 104 can help your dog process these traumatic experiences. *

Treat dog separation anxiety symptoms with Bach flowers

Separation anxiety in dogs

In general, dogs have difficulty being alone, and separation anxiety in dogs is therefore a frequent problem. This can be due to a bad experience – perhaps the dog was removed from its mother too early or it has had a traumatic experience. *

Separation anxiety can manifest itself through a lack of cleanliness, dejected feelings, howling, or excessive barking… *

Will your dog bark or howl for hours? This is not a pleasant experience for your dog, and it is a complete nuisance for the neighbours. Bach flowers mix 103 can help your dog conquer its separation anxiety. *

Traumatic experience

Maybe in the past something scary has happened causing your dog to develop an anxiety when staying home alone.
Just think about storms, fireworks, break-ins, noise from the neighbours … all of these can be traumatic for your dog. Your dog can link these things that stress him out or traumatise him to the fact that you as owner leave the house.
Bach flowers can help him deal with these traumatic experiences. *

Having to stay home alone

Dogs are originally pack animals. From birth, they are used to being together with other dogs. If your dog suddenly has to stay home alone, then this is something completely new for your dog. It’s not in his nature, and often he will not have learned to be alone, because this stage in his education has been skipped. Bach flowers can help your dog deal with this sudden change and help him fight the fear of being home alone. *

Separation anxiety in shelter animals

If you adopted a dog from the shelter, then there’s a possibility that your dog has separation anxiety. This fear of abandonment has developed because your dog is afraid that you will leave him again and he believes he will have to go back to the shelter. *

Also, your dog has to get adjusted to a new situation. A new home and new people can bring anxiety and stress to your dog. Bach flowers mix 103 will take away the anxiety of your dog allowing him to have more confidence in this new situation. *

How to stop the dog from peeing in the house? The solution; Bach flowers mix 102!

dog peeing in the house

An unclean dog can be a problem. But it isn’t only puppies who suffer this way. When an adult dog suddenly starts peeing in the housethis can be a big problem, especially when you know that you have educated your dog to be clean. The problem occurs all of a sudden and can have a number of causes. Mostly they are related to the emotionsof your dog. *

Anxiety & stress from staying alone at home

One of the most frequent problems and related causes of a dog peeing in the house is separation anxiety. Dogs that can’t be alone, can suffer from anxiety and stress. Your dog pees in the house in your absence. Your dog is suffering from tension causing him to have to pee faster. Bach flowers can help your dog to be calmer and deal better with stress. *

Lack of confidence

Uncleanliness can also occur with submissive dogs. Maybe you are too dominant for your dog, this will make your dog develop a lack of confidence. Bach flowers can boost your dog’s confidence again. *

Need for attention

When your dog is feeling that he’s not getting enough attention from you, he can start to pee in the house to get your attention. If this works, your dog will keep doing it. Bach flowers can help your dog so that he doesn’t demand all your attention and he will be inclined to be more independent. *

Physical cause

Has your dog started peeing in the house? Remember, there can also be a medical reason. Be sure to visit the vet to rule out a medical problem.  *

* Disclaimer: results may vary from animal to animal and are not based on scientific results.

Stop your dog from barking? Bach flowers help!

Excessively barking dogs

All dogs bark. It’s natural. Yet some dogs can’t seem to stop. Some events seem to provoke excessive barking. Think of fireworks, or people passing by your house. Excessive barking may become truly irritating, not only for you but also for your guests or neighbours. It isn’t pleasant for the dog either, because he has to deal with a number of emotions.
Excessive barking may have different reasons. So how to stop your dog from barking? Thanks to Bach flowers mix 101, you can bring an end to this annoying habit. *

Fear

Some dogs are very easily startled or afraid. As a reaction they start barking because they are panicking. *

Bach flowers mix 101 helps your dog to be less anxious or skittish, so that he or she doesn’t panic so quickly. *

Boredom or loneliness

Dogs are originally pack animals, so when they are alone for a long period of time they can get bored or lonely. This causes them to feel dejected or stressed. To express their feelings, they may bark excessively.
Bach flowers mix 101 makes your dog feel more comfortable being alone. When he feels less dejected or stressed he will have no reason to bark. *

Overprotective behaviour

Territorial behaviour is normal for dogs. They will want to protect their owner and others from trespassers or other dogs. Barking then is a means of warning. This protective behaviour can become habitual, causing your dog to start barking excessively.
Bach flowers ease your dog’s overprotective instinct and give him faith that he can handle harmless situations. *

Seeking attention

Dogs are animals that need a lot of attention. But sometimes dogs may tend to overdo it. They demand your attention by barking if you leave them alone for just a moment.
If you get angry, your dog gets the attention he or she was seeking, or you give him or her attention to stop the barking. This creates a vicious circle.
Bach flowers take care of your dog’s possessive behaviour. *
