ADDITIONAL INFO. (MSDS)
INDICATIONS: A natural homeopathic remedy that promotes temporary relief from fear of fireworks, gunshots and loud noises normally associated with signs such as hiding, barking, attention seeking, pacing and panting, drooling, trembling, trying to escape to safety.
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 closing windows and curtains, putting on some background music, or similar cover noise, to further muffle the trigger noise, having company with the pet where someone will sit and calmly talk to the pet and stroke, it if this is apprpriate 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 alonside this medicine, but will not in all cases enhance the effect. The patient should be treataed both with and without the diffuser. Chemical sedation can also be used alonside 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. Contact your veterinarian if problems persist.
