The animals in our life are our friends and companions. Providing them with care and support is how we show them our love. This month, the focus is on our furry friends. Some of the unique products we offer provide us with a way to give back and support our animal companions.

Flower essences are a type of herbal medicine consisting of diluted tinctures made from flowers.

Made from the essences of Clematis, Cherry Plum, Impatiens, Rock Rose and Star of Bethlehem, the drops can be put into a small amount of water for your pet to drink. You can also put the drops on your pet’s paws or put a few drops on your hand and stroke the remedy into their fur. This gentle approach to relaxation has been proven to help with fear and any kind of anxiety your pet may experience.
The effect of music as a stress reliever and mood enhancer is well known. If your cat or dog is anxious or nervous, the CD series Through a Dog’s Ear and Through a Cat’s Ear are beneficial for soothing your nervous or frightened pet. For dogs, the special music has been designed to provide ease by playing music that is simple and is easily assimilated. Solo piano provides rich, full spectrum frequencies that have been shown to relax dogs. The music enhances states conducive to healing and wellness by applying resonance (tone) and entrainment (rhythm) to every composition. Used in many shelters and boarding facilities, this music is renowned for creating a relaxation response in tense and anxious dogs.
In a similar fashion, the music for cats uses sound for relaxation. By removing high frequencies from the arranged piano music, frequency modulation takes place in the mid and low frequency ranges. Arousing frequencies are reduced and soothing frequencies are increased. Creating a consistent auditory environment helps cats to deal with change and disruptions in their environment.
