This is a Yay for Bach's Flower Remedy for Pets.
I was happily surprised that this worked so well for my anxious and depressive cat. This was not a cure-all, but it's broken the cycle. I can now play with her, groom her, and give her the proper attention without her whining incessantly, snapping at me, and becoming overstimulated and freaking herself out. Prior to this, it just seemed impossible to do anything at all. This was just what we needed.
It's not a tranquilizer, but somehow it's brought my cat into a new state of overall balance and well being, which I've been able to support through other commonsense techniques.
In short, this has helped one cat with the following conditions:
- separation anxiety
- incessant mewing
- over-stimulation while playing/being pet
We're both pleased to see the change.
