A special tip from Carole

Holistic Dog Care

Take loving care of your dog with natural holistic pet care products.

Use Pet Essences Emergency after an accident, for stressful situations, trauma. Helps prevent shock and is calming. Can be put on skin if animal is unconscious. Give every few seconds then minutes until crisis is past. Caretaker can also take.

About Flower Essences

Pets are very responsive to the energetic healing of Flower Essences. The energetic bouquets from Pet Essences are both dynamic and gentle in their transformational abilities. By using the appropriate Flower Essences to balance the emotional attitudes of your dog (or cat), subtle changes occur that bring renewed energy forward and short circuit the path to illness. Appropriate times to use Flower Essences include:

  • Visits to the vet
  • Fear of loud noises (fireworks, thunderstorms etc.)
  • Excessive barking or hissing
  • Shock, trauma or mistreatment
  • Adapting to loss of companion
  • Separation anxiety
  • Adapting to new surroundings (home, kennel, stable etc.)
  • Obsessive cleanliness
  • Constant licking or nibbling of self

Don't worry about choosing an inappropriate essence: they will not harm animals, or people, as they are self-correcting - meaning that there are no unwanted side effects. Products available to purchase include:

Pets have emotions, attitudes and personalities just like humans. To care for an animal, it is helpful to observe the animal and learn how to distinguish between normal regular behaviour and behaviour that is unusual and out of balance.

Pets often reflect the emotions of the people close to them and the environment in which they live. Emotions such as fear or anxiety or worry or depression can lead to disease because they deplete the physical body of its natural vitality, thereby compromising the immune system's ability to function properly.


The American Kennel Club's list of dog breeds for people with allergies

plus 23 other breeds as well

Fortunately for all those dog-loving but allergic people out there, there are quite a few breeds that don't shed a lot and consequently spread less dander. Although the American Kennel Club (AKC) does not endorse or recommend any particular breed as being hypoallergenic, they have published a list of dog breeds that are commonly known for not shedding a lot.

If you are allergic to dogs and you'd like to give adoption a go, please peruse the AKC list and the 23 other hypoallergenic breeds listed separately below.
