Using On Cats & Dogs

How to pick and use a BACH® remedy on cats and dogs


BACH® Remedies for Dogs & Cats Using Bach® Original Flower Remedies and RESCUE REMEDY® Pet products on your cat or dog*

Before selecting remedies for your pet, consider underlying behavior

Bach® Original Flower Remedies products help bring cats and dogs back into a state of balance, not change the inherent temperament in a particular breed or animal. Understanding the meaning behind pet behavior will help you select the appropriate remedy. Consider:

  1. Some behaviors originate from an underlying physical condition. For instance, if you are seeking a cat sedative to help calm an animal, have you consulted with your veterinarian to rule out a physical cause?

  2. Lack of socialization can bring on fearful behavior. Does your animal socialize with its own species?

  3. Understanding your pet’s “normal” behavior will help you determine if behavior is normal or abnormal. Examples of normal behavior include vocalizing, climbing, sniffing, and rubbing; while eating non-food items, non-stop licking, and unprovoked lashing out are not. Is the pet allowed to act out their normal behavior? Also, some behavior is innate to the species. Some cats and dogs are instinctive predators or territorial by nature.


Step 1: Pinpoint the Issue

Our Bach® Original Flower Remedies Remedy Chooser brochure is made especially for cats and dogs issues to help you identify what's going on with your four-legged family member. Download the Remedy Chooser for Cats & Dogs brochure (file type: PDF | size: 670 KB) here. If you have difficulty pinpointing the animal's issue, consider making an appointment with an Bach Flower Registered Animal Practitioner (BFRAP). Find a BFRAP from our Find a Practitioner page.


Step 2: Find the BACH® Remedy

Match the pet's issue to the remedy found in the brochure downloaded from above. Be certain to select Bach® remedies by issue, not desired outcome.


Step 3: Give the Remedy

  • DOSAGE: Give 2 drops of each remedy from the Bach® Original Flower Remedies (or 4 drops of RESCUE REMEDY® Pet) orally as often as needed. You may blend up to 7 remedies.

  • HOW TO MAKE A BLEND: Fill one clean 30 mL eye dropper bottle three-quarters full of spring water. Add 2 drops of each Bach® Original Flower Remedies (or 4 drops of RESCUE REMEDY® Pet) to the water. You may blend up to 7 remedies. Follow dosage instructions above.

  • IF THE ISSUE CONTINUES consult a Bach Foundation Registered Animal Practitioner (BFRAP), Bach Foundation Registered Practitioner (BFRP) or an animal behaviorist. BFRAP & BFRP listings are available at BachRemedies.com on our Find a Practitioner page.
