Dog separation anxiety is a condition that often affects our small dog breeds who become very dependent on their human parents. When left alone they go through terrible anxiety which is very distressful for them and us.   Many small dog breeds also suffer from extreme fear of loud noises or car travel.

For a dog in crisis such as travelling in cars or bad storms, stronger and very effective herbs that are not able to be grown at home are available from your health shop in the form of Valeriana officinalis and Passiflora incarnata.  For a tiny dog, half a tablet should be administered twice a day until the crises has passed. 

Bach Flower Remedies and Rescue Remedy solutions may be added in a single drop to milk or on top of your babies food.  Calming herbs for dogs can be a life saver for dogs who are petrified by storms or who are stressed when left alone.
