Win Flower Essences to Help Your Dog During Fireworks! CLOSED

**This giveaway is closed. With 38 entries, the winner is #8, Katie M!**

You think you’re one of a special breed
You think that you’re his pet Pekingese
I’ll be your savior, steadfast and true
I’ll come to your emotional rescue…
~ Mick Jagger & Keith Richards

Mick Jagger is probably not the first person to come to mind when talking dog ownership.  But the rock and roll legend (and British knight) has been known to keep a menagerie of pets. What rock stars and all dog lovers share is a desire to keep their pets happy.

Flower essences can offer the emotional rescue, not only for pet Pekingese, but for all dogs. The liquid plant preparations are made by infusing fresh flower blossoms under very specific conditions. Such infusions have historically been used to balance and harmonize emotional, psychological, and spiritual states.

Botanical Animal’s Mellow Out Blend® helps to calm the nervous or jittery animals during thunderstorms or firework displays. It also provides emotional support to dogs that may be moody, irritable or on edge all the time and for overly anxious and anticipatory animals who tend to lose control easily. Botanical Animal’s essences are easy to administer. They may be given orally, in drinking water, sprayed as a light mist on paws, nose, or mouth, or while feeding a hard treat.

Arenus, a pet supplement company, offers 14 different, issue-specific blends of Botanical Animal essences, each specifically formulated to address different emotional situations many pets encounter. These include trauma, stress, abandonment, loss of a loved one, aggression, and insecurity.

    Mellow Out Blend — My dog suffers through every thunderstorm and during fireworks. This sounds like it would help calm her fear and anxiety.

  • Lori Miller

    Mellow Out Blend – My Jack Russell struggles with Thunderstorms, Fireworks, Gun Fire, almost any loud noise that it similar to that. It would be nice to be able to try something like this for him. Thanks!

  • jacquie

    my super anxiety ridden Shih Tzu would be helped A LOT by Angel of Mercy or Mellow Out Blend – he is easily troubled by noises and has terrible seperation anxiety.
    THANK YOU!

  • Tesser

    Mellow Out Blend – my poor 80 lb lab hates thunder, rain, & lightning – he almost wants to crawl under the bed. He gets very afraid! We reassure him & give him treats to try to help him but it’s sad to see him suffer so.

    Mellow Out Blend!

    SO hard to choose. It was between http://shop.arenus.com/p-71-mellow-out-blend.aspx mellow out, and Obsess Less… But I think Mellow Out sounds like it’ll calm him down in general, and perhaps ease that interest in playing toss with his favorite toy NONSTOP 🙂 I’d like to try them all for my and my friends’ dogs.

    Oh my gosh could we ever use this! Orchards close to our house have started to use HAIL CANNONS which cause exteme anxiety for my sweet Pepper who already has thunderstorm anxiety. Now it’s like living in the middle of a civil war battle!

    We’d love the Mellow Out Blend.

    I would like “Safe Journey” for my little rescue dog. He was rescued from the south and transported up north and so he has a fear of riding in cars. He gets very nervous, shakes, and whines. I have tried Rescue Remedy on him for this but it hasn’t seemed to help, so maybe this one would!

  • I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to try the “In Training Essence”! I am a professional certified dog trainer, and am always looking to for natural or holistic ways of enhancing the training process. All of the essences sound marvelous, and may be a huge asset in any number of situations. Having had experience with the Bach formulas, I am always excited to explore new options.
