HOW TO GIVE FLOWER REMEDIES TO DOGS
There are a few ways to administer a Bach Flower remedy to your dog. You can add two to four drops to his food or water, place two to four drops directly into his mouth, or rub some of the remedy on your hands before petting or massaging your dog. It is possible to give your dog more than one remedy at a time, but no more than seven remedies should be combined. Bach practitioners suggest that humans take a remedy for six-to-eight weeks to see results; the same applies for dogs.
