These are the Bach Flower remedies I used for Maggie and Tara and am now using for Tara. In no way am I saying that this is what you should use or the only or best route to go for you or for your animal companion. I’m only providing you a history of our journey and what we did in the hope that it may help you on your journey of researching your path.
The information I’m providing pertains strictly to Maggie Soo, Tara, and I. Please do not construe it to be, or have it replace, medical/veterinarian advice or as a substitute for any professional services. It is not, in any way, meant to represent treatment, cure or mitigation of disease or illness. My intent is only to share our experiences which may hopefully make your journey easier. I cannot stress enough the importance of having a professional team, including medical, veterinarian, nutritionists, and therapists, to help you as you progress along your own journey. My gratitude for my team — of professionals, friends and family — is never ending.
Star of Bethlehem (Ornithogalum unbellatum) — gave this to Tara the day Maggie was away for her operation (September 3rd). Also gave it to both Maggie and Tara, by putting a couple of drops in their water dish, for the next four days (September 4, 5, 6, and 7). I had also used it for the week after my Dad died because both Maggie and Tara were grieving him.
It is the remedy for shock, such as unexpected bad news or an unexpected and unwelcome event. Dr. Bach’s Description: For those in great distress under conditions which for a time produce great unhappiness. The shock of serious news, the loss of some one dear, the fright following an accident, and such like.
Red Chestnut (aesculus carnea) — added this to Maggie and Tara’s water dish for the first four days after Maggie’s byopsy (September 4, 5, 6, 7), along with the Star of Bethlehem. It is the Bach Flower Remedy for people who feel fear for the well-being of others. Dr. Bach’s Description: For those who find it difficult not to be anxious for other people.
