Create a Calm Environment.

Many pet owners have found success by following a few simple strategies when it comes to creating a calm environment for their pets. You should choose a quiet and peaceful space where you can minimize distractions. This helps your pet focus and reduces anxiety. Make sure to give your pet some pawsitive reinforcement! Offering treats, praise, or a favorite toy after medication administration can help create a positive association and make future dosing easier.

Utilize Tasty Treats.

Using treats can make administering medication to your pet easier. Choose soft and tasty treats that can hide the medication. Introduce the treat beforehand to create a positive association. Place the medication inside the treat and offer it to your pet. Then you can reinforce with praise or additional treats.

Mixing with food

In many cases, granules like Allergy Itch Easeā„¢ can be mixed with your pet’s food. We suggest following the instructions regarding whether the granules should be sprinkled directly onto the food or mixed with a small amount of wet food or a treat. Ensure that your pet consumes the entire dose.

Crush Pills or Use a liquid formulation.

Crushed pills can be mixed with food or treats, making it easier for your pet to consume. You could also try liquid formulations. Liquid formulations like Scare-D-Petā„¢, offer additional benefits as they can be easily mixed into your pet’s food or water. They provide precise dosing and are often more palatable for pets with finicky appetites. Liquid medications allow for faster absorption, ensuring quicker results.

Scare-D-Petā„¢  is a safe, effective natural remedy made of 100% homeopathic ingredients. Using a unique, proprietary blend of scientifically selected natural ingredients, it helps effectively relieve symptoms such as nervousness, excitability, hyperactivity and fearfulness related to loud noises. This remedy is great with the 4th of July coming up!

Establish a Routine when Administering Medication.

This helps create a sense of predictability and familiarity, reducing stress and anxiety for both you and your pet. By following a consistent schedule, your pet becomes more accustomed to the process, making it easier to administer the medication. A routine also allows you to track the progress and effectiveness of the treatment. Sticking to a regular routine will also facilitate better communication with your veterinarian, as you can provide accurate information about your pet’s medication adherence and any observed changes. You can also look to your veterinarian for advice on administering your pet’s medication as they may have helpful tips from other pet owners like yourself.


Go Homeopathic & Herbal šŸŒæ

Homeopathic and herbal remedies offer a superior choice for pet care compared to traditional medicine. Unlike traditional medications that often come with a range of potential side effects, homeopathic and herbal remedies are made from natural ingredients, minimizing the risk of adverse reactions.

A study published in the Journal of Veterinary Pharmacology and Therapeutics found that herbal remedies exhibited significant therapeutic benefits for various conditions in animals. By harnessing the power of nature, these remedies support the body’s own healing mechanisms and promote long-term health. With their proven efficacy, minimal side effects, and natural composition, homeopathic and herbal remedies provide a holistic approach to pet wellness that is both safe and effective. You should look into homeopathy and herbalism when deciding on your pets products.
