Flower essences, although not exactly the same as homeopathy, use energy as a way to treat different problems, both in people and animals, including man's best friends.
Flower essences work very well on dogs, especially those with emotional or behavioral problems, although there are also some essences that can help treat certain physical problems such as arthritis, and skin problems. Some people may dismiss flower essences (and homeopathy for that matter) as "quacky" and non-scientific. However, if you look at the host of anecdotal reports by pet parents on the positive effects of flower essences on their pets, it is undeniable that these remedies work. Since flower essences do not cause any adverse side-effects (the worst that can happen is that they have no effects on the pet), it doesn't hurt to try them out on your pets if needed.
