Visiting the Groomer With Your Pet Posted on 29 Jun 10:58

Animals who are trained to attend and preform in Competitive Shows need to arrive looking their best. So in addition to months and years of training for the activities required to preform in the Shows, they are used to visiting a groomer.

These animals are comfortable with the routines and tools used in the grooming process.  But animals who are well loved but treated like pets are not always as well trained.  Going to a groomer can be a bit unnerving for both the animal and the owner. All animals like to be appreciated for looking their best. After a successful appointment, they often strut around acting pleased and proud.

Now in the heat of summer, most pets can do with a bit of hair trimming just to stay cooler. An owner can easily give the family dog a bath at home or at the local pet shop that has a do it your self doggie wash. But the hair and nail trimming and ear cleaning is best left to an expert.

After selecting the Groomer who will take care of your dogs and cats, the next trick is to make the animals comfortable when experiencing the new adventure. Our GROOMING formula can be a big help.

Over the years we have received many success stories and testimonials from people who have used our flower essences to TRAVEL to the location as well as the GROOMING formula while at the facility. Additionally, ANXIETY/FEAR and EMOTIONAL STABILITY can be used for several days ahead of the appointment to bolster confidence and courage.

Dogs seem to take to the grooming experience more easily than cats. So we think the following testimonial from Adrienne Kawamura, Owner of City Kitty, is especially useful to read.

“I have been using Energetic Essences in my cat grooming salon for years with great success. We use them for cats that are scared, upset or lack confidence to endure the process. We also carry them in the salon for retail sale and have so many clients finding great success with them. They are wonderful to restore physical as well as emotional imbalances in the body. Our salon follows the principles of holistic care, so this fits our business model well.  I can’t imagine my business without using this wonderful product. It makes my life and every cat I groom so much easier.”

Traveling With Your Pet Posted on 17 May 08:14

Airplanes, cars, trailers, trains, buses and bikes all carry our pets near and far.

Years ago we had a Border Collie who loved to take trips riding on the gas tank of our BMW Motorcycle.  Duende was fortunate in that he did not exhibit any of the common difficulties that so many animal travelers suffer.  He would just lower his head behind the fairing and happily lean into the curves!

One of the most common problems animal travelers encounter is motion sickness. Drooling, vomiting, peeing and whimpering are all possible signs of motion sickness.

We suggest giving a Dose of our TRAVEL formula several minutes before leaving home and then another upon getting settled in the vehicle. This is good for a trip around the block or one to the Veterinarian’s office.  If the trip is a long one, more doses will be helpful.

TRAVEL seems to make the passing of time easier for the pets. They become more inclined to just settle in for the trip.

People have used TRAVEL with success when flying with or without the animal.

Cat owners have called us to report that for the first time ever the kitties were calm and even curled up and went to sleep on long trips.

If the pet is generally concerned about strangers, loud noises and other surprises, you can begin using our ANXIETY/FEAR formula combined with EMOTIONAL STABILITY days or weeks before traveling and that will help reduce their concerns while on the adventure.

Most animals like to get out and about so TRAVEL can make the experiences more enjoyable for both the animals and their people.

Introducing a Pet to a New Home and Traveling Posted on 12 May 10:58

Welcoming an animal into their new home is an exciting time for the whole family, people and pets alike.

Weather you have rescued an animal from a local shelter or a future show dog from the breeder, the new animal can get emotional support and calming comfort from some of our flower essences.

Getting the animal home is the first step.

It matters not if you are flying or driving, the TRAVEL formula will help prevent motion sickness. It also has flowers to ease fears that may be an emotional expression due to the new experience.

Young animals like puppies, kittens and frisky colts often have more energy than the new caretaker knows what to do with!

Our CALMING SOLUTION is wonderful for taking a bit of wind out of their sails without diminishing their joy of being in a loving household.

It is also useful for demanding attitudes like, pet me more, take me for another walk, throw the Frisbee again!

NEW HOME/GROUP LIVING not only helps the animal who has arrived at their new home but if also given to the animals in residence, it will shorten the time needed for the entire group to adjust. Often bringing a baby home for the first time can disturb the pets so that is another time to use NEW HOME/GROUP LIVING because the group dynamics are shifting.

Some folks use NEW HOME/GROUP LIVING when adding new fish into a tank or another animal into the herd.

When a family moves to a new location, everyone experiences changes. A perfect time to use TRAVEL and CALMING SOLUTION for the trip and NEW HOME/GROUP LIVING upon arrival.
