Animal psychology and Bach Flower remedies have an important link which is at the heart of Dr. Bach’s original message. Bach moved away from traditional medicine to explore a variety of alternative cures in nature. He proposed that when you can understand the emotional imbalance causing behavioural problems in animals, you are then able to select the right combination of remedies to help to change the behaviour.
Like us humans, our furry friends also suffer with emotional issues caused by: fears, anxieties, stress, or depression. An animal’s psychology can be affected by a variety of environmental factors. We can all experience issues adapting to changes in life. In this sense, animal and human psychology are similar. Suddenly it can seem as though an animal’s psychology has completely changed overnight. However, when you are able to look at the situation from the animal’s point of view, you can start to understand how the animal is feeling.
A typical example of when an animal’s behaviour can change dramatically is when a family gets a new pet. This change can make the long-standing pet feel disgruntled. When the new pet comes on the scene, the other pet can feel jealous or intimidated by this. Suddenly another animal seems to be getting all the attention. Before long, a negative pattern of behaviour starts to threaten the pet’s relationship with the rest of the family. In this situation the “original” pet becomes emotionally unbalanced, tormented by anger, jealousy, and envy. Bach Flower remedies can help to rebalance an animal’s emotions, returning the animal’s psychology to normal again.
There are 38 Bach Flower remedies which can be combined to target clusters of emotional problems in animals. Alternative therapist vets use Bach flowers to help animals regain emotional and psychological balance. Some key areas of animal psychology Bach Flowers can help with are in situations where animals: have been abused, are find training difficult, have suffered from neglect, or are suffering from stress.
When animal psychology has not been altered by a physical complaint, a Bach Flower therapist will aim to find out the emotional origin for your pet’s behaviour. It’s important to visit your vet to rule out any physical issues which could be causing your pet’s behaviour beforehand. Once any physical problems have been cleared up, or ruled out, you can start using the remedies to treat your pet.
Some typical animal behavioural problems are triggered by animal psychology such as: possessiveness, over protectiveness, a lack of confidence, and difficulty focusing attention on learning new tasks. Whatever your pet’s emotional issue, a Bach expert can blend essences to treat the imbalance. Once the emotional problems are resolved, behaviour can return to normal. We recommend that you give Bach Flower remedies to your pet by diluting the drops in the animal’s drinking water. Gradually, and gently, the emotional imbalance causing the problem behaviour will resolve.
