Fireworks is a Homeopathic remedy that provides relief from fear of fireworks, wind, loud noises, gunshots. It can help with restless, anxious and unwanted behaviour can be helped with this fast-acting, non-sedating liquid.
Optimally, the liquid preparation should be dropped directly into the mucous membrane of the mouth including lips; ideally in dogs by pulling out the labial pouch and in cats by raising the head until the mouth opens.
Where an animal finds this distressful or an owner is unable to comply, the medication can be put in the food, water or milk.
Where animals are sensitive to the odour of the alcohol preservative, a 10 to 20 minute period should be allowed for dilution and evaporation before the liquid or food is presented to the patient.
Occasionally, animals will shake their heads as a response to the alcohol preservative; cats may salivate excessively and in these cases, presenting it in food, water or milk works.
It can also be added to a sprayer and misted in the air around severely affected patients to calm them down or dropped around bedding area 3 to 5 times daily.
Borate of Sodium – Washing Soda, Mineral Phosphorus, Orange spider, German Chamomile, Rhododendron chrysanthum.
DOGS/CATS: Under 20 lbs/10 kg, 5 drops; 21-60 lbs/ 10-30 kg, 10 drops; 61-100 lbs/ 30-45 kg, 15 drops; over 100 lbs/45 kg, 20 drops. In acute cases (those with sudden onset), the doses can be given every 15 minutes, up to 4 doses.
For cases that are not acute (chronic long term problems), one dose 3 times daily; this is often best started 5-7 days before any situation causing anxious behaviour, e.g. before a fireworks display. Once a response is seen, the administration should be reduced to 2 times daily and eventually once daily.
If the reduction causes symptoms to worsen, original dosing may be continued a little longer before reducing. If a remedy is working well and dosing is not reduced, an aggravation of symptoms from overuse may occur. Stopping the remedy for 3 days will reverse the symptoms, and then treatment can begin as if using for the first time, weaning down as mentioned above.
