About this page:
Modern lifestyles and pressures lead to higher levels of anxiety and anxiety related problems in many dogs. This need combined with a moving social preference for natural medicines rather than man-made ones has produced an emerging market of ‘Traditional’ and ‘Herbal’ remedies. This project is aimed at testing the efficacy of one particular remedy, flower essences. Long hailed as a natural, completely safe, and highly effective treatment for a host of physical and emotional ailments, this project will use a traditional mix of flower essences and test whether it helps to reduce stress in a selection of dogs during stressful situations. Its efficacy will be measured through measuring various stress markers before and after the stressfull event with and without the treatment, comparing and analysing the results.
