Pet Remedy® works alongside neurotransmitters, the brain’s natural ‘messengers’ which work by telling the nerve receiving the message either to calm (via gamma amino butyric acid [GABA] pathway) or to get ‘fired up’.
The Pet Remedy® blend of essential oils is valerian based and works alongside these natural relaxation pathways to help calm the nerves of anxious or stressed pets.
It is suitable for all mammals, birds, & reptiles. Cats, dogs rabbits, rodents, horses and parrots can benefit from use of Pet Remedy®.

Why Pet Remedy®
Dogs and other mammals with only a few exceptions, such as humans have an extra organ to help capture smell and to deliver information to the brain, called the Jacobson’s organ, also known as the vomeronasal organ, an organ of chemoreception that is part of the olfactory system of amphibians, reptiles, and mammals, although it does not occur in all tetrapod groups. It is a patch of sensory cells within the main nasal chamber that detects heavy moisture-borne odour particles and delivers messages to the brain.
Aromas elicit an immediate response in the brain.An aroma is captured by the olfactory receptors which then convert the aroma into electrical impulses which is sent directly to the brain and in particular the
limbic part of the brain which is responsible for behaviour, emotions and memory, so you can
imagine animals with their significantly expanded olfactory sensors will respond even more strongly
to aromatherapy than humans. While we don’t yet know which molecules in Pet Remedy®’s
formula are the most effective, the numerous trials with Pet Remedy® have shown that Pet
Remedy® does work to help calm anxious animals.
Pet Remedy® is available in several different dosage forms: spray, wipes and a plug-in diffuser.
How Pet Remedy® works
Pet Remedy, works with the pet’s own natural calming mechanisms by mimicking GABA, a natural calming agent present in all mammals, reptiles, and birds.
The formulation is based on valerian oil and includes essential oils of vetiver, sweet basil and clary sage.
Many valerian preparations are too potent and can sedate rather than calm. Pet Remedy® has low but effective concentrations of valerian
