RESCUE?
Hi CV,
Would just like to hear your thoughts on Rescue Remedy?
I have a border collie female, 4, she is petrified of any noise, thunder and clapping sounds. She lies mostly in a corner in the lounge. She is very lovable but I can't take her to a crowded place for example a flea market for she would pull on the lead towards the car the whole time! I walk with her every evening and then she is fine untill a car backfires or some noise upsets her.....!

Rescue remedy works very well in some animals and appears to have no effect in others. You will need to use if for a couple of weeks before you can decide if it is useful or not. Using a DAP vapourizer in your home and desensitizing cds can be useful to get her used to loud sounds. Let me know if you need assistance with this.
