Herbal remedies to reduce feelings of panic and promote feelings of calmness and safety in dogs and cats.  

Animals routinely experience irregularities in bodily systems, including the Central and Autonomic Nervous systems, requiring a correction to restore emotional balance, to reduce fear and to promote relaxation, to balance mood and provide feelings of comfort and security.

Some pets are more anxious than others and may startle, jump, feel afraid and shy easily. Situations or traumatic experiences can make even the calmest of pets fearful and anxious. Most pets are sensitive to loud noises and cats are very sensitive to new or changing surroundings. Fireworks, thunderstorms, a trip to the vet, small children and moving are all examples of things that can cause your pet to panic and feel uncertain. 

Pets can also develop phobias to certain triggers and may attach anxious feelings to past events and panic at seeing or hearing something that reminds them of previous trauma. How you react as a pet owner will also shape your pet's reaction, either reducing fear or amplifying it. If you give undue attention over an event in which your pet shows panic, you may inadvertently be reinforcing their anxiety and reaffirming their fear.  

Anxiety in pets is a very common problem, representing one of the top reasons for veterinary visits. Some pet owners are surprised to learn that our pets sense our stress and fear and can develop anxiety disorders if exposed to human stress for long periods of time. Other reasons pets develop panic phobias include prolonged separation, left alone for long periods of time, are ill, are confined to a small space, lack social contact, suffer from boredom and have too little exercise. 

Other reasons for panic and stress include: 

Separation anxiety from another pet

Addition to family (baby, spouse, another animal, visiting guests)

A new home, relocation, boarding, kenneling

Illness

Poor nutrition (diet which contains processed foods including corn, wheat, soy, meat by product, other fillers, preservatives and additives)

Change of owner

Grooming or vet visits

Emotional stress: abuse, fear, traumatic event, genetic nervous temperament, death of a family member or pet companion, jealousy or rivalry, stress and poor health

Change in daily routine

Crowds, small groups of people and small children

Breeding

Noises, pressure or phobias: thunder, lightning, fireworks, sirens, loud parties, dryers, vacuum cleaner

The most common anxiety disorders include separation anxiety, noise phobias and social anxiety:

Separation anxiety is one of the most common anxiety disorders and typically occurs when pets are left alone and separated from their owners. Destructive behavior such as continuous barking and whining, chewed furniture, scratching of doors or soiled floors may be exhibited when the pet is left alone.

Noise phobia occurs when pets are fearful of loud noises such as thunderstorms, firecrackers, gunshots, sound of birds, a vacuum cleaner or a hairdryer. Often, when animals are frightened by loud noises they may run and hide to a safer haven. In trying to escape, they may endanger themselves by jumping through windows, digging or running away. Other signs of fear that may be displayed include excessive barking, meowing, drooling, trembling, chewing, urinating or defecating.

Social anxiety most often occurs when pets have not been socialized at an early age. Pets that have not been socialized are fearful and overwhelmed by crowds, small groups of people as well as other animals. When the pet becomes anxious, he may feel trapped and cornered which in turn causes him to react aggressively or run to a safe retreat.

The symptoms of panic and anxiety include:

Excessive barking

Nervousness

Whining and moaning

Trembling or shivering

Drooling and panting

Pacing

Poor appetite

Licking skin

Chewing of skin

Hyperactivity

Excitability

Soiling the house

Tearing up household items in your absence
