Rescue Remedy is one of the most valuable products on the market. It is a Bach Flower remedy, similar in some ways to a homeopathic, but prepared in a different manner. Many books are available on the subject, including ones for animals. See the book page for one to start with.
Rescue Remedy is designed for stressful situations and times where the ?flight or fight? response would be appropriate. It comes in a small vial diluted in alcohol. To use it with horses, put 6-10 drops directly in the mouth for a fast response, or place 8-10 drops in the water bucket each time it is changed.
Rescue will take the stress out of the situation quickly and very safely. In a colic situation, take Rescue yourself, give it to your horse, then call the vet, you will be much more coherent. On the 4th of July, Rescue and/or the homeopathic remedy Aconite can help keep your horses sane around the firecrackers. Or put 2-3 drops of Rescue in your watering can and water all transplanted plants for several days, they will rarely wilt.
