Valerian: good for anxious or restless pets


Are you going on a long car drive with your pet and often find the pet gets anxious or restless? My dog does this. We stop for all those annoying tolls in Chicago and she gets up for each one, paces around the back of the car, and then works herself into another asthma attack (she has asthma). Next time we take a roadtrip with her, I will be trying out this recipe, which is specifically for pets. You can also use this for cats that have been injured or need to be taken in to the vet. Cats, by the way, love valerian more than they love catnip, so they won’t be upset that you are drugging them with their favorite thing in the whole world…

Crush 1 tsp. of dried Valerian root, and then add it to 3.5 cups of cold water. Leave for 24 hours. Strain the decoction into a clean bottle. This will keep for 48 hours in a refrigerator. For a medium sized cat, add 3 drops of the decoction to a small amount of water. Obviously, add more for dogs, put it in their water.
