My husband and I always take our vacations with our two pugs. The last time we were travelling, I gave them Bach Rescue Remedy during the car ride and also when we arrived at our destination. Usually it takes them a long time to settle down in the car and also when we get to the hotel or rental. I can honestly say that the Rescue Remedy helped tremendously. They were calmer and more relaxed.
Below is an excerpt from the Bach Flower Remedy website:
Works wonders for animals that are impatient, fearful, have been through a traumatic situation, have fear of thunder and fireworks or do not feel themselves.
The original Bach Flower Remedies has been used on humans and animals for more than 80 years.
Animals have emotions too. They feel fear, anger, jealousy, depression, happiness and joy just like us. The Bach Flower Remedies are able to help our animals when they have negative emotions just as they help us when we are emotionally out of balance. Unfortunately, we are not able to ask our pet why it acts depressed, but we do know if it misses a friend or gets overly excited around new people and that is how we select the correct remedies for our animals.
