SMALL MAMMALS such as rabbits, ferrets, hamsters and pot bellied pigs can be dosed by weight as for cats and dogs in previous section. For severe cases a drop can be diluted in 1 ml of water or other oral rehydration fluid and given to the patient orally, taking care to avoid aspiration of the fluid into the respiratory tract by the patient. 3 doses whose volume is appropriate to the size of the patient should be given from the diluted product over a 24 hour period, e.g. 2 drops for a mouse or small budgie, 4 drops for a large guinea pig. For acute cases it can be repeated as for cats and dogs in previous dosing section.
Optimally, the liquid preparation should be dropped directly into the mucous membrane of the mouth including lips; ideally in dogs by pulling out the labial pouch, and in cats by raising the head until the mouth opens. Where an animal finds this distressful, or an owner is unable to comply, the medication can be put in the food, water or milk. Where animals are sensitive to the odor of the alcohol preservative, a 10-20 minute period should be allowed for dilution and evaporation before the liquid or food is presented to the patient. Occasionally, animals will shake their heads as a response to the alcohol preservative; cats may salivate excessively and in these cases, presenting it in food, water or milk works. It can also be added to a sprayer and misted in the air around severely affected patients to calm them down, or dropped around bedding area 3-5 times daily.
Basic precautions such as closing windows and curtains, putting on some background music, or similar cover noise, to further muffle the trigger noise, having company with the pet where someone will sit and calmly talk to the pet and stroke, it if this is apprpriate to the pet, will all enhance the efficacy of the medicine. Desensitization with CDs designed to combat phobias can be useful as can be behavioral therapy. The use of diffusers can be done alonside this medicine, but will not in all cases enhance the effect. The patient should be treataed both with and without the diffuser. Chemical sedation can also be used alonside HomeoPet Anxiety, but it should be possible to use much reduced doses to give the same level of anxiety reduction, consequently with reduced side effects and can, in many cases, be done without completely.
