Rescue or First Aid remedy for horses
The First Aid remedy for horses has its origin, just like the First Aid remedy for people, in the classic Bach Rescue remedy. Bach flowers Larch and White Chestnut have been added to the mix.
The First Aid remedy for horses also consists of much less alcohol than the Rescue Remedy as you would know it from the shop. That’s why it’s much safer to administer it to horses or foals.
When should the First Aid remedy for horses be used?
The Bach First Aid remedy for horses is most efficient in situations where acute stress or anxiety take the upper hand. These situations are a good example.
These are some examples in which the First Aid remedy for horses can be used:
- Horse in panic: Because of passing vehicles, sudden movements, new objects, brightly coloured sails or umbrellas, loud bangs, other panic reactions…
- Horse has sudden anxiety: Fear of the tracks, fear of a particular object, fear of a particular person, or other horses, fear of the trailer
- Horse has stress: Before and/or after a game, before and/or after an examination, when the vet visits, when the farrier visits, before and after being transported.
- Horse has a trauma: After being mistreated, neglected, after being heavily startled on the tracks or in the plains, after running against the barbed wire, separating mother and foal, being left alone, after injury, after being bitten by another horse, after fighting another horse…
- Horse is suddenly ill: colic, a different eating pattern, other illnesses…
- A major event: Changing owners, changing stables, saying goodbye to a befriended horse that was next to him/her at the stables, moving, in the trailer… For foals: after being born, separation from the mother
How should the First Aid remedy for horses be used?
The First Aid remedy for horses should be used in situations where emotions such as stress or anxiety take the upper hand. When that’s the case, you give four drops directly on the tongue, or on something sweet like a sugar cube, or rub them on their nose. This should be repeated every 5 to 10 minutes, until the symptoms of anxiety and stress have gone. There is no danger of over dosage.
If your horse is becoming ill, then it will also help to give 6 x 4 drops a day. This will help your horse to regenerate, and heal faster.
How long should the First Aid remedy for horses be administered?
You should give the First Aid remedy for horses after a major event or moments of intense anxiety or fear. If you can predict such a moment (your horse is participating a game for example), then you can start giving the First Aid remedy for horses before the situation has developed. You can administer the First Aid remedy for horses straight after an event, and continue this for a few days.
If the fear or anxiety is persistent, or your horse remains ill for longer than a week while you have been giving them the First Aid remedy for horses, then there might be a deeper root to the problem. In that case, a personal mix will be better. When composing this type of mix, the characteristics and needs of your horse as an individual are taken into account, and this way, deeper causes of anxiety, stress or illness are also treated, allowing your horse to feel better again.
