Calming Herbal Remedy: Valerian & Co

Valerian & Co can calm pets affected by stressful situations or noise phobias. It consists of Vervain & Mistletoe and Valerian. They act as nervines, which relax the nervous system and reduce anxiety without adversely affecting muscles. Even cats like this combination of herbs and reducing stress can help with unwanted behaviour like urine spraying. We also use it to help with high blood pressure.

Herbs should never substitute training, desensitisation and good management of the environment and situations. But, especially when other efforts are in place, they can be a big help. For clinical conditions we prescribe individual mixes after seeing the animal. But for some common problems we have supplements ready for you.

At A.P.Vet we support local growers wherever possible & strive to have a positive effect on the environment. Valerian & Co. contains mistletoe, which thrives in Herefordshire where Breinton Botanics & Apiary harvest it from organic orchards. The Valerian and Vervain tinctures we use are made to the highest standards by Avicenna Herbs in Wales.

The time of harvest and which plant parts are used have a crucial impact on mistletoe’s medicinal efficacy. The products used for cancer differ greatly from those used for anxiety and for normalising blood pressure. For animal cancer cases we recommend Iscador, which requires a prescription.

Please don’t harvest Mistletoe yourself for medicinal use as incorrect parts of the plant or processing can result in a toxic product. If you want extensive information, go to:
