Benefits Of Using Bach Flower Remedies With Puppies

Back Flower Remedies are a form of alternative therapy that were developed by Dr. Edward Bach in the 1930s. These remedies are based on the principle that negative emotions and mental states can cause physical and psychological imbalances in the body. Back Flower Remedies are made from the flowers of wild plants and trees and are intended to help balance and harmonize the emotional state, leading to improved physical health and well-being.

Many Benefits

The use of Back Flower Remedies with puppies can provide several benefits, including:

  1. Supporting emotional well-being: Puppies, like humans, can experience a range of emotions such as fear, anxiety, and stress. Back Flower Remedies can help to balance and harmonize these negative emotions, promoting emotional stability and well-being.  
  2. Improving behavior: Negative emotions can lead to behavior problems in puppies, such as aggression, destructive chewing, and separation anxiety. Back Flower Remedies can help to address the underlying emotional issues and improve behavior. In fact, Back Flower Remedies have been credited with saving many dogs from being surrendered to their local pound or rescue.  
  3. Reducing stress caused by travel: Traveling (especially long distances with people the puppy does not know) can cause anxiety, fear, and loneliness. This is why we always give our puppies a specific Bach Flower Remedy - selected specifically to help with traveling – on the day we send them home to their new families. When used correctly, Back Flower Remedies can greatly reduce – and often completely alleviate – these feelings, so traveling is much less stressful on the puppy.
  4. Easing the transition to a new home: Moving to a new home can be a stressful experience for puppies. For example, it is not uncommon for puppies that have been well-balanced, healthy, and happy to develop giardia or other parasites shortly after moving to a new home. This is because the stress caused by the move can lead to emotional imbalances, that cause the illness. Because of this, we always include a complementary remedy bottle specifically formulated to decrease the stress caused by moving to a new home. Back Flower Remedies help to ease the transition by reducing anxiety and promoting feelings of comfort and security.
  5. Supporting the immune system: The immune system is closely linked to the emotional state, and stress can create an inbalanced state that weakens the immune system and makes the body more susceptible to illness, such as colitis and/or parasites. Stress Colitis in Dogs is an excellent read about the subject. Overall, Back Flower Remedies can help to strengthen the immune system and improve overall health and well-being.
  6. Promoting relaxation: Back Flower Remedies can promote relaxation and help to reduce anxiety and stress. This can lead to improved sleep patterns and increased energy levels in puppies.  


Back Flower Remedies are completely safe, even if the wrong flowers are accidentally selected and given! These remedies can be safely used in conjunction with holistic and complementary therapies and medications. In fact, Back Flower Remedies could theoretically be used along with conventional medications to strengthen the immune system so the medications may not be as detrimental to the puppies’ health.


It's important to note that while Back Flower Remedies can provide benefits for puppies, they should not be used as a substitute for veterinary care. If your puppy is experiencing serious health problems, it is important to consult a licensed holistic veterinarian to ensure proper diagnosis and treatment.


In conclusion, Back Flower Remedies can provide a range of benefits for puppies, supporting their emotional well-being, behavior, and overall health and well-being. When used in conjunction with proper veterinary care, Back Flower Remedies can be a valuable tool for promoting the health and happiness of your puppy.

How We Use Bach Flower Remedies

At Seeking Shalom Acres, we use Bach Flower Remedies in a wide variety of ways with our dogs and puppies, as well as ourselves, our cats, our cows, our chickens, and even our plants in the garden!

Bach Flower Remedies are designed to balance negative emotions and tendancies and move them into positive emotions. For example, if we have a dog who is being too possessive of his favorite person (usually our eldest daughter), we will give the dog Chicory, which is a flower that addresses possesiveness and helps balance it into positive support and encouragement. In people, this flower would be appropriate for the helicopter mom who needs to let go and allow her children to spread their wings a little as they grow.
