It is always wise to ask a vet what types of remedies is safe for your pet, but if you have an emergency and cannot get to a homeopathic vet, you can try the natural remedies below. We have successfully used these remedies with our own pets and they were better in no time.

If your dog ingested chocolate, aspirin, or anything else that could poison him or her, an activated charcoal pill will solve the problem.

Lavender Oil – If your pet is prone to anxiousness, lavender oil is your answer. The soothing qualities of lavender will have your pet calm and peaceful in no time. Apply a few drops at the back of the head or on top of the head and watch the anxiousness flow away.
Garlic – Garlic is great for treating bacterial infections, treating inner ear swelling, and eliminating ear mite infections. To treat ear and other infections, mix a clove of garlic with olive oil and use an eyedropper to apply to the affected areas.
These simple remedies can be made or kept at home and easily applied for a range of different problems. These are natural products and shouldn’t cause any negative effects, but if any of these cause strange reactions in your pet, take them to the vet immediately.
