General Disclaimer: Our remedies are formulated to support the natural immune system of horses, pets and livestock. We do not claim to treat, medicate or cure any health conditions. If you are worried an animal may be in pain or suffering please contact your veterinarian.

Made in New Zealand. 100% Natural and Non-toxic. Homeopathic Preparation.

Contains equal parts of: Borax, Calc-carb, Gelsemium, Ignatia, Stramonium
Base: Vegetable glycerine & purified water 

Remedies are dispensed in a 90ml food grade aluminium bottle with a hygienic serum pump lid with over-cap. 

90ml bottle = 230 doses

This product can be continued long term.


A dose consists of 2 pumps of remedy onto the tongue, gums or lips. Can also be given on a piece of food. Most horses love the sweet taste but if your horse is nervous about being dosed, you can put the dose on your finger and dab it on their lips or gums. They do not need to swallow the dose, it just has to come into contact with their tongue or gums.

Dose twice a day for 7 days, then stop dosing and observe for the next week. If symptoms are still present repeat the 7 day dosing period. Once behaviour has improved stop dosing but store the remedy in a cool place in case the behaviour is triggered again, at which point you would do the 7 days dosing (twice a day). 

Note: the effect is cumulative and you are likely to see improved results over a period of 3-5 days. This remedy is not suitable for dosing via the water trough.

It's all about how you use it

I issue a dose when I put halter on, another when they are tied for grooming and tacking up then again before mounting or leaving the yard/loading. If they 'activate' a top-up is needed some are good to go after three doses others need regular topping up.

If they go 'right off the deep end' you've lost the battle and another remedy maybe required like spook buster.

I've really found it useful for napping behaviour that makes it frustrating to maintain focus when working - ie they're checking out what their friends are doing instead of listening and tuning in. Also when they need to travel on their own and find it hard to load since it means going out alone.

The remedies help them cope and stay within threshold - but it's not a sedative or a miracle cure that transform your firebreathing dragon into a pusscat!

Separation Anxiety spray

Not too sure about this product yet. I have a young horse who gets very attached to others. He’s great at home but terrible at events if he’s travelled with another horse & that horse goes away from him. I’ve only tried the spray once so far, but in fairness, should have done it before he lost the plot, rather than during. Will keep on with it and see if it helps. Will update my review as I go. It’s worth a crack. There aren’t many products around for this problem, so recommend giving it a go. Just plan to do the spray before taking the other horse away, so it has time to do it’s thing before anxiety is likely to kick in, rather than when it’s in full swing.

Hi Pam, thanks for your feedback. I would recommend giving your boy a 5 day induction of twice daily dosing (if you haven't already tried this). You dose for the 5 days whether or not he needs it, with the aim of reducing the intensity of the anxiety when separation happens in the future. So do the 5 days and then after that, just dose on days that you know he'll be separated, eg going to a show. Give him a dose that morning and then (if practical) a second dose about 20-30 mins before the separation. We'd love to hear how you get on.
