Store the bottle at room temperature away from direct sunlight, microwaves, cell phones or strong odors such as cooking smells or perfumes (especially camphor which is in some skin ointments and lotions).
Succus (hit the bottle against the palm of your hand or a book) the bottle each time before administering a dose. Give it a good hard whack from a distance of 1-2 feet. This will slightly change the potency of the remedy which helps it to be even more effective. The number of succussions will usually be between 2-10. Use 10 succussions for your pet’s first doses.
Take the dropper out of the bottle and replace any liquid that is in it back in the bottle. Now take a fresh 1 drop (not a full dropper) and add it to 1 cup of distilled, filtered or bottled water (ideally use a glass or ceramic mug). Stir with a spoon until well mixed.
1 teaspoon (=5 ml=cc) is the average starting dog dose whereas ~1/2 teaspoon (2 cc) is most commonly used initially in cats. The dose will be individualized for each patient. Fresh solution and a new glass must be used for each dose.
Give the proper dose using a teaspoon or syringe (whichever is easiest-clean syringe after each dose with boiling water). If administration is very difficult, try mixing the remedy with a small amount of milk or cream in a bowl. Do not give any other food or treats for at least 15 minutes before or after the remedy.
Discard the rest of the water in the cup (Hint: it’s great for your plants!).
