There are several ways to give Jackson Galaxy Solution to animals, but no matter which method, always do this first: Tap the bottom of the bottle against the palm of your hand (or shoulder, or other surface) approximately 5 – 10 times before administering. This activates the essence formula and should be done each time immediately prior to administering.
Put a few drops in your hand, rub hands together and pet your animal’s head, body, ears, and/or paws. Add 3-5 drops to water and food (Remember more drops does not equal better results) Use our optional spray top to mist a room, carrier, bedding, car interior, litterbox area, stall, trailer, or other specific problem area. Misting the house or apartment is a great way to treat the whole household. (Do not mist the animal directly!) Apply a few drops to or mist a favorite toy. If they resist touch, let the drops fall directly on fur, top of paws, etc. Jackson Galaxy Solutions are not like medicines or drugs and need not be swallowed: once the drops contact the animal, they are doing their job. In this vein, your animal companion should think of receiving the formula as a good thing, so don’t try to force it by giving it to them orally – stressing your friend out while administering the essences will only serve to undermine our intent.
We recommend starting with 3 - 4 times a day, for 2 weeks. Once improvement is established, usually within 2-4 weeks, you can wean the animal off by gradually decreasing the frequency of administration: adding a few drops to the drinking water along with a once-a-day administration will probably be adequate. Some animals may need to remain on essence treatment long term, and some may see resolution very quickly. We have found that most animals will benefit from long-term administration of a maintenance solution.
