 So someone mentioned this in another post and I realized... 4th of July... fireworks... plus the thunderstorms we've been having for a week straight... my dog is very stressed out.

So I was running errands anyway so I went to pick up some Rescue Remedy which I've seen mentioned on here several times.  So I went to Wegmans, and they, being the very impressive store that they are, had Rescue Remedy Pet and Rescue Remedy (I chose the spray people version because it seemed to be the best bang for the buck).

From what I can tell, they have the same proportions of everything and the same everything, except the pet one has glycerine and water (80% and 20% respectively) in place of the alcohol (27%).  So I'm assuming this means the herbs are "tea'd" right into the glycerine and water, whereas the other is a stock mixture mixed with alcohol to help preserve it.  They're also very similarly priced, both under 10 bucks with the pet one being about a dollar more (and including 3 extra ml).

Does anyone know what the actual difference is?  I bought both.  I figured I could either return the pet one, or keep both and use the human one for me when I start my new job, which (if I'm hired) should be extraordinarily stressful and challenging.

 

*nota bene:  I did a quick google and found that glycerine can be used to stay cool and to preserve hydration (used by athletes, etc)... so this could be good for the dog, who tends to hole up in small areas and therefore get pretty warm... plus dogs pant when they're nervous like they do when they're hot.

Be silly. Be honest. Be kind.
