Repetitive negative behavior patterns can become habit and be detrimental to our animal’s health and well-being. Obsessive compulsive behaviors may start as something small but turn into a constant issue or become dangerous to our pets. Like humans, animals can exhibit obsessive-compulsive behaviors that manifest from internal stressors.
Issues like constant cribbing, licking, or gnawing on items or themselves can be difficult habits to break and can lead to ingestion of foreign objects. Bodily harm such as hair pulling, or over-plucking of feathers can leave to dermal issues or worse.
Obsess Less is a gentle Flower Essence that can help your animal to:
- Process internalized emotions that are leading to obsessive behavior
- Release self-loathing, frustration, or boredom
- Redirect negative feelings into more healthy outlets such as interaction with you
- Break the cycle of negative behaviors
- Reduce harm to themselves
Internalizing our emotions in never healthy, especially for animals. Obsess Less allows your pet to move forward from negative feelings and stop taking it out on themselves.
Animals of any species or age can benefit from Obsess Less. Certain behaviors or situations may benefit well from pairing Obsess Less with other Flower Essences such as Angel of Mercy, Easy Does It, and/or Mellow Out.
Keep away from children. To prevent breaking and ingestion of glass, do not administer flower essence by inserting glass pipette directly into mouth. If using a plastic pipette, do not keep the plastic in bottle, as it may alter the flower essences and cause them to be less effective. Wash pipette after direct contact with mouth to prevent contamination. Keep away from open flames.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE/APPLICATIONS
As the flower essences are in a liquid form, they can be used in a variety of ways to best suit your animal. Use as part of your animal’s daily regimen to optimize effectiveness. Adding more drops than recommended will not increase effect or hasten results.
For short term situations where the negative behavior is displayed, use one hour prior to event. If used for training, incorporate into your animal’s daily care regimen, preferably one hour before training session.
For the most effective and immediate results, placing the recommended number of drops into animal’s mouth using pipette provided or a plastic pipette is best. Wash pipette thoroughly after use before returning it to the bottle.
For feral or hard to approach animals, utilizing a spray is helpful. Add 3-4 drops to 8oz. distilled, purified or spring water in a spray bottle. Spray directly into air in the direction of your animal’s mouth, nose and ears as well as their paws, hooves, or feet.
The easiest way to incorporate them into your life is to add the flower essences directly to your animal’s water bowl or bucket. Change water daily for best results and replenish the flower essences with each water change.
Apply recommended number of drops to your pet’s favorite hard treat. Using hard dog biscuits, carrots or apples is best as these will not absorb the flower essences quickly and affect efficacy. This method is not recommended as the essences may be absorbed by the food and not be as effective as placing the drops directly into the mouth or water.
Note: The rhythmic use of the flower essences improves their efficacy. The effects are improved by using them on a more frequent and consistent basis, not by increasing the dosage at one time.
Keep container tightly sealed. Keep out of direct sunlight. To prolong life of product, keep in refrigerator after opening.
Shake well before using. The best way to shake the flower essences is to use succession. To use this method, vigorously tap the bottom of the bottle on the palm of your hand as this activates the flower essences inside.
A short loading dose is recommended when beginning to use the flower essences. Simply use the recommended dosage two to three times daily for the first three days. Once the desired balance has been reached, use recommended dosage one to two times daily as part of your animal’s daily regimen to optimize efficacy.

I have a 13 year old pitbull that started getting obsessive compulsive about gnawing on her blanket. She also was licking her flank constantly. I couldn’t get her to stop. I’d correct her and then 5 minutes later she was back to licking or gnawing. I started adding this to her water on the suggestion of a friend and she has since significantly decreased how much she gnaws and licks. She’s much more willing to hang out and relax with us.
I adopted a female cat about a year ago. She bonded to me very quickly. When I started seeing a new person, she started getting very posessive of me and she started peeing all over my clothes and bed. She was clearly pretty mad that she wasn’t the only one in my life. I put her on this and within a few days I noticed huge changes. She stopped peeing on everything and she stopped meowing like crazy when he came over. I’m super happy with this product.
My boy is OCD and I have used this in the past, with good results. Its only been a couple days and I see a change. He isnt chewing on himself as much.
