Which Spirit Essences to assist in injections?

Dear Spirit Essences,

My cat was recently diagnosed with diabetes and is now on medication. When we try to give her the shot, she flinches and runs away. We are wondering which formula could help her calm down for the injection, which she needs twice a day.


Thank you for writing! We are sorry to hear about this diagnosis, but glad that it is under control.

Stress Stopper is a great formula to take a look at if you will be doing these injections short-term (a couple of weeks or so.) Stress Stopper is formulated to help animals adapt and cope with unusual or stressful situations, such as thunderstorms, boarding, remodeling, visitors, or similar situations. This formula is designed to help animals feel grounded and protected.

Stress Stopper is formulated with Scleranthus essence, which is known to help turn feelings of doubt and uncertainty into confidence and stability. This essence promotes inner strength and clarity for those who need it. Stress Stopper contains many other essences that can help balance an animal and help them feel grounded during times of turmoil. The Scleranthus essence that we use comes from a wildflower preserve and garden sanctuary located in California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains.

If you are going to be doing these injections for a long period of time, take a look at Intensive Care. Intensive Care is formulated to provide energetic grounding, support, and uplift through the most trying of physical times. These include accidents, shock, pre-surgery, and the crucial weeks following surgery. This formula may also help when an animal is going through cancer treatments.

Intensive Care is formulated using many essences that can help an animal feel calm and balanced during the toughest of times, including Aloe Vera essence. Aloe Vera essence is known for its soothing properties and vibration. The Aloe Vera essence we use in Intensive Care is made on the island of Bermuda!

We hope this was helpful! Best wishes!

Our formulas work best when used consistently - meaning tapping the bottom of the bottle on the palm of your hand immediately before administering, 3-4 times a day, and 3-5 drops each time.

Please remember that Jackson Galaxy's Spirit Essences work best when part of a more holistic treatment program, which may include proper veterinary care, diet, behavior modification, and other holistic modalities.
