Black Cohosh - Animal Aggression & Veterinary Medicine PDF Stampa E-mail

In her new book, Dr. Laura Cutullo features case histories and practical examples using North American flower essences for treating animals. One such case involved using Black Cohosh indicated for a dog showing aggressive tendencies toward other dogs and with people other than his caretaker. Dr. Cutullo was able to discern and begin to understand the reason of his behavior: “It occurred to me that perhaps the dog wanted his guardian, whom he loved so much, to be for him only, in a sole relationship. His behavior was not caused by jealousy, but his had a manipulating and possessive attitude resulting in violent and somehow devastating conduct. This was the reason why I decided to use for the first time Black Cohosh. Little by little, the dog’s attacks became less frequent and were directed only toward people with particular features. Finally, the dog never again attacked anyone.”

Dr. Cutullo, Milan, is a holistic veterinarian, homeopath and flower essence practitioner. Flower Essence Services is very pleased to announce her new book entitled, Californian Flowers for Animals. This is a comprehensive handbook explaining the meaning and application of the core concepts of flower essence therapy as it pertains to veterinary medicine. It is currently only available in Italian, but an English translation is in preparation.

Dr. Cutullo speaks of her book:

“This book is solely the result of my personal daily experience using flower remedies with my patients, the animals. …

It is time to understand that animals are individuals with a full emotional/spiritual world. Dogs, cats, and also other pets, not only live and share experiences with their caregivers, they also are taking on our deepest issues, helping and protecting us either physically or emotionally. We should feel really grateful to them…

On the other hand, we can make their lives better, fuller and more peaceful, thanks also to the powerful support of the flowers, which are able to reach the intimate emotional side, rebalancing it whenever needed, when our relationship with animals is problematic. In other words, when they - and we, too - need it.”

This book, Dr. Cutullo’s third, explains the complex psychology of dogs and cats, as well as the relationships animals have with their guardians. The book also includes an introduction to animal spirituality, methods for administering flower essences to animals, the possible obstacles to therapy, and questions practitioners should ask guardians – and also themselves – to make easier finding the most effective flower essences for particular situations.

The book, with an introduction written by Patricia Kaminski and delicate comical drawings by Köbi Wiesendanger, describes 94 flower essences and additional compound formulas. One section includes a repertory of symptoms with easy to use tables giving an overview of indications and flower essences.


“Animals, sharing their lives with us, help us to maintain an emotional connection with Mother Earth, while flowers tie these connections. Please love them—animals and flowers both—and more than that, respect their essence while enjoying their presence.” 
– Dr. Laura Cutullo
