to Rascal Remedies. My name is Kylie, I formed Rascal Remedies, to
assist animal owners with animal behavioural and health problems using
natural remedies. I have worked in animal care for the past 15 years
and have had a life long passion for animals and their welfare. My
first dog, 'Linus' a Staffordshire Bull Terrier, not only dragged
me around the backyard and protected me from the world, he also taught
me the trust and the bond that animals create with us. Linus
me on my path of caring for a varitable menagerie of animals of all
shapes and sizes; from horses to mice and most everything between.
When I left school l obtained a job as a veterinary nurse and then
went on to get a Advanced Diploma of Veterinary Nursing. As time went
on l worked at various other clinics and a Veterinary Hospital where
l gained experience in emergency surgery, post op care, handling wildlife,
dog grooming and even conducting puppy pre-schools.
my experience with animals (and owners) I am very much aware of
how the emotional imbalances that occur when an animal is sick or
through jealously, anger or grieving can cause illness, the same
as it does in humans. When it comes to diagnosing illness or diseases
and treating physical problems in our animals, Vets are essential.
When it comes to treating problems stemming from emotional stresses,
I believe we should move away from standard drug treatments,
which can lead to a relapses or prolong an illness, to the more holistic
and sustainable methods of natural remedies.
my time at the veterinary hospital l met a number of vets and nursing
staff who were interested in natural therapy and had many discussions
with these animal health professionals and with animal owners on the
over use and long term effects of drug therapy. l decided to study
for a Diploma of Natural Therapy for Animals and along the way l attended
many seminars on Flower essence. I found them a safe natural way to
assist animals emotional problems. I have since spent years using
flower essences in vet clinics, before and after surgery to assist
in recovery, and also at home on my own menagerie which now includes
3 dogs, 2 horses, 2 alpacas, 20 chooks, 2 roosters and a duck, not
including the numerous amounts of wildlife that people bring to me
and for which l have had great results.
