Like us, dogs have anxieties and fears. And though they may not be exactly the same as our own, they still cause stress and physical reactions just the same.
Your dog communicates his emotional state through body language and behavior. When dogs get anxious they tend to act out. These behaviors can range from something as small as pacing a room or excessive barking. Their behaviors can also turn destructive like chewing the furniture, pooping in the house and even aggression towards people.
If your dog does these things do not worry. We have a few all-natural options that can help ease your dog’s anxiety without effecting their personality.
Herbsmith Calm Shen
Calm Shen is calming blend of herbs for dogs exhibiting nervousness, hyperactivity, discontentment, or responding to environmentally induced stress. Calm Shen helps dogs maintain a normal and relaxed disposition while also helping them cope with external stresses.
Calm Shen is a great formula for behavioral problem management and may help to curb destructive behavior by helping dogs maintain calmness. Calm Shen may also reduce hyperactivity by promoting a sense of relaxation and mental alertness without drowsiness. The herbs help to maintain contentment during separation, travel, times of loud noises such as fireworks or thunderstorms, tension caused by changes in your pet’s daily routine, or other situations that may cause anxiousness.
Calm Shen supports balanced behavior, a normal emotional balance, and provides help to dogs that are restless due to the effects of normal environmental stress. Calm Shen comes in a powder form or a treat form.
Pet Naturals Calming Chews
Calming for Dogs is a calming supplement chew designed to support relaxation especially during times of increased stress. When your dog is cowering because of the nearby thunderstorm or dealing with you leaving the house for the day by exhibiting stress behaviors, Calming for Dogs is the perfect way to support calm behaviors without sedation. No herbals!
Composure Bite Sized Chews
The ingredients in Composure work synergistically to support relaxation without changing your dog’s personality or energy levels. The C3 colostrum calming complex supports stress reduction and cognitive function; L-Theanine helps the body produce other amino acids to bring specific neurotransmitters back into balance; and B vitamins (thiamine) affect the central nervous system to help calm anxious animals.
The ingredients are well researched and recognized for their natural ability to support balanced behavior. When combined in our formula, they provide a calming effect to support a relaxed state without causing drowsiness or impaired motor skills.
Composure is easily administered in a tasty chicken liver flavored soft chew and can be used as a daily supplement or, as needed in stressful situations.
