Helps settle my anxious dogAfter trying so many things to help my wee dog with her noise phobia & getting worried about the start of firework season I had almost given up hope of finding anything to help her, until now. My wee dog is so much less anxious around loud noises so I have hope that we will make it through firework season without the need for medical help from the vet. My vet is really pleased how well she is now coping so I am hoping that this year the fireworks will be less stressful for my wee girl.

Calms my anxious and easily stressed catPrior to finding this product my cat had anxiety issues and would over groom to the extent of making himself bald and would not settle. He was half bald when I adopted him from a rescue centre and was picked on by the other cats. I tried various things - prescribed, over the counter and herbal. These tablets are the only thing that calms him. They were originally prescribed - one tablet a day, by the vet after nothing else worked. I tried taking him off them but the anxiety soon returned and the vet advised taking them long term. The vet assured me they are safe as they are herbal. Occasionally my cat may need a calming injection if something triggers stress but this is rare, maybe annually. I now have a happy, stress free cat with a full coat of fur.
WILL THIS WORK?My 8 month old Greek rescue dog, is severely travel sick (goodness only knows how she survived her trip to the UK). We have tried all sorts of things and the vets haven't been much help to be honest. I have researched these pills and gave her 5 tablets, which must be palatable as she ate them out of my hand and also sprayed some calming spray on a bandana. She was sick after our two hour journey, but recovered well. Unfortunately, my husband thought I'd given her the pills and I thought that he had and between us we didn't give her the pills on our return journey. The result was horrendous as she was so very sick, much more so than our outward journey, proving that these Homeopathic pills did help.
This really does work for our Shih Tzu & takes a few days to get into her system but it calms her down.We are very pleased with the results & its natural
