Back in October we adopted a 4-month-old rescue puppy (Lab mix) who, while sweet as sugar, had/has a medical issue that prevented us from enrolling her in “Puppy Kindergarten” as we’d planned. As with a lot of rescue pups, she also has strong separation anxiety issues & timidity/fear of a lot of everyday stuff.
While our vet did give us a prescription for a mild sedative, I haven’t yet filled it, & after seeing a few tv commercials for this company & reading a lot of reviews, decided to give their “Calming” product a try. She’s a solid 40# now, but I first only gave her one chew just to make sure she wasn’t allergic to any of the ingredients. No reactions, so the following day I gave her two & what a difference!! This product does NOT zonk the dog out at all – she behaves normally, but just with some of the lunatic edge taken off.
We don’t give it to her every day, as she’s not a nut every day, but it definitely helps for those times when she seems overly anxious or crazy, & will be a big help until we are finally able to get her into socialization opportunities & obedience classes.
Bottom Line: While I obviously wish the product was a little less expensive, I do understand that you get what you pay for as far as quality, & natural ingredients are always (for whatever reason) more expensive than synthetics.
