Positive effects for usMy cavalier has been on these one tablet a day for just under a week and already seen a difference in him, he’s was much more settled staying at family’s house while I was away on the weekend and more confident around them where He used to hide under the table from them.
tablets goodOur basset has epilepsy and is on medication every 12 hrs which mostly control it, but we do find she is better on these tablets as well, she has 3 in a morning and 2 later on. They really seem to help
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.
Helps settle my anxious dogFound something that works at last
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.
