Composure Mini Bite Sized Chews provide a calming formula to support balanced behavior for dogs and cats. Composure Mini is ideal for situations when your pet is exposed to increased environmental stressors, including: changes to the environment, company or parties, veterinary or grooming visits, boarding or holidays, boredom or separation anxiety, moving or traveling, fireworks and thunderstorms. Composure Mini will help stop stress related behavior while keeping your pet's personality and energy level. It is safe to use daily, and does not cause addiction, drowsiness or impaired motor skills. This advanced formula contains: C3 (Colostrum Calming Complex) is isolated from colostrums proteins, which have been found to support cognitive functioning and support stress reduction. C3 works synergistically with L-Theanine, which is also in this formula, to promote relaxation and cognition in pets. L-Theanine supports calming and relaxation, reduces irritability and low mood states. This natural occurring amino acid is found in green tea, and is a derivative of glutamic acid, a neurotransmitter in the brain. It can help the body produce Dopamine, GABA and Tryptophan, other calming amino acids, and helps bring certain neurotransmitters into better balance. Thiamine (Vitamin B1) helps manage stress and reduces irritability. Thiamine has been shown to calm and soothe anxious animals by affecting the central nervous system. Without Thiamine, pets exhibit mental confusion, muscular weakness, muscle spasms, nervousness, as well as weight and appetite loss during times of stress.

Do Calming Chews Work for Dogs?
Answer

If the dog has persistent anxiety issues, daily calming supplements are the best solution. On the other hand, if the dog has situational anxiety like a vet visit, separation anxiety, or extended travel, giving them supplements an hour or two before the triggering event works the best. To achieve the best result, it's imperative to provide them to your dog before it's already wound up. Afterward, dog parents can follow the label instructions to dose. Calming supplements like vetriscience composure works the best in dogs that have mild general and situational anxiety. In case your dog has severe or chronic anxiety, it's best to consult a veterinarian. The vet will be able to tell you whether your pup needs medication or specific training. For instance, if the anxiety is causing aggressive behavior in the dog, the vet might suggest seeing a behaviorist. Studies have shown that calming supplements, whether pills or bite-sized chews, effectively relieve stress. The study was conducted by measuring cortisol and serotonin levels in the dog's bloodstream before and after administering the supplement.

What Are the Side Effects of Calming Treats for Dogs?
Answer

In general, calming treats are safe for dogs. These calming treats are made from natural ingredients like valerian root, L-tryptophan, Hemp, chamomile, and melatonin. These natural ingredients promote calm behavior and aid in relieving everyday stress. However, on the flip side, every dog reacts to active ingredients differently. Therefore, it's recommended to talk to a veterinarian before offering any new treats to your dog. Additionally, dog parents must monitor their pets for any indication of side effects or unwanted reactions. Typically, calming chews might cause a drowsy or sedating effect on the dog. To avoid any complications, look for calming supplements or chews formulated or recommended by veterinarians. These undergo a battery of tests to check ingredients, potency and have higher quality manufacturing process.

Do Calming Chews Help With Barking?
Answer

Excessive barking can be quite a nuisance, but there's always a root cause. Some of these root causes are fear, anxiety, pain, discomfort, boredom, attention-seeking, territorial behavior, and more. There are several methods to curtail excessive barking, depending on the root cause. Calming chews help with the barking caused by fear or anxiety. However, bear in mind that in severe cases of anxiety or heightened stress, your dog will need prescription medication as calming chews won't help at all. Therefore, it's best to take your dog to a veterinarian for evaluation and get the most appropriate calming solution prescribed. However, one thing is for sure, if your dog is already anxious or scared, the last thing you'd want to do is to scream or punish the dog.

How Often Can I Give My Dog Calming Chews?
Answer

Dog parents can give calming chews to the dog daily or as-needed, depending on the situation. It's also safe to double or triple the dosage in times of heightened stress. The general rule of thumb is to give half a chew to dogs weighing under 25lbs, one chew to dogs between 25-50lbs, two chews to dogs between 51-100lbs, and three chews to dogs over 100lbs, daily. Since these calming chews are formulated from entirely natural ingredients, they are safe to be given to dogs frequently. However, an ingredient tolerated by one dog might not be as tolerable for another as no two dogs are the same. Therefore, consult your veterinarian before giving any supplement to get an accurate dosage and type of calming supplement to suit your pet.

What Age Does a Dog Start to Calm Down?
Answer

Puppies tend to have excessive energy and a tendency to be attention seekers, which results in hyperactive behavior. Most dogs start to calm down around the age of six to nine months. And by the time the dog reaches full maturity, which is between one and two years of age, the hyperactive puppy energy should become a thing of the past. Moreover, measures like obedience training and calming supplement also help calm down an over-excited puppy.

What Does Anxiety Look Like in Dogs?
Answer

Sometimes a seemingly normal behavior can be a sign of anxiety in your dog, and it's best not to dismiss anything normal yet out of place, like not eating for some time. Some of the common signs of anxiety in dogs include barking or howling when alone, panting or pacing even when the weather is cool, shivering, quivering, digging, destroying furniture, self-harm, not eating, and frequently urinating. Some of the more subtle signs include lip licking, lifting a paw, looking away, and showing whites of the eyes.
