With all the talk of surgeries and infections and stressful travel for our pets recently, it might be hand to know that there are some products on the market that can help to reduce pet anxiety. They’re known generally as pet “calmers,” and all the good ones are made from natural, herbal sources.
Some pet owners may be hesitant to jump straight to the medications to achieve a relaxed pet, but as stated, most of these “calmers” are all herbal, have absolutely no side effects, and there’s no risk of overdose. So, if you’re willing to give it a try, you could end up with a pet much more amenable to travel or a pet who feels less anxious after surgery. Not a bad result.
There are several kinds to choose from. Some are administered in pill or powder form, while others can be applied right on your pet’s gums with an eyedropper. Whatever is easiest for your pet to swallow is the way to go. They’re already stressed, after all, so no need to make things worse for them.
Pet calmers aren’t really new, but many pet owners may not have heard of them because of how infrequently they are needed. But in your pet’s hour of need, they can be a godsend.
