My girl Pearl has always been a nervous dog. You can read more about why here.
She was getting progressively worse over time, to the point where she was having full blown panic attacks. Simple things, like the sound of the microwave or a squeaky noise in the car would send her right over the edge. On more than a few occasions I thought she was going to have a heart attack because she was shaking and panting so bad.
I was contemplating going to the Vet and asking her to put Pearl on some sort of anxiety medication. But, as I am always trying to do things as naturally as possible, I started looking for alternatives before I took the dive into the heavy duty drugs.
That's when I stumbled across the Pet Naturals Calming Chews. I thought I would give them a try, not really expecting too much.
After only 4 days - one chew with breakfast - I noticed a huge difference in her overall demeanor and now that she has been taking them for almost 2 weeks, she's a much calmer dog.
She still alerts when she hears the noises but no more diving under the couch and shivering for 20 minutes. She loves the car and falls asleep when we drive, a huge difference I would say.
Does anyone have any other natural remedies to help calm a nervous dog?
