We used this as directed for 60 days. after 2 months, we have not seen any improvement
Did not work at all, total waste of money. Recommended by trainer whom we also fired.
I used these for my black lab. She's about 90 lbs. She's afraid of storms. 2 of them really took the edge off. It didn't require for her to be on it weeks to tytrate. She wasn't completely out of it either. I highly recommend them. Also my friend gives them to her horses for anxiety.
This product did not have any visible effect on my dog after 8 whole weeks on it; he has had terrible general anxiety and separation anxiety since he came to us as a young pup. He is a nervous type with high energy. I have tried tons of products of all kinds, as well as services like acupuncture and chiropractic, also to no avail on the anxiety (the chiropractic did certainly help with spinal adjustments, though!) I believe it's mostly genetic cause as the father was a mess. I sure do wish I could find something that actually really would help! However, I still gave this product a 3-star rating even though it didn't work for my dog, because it is a very fresh, good-smelling tablet that is received just like a treat, and it is extremely easy to break in half when your dog needs a dosage oft that size.
I purchased this item for my 20 lb cat for his anxiety. Unfortunately, these pills are like a human sized vitamin and no matter what I tried, there is no way a cat will take these. A large dog, yes. A cat... not a chance.
This has been life changing for my two year old Australian Shepherd with socialization issues, anxiety, and separation anxiety (all due to a rehoming situation). I especially love this product because my girl is still herself and I don't have to put her on a prescription. This is not a miracle pill that will fix all of your dogs problems, you as a pet owner ALSO need to put in some work with your dog. I combine this with CBD twice daily, group training classes twice a week, a balanced raw diet, love, proper socialization, and proper mental and physical simulation. If you are wondering how to get your dog to eat that huge pill, shove it in the back of their mouths (as far as you can go) and close their mouths pointing their nose to the ceiling. Your dog WILL have to swallow it. I give my girl a treat and a meal afterwards. She always looks forward to getting her Calm Shen twice a day.
I am totally sold on this product! My 12 yo hardly noticed storms yesterday where previously she’d be trembling & drooling.
My little girl came to me with high anxiety and difficult to work with. Based on recommendation I tried this product and am very pleased with its effect on her. Not groggy, just relaxed and calm which is helping her become a part of my dog family. Would recommend at least trying this product and being consistent. I ordered pills which I am crushing them and putting on her food. She has no problem with the taste. Next time I will order powder. I am also going to try Herbsmith July Third which is recommended by the company for short term anxiety stress. Calm Shen may not have an immediate effect on some dogs indications are more long term. Company says they can be used together.
We have a dog who is a bit hyper and I thought these might help keep him calm in new situations. He's been taking it for about 2 weeks and it doesn't seem to be having any affect at all.
We started our dog on the smaller bottle and he did really well on it. So we opted to purchase the larger bottle this time around. It seems like it helps him the same way as the smaller bottle, although the product itself seems slightly different. It's possible because its all natural stuff so its not going to be the same every time but so far so good. We are going to continue to use these until he can be on his own and be calm.
