    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).

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.

    Do not purchase for a cat!

    By Saint on Jan 7, 2021

    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.

    Recommended by a Rescue group

    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.

    Don't seem to have any affect

    By on

    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.

    So far so good

    By on

    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.

    Calm Shen works great

    This product has definitely made a difference with my fearful dog. It has made her less tense and she appears to have no adverse reactions to it.

    Herbsmith Calm Shen

    This is a wonderful product. It helps take the edge off easily aroused dogs and help calm nervous dogs so that both can manage more comfortably in stress provoking situations.
