It worked for my 3 month old Dalmatian puppy. Dalmatians are known for having super high energy, combine that with being a puppy. I gave her one and within an hour she fell a sleep. I even picked her up and didn’t even move. I freaked out for a bit. But then she wiggled, then got a good rest and then woke up. I will only be giving her these on special occasions. Like long car rides, or when I really REALLY need a break. I feel bad drugging her. But they definitely work.
Our 3.5-year-old, 75 lb, male neutered Boxer was acting more anxious about noises and movements outside. Cleared by the vet, we decided to try something non-prescription (he isn't on any meds aside from Heartguard). These only made him thirsty and sleep deeper when he would have normally been asleep anyway. He does LOVE the taste and they smell like some pretty decent jerky but they are too expensive for simple treats. Our pup drank extra bowls of water, even on half doses, that led to more outdoor trips and he kept smacking his lips like he had cotton mouth. We tried another variety with similar ingredients and the exact same results (if you see another similar review - this is why).
These bites did little for Reily's anxiety except make her sleepy. Started with small dose as suggested, even though they had little to no effect. Progressed stronger but they only made her sleepy. Did not make her calmer in social meetings or attempting to go for walks.
I love this product for my scary cat DOGS... both of my dogs have such a problem with thunder and lighting ... this really takes the edge off
I have a high energy GSP and I give these to him in the evening to get him to chill and get ready for bed. Takes about an hour to kick in but he's ready to lay down after having these calming bites.
I got these for my small dog,because with wind and storms he barks alot. Theses treats calmed him down alot. Best treats I've found that really work.
My two dogs LOVE these. One has bad anxiety and the other I suspect has some type of hormonal issue so I give him these to help his cortisol levels. So far, so good. Both are doing great
This product worked great for my little 14 year old Yorkie. He has lost his sight in his older age and grooming has become a huge stressor for the little guy. I gave him one chew an hour before his appointment as directed and he was so much calmer for his grooming. It made the whole process easier on him and my wonderful groomer.
I tried calming bites for about 2 weeks. My dog really liked them, but I didn't notice any improvement in her anxiety.
I think we have the most hyper dog when it comes to bedtime. She won't settle down and she keeps everyone awake with her barking. I've been giving her Zesty Paws about 9:00 p.m. and it works by 10: 00 p.m. she is sitting at the gate in the hallway waiting to go to bed. I use the advanced for behavior. Belle Bell is 6 years old this Christmas and she weighs 70 something pounds. She's been on a diet and I haven't weighed her lately. She is a loving handful.
