Calming Tablets for Dogs Scared of Fireworks
In the run-up to Fireworks Night, dog owners with noise sensitive or anxious dogs should start to use a natural dog calmer from mid October right the way through to mid November to ensure maximum effect. The advantage of these natural calmers is they won’t leave your dog in a zombie like state as stronger solutions may do but they do help your dog to cope with their extreme stress.
Fireworks Special includes two products: Homeopathic Noise Remedy (a 4 week course of tablets) and herbal liquid, Calm Xtra 30ml. The two products work together to calm noise sensitive dogs. We gave this combination of homeopathy and herbal tincture to our noise sensitive collie, Teddy. Teddy's owners live in the countryside and during the Autumn the sound of gun shot is a common occurrence. Teddy will often run home while on a walk if she hears gun shot. Fireworks night is therefore very stressful for her and she will cower behind the sofa when she hears the bangs. Teddy's owners started giving Teddy one Noise Remedy tablet per day from mid-October. Since she is especially noise sensitive they also gave her a few drops of Calm Xtra on a treat once daily. On Fireworks Night itself or when her owners knew that a loud event was going to take place she was given an additional dose of Calm Xtra 30 minutes beforehand. Calm Xtra is perfect as it works really quickly - usually within 30 minutes. The improvement in Teddy was tremendous and she is much calmer and happier now - even when she hears gunshot on a walk.
We have been selling the homeopathic part of this fabulous combination for over 25 years. It was first featured in the Mail on Sunday by journalist Beverley Cuddy over 25 years ago. It is only available from Canine Natural Cures and was created by our founder, Frances Gavin, herself.
CalmXtra is a herbal tincture. It contains herbal tinctures of: Valerian, Oat, Skullcap, Passionflower, Wild Lettuce and Jamaican Dogwood. We have many happy customers who buy this product regularly. I personally witnessed its effect when I gave it to a friend whose dog, Luna, would cower every time a visitor came to the door. We gave CalmXtra to Luna 30 minutes before a visitor's arrival and the effect was remarkable. Luna remained curled up on her cushion when the visitor arrived. My friend was amazed by the change in her dog's behaviour.
