CALMING SOFT CHEWS FOR DOGS
Does your dog go nuts when you leave them alone? Are they prone to bouncing off the walls like a super ball? Scared of loud noises and car rides? Luckily, you don’t have to live in anticipation of your dog’s manic bursts. HolistaPet makes calming chews specifically for twitchy, anxious dogs.
Whether they are dealing with separation anxiety, hyperactivity, or a phobia you can’t wrap your head around, our delicious, soothing chews can help your dog de-stress.
WHAT ARE CALMING CHEWS?
A calming chew is a soft treat designed to relax your dog. Our relaxing treats contain soothing, natural ingredients such as HEMP, organic chamomile, and L-tryptophan to help reduce your dog’s jitters and nervousness.
Even though there are plenty of soothing dog treats on the market, this treat offers a chewy texture that might be preferable for some dogs.
How Do Calming Treats Help Dogs?
Like people, dogs deal with anxiety, fear, and overstimulation. But unlike people, dogs can’t use words to express their distress. Dog anxiety often manifests in destructive behavior, like furniture shredding or excessive barking. Your dog may even get aggressive when in reality they’re just scared or overwhelmed.
Separation anxiety in dogs is one of the most frequent complaints and accounts for up to 40% of canine referrals to animal behavior practices. Thunderstorms, fireworks, and strangers can also trigger extreme fear reactions in your pet, leading to meltdowns that you may not be prepared for.
One study discovered a connection between stress and lifespan in dogs, so keeping your canine’s anxiety in check is key!
The active ingredients in our treats can help calm your dog, which in turn saves your house from destruction and your neighbor’s ears from assault. Most importantly, our calming treats may bring your dog some peace (which is what we really want when it comes down to it). We also offer HEMP infused dog treats for stress and anxiety relief!
WHAT IS IN HOLISTAPET’S CALMING SOFT CHEWS?
Our relaxing treats are specially formulated with natural compounds that put your dog’s mental health first. Each active ingredient plays a role in balancing and supporting the chemical activity in your dog’s brain.
L-tryptophan is an amino acid that your body needs to produce serotonin, a neurotransmitter vital for mood. Dogs that don’t get enough tryptophan are more prone to moodiness and aggression.
Broad Spectrum HEMP
Broad Spectrum Hemp contains many non-intoxicating cannabinoids that enhances your dog’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS helps regulate several essential functions like sleep, memory, mood, inflammation, digestion, and much more. Maintaining ECS health is pivotal.
Our HEMP comes from organic hemp, and all products undergo rigorous third-party testing to ensure their purity and potency.
Choline chloride is an essential building block of ceramides and phosphatidylcholine. Both of those compounds are essential for proper nerve signaling and brain function.
This compound fights anxiety in dogs (and people, too). Your dog’s body uses phosphatidylcholine to create acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter essential for mood and memory.
One of the best herbal remedies around, chamomile has been used for centuries for its calming effect. When faced with nerve-wracking circumstances, this herb can help ease your dog’s stress and anxiety.
HOW TO USE CALMING TREATS
Each treat contains 5mg of broad spectrum HEMP. “Broad spectrum” cannabidiol contains no THC whatsoever. You can give your dog calming treats as needed for their meltdowns or daily for a tasty snack or training reward. We recommend the following dosing guidelines:
SUGGESTED USE FOR PETS
- We recommend between 0.25 mg (regular serving) to 0.5 mg (strong serving) of HEMP per every 1 lb of bodyweight.
- REGULAR SERVING: 1 Treat (5mg) for every 20 lbs of body weight once to twice daily, or as needed.
- STRONG SERVING: 2 Treats (10mg) for every 20 lbs of body weight once to twice daily, or as needed.
If you want to use these calming bites to help your furry friend through a stressful situation, like a long car ride or fireworks show, we recommend giving them the chew an hour before the event. This way the effects will be in full effect by the time of the event.
You won’t have to worry about your dog getting loopy or “high” when they take these treats, although some mild side effects may occur in the first few initial uses (dry mouth, diarrhea, and/or drowsiness). These effects typically disappear once your dog adjusts to the dosage.
If your dog takes medication, it’s best to consult a vet before giving them these calming treats as HEMP can prolong the effects of some prescriptions.
How Long Does It Take For Calming Treats To Work?
Our calming treats should take effect in about 45 minutes to one hour, although the time may vary depending on your dog’s size and metabolism.
How Long Do The Effects Last?
Your canine friend can say goodbye to their nervousness for about 4-8 hours. The amount of HEMP consumed, your dog’s activity level, and weight influence the duration of effects.
Crushing dog anxiety isn’t the only thing these treats are good for! Since the treats have a doughy consistency, they’re easy for dogs to chew and swallow. If your dog is older (or has some dental issues), these treats won’t pose any trouble for their mouth.
These treats are darn tasty! Dogs can’t get enough of them. The chewy texture and savory flavor make them a hit with our four-legged friends. We think it’s something about the sweet potato that drives them nuts.
Did we mention that each ingredient has its own health benefits? Besides the anxiety-calming effects we mentioned, the treats contain chickpea flour and sweet potatoes. Chickpea flour is a fantastic source of protein while sweet potatoes are rich in fiber and antioxidants.
Plus, each treat has a pre-measured dosage of HEMP, so owners don’t have to worry about weighing and administering HEMP in its oil form! HolistaPet’s HEMP Calming Soft Chew for Dogs offers convenience, nutrition, and flavor all in one package!
