Some of you may have read about my dog that I had for 15 year recently having to be put to sleep. I know how much I miss her and so do the kids. I started noticing Chase, our 6 year old sheltie was acting different. He is normally pretty calm and will sit as close to me as he can. I just figured it was because he also was missing Velvet.
Now he is constantly wanting attention. Of course I give in as much as I can but it is way beyond that. He is having accidents in the house. Because this is something I cannot stand I have to put him outside in the fenced in yard at night when I am unable to watch him closely.
I was telling a friend about what was happening and she suggested that I try VetriScience® Laboratories Composure™ Chews. I love my dog so I was willing to try almost anything. Since I wanted to learn more before I gave it to them I went to their website.
They describe Composure as a calming formula providing C3™ Calming Complex, L-Theanine (Suntheanine® brand) and COMPOSURE Thiamine to support balanced behavior. It looked like something I really wanted to try. I wrote to the company and was able to receive a sample so I could write about the product.
I do not try to understand why or how this helps. The minute I received this I started Jake on them to see what would change. This is what the package looks like.
The back gives you directions of how many to give to your dog by the dog’s weight. Jake only needed 1 per day.
This is what they look like. These are just about 1 inch long, so pretty small.
It is really hard to get a picture and try to give him a treat. He is so careful, he would rather I drop it on the floor than take a chance on hurting me or anyone else. But I did get him to grab this from me. He ate it right down and came back wanting more. Since I was not sure how his body would react I just gave him the one.
So it has been about 2 weeks and he has not been sick or anything bad from these treats. I have noticed he is not constantly wanting attention now. He stopped jumping on me to get attention and now lays by the door, next to my desk, just in case I want to call him over! Plus, and this is big to me, the accidents have stopped.
The kids in our subdivision have been setting off fireworks almost every night, and even more on the weekends. Well Jake has always been nervous when they start. I pet him, talk to him, to try to comfort him. Nothing really works and it really makes him anxious and nervous.
Well since starting on VetriScience® Laboratories Composure™ Chews he is not jumping up going in circles and barking as each firework goes off. He perks his ears but he is not as upset as he use to be. I wish I had this a long time ago because Velvet, the dog I had to put to sleep, was even worse than Jake.
So now Jake takes his daily chew to help him be more comfortable in more areas than even I will probably notice.
They offer other varieties and they have this available for cats also.
