Make anxious situations more pleasurable with a new veterinary supplement, CALMEX®.
We would recommend CALMEX® in situations such as if your dog is nervous coming to the vets, stressed on car journeys, suffers from separation anxiety or noise phobias, including fireworks. Or to make the potentially stressful experience of going into kennels -a happier, more relaxed one.
CALMEX® is a unique combination of two amino acids, a psychoactive plant extract and B-vitamins. The amino acids, L- Theanine and L-Tryptophan (a serotonin precursor) reduces fearful and anxious behaviour, calms the ‘fight or flight’ response, and decreases the dogs stress response. The plant extract, Piper Methysticum, reduces anxiety, and has sedative and muscle relaxant effects. B Vitamins are essential to maintain function of the nervous system.

What Else Can I Do?
There are a number of measures you can take that can reduce your dog’s anxiety levels.
Lots of owners find it useful to use a combination of: Behavioural techniques Environmental changes Supplements
Try to work out what it is exactly that your dog is afraid of and then speak to your vet for guidance on what could make a difference long term.
Alongside this, you could try some of the following techniques.
It is important to remember that managing behavioural issues can take a long time and patience, so do not lose heart if the problems do not disappear immediately.
The following could help your dog during fireworks, or other celebrations with loud noises:
Make a den – Many dogs have a favourite place to go and hide, identify where they like to go in your house and make sure they have access to it.
You could also build a den for your pet to go, choose somewhere warm and away from the windows and create a safe cosy hideout with a comfy bed and access to water.
Background noise – Play music to try to distract them, but be careful that you do not cause your dog to associate that music with the fear.
Avoid rewards – When your dog looks scared, it’s only natural that you would want to comfort them, but unfortunately this can make the matter worse.
By fussing your pet when they’re scared, you reward their fearful behaviour with lots of attention. Instead stay calm, don’t show them more attention than normal when they are scared and focus on giving them lots of attention when they’ve calmed down again.
Be cheerful – Be a good role model to them.
If you can be with your dog when they encounter the stressful situation, ignore whatever it is that the dog is fearful of; you could even whistle or sing to show how unaffected you are!
Exercise – If possible, take your dog out for a walk to tire them out before they encounter the stressful situation.
