Anxiety Blend for dogs and cats is an herbal remedy that benefits animals suffering with stress and anxiety. This herbal formula works to promote a more relaxed, less anxious state while also helping to limit the negative health effects associated with stress. We don't just try to medicate your pet with this formula, but instead provide relaxing herbal nerve tonics and adaptogens that are beneficial and safe to provide to your dog or cat on a daily basis.
Our Anxiety Blend is formulated by a certified Master Herbalist and features USDA organic herbs like ashwagandha root, oatstraw, chamomile and passion flower along with other herbs that work synergistically together to provide relief from anxiety while toning the nervous system and tonifying the adrenal glands.
This is a formula developed to be used every day and increased if necessary during stressful events such as vet visits, thunderstorms or fireworks. No other anxiety formula is as complete, effective or beneficial to the health of anxious pets as this one!
✓ Organic Herbs
Our formula contains certified USDA organic herbs. Research shows organic herbs have higher amounts of important nutrients as opposed to conventionally raised plants. Organic farming methods are also better for the environment and of course do not have the levels of residual pesticides that conventionally grown herbs can have. We also do not use wild crafted herbs in our formulas as this practice can damage wild populations of herbs and you do not necessarily know where the herbs are coming from or how they've been grown. Instead, we prefer to be on the safe side and only obtain herbs from USDA certified organic farms.
✓ Natural Ingredients
Natural ingredients are going to be gentler on your animal's body when compared to synthetic chemical ingredients or medications. The proper natural constituents are able to provide the body with what it needs to heal and get better. This is in direct contrast to synthetic ingredients or medications that can be especially hard on the liver and kidneys. Medications are also designed to have a symptom suppressing action in line with the principles of allopathic medicine which is to create a diagnoses and then use drugs to suppress symptoms. Using this course of action can never result in true healing and is not really meant to.
✓ Alcohol-Free Tincture with ORGANIC Vegetable Glycerin for Animals
Our blend is formulated by a special process using low heat and organic vegetable glycerin. Tinctures are concentrated forms of a plant's constituents that are readily absorbed and utilized by your pet's body. Because your pet may not like the taste of alcohol, we use vegetable glycerin which gives our tinctures a sweet taste your animals will like. Vegetable glycerin is a carbohydrate but is metabolized differently than sugar and does not raise blood sugar levels. It is also an efficient menstruum which extracts valuable constituents from plants and makes them readily available to the body. In addition, we take the extra time and effort to use a low heat process that extracts many more constituents than just soaking in glycerin alone as is done by most other herbal companies. And, of course, the use of organic vegetable glycerin ensures your pet avoids genetically modified ingredients and herbicides in their natural medicine.
✓ Uses only Human Grade Ingredients
Our products are manufactured using human grade ingredients. In the pet industry this is far from the rule as many companies use pet quality ingredients, those considered "not fit for human consumption".
✓ Uses Fresh, High Quality Ingredients
We purchase our ingredients from some of the most highly regarded companies in their respective fields so you and your animals are ensured the finest quality supplements. In addition, we purchase in small quantities to make sure the products we provide to you are fresh and bursting with important nutrients. This is in direct contrast to many other products on the market that can spend a year or longer sitting in non-climate controlled warehouses before they even get to you.

About the Organic Herbs in This Formula
Chamomile Flowers - One of the most well known medicinal plants. This herb's gentle, relaxing qualities benefit both the nervous and digestive systems.
Oatstraw - Among the best of the nerve tonics, the mucilaginous qualities will help to strengthen the myelin sheath that protects nerve fibers. This herb also promotes an increase in overall health and vitality.
Skullcap Herb - A versatile nervine that is often recommended for nervous system disorders such as stress, insomnia and nervous exhaustion.
Ashwagandha Root - One of our favorite adaptogens that will work to strengthen the overall vitality of an animal and their body's resistance to stress.
Passionflower Herb - A calming and relaxing herb that has a long history of use for stress, anxiety and depression especially when combined with St. John's Wort.
St. John’s Wort Herb - Popular for lifting the spirits, this herb can help to relieve the symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression.
Valerian Root - There are few more highly regarded herbs for stress, insomnia and other nervous system disorders. Safe and effective, this herb is not to be confused with the drug valium and will not produce the extreme effects of that drug.
Provide 1 ml per 25 lbs 2 - 3 times per day. May be squirted directly in the mouth, placed in a small amount of favorite food (goat milk yogurt works well) or added to meals. It is desirable to provide herbal remedies such as this away from meals for better absorption when possible.
You may safely use up to 4 mls per 25 lbs 2 - 3 times daily for a short period of time depending on the severity of your animal's condition. As your animal's condition improves slowly decrease dosage to minimum effective dosage. Contact us if you have any questions.
You may also give extra doses before or during veterinary visits, thunderstorms or fireworks to help with the extra stress placed on your dog or cat. Try to limit total doses to 8 per day due to special circumstances. It is always best to try to provide these extra doses before your pet goes into his/her anxious state, meaning starting before the thunderstorm as opposed to when it is in progress will see better results.
To apply directly in mouth just pull out lower lip at back of mouth and squirt in desired amount. Don't tilt head back and squirt down throat or your pet may breath some in. Wipe off dropper before placing back in container. If your animal coughs afterwards it is a sign they are breathing some in and it may be best to place in food in the future.
Long Term Use: After the first two - four weeks when your animal's condition stabilizes or improves begin to use on a schedule of 5 days on and 2 days off as long as your animal's condition allows this schedule without deterioration.
We recommend you purchase enough for at least 2 - 4 weeks to get an idea if this remedy will work for your animal. Use the chart below as a guide.
