Green Dog Naturals & Anxiety Help?

Postby VogueVulture » Sun Mar 20, 2011 3:44 pm

Has anyone used Green Dog Naturals products? Your review?

Next would be calming aids, any good ones? I looked at Green Dog Naturals and Bach Rescue Remedy for Pets which got mixed reviews but 4 stars our of 29 reviews. Anything else you guys have used? (Separation Anxiety, only need sparingly but it has to work.)

You should first read the sticky in Behavior & Training on Separation Anxiety. Then work with a qualified trainer to help you work on this.

Rescue Remedy has never done anything for any of my dogs. I prefer Composure (Vetri-Science) and Melitonin.

Hmm, we have melatonin..maybe I'll ask the vet about that. I bookmarked that that post already and will work with her, no doubt about that. But I have appointments several times a month to which she may need to be home for, and an aid would be nice to use until she is fully independent on being crated alone.

Melatonin has worked for a few of my clients dogs as well in the past.

I used rescue remedy taking my wheaten through his Tdi, 11 years ago, to take the hyperactive edge off and it worked but that's the extent of my experience.

Lately with SA everyone has been encouraging DAPs. I'd look into them if I were you. I was about to try them but things have settled back down around here thankfully.

I'll probably get some for the move though, just to be safe.

..NM, got it to work.

I keep seeing Comfort Zone as a popular product. Might need to look into that here at PetSmart.
