Earth MD Calming aid is a blend of herbs that aid in relieving anxiety and encouraging rest. Great for separation anxiety, stress from moving, obsessive itching and to encourage better sleep.
Earth MD developed Calming Aid for pets that have high anxiety, especially in certain scenarios. This supplement will not fix hyper and will not make your pet perfectly calm, but it helps them deal with symptoms of stress and anxiety. For those of you with high energy dogs, there is no better remedy for crazy hyperactive pets than exercise! Below are the ingredients in the Earth MD Calming Aid supplement and what they do to help induce a calm state.
Chamomile is one of the most common teas used for helping with sleep and anxiety. It has been shown to help people with anxiety disorders, as well as reduce aggressive behaviour. This is important, for example, for a pet going for a vet visit. Many pets get fear aggressive and chamomile may help them deal with their fear. Chamomile does this by reducing the production of cortisol, a stress hormone. Cortisol acts like the body’s alarm system. Cortisol, released from the adrenal glands on your kidneys, is what induces this bodily response: racing heart, elevated mood, and even indigestion. This also happens to pets when they are taken to places they find unpleasant. Chamomile can help reduce this response by inhibiting cortisol production.
Ginseng also reduces cortisol and corticosteroids in the blood in general in order to reduce stress on the body.
Echinacea has also been shown to be anxiolytic (anxiety reducing) without affecting locomotor skills.
Valerian Root is an effective little root at calming the nerves. Essentially, it is a mild form of sedation. Many people drink valerian tea to help them sleep, which can work well with dogs as well.
