Lick's Calming Aid (Zen)...thoughts?
Morning everyone. Yesterday, I went to Petsmart to get Max a new walking harness. There was a rep in there giving away samples of Lick's pill-free calming aid called Zen. It's a holistic gel substance instead of pill and apparently they make gels for joint health, etc.
Anyways, I almost never have any interest in the products the reps are allowing us to sample. However, I have a little interest in this one, but I'm always so nervous about giving Max something new.
I should mention, I want my dog to be a dog, and I'm not really interested in giving Max "meds" to calm him down. The only reason I'm thinking about it temporarily is our living situation. We're closing on a house next week but had to be out of our old house last week. Long story short, it was either move in with the parents (yay! not) or live on the streets. Haha. But Max has been CRAZY hyper at my parent's place. They have a mini Yorkie (or as I call it, a "rat") and he acts completely different than he did at our home. I would love for him to calm down until we can be at our new place with just us.
Here's the ingredients. I'd love some input to what you all thought:
Organic Eleuthero root...50mg
Organic Ashwagandha root...30mg
This is per packet of the gel. I think it's intended more for when dogs are under stress, but I figured it may calm him down a little bit while we are here. Seem safe to you?
