Chamomile is a type of flower that has been used for centuries as a natural remedy for various ailments.

When given to dogs, chamomile can help to reduce separation anxiety and promote relaxation.

In recent years, chamomile has become popular as a way to reduce stress in dogs. Chamomile contains a compound called apigenin, which has been shown to have calming effects.

That's why we've included them in our calming treats. You can also give your dog chamomile tea, but it may be difficult to dose correctly.

It is important to note that chamomile should not be given to dogs with allergies to pollen or Ragweed.

If you are unsure whether your dog is allergic, it is best to consult with a veterinarian before giving them chamomile.

  1. Valerian Root

Valerian is a herb that has been used for centuries to promote calmness and sleep.

It works by increasing levels of gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) in the brain, which helps to reduce anxiety. Which makes this herb great during exposure to loud noises like parties and fireworks.

Organic valerian root is safe for most dogs, but it's always a good idea to talk to your veterinarian before giving it a try.

If you do decide to give your dog organic valerian root, start with a small dose and increase gradually as needed.

Our calming treats include a small dose of valerian root.
