Thiamine for Dogs Anxiety - How Does It Work?

Thiamine works by helping to maintain nerve function.

It's thought to work by boosting levels of gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA), a naturally occurring amino acid. GABA helps to keep nerves from firing too quickly and may have a calming effect.

Therefore, thiamine may help to ease symptoms of anxiety in dogs.Ā 

If your dog is showing signs of anxiety, you may be wondering if thiamine can help ease their symptoms.

Overall, pet owners report that it has helped their dog. Additionally, because thiamine is a water soluble vitamin and any excess is excreted in urine, it's very unlikely that your dog could overdose on it.

If you think your dog may benefit from a thiamine supplement, give it a shot and see if it's right for your dog.
