Every dog is different, just like people. Some just can’t handle a lot of noise, being left home alone, or changes in their environment very well at all. I get that…
Heck, if I had known there are products out there like this, I could’ve used these many years ago….
No, I did NOT mean me, lol!
I meant for our dog, which suffered from severe separation anxiety when he was young!
These are NOT for us humans, BTW! Only for our beloved canine friends. *
Honestly, I’ve never tried these on my dogs since I haven’t found any of them to have anxiety issues to the point that I’d need something to calm them down, at least not anymore.
But, I do realize many dog owners do need help with their over-energetic, anxious dogs…remember, I went through that before…
Anyways, back to the point here…The Review!
The Composure Chews are highly recommended by MANY Dog owners on Amazon’s product reviews. The number of good reviews there is the reason I thought I’d check them out more.
After reading a lot of these reviews, I thought I’d write my own review in the hopes of helping you decide whether or not to use them for anxiety issues with your dog. So, again, I’m basing this on what other dog parent’s are saying and also the product information given from Vetri-Science.
What are Composure Bite-Sized Chews?
These chews will help your dog remain calm and relaxed during times that may have caused a lot of anxiety and stress for both of you.
These frightful situations may include fireworks, thunderstorms, car rides, trips to the vet or groomer, etc.
The chews shown above are also recommended for use with hyperactive dogs, nervous dogs, and dogs going through separation anxiety.
What Makes Them Work?
According to the information given by Vetri-Science these chews work by using three active ingredients. These are the C3 Colostrum Calming Complex, which are made from proteins, L-theanine (which is an amino acid and derivative of glutamic acid), and Thiamine (vitamin B1).
The C3 Colostrum and L-thanine are bioactive with your dog’s body and work with it to calm your dog down without it becoming drowsy or dopey. Thiamine is added since it has been found that dogs low in Thiamine are often confused, anxious, and may even have muscle weakness or spasms.
Thiamine also known as vitamin B1 is known to affect the nervous system and help to calm and soothe dogs.
- Thiamine (vitamin B1) – 134 mg
- C3 Colostrum Calming Complex – 22 mg
- L-Theanine (SunTheanine brand) – 21 mg
- Brewer’s yeast
- canola oil
- chicken liver flavor
- citric acid
- mixed tocopherols
- propionic acid
- proprietary blend (maltodextrin, sodium alginate & calcium sulfate)
- rosemary extract
- silicon dioxide
- soy lecithin
- vegetable oil.
That’s it….according to the ingredients list on the back of the bag that is what these chews contain.
- Easy to give – no mess
- Appears to work for most medium-large dogs with anxiety
- Non-prescripiton (I’d still ask your vet what he or she thinks)
- Easy to use weight chart to figure out how many to give according to dog’s size
- Can increase number of chews if needed (read directions on bag)
- Not quite sure where they’re made – only says where the Composure chews are distributed from which is Vermont, USA
- No guarantee they’ll work – but with every dog being different, that’s kind of a given
- Main ingredients appear to be natural, but not too sure what some of the inactive ingredients are made from such as the chicken liver flavor, mixed tocopherols, silicon dioxide, and the proprietary blend listed.
Overall, I’d give Vetri-Science Composure Bite-sized Chews a try if I found one of my dogs needed something to help them get through anxiety issues.
After all, over 600 reviews on Amazon and most of them being over 4 stars or more, I’d figure these a safe alternative to prescription medicine to at least try.
Hey, why not give them a try with your dog?
I’d think these much better than having your dog and you suffering through severe anxiety issues. These bite-sized chews help a lot of other dogs out there with no side effects or addiction to them either, at least as far as I’ve read and heard about them.
*Please NOTE!* Remember, do ask your veterinarian before trying these out on your dog. I’m not sure how these may react with other supplements, prescriptions, etc. that your dog may be taking or how it will affect any type of existing condition your dog may have.
I do hope you’ve enjoyed reading this review and if you have any questions, please feel free to ask!
