What is Composure Bite-Sized Chews?

When you can't get your pet to sit through yoga classes or meditation sessions, Composure Bite-Sized Chews can help. Composure Bite-Sized Chews are veterinarian-approved and used to help calm pets that are prone to anxiety, nervousness, hyperactivity or those that tend to act out when in a stressful environment. Your pets will love the chicken liver flavor, and even those with sensitive teeth should be able to handle the soft, fish-shaped chews (for cats) or bone-shaped chews (for dogs). You can give your pet 1 chew a day for ongoing support, or you can keep them on hand and give one only as needed during stressful times. Think of Composure Bite-Sized Chews as a triple cocktail of stress management and relaxation.

For:

Cats and Dogs

Benefits:
  • Helps alleviate anxiety, hyperactivity, and stress-related behavior problems without affecting your pet's personality or activity level (in other words, your cat or dog won't be "zoned out")
  • Contains 3 active ingredients that work together to help calm and relax your pet and reduce the effects of stress, including L-Theanine, which is also found in green tea
  • Helps the body produce Dopamine, which can elevate your pet's mood naturally
  • During times of stress, it is safe to double or triple the dose as needed
  • The chews come in a convenient resealable pouch for easy storage
How it Works:

The combination of the three active ingredients in Composure Bite-Sized Chews work together to help alleviate stress-related behavior problems. C3™ (Colostrum Calming Complex) is created from colostrum proteins, which have been found to support cognitive functioning and stress reduction. Colostrum Calming Complex in the chews works in tandem with L-Theanine to promote relaxation and cognition in cats and dogs. And thiamine is added to the formula to help manage stress and reduce irritability. They are recommended for cats and dogs that may have separation anxiety, that run for cover every time you have company, or become moody after being introduced to a new family member and dogs that urinate in the house or cats that urinate outside of the litter box when you go on vacation, or leave you special "gifts" if you interrupt his or her routine. It also can also work for cats and dogs that become anxious or agitated when they go on car rides.

Cautions:

The chews are so tasty, your pet might mistake them for treats and try to eat the whole bag. To avoid accidental overdose, keep the chews out of reach of your pet. In case of overdose, contact your veterinarian immediately. Some cats may experience an adverse reactions to the chews, such as increased hyperactivity. If this should happen, you should discontinue use. If your pet's condition or behavior worsens or does not improve after giving Composure Bite-Sized Chews, discontinue use and consult with your veterinarian. Safe use in pregnant cats or dogs intended for breeding has not been proven. Keep out of reach of children.

Composure Bite-Sized Chews is rated 3.6923076923076925 out of 5 by 39.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't work. I have a small dog with separation anxiety and I've had him on these for about two weeks now with absolutely no results. I give them to him about an hour before I leave work and my roommates have said he immediately starts barking when I leave and continues to do so pretty much the entire day. This is extremely frustrating and I honestly don't know what else to try other than prescription medications. In short, these have absolutely no effect on my 5-10 lb. dog.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't help my dog I have a cock-a-poo male dog that has bad separation anxiety and I thought I would try this. I gave him one and then two, but it didn't seem to affect him, at all. I tried it several times, but no help. He is still anxious, especially when we leave to go to work, in the morning. I'm hoping I can find a better product. It might work for someone else's pet, but it didn't for mine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THANK YOU!! I have a German Shorthair that is afraid of anything and everything and storms are a heartbreaker for Misty. The Composure bites are WONDERFUL!!! #1 Misty LOVES them! Normally when we would give her something she would know it was some type of meds and would spit it out, but not these! #2 They work pretty fast...within 20-30 minutes. I bought 2 bags so I have plenty on hand. #3 She slept right through the HUGE thunderstorm we just had two days ago. Normally, she is freaking out trying to bust out of her kennel or the house. She used to get so scared she didn't know up from down, poor girl. #4 THESE ARE THE BEST!!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didnt work at all. I thought I would try this on my rescue feral cat we have had for 10 years. She has always been afraid of people in general. Will only come within arms distance for a scratch and then will retreat to a safe place. This medication did nothing for her. Tried one, and then two. She did like them as treats but that is all. Wish I could find something to relieve her fearfulness so we can show her how much she is loved.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't work at all I really had high hopes for this product. My yellow lab gets extremely excited when riding in a vehicle. I tripled the dose, as it advised to do in extreme situations and it did not even make a dent in my dogs anxiety. It did absolutely nothing. Very disappointed that for us it was just a waste of money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Appears to help calm. My cat is a little high strung, nervous around loud noises, and agitated in the evening (alzheimers? HA) This chew seems to mellow him out. He is a picky eater, but eats his 1 chew willingly, in the evening.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from monsoon storms Our Vet recommended these Composure Chews for our 11 year old Lhasa Apso, he is very afraid of the monsoon thunderstorms we get every summer here in Phoenix. We watch the news so we can give him two before the noise of the thunder and rain starts, it does help him a lot, we even give one to our 6 month old puppy, he is not afraid of the storm but it helps settle him down at the end of the day. I am so glad our Vet recommended these.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My dog says NO to these. Sorry I had to give this a bad review even tho it might be a great product. My Lhasa will not touch them. I've tried giving them to her straight from the bag, crushing them, and hiding them in other foods she likes all to no avail. She either won't touch it, or finds it and spits it out. I have one open bag and accidentally ordered a second one.

The dosage instructions  on your website don't include dogs under 25 pounds. I assume you can give these to dogs under 25 pounds?

Asked by: Kiwis mom
It is safe to give half of a tablet to your furry baby that is under 25 lbs.

We have an 8yr old English Setter who has always been excitable/fearful of new experiences. We rescued a Mau, also 8yrs old, who totally dominates the dog. He just looks at her, and she runs off. Can these chews help her?

How many chews for a 40 lb dog?

Asked by: Syd
1 chew for a 40lb dog. It does say it can be given up to two times daily or on an as-need basis and that it is safe to double or triple in times of increased stress. My dog is 98lbs and her dose is 3x but on storms I give her 9 and she just relaxes. She still walks around but doesn't even shake or hide.

Cat treats or dog treats for a 6 lb dog?

I know the dog treats are for dogs more than 25 lbs. I also know the cat treats are for cats less than 25 lbs. So, for my anxious 6 lb dog, is it okay to give the cat treat to her. The ingred are the same on your website. I hope so as I ordered the cat ones.

For long term use, best time to give?

My dog is a rescue, mix of chihuahua & terrier. At home she is a wonderful companion, calm & happy. Unless the doorbell rings, or someone gets too close to our lanai. But on walks all the terrier comes out & she becomes very hyper; barks at loud machinery, will attack any dog which she doesn't like (almost all in our community), that is if I didn't have a leash on her. Anyway, my vet recommended Composure, on a daily basis. When is the best time of day to give this? Morning, or is evening ok?
Asked by: Birdie
You can give it in the morning or evening, it should not make a difference. If you have more problems during the day with the pet interacting with other pets adn people, then try giving it in the morning.
