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
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.
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.

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.
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.
composure for cats
Rouge Pudder loves his Composure treats - helps when the Lawn mower gives him anxiety attacks !!
Unable to get cat to eat product
I was very disappointed in the product. My cat is a rescue and very anxious, except with me. I thought maybe this product would calm her down. The product was great price and I read the reviews. It started when I opened the package. What an odor? I figured ok, just opened package. I held out a chew to my cat. She took one sniff and took off running. I tried to crumble it into her food. She was able to pick all her food out and left the chew pieces. I could still smell the product in the entire room. Will be returning product. Hopeful I can find another product that will help...
I used these for my Shih-Tzu on for a long car trip because she gets very nervous and shakes and pants in the car. They worked wonderfully! There were short times during the trip that she panted, but for the vast majority, she was totally calm! And she wasn't loopy/lethargic, which was great. So glad to have found something that works! It was awful to watch her shake and pant so much in the car!
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.
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?

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.
I have a full breed japanese akita, hes 4 years old, hes a big teddy bear at home, but when we bring him to the kennel hes like a different dog, hes clearly not used too all the dogs there and it being so loud, he has servere anxiety disorder when he goes to the kennel, he ends up wrecking it sometimes, and gets very crazy. i was wondering if these treats will help calm him down while hes there, he weighs over 100 lbs so how many per day would i have to give him?
