Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent, Affordable Long-Term Solution to Stress This is the kind of product that works well OVER TIME. If you're looking for something to calm your pet down during on rare occasions (like fireworks, thunder, etc.), then this is not the product you are looking for. If your pet is showing symptoms of chronic stress (frequent vomiting, anxiety, etc.), these will definitely help. I have three cats who didn't grow up together and didn't get along at all. One of them is so anxious that she would scream (a cat-scream) at the other cats if they happened to be in the room that she wanted to be in. It was STRESSFUL. We tried calming collars, pheromone room sprays, plug-in calming diffusers, essential oils, separate feeding areas, separate litter boxes, basically you get the idea - just name it and we tried it. But STILL the cats were overwhelmed with anxiety! Finally I asked someone at a Petco near me house for a recommendation. The team member directed me to try this product over a melatonin product because it sounded like these cats needed a reliable long-term solution. So after trying this product for three days, every one of our three cats was visibly less anxious. After just two weeks - hold on to your hats! - these three mortal enemies began snuggling with us together on the loveseat, inches apart from each other. Sleeping. Not screaming. SLEEPING. I'm not exaggerating, it was a freakin' miracle. So these really do work, I promise! You just have to be patient and hang in there for a couple weeks. Give your pet(s) the recommended daily dosage and watch how their behavior changes. All three of my cats are 10-11 lbs, so one chew a day will suffice for each of them. I have a relative who tried this with her cat, who is around 19 lbs. Like me, she had tried pretty much everything else under the sun. Nothing was helping her cat and they were at the point where they had to consider the possibility of re-homing kitty. She took my recommendation and tried these with her cat. One chew didn't seem to have much of an affect, so after a few days she began giving her cat two chews a day - one in the morning and one at night. She said that she was surprised that it really did work and relieved that kitty can now enjoy staying with her family. Yay! The price is also pretty reasonable, considering it's basically chicken flavored FAIRY MAGIC. I actually don't know what all is in it, but now my cats are friends (or at least tolerate each other well), so I'm not complaining! Also, I must say that I'm not a veterinarian and I have no incentives - financial or otherwise - to promote this product or brand, so my recommendation is purely consumer-based.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product Got this product for my pit mix, had her on Prozac to help with her separation anxiety. I'm talking about pulling electrical sockets out of the walls and even destroyed her cage I tried keeping her in, but she stayed so doped up I tried these and what a difference. Just one chew a day and she out in the house now when I'm gone. I still get that little wine of (please don't leave) but she stays calm and nothing gets destroyed anymore.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works fantastic Been using this for about a year now. My dog was having complete breakdowns and would just attack the other dogs or just bite me out of the blue. He even got me on my face. Tried regular drugs but just made him sleep. These have made him do a 180. He has small outbursts from time to time but on average he is my little angel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PRODUCT WORKS!!! THIS PRODUCT WORKS! Sadly you'll see poor reviews on different sites by people who bought it to control behavior. It's NOT INTENDED TO FIX BEHAVIORAL ISSUES! It's intended to help with ANXIETY!!!! And it WORKS! Got it for my pit bull who is terrified of thunder and fireworks..... this product works exactly as intended! I will never let him run out, especially on July 4th!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for my pup We gave her the recommended amount before new years eve fireworks year and she was incredibly patient about them, when she usually cowers under the table and pees herself. A huge change from 4th of July. She just brushed it off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked amazing We have had our cat 12 years, recently we a baby that is in the nicu 2 hours away from us. We now have a friend coming over 3 times a day to watch him while we are gone which stressed him out to the point of horrible diahrrea all over the house and himself. After a visit to the vet and blood work done we came to the conclusion it was all duemo to stress of us being gone. The vet recommend these and he has not had one accident since!! He's been the sweetest, calmest cat!! I definitely recommend these to anyone with a anxiety ridden animal!

Questions

Is one chew a day safe for a 6 lb toy poodle?  I know it says one chew for a dog up to 50 lbs. but I want to make sure this is safe for such a small dog.  0-50 lbs is quite a large weight range.  Thank you.

Asked by: Stephanie17
One chew would be fine for your furry baby.

Is this harmful to a puppy (aged 6mo or over)?  My question relates to the ingredients not necessarily what dose as I know it must be administered according to weight.  I'd like to know if this is safe for a puppy whose system is still developing.  Thx.

Yes. This product is safe for a 6 month old puppy.

Can I give to a 5 month old 20 lb. puppy? Is there another product if not? 

Asked by: Tim63
VetriScience does make Composure Mini Chews which is labeled for cats and dogs under 25 pounds. I just checked the ingredients and they are identical to those in the Composure Chews for Cats so you can go ahead and purchase the cat product to use on your little dog.

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
  • Available for cats and dogs of all weights

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.
