Here at Nourishing Insights looking after animals is just as important as people. Did you know that we stock a variety of products to support your four legged friends health needs?
We discovered the ranges when we were looking for something to support the family dog Penny who is 15 and still going strong! Sadly Penny has been blind for many years but she hasn’t let it get the better of her. Recently though she has become a little more distressed and gets anxious when we leave the house. Thankfully we found a natural solution in CALM from Higher Nature’s Pets range. This powdered formula suitable for dogs and cats can be easily added to food making administration straight forward. CALM contains Theanine to increase feelings of calm, Tryptophan helps reduce anxiety and improves sleep and Magnesium which is a natural relaxant. (To read more about the benefits of magnesium click here.)
There are many reasons why our pets may feel anxious including:
But there are products out there to support them. In addition to CALM we also stock Lamberts Dog Calming Tablets. These beef and liver flavour tablets contain:
Penny has greatly benefited from taking a supplement as she is much less anxious and is no longer waking distressed in the night.
Other ways of reducing anxiety in dogs include diffusing chamomile and lavender. In a study by Graham et al, “Dogs spent more time resting and less time moving upon exposure to lavender and chamomile than any of the other olfactory stimuli.” Suggesting that it can have a calming effect.
Playing music can also reduce anxiety in dogs. A 2012 study showed that kennelled dogs who listened to classical music spent more time sleeping and less time barking or crying compared to those who listened to heavy metal or no music at all.
