Composure Liquid is recommended for dogs and cats exposed to increased environmental stressors. It is an advanced formula that contains a combination of factors, not found in other calming formulas that help reduce behavioral problems associated with stressful situations.
It combines L-Theanine (Suntheanine® Brand), Thiamin (B 1), Lecithin (from soy), and a calming Decapepetide (Lactium® Brand) from milk protein hydrolystate, which all address stress and calming. T hiamin (Vitamin B 1) specifically has been shown to affect the central nervous system to help calm and sooth anxious animals . This formula uses the Suntheanine® brand L-Theanine, which has extensive research and documentation, over 45 studies, that suggest it is helpful in the area of reducing stress and anxiety. Lecithin is calming to the nervous system. The Calming Decapeptide (Lactium® Brand) is isolated from the milk protein casein and is known for its calming effects.
I have a herding dog who thinks he always needs to be on duty. He gets composure liquid twice a day and he can relax enough to sleep through the night. It does a good job of relieving anxiety with out changing personality or energy level. I would recommend it for any one who has a dog under stress.
don't waste your money by marah from Manitowoc, WI05/11/2010
I bought this after having problems with my male cat urinating in the house to what the vet determined to be stress related to some remodeling we have been doing. He was checked for a bacterial infection which was negative. He also has had previous surgery removing his penile opening and re-routing it, so that he essentially has the organs of a female--due to repeated urinary tract infections which resulted in complete blockage(which can be fatal). He is a very timid and shy cat, and does not do well under stressfull situations. My vet recommended the feliway products along with something like this to calm him. I do use the feliway--which seems to help--but cannot get him to eat the food I put this in. Have been trying for over a week now, cats have very sensitive noses & can smell things we can't. They know when something is in their food that has not been there before. No matter what I did--he will not eat it with this in, and it's bad enough, with him being on special food for the urinary tract infections. If there's anybody out there that knows of something that would help, I'd sure love to hear about it.
So Far So Good by groendog from Illinoi05/14/2011
My dog has the nervous system of a pursued gazelle when storms arrive. We have a shirt to put on him and have tried benadryl and rescue remedy and several others. He cannot have sedatives because of sensitivity to them. This was recommended by my Veterinarian and so far is the only thing that seems to work at all. It is not a cure but it does seem to calm him down enough that I can work with him to relax him more during thunderstorms.
