My 96 lb 12 year old dog used to claw at me, shake and pant heavily with eyes bulging whenever there was thunder. He'll still come to my side during a storm, but now he just curls up at my feet and rests comfortably. What a difference! I've also used it on my 6 month old pup when he's overly revved and it mellows him out too.
I have an American Bulldog that hates fireworks, storms and high winds. This seems to help tremendously. First product I have found that does work. Need larger bottles though. Now if I can just find a toy she can't destroy in 10 minutes.
Really Good Stuff
One of our german shepherd mixes has a very antsy personality and a lot of things will make her tremble, pace, pant and be very clingy to the point you can't walk without her tripping you. She likes this stuff and will even take it when she's having one of her "panic" attacks. This stuff works. She's much calmer a little while after taking these tablets. I've tried other products but they didn't work and she would never take them if she was already nervous. I agree with another reviewer - need larger bottles.
Does not compare
I was buying Tryptocalm and unfortunalely this product doesnt even compare or even for that matter it does nothing for the dog.
I cannot tell if this works or not. The two times I tried it I saw no effect.
A LIFE SAVER
by DONNA FROM NY04/06/2009
THESE ARE GREAT-WHEN WE HAVE SUMMER THUNDERSTORMS I RARELY GET ANY SLEEP WITH MY POOR GIRL PANTING AND PACING AND SHAKING-2 OF THESE (SHE IS A LAB DOBERMAN MIX) AND THE STORMS DON'T BOTHER HER A BIT SHE SLEEPS RIGHT THRU AND SO DO I !!!!

My Cocker Spaniel suffers from mild separation anxiety and I've been trying to find something to calm him down without resorting to chemical medication. TranQuil tabs have done the job amazingly well. Now I can go to work without worrying about Rumble howling and barking at 6 am and disturbing my neighbors.
I rescued a weimaraner from a horrible situation. Let's just say she's a wiredmaraner with separation anxiety like you wouldn't believe. I have a product called ultracalm and found no noticable help. I researched other products and thought I'd give this product a try because I thought the ingredients were the best.
Holy mackeral!!! This stuff is GREAT!!! Don't get me wrong- getting rid of the separation anxiety is still a work in progress- but now it CAN be worked on! No more frantic, manic behaviors overshadowing training.
These tablets helped our jack russell mix when we needed to board him. He gave the lady trouble going back into the kennel and after we started to use the tranquil tabs she no longer has to fight him and he doesn't growl like he use to. We will be ordering more of these since they really do work.
First time to use this product
by Cathy A.07/21/2009
I received this product in the mail yesterday just in time to try it as a severe thunderstorm moved through last night. My eldest dog that is normally scared and shaking during such a storm was MUCH more peaceful. The only sign of stress he exhibited during a VERY noisy storm was to cuddle up closer to me. There was no shaking, whining, or panting. I am amazed and very pleased.
5 stars for Tranquil-Tabs

These tabs have been way more effective than a prescription medication from our vet. Thanx, cvlu
TranQuil Tabs for Dogs
by Joyce & Chris05/28/2008
Works great and quick! We have an Akita/Husky mix which we adopted from the pound when he was 3 years old - we weren't really sure of his personality - come to find out - after our first summer season with him - he HATES thunderstorms - other products we tried in the past have not worked. I bought these to try this summer season - so far SOOOOOO good! He goes from panting, high energy pacing, and nervousness - to a much more relaxed state. He also likes the way they taste - so no struggles in getting them into his system.
This stuff works!
I have 2 dogs that I adopted from a rescue organization. These guys spent most of their lives in a terrible hoarding situation and had lived in constant fear for years. One had never lived in a house before and peed all over my home whenever I was gone. I finally broke down and bought a bottle of this stuff and give one tab to each of them with their breakfast and again with dinner. The peeing has stopped! They both seem much happier and calmer without being sedated ... it just takes the edge off their anxiety. I'm ordering more!
Work Pretty Well
A few of my dogs have anxiety with thunder storms (one of them tenses up even if it just rains), so I give them Tranquil Tabs and they help them to settle down and take a nap until the storms over. I have to use more tablets than the directions call for, but these work as well as other much more expensive products I have tried in the past, so it is difficult to complain!
Finally a product that works
I have a 3 yr old male dachshund whom goes nuts when we have thunderstorms. I have tried several other natural products but Tranquil Tabs has been a blessing and worked the best for him. I also give it to him before we have to take him somewhere in the car because he just shakes and crysso bad.
Fantastic product, really does work and I like the fact I don't feel like I am drugging my fur baby
Just Didn't Work For My Dogs
from Durham, NC07/25/2011
I purchased this product a few months ago, along with my other items, and it just didn't seem to have any real impact on my three small terriers' fear of thunderstorms. The ingredients sound very healthy, but in terms of calming, I didn't see the proof.
These pills are great! They're mild and my dog loves to chew them. He takes them very easily back into his kennel box and chews them up. After a few minutes, he stops all that pacing back and forth cause he's bored. I have a high energy Siberian Husky. He gets 4 walks a day but he could go for 4 more. I do not give it to him everyday. I only give it to him when the weather is bad and I can't take him out for all 4 of his walks and he gets a little nutty in the house. They work wonderfully. I definitely suggest people get them for their dogs.

TranQuil-Tabs have made our hysterical Jack Russell a pleasue. He has gone back to playing with the other dogs and taking naps.
Work Well for Storm Anxiety
by Nancy C. Dallas05/27/2008
We have seven dogs and one of them in particular has a good deal of anxiety when it storms (or even rains!). I give her a few TranquilTabs ahead of time if I know a storm is coming, or after it has already started. These pills work well to calm her down and make her drowsy, and they seem to be fairly palatable. A few of my dogs don't want to take them (due to the way they smell?), but the others are happy to get them! And it is a relief to me to be able to help them through their anxious times in such an easy and convenient way.
Description did not specify it was chewable tablets.

Got these for my daughter's puggle - really has helped!!!!!!!
by Dog Mom01/09/2012
Use it for thunderstorms, firecrackers, going to the vets. Doesn't like the taste - have to put it in food, like a piece of cheese or coat with something.
Do not buy!
from Queens, New York09/30/2010
This product is not worthy. It did not do anything to my dog. I did not notice any changes in his hyperactive behavior.
from Portland, OR09/18/2011
My Cadie, I'm her 5th home, 4th owner, was terrified of lightning & thunder .... this product works ... it only got better using it even after the storm was in progress. I no longer need to use the product as often but like to have it on hand, just in case.
What a great product. Our 14 year old female dog was having major anxiety issues at night when it was time to sleep. She would scream for hours and throw herself against the doors. Nothing we tried would help. We were besides ourselves. Ordered TranQuil-Tabs and it she was totally quiet and has been every night since! She looks forward to getting her one tablet per night before bedtime. What a lifesaver!!!!
I bought this product after numerous ones i have bought have failed hoping for some releif for my dog..Come to find out there was none whatsoever..Hes a 95 pnd lab and suffers with anxiety due to seperation..I was very dissapointed i didnt find a product that would work..i really had hoped this would b the one..It did nothing to calm him down..I saw no change at all.
Great Help For A Very Nervous Dog
I am the only person to be able to pet, or touch, this dog. He likes people, but just doesn't trust them. He is a rescue dog, so who knows what happened to him in the first 3 months of his life. His stool has improved, from loose to solid in the time we have been using the product. I recommend it highly.
Does not work
by Parker's mom03/11/2012
Three years ago my springer fell off my bed straight on his nose, compressing the discs in his neck. At 12 years old, he can only shuffle along now, and if he falls down he can't get back up without help. Because of this he suffers from anxiety. At night if he wakes up and realizes I am not with him, he barks and cries continuously until I come downstairs and sleep on the couch. I was hoping these pills would help him not be so anxious and would help him sleep. No such luck! This product definitely does not work and I would not recommend it.
Best Purchase Ever
from Frisco, CO08/03/2011
My dog is terrified of thunderstorms and has anxiety in different situations. It helps him calm down a lot. I wish I would have learned about this product years ago. It is worth it!
Great Natural Calming Aid!
This product helps my dogs relax in stressful situations. Bodie needs help during fireworks season, and these pills calm her right down (along with some training of course). Tigger is more excitable, and these pills help keep him calmer when meeting new dogs, hiking near wildlife, and greeting visitors. I like the TranQuil tabs because they do not change the dogs' personalities, except for making them calmer and a little sleepy. They have no side effects. And they work pretty quickly (about 10-15 minutes). I highly recommend them for helping dogs through stressful situations.
DO NOT BUY THIS NASTY PRODUCT
from long island ny03/28/2012
This product doesnt work because its so nasty smelling that my dog actually heaved when I put it in her mouth! My shih tzu ran from the tab....what do they put into it that a dog, who we all know what they sniff and sometimes eat, wont go near it !?????
I do NOT recommend this product!
from Northwest OH04/27/2011
Our 5 year old German Shepherd hates thunderstorms and would pace, pant, claw, etc. until the storm was over. We tried this product and it has helped tremendously! The storms no longer bother him and he even sleeps through the nighttime storms!
He's a picky eater and won't eat them as is, so we cover them with whipped cream and he takes them with no problem!
