It truly makes them calmer. It works the best if you can give it before the event, which is sometimes difficult with thunderstorms. If you know there is going to be one and give it 30 minutes to an hour before.
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.
not so good

I have a very hyper sheltie and have tried multple methods to calm him including sprays and pheromones and this pills. He will not touch these pills and will go around them or spit them out of his food.
Definite Improvement in my Merlin
I have a 7 yr old collie mix that I rescued 6 yrs ago. Was told he was housebroken and he basically was, until I left the house. Seems he has a case of separation anxiety and to show me how he feels, he would piddle wherever he could! Spank with the newspaper, no, rub his nose in it, no, nothing worked. Then I bought Tranquil Tabs. He still has an accident every once in awhile but for the most part this product has worked fantastically.
I bought these tabs for a rescued rambunctious, stranger-aggressive Jack Russell Terrier mix with the hope that they'd take the edge off her anxiety in being exposed to new people. Within an hour of my having given her HALF a tablet, she became quite ill - vomiting and diarrhea. She trembled and seemed confused for some time afterward.
Finally something that works
from Scarborough, Maine11/06/2012
I have a very nervous, anxious dog and have tried many products to help her stay a little calmer during stressful times. We have tried a Thundeshirt, Rescue Remedy, Melatonin - all with no real improvement. I tried Tranquil-Tabs on the advice of a friend and thought it helped more than anything else we tried. I'm not saying she totally stopped being anxious, but she does appear a little more mellow and not quite as quick to react to the usual triggers.
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.
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!!!!
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.
by Dog Lover
Great product, works fast to take the "edge" off without having to use prescription drugs.
This stuff is amazing. The first time to give it too our golden was 4th of July and two pills was all it took and he was calm and chewed on a bone the whole time. I reccomend giving at least 1 hour before if possible.
Calms without over drugging effects. Subtle effects. I find it takes the edge off during thunderstorms without making him too sedate. I like that its a natural herbal product. Each pill contains 100mg. of valerian plus other herbs like camomile and no other unnecessary junk! Haven't found anything else that works this effectively and it doesn't seem to stay in his system for an inappropriate amount of time.
TranQuil Tablets *Did not calm my dog down at all*
from Irvine, Calif.06/01/2012
This product does not calm my dog down at all. I wasted my money. I had high hopes of it that it would work.
Big time disappointed!
I have to say that I didn't see realize any benefit from Tranquil-Tabs.

from Freehold, NJ10/01/2013
I have a rescue dog who was abandoned in a car and I have found TranQuil Tabs help him calm down when I am taking him for a car ride. I would definitely recommend them.
Seems to work
from Phoenix, AZ12/13/2012
I actually bought these for a friend of mine who's large dog has frequent unexplained panic attacks at home. He starts panting, drooling and trembling for no apparent reason, Sometimes a loud noise will set him off, but often there is nothing obvoius. They can last minutes or an hour or so. My friend tells me that these tabs have definitely helped him. Therefore, I would have to recommend them.
from Bronx, NY11/17/2011
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.
It works so well I can't believe it!!!! My English Springer Spaniel is crazy with energy, I'm unable to walk her so she's on her own in the backyard, but she usually wants me there. I couldn't take a nap if she didn't have these Tabs to calm her down. Otherwise she barks at every car that goes by & wants in & out in & out in & out in & out
I'm too ill to keep up with her
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.
great for calming my dog
from Seminole, FL08/02/2014
This is a great product to give my dog who freaks out during thunder storms. It takes about 20 to 30 minutes to kick in and then she calms down and usually goes to sleep.
TranQuil Tabs are great for our JackRat
from Washougal WA11/06/2012
our whiny dog goes crazy some nights for no apparent reason, we tried these TranQuil-Tabs and they work great. And she loves them.
not too sure
I've been taking these off and on for a few days now and I still get anxious and too excited, bark too much.but will continue to take occasionally. .
Gives my old girl some peace
My 14 year old border collie lab mix has developed sundowners syndrome. She paces and paces endlessly once it gets dark. I tried vet prescribed Xanax, I tried the anxiety wrap shirt, nothing worked for more than a night or two.
TranQuil-Tabs seems to really help. I give her the pills with her dinner and again late at night if she seems to be anxious. She is sleeping through the night, and finally, so am I..
My dog hates these
from Pittsburgh, PA06/04/2013
They smell really bad and my dog who eats anything stays far away from these tabs. I wish he would like them because he's kind of high strung I thought these would work.
My dog suffers from separation anxiety, and we wanted to try some natural products before medicating him. These did not seem to have any effect on my dog. He did like how they tasted, and I had no problem getting him to eat them.
Have used before and will certainly reorder
Daisy is such a mellow girl with Tran-quil Tabs.
She is high strung and very protective and we are both happier with this product.
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!
Description did not specify it was chewable tablets.
I cannot tell if this works or not. The two times I tried it I saw no effect.
Completely ineffective on my dogs. I increased the dosage and it did not change the effect at all.
It did the trick
from Port saint Lucie Florid07/05/2013
This product worked out better than my previous calming pill I purchased. This was perfect for the 4th of July celebrations all around the city. Thank you so mucy for your recommendation.
I bought TranQuil Tabs for Dogs from EntirelyPets.com and my 55 lb dog broke out in a sever case of hives! For a little over 24 hours, I was having to give her one 25 mg of Benedryl every 2 hours to calm her hives. She was running a very hot temperature and I was extremely disturbed by her hive break out.
I first gave the supplement to my dog in August of 2011. She broke out in a red rash and thought TranQuil Tabs might have been the cause. I tried TranQuil Tabs again last week and her reaction was extreme. She was covered in dozens of hives. I followed the instructions indicated on the bottle and was frightened with her reaction.
Here are photos that I took:

Got these for my daughter's puggle - really has helped!!!!!!!
Worth a try
Think this has helped my dog with her fearfulness!
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.
Great Product & my dog loves them!
by Remi's Mom07/23/2013
I used these on the 4th of July when my dog is normally BEYOND hysterical at the sound of fireworks. They seemed to help him relax and remain much calmer during the noisy celebration.
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.
Great for Traveling
from Henderson, Nevada06/25/2013
I have a very nervous terrier who has a problem
with taking trips in the car. I ordered TranQuil Tabs, he thinks it is a treat, and it worked so good. He just found a place curled up and fell asleep.
Before TranQuil he would move around and pant.
Then he wanted out of the car. These will always be on my shelf. Thank you Entirely Pets.
TranQuil Tabs work well for my 6 month weimeraner puppy. He is getting adult teeth and these really calm him down. Also good for my older Husky that is noise sensitive.
from Pearblossom, California05/26/2012
I just have to share how great this product is. We have 2 Golden Labs. They get separation anxiety. Our male Lab jumps on the doors and gets real hyper. I gave them each 2 tablets. Within 10 minutes, they have calmed down and are now laying down. They are not groggy from the effects of prescription pills. I will definitely buy more when these run out. Our male Lab loves sticks!
They do help!

from North Kingsville, OH07/29/2013
I actually think these help Alice calm down when a storm is approaching! We still need to give her the prescription for the thunder, but these tablets help her before the actual storm. Alice can pace for hours when she senses a storm coming!
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.
high anxiety dog calmer
I have four large dogs. One is a Great Pyronese and the other three are 1/2 GP and 1/2 yellow lab. One of the 1/2-n-1/2's is high strung, anxious and somewhat aggressive. The first week I gave her 2 2x's a day and it seems to work and then she adjusted to it. So I started giving her 3 2x's a day and she is much calmer and less needy. But she still goes crazy when someone comes over. But since peeps rarely come that wasn't our biggest issue as we could always put her in her kennel when someone came over; it's the times when we're at home and she was driving us crazy with all her anxiety issues. So it iss nice to see her finally relaxing with us and actually sleeping. Sometimes though I do have to give her a bit of melatonin as an extra measure. But this product works way better than aany prescription I have given her, even clomicalm which did nothing for her. Plus the ingrediants are all natural which I like.
from Vashon Is., WA state02/07/2014
I have an "over-the-top" excitable cocker spaniel who barks a lot and goes crazy barking at other cars when I am driving down the road. I have been giving him Tranquil tabs for several months now, in addition to other "natural" calming products rather than prescription meds. I can't say how much one works better than the other but the combination I'm using has definitely made an improvement in his ability to stay calmer. I give them to his throughout the day. If you decide to try this approach, check the ingredients for each product to avoid too much of anything.
My dog Steve gets very stressed during thunderstorms. Tranquil-Tabs is the only product I can get her to take easily.

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.
by Hound Lover
from Huntsville, AL10/14/2013
This supplement effectively calms my bloodhound, who use to be very nervous and jumpy, especially in reaction to noises and new people. He still gets nervous sometimes, but it takes something big - like a thunderstorm or a trip to the vet - to make him anxious, and I'm certain he's less anxious than he would be without the Tranquil Tabs.
from Almost Heaven West Virginia05/22/2013
Lady is a rescue dog and she becomes very anxious when she hears fireworks, gunshots, thunder, etc. We used to give her Benadryl when thunderstorms were passing through our area and it worked OK but tended to make her very drowsy. I saw the TranQuil-Tabs when I was searching the internet for natural calming supplements or medications and decided to order some after reading reviews on this product. We have had several severe storms this spring and our dog goes from pacing the floor to being able to calm down and relax after she takes the TranQuil-Tabs. This product has made a significant difference in the quality of our dog's life during periods of loud noises and I would highly recommend the TranQuil-Tabs to other dog owners.
from Hampton VA01/11/2014
My dog who came from a shelter and has a lot of anxiety has become a lot calmer with tranquil tablets. They work great. She is also more attentive and listens better. I would recommend it to everyone to give it a try.
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.
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.
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.
Really working well!
from Aiken SC05/06/2012
Bought these tabs for my very shy, anxious 'pound hound' and for my elder(15) rat terrier with anxiety and confusion issues and BOTH seem to be doing much better without being sedated! I am stocking up!
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
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 !!!!
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.
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!
wonderful stress reliever
these work great when i go out in the evening and my dogs get separation anxiety. no side affects at all, just calming
5 stars for Tranquil-Tabs
by Luann Miller08/04/2009
These tabs have been way more effective than a prescription medication from our vet. Thanx, cvlu
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!
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.
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.
Best Choice to de-stress your pets
My dogs love the Transquil tabs !
It very effective in calming my 5 doggies who
are afraid of loud noise and fireworks!
I bought this as a substitute for Vetricalm based on the website's recommendation since Vetricalm was not available. I actually believe it made my german shepherd more barky rather than calm her down. Vetricalm as been the only product I have found that works.
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.
Helped Lucy a little during thunderstorms
Lucy weighs 45 pounds so I had to give her three. It seemed to take the edge off. Scruffy, (the 20 pound Jacairn Terrier) doesn't need them - nothing bothers this little guy.
from Toronto Canada08/21/2013
It did work with my dog, I can see the difference after taking the tablet. Recomended!
from Chicago suburbs01/11/2013
This is a great natural product to have on hand for anxiety and stressful times. I use it for anxiety reactions in our hyper, yet very intellilgent, border collie mix, on those occasions when she will not settle, or prior to trips to the vet. I also use it on our 3 y/o rescue Lab, who came to us with quite a traumatic history, requiring both surgery to correct his injured leg from a motor vehicle accident and heartworm treatment. I am convinced that he has the dog version of PTSD, and becomes anxious on occasion. A gentle, natural remedy that I have recommended to many.
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.
this didn.t work for my very anxious rescue but I believe it could have helped with increased family involvement .
My little female Jack Russell Terrier is extremely afraid of storms. TranQuil-Tabs do calm her down.
not so good
Have tried it a few times on dogs scared of thunder. Really didnt see any real results.
this product gives my dog an xtra treat at bedtime and helps her sleep comfortably.
I buy these for my miniature female dachshund,she was an abuse dog that we rescue.These help her when she rides in the car,
from Pittsburgh Pa.04/13/2013
Bought these tabs for my dog Sammi. They help a lot with her anxiety and also for sleeping better at night.
Helps with thunderstorm phobia
from Stokesdale, NC08/13/2013
My dog is absolutely terrified of thunderstorms! His whole body shakes, he breathes heavily, and tries to hide under anything he can find when he hears thunder so I decided to give these a try. They work well if I know the storm is coming and give them to him before it gets bad. They help take the edge off so he is not going ballistic without completely knocking him out. I also use these for my other dog when we travel to help her relax and settle down and they work great for that.
I have a (almost) 10 year old chocolate lab, who has had varying levels of anxiety throughout her years. It started with basic separation anxiety; then she began chewing on herself (to the point her hind legs and rear were raw) :(. Over the past several years, she has developed an intense fear of loud noises, i.e. fireworks and thunderstorms. (Side note: Oddly enough, each behavior replaced the one prior).
I have 3 dogs but 2 with issues with stress. Rebel has worries with thunderstorms. His behavior is fright to flight. It has now widened to times of hard rain because he worries about possible thunder----.must be around the corner!!! With mixed emotions I bought tranquil-tabs but with a huge turn-around in my dogs behavior makes this product is a five star in my world!!! , It makes his behavior workable ... i am thrilled ! My other dog , baxter has worries about comming to work with me, even though he comes with company he is worried about human contact. So every morning I give him a tranquil - tab and it seems to make him more receptive to facing all kinds of humans at work..............i bought this product with "I don't believe it will work" attitude but------ I am excited to say " it works " and I will be a steady customer !!!! thanks....... the calm household of rebel. baxter and abby
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.
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!
by Tiger 206/16/2011
TranQuil-Tabs have made our hysterical Jack Russell a pleasue. He has gone back to playing with the other dogs and taking naps.
Great for minor fireworks
by Designer Gal07/17/2012
These worked very well for my 65 lb Labrador-relaxed him quite a bit. BUT They didn't work so well when they fireworks were super close to the house tho.
