Vetri-Science Laboratories Composure Soft Chews is a calming support formula recommended for pets exposed to increased environmental stressors. When pets can’t adapt to stress it can lead to anxiety, nervousness, hyperactivity, frayed nerves, abnormal urine marking, excessive scratching, trembling or shivering, and destructive or aggressive behavior. It is an advanced formula that contains a combination of factors, not found in other calming formulas, that support balanced behavior.
- Changes to environment
- Company or parties
- Veterinary or grooming visits
- Boarding or holidays
- Boredom or separation anxiety
- Moving or traveling
- Fireworks and thunderstorms
Composure helps alleviate stress-related behavior problems without affecting your animal’s personality or energy level. It can be used daily or when extra help to relax is needed. It contains a combination of factors not found in other calming formulas such as a calming complex from colostrum, L-Theanine and Thiamine (Vitamin B1) which all address stress and calming.
About the Formula
C3 TM - Colostrum Calming Complex is isolated from colostrum proteins which have a calming effect on animals. These bioactive proteins have been found to support cognitive functioning and support stress reduction. The Colostrum Calming Complex works synergistically with the L-Theanine in this formula to promote relaxation and cognition in dogs.
L-Theanine supports calming and relaxation, reduces irritability and low mood states. L-Theanine has been extensively researched for its ability to reduce stress, anxiety and unwanted behavior. L-Theanine is a naturally-occurring amino acid found in green tea that is a derivative of glutamic acid; a neurotransmitter in the brain. It helps the body to produce other calming amino acids such as Dopamine, GABA and Tryptophan and helps bring certain neurotransmitters into better balance. Studies done on L-Theanine showed that dogs reduced anxiety-related behavior without adverse effect or drowsiness; dogs were alert, playful and calmer than expected given their situations.
Thiamine helps manage stress and reduces irritability. Thiamine (Vitamin B1) has been shown to affect the central nervous system to help calm and soothe anxious animals. A lack of Thiamine can cause mental confusion, muscular weakness, muscle spasms, nervousness, and weight and appetite loss during periods of stress.
Composure does not contain any herbal ingredients (Kava Kava, Valerian, St. John’s Wort, etc.) or L-Tryptophan. Its ingredients do not cause addiction, drowsiness or impaired motor skills.
