Calm Shen is calming blend of herbs for dogs and cats exhibiting nervousness, hyperactivity, discontentment, or responding to environmentally induced stress. Calm Shen helps dogs and cats maintain a normal and relaxed disposition while also helping them cope with external stresses.

 

Calm Shen is a great formula for behavioral problem management and may help to curb destructive behavior by helping dogs and cats maintain calmness. Calm Shen may also reduce hyperactivity by promoting a sense of relaxation and mental alertness without drowsiness. The herbs in Calm Shen help to maintain contentment during separation, travel, times of loud noises such as fireworks or thunderstorms, tension caused by changes in your pet’s daily routine, or other situations that may cause anxiousness.

What's In It?

Heat-Draining Herbs
Spirit-Calming Herbs

Heat-Draining Herbs

In a healthy dog, the heart, a fire element (yang), and the kidney, a water element (yin), are balanced. Excessive emotional or physical stress and aging can diminish normal kidney function, which leads to the inability to control heat (heart fire) and subsequently allows nervousness to occur. Rehmannia, asparagus tuber, ophiopogon, and scruphularia all help to clear heat and restore balance.

Spirit-Calming Herbs

Anxious behavior may also occur due to an imbalance of the heart itself and may take root as excess heat or agitation. Biota seed and polygala help to calm the spirit while preserving the dog or cat's unique personality.

Directions for Use

Administer the recommended dosage below.
Intended species: Dogs and Cats

120+ lbs: 2 tsp twice a day

For Cats: 

¼ tsp twice a day

Mix into their meal

Sprinkle the recommended dosage over your dog or cat's regular food and mix well. Add a little liquid to dry food to keep the powder from settling at the bottom. For the extra-picky pooch, we found it effective to add a tasty topper in addition to the powder (like our Smiling Dog Kibble Seasoning, for example!)

For Dogs:

< 30 lbs: 1 tablet twice a day
30-80 lbs: 2 tablets twice a day
80-120 lbs: 3 tablets twice a day

For Cats

½ tablet twice a day

Option #1: Feed As Is

If your pup is not particularly picky, you can just drop the whole tablet in his food, or see if he'll take it as a treat

Option #2: Wrap in a Goodie

If your pup is a picky eater, you can wrap the tablet in a special treat, like a slice of cheese or some peanut butter
