Pet Naturals of Vermont Calming XL Chews for Dogs Chicken Liver -- 50 Chewables
Takes the edge off for nail trimming and boarding
Our 120 lb Spanish Mastiff, Lucy is one big baby....she deals with severe anxiety when left alone. This natural product takes the edge off for her when we have to board her or nail trimming! Our vet didn't carry it (originally purchased my first bag from a high end pet boutique for a crazy price) but they were so impressed on how well it worked on Lucy during her three day stay, they started to order it. She loves the taste and it's less expensive through Vitacost.com.

I didn't think a do chewable would help my German Shepherd from cowering before and during thunderstorms, but this did the trick!

not effective for my dog.
My German Shepherd loves these treats. Unfortunately, they have no effect on her behavior though. I will not be ordering this item again.

No longer seem to be as effective....
I initially purchased the smaller package of 21. That size wasn't as strong, but the first several packages I used worked wonders with my Basset Hound, who hates to be left alone. These definitely calmed him, but the longer I use them, they don't seem to be as effective. I'm now using the XL chews, for dogs over 75 lbs. and he's 55 lbs. They help, but he used to sleep and was far more relaxed when I first began to use them. I probably bought at least 5 bags of the 21 size, and now this is my first XL larger bag. I don't know if he's developed a tolerance, but when I return home now, I no longer find him alseep and he's always crying...like he was before I began to use them. I still think they're better than nothing, but am disappointed that they no longer work as well as they did in the beginning. My dog is never left alone for longer than a few hours at a time. The last time I left him for a couple of hours, he was crying when I got back...a dramatic Hound cry! The reason I bought these to begin with.
