Canine Relax


The Relax formulation is designed to nourish and restore the nervous system of a dog that is so stressed or nervy as to be its own worst enemy. This formulation has been regularly fed to clients dogs over a 20 year period in our Clinic, support for many owners and trainers alike. 

Retraining your dog to react differently in stressful situations will break the habit but is a great deal simpler if accompanied by nervous system tonics that help to relax your dog so that he is able to respond better to training .

Animal Botanical Canine Relax formula is given initially 3 doses per day and then reduced to 2 or 1 per day as the behaviour improves. The size of the single dose is then reduced slowly to find the minimum dose that maintains the dog in a calm and reasonable frame of mind.

Animal Botanical™ Relax formulation contains some of the most reliable and traditionally used herbs for reducing physical nervous tension and anxiety.

The key ingredients in Animal Botanical™  Relax formula 103  being Passion Flower, Scullcap, Valerian, Vervain, Zizyphus, and Mistletoe along with the Bach Flowers Aspen, Cerato, Cherry Plum, Mimulus, Larch and Rock Rose.

The Science

Valeriana Officinalis (Valerian) originated out of Europe and Asia, is one of the most important herbal sedatives recommended against restlessness, sleeplessness, and minor nervous conditions: van Wyk, Wink, Medicinal Plants of the world,  2012.

Clinical indications on Valeriana Officinalis  (Valerian) have shown to have had positive effects on symptoms of anxiety, insomnia and demonstrated it has muscle relaxant qualities: Alternative Medical Review V9 No.4 2004 pp438-441

Scutellaria lateriflora (Skullcap) is a traditional nerve tonic and sedative treating nervous conditions such as tension, anxiety and insomnia; van Wyk, Wink, Medicinal Plants of the world,  2012.

A randomised double blind study on humans found Scutellaria leteriflor (skullcap) significantly enhanced mood without a reduction in energy or cognition: Brock, Whitehouse, Tewfik & Towell 2013.

Animal Botanical’s Master Herbalist has combined these significant herbs with other nervous system herbs such as Mistletoe and  Vervain as a complete herbal formulation that may help to calm your dog.
