Every dog has a personality and also each breed is well known for its specific behavior and qualities. As dogs are very sensitive to the events happening around them, we can help support our pets adapt to their environment by providing key nutrients necessary to naturally keep all the neurotransmitters in their nervous system balanced.
The amino acid L-taurine maintains healthy and stable nerve function and is shown to assist in coping with stressful situations. Another amino acid, L-theanine, has a similar use.
Inositol plays a role in the stability of nerve cells and in cellular signal recognition. Vitamin B1, Thiamine, improves thinking and protects the brain from negative changes related to stress. Magnesium is a mineral that helps fight nerve irritability and hypersensitivity to environmental stimuli.
The herbs Chamomile and Passionflower are known as comforting and calming teas. Research has shown they help fight stress-related behavior changes.

Potential Veterinary Indications
Chamomile has long been used in traditional medicine for the treatment of inflammatory diseases. In this study we aimed to investigate whether chamomile interferes with the COX-2 pathway. It is given orally to relieve anxiety and to relieve inflammation in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (which can have many causes). It also dilates smooth muscle to relieve cramping abdominal pain and is a mild sedative and anxiolytic (anti-anxiety). Another active ingredient of chamomile is chamazulene, which also acts like aspirin to inhibit production of the chemical mediators of inflammation. Because of these muscle-relaxing, anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic properties, chamomile may provide relief in a variety of common small animal disorders.
One the advantages of Inositol is Creates a calming effect in the brain and may help with depression, panic attacks and obsessive-compulsive disorder. inositol was an effective treatment for a variety of anxiety disorders including panic disorders and anxiety. It can affect the neurotransmitters in your brain, including serotonin. High doses may be beneficial for treating some forms of anxiety disorders and stress.
Taurine controls the release of chemical signals between nerve cells in the brain. Studies have shown that it inhibits the release of adrenaline and has positive effect on dopamine level. Taurine supports the neurological development, helps to regulate the level of water and mineral salt in the blood and has antioxidant properties. L-Taurine is an amino acid that plays a major role in neurotransmitter regulation, helping to calm for brain and muscle.
Magnesium is a natural muscle relaxer, which immensely helps with anxiety. It is a nervous system relaxant and mineral that assists with fear, irritability, and restlessness. Research has found that magnesium may help with brain functions that reduce stress and anxiety.
It Works in the central nervous system to calm and soothe anxious animals. Thiamine has been shown to affect the central nervous system and helps to calm and soothe anxious animals. Thiamine is essential for normal brain function and its deficiency causes metabolic impairment, specific lesions, oxidative damage and reduced adult hippocampal neurogenesis (AHN).
L-theanine, on the other hand, promotes relaxation and stress reduction without sedating. L-theanine
can help foster a state of calm, attentive wakefulness. Theanine has a chemical structure that is like
glutamate, a naturally occurring amino acid that helps transmit nerve impulses in the brain.
Theanine seems to protect the body from excess level of glutamate, i.e. helps regulate the transmission of nerve impulses in the brain.
It can help with anxiety, insomnia, restlessness, epilepsy, and other conditions of hyperactivity. It has some advantages like Helps relieve conditions related to hyperactivity and restlessness, helps ease symptoms related to epilepsy and high blood pressure, relieves muscle tension and pain caused by emotional turmoil. Passionflower has been used for the treatment of patients with central nervous system (CNS) disorders. Potential Veterinary Indications: Anxiety, nervousness; adjunct for treatment of stress due to travel or transportation; seizures.
