Are calming treats good for dogs? Yes, in general, calming treats are safe for dogs. Most are made with natural ingredients such as melatonin, chamomile, valerian root, L-tryptophan, and hemp to promote calming and stress relief. That being said, all dogs react differently to active ingredients in calming treats.
Can I give my dog calming treats every day? Some calming treats can be given on an as needed basis – such as just before a thunderstorm, fireworks, or a stressful car ride. Other types of calming treats need to be given daily over a longer period of time because the active ingredients need to build up in your dog’s body in order to work effectively.
What are the side effects of calming treats for dogs? Hemp and cannabidiol (CBD) are becoming more common in calming aids, treats and chews. Overdoses of these types of products may cause gastrointestinal upset, incoordination in walking, depression, sedation, lethargy and sometimes urinary incontinence. If these signs are seen, they may last from 24 to 72 hours.
