Calm your stressed, hyperactive or frightened pet quickly with the fast-acting Dorwest Organic Valerian Compound for dogs and cats. Containing pure extracts of three herbs in liquid form, it acts within just 30 minutes, with effects lasting for up to two hours. It can be dropped straight into the mouth, given on food or sprinkled onto your pet`s bedding to help make any event instantly less stressful. It`s non-drowsy and even our fussy feline friends love the smell, making it super easy to use.

Frightened, anxious, hyperactive and stressed animals can be calmed quickly using this easy to give liquid. Dropped into the mouth, given on food or even just a few drops sprinkled on a pet’s bedding can result in a more amenable pet, so visits to the vet, travelling or moving house instantly become less stressful situations. 

Valerian helps to support the natural relaxant pathways within the nervous system, without affecting muscles. It doesn’t make pets dopey or sleepy – in fact it is widely used for agility and show dogs when they need to be alert and focussed, but calm. The concentrated herbal extracts used in this liquid ensure that within just 30 minutes a noticeable change in behaviour occurs without causing drowsiness and the effects are quite short lived. In situations that have a longer duration then we recommend also giving Scullcap and Valerian Tablets.

When faced with unexpected events like fireworks and thunderstorms, Valerian Compound has a fast action and it can also be used in conjunction with Scullcap and Valerian Tablets in especially fearful situations and for anxious animals.

Valerian calming Rdlv31 on 1 November 2016

This was recommended by a vet for my hyper ancious dog. Fireworks, storms, loud noises (I have seven grandchildren) - all added to his anxieties. It works! I have no idea why, but in conjunction with his sroem vest he has become a much calmer boy.

Dog hates it Anon on 21 December 2009

Can't comment truthfully on how the product works as my dog will not touch it. Refuses to eat her food if I try to hide it in there. The smell is awful. Sadly it looks like I've wasted my money.

Pet Planet Says: We would like to thank the customer in this review for their comments. We would advise to fill the pipette and squirt into the dogs mouth and then follow with a tasty treat. We have contacted the customer in this review direct.

Works well Marketa on 6 July 2009

I use this with my cats all the time because they are so neurotic. I add some to their morning wet-food. They now even come and try to lick the bottle.

This was a last resort for us as we have tried plug in infusers collars noisy CDs and other homeopathic remedies to combat fear of thunderstorms and fireworks Our 9 year old heinzdog continued to pant and shake despite several doses Ive no doubt that others have found the product useful but unfortunately it was not suitable for our dog
