VetriScience® Laboratories reached out to bloggers like me to share our experience using Composure supplements. As a participant, I received compensation for my time but all thoughts are my own.
Vince was born the Friday of Memorial Day weekend and since we have celebrated his birthday on that weekend. The pools are open and I consider it the official start of Summer, but it also means that some people will usher in Summer with fireworks. I’ve never been much of a fan of fireworks, unless they’re far away, because I find them terrifyingly loud so can only imagine what it feels like to be Vince.
Reduce Your Dog’s Anxiety With Composure from VetriScience® Laboratories
Each year, I have tried to anticipate and reduce his anxiety. The days leading up to and after 4th of July, I close the windows, draw the shades, turn on a podcast along with classical music, and wrap him in a blanket and wedge him between my body and another pillow. This method works fine when we are home, but one time we were driving home from my parents’ house and I did not expect to encounter fireworks and another time we stayed too late at a friend’s barbecue.
Summer of Booms
This year, I’m ready for the Summer season of booms and have picked up Composure by VetriScience Laboratories. Composure are calming supplements made with veterinarian formulated ingredients to help pets feel calm in situations that may cause stress or nervousness. The best part is Composure doesn’t affect Vince’s personality or cause drowsiness. And he loves the chicken liver flavor.
I found Composure online at Chewy and added them to my autoship order along with Vince’s food so I know I’ll always have them. They are soft, bone-shaped bite size chews that Vince easily takes. For his size, it is recommended he get on Composure about 30 minutes before an occasion that might cause anxiety.
On a previous to our vet’s office visit, they clipped his nails and he did not like it because he only wants me to clip his nails, so now going there is an event he would prefer we avoid. Every birthday, the vet sends a card and invites pets to come in and get a toy, I was going to skip it but having Composure, it was a great reason to give Vince one supplement and visit. He exhibited less panting, which is one of the first ways he shows anxiety, and entered the building instead of trying to stay outside.
Zest for Life
Vince has a robust zest for life, which I love! The way he enters dog park after I take him off leash is to run to furthest part of the park and then weave back to taking inventory of every pup and person.
But this same zest is hard for him to handle when we go to dog events where all dogs remain on leash. He is not free to roam and greet, gets anxious, and has a hard time focusing on me and commands. He is akin to the kid who sees cotton candy at an amusement park and is completely distracted from listening to his parents. I’m hoping the Composure can help him remain best self in these situations.
