Petplicity Liquid Calming Review
I have a new trick up my sleeve for calming anxious dogs. I discovered it a few weeks ago and I’m never looking back. It’s being added to my arsenal of emergency pet products. Want to know more? Read on for my Petplicity Liquid Calming review.
I discovered Petplicity’s Calming formula on Amazon when I was searching somewhat hopelessly for dog calming products with good reviews, that I could give to Bruce during our holiday together in case he got anxious or unsettled either on the journey there or while he was getting used to his new surroundings.
By chance, I came across Petplicity and the reviews really caught my eye; they were glowing. One user after another professed their love for the product after it calmed down dogs that were terrified of fireworks, hated travelling, or suffered from separation anxiety. I knew that I had to get some for Bruce, and I’m so glad that I did.
I first started using it about a week before we left for our trip, to test it out and make sure it didn’t have any adverse side effects. What I found was that after about 10 minutes of ingesting the liquid drops, Bruce became calmer and more settled and stayed this way for a good couple of hours. He was in no way drugged up, out of it, confused or stoned, but simply more relaxed and content.
That’s what makes Petplicity Calming Liquid Formula so great – it doesn’t use any strong or unnatural drugs to sedate your dog. Instead, it works by using herbs and natural ingredients which are known to relax dogs, including St. John’s Wort, Ginger Extract, Valerian Extract, Tryptophan and Theanine. The added ginger is particularly useful for dogs that don’t like travelling, as it is known to relieve motion sickness.
The true test came during the day of Bruce’s journey to the North East. I gave him some drops in his breakfast before we left, which helped keep him calm on the long tube journey (with many interchanges) to King’s Cross. He sailed through it, and was happy to chill out and lie down whilst I grabbed some lunch at the station.
On the train he was fairly calm, though he did insist on sitting his 30kg weight on my knee for the first hour. After that, he started to act up a little bit, so I squirted the Petplicity Calming directly into his mouth and into his water, which he gobbled up, and 15 minutes later he was calmly relaxing by my feet and enjoying the adventure.
For me, this was no coincidence, and I am hugely impressed by this product. The fact that it is in a liquid formula and not a tablet means that it is quickly absorbed into the system and gets to work much faster than I ever expected. I’ll be keeping it in my bag, whenever I go out with Bruce on one of our adventures, and you can be sure that he’ll be having a dose before appointments with the vet and groomer.
