The supplements that we frequently use alongside behaviour programmes, or to help dogs settle into new environments or provide extra help at times of particular stress.
The health and wellbeing of our pets is really important to us and there is a range of products and supplements which can play a useful part in maintaining this, as well as supporting behaviour programmes, but there are so many products available, the choice can be overwhelming - and many, we have found, are just not worth bothering with. Over the years, we have researched and tested a huge range of products both with our own pets and through discussion with our trusted veterinary colleagues and working with clients. These have been whittled down to just a small number of products are from reputable companies, backed up with good scientific research wherever possible (not an easy area in terms of clinical application for pets, but there is some) and we now have a small set of 'go to' products that we have seen good results with and use regularly (this bit is personal experience, not science).
We're always happy to chat about our experiences, but we cannot give specific advice for individual dogs as there are so many things to consider in terms of current health status and, in some cases, interactions with existing medications - this is something only a vet can help you with.
Even though all these products are freely available, over the counter, we strongly recommend you speak to your own vet before starting anything new, especially supplements. REMEMBER THERE CAN BE CONTRA-INDICATIONS FOR SOME SUPPLEMENTS WITH PARTICULAR MEDICAL CONDITIONS OR OTHER MEDICATIONS.
If your vet is unfamiliar with using these types of supplements (as may be the case for some general practice vets), and in particular for herbal products, you may wish to consult a properly qualified herbal or holistic vet for specific advice.
Don't forget, if you are a current client undertaking 1:1 sessions with a member of our behaviour team, please do just give us a call as in these circumstances we work directly with your vet to help you build an individual wellbeing plan for your dog.
