Avoid jumping straight into treatment with synthetic medication. Treating your dog with natural remedies is usually the safest option with the fewest possible complications. It’s when natural options fail that you should begin to consider medicine. Here are our favorite natural remedies:

ThunderShirt

is a type of dog jacket with special calming properties. There are no side effects because it is simply an item of clothing, but it is extremely effective at preventing anxiety. It works by placing a constant, gentle hugging pressure against a dog’s body, which causes feelings of safety and relaxation.

It works great on its own, but you can even use the jacket as conjunctive therapy by having your dog wear it while also using Zylkene or traditional medicines.

DAP Diffusers

are devices which release a special type of scent known as a “pheremone” which helps to calm an agitated dog. You can buy versions which plug into a socket (much like an air freshener), or manually operated pheremone sprays. These devices have mixed results, but a number of owners swear by them.

Zylkene

Zylkene is a supplement which contains a type of protein known as casein which can be found in milk. This is believed to have positive effects for the majority of dogs and can help to create a sense of security and calm. Because the active ingredient is a naturally occuring protein no side effects are expected.

Zylkene has no known drug interactions which means it’s very likely safe to use alongside medicines such as Benadryl or Xanax if you need an extra boost, but always check with the vet first.
