Calm Shen - A Long-Term Calming Anti-Anxiety Supplement for Dogs and Cats


Calm Shen is calming blend of herbs for dogs and cats exhibiting nervousness, hyperactivity, discontentment, or responding to environmentally induced stress. Calm Shen helps dogs and cats maintain a normal and relaxed disposition while also helping them cope with external stresses.

Calm Shen is a great formula for behavioral problem management and may help to curb destructive behavior by helping dogs and cats maintain calmness. Calm Shen may also reduce hyperactivity by promoting a sense of relaxation and mental alertness without drowsiness. The herbs in Calm Shen help to maintain contentment during separation, travel, times of loud noises such as fireworks or thunderstorms, tension caused by changes in your pet’s daily routine, or other situations that may cause anxiousness.

What's In It?

Heat-Draining Herbs

In a healthy dog, the heart, a fire element (yang), and the kidney, a water element (yin), are balanced. Excessive emotional or physical stress and aging can diminish normal kidney function, which leads to the inability to control heat (heart fire) and subsequently allows nervousness to occur. Rehmannia, asparagus tuber, ophiopogon, and scrophularia all help to clear heat and restore balance.

Spirit-Calming Herbs

Anxious behavior may also occur due to an imbalance of the heart itself and may take root as excess heat or agitation. Biota seed and polygala help to calm the spirit while preserving the dog or cat's unique personality.

Harmonizing Herbs

Conducts the actions of the other herbs upward to the heart spirit.
