Calming chamomile gummies

Calming chamomile gummies

Not only are these little gummies pretty, they are the treat you want on hand if your pup is stressed and anxious or, has a hard time settling down.

Give your super-active pup one of these gummies at night time to help them come down from their daily antics or when you leave the house.

Let's take a closer look at the ingredients:

Chamomile helps with mild anxiety, stress and insomnia, inducing a stressed-out pup into a more relaxed state.

It is also a natural muscle relaxant and as such, will help a pup with tense muscles.

Finally, chamomile is used to help ease stomach upset or irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and can also calm down inflamed and irritated skin if used topically. What a wonderful herb!!

Lavender is well known for its relaxing properties. It helps soothe your dog physically and emotionally.
