|Bella learning how to be less agitated|
Here is a little back ground about the food. This diet was developed by Royal Canin for dogs and cats that show signs of anxiety. The diet is formulated for dogs under 44 lbs and cats of normal weight. The food supplements vitamin b3, tryptophane and a milk protein calming complex. I was curious to see if the food could make a difference in a dog larger than 44 lbs ( Bella weighs 49 lbs). The levels of the supplements are appropriate for dogs up to 44 lbs, but as dogs get larger the volume they do not eat that much more food so the supplement level is not likely to be enough to help. So Bella is 5 lbs over the top limit, but I thought it would still be worth a try.
I started Bella at 50% CALM and 50% of her Science Diet k9 adult food for 5 days, then onto CALM 100%. She has been on the CALM for 2 weeks. The company says it may take up to 2 weeks to see a benefit. I have been keeping a chart of how upset she gets - barking, lunging, and can not come when called when she sees other dogs, squirrels, and other triggers.
