Over enthusiasm and excitability should not really be considered a problem but this behavior which is often found in young dogs, can sometimes make day to day living difficult for the owners. The situation usually resolves itself with training and maturity but meanwhile herbal medicine can help. Scullcap & Valerian tablets are used to calm and relax dogs that are excitable, hyperactive or anxious and can be given for just short term use or over a long period of time if required. Our liquid Valerian Organic Compound will also act quickly to calm excitable animals for short periods and so may be used for visits to the vet, car journeys etc. It is worth noting also that hyperactivity has been associated with allergic reactions to certain foods or ingredients and so changing to a low protein natural diet may be helpful.
