Solliquin is a new supplement designed to encourage normal behavior in dogs and cats with anxiety and fear disorders. Just like us, dogs and cats experience fear and feelings of anxiousness towards objects or situations and react with certain behaviors to handle them. Sometimes we can ease their stress or avoid certain events, but for some pets, it can lead to destructive, negative, or aggressive behaviors.
Solliquin helps produce a feeling of calm and contentment for your dog or cat and works to modify negative behaviors. It uses a blend of natural active ingredients including L-theanine, an amino acid found in green tea, which helps in the production of alpha brain waves. Additionally, it contains magnolia and Phellodendron extracts and whey protein concentrate with 10 essential amino acids. These include the building blocks for glutathione and serotonin production in the brain. Solliquin does not use sedation and comes in tasty chewable.
Common triggers include:
- Loud noises from fireworks, thunderstorms, or social gatherings
- Being home alone
- Kenneling, traveling or moving
- New people or pets in the house
- Changes to environment or daily routine
If you know what causes your dog or cat to feel fearful, you may plan ahead for these situations. For example holidays. Often, these situations are unavoidable. Therefore, take time to watch your pet to figure out what triggers them to feel anxious or stressed and what behaviors they express in response to it. Meanwhile, dogs and cats can also express phobias to certain objects or situations. For example the vacuum cleaner or bathing. Once identified, work with your pet to condition them to the object or situation. Try using training and give positive rewards to modify their behavior.
