BestMate Himalayan K9Chew CALMING is a 100% natural dog treat based on an original ancient recipe from the Himalayan region of Nepal. Handcrafted using a traditional cheese making process, this hard cheese chew is a true dogs delight. A healthy snack with an irresistible cheese taste.
Fortified Recipe includes: Chamomile, Honey and Alpha-Casozepine which helps to promote calming and relaxation for your dog.
Alpha-casozepine, a milk-derived peptide, seems to be effective in treating anxiety in dogs and other species suffering from anxiety-related conditions.
Another nutrient of interest is the amino acid L-tryptophan, the metabolic precursor to the neurotransmitter Serotonin. By increasing the tryptophan:large neutral amino acid ratio, the availabilty of tryptophan increases, producing greater concentrations of Serotonin. As we know, Serotonin then plays an essential role in the regulation of mood, anxiety, appetite and sleep, thus L-trypothan has the properties of a neutral anti-depressant.
Studies show that dietary supplementation of tryptophan has promising effects on dog behaviour. DeNapoli (in 2000) reported having moderating effects (with improvements in anxiety-related signs) of a diet with an increased L tryptophan/large neutral amino acids.
For dogs over 16 weeks old.
When choosing a BestM8 Himalayan K9Chew please ensure it is the right size for your dog. DO NOT choose a larger chew for a smaller dog as this could be too hard for their teeth.
