What are the benefits of Betty & Butch® Calm dog treats?
Calming and Comforting Your Anxious Dog
Well known for its incredible calming properties for humans, lavender is one of the best natural dog anxiety treatments to use with a nervous, depressed or hyperactive pup - and is also an excellent sleep aid if your dog has insomnia. It can be used to condition dogs to a safe space too. Lavender's calming sedative-like effects were confirmed in a 2006 study with dogs who had a history of car ride anxiety which found that they spent significantly more time resting and sitting and less time moving and vocalising when exposed to the scent. Another study on diffusing lavender in a dog shelter showed similar results.
Chamomile provides the body with antispasmodic and light sedative effects. This proves to be beneficial if your dog has an upset stomach. Due to antispasmodic properties, stomach spasms and vomiting can be eased. This is because the abdominal muscles relax and stop spasming. This plant is also useful when it comes to calming uneasy nerves due to anxiety.
Skin and Eyes
The antimicrobial effects of chamomile can soothe itchy skin and eyes. This will also heal any irritation from scratching at the inflamed area. Bacterial and fungal infections can even be cured if treated early on with chamomile. It also has antiseptic properties which make it a great alternative for a natural eye rinse.
Chamomile is actually a natural parasite cure. It works slowly over time so it is great to use all the time, without any toxic side effects. Especially useful for ticks, chamomile is a natural way to easily remove the parasite. The anti-inflammatory properties reduce any irritation caused by parasites.
Soothing Itchy Skin, Allergies, Small Burns and Wounds
Is your dog always scratching? It’s possible they may have allergic dermatitis. A powerful natural antihistamine and anti-inflammatory, lavender can help soothe your pet's red, irritated and itchy skin. Together with its anti-bacterial properties, lavender can also be useful for sun or skin burns, small cuts and wounds and bug bites. It even helps soothe and restore dry skin.
What are the benefits of probiotics for dogs?
Probiotics are beneficial microorganisms that live in the digestive tract. Billions of these bacteria (and some yeast) live in the gastrointestinal system of animals. These healthy gut bacteria balance the internal environment to prevent disease and promote health. During times of stress, illness, or malnutrition, an imbalance can occur. Many dogs respond well to a supplement of beneficial microbes to bring the digestive microflora back in balance.
They perform tasks like:
- Helping to break down food
- Making nutrients and vitamins
- Fighting off potential pathogens
- Strengthening immunity
This complementary feed can be given responsibly to dogs and cats anytime as a treat or reward.
