ProQuiet® is meant to calm the nerves and relax the behavior rather than sedate the animal. The formula is based on the essential amino acid L-tryptophan, which is also a natural relaxant. Oral supplementation of L-tryptophan directly increases circulating levels of both vitamin B3 and the inhibitory neurotransmitter serotonin. The addition of hops and chamomile enhances the quieting effect as both are known to have calming properties. Ginger root, a recognized carminative, soothes upset stomachs making it helpful for motion sickness. It may also counteract the flight or fight influences of adrenal secretions in times of stress. Each ingredient plays a role in stabilizing the nervous system.
Veterinarians can recommend ProQuiet® for use in the following situations:
Travel and motion sickness
Mild separation anxiety
Competition associated anxiety
Behavior modification/training for enhanced focus
It is important to note that when using ProQuiet, label recommended doses should not be exceeded. ProQuiet may be used on an occasional basis or on a daily basis for mild separation anxiety. However, for maximum effectiveness, do not exceed 7 continuous days of use without a 2-day interruption. Without interruption, the body may build up a tolerance to the ingredients.
