[NEW PRODUCT] How to help your pet’s behavior

Behavioral problems are one of the main reasons pets are surrendered to shelters. For most pets, these behavioral issues usually stem from anxiety and fear. However, just because some pets might carry out unwanted behaviors, doesn’t mean they can’t leave those behind and learn appropriate behaviors with some patience, a little extra love and care, training and calming supplements like Solliquin.

Anxiety and fear are major factors that can cause inappropriate behaviors. For pets, there are many events that can scare or stress them out. For both dogs and cats, these common causes of anxiety and fear include:

  • Traveling
  • Loud noises (fireworks, thunderstorms & construction)
  • Being home alone (separation anxiety)
  • Moving
  • Kenneling/crating
  • Car rides
  • Getting old
  • New and unfamiliar people and animals

When pets are anxious or afraid of their surroundings, it’s likely they will react negatively and resort to inappropriate behaviors that they think might help the situation.  Any of the above causes of anxiety can instill a negative response from pets resulting in unwanted behaviors that can be harmful to your pet, your home or even yourself.  Common dog behavior issues that stem from fear or anxiety are:

  •  Aggression
  • Barking
  • Destructive chewing
  • Food guarding
  • Howling
  • Mounting
  • Nipping/biting
  • Separation anxiety
  • Whining

For cats, common behavior issues include:

  • Aggression
  • Destructive scratching
  • Litter box problems
  • Meowing/yowling
  • Urine marking

How to help calm your pet

Calming and behavior supplements like Solliquin can be a great tool in helping your pet calm down. However, it takes much more than supplements to improve your pet’s behavior and ease their anxieties. One of the best methods to maintain your pet’s happiness is keeping them well-exercised. Not only does exercise release the “happy” chemical in the brain it also reduces any pent up energy that can turn into anxiety.

Positive reinforcement training, meaning rewarding your pet for good behavior, will help them learn the difference between wanted and unwanted behaviors. Training your pet also increases the bond between you and your pet resulting in a trusting relationship.

Other natural remedies for pets is to keep them occupied with toys and chews, playing calming music, calming pheromones, and even a good, soothing massage.

Solliquin helps support normal behavior and relaxation

Containing all natural ingredients, like extracts of magnolia, phellodendron, theanine, and whey protein, Solliquin encourages feelings of calm and contentment. It also helps reduce any negative behaviors related to stressful and anxiety-inducing events.

Solliquin is perfect to give to pets during times of stress including traveling, meeting unfamiliar pets and people, and loud noises like thunderstorms and fireworks.

It is available in tasty soft chews for cats and small to medium dogs and available in tasty chewable tablets for medium to large dogs.

  1. I have a 10 year old shittu and he has separation anxiety, hates thunderstorms, and is just getting old and grumpy. This will help out tremendously. I just want to give him comfort that he deserves. He is a great dog and we love him very much.

  2. Max has a problem with loud or sudden noises. It gets so bad that he trembles uncontrollably. I have 2 thunder shirts (different sizes) and they don’t even help. I have tried several other medications but nothing seems to work. It would be great if this would help him stay calm.

  3. Ten years ago, we adopted the most wonderful kitten! Now he’s getting older, and he’s developed anxiety which is really affecting his health. We love our cat and we want him to live a long healthy life 🙀🙏

  4. Skipper has separation anxiety. He is not able to stay home alone without freaking out. He usually destroys everything in sight.

    I would love to try these. I rescued a dog with separation anxiety and have tried many things Nothing has worked

  6. My pug mix Oliver was rescued from a puppy mill over four years ago and even though he’s very happy and has two dog siblings that live with him he shakes and lifts his leg in our home. I bought him a thunder shirt and he wears belly bands but he still gets nervous. I would love to try something healthy to help my sweet rescue boy.

    Our little chipin Boo has always been more of a cautious, nervous little girl but when we had to put her buddy (and our sweet boy) down due to cancer, she went into grief overdrive and it is heartbreaking. Barking at everyone that comes in the home, tucking tail and hiding from people, big decrease in appetite, and just not herself at all. We have tried many things, both natural and prescribed (she will NOT take a pill and when we are able to give it to her, it seems to make her worse!) Would love to try something new to help Boo get back to being her sweet self.

  8. This would be great!

  9. We rescued Sara a few months ago from a shelter where all she did was shake and shake. We have talked with our Vet and even she has no idea what more to do for Sara. We have tried Vetri Science but that makes her a little weird. What can you recommend for our Sara since it is driving us crazy and we don’t know what to do? We have had other terriers and none of them were like this. She needs a bath and she needs to learn what a leash is and we still have not gotten to any of that. HELP…

  10. Yes this look like it going be a good product, both of mine small dogs Bichon and Teddy bear dogs are scared of thunderstorms, firecrackers and popping sounds. Bichon does not like to ride in car she whines whole care ride.This look like it going be great and hope it works.

  11. Puppy Xanax? Lol. My sister has a little dog that will chew through a metal kennel when left alone. My sister had to register her as service dog so she wouldn’t have to leave the dog alone.

  12. Josie is afraid of car rides, rides and whines. She also is very hyper when people visit.

    Laverne-our loving beagle mix paces frantically when a crazy neighbor starts shooting this cannon sounding gun-unfortunately legal I guess where we live-It is very saddening to see her do this and knowing we are limited on what we can do for her-please pray for us-Lavernes Dadah

  14. This would be extremely helpful to try since my dog has anxiety and we are at our wit’s end as to what to do.

  15. My German Shepherd has stress with firecrackers and my two Brittany boys have some generalized anxiety.

  16. One of our boys had Addison’s so lessening his stress is always a good thing.

  17. I have a 20 year old cat who recently started waking me up frequently during the night. I assume she is anxious and/or having cognitive issues because the vet couldn’t find anything wrong with her other than mild hyperthyroid, which is being treated. I am interested in learned more about Solliquin to see if it might help her.

  18. Our Yorkie suffers from separation anxiety and my senior cat has started howling at night, which I think is because he’s getting kitty dementia. I’d like to see if these supplements would help them.

  19. My cat is 17 years old and beginning to show signs of dementia. I’d like to see if these would help him.

  20. That would be great.

  21. Interesting product, may help my nervous pup.

  22. My dog Emma has anxiety when we leave home for a couple of hours. And my husband and I have to be in the room when she eats and sleeps.

  23. Sadie is 10 plus pound rescue that is a shepherd mix we think. She has always had separation issues and now is headed towards Cushing disease. I need to move to another place due to her arthritis that is on ground floor or with an elevator. She is s wonderful companion. Worth every minute!!!

  24. This product could be the answer for our 2 yr old chihuahua; I would love to try it.

  25. This sounds like an amazing product! I know my 10 year old pitty could use it!
