My Labrador 15 months old is very anxious off cars and especially buses. A breeder of gun dogs suggested one Kalm tablet before her walk as they are herbal. Are they safe for dogs
I am sorry to hear about your problem with your Labrador. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.
Kalms tablets should be safe; the ingredients are herbal. I would also consider trying a calming product made just for dogs, called Zylkene. It is made from a compound found in milk.
If she has anxiety, this may help.
I would also consider working with a dog trainer on this problem, and try to desensitize her to her fear of buses. I agree a Lab this age needs a lot of exercise!
Let me know if I can help with anything else.
