PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS: ‘CALM & RELAXED’ TREATS
Today we have a new section in PomPomDog, called ‘Product Highlights’, where we will talk about a new product that we’ve discovered in the market for our Pomeranian Colette.
EXPLANATORY NOTE! We stress that, unless we indicate it here expressly, this kind of posts are not sponsored posts where companies pay us to talk about their products.
The first product highlight that we want to talk about is the Calm & Relaxed Treats from the brand Pooch & Mutt.
Pooch & Mutt is a British company, founded in 2008 by Guy Blaskey, with the purpose of creating a large variety of food, food supplements and treats to help dogs with specific health problems, like his dog Cookie, who suffered from hip dysplasia. Its products are trialed on its own dogs and those of friends and customers, but never on laboratory animals.
All Pooch & Mutt’s treats are hand-baked, low-calorie and gluten free. Treats come in useful tubes, which open and close easily. They are approximately 150 treats per pack, small treats, totally suitable for our Pomeranians’ small jaws. They are sold individually for about 4 € or in lot of 6 tubes for about 20 €.
Among all the treats variety (7 in total), one we have chosen was “Calm & Relaxed”, because we know that one of the main problems facing our nervous Poms is the separation anxiety from its owner, causing them a lot of stress.
Among the main ingredients that the “Calm & Relaxed” variety includes are lamb, l-tryptophan and chamomile: l-tryptophan is essential to form serotonin, the ‘feel good’ neurotransmitter, and chamomile, used in ancient Greece and Egypt, is well-known for its relaxing properties.
We have given one treat to Colette when she has had to stay alone at home and another one just before bedtime – it’s her ‘tea moment’ like mine 😉 – and we have noticed her calmer…the minute she was eating the treat 🙂
In any case, as well as in separation situations, it is a good treat for other stressful situations, such as visits to the vets, journeys, dog competitions or fireworks.
If your Pomeranians are nervous, do you give them something for they to feel more calm and relaxed?
We’d love to know your opinion in the comments section of this post. Thank you very much!
