Vetri-Science is a family-owned company that supplies veterinarians with a great range of products for your dog, all backed by science.
Established for over 40 years, the company has created safe, effective, and powerful products. The innovative supplements target the specific health needs of your dog.
In this article, we are featuring a small section of products and have written and compiled some vetriscience reviews, notably products that can help with anxiety and stress.
Composure™ is a supplement created to help your dog if he is suffering from anxiety or stress. It is an excellent option, suitable if you notice any of the below signs:
- Hyperactive behaviour
- Urinating in the house
- Scratching excessively
- Pacing when ought to be relaxed
- Panting excessively
- Aggressive or defensive behaviour
- Destructive behaviour
- Separation anxiety
The ingredients in Composure™ work synergistically to aid relaxation, but do not change your dog’s natural character. This is important so that your dog can lead a normal, active life without being lethargic, which would spoil his quality of life.
The main ingredients of Composure
- Colostrum Calming Complex® Biopeptide Blend – this helps in reducing stress and helps with cognitive function
- L-Theanine – this ingredient assists in the body’s ability to produce important amino acids, which help in bringing vital neurotransmitters back into balance
- B vitamins (thiamine) – the central nervous system of an anxious dog can go into overload under stress. Thiamine play a large role in calming the nervous system, thus calming an anxious dog
This simple blend works in synergy to relax your anxious dog. You can offer it daily, or you can supplement specifically when your dog is under stress or is feeling anxious.
In extreme stressful circumstances, the company advises that you can double or triple the dose.
- 30 or 60 liver flavoured soft chews – 2 – 3 chews depending on the size of your dog
- 30 Mini bite liver flavoured soft chews
- Composure™ Max Liquid 8oz – ½ to 2 teaspoons daily depending on the size of your dog
We recommend Composure™ as a safe and effective supplement for your dog when he needs help to cope with his anxiety levels.
Vetri-Science Probiotic Everyday
The key to good health starts in the gut, and this factor is the same for dogs as well as humans. If your dog does not have effective digestion, it can be a contributory factor for behavioral issues, including anxiety.
When a dog is highly stressed, it may affect his tummy causing him to suffer from diarrhea. A probiotic can help to prevent or alleviate this problem, by supporting the gut to grow bacterial colonies that are beneficial for your dog’s health.
Probiotics are becoming popular as a way of assisting good gut bacteria in dogs.
Probiotic every day is easy for your dog to eat, as it is chewable so you would offer your dog a daily chew, same as feeding a treat.
It is an excellent option at times of stress. If your dog has to travel for instance or is going into kennels whilst you are away.
Probiotics every day is a great option to help restore gut function after your dog has been on a course of antibiotics. It contains 1 billion colony-forming units for each chew.
The supplement comes in a container of 30 chews. Small size dogs have one a day, medium-sized dogs need 2 a day and large dogs need 3 a day.
Good health is all about balance, and you may find that feeding a daily probiotic will greatly assist in the management of your dog’s anxiety levels. It’s a positive option that can only help your dog’s health and well-being.

These enzymes help to break down food for optimum digestion and utilization of nutrients.
As we have mentioned before in this article, effective gut health is something that we, as dog owners, need to be aiming for.
A healthy gut gives your dog a greater chance of coping with, or even improving, his levels of stress. As an aside, a healthy gut means a healthy, happy dog.
Acetylator™ comes in a bottle of 120 capsules.
Your dog will need an initial dosage for 7 – 10 days to establish the supplement in the gut. This dosage is 1 to 3 capsules twice daily. The dosage will vary according to the size of your dog.
After ten days, your dog will be on a maintenance dosage, which varies from 1 to 3 capsules a day depending on the size of your dog.
