Nervous dog aggression

Glenys Dudley

I am thinking of trying this product as I have a rescue lurcher who through nerves shows aggression to other dogs and i wondered if this product could help in this situation. She is on another product plaque off at the moment which is also a natural product for her teeth so would it be alright to use the two products together?

  • Veterinary Advisor

This product could help and it is fine to give with plaque off. However in many situations like this a calmer on its own is not enough and it would be worth seeking advice from an animal behaviourist too. There are some helpful tips on

Long term use

Lisa Cooper

  • VioVet customer since 2013
  • From: , United Kingdom

Hi - my SBT has been on this now for approx. 6 years. I've always wondered if it is safe to be on this for such a long term. In your Q&A you state it is, but am I ok to carry on with it? My dog will be 7 in October.

Many thanks

  • Veterinary Advisor

Calm and focused is a very safe supplement and should be fine to use long term. However if you do have any concerns you could have a blood test done by your vet to confirm everything is ok.

Is it ok to give to my dog when she has 3 week old pups?

Julie Cassidy

  • VioVet customer since 2016
  • From: West Lothian, United Kingdom

My new mum came to me as a pregnant rescue. She is a small chinese crested & has had a litter of 7 pups 3 5 weeks ago. She is physically well and is feeding them ok. I'm about to go back to work in a weeks time. She suffers from slight separation anxiety & I was wondering if this would be ok for her?

  • Non-Executive Director

This product can be given safely to your bitch. You can improve separation anxiety quite a lot by the way you act when you leave and return. Ideally you should allow a "wind down" period for a few minutes before you go, offering little interaction and no particular affection, so that she can recognise that you are leaving accept it. When you come back you should always great her happily, but in a slightly low-key way. (The same applies even if she has been "naughty" and chewed something up or whatever while you were out). It also helps if you just develop a relationship where you are clearly in control and expect good behaviour all the time. She should follow your lead in situations and accept that you are in charge, but that you can be trusted to be a good leader.

  • VioVet customer since 2008
  • From: West Sussex, United Kingdom

I have two young GSDs and am trying this product to settle them down a little and focus on their training. Is it okay to give full dose in the evening meal. They have chicken wings for breakfast and ground raw at night so breakfast is a bit of a problem. At the moment I mix in a little yoghurt but not sure if it is okay to give yoghurt every day. Thanks.

  • Non-Executive Director

This supplement should be pretty much as effective if the total daily dose is just given in the evening. If you are able to split this up then it might be slightly better but is not a major issue.

A little yoghurt is fine to give every day.

Does this work on hyperactive dogs


Does it work on hyperactive dogs

  • Non-Executive Director

It has a variable effect on different dogs, so you will only know if it works in your dog by trying it. The most predictable, powerful and reliable treatments are licensed medications which have to be prescribed by your vet.

Length of use?

Kathryn Holden

  • VioVet customer since 2010
  • From: Wiltshire, United Kingdom

My dog is scared of loud noises from s hammer to thunder to fireworks he won't go in the garden anymore and we've tried so many options. Do you think this is worth trying and can it be used long term as you can't always predict when a noise is going to occur?

  • Non-Executive Director

This can be used long-term and should be some help. However some dogs become extremely phobic of loud noises and then it would not be adequate perhaps. You can get prescription medication which will help with this and you can even train your dog not to be so fearful in time, but it can take a lot of effort and time.

Can you use this for stressed cats

  • Non-Executive Director

We cannot recommend giving this to cats as we have no experience or particular knowledge of this. I would say that from the ingredients I would expect it to be safe, but cannot guarantee that and I have no idea how effective it would be.

Verspec calm and focused for dogs

chris davis

Can this product be used long term with no side effects.

  • Non-Executive Director

Yes it should be perfectly safe long-term. The effect might reduce over time, but it is fine to try it.

27 January 2015 at 7:23am



I have attempted to start my 2 yr old German shepherd on calm and focus however he will not eat the food when it is mixed in. I have blended the food, mixed it with his favourite food, tried it in a paste all to no avail. Any suggestions as to how I can give it to him? It would be much better if this was in tablet form

  • Non-Executive Director

Some dogs are very reluctant to take medication in their food and it sounds like your dog is not going to be helpful.

For this to work, you will probably need to use a type of food which is tasty to your dog, but which he does not normally get and it is a rare treat. Then you must only give this treat when it has this product with it, or he will become suspicious of it when you change it. You will have to find a new treat item and only ever give it with the VetSpec product.
