maxxicalm Calming Aid for Dogs
Helps anxious and nervous dogs relax during stressful situations
When your dog is displaying anxiety, it’s important to remember that their reaction is involuntary. They cannot help their behavior, but you can help them. Using maxxicalm calming tablets for dogs as part of a change program that includes adjusting the environment and retraining the behavior can help you comfort your pet so you can avoid a prescription medication. Additionally, maxxicalm comes with our eBook full of practical advice to help you to work with your dog.
Relax without drowsiness
maxxicalm calming tablets for dogs gently relaxes dogs, without the unwanted side effects often caused by a prescription medication.
With prescription calming medication, dogs may become so drowsy that they fall asleep or worse, become ill. This temporary fix can unfortunately make it harder to create a long-term solution that actually corrects underlying issues.
With maxxicalm, your dog is relaxed but still alert, creating the perfect opportunity for positive associations with previously stressful situations.
Contains tasty all-natural ingredients
maxxicalm contains only natural calm supplement ingredients that are highly palatable. Our specific formulation has been shown to support balanced behavior and maintain calmness in dogs.
All the calm supplement ingredients are of human grade quality and naturally promote a positive mood and reduce stress and tension in our beloved dogs without drowsiness. Learn more about our ingredients and their purposes below.
Integral part of a behavior modification program to create balance
The most effective way to create permanent change for your dog is to follow a behavior modification plan. A plan allows you to avoid unnecessary medications, when there are other possible solutions.
A comprehensive behavior modification program includes:
- Mitigating exposure to triggers
- Changing the environment
- Improving pet owner knowledge
- Helping your dog change their reactions
- Supporting with a relaxing supplement
In some circumstances, working with a professional and occasional medication may be necessary.
What is Taurine?
Taurine is an amino acid that is found naturally in meat and fish. Taurine is a conditional amino acid for dogs, i.e. the body can manufacture it. However, dogs can develop taurine deficiency and therefore benefit from supplementation.
How Does Taurine Work for Dogs?
Taurine has many health benefits. It is present in greatest concentrations in the heart wall muscles, brain and retina. Lack of taurine can cause your dog’s health to suffer, specifically his heart.
Even dogs that are not deficient in taurine may benefit from taurine supplementation.
The Benefits of Taurine for Dogs
- Supports overall heart function
- May help dogs being weaned off heart medication
- May benefit dogs suffering from dilated cardiomyopathy (enlarged heart)
- Can have a positive effect on energy levels
- Helps to calm the mind for better focus
- Helps control the release of chemical signals between cells in the brain
- Reduces the risk of taurine deficiency
Studies have shown a relationship between low taurine levels and diagnosis of DCM (canine dilated cardiomyopathy). Vets are increasingly checking for taurine levels in dogs with heart issues.
While this study shows that taurine inhibits the release of adrenaline and has a positive effect on dopamine level. This has calming effect which helps dogs to focus (and explains why taurine is one of the key calm supplement ingredients in our maxxicalm).
What is Inositol?
Inositol (sometimes called Vitamin B8) is one of the B complex vitamins (though not officially recognized as vitamin as it can be synthesized in the body from glucose).
Inositol is present in all body tissue but with the highest concentration in the brain, heart and eye lens.
Inositol has calming effects as it is involved in the production and action of neurotransmitters (chemicals that transmit messages between nerve cells).
The Benefits of Inositol for Dogs
- Involved in the process that transmits messages between nerve cells
- Creates a calming effect in the brain and may help with depression, panic attacks and obsessive-compulsive disorder
- Present in all body tissue, especially the brain and heart
Preliminary research indicates that Inositol has a calming effect and may help treat depression, panic attacks, and obsessive-compulsive disorder (Health Supplement Nutritional Guide).
According to WebMD one study found Inositol to be as effective as prescribed medication in treating panic disorder.
What is Chamomile?
Chamomile is an herb that has been used as traditional medicine for centuries, i.e. to settle stomachs, help with sleeping, and calm anxiety.
Chamomile has mild sedative effects, which benefits humans and pets alike.
The Benefits of Chamomile for Dogs
- Creates a mild sedative effect in pets and humans
- Beneficial for dogs prone to stomach upset when excited
- Used widely in traditional medicine for centuries
Chamomile is commonly used in calming aids for dogs, i.e. to relieve anxiety.
It also benefits dogs that are prone to stomach upset when over excited.
What is Passion Flower?
Passion flower (passionflower) is an evergreen climbing plant that has been used in traditional medicine for centuries. It can help with anxiety, insomnia, restlessness, epilepsy, and other conditions of hyperactivity, as well as high blood pressure.
Passion flower is included in many pain formulas, i.e. when the discomfort is caused by muscle tension and emotional turmoil.
The Benefits of Passion Flower for Dogs
- Helps relieve conditions related to hyperactivity and restlessness
- Helps ease symptoms related to epilepsy and high blood pressure
- Relieves muscle tension and pain caused by emotional turmoil
- Used widely in traditional medicine for centuries

What is L-Theanine?
Theanine is an amino acid. L-theanine is the form that has been used as supplement but it is found almost exclusively in green tea plants.
Theanine has a chemical structure that is similar to glutamate, a naturally occurring amino acid that helps transmit nerve impulses in the brain.
Theanine seems to protect the body from excess level of glutamate, i.e. helps regulate the transmission of nerve impulses in the brain.
Benefits of L-Theanine for Dogs
- Aids in the regulation of nerve impulses in the brain
- Clinical studies show its effective in calming and focusing the brain
- Found in green tea plants
Theanine has had significant clinical results for naturally calming and focusing the brain, and has been used effectively to treat anxiety and high blood pressure in humans.
Animal studies have also indicated that Theanine can have protective effects for the brain (How Stuff Works).
What is Thiamin?
Thiamine, or Vitamin B1, is a water-soluble vitamin of the B complex. Vitamin B1 is found in many foods, e.g. yeast, cereal grains, beans, nuts, and meat.
Thiamine is absorbed from the diet through the small intestine and is a key component of effective carbohydrate metabolism. It is not stored in the body so increased activity, stress, illnesses, can deplete its levels in the body.
Tissues with high-energy requirements, such as the brain, can be severely affected by thiamine deficiency.
Benefits of Thiamin for Dogs
- Works in the central nervous system to calm and soothe anxious animals
- Key component in effective carbohydrate metabolism
- Thiamine deficiencies can impact the brain and other fat-dependent organs
Thiamine has been shown to affect the central nervous system and helps to calm and soothe anxious animals.
What is Magnesium?
Magnesium is a mineral that is important in more than 300 chemical reactions that keep the body working properly.
Food that is high in fiber is generally high in magnesium.
Benefits of Magnesium for Dogs
- Lowers muscle tension and helps maintain healthy nerve function
- Involved in more than 300 chemical reactions in the body
Magnesium can lower muscle tension and help maintain healthy nerve transmission, making it good ingredient in any calming supplement for dogs.

What Our Customers Say
We are using maxxicalm for our 5 year old Rhodesian Ridgeback ‘Connie‘. She is a lovely girl but has always suffered anxiety. Maxxicalm has transformed her. She is much happier and her anxiety levels are hugely reduced. We give maxxicalm every day and it helps Connie be a happier dog. Thanks for such a great product.
Used this product for my 7yr old cross jack Russell, who has separation issues. Worked a treat, best product I've used. His all round behaviour has improved 100%. Would definitely recommend it to anyone.
My latest rescue dog has some issues that I was struggling with. He immediately took to me which was great but that meant he didn’t like to be left alone, not at all. He was also very protective of me and didn’t like other people, and especially other dogs, to come too close to me... I have never used calming aid before for any of my pets but I was pleasantly surprised with maxxicalm. It defiantly helps him to calm down and concentrate more. I was able to use the tips I was given and with the help of maxxicalm my boy is now like a different dog. I believe it is thanks to the combination of maxxicalm and the behavioural techniques I used with him. He is still work in progress but the improvements have been immense and I’m very proud of us both.
We started using this several years ago for our Irish Setter that had separation anxiety. It worked very well for him, so when our Lab became nervous during thunder storms, we gave it to her and it worked for that, too. We have four large dogs and three of them have various anxiety issues, so we are never without this product on the shelf. They all love them and if we need to give some to one, everyone lines up begging for them… The thing that amazes me is that our Lab's storm phobia has actually subsided sharply since using this product... Please don't change this product! It is perfect as it is!
Bobby is a very nervous and stressed dog, but maxxicalm has helped him a lot to become a lot calmer and less stressed.
Paddy loves his maxxicalm tablets they keep him settled and stop him becoming stressed as well, he’s a rescue and sometimes struggles with change and gets quite anxious but using maxxicalm makes a huge difference

Frequently Ask Questions
about maxxicalm natural calming aid for dogs
maxxicalm can be given as a treat or put in your dog's meal, whatever your dog prefers. Administer during or after your dog has eaten to reduce the chance of gastrointestinal upset.
For maximum results, it is recommended to divide the daily dosage between two servings (ideally no more than 8 - 10 hours apart if possible). This helps maximize the absorption of the ingredients and ensures a more balanced calming effect over the 24-hour period.
For some dogs though it can help to distribute the dosage differently through the day (morning, afternoon and evening for example, or perhaps an hour or so before the times the dog needs it most). Obviously, every dog is different and you know your dog best, so you may want to try different options and experiment to see what you feel works best.
maxxicalm is recommended to be taken on a daily basis either ongoing or a few weeks prior to any "dreaded" event.
Recommended dosage is shown at the back of the label (1 tablet per 1O kg / 25 lb body weight daily).
These are general guidelines. However, how much each dog needs daily often depends on the severity of their particular issues. And since maxxicalm contains only natural ingredients, it is also safe in slightly higher dosages than the general guidelines we provide.
So, after trying your dog on the guideline recommended dosage for a week or so, if you feel your dog could benefit from a little extra and providing it is well tolerated, you can safely increase the dosage slightly for a period of time. You can always reduce it back down later.
Alternatively, if you feel your dog could benefit from a little more just at specific times when more anxious, you can safely give a little extra just at those times. For example, before taking him to the Vet or leaving him home alone. If you do want to do this, we would recommend giving the extra approximately an hour before you feel it is needed.

Canine calming aids can help anxious dogs feel more relaxed generally and cope better in situations they find stressful. Calming aids can also help with managing various dog behavioural problems.
It is important however to remember that it is NOT a ‘cure’ in itself, but an aid to help dogs cope better with situations they find stressful and relax enough so their owners can work with them more easily to help them overcome their anxieties or issues.
For the best results, calming aids should be used together with other calming treatment techniques. Dog behaviour correction training, desensitization and counter-conditioning as well as and some simple changes in the dog’s environment alongside using a calming aid, will get you better results… and faster.
maxxicalm comes with a complimentary training guide (e-Book) to support customers with specific issues and offers advice on a wide variety of anxieties, fears and behavioural problems as well as tips on behavioural modification and the role of the owner.
It can vary how long it takes for any supplement to work. And in the case of natural calming aids, as they are not sedatives, the effects are gentler and it can vary how long it takes to see visible results.
It depends on the dog, what the issue is, how severe it is and what other strategies the owner is using alongside. Some owners see immediate results, but for others it can take longer.
Most dogs enjoy the taste of maxxicalm and will happily eat the tablets like treats. Others prefer them mixed with their food. However, there are of course always exceptions.
Some dogs can be sensitive to new things being added to their diet, especially if they are older or are generally picky eaters, and sometimes it can take a few attempts for them to get used to a new taste or texture. In those cases, it can help to get them used to the taste gradually by starting with a very small amount and working back up to the maintenance dose slowly.
