Lactium (sold by Swanson vitamins under the label “Women’s Anti-Stress Formula”, dosage 15 mg/kg, and L-theanine, dosage 5mg/kg. Once or twice a day. Very large safety margin, no particular side effects — basically they either help or don’t. You can use them along with the “Through A Dog’s Ear” music CDs and/or a “white noise” machine, as well as a Thunder Shirt or a T-touch wrap for severe cases. Remember, if you try to “coddle” your dog during these times, it can be counter-productive. They sense the upset and emotion in your voice. Instead, reassure them in a confident manner to let them know “I’ve got this. It’s fine.” Be the leader and let your dog know that you are not afraid.
