Certainly worked for my girl.
I have a dog who can have anxiety when around other dogs or if the environment is hard for her to deal with. I recently attended an agility trial where she had to be in very close proximity to many dogs and where the venue was undercover, closed in and had the potential to be very intimidating to some dogs. I decided to try Anxiety Aid by Rufus and Coco and was very pleasantly surprised for the entire 4 days of competition. A dog with anxiety issues will often shut down and forget they're training but she was brilliant. Very different from what I expected from her on her first competition at this venue. They only thing Id done different was give her Anxiety Aid every morning with her breakfast.
Thank you Rufus and Coco.
Purchased in September 2019 for $15.00.
Pretty Happy with it
pretty happy with it. didn't think it would work because my dog was given medication for anxiety which would cost a bomb. but this actually worked on him. he's much more calmer than what the medication would do. I felt like it made the food taste better or probably loves the taste of it because he would actually enjoy eating his food and the best part is its organic. I hate giving my dog any kind of medication. this is worth a try
A Life Saver
This product saved my cat's life! I bought this just before my 8 year old cat had knee surgery and needed to be confined to a crate for a few months while she recovered. I wanted to make sure i was doing everything I could do make her recovery as stress free as possible. I admit that I was a little unsure about it when I opened the container and smelt a strong vanilla/powdery smell but once it was mixed in with some strong smelling sasha's blend and her food she didn't notice. I also had a Feliway device plugged into the room. I honestly can't ...say whether or not the product helped her anxiety alone or if it was a combination of my efforts, however, a few months ago there was a massive food recall in Australia on a premium tinned cat food that I had been feeding her for years. Cats had been getting extremely sick left right and centre and a few deaths had occurred. I stopped that brand of cat food and held my breath for months for the results to come in regarding what was causing the sickness. It turned out to be insufficient or nil thiamine in the food. Without thiamine cat's can go downhill very quickly and I believe if it wasn't for the Rufus & Coco Anxiety Aid I had been giving her daily she would have got extremely sick. Even though I have switched to a higher quality food I will still continue to supplement her with this a few times a week just to make sure she is getting all the B group vitamins she needs. I also gave this to my dog who engages in obsessive paw licking when he's nervous. It wasn't until I ran out of this product that I noticed it had actually been working. If he misses even a few days I notice his paws are usually wet with saliva when I come home. When he uses it he's also less jumpy with noises. It's best given daily in the mornings but can also be given an hour before a stressful event. The neighbours behind us have loud BBQ's every time there's a football match on so lots of yelling and cheering and I find if I give it to him before the game starts he's calm. He'll still bark hello once or twice if someone yells "goal!" really loudly but he no longer looks like his heart is jumping out of his chest and his eyes are not looking like a dear in headlights. Overall this product is great as it can be used for both dogs and cats and due to the natural ingredients with no added fillers it doesn't upset my dog's overly sensitive pancreas.
I have two cats, one with a spinal injury. The vet requested I purchase a pet supplement for the injured cat that contains tryptophan in the hope it will assist limited treatment options due to the cat's drug intolerance issues. After researching various products and their ingredients, I purchased Rufus and Coco Anxiety Aid. Neither cat will eat any food with this pet supplement added to it. For me this was not a good value purchase. Given my cats won't go near any food it is in, it is clearly not tasteless and odourless as was stated by the company to me during a phone call. More than that, I can't comment on the quality and outcomes of the supplement because both cats refuse to eat it. I am now looking at other supplement options.
Questions & Answers
Hi! I just purchased some anxiety aid for my little pup friend as he gets very bad anxiety around men as we were broken into years ago when he was just a puppy and we have assumed the people may have kicked him or pushed him to get him out of the way as he gets very excited and jumpy around new visitors, however I didn’t notice the recommended dose levels on the packet and I gave him one full scoop instead of 1/3! Do I need to take him to the vet or will he be okay! Thank you :)

Hi Georgia, Thank you for your question, more than happy to help! Anxiety Aid does include vitamins which like human vitamin supplements are possible to overdose on in large amounts, so always recommended to chat to a medical professional if you've had more than you should. If you have any symptoms or questions for your pup we would recommend maybe just giving your local vet a call with the pack in hand and they should be able to put your mind at ease! Let us know if you need anything else from us at all! Thank you kindly, Fiona @ Rufus & Coco
Hi, I bought the rufus and coco anxiety aid today. I'm just wondering how long does it take after a dosage to kick in? And how often can you give it to your pets? I bought it for my two kittens both males and both around 12 weeks old (both not desexed yet) to try to get them to get along because every time I introduce them they fight with each other. Do you think it will work in this case? Thanks, Olivia

Thank you for reaching out to us!
For best results with our Anxiety Aid daily use is recommended. It can be given as a single dose once a day, or half in the morning and half at night. For a single stressful event we recommend 60 minutes prior.
Your kittens fighting is quite normal, and although it may not be caused by anxiety our Anxiety Aid will help them in adjusting to their new home and environment and staying more calm through the process.
If the cats are the same age it should only take a couple of days of adjustment. It is also worth noting that fighting can be playing for cats / kittens - they do it for fun and entertainment and as part of their learning process.
We hope this helps!
