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.
