Stress, Relaxation and Multi-Systems Calming Support*
Serenity Zen Dog and Cat contains a variety of natural plant chemicals, including valepotriates, alkaloids, lignans, volatile oils, flavonoids, amino and fatty acids, glycosides, choline, quercetin, glucose and enzymes, used holistically to relax and calm an anxious, stressed dog or cat; to help function as an alternative to benzodiazepine drugs (i.e. diazepam, imipramine) due to its calming, mildly sedative and nervine effects which may help relax the Central Nervous, autonomic, sympathetic ("fight or flight"), somatic and parasympathetic ("rest and digest") nervous systems, as well as to relax and soothe the adrenal, cardiovascular, digestive, excretory and respiratory systems, helping to nutritionally and phytochemically support balance throughout all bodily systems when your pet is anxious or stressed.
The plant botanicals found in Serenity Zen Dog and Cat have been well researched for their tonic actions to help relieve stress triggers in the animal body; to help restore emotional balance; to help promote feelings of comfort, security and relaxation by helping to soothe the brain, to relax muscles, to regulate heart rate and to lower blood pressure.

Beef flavored capsules.
The capsules are certified Kosher and Halal, and meet all requirements of European Pharmacopoeia (EP), and the United States Pharmacopoeia (USP).
Valerian Root: Do not use if your pet is pregnant, breast feeding or scheduled for surgery requiring anesthesia. Valerian Root slows down the central nervous system and anesthesia and other medications used during surgery also are harmful when combined. Stop taking valerian at least two weeks before a scheduled surgery.
Pasiflora: None reported. Because Passionflower may stimulate the uterus, it should not be used in pregnant animals.
Chamomile: None reported. Do not use excessively for pets on blood thinners.
Anise: None reported.
Toronjil: None reported. Do not use with pets with hypothyroidism due to its ability to decrease thyroid hormone levels.
Mint: None reported.
Valerian: No significant drug interactions have been reported. Valerian Root may potentiate sedative effects of barbiturates, anesthetics, and CNS depressants such as diazepam (Valium) or amitriptyline (Elavil) and is cautioned for use when combined.
Pasiflora: None reported.
Chamomile: None reported. No interactions with the anticoagulant Coumadin have been reported, but in theory the coumarins in chamomile might potentiate this drug's effect.
