Royal Canin offers new petfood to relieve stress in dogs, cats

New Veterinary Diet Calm includes three ingredients to relieve stress in dogs, cats under 33 pounds.

Royal Canin has introduced a new Veterinary Diet Calm petfood with three ingredients designed to help relieve stress in small dogs and cats under 33 pounds.

The Calm petfood formula combines three ingredients: L-tryptophan, the amino acid found in turkey and other meats that creates a sense of well-being by creating more serotonin; alpha-casozepine, a peptide found in the protein in milk that calms nerve receptors; and nicotinimide, also known as niacin or vitamin B3, which has the same calming effects as alpha-casozepine. Calm also has a skin complex that helps skin retain moisture, helps heal any skin trauma and helps prevent infections, along with prebiotics and extra fiber as a gastrointestinal support for more normal bowel movements.
