OUR NEW PRODUCT IS DESIGNED FOR PETS

 

K-9 KALM

 

Do you have a highly-strung pet that needs calming down a bit from time to time?  K-9 Kalm is an all-natural liquid herbal formula made especially for stressed pets big or small. It helps calm animals that are tense, over-excited, or experiencing temporary anxiousness.

 

Whether your pet experiences separation nervousness, over-excitedness at the park, visiting the vet or kennel, K-9 Kalm can help to calm it down. It also helps young, rambunctious puppies that need a calming dose now and then – especially while they are in training, or for times of acute stress like fireworks night.

 

While K-9 Kalm does an amazing job at helping bouncy, anxious dogs, it’s also great for overly nervous kitties and exotic pets and birds, too!

 

K-9 Kalm is made with herbs that help relax heart rates, muscles, and nerves. Stress and overactive behaviour can also negatively affect your pets’ digestion so by calming down the nervous system, it also benefits the digestive system.

 

Our alcohol-free process makes the herbs both bio-available and bio-utilizable, so every drop goes right to work supporting your pet’s health and well-being.

 

And like all Obsidian Organics herbal tinctures, K-9 Kalm is totally alcohol-free. It only has three things in it, herbs, glycerin, and water. Nothing else!

You’ll love it because it’s easy to use and works so well, and your pets will love it because it helps them feel calmer.

 

How do you use it? Some pets love the taste so much they’ll let you drop it in their mouths. With others, you may have to be a bit more creative and disguise it in a favourite treat or in their water. Or you can hold your pet, wrap an arm around him, open his mouth and put the drops in the middle of the tongue. Whatever works best for you both.

 

INGREDIENTS:  Chamomile Flower, Skullcap Herb, Valerian Root S. Tortuosum
OTHER INGREDIENTS:  Distilled water, USP Vegetable Glycerin.
