Calming for Cats
not real sure
Still on the fence about the calming effect.
Have not really seen much difference.
Overall, its a treat and Im ok with that

Finicky Kitty Loves These
Both of my cats love these chews!! Monsoon storms can be severe in AZ, and after one hail storm which was like rocks being thrown at the house, I turned to Swanson for help.
I learned that not only did it calm my cats during loud storms, it helps my allergic cat to relax. Otherwise he would run through the house as though trying to lose the irritation that he must have felt.
He is much happier and relaxed. The chews really restore the cool in the cat!!
Price is reasonable, too. When a product delivers what it promises, I consider that a win-win situation for my cats and me! And as a result I consider Swanson and its vendors first when I need health products for my family.

Not bad, but I may buy again
I have 3 cats, 2 under the age of 2 and one 8+, and it works great for my old cat and one of my young ones. My only real issue with these chews are their size, a lttlle too big for a small cat to eat and they're kind of hard. I have to break each treat into 2 or 3 pieces before my cats can eat them.Overall, a good product to try if your pet needs a little calm.

I have 3 cats and 2 of them are litter mates. The smallest has always been a little excitable and is unsettled easily. I decided to try these little treats. It is working very well. She now can let me hold her in my arms for over a minute. She has always enjoyed sitting in a lap but not being picked up. This is a good change and has occurred in about 2 weeks with usage of one a day. I have previously used the joint aid treats. It worked very well in allowing my 20+ cat move around rather freely.

nice for long car rides
I didn't notice much difference in my kitty when I gave him the recommended dosage but recently he needed a higher dose because we were going on a long car ride...
I was taking my 6 month old kitty and my friend's year and a half old cat on an 8 hour car ride down south
I gave them more than the average dose because it's been stressful for the older cat to go on these car rides and it was my kitty's first time
at first I gave my kitty less than the older cat but during the car ride the older cat was very chill and stayed in one spot for the most part and my kitty kept walking around the whole car and jumping about
I ended up giving him more and he calmed down a bit, still to walk around more than I expected but the treats definitely worked
I'll definitely keep purchasing these if I'm going on a long trip again
and it's nice to know I have them just in case
I would definitely recommend them

This seems to help my cat who is often grouchy around the other cats. Some of my cats will not eat it; some of them like it- but it seems to help those who will eat it.

Couldn't really tell if it worked
I bought this because I recently had a cat die and left her sister behind to live with her grumpy granny "sister" cat. Everyone is upset in the house, so I thought this might help. Swanson price beats anything in stores or online by quite a bit, so thought I would try it. My cats went crazy with the smell and loved the taste. The treats were so large, however, I had to crush them into smaller bits, so they could eat them. I could not tell if they were more calm after the treat, but they loved the taste. I can't make a clear call on this product other than to say they loved the taste and hogged them down.

I am so happy to have found this - it truly does take the "crazy" out of my over-the-top alpha male cat. A very good choice for those days when he is out of control. The price is great!

Wonderful Product. I would highly reccomend that you use this in your cats daily diet!

We have one very busy kitty who sometimes annoys his feline companions...the Calming for Cats works great and he is much nicer to his house mates. Also great for thunder storms, travel or any stressful situations.

Really works, cats love it
My cat is super stressed all the time. Had a traumatising experience in the past. Helps him become all zen and calm really quickly, and the liver taste he loves! My other cat though... Won'T touch it.

Calmer kitty = Calmer owner!
My cat has always been a little crazy and it's hard at times to calm her down. However these treats have been working great! She is more calm everyday now and I can tell the difference when I don't give it to her.
Plus, this is the best price I have ever seen this product at! You just can't go wrong with that!

Calming cat chews really works!
I adopted an older cat-kind of skidish since losing her owner. More lay back after a chew.! So glad i found them and the price is right. Thank you Swanson!

Not Sure My Kitty Can Be Calmed
Kitty ate a few chews, but I did not noice any calming effect. This might not be due to the product not being good, I think my kitty is just too excitable and playful to be calmed down at all. She won't eat any more of the chews, so I will wait for a while and try again. I would still recommend the product as there are so many kitty personalities that may respond differently.

These have worked better than I had expected. My family has four indoor cats. The younger male often wants to play with the other cats when they don't want to play. These treats calm him just enough but not so much as to sedate him. Other times the two female cats will be grumpy with each other, hissing for no reason. One treat for each and the household is happy all day. Thank you!!

Don't know if they work because..............
My cat will not eat them! So I started to mix them in with other treats. That worked a few times. But now he won't even eat the regular treats he loves. He really needs something to help his stress. I was so hoping these would work for him. On to something else.

Helps with successful situations - my vet likes me to ask if ok before coming to an appointment

Perfect for my two cats, one very nervous and the other somewhat domineering! They both love the taste, and beg for them! Consistently good and effective.

The Best Product for my Crazy Kitty!
About a year and a half ago I fell in love with a 4 month old kitty that got dumped at the vet clinic that I work for. She was extremely scared of people, as she was an abandoned farm cat. When I first brought her into my home, she would hide all day in the bathroom or under the couch and then at night she would just run wild, jumping all over the counters, knocking things over, and just generally going crazy . Over time she did start to become part of the family and she became very affectionate and now loves people (haha especially me!), but she still has periods where she freaks out (normally in the middle of the night - right after I fall asleep and then has a round 2 about an hour before I wake up) where she runs around like a crazy cat, jumping on everything and knocking things over. Well, when I discovered this product, I thought it was worth a try, I would have done anything to get some sleep! These treats are kind of like a miracle. I give her one about 30 minutes before I go to sleep, and it completely calms her for most of the night. For her second freak out, I pull out the treat bag, give her one, and let the treats work their magic! It takes a little while the second time around, but it definitely does the trick!! I would recommend this to anyone who has similar issues with their crazy kitty!

Works Both Ways
We have a cat that slept in the closet or under the bed, ran from people, came out only at night when people are in bed - very nervous. We used this product on her and she is now more personable, joins us in the livingroom and accepts the love and affection we give her. We also added two adult cats to our household and this product was used to calm nerves and ease the blending process. I recommend it to both tame the wild cat and calm the nervous cat.

The People's Choice!
The Beast (not his real name) goes bananas between 2 and 5 in the morning. Otherwise, he's a mostly lovable orange & white cat. Thankfully, these Calming chews help him relax and, therefore, help the people in the house sleep through the night. He loves the chews and thinks they are his special treat.
