Shen Calmer is a TCM herbal blend that eases anxiety and nervousness in dogs, cats, and horses.


Will Shen Calmer Help My Pet?

The Traditional Chinese Medicine indications for Shen Calmer are:

  • Anxiety
  • Shen disorder (Spirit)
  • Heart Yin/Blood deficiency
  • Insomnia
  • Nervousness
  • A thin, fast pulse
  • Restlessness
  • A red, dry tongue


According to the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, stress often causes Liver Qi stagnation.

Then, after a period of time, Liver Qi stagnation often transforms into Fire which consumes the Heart Yin and disturbs Shen (spirit and mental activities).


When Shen is disturbed, anxiety ensues along with:

  • Nervousness
  • Stressfulness
  • Lack of focus
  • Poor performance
  • Madness


How Does Shen Calmer EaseAnxiety and Nervousness in Dogs, Cats, and Horses?

The key to treating a Shen disturbance is to nourish Heart Yin and cool fire.
