Those are fine. I love them because they don't stink, and V&B seem to love them just as much as the stinky ones.

I would advice not becoming complacent about the "not being a gulper".  She may yet change, as she feels more confident.  :)

I never was one that allowed dogs to have chews without supervision.  I don't mean I stay right with the dog 100% of the time.  I keep the dog within my view... for the most part.

I have been thinking about giving her some Rescue Remedy, or some kind of natural calming remedy.  Just toying with the idea, at this point.

She is making a lot of progress.  It is slow coming, but every day is better.  I was just thinking, it must suck to be stressed out for 3 weeks.

I was reading about this product.  It is a "stretch" for me.  I don't know enough, to say that I believe or don't believe in these ingredients, reiki, etc. 

For those that do... what do you think?

Not sure how a product can "contain" Reiki.  Reiki is a source of energy.  But I certainly don't know everything and maybe it is possible. I have a friend on the other side of the continent who practices animal Reiki and she has helped two of my cats, greatly.

I don't know the ingredients either. Worth a try?  I am very happy with Rescue Remedy for Pets for Mazy cat, though it doens't seem to have any effect on the other two cats. It doesn't have alcohol in it, which I prefer.

How about some pheromones? A Diffuser and spray on her chest? I know for a fact that both of these are unscented. I've never tried the collars, but I'm sure they work too. We keep a diffuser in the RV. However, I'm not sure those collars are unscented. I tried a different brand of pheromone collar, and the silly thing was so icky scented that I threw it away after a storm.

I also use https://www.petco.com/shop/en/petcostore/product/naturvet-quiet-moments-calming-aid-dog-soft-chews before big storms.

They don't have the K10+ Calming at Petco anymore, so I tried these in a pinch since I needed it for an upcoming storm and there wasn't time to get it in the mail. These seem to work just as well as the K10+ though.

I was thinking the same thing -- I've never heard of Reiki in a bottle.  But like MC, I don't know and maybe it's possible.   :-\  Personally, I think I would start with the pet (no alcohol) Rescue Remedy and/or the canine Feliway (pheromones), I think it's D.A.P. and see if either or both work.  My first choice would be the Rescue Remedy, since you're not using a diffuser that everyone else will smell, even if it's just a small area.  DeeDee's soft chews might also be a good option.
