NHV LessStress, Canine Stress & Anxiety Support
With a heightened sense of hearing and smell, small events that seem mundane to us can be terrifying and stressful for your dogs. Sometimes the stress is from the ride to the office, or maybe they are missing their human companions. This all contributes to changes in behavior like excessive panting, drooling, sweaty paws, dilated eyes, pacing, excessively shedding, or just completely shutting down. Some dogs become so stressed that it may lead to fear and aggression.
- Beneficial for stress, anxiety and other nervous system issues
- May be used for both situational stress and chronic stress
- May reduce hyperactivity and destructive behavior
- Supports healthy immune function
How NHV’s LessStress eases stress and anxiety:
For stressful experiences such as separation anxiety, the loss or addition of a furry friend, special events (eg. fireworks) and illness (stress can cause conditions to worsen), the natural (non-addictive) sedative properties of Lesstress gently relax the nervous system and endocrine system. Ingredients like Chamomile, Passion Flower and Lemon Balm work to calm nerves while ingredients like Reishi, Eleuthero, and Echinacea Angustifolia are very beneficial for helping the body adapt to stress and illness and stimulate healthy immune function.
What is the main difference between Lesstress and Matricalm?
Both can be used to help your pet with anxiety. Lesstress is good if your pup needs a little extra immune support. Ingredients like Reishi, Eleuthero and Echinacea Angustifolia help with the immune system and help the body deal with stress. Lesstress and Matricalm can be used together or separately.
Chamomile: Known to be a general-purpose calming herb for its antispasmodic and sedative qualities; may be especially helpful for calming digestive issues triggered by nervousness and hyper-excitability

Eleuthero (Siberian Ginseng): Well known for its ability to help the body deal with and adapt to stressful situations; may increase energy levels
Lemon Balm: Has been used since the Middle Ages to reduce stress and anxiety; beneficial support for nervous disorders, excitability and anxiety
