Anxious Doggy?

Woof Woof is Code for … I Need Gabba!

Many Doggies struggle with anxiety, stress and attachment disorders.

What is GABA?

GABA is an amino acid that occurs naturally in the body. It works in the doggy brain as a neurotransmitter, which is a type of chemical messenger.

The GABA neurotransmitter is an inhibitory neurotransmitter. This means that it inhibits or blocks specific brain signals while also decreasing nervous system activity. GABA attaches to the GABA receptors in the brain and produces a calm and relaxed feeling.

Why GABA Rocks for Dogs!

Low levels of GABA are linked to an increase in feelings of stress and anxiety. This condition may also trigger insomnia and cause your Pup issues like headaches and muscle pain. These symptoms may be the result of chronic muscle tension, which can be brought on by anxiety and stress.

There are many benefits that come with increasing GABA levels in your Pup including:

Reduced Anxiety; One of the primary reasons to increase GABA is to help minimise your Dogs feelings of anxiety.

There is strong research that suggests this can be helpful.

* Enhanced Sleep; Increased GABA can lead to better sleep quality, too.

* Reduced stress and Fatigue; Chronic stress can contribute to chronic fatigue for many Pups.

Raising levels of GABA can help to combat this.
