But it turns out that emotional disorders are not unique to people. Our pets may also have symptoms of anxiety, nervousness, stress or depression. The treatment, in any case, goes to the veterinarian. But it may help us a little to understand the reasons for this anxiety in animals.

Motives of anxiety in animals

Separation anxiety is the most frequent reason for anxiety in animals, likewise the lack of attention at home can cause this problem especially in dogs. These are animals that have developed a great dependence on the people who care for them and their absence, even for a short period of time, generates great anxiety and nervousness.

Currently, people concerned about the well-being of their furry companions seek both the assistance of a specialist and the possibility of using natural products. This is the case of those who care for dogs with anxiety problems, fears, stress and even diseases related to the central nervous system, such as epilepsy, it is common to find natural solutions that can relax or squid the animal, apart from following medicinal treatments if The veterinarian considers necessary. One of the most used plants in these cases is Valerian, because thanks to its components and properties it is very effective.

It is found in forests and wetlands, is perennial and can reach up to 2 meters high. It grows in Europe, North Asia and some areas of America.

For the medicinal use of valerian the roots are used, which are allowed to dry and grated when they are to be used.

Although the mechanism of action is not yet known, the sedative and calming effect of valerian root is known. Valerian also acts as a muscle relaxant, and is anticonvulsant, so it is used as an adjunct in the treatment of seizures and epilepsy. Valerian can have a calming effect on many dogs, especially those with "nervous stomachs."

Dogs can take this medicinal plant to benefit from its properties, but we must give it only if they really need it and as a treatment, not as a regular part of their diet.

Valerian use:

Anxiety, irritability, when the animal must undergo an event that is stressful: a trip, a contest, a change of house, ...

Among the components of valerian or Valeriana officinalis , found mainly at its root, include the following:

  • Essential oils and acids: borneol, eugenol, isoeugenol, cineol, valeranone, valerianol, valeric acid, valerenic acid and isovaleric acid, among others.
  • Alkaloids: actinidine, schiantin, actinine, valerin and valerianine.

The set of these components gives this medicinal herb a series of benefits for dogs, especially the root of this plant.
