I called PetSmart and Petco today to find a calming remedy for my dog, who's terrified of fireworks. (Her whole body shakes, she doesn't blink, and pins herself against a wall with her left paw up in defense.) Neither chain had anything. The Petco manager didn't even know whether they carried a product like this. What?? I called Accent on Animals, expecting another dead end, but the manager rattled off 3 or 4 products in the store. I bought Richard's Organic Pet Calm and Calming Soft Chews by Pet Naturals. They worked beautifully together. AOA is all about caring for pets. The big chains tend to forget what they're about.
Pros: Really caters to the needs of your pet
Cons: Experienced none
