Please be patient as there may be slight delays in responses as I research your pet's issue.
I do not think that the Vitarapid treats would work as well as you would hope... those ingredients would take time to absorb into the bloodstream. It wouldn't hurt to try, though. I think your best bet would be to try a DAP collar or DAP spray... you can buy them on Amazon.com or at a pet store. It is a pheromone product that emits a pheromone that calms and soothes dogs by mimicking the pheromone released by the mother dog when the pups are nursing, and it has a very good soothing effect. I spray it on myself before going into an exam room with a nervous dog. They make collars, too, that you can put on the dog when they are nervous that emit the same pheromone. Adaptil is the brand name that I like, but you can just search for DAP spray or DAP collars. It stands for Dog Appeasing Pheromone. That is a simple, natural solution that works wonders with many of my patients.
I hope that I have answered your question thoroughly. If you still have questions, please reply.
