Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian & I would like to help you with your wee one today.

In regards ***** ***** question, you could use this for her but since it is not designed for dogs there are no dosing guidelines established. Therefore, it would be ideal to instead use a dog specific calming agent. That would be safer and more effective. Common ones we use include Kalmaid or Zylkene. As well, Adaptil (which comes in a collar preparation) or Composure treats (great for positive reinforcement in new situations) could be of benefit. And I would note all are available over the counter at vets, pet stores, and even online (ie Amazon).

All the best,

Dr. B.
