What is a natural medication you can give to hyper dogs?

My dogs are very hyper, so hyper that family and friends do not want to come and visit us.

First, get the dogs checked out to make sure they're health; the vet should prescribe something if the hyperactivity is abnormal. Also, make sure the dogs are getting enough exercise. It's a common issue that dogs don't burn off enough energy each day and do damage or act out. Last, I have heard of people using Chamomile or Valerian Root.

Chances are they are cooped up and over-excited, so if you give them exercise (walks or runs) they should calm down enough for you to control. You can get them to associate a scent like lavender with relaxation and massage - but you must be relaxed also.

I would recommend three very useful herbs. The first is Chamomile, recommended for stressful, nervous animals. Skullcap for nervous conditions and Valerian, which will calm the most hyper animal down. Make a strong tea of two level tablespoons of these herbs, average size dog,(cocker spaniel)give morning and evening.

Putting a small amount of chamomile in your dog's food can help calm him or her a bit. Of course take the pet's weight into consideration when dosing. You don't want your dog to become sleepy and mopey, just less high strung. Start off with very small amounts, measured in milligrams, once a day until you get the desired result.
