Stress presents in many different ways in cats and dogs, and owners often report a variety of changes in their pet – primarily behavioural, dermatological, digestive and urinary. The causes of stress are numerous, including moving house, staying in kennels, the arrival of a new pet, and the home environment itself.

Royal Canin CALM contains an innovative combination of two nutrients known to help support stress management. Alpha-casozepine is a patented milk peptide developed after observations of the post-prandial calming properties of milk in newborns, while L-tryptophan is an amino acid precursor of serotonin, involved in mood control.
 
CALM, for cats and dogs, also helps support the skin and digestion with other benefits including helping promote the elimination of hairballs in cats, and helping delay the formation of tartar in dogs. Both cats and small breed dogs are particularly vulnerable to struvite and calcium oxalate urilith formation, and therefore CALM also contains Royal Canin’s S/O Index to help maintain urinary health.
 
Because palatability becomes even more important when animals are stressed, CALM has been designed to be highly palatable – preferred by 68% of cats in trials compared to a control food.
 
Royal Canin veterinary support manager Gudi Stuttard said: “We all know how stressful life can be, especially in a busy vet practice, and we recognise that dogs and cats can also be affected by stress. CALM is a unique way to help support them during stressful periods, as part of your multi-modal approach, in the form of complete, high quality nutrition to help keep pets in the best of health.”
 
Royal Canin recommends that CALM is fed at least 10 days before any anticipated period of stress, and should then be maintained for two to three months. It can also be fed on a long-term basis if required. CALM is available in 2kg and 4kg bags.
