For both people and animals, valerian root is known to be an effective sleep and calming aid. From my experience using it with my animals, it can be rather strong in its effectiveness. You may take it yourself and experience its effects to get a familiarity of how taking valerian root can feel. The results are not always the same in all people nor the same in all animals but it’s worth the effort if trying to find the best combination of calming aids for your animals.
