Great product

Great to treat severe itching from hives or allergic reactions, can also be used for mild anxiety. We have used these on our dogs when they broke out in a severe rash from an allergic reaction to a plant or ??? calmed him down where he could sleep instead of scratching so hard he scratched the fur off
