- Veterinarian

Dr. Lauren Makowski, a veterinarian at high volume Colorado Vet Hospital, serves as one of our board members. She actively collaborated with us by engaging with behaviorists to discuss our formula and provided valuable recommendations for adjusting the formula for peak calming aid for dogs. Dr. Makowski also personally administers ZenMelts to her own dogs!

Recently, she introduced ZenMelts to dogs at the shelter affiliated with her Vet Hospital, and achieved remarkable success. ZenMelts were able to help one shelter dog in an acute situation transition away from injectable calming medications! Her regiment of ZenMelts allowed her body a break from Rx calming medication for several days at a time during this acutely stressful time in the shelter! Currently, Dr. Makowski is collaborating with the hospital's head veterinarian to develop a dosing protocol for animals both before and after medical procedures. So that there can be situational as well as daily ZenMelt regiments available for the pups at their practice.

“They melt smoothly on the dog's tongue, ensuring they can't spit them out. They are super fast-acting, and are crafted from all-natural, human-grade materials. I give them to my own dogs when we have workers at the house and for thunderstorms! We have also started using them on shelter pets and hospitalized pets to help keep them calm and relaxed!“
