Okoa’s CBD Calming Treats. The Secret to the Science Inside.

The genius behind Okoa Pet’s “Hush, Puppy” CBD calming treats for dogs is our Veterinary Science Officer, Dr. Rob Silver, aka Dr. Rob.  Dr. Rob established one of the first integrative veterinary practices in the United States in Boulder, Colorado, in 1993.

As an herbalist and integrative veterinarian, Dr. Silver observed firsthand the benefits of herbal and nutraceutical approaches to support pet health & wellness. We asked Dr. Silver to explain how “Hush, Puppy” CBD soft calming chews work.

Broad-Spectrum Hemp with CBD

5 mg. of CBD from broad-spectrum hemp

“Hush, Puppy” CBD+ calming soft chew treats contain 5 mg of CBD from broad-spectrum hemp extract per chew and have several herbal and nutraceutical ingredients designed to relax and soothe your pet into a calmer state of mind.

CBD, or cannabidiol, is known to enhance the calming neurotransmitter serotonin, which is responsible for the “CHILL” effect. A visit to the veterinarian, the groomer, loud noises, or even visitors can stress your dog to the max!



These treat-like supplements have the calming benefits of CBD oil and contain tryptophan, an amino acid found in turkey and milk that helps induce a calm state of mind as a precursor to the calming neurotransmitter serotonin.



Two forms of choline are found in “Hush, Puppy” CBD calming treats. Choline is a molecule that the body uses to manufacture other molecules that are also helpful in calming and helping your pooch CHILL! It helps regulate a healthy nervous system, is a precursor of an important neurotransmitter, acetylcholine, and plays a role in memory and healthy stress response. This neutraceutical is very much like the B vitamins in supporting the function of the brain and nerves.


German chamomile

German Chamomile was added to this formula for its well-known calming benefits. It’s a common herb used for hundreds of years safely by people and their pets.

When combined, these ingredients work synergistically to help calm and CHILL your pooch. The combination works much better than any single ingredient alone. You can feel comfortable giving a state-of-the-art formula using known herbs and nutraceuticals blended with CBD.

We regularly conduct Q&As with Dr. Silver. On a recent call, he shared in his own words the rationale for the ingredients included in our “Hush, Puppy” CBD calming treats for dogs.
