SMELLS THAT SOOTH YOUR SAVAGE BEAST.

Byline: - Jaime Spangrude

If Chomper is suffering from separation anxiety, chronic barking, nervousness or a serious case of hyperactivity, Aromadog can help.

The company's No. 1-selling product, Chill-Out, is an all-natural aromatherapy blend of lavender, chamomile and marjoram that will ease your pup's anxieties within 20 seconds of misting the air around him. Your canine companion will breathe in the soothing scent and a wave of calmness will instantly take over, according to the company.

``There's a great need for it,'' says Faith Thanas, product developer. ``It was a natural step from people to animals.'' Thanas adds that Chill- Out can be used anytime your pooch feels out of balance.

Aromadog is a division of Silk Roads Oils Inc. and is based in Leicester, Mass. Thanas developed Chill-Out in 1994 while living in the Virgin Islands. She had four dogs with her who were having trouble adjusting to a different climate and she knew something needed to be done for her animals. As an aromatherapist and aesthetician who has worked with people for the past 12 years, she created Chill-Out ``out of necessity.''

Carol L. Falck, a veterinarian at Friendship Animal Wellness Center in Pompano Beach, Fla., uses many of Aromadog's products, including Chill-Out, and has been very pleased with the results.

``In the exam rooms, we find that Chill-Out for dogs is quite calming and sometimes will allow us to examine a fractious or nervous animal that would otherwise have to be sedated,'' she says. ``The owners love the scent and often recognize an essence like lavender that they use at home.''

Aromadog has a whole line of aromatherapy pet products, including I Don't Stink So (an odor eliminator), Healthy Shine Shampoo, Litterbox Neutralizer, She-Devil Pet Perfume, Ladies Man K-9 Cologne, Coat Conditioner, Quick Fix Antiseptic Blend, Arf-ritis Pain Relief, Hot Spot Anti-Inflamatory, I Itch Not and Ear Clear.

Products can be purchased at Fifi & Romeo Boutique in Los Angeles and at Three Dog Bakery in Pasadena, or you can visit www.aromadog.com for more information. Aromadog will be at the Animal Wellness Expo June 5-6 at the Rose Bowl.
