Thanks for writing! That is a great question.
If you feel that your pet is hyperactive, Hyper Helper is formulated to balance out-of-control energy with softer, integrated actions. This formula can help calm the hyperactive, high-strung animal, but also those who just need to instill a brief pause between thought and action. Hyper Helper contains essence of Chiton, which dissolves tension and blockages, and also instills gentleness. The essence of Chiton used in Hyper Helper is made in the Pacific Northwest off of Vancouver Island!
Stress Stopper is for the occasional, short-duration stresses that an animal faces: trip to the vet, thunder and lightning, fireworks, parties, vacuum, lawnmower, machinery, visitors and houseguests, vacations (if the animal is boarded or has a pet-sitter), unusual noises (remodeling, construction, roadwork, etc.), arguments with other animals, repairpersons; also good for animals who are left home alone all day, to prevent boredom and stress. It is formulated to help animals feel grounded and protected. Stress Stopper is formulated with many essences that can help an animal deal with emotional tension and turmoil, including essence of Canyon Dudleya, which is known to promote groundedness. The Canyon Dudleya essence we use in Stress Stopper comes from a 27 acre wildflower preserve in the Sierra Nevada Mountains!

Our formulas work best when used consistently - meaning tapping the bottom of the bottle on the palm of your hand immediately before administering, 3-4 times a day, and 3-5 drops each time.
Please remember that Jackson Galaxy's Spirit Essences work best when part of a more holistic treatment program, which may include proper veterinary care, diet, behavior modification, and other holistic modalities.
