Is valerian root an over the counter drug?
Valerian, commonly known as Pet Power®, is an over-the-counter medication for dogs and cats that acts as a sedative for spasms, convulsing, and hyperactivity. Valerian officinalis is the botanical name of the plant from which valerian root extract is prepared. The plant's root contains yellowish/brownish/green oil rich in isovalerianic acid, apparently the cause of valerian's unpleasant odor.
