What else can I give my dog to calm him from fireworks or thunder?
And how soon, out of compassion for him, you will calm him from his sorrows...
It worked pretty quickly to calm him from a storm.
These quotations are all taken from the internet. I have never met a phrase structure like this before. Usually, I don't use calm as a verb and mention the cause of the distress in the same phrase. However, it may come in handy. So, the question arises, can from be the preposition to use, or are these examples awkward phrases in general and better be avoided?
