Zylkene is a unique treatment for stress in Dogs, Cats and Horses. It is a safe and natural remedy, based on a protein extracted from milk. It acts on certain receptors in the brain to have a calming effect during periods of stress or environmental challenge. Ideally it is given once daily for a few days beforehand, then also on the same day as the stressful event. It is safe to give for long periods too, but if this is done, it works best if combined with some form of training or de-sensitising regime.
There are many reports in the literature of remarkably good responses to Zylkene. In dogs and cats it is particularly good for travel, re-homing, grooming, visiting the vets etc. For horses, Zylkene Equine can easily be given in feed for clipping, travelling, shoeing etc.
Zylkene can help in many situations where animals might be expected to feel anxious or stressed. However do remember that you have a part to play too. Our animals have a phenomenal ability to pick up on signals we give them. Zylkene works best when combined with thoughtful and considerate handling from calm and sensible people!
The average daily intake required 15mg/kg, given once daily. The pet's behaviour should be re-evaluated after a 15-30 day course and the daily intake modified if necessary.
