Description

With some pets, feeding a supplement can be difficult, which is less than ideal when they are already stressed out. For this reason, we've extended our popular calming range with these sneaky sprinkle capsules which can be easily mixed into food, so they won’t know unless you tell them!

SettleMe™ Calming Sprinkle Capsules offer a unique blend of ingredients thought to aid in settling overactive or anxious minds, and helping pets to cope during situations that create feelings of stress and anxiety, and distressing behaviours associated with this. SettleMe™ can be used to support pets in many areas they often struggle, for example:

  • Vet, cattery/kennel or groomer visits

  • Fireworks, thunderstorms and noise phobias

  • Parties and visitors

  • Travel

  • Introducing a new pet or family member

  • Separation anxiety

Feeding Guide:

Capsules can either be fed whole or opened and mixed in with food. Can either be given in one sitting or split between meals.

Give the recommended dose 1 to 2 hours before the expected stressful event is going to occur. For prolonged stressors, such as firework season, we recommend using daily for 5 to 7 days before the expected season and throughout, for as long as the stressor occurs.

I have always bought the named product that does exactly the same thing. However Thought I would get my dog to try this. Not so keen on the capsules as the contents inside there is quite alot. My dog is quite a small pooch and so on her dinner there is alot covering her food. I would say my dog prefers the meaty tablet that comes in named product, however my dog still eats her dinner and does the same thing as named product.

Maybe a little but not much help with fireworks but with the advancing of November 5th I'll keep her on it and the adaptil just in case it helps. I think removing them both right now might be asking for trouble as she's already gone nuts due to lockdown and I'm trying to help her without resorting to vet sedatives, my mind is not yet decided on whether these are helping.
Despite this I would still recommend that others should try these first.

VioVet's Response:

Hi Mary, Thank you for your feedback so far - it's good to hear you're going to keep up with SettleMe through the firework period. I think with no organised displays, it's tougher to pin down certain times where our neighbours will do their own, so continuing the support is a great shout. Phobias are difficult to help a dog through, especially when they need to learn over time that the fireworks aren't something that will harm them, and using these sorts of products will help her to feel better and allow her to have a calmer mindset to learn & adjust. We've got lots of content on anxiety and phobias on our blog that could help :-). SettleMe & Adaptil can also both be used long-term to help with the constant routine changes due to lockdown. Do let us know how she gets on - I hope you manage to avoid a trip to the vet! All the best, VioVet

Q & A

Below are some recent questions we've received regarding SettleMe™ Calming Support Capsules for Cats & Dogs, including answers from our team.

Pancreatitis

Becky

My dog has pancreatitis he is not on any medication just a strict low fat diet, would it be safe to give him these?

  • VioVet Staff

Yes the SettleMe capsules are safe to use in a dog with pancreatitis, in general you want to avoid flavoured supplements with this condition and SettleMe is unflavoured. Dosing is most easily done by sprinkling the product in the normal feed.

My dog takes antihistamine

Ali

My dog takes the antihistamine, piriton, can I still use this item short term when my dog gets stressed?

  • VioVet Staff

Hi Alison,

Thanks for getting in touch - your dog should be absolutely fine using both SettleMe & Piriton. The ingredients in SettleMe are natural and shouldn't have interactions with Piriton but if you wanted to, you can administer at separate meal times if you prefer.

I have a husky with seasonal itchy skin and he's had a SettleMe Chews (the core ingredients are much the same but in chew form) with Piriton in his meals recently and hasn't had any issues :)

Efficacy

Pippa

How soon after starting to take these will they take effect? e.g. should I start giving them now to help my dog during the forthcoming firework season (they’re on sale in the supermarket so they’ll start going off soon)?
Thanks

  • VioVet Staff

The capsules take effect within 1 to 2 hours so I advise giving the recommended dose 1 to 2 hours before the expected stressful
event is going to occur. For prolonged stressors, such as firework
season, we recommend using daily for 5 to 7 days before the expected
season and throughout, for as long as the stressor occurs.

Can this be given long term?

Eva

I notice the drops can be given long term by reducing the amount after an initial course. How can this be done with capsules if my dog has one a day or can they be given long term if I find they’re helping my dog with severe reaction/stress to other dogs/people?

  • VioVet Staff

The SettleMe capsules can be given in the long term at the standard dose rate, but if you would prefer to try a maintenance rate similar to that of the liquid then the standard dose can be halved. For example an 11-20kg dog could have 1 capsule daily at the maintenance rate.
If you are seeing a reduction in the effect that you require then just increase back to the normal dose.

SettleMe interactions with arthritis medication

Jayne

I am looking at using SettleMe capsules for my elderly Labrador who dislikes travelling in the car. He takes Amantadine and Metacam for arthritis .. is it OK to use SettleMe alongside these drugs

  • VioVet Staff

Yes SettleMe is perfectly safe to use alongside Amantadine and Metacam. The supplement can work really well for reducing mild travel related anxieties.
