Description

Each smokey bacon flavoured SettleMe™ chew contains a blend of ingredients believed to be helpful in supporting calm behaviour and in reducing anxiety, stress-related behaviours and over-activity.

SettleMe™ chews are intended to provide support and help your pet cope better during stressful events such as:

  • Vet, cattery/kennel or groomer visits

  • Fireworks, thunderstorms and noise phobias

  • Parties and visitors

  • Travelling

  • Introducing a new pet or family member

  • Separation anxiety

The chews are seen as a treat and are easy to give, with or without food.

How do I choose a pack size?

The packs of 30 are ideal for cats and small dogs (both for short and long-term use) and can also be used for larger dogs if you want to try the product for a week or two before buying the 60 pack.

The pack of 60 are larger and have 4 times the amount of each ingredient. They are ideal for all sizes of dogs and are perfect for long-term use (a pack of 60 will last a 25kg dog 60 days, and dogs over 50kg 30 days).

See below for directions for use for both packs.

55 Finally got my dog back!
Verified Purchase

By on 19 December 2021

I bought these for my elderly Spaniel Jess after a really difficult few months. She began staring at me in the evenings instead of sleeping and jumped out of her bed at my slightest movement. She'd bark when I arrived home from work until she saw it was me and her dog walker had said the same was happening for her. Eventually, things got so bad that she seemed unable to settle at night and would wake me several times a night with whining and pacing. I'm unsure of the trigger but this season's fireworks and pheasant shooting have felt particularly long-winded and being an older dog now I think she's just more vulnerable to stress and anxiety than before. Some research made me wonder if we were beginning to see some signs of old age cognitive decline which was really troubling to me. So I bought these thinking that worse case scenerio it's a 2 months trial and a little wasted money but I was I willing to try anything by this point. And boy am I glad I did!
SHE'S A DIFFERENT DOG! Because things were so bad I gave 2 tablets a day for the first two days, spaced apart and then dropped to one a day. By day three I was noticing she was sleeping more in the evening. Day 4, I saw her have her first dream in weeks. Day 5, I slept all night and wasn't woken by her once. We're now a couple weeks in and she's finally back to her old self! Sleeping all evening, sleeps all night through. No whining. No pacing. No staring at me all evening. And crucially they are NOT sedatives! She's got exactly the same bounce and spring all day long but is finally able to relax again. I am so so pleased with the results of these products and I'll definitely be keeping her on them for the foreseeable future. Bonus is that they are so yummy she thinks they're a treat!

Have bought these before. My dog suffers from allergies and also doesn't like fireworks. These chews help to settle her so she's able to settle and sleep.

Verified Purchase

By on 19 December 2020

I had high hopes after reading the reviews that this product would help calm my dog. Sadly it didnā€™t, even using the double dosage for a couple of weeks as recommended by Vio Vet. Sadly my boy went as crazy as usual on hearing the fireworks.

25 Disappointed
Verified Purchase

By on 19 November 2020

I have tried my Daschund on many different products over the years, for the craziness and distressed that is caused by fireworks. I bought them early and by mid October he was taking them. He loved the smell and was keen to take them as they are like a meaty sweet. Sadly they had no effect on him whatsoever, he was in them for nearly a month and I didnā€™t see any change in his behaviour. Sadly it is back to the drawing board for Christmas and New Years Eve.

Q & A

Below are some recent questions we've received regarding SettleMeā„¢ Calming Support Chews For Cats & Dogs, including answers from our team.

15 October 2021 at 9:10pm

Mrs Thomas are they OK for 5month old o.e.s. puppy

Hugh

Are they OK for 5 months puppy

  • VioVet Staff

Yes these chews are safe for use in puppies once they are weaned, which includes your 5 month olf pup. It is not advised to use them in the long term or routinely though in a puppy. It is far better to behaviourally train your dog to cope better with the situation that needs calming rather than cover it with a calmer. Calmers can work great alongside a good behavioural training plan though.

CBD oil

Fru P

Is it ok to give Settleme along with CBD oil?

  • VioVet Staff

The ingredients within SettleMe have not been tested alongside CBD oil. This will likely be safe but it is unknown whether it definitely will be. You should confirm with your vet whether this is safe to be certain.

11 October 2021 at 11:11am

Effective for how long?

Heather

How long do the calming effects of each chew last, both the low dose and higher dose chews?

  • VioVet Staff

These chews are dosed daily and should provide calming effects for most of this time period. The calming effect will begin to fade towards the next dose so it is advised to give them 1 to 2 hours before the desired effect, to ensure they are onboard and active for the stress/anxiety event.

8 October 2020 at 9:28am

When to start giving

Janet Shaw

  • VioVet customer since 2016
  • From: West Yorkshire, United Kingdom

Both my westies are frightened of fireworks. Do i start to give these in advance of the day or will they be affective just given on the day?

  • VioVet Staff

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.
If the fear is mild you may find just dosing on the day is fine but if you want to get the full effect then dosing in the build up to the season for 5 to 7 days is advised.

Can these be given alongside Milk Thistle?

AJ

Can these SettleMe chews (and the liquid) be given alongside Milk Thistle, for a dog who takes that for liver support? Thank you.

  • VioVet Staff

Hi AJ,

Yes, you can use either SettleMe product alongside Milk Thistle. The ingredients in SettleMe are natural and should have no interaction with other supplements/medication.

Kind regards,

Danielle

Other medication

Penny

Hi, my cat is a very anxious cat and I've been giving her Cystease for about a month and have seen signs of improvement. Can I give these chews in conjunction with Cystease during a stay at a cattery.
Thank you

  • VioVet Staff

Hi Penny,

Thank you for your question,

There is only one overlapping ingredient between the SettleMe™ Chews and Cystease, so they should benefit from the extra ingredients found in SettleMe™ chews. As both contain natural ingredients, they are also safe to give in conjunction with each other according to the feeding guidelines. We also sell SettleMe™ in a liquid formulation which is extra palatable, especially to cats, which can be found here.

I hope this helps!

Travelling

Susan Andrews

My rescue Lurcher doesn't like travelling in the car. She drools excessively (we have to line the car boot with several newspapers) and is sick as well, even if she hasn't had a meal. She also shows fear aggression at the vets. Will Settle-Me help?

  • VioVet Staff

Hi Susan,

SettleMe should be able to help your lurcher feel calmer and receive desensitisation training more easily, however it does sound like her fears are quite severe, so no supplement will be able to resolve it alone. They're perfect for helping her to achieve a more positive mindset and feel calmer, but it would be most beneficial to do some training with her over a long period of time, using a calming supplement like SettleMe to improve her receptiveness.

It sounds like she has a rough time, and if motion sickness is the reason for her vomiting, rather than fear, then your vet would be best placed to prescribe medication to help with this. However, drooling and vomiting can be through fear, and you will be able to help your dog through this.

For the fear of travel, you can give her SettleMe daily, around 1-2 hours before a little training session. Start with getting her into the car regularly, and sit with her until she is calm. You can give her gentle reassurance to help her calm down, and her favourite treat when she's settled. Do this daily/every other day until she can enter the car calmly. Then move on to starting the engine and very short trips of a couple of minutes, then progress perhaps to a nearby park or somewhere she enjoys, so she learns that not all journeys are bad. Over time, you should be able to increase the length of journey but I'm afraid it won't be a quick fix (although I'm now not 'scared' of them, and I make myself take a close look, I'm still not ready to pick up a big house spider!).

If she isn't sick on shorter journeys, hopefully you can start taking a toy and comfy bedding to help her enjoy the ride more too :-). I hope this helps - please get in touch.

Kind regards,

Danielle

Settle me - car travel

marg dillon

How effective is this for car travel? My border terrier absolutely hates the car she looking for something to keep him calm on long journey.

  • VioVet Staff

It is very hard to say how effective this supplement will be for your dog. Some calmers seem to work better for some dogs than others so it can be a little trial and error. However SettleMe would be as good as any to try first. If you do not have much success with this one then you could have a look at others such as Zylkene, Adaptil Express or Calmex. It would also be worth getting some tips from a dog behaviourist to use alongside the calmer- www.apbc.org.uk is a good place to look.

Long term use

Nikki Roberts

  • VioVet customer since 2013
  • From: Kent, United Kingdom

Hi. My 11 month old puppy suffers from separation anxiety when I leave her in the day. Is it safe to use this long term until she calms down? Thanks.

  • VioVet Staff

Yes SettleMe chews are safe to use at the maintenance dose long term. You could also try an Adaptil diffuser to help her settle. Leaving the television or radio on can sometimes help as well. You may find some other useful tips on www.apbc.org.uk.

Dosage

Wendy Brown

  • VioVet customer since 2012
  • From: Nottinghamshire, United Kingdom

Did I miss something on the advert - what is the dosage for Settle Me?

  • VioVet Staff

There is a tab on the product page listed "Directions for use". If you click on there it will show the dosing guidelines. For the first 4-5 days it is recommended to double dose and then go down to a maintenance dose after that. So for a dog under 10kg it is 2 chews initially then 1 chew daily, 10-20kg dog is 4 chews then 2 chews, 20-30kg dog is 6 chews then 3 chews and over 30kgs is 8 chews then 4 chews daily.
