Description

Each 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 Success
Verified Purchase

By on 27 November 2019

It looked and smelled exactly the same as medication I bought for our miniature pinscherā€™ s joint pain. It worked very well for calming whippets, a westie and a miniature pinscher around the time of bonfire/fireworks night.

Collie really unsettled by bangs and it was firework season. Linked these with Adaptil and a white noise machine and he was worried but no longer frantic and this seems to be helping him long term too. He ate then happily! Smelled very beefy!

35 fireworks
Verified Purchase

By on 7 November 2019

I gave these to both dogs for a week before 5th November they were a little better with bird scarers but we had fireworks for 4 nights first night not to bad after that it was just panic ended up taking them out in car for long ride its the only place they were at pece

Customer does not recommend this product

VioVet's Response:

Hi Edward, This sounds like a good start, I'm glad to hear you noticed a difference with some of their noise phobias. I'd recommend continuing with the chews through this fireworks period and up to New Year, as they'll support them slowly learning that nothing is going to hurt them. If you can look into it, desensitisation training between now and New Year will be especially beneficial, but also making sure there is somewhere they feel safe in the house to hide would be great. Closing curtains, turning up the TV and remaining calm yourself should also help.If you have a diffuser plugged in like Adaptil or Pet Remedy, this will also help support them in a different way. It can be much more difficult when you have multiple dogs, as fear reactions can be learned from a companion, and if one starts off calm but one is panicking, it can make the other upset too. Please let us know if we can help any further! Kind regards, VioVet

Q & A

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

5 October 2019 at 8:18pm

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.

What Dose for 22 kg Collie

Rosemary Munro

  • VioVet customer since 2016
  • From: Aberdeenshire, United Kingdom

Can you please how many of these little treats I should give to my border collie per day. she weighs about 22 kgs.

  • VioVet Staff

A loading dose is recommended for the first 4-5 days so your dog would intially need 6 chews a day reducing to 3 chews a day at the maintenance dose.
