Why Choose Zylkene Calming Supplement?

Most pets are likely to suffer from worry or stress at some point, especially when something disrupts their daily routine. Reasons for short term stress include fireworks, being home alone (separation anxiety), travelling, vet visits or being in a new place such as a kennel or cattery. Situations that may cause longer term stress include moving house, a new owner, or the arrival of a new baby or a new pet. Zylkene calming supplements are an ideal choice to help support your cat or small dog during these stressful situations. They contain a natural milk protein that is clinically proven to have calming effects.

  • UK's No. 1 Veterinary Calming Supplement*, widely used and trusted by vets
  • Suitable for stressful situations inside and outside the home so pets can feel calm wherever they are.
  • Contains a natural milk protein - with clinically proven calming effects. Delivering a calming message to the brain via the body's natural messenger system.
  • Easy to give capsule which can be given in multiple ways – great for fussy eaters.
  • Intended for short and long term use (1-2 days before and during the event or up to a month then review progress).
  • Perfect for helping pets cope when faced with separation anxiety, before occasions such as fireworks or a change in their normal environment

Tried Zylkene for 20 days with our cocker spaniel, she being excitable and very bark. No discernible difference noticed, she's off it now for past few days, no worse, no better. Pays your money, takes your chances, I assume it works for some dogs else it wouldn't be on the market still, but didn't hit the spot for our pet.

My Freyja is terrified of fireworks, so much that she starts fitting. Zylekene is the only thing I have found that calms her down but don't upset her stomach.

Zylkene & Youcalm

VioVet Visitor

Hi, can I use Zylkene and You calm at the same time? We have a very anxious Westie who is very sound sensitive. He has been taking Youcalm for 1 month and have noticed a small difference. But have been recommended to use Zylkene by a behaviourist
Many thanks

  • VioVet Staff

Yes these two products are safe to use alongside each other. They do both contain hydrolysate ingredients and so this might be quite a large dose of this particular ingredient though. I recommend choosing either Zylkene or Yucalm, if you wish to use other calmers alongside this then a spray/diffuser calmer like Pet Remedy or Adaptil can be used safely alongside.

Dosing

Martha Sahota

  • VioVet customer since 2021
  • From: Warwickshire, United Kingdom

Hi,

I tried both my dogs on this and it worked for one and not the other. My retriever is on the 450g tabs and my jrt was on the 75g (it didn't work for him). Can I use the left over 75g tabs for my retriever? He's 28kg and has 1 450g tab a day, but I have a fair amount of 75g tabs left that I'd rather use than throw away. How many 75g tabs would equal one 450g tab.?

  • VioVet Staff

Yes you can use your leftover 75mg tabs for your Retriever. At 28kg the dose is 1 x 450mg tabs which is equivalent to 6 x 75mg tabs.

How long is it safe to use for?

Sally

Was just wondering how long this is safe to use for? I have a cat who has become very anxious after our baby became mobile. We've used these for a couple of weeks after the vet prescribed them and have noticed a difference, but they never mentioned how long we could keep using them for.
Thank you

  • VioVet Staff

Zylkene can be used both short or long term. For long term use, please
give Zylkene to your pet for one month then reassess her behaviour and
continue if needed. We recommend speaking to your vet if there is a long
term problem to ensure there are no underlying causes and address any
underlying issues with behavioural therapy alongside Zylkene.

Different dosage small capsules vs chews?

M Schnauzer

We have a 6kg mini schnauzer. On the 75mg capsules recommended dose is 2 a day, but the 75mg chews say 1 a day up to 10kg? Is that correct?

  • VioVet Staff

The most up to date doseage for Zylkene can be found from the Zylkene website itself. I have pasted the dosing table below for your convenience. I can confirm that the capsule doseage is exactly the same as that of the chews.Screenshot 2021-01-12 at 15.58.24.png

About Zylkene

Sarah Braye

  • VioVet customer since 2018
  • From: Devon, United Kingdom

What would you recommend the length of time to give Zylkene to a very nervous and anxious dachshund? Thank~you

  • VioVet Staff

Zylkene is safe to use in the short and long term. I recommend giving the product for as long as is needed, for example if this is a firework phobia then give this daily throughout the firework season.
If the anxiety is not seasonal or preventable then I strongly advise you undertake behavioural training to help you dog not fear the issue in the first place. Long term calmers are safe but will not resolve the underlying fear

Gulping

Natasha Granville

Hello. I have adopted a ginger cat. She is 15. When she was a kitten she had her collar too tight. So now she gulps. Shes quite nervous too. Will this product help her with her gulping please? Thanks tasha x

  • VioVet Staff

Zylkene is a calming supplement and helps with mild fears/anxieties. It should help relieve some of the 'nervous' issues you are seeing and is worth trying for this. If the gulping is actually a behavioural problem related to previous trauma then it may help relieve this too. However the gulping could be due to permanent structural damage from the collar when your cat was younger, if this is the case then you are unlikely to see any improvement to the gulping specifically.

Mixing with another Supplement

Lizzy

I have a very anxious rescue dog. Started him on Maxxicalm tablets and feel like he is settling a bit, still early days. We are going to stay for 10 days with relatives and last time we took the dog away with us he found adjusting to a new house stressful. Can I give him Zylkene over this time as an extra boost? I notice both have Magnesium in them and don’t want him to have too much.....

  • VioVet Staff

The two products are relatively similar, due to risk of overdose I would not recommend using both together. However you can use a spray/diffuser calmer, such as the Pet Remedy range, alongside an oral calmer. I would recommend doing this instead.

Combination with other supplements

Amanda

Can I give zylkene with Seren-um? Two of my five cats are not getting on and both have been so stressed they have been spraying in the house. I've been using Zylkene for a few days and things are better but still quite tense. I also wondered about the valerian spot on for some quick calm.
Thanks for your help

  • VioVet Staff

You can use Zylkene with Seren-um since they work in different ways however I would suggest using only one at a time since you won't know which one is having an effect if you use both together. I would actually try a Feliway Friends diffuser over the calmers though. It has been clinically proven to reduce conflict between housemate cats.

Dosage

Sophie Matthews

  • VioVet customer since 2017
  • From: Shropshire, United Kingdom

what dosage would you recommend for a small terrier

  • VioVet Staff

I would guess that your dog weighs somewhere between 5-10kg in which case you would need to give 2 of the 75mg capsules per day.
