What is Zylkene?

Zylkene capsules for dogs and cats is a natural product designed to manage stress in dogs and cats. It can also be very useful in helping animals to adapt to any changes that may happen throughout their lives. Any change however big or small can be very stressful to an animal. This may include new babies in the family, moving house, putting them into kennels or cattery, introducing a new pet to the household or even small events such as moving furniture.
It can be used in animals of all ages whether its puppies settling into a new home or older cats getting used to a new family member.

How do I know if my pet is stressed?

Some of the common signs of stress in an animal include: excessive grooming, change in demeanour, house soiling, increased restlessness or a reduced interaction with the owners. Obviously one of these signs on their own may not mean the animal is stressed but if a number of these are all happening at the same time then stress may be the main cause.

How do I administer Zylkene easily?

The capsule needs to be given orally. We do understand that administering medications to some animals may be difficult so the capsules can be opened up and the powder can then be sprinkled onto some food. Most animals will enjoy the taste as it has a ‘milky’ taste and therefore are often happy to eat it on the food. Some animals you may find will be happy to lick the powder off a plate on its own. The powder is water soluble and can be mixed with water, milk or gravy which is sometimes easier for cats.
