This product knocked my cat out for 3 days. While he usually plays and follows me around he just lay still in one place vary getting up to eat and use the tray.. I gave him 1 capsule as recommended by the vet because he had been soiling inappropriately and no other reason was discovered. Maybe my cat is particularly sensitive to the components but I suggest starting on half a capsule just in case. After 3 days of irresponsive behaviour he finally seemed to be himself again and I rather mop pee than see him become a dozed up pillow. I was actually getting worried by then.
Works like magic! I was sceptical about this product but the glowing reviews made me try it. We are in the process of moving house and one of our cats is very sensitive to change. He started being aggressive towards our dog (unusual behaviour for him) and was generally restless and unsettled. As soon as the capsules arrived I gave him the powder from one 75mg capsule mixed with a little Lik-e-lix and fed it to him from my finger. The reaction was almost instant! He immediately settled down and went to sleep, and was much calmer during the rest of the day. I have been giving the capsules for four days now and the difference in him is really noticeable. I can't praise this product highly enough.
Two of my female cats have always been very nervous, one spent most of her days hiding outside and did not feel safe in the house, I believe she felt trapped. The vet recommend Zylkene and both cats have improved, in fact the cat who was afraid of the house now spends most of her time inside, even when we have guests (after the first initial flight reaction to the door bell). They have really made her life more relaxed; she will never be a lap cat and is still scared of her own shadow, but calms down a lot quicker than previously. I give them both one a day and I have recommend friends with very nervous pets to try them for a few weeks to see if they can help.
Zylkene is a wonderful product and I highly recommend it. My sibling cats were very neurotic and stressed, hated visitors, would spend days hiding in wardrobes and drawers, and began fighting aggressively. I contacted Cats Protection, where I adopted them, and asked for advice. Zylkene was suggested, otherwise I would have to rehome one of my cats. I am delighted to say I have two happy cats who no longer hide, accept visitors, sit on my lap, share the same bed and, apart from the occasional game of "tig" get on wonderfully. Needless to say I am delighted and the cost on Vetuk is substantially cheaper than the vet.
First used Zylkene when Millie went to have radio-iodine therapy for her thyroid problem. She was quite chilled out at going to the clinic for 2 weeks. Now she is a "senior" cat and some new cats have moved into the neighbourhood, she was apprehensive about going out. Zylkene has come to the rescue again, and Millie is once again quite laid-back about life, except for Sid (my mother in laws cat), she still wants to chase him out of our garden!!!
We had changes in our family and our eldest cat got stressed. Our veterinarian recommended Zylkene for him. After one week it was easy to see the change in his behaviour and after two more weeks he was back to normal! We continue giving one Zylkene capsule per day to him. What a great way to help your cat without any harm or side effects what so ever.
