Zylkene for Cats and Dogs are natural pet de-stressing capsules to help manage stress in dogs.

Dogs obviously cannot tell us how they are coping with stress, but they can alter their behaviour. Any alteration in normal behaviour patterns may demonstrate that your dog is unhappy and may be stressed. Zylkene can help.

All pets can suffer from stress and it is often difficult to recognise that your pet is stressed, it may adopt a low posture and look agitated and more excitable than normal. However, sometimes the signs are more subtle and trickier to spot. Your dog may be reluctant to go to certain places, toilet training may breakdown - perhaps going indoors, it may start grooming excessively or vocalise. Zylkene can help with these periods of stress either on a short term basis or longer term as required.

Zylkene is not a traditional drug, rather made from a protein found in milk. This protein peptide which binds temporarily to certain receptors in the brain, cause a calming influence to your pet. It has undergone much research and has been shown to be effective in both dogs and cats with a taste which is readily accepted with no fuss. It can be given for shorter periods of time to cover a particular event or can be given longer term if required

Christine Halliwell

I have a very skittish cat who is scared of his own shadow at times but it is currently our youngest cat that scares the life out of him for no apparent reason except he doesn't like change. I gave him a single dose of Zylkene this morning and tonight he was back to his old self. I can't think of anything that calms quite like this product and I've been using it for years.

Zylkene is an excellent product. I give it to my cats when travelling in the car and also when I introduced a kitten to my adult cats. It does not make them sleepy, it just helps them to feel calm and secure. It can be given by mouth or added to food.

Sadly this had absolutely no effect on my nervous cat.

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.
