Zylkene 75mg for Small Dogs and Cats
Zylkene is a non-medicated supplement for cats and dogs specially formulated to aid in the management of anxiety and stress. Since its launch, Zylkene has become an incredibly popular behaviour aid used by veterinarians, behaviourists, nurses and pet owners all over the world.
How does Zylkene work? Zylkene contains a natural product derived from casein, a protein found in milk. Casein is a molecule known for calming newborns during breastfeeding. This compound helps your pet adjust and cope when faced with unusual or unpredictable situations. It is ideal for use before stressful events involving a change in the environment. Zylkene is a palatable capsule and easy to give: simply break the capsule and mix the powder with food, or give the whole capsule. It can be given daily and is both preservative and lactose free.
Which stressful situations can Zylkene help manage? Zylkene can help reduce anxiety in any stressful situation, including kennel and cattery stays, moving house, the arrival of a new pet or baby, sudden noises such as fireworks or thunderstorms, traveling, or festivities. The signs of stress can be varied, and it is important to remember that not all animals will find the same situations stressful, or respond the same way. Even the most seemingly trivial situations can trigger your pets anxiety when they are in unusual or unpredictable situations.
