Dorwest Scullcap & Valerian Tablets (100) - for stress and anxiety
I think it’s fair to say that many of us are more stressed than we usually are. Dogs can pick up on human stress even when we think we’re not showing any outward signs of being stressed.
Dorwest’s Scullcap & Valerian Tablets For Dogs And Cats are the only herbal product to be officially authorised by the Veterinary Medicines Directorate to help anxiety and nervousness.
Widely used as a treatment for noise phobias and fears associated with fireworks, thunder and gunfire, as well as for general excitability and hyperactivity, and at times like these, can help support your dog if your dog is exhibiting stress or anxiety behaviours that they don’t usually show.
Under normal circumstances, popular for use in travel-related anxiety, it calms and relaxes dogs or cats without causing drowsiness or sedation.
This licensed product is also used under veterinary supervision to control epilepsy, often alongside conventional treatments.
Q&As by Dorwest:
How do these work and will they sedate my dog?
They are not sedatives, in fact these are widely used for performance dogs such as agility and show dogs when they need to be alert and focussed. The herbs are nervines, that means they help to naturally relax the nervous system which reduces anxiety yet does not sedate muscles.
When do I need to start giving the products?
If preparing for a specific event, the more severe the phobia, the earlier you should start, up to a month in some cases. For moderate phobias, start around 10 days before the predicted worst night. However, even if you only start the day or so before your dog will still benefit.
