Zylkene is a calming aid used to help relieve stress and anxiety in cats, dogs and horses.

Zylkene can be used both short term or longer term, dependent on the source of stress. Stress in the short term may include a long journey, a stay at a kennels or cattery, or loud fireworks. Longer term causes of stress include moving house or a new pet or new baby being introduced to the home.

Zylkene is a food supplement made from a protein similar to that found in the mothers milk. The active ingredient in it is a peptide (a simple protein molecule) which is able to bind temporarily to certain receptors in the brain to encourage a sense of calmness.

Capsules are given once a day and are easy to give: they can be given whole or opened and sprinkled onto food (either wet or dry food). They taste milky, so are highly palatable and most animals take them well. Zylkene capsules are free of preservatives, hypoallergenic and lactose free.

If the capsules are being given short term (such as around fireworks season) then capsules should begin to be administered 1-2 days before the predicted stressful event or change to their environment. Long term it is advised that Zylkene are given daily for a month before reassessing the animals behaviour and continuing treatment afterwards if needed.
