Zylkene is a completely natural product that is used to calm anxious pets without the drowsy hangover effects that pharmaceuticals such (as diazepam-Valium) might have.
Both dogs and cats can suffer fear or anxiety due to stressors like thunderstorms, fireworks, moving home, travel or staying in a boarding establishment. 

Zylkene capsules are a complementary supplement designed to help cats and dogs manage stressful situations. Zylkene is an all-natural, non-sedating, nutritional supplement, not a Pharmacutical product. It contains a natural product derived from casein, a protein in milk, that is well known to promote the relaxation of newborns after breastfeeding. 
Zylkene is palatable and easy to give: simply mix with food or give the whole capsule. It can be given daily and is both preservative and lactose free.
* Zylkene capsules contain a palatable, water soluble powder that appeals to both dogs and cats
* Zylkene capsules can be given whole or can be opened and the powder mixed with food, treat or liquids
* Water should be available at all times
* As Zylkene is taken orally, it is present wherever the pet goes, both inside and outside the house
Since its launch Zylkene has become a familiar product for veterinarians, behaviourists, nurses and pet owners world wide. It helps pets cope when facing unusual and unpredictable situations and can be used before occasions such as a change in their normal environment.
When to use Zylkene
Zylkene can help support dogs and cats in situations where they find they need to adapt their behaviour to cope. These can include kennel and cattery stays, moving house, the arrival of a new pet or baby, sudden noises such as fireworks, travel or festivities.
Many cats do not cope well in a multi-cat household, so Zylkene can help with the introduction of a new cat.
How to use Zylkene
Zylkene is easy to give in one daily intake. The capsules contain a palatable, water soluble powder that appeals to both dogs and cats. They can be given whole or opened and the powder mixed with food, treats or liquids.
Since Zylkene is taken orally and ingested, it is present wherever the pet goes, both inside and outside the house. Water should always be available to your pet.
FAQs
How long until takes effect ? Depending on the size of the animal and the source of the anxiety, It will take a couple of days for the full effect of Zylkene to be felt. For example, if you know there will be fireworks on New Years Eve… start your pets on Zylkene at least two weeks before and after. It works best when in the system for an extended period.
How long will Zylkenes effects last ? This again depends on the size of the animal and the severity of the anxiety. Zylkene isn’t a pharmaceutical product so you won’t witness a clear start and finish of the effects. You will observe a calm and confident demeanour over a couple of days.
Can I overdose my pets by giving too much Zylkene ? It is important to follow the directions on the pack to ensure your pet is getting the correct dose. Naturally you should discuss with your vet before changing the dose.
Are there any side effects from using Zylkene ? There haven’t been any reported side effects of Zylkene in the clinical studies that have been conducted on cats and dogs. It’s non-addictive, non-sedating, and doesn’t have any known drug interactions. Zylkene doesn’t have any lactose, even though it’s derived from milk. It does have hydrolyzed casein in it though, so if your kitty is allergic to cow milk products, they might not tolerate zylkene well. Some mild gastrointestinal effects such as soft poop have occasionally been reported from animal owners. These tend to resolve on their own. If you see your pets experiencing this after you’ve given them Zylkene, you can reduce the dose to see if that helps make a difference.
How does it work for cats and dogs ? The simple answer… It tricks the receptors in the brain so they reduce excitability (anxiety.) The not so simple answer…Alpha-casozepine (the main active ingredient) is a natural biological substance derived from a protein in milk called casein. Alpha-casozepine is similar in structure to GABA (gamma-Aminobutyric acid). GABA is an inhibitory neurotransmitter that helps to calm the brain. Alpha-casozepine binds to GABA receptors in the brain and therefore mimics the effects of GABA. Zylkene can be used on either a short-term or long-term basis.
NOTE:
Zylkene isn’t a magic cure-all. They will help manage the symptoms of stress and anxiety. We recommend using in conjunction with a Thundershirt for cats and dogs or look at addressing the cause of the stress.
