Zylkène is a novel product, which is proven to help manage stress in dogs and cats.
There are many common causes of stress for dogs and cats, as for their owners! Many animals (especially cats) find change difficult to deal with and Zylkène can help facilitate adaptation to change.
Common causes of stress include:
Arrival of a new baby or a new pet
A new cat moving into the outside territory
Sudden noise e.g. fireworks or thunderstorms
Cattery or Kennel stay
Many cats also find living with other cats stressful
Dogs and cats obviously cannot tell us how they are coping, but they can alter their behaviour. There are many different ways pets can show stress including:
Posture changes e.g. crouching, dilated pupils
Changes use of their environment e.g. changed resting place, reduced exploration or stopped visiting a certain part of the house
Changes in pattern of sleeping
Habits such as excessive licking and grooming
Changed interaction with humans or other pets – can be increased or decreased
Some signs are more easily recognised than other – cats in particular show stress by ‘withdrawal’ behaviours such as hiding more and resting on a higher surface e.g. top of wardrobe rather than a chair.
Some of these behaviours can also have a medical cause so it is very important to see your vet to you discuss if Zylkène is suitable for your pet.
Zylkène comes in capsules which are colour coded for size. It only needs to be given once daily, and is easy to give. Simply open the capsule, and mix the palatable powder with food or a treat. Zylkène has not been associated with any side effects.
Behaviour modification techniques can also help
your pet to deal with stress – ask your vet or
behaviouralist for advice.
