Zylkene

Help them Cope

Zylkène is a product that can help support dogs and cats in situations where they find they need to adapt their behaviour to cope. These include kennel and cattery stays, house moves, arrival of a new pet or baby, sudden noises e.g. fireworks, travel, vet or groomer visits and Christmas festivities. Many cats do not cope well in a multi-cat household. There are many ways our pets can respond to new and unpredictable situations and not all animals respond in the same way. Zylkène is palatable and easy to give; simply mix with food or give as a treat. Give just once a day. Zylkène is preservative and lactose free. 

Zylkène is a complementary feed for cats and dogs which contains a natural product, derived from casein, a protein in milk. It is a molecule well known to promote the relaxation of newborns after breastfeeding. Launched in April 2008, Zylkène has become a familiar product for veterinary surgeons, behaviourists, nurses and pet owners for use in helping pets cope when facing unusual and unpredictable situations or before occasions such as a change in their normal environment. - See more at: http://www.zylkenepet.co.uk/learn-more-about-

Common causes of pets not adapting to their environment

Even the most seemingly innocuous situations and experiences can trigger your pets’ uneasiness when they are in unusual or unpredictable situations. Different animals are not all susceptible to the same things, for example some dogs enjoy parties and the attention of many people all at once and some react very differently, hiding away. Some cats love being picked up and others definitely don’t. It’s when your pet needs to adapt to a new environment that may prove disrupting to your usual loving relationship with them.

Using Zylkene

Ideally Zylkène supplementation should be started a few days before required, for example before the fireworks season begins or before a kennel or cattery stay. Our pets are often clever at associating differences in our behaviour and relating them to an upcoming change in their environment or lifestyle, especially when the activity is repeated. These changes in our behaviour are known as ‘cues’. An example is when your dog or cat may have learned that the activity of packing a suitcase means a stay in the kennel or cattery for them.

This is a typical situation where Zylkène should be started the day before you get your suitcase from its normal storage place.

 

For long term scenarios such a new born baby into the family, Zylkène should be given for a minimum of 1-2 months or even longer if necessary.
