Zylkène is a complementary feed for cats and dogs that can help support dogs and cats in situations where behavioural adaptation is required. It contains a natural product, derived from casein, a protein in milk that is well known to promote the relaxation of newborns after breastfeeding. 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. Example situations 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.
Zylkène is preservative and lactose free.
Launched in April 2008, Zylkène is a product that can help support dogs, cats and horses in situations where they find the need to adapt their behaviour to cope.
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.
