Dorwest Scullcap and Valerian
What situations are Scullcap and Valerian Tablets good for?
Dorwest Scullcap & Valerian Tablets help to support the natural calming pathways within the nervous system, making them useful in a variety of challenging situations:
- Noise phobias (fireworks/thunderstorms)
- New home/rescue
- Separation anxiety
- Habitual anxiety
- Canine cognitive dysfunction and associated confusion/disorientation
- Training/performance support
- False pregnancy – dog can become anxious and unsettled
- Hyperactive dogs
- Territorial urine spraying in cats
- Skin sensitivity in nervous dogs
- Conditions that are exacerbated by a heightened state of anxiety or nervous excitability
There are no quick fixes when it comes to successfully helping your dog to manage their anxiety or fears for the long-term. Often, gentle and consistent behavioural work and training are required to help them to respond more positively to stressful situations, which takes time. This process is likely to be more effective when your dog is more relaxed, and this is where Scullcap and Valerian Tablets can help.
When do I need to start giving the tablets?
Dorwest Scullcap and Valerian Tablets should be given daily, ideally splitting the recommended daily amount in two, to give half in the morning and half in the evening. For best results, we advise that they are used every day for a minimum of three weeks, ideally alongside gentle and consistent behavioural work and training.
By reducing anxiety levels to more manageable levels, Dorwest Scullcap and Valerian Tablets increase the likelihood that your pet will be more responsive to this training.
For ‘one-off’ stressful events, Dorwest Valerian Compound is a great short-term, quicker-acting option and can also be used alongside Scullcap and Valerian Tablets for a top-up, if needed.
