Frightened, anxious, hyperactive and stressed animals can be calmed quickly using this easy to give liquid. Dropped into the mouth, given on food or even just a few drops sprinkled on a pet’s bedding can result in a more amenable pet, so visits to the vet, travelling or moving house instantly become less stressful situations. Cats particularly love the smell of Valerian Compound, so administration really couldn’t be simpler.

The concentrated herbal extracts used in this liquid ensure that within just 30 minutes a noticeable change in behaviour occurs without causing drowsiness and the effects are quite short lived.

In situations that have a longer duration then we recommend also giving Scullcap and Valerian Tablets.

When faced with unexpected events like thunderstorms, Valerian Compound has a fast action and it can also be used in conjunction with Scullcap and Valerian Tablets in especially fearful situations and for anxious animals.

Phobias and nervous disorders can be really hard to deal with – both for pets and from their owners’ perspectives. Widely used as a treatment for noise phobias and fears associated with fireworks, thunder and gunfire, as well as for general excitability and hyperactivity, this herbal medicine is one of our best sellers.
Popular for use in travel-related anxiety and also for territorial urine spraying in cats, this licensed product is also used under veterinary supervision to control epilepsy, often alongside conventional treatments. Top tip – buy your supply of Scullcap and Valerian Tablets well in advance of fireworks night (there’s often huge demand around this time.)

How do these work and will they sedate my dog?

They are not sedatives, in fact these are widely used for performance dogs such as agility and show dogs when they need to be alert and focussed. The herbs are nervines, that means they help to naturally relax the nervous system which reduces anxiety yet does not sedate muscles.

Can I use the tablets and liquid together?

Scullcap & Valerian Tablets used daily provide better coverage and are ideal to start using in the lead up to Fireworks Night so they are already nice and relaxed before the scary noises start. Valerian Compound is quicker-acting and is perfect to use orally as a “top-up” and for unpredicted events such as a neighbours having a fireworks display or a thunder storm. It is ideal to put a few drops on a cloth on their bed to help them relax, cats love this especially.

When do I need to start giving the products?

The more severe the phobia, the earlier you should start, up to a month in some cases. For moderate phobias, start around 10 days before the predicted worst night. However, even if you only start the day or so before your dog will still benefit.

Capturing the essence of selected fresh green plants and their seeds, this formulation has natural anti-inflammatory, anti-histamine, anti-bacterial and pain relieving properties.
Its main uses are for the symptomatic relief of arthritis, skin and kidney disorders and as a mild diuretic to aid normal urinary elimination. In arthritic pets, this medicine relieves the pain of arthritis and improves mobility and it can also reduce irritation caused by various skin problems.
Green Releaf Tablets promote mild water loss, helping to maintain normal urine flow and pH (acid-alkali) balance. This can be helpful in cases of cystitis, urinary incontinence and leaky bladders that occur after spaying (neutering) or other surgery and in old age.

A rich source of minerals and other trace elements, this licensed herbal medicine is an ideal choice for pets that have lost coat condition or gained weight. It is most often used for the symptomatic relief of poor hair growth and pigmentation, and to aid in the treatment of obesity.
Concentrated kelp extract is used in these tablets for greater activity.  Fucoxanthin, a pigment found in kelp, has recently been identified as an aid to weight loss and Kelp Seaweed Tablets can be used to support a calorie controlled diet in overweight cats and dogs.

Fenugreek has anti-inflammatory properties and in this medicine it’s complemented by garlic, which as well as having antibiotic, antiseptic and anti-viral properties also contains anti-inflammatory compounds. As a result, this licensed herbal medicine is used to relieve the symptoms of arthritis but it can also be used for the symptomatic relief of minor infections, skin conditions and coughs.  It can be useful in pets with atopic dermatitis (eczema), or cystitis.
Given regularly at a maintenance dose, Garlic and Fenugreek Tablets can increase resistance to infections by supporting the immune system and are also given to promote general health. This medicine is often used alongside Mixed Vegetable Tablets, as together they have a synergistic effect, meaning together the effects are greater than if used individually

The best known herbal medicine, garlic has long been revered for its health giving properties, while being repellent to parasites. Trusted as an antibiotic, antiseptic, antiviral and to maintain a healthy circulation, its benefits are now both better understood and proven by scientific studies.
While garlic is a real all-round aid to health, this preparation is also a licensed herbal veterinary medicine used for the symptomatic relief of coughs and bronchial conditions.

The liver is a real powerhouse within the body – responsible for breaking down and detoxifying harmful agents and activating other substances essential for metabolism. It also stores nutrients and is important in immunity.
This pure preparation of top grade milk thistle contains high levels of silymarin that supports the liver and mops up free radicals that affect cells, so can be given at times when the liver needs extra support.
The core value of herbs used to maintain health is that every plant contains many compounds that are natural balancers. In this case the benefits of silymarin are complemented by other biological compounds found in milk thistle, so no other additives or blends are included in this beneficial supplement.

Intestinal disorders and digestive problems are quite common in pets, can be non-specific and may recur.

It’s also a good short term choice in animals experiencing bouts of diarrhoea and in the recovery period afterwards, providing relief from intestinal discomfort and for longer term recurrent problems.
