We know it can be stressful to experience and manage your pet's anxiety but Dorwest are here to help, every step of the way. Dorwest Scullcap & Valerian Tablets help to naturally relax your pet, with the active herbs naturally supporting the calming pathways within the nervous system, reducing anxiety without immobilising muscles or causing drowsiness. They don’t make pets dopey or wobbly – in fact they are widely used for agility and show dogs when they need to be alert and focussed, but calm. Scullcap & Valerian Tablets help tackle stress, fear and anxiety, whatever the cause, so you and your pet can relax, no matter what.

How do they work?

The specially selected ingredients in Scullcap & Valerian Tablets work together to help tackle stress, fear and anxiety in your pet:

  • Valerian - helps to support the natural relaxant pathways within the nervous system, without affecting muscles.
  • Scullcap - contains a number of valuable compounds including those which bind to the GABA receptor and reduce anxiety.
  • Mistletoe - helps to support the natural calming pathways within the nervous system and helps circulation.
  • Gentian - supports the other natural active compounds and helps maintain normal liver function.

What situations are Scullcap & Valerian Tablets good for?

Our 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

These really work! Wexford Shopper on 24 January 2016

I wasn't sure at first,but these do work. It seems to take time to build up in dog's system and also to get dosage right. I started with just 2 tablets as I wanted to give as low a dose as possible. After a week I increased the dose to 4 tablets and am now giving 6 tablets, 3 in morning and 3 in evening and the change in our very hyperactive dog has been considerable. I can now get her to focus so she is much easier to train. They do not make her drowsy at all, just much calmer which is what I wanted. Just give it time to get the dosage right. The Dorwest Valerian drops have a much more immediate effect and short-lived effect, they make her sleepy.

Very good value and they help. Ebony on 31 October 2008

Ordered the product and was informed it would be with me in 2 weeks - it actually arrived within a week which made me very happy. The product really works and have two dogs aged 7 and 5 that hate fireworks this product is a miracle,it helps to calm them down. Thank you

This has worked wonders. Eva Pittuck on 6 July 2008

Our dog got very stressed just knowing that we were going to leave him but this is much improved.

Some improvement Anne M on 27 April 2009

We have a very nervous 6yr old border collie and decided to try these tablets after seeing a notice relating to them in the vets waiting room. She is on her 2nd month of taking them and I think there is some improvement so will continue for several more months. The cost from Petplanet is much less that the vet charges, and everything from Petplanet is delivered so quickly too.

I bought these for my hyper 2 year old cocker spaniel. I was willing to try anything but unfortunately these tablets didnt make any difference.
