Naturally reduce your pets stress or anxiety with no drowsiness with Scullcap & Valerian Tablets, the natural way to help relax your pet. These tablets contain active herbs naturally supporting the calming pathways within the nervous system, reducing anxiety without immobilising muscles or causing drowsiness. They do not make pets drowsy, in fact they are widely used for agility and show dogs when they need to be alert and focussed, but calm.

These tablets work by using specially selected ingredients that 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.

Scullcap & Valerian Tablets are useful in a variety of challenging situations: Noise phobias (fireworks/thunderstorms), new home/rescue, separation anxiety, travelling, 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 and 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 & Valerian Tablets can help. It is recommended to give daily for a minimum of three weeks, ideally alongside gentle and consistent behavioural work and training. By reducing anxiety levels to more manageable levels, giving this supplement increases the likelihood that your pet will be more responsive to this training.


Administration: 1 tablet per 5kgs bodyweight daily – ideally splitting the recommended daily amount in two, to give half in the morning and half in the evening. When the stressful situation is at its worst, this amount can be doubled. Give the second administration 2 hours before dusk and maintain double amounts for as long as necessary.
