Valerian Compound

Formulated to naturally help pets relax quickly in times of stress or anxiety
Calm your stressed, hyperactive or frightened pet quickly with our fast-acting Valerian Compound for dogs and cats. Containing pure extracts of three herbs in liquid form, it acts within just 30 minutes, with effects lasting for up to two hours. It can be dropped straight into the mouth, given on food or sprinkled onto your pet’s bedding to help make any event instantly less stressful. It’s non- drowsy and even our fussy feline friends love the smell, making it super easy to use.

How does it work?
Valerian helps to support the natural relaxant pathways within the nervous system, without affecting muscles. It doesn’t make pets dopey or sleepy–in fact it is widely used for agility and show dogs when they need to be alert and focussed, but calm.

What situations is Valerian Compound good for?

Fireworks, thunderstorms, travelling, showing, going into kennels or a visit to the vets can all be worrying for our pets, causing fear and anxiety. Valerian Compound acts quickly, helping you and your pet get through these events stress-free. It can also be used to restore calm in hyperactive pets.
Top-Tip: Try putting a few drops on a cloth on your pet’s bed to help them relax, cats especially
love this.

Is there a Dorwest product to help my pet’s anxiety longer term?
Yes, our Scullcap & Valerian Tablets are intended to be used daily and are ideal for long-term use or to start using in the lead up to known stressful triggers, such as Fireworks Night. They help your pet to feel nice and relaxed before the event. Our Valerian Compound is quicker-acting and is perfect to use as a ‘top-up’ for especially scary situations or for unpredicted events such as a thunder storm.

When do I need to start using Valerian Compound?
Our Valerian Compound is intended for short term use, as required. It is really fast acting, taking effect within just 30 minutes and lasts for up to two hours. For situations that have a longer duration or are especially frightening, we recommend they be used in conjunction with our Scullcap & Valerian Tablets.
