To prescribe for short-term use: Begin administration of Zylkene 1-2 days before the anticipated event or change in environment. Some animals may need earlier administration (5-7 days). Administer Zylkene before the pet can anticipate the change in environment or event.
To prescribe for long-term use: Administer Zylkene for 1-2 months and then reassess the dog or cat. A pre-exposed animal may take longer to respond to Zylkene. Association with a behavior modification program and environmental management may help in these situations.
