What is Zylkene?
Zylkene® is the only veterinary supplement formulated with alpha-cazosepine, a natural ingredient derived from bovine hydrolyzed milk protein that has clinically proven calming properties to help relax cats and dogs. It acts on inotropic GABA receptors and decreases stress reactions within 90 minutes of taking. In chronic cases, the decrease in stress reactions will not be immediate, but the first effects are generally observed in the first fifteen days. In seeking to explain the infant’s relaxation after feeding, a team of French scientists discovered in breast milk a molecule with soothing properties: alpha-casozepine.

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.
