Senility in Dogs & Cats

As dogs and cats reach the latter years of their life, symptoms resembling senility can sometimes occur, which result in a change of behaviour. This can be intensified by many factors, such as a reduction in sensory function, for example deafness or blindness. Animals that are affected can feel they have lost their role and function as they become older and less active and this is very often seen in working dogs.

Senility can lead to severe anxiety, a reluctance to settle, lack of appetite, random barking and other resultant symptoms.

Scullcap & Valerian Tablets will help to relax and relieve anxiety and provide the animal with a calmer outlook. This medicine should be given at a dosage rate of 2 tablets per 5kg bodyweight daily for an initial period of a month, after which it may be reduced to half this amount unless the condition worsens, when the higher dose should be reintroduced and may be continued indefinitely if necessary.
