Using natural products is something that is extremely important to us when it comes to our three dogs. Not only are Dorwest Scullcap & Valerian Tablets an effective remedy, they are versatile in their use. The tablets been great in helping Lily (the boss of our house!) keep calm and focused in the run up to Crufts. They were also hugely useful in helping Peggy, our Romanian rescue, ease into a normal home life.

Probably the most impressive effect of this favourite in our house though has been around fireworks season. Poor Rodney suffered the most, with uncontrollable shaking and Peggy regularly took cover in her bed when the bangs started.

The Scullcap and Valerian Tablets allowed them both to keep a clear head during positive reinforcement training and the difference now is incredible. Rodney’s shaking episodes have drastically improved and Peggy is happy to be out of her bed and enjoy the evening with us when fireworks are going off. We can even have the back door open for short intervals!

Our top tip is to use the tablets from the start of October through to mid-January as this covers you for Halloween, Bonfire Night, Christmas and New Year. The joy of a natural product is that this long-term use is safe on the body too. Thank you Dorwest for your passion for animal health, you’re a staple in our dog cupboard!”  – Yasmin & Peggy, Rodney & Lily

Scullcap & Valerian Tablets naturally supports the calming pathways within the nervous system, reducing anxiety without immobilising muscles or causing drowsiness.
