If your dog suffers from anxiety caused by changes at home, travel-related issues, noise phobias such as fireworks fear, or if your dog has general anxiety, Dorwest will come to the rescue!

Our licensed herbal medicine Scullcap & Valerian Tablets and herbal supplement Valerian Compound Liquid both calm and relax dogs and cats naturally. Herbs are gentle yet effective and these products are formulated to reduce dog anxiety by lessening activity in the nervous system rather than relaxing muscles. Herbal remedies for anxiety mean that pets can be relaxed and calm without sedating or affecting their normal behaviour.

See how our natural calming products have helped some of our customers in all types of situations…

General Anxiety

Rhodey’s been on the Scullcap and Valerian Tablets for almost a year now and we’ve seen such a huge positive improvement to his general quality of life. He was such a hard dog to take out due to being petrified of almost any changed variable in his routine which made it so difficult to be able to train positive associations into him. We’re now able to take him out on big adventures to new places and even stopping off to dog friendly cafe’s at the end of our walks, something we would never have been able to do before without a lot of barking and ending up with a very stressed dog! Although we still have to be very careful around new dogs and people, carrying a muzzle and putting him back on lead when we see anyone in the distance, he’s always surprising us when he doesn’t react or shows subtle stress signs he’s not used in a long long time making it so much easier for us to get him out of situations he’s uncomfortable in. I’d always recommend Dorwest and continue to use their products, its amazing to have found such an effective product that is natural too!”

Firework fear

“My Bernese, Fizz, usually sits on sofa shaking and whinging or tries to hide under the dining room table but this year, thanks to the Scullcap and Valerian Tablets she was quite happy chilled out on the sofa even snoring at one point! She didn’t bat an eyelid at them! I’m so pleased 🐶🐾”

– Fizz & Beth Sayer


“Since Monty was a puppy, he was very anxious in the car. It got to the point that every time we were getting ready to go out, he would hide. Using Valerian Compound helped him so much. I cannot say he enjoys the car ride but he much calmer and settled. Valerian Compound is completely natural and does not make him sedated and drowsy which is very important for me!”

-Monty & Michaela Boušková


“Ossie, our 4-year-old Welsh Collie, was rescued with his mum and siblings when he was just one week old. He has always been an anxious dog, despite socialisation as a pup, and developed his own quirks as he got older. He didn’t want to travel in the car, started getting separation anxiety, found visitors to the house very stressful and started pacing between the front door and window to keep an eye on what was going on outside.

Since putting him on Dorwest Scullcap & Valerian Tablets we have noticed a huge change in him, which has enabled us to teach him some coping techniques, such as heading to his bed for some chill time when visitors arrive at the door. The Scullcap and Valerian Tablets have worked wonders, helping him to relax, without zonking him out; I can now leave him while I head out to work for a few hours knowing he’s calm and his anxieties regarding travelling in a car are virtually non-existent. When we have an extra stressful event coming up I also use the Valerian Compound as a top up. He’s still the same Ossie but a whole lot happier and much less stressed!”

-Ossie & Sian


“I have two dogs, one is anxious and particularly suffers on bonfire night. These tablets make a massive difference to her. They help her stay calm and relaxed even during the fireworks. My other dog suffers from epilepsy and since being diagnosed has never gone more than 25 days without a seizure. Since I started giving her these tablets (alongside her usual epilepsy meds) she hasn’t had a seizure in nearly 50 days which is amazing! I am blown away by the difference they have made! I would highly recommend these tablets for anxious dogs and dogs suffering from epilepsy.”

-Noa & Georgia
