If your dog suffers from anxiety caused by travel-related issues, experiences noise phobia 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…

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

“From previously having to be totally sedated whenever there were fireworks (which I hated), Maisie now has a combo of both the Scullcap & Valerian Tablets for dogs and the Valerian Compound paired with a thunder shirt and she now copes pretty well! As they are natural calming remedies for dogs there are no sedatives so happy dog and happy owner!”

-Maisie & Lucy Tyrell


“We travel around quite a lot with both our spaniels and while our little Dixie doesn’t mind it, our poor Springer Rosie would cry, shake, pant, drool and do anything not to get in the car. We have been using Dorwest Scullcap and Valerian a year or so now and the behaviour difference is amazing.

For short journeys we use the Valerian Compound for dogs on her tongue and bedding and for longer trips of several hours, we use the Scullcap & Valerian Tablets. She might never love the car, but she allows us to pick her up and often jumps in of her own accord now. She is much calmer throughout the journey, no crying and certainly not distressed the way she used to be!”

-Rosie & Jackie Millins-Horne


We got our dog, Theia, a Czechoslovakian wolfdog cross, when she was a puppy. She came from a terrible breeder who didn’t socialise her at all. She has been on Scullcap & Valerian Tablets for dogs for the past few years and the change in her is incredible. She is in no way ‘fixed’, but your tablets make life bearable for her. Thank you”

-Theia & Jem Walker

Noise Phobia

Scullcap and Valerian Tablets along with Valerian Compound made a huge difference for our miniature schnauzer Murphy. He is extremely noise sensitive, not only stressed by fireworks but any loud noise even noises on the TV can stress him. This photo of is Murphy during fireworks on New Year’s Eve.”

“I cannot tell you what a huge difference using the Scullcap & Valerian Tablets for dogs has made to our household! Our gorgeous rescue boy is very nervous and highly strung when faced with new things such as visitors, vet visits and especially loud noises. Fireworks night has been a nightmare for us and after trying all kinds of solutions, including veterinary prescribed calming tablets, we had given up hope that he would ever be able to settle at this time of year. And then we found Scullcap & Valerian Tablets for dogs and we were so pleased!

The stressed barky boy transformed into a calm loving bundle; he was still alert to the noises, but they were not causing him the usual distress and dog anxiety. Now we can use them to help him navigate the stressful world around him, and visitors, vets visits and other things that caused him to feel unsettled are now a much better experience for him – and his mood in general has changed too! Thank you so much Dorwest!!!”

-Duds & Gemma Haworth

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!”

-Rhodey & Shannon Dean

Scullcap & Valerian Tablets for dogs have really helped Smurf cope with life. When I rescued him, something as simple as a pair of wellington boots outside someone’s front door sent him into meltdown, let alone people walking down the road. The Scullcap & Valerian Tablets along with training have really changed his life.

He now competes at agility, even doing a display with the main arena at Crufts, and also does canicross with hundreds of people. He’s obviously still a work in progress but he is a completely different dog to what he was now we use Dorwest’s natural dog calming products. Thank you!”

-Smurf & Jenny Eades
