cherry has got a months supply to calm her down and help with training on her aggresive behaviour. vet reckons after 1 month we should have her back to normal as we have caught the behaviours early. He also recommended that we go back to agility as we havent had time to go for ages.
I think I rather like the new vet, focused on training and stimulating the dog.
He advsied me to carry on keeping her away from other dogs until the weekend to allow the zylkene to get into her sysetme then gradually reintroduce her to other dogs while focusing on reward based training. Spent nearly an hour with me and cherry (and the kids) and approves of rraw feeding. only down side is half an hours drive away.

I tried it once on a foster dog that had severe separation anxiety issues alongside a DAP diffuser and valerian tablets (this was a pretty traumatised dog) and can't say any of those had any effect at all. I'm all for systematic, positive reward training, save your money on the drugs and supplements!

My vet prescribed it for my mad kitten, it didn't make a blind bit of difference or the Feliway spray he sold me at the same time.

It doesn't hurt for you to try it now you've got it but I really didn't notice a difference (except of course to my bank balance). Kitten is still mad too.
