ANNOUNCING A NEW MEDICATION FOR NOISE PHOBIA IN DOGS!!!
We are very pleased to announce that we are now carrying Sileo, a new medication for use in dogs with noise or storm phobias. This medication provides antianxiety relief without the excessive sedation that comes along with so many other drugs. It is an oral gel that is quickly absorbed into the system & provides relief for 4 - 6 hours. Doses can be safely repeated if needed. For best results, it should be given 30 - 60 minutes before the storm / noise issue. However, your dog will still gain some benefit from immediate dosing after his anxiety has been triggered, unlike other anti-anxiety drugs. It is compatable with other medications, such as Prozac (fluoxatine), clomipramine, or amitriptyline.
Sileo is indicated for dogs that have anxiety caused by noises, including fireworks, thunder, gunshots, passing cars or trucks, screaming children, barking dogs, or even normal household noises. If noises make your dog's separation anxiety worse, this may help. If your dog stresses going to the groomer because of the sounds of the clippers or dryer, Sileo may ease the stress.
Sileo is available in a multi-dose syringe. The number of doses per tube will depend on your dog's weight. The cost is $30 for a 3 mls syringe.
IF YOUR DOG IS CURRENTLY TAKING EITHER ACEPROMAZINE OR ALPRAZOLAM FOR NOISE / STORM PHOBIAS, CALL US, 333-1122, ABOUT SILEO!!!! Dr. Johnson, our resident behaviorist expert, will be more than happy to talk to you to determine if Sileo is a better alternative for your dog. If you have friends or family members who have dogs who suffer from noise anxiety, pass this along to them.
