A licensed herbal medicine for the symptomatic relief of anxiety, nervousness, excitability and travel sickness, and an adjunct in the treatment of epilepsy in dogs and cats. The ultimate herbal combination in a coated tablet, invaluable to calm and relax dogs and cats suffering from excitability, apprehension, phobias or hyperactivity.

In cats, it is also effective in the control of territorial spraying by keeping the cat relaxed and so reducing the urge to mark territory. This is more often a problem in neutered males but is a behaviour that can also be found in dominant females also.

Under veterinary supervision Scullcap & Valerian tablets are used in the control of epilepsy, often in conjunction with orthodox anti-convulsant drugs.

Not recommended for pregnant or lactating females.


  • It's a licensed medicine
  • Effect for sufferers of noise phobias
  • Helps to calm dogs that are scared of fireworks, thunderstorms or gunfire
  • Does not cause drowsiness or impair normal behaviour or performance
  • Ideal for nervous travellers who just need to be settled for car journeys
  • Ideal if new surroundings, situations or people cause apprehension or anxiety
  • Valerian - is a nervine, anti-spasmodic and relaxant. It has sedative effects on the nervous system but not on the muscles
  • Mistletoe - is widely used in Europe, it helps circulation and relaxes the nervous system
  • Scullcap - contains a number of valuable compounds including those which belong to the GABA receptor to reduce anxiety

Easy to administer
Sunday, 7 October 2018  | 

Easy to administer as these tablets are smaller. Possibly quite palatable too as I put them in her bowl and she gobbled them up when normally she would touch anything that isn't her food.

Excellent result on car journeys

Poor Lucy would be sick and drool in any car journey even after only 10 minutes. She's been on these tablets 2 a day for 2 weeks. The first week we didn't go in the car. The second week we managed 10 mins perfectly fine. I'm really pleased. She has turned a huge corner in car travelling. We can do half an hour now. She's a whippet so quite squeaky anyway but is much more settled. Very pleased. Great value. Thankyou.

5***** Rating from me!!
Monday, 2 October 2017  | 

I purchased the Firework Combo Pack for my two Staffordshire bull terriers. I started them on the tablets around 2 weeks before the local and very loud display which then didn't cause them any distress this year! I would highly recommend this product to anyone! Having tried most other things, this seems to be the only thing to have worked!! 5***** Rating from me!!
