TVM, the animal health company, is pleased to announce that it is the new UK distributor of Sileo™, making it the latest addition to its behavioural range, which also includes Alphazium TT and Copro-Nil.
Sileo™ is a rapid onset medication which has been approved for the alleviation of noise related anxiety and fear in dogs .
Administered between the dog’s cheek and gum at the dose of 125 mcg/m2, Dexmedetomidine is absorbed across the oral mucosa, delivering a micro-dose at approximately 1/4 of the IM dose and is given as soon as the dog shows signs of anxiety or fear, or when typical triggers of fear are detected by the owner. Re-dosing of up to four times is possible with at least two hours pause between doses.
The new, practical, dial-to-dose syringe makes the administration of the product easier, and the redesigned packaging contains a QR code which links to an instructional video for owners.
Emma Hancox, Veterinary Advisor at TVM, explains:
“Up to 50% of dogs suffer from noise anxiety, which can be extremely distressing both for pets and their owners. While many people associate their pet’s anxiety with occasions such as bonfire night, noise-anxiety can apply to everyday noises such as vacuum cleaners and lawnmowers and by social events or parties, which could have a much greater impact on the dog’s everyday welfare. Sileo™ is an innovative medication approved for the alleviation of noise related anxiety and fear and will be a valuable addition to our range of companion animal behavioural products.”
