SILEO: A Treatment Option for Noise Aversion in Pets
Loud noises can be frightening to our pets. In the veterinary field, we call this “noise aversion” and we recognize that pets may react to this in a variety of ways. The summer months are often the most difficult for our pets as thunderstorms and fireworks may occur unexpectedly and cause anxiety and other symptoms. We are proud to introduce SILEO, the first and only FDA-approved treatment for canine noise aversion.
What You Should Know About SILEO
SILEO is an oral gel that can be administered between your dog’s cheek and gum using a syringe, allowing for quick and easy absorption into the bloodstream. Because SILEO is formulated to provide a low dose of the calming drug dexmedetomidine, your dog will remain fully functional and interact normally with the family, but in a calmer and more relaxed way.
This treatment option is only for dogs at this time, and it is an especially useful product for new puppies who are exhibiting signs of anxiety early on. Curbing anxiety in a young dog can help them to have a much calmer and happier adult life.
