Description

Stress can hurt your horse’s health, so help keep him calm and comforted during stressful times with the Vetoquinol Zylkene Equine Behavior Support Horse Supplement Powder 2000 mg. The non-drowsy formula uses alpha-casozepine, a natural ingredient found in cow’s milk, to help balance the stress reactions of horses safely and with no tranquilizing or sedating effects. Milk-sourced alpha-casozepine is known to promote relaxation in babies, and it works in a similar way in an adult horse or pony, giving him a sense of comfort and contentment to help him cope with stress or adapt to new situations. It’s perfect to help horses adapt to stressful situations such as new environments, loading and travel, vet visits, and during weaning, stall rest, and social regrouping. It’s also great for stress-related behavior problems and behavior management. Plus, it’s free of lactose and preservatives, making it ideal for sensitives, and contains no prohibited substances.

Key Benefits
  • The only veterinary supplement formulated with alpha-casozepine, a natural cow’s milk protein known to effectively help relax horses and ponies.
  • Non-drowsy formula provides a sense of calm while maintain mental alertness, without tranquilizing or sedating effects.
  • Perfect to use for all stressful situations your horse may encounter, on or off the farm, and is backed by research for behavior management.
  • Free of lactose and preservatives, so it’s ideal for horses with sensitives; chosen by veterinarians and dog behaviorists for short-term or long-term use.
  • Easy to give once daily at meal time, with an apple flavor that most horses love.

    Takes the edge off

    By WTBuffChick on Jul 30, 2021

    My mare can get more sensitive when she travels to new places, especially after a tire explosion on the trailer that damaged the side of the trailer earlier this year. I administer it as directed, beginning 3 days before we travel and throughout the show. Zylkene takes the edge off so that she isn’t anxious in the trailer or in the stalls as shows. She does not scream when she was alone even when she is in heat, and does not require as much time to be worked down as she does when she doesn’t have it. This also helps to keep her from getting sore and fatigued. While working your horse down is a normal part of competition, working them until they are too sore and exhausted because they get fractious My mare can get more sensitive when she travels to new places, especially after a tire explosion on the trailer that damaged the side of the trailer earlier this year.

This also helps to keep her from getting sore and fatigued. While working your horse down is a normal part of competition, working them until they are too sore and exhausted because they get fractious from other horses or scary arenas isn’t realistic or fair to them. I think some users expect a sedated effect where the horse becomes dull, which is unrealistic for a non-sedative product. Zylkene takes the edge off so that the horse can stay focused on what they are doing rather than everything around them. My mare is genuinely quiet and relaxed so that the entire show experience is positive. She’s a picky eater that won’t eat apples, carrots or any kind of horse treat, and there was no problem getting her to eat this with her grain. … more

    It Works!!

    By Linda on Jul 26, 2021

    I tried this on my horse prior to our last horse show. (We had been to a show two weeks previously and he was way too spunky. My ride consisted of hanging on for dear life.) I mixed the packet of powder in his grain on Thursday, Friday and Saturday mornings. We showed late Saturday morning and he was a dream to ride. This did not make him lethargic at all; he was alert and had his typical English stride. He listened to me. I don't care what it costs. It works. (Besides, an accident with broken ribs and collapsed lung will cost you more....) I highly recommend it (even gave three packets to a friend to use on her spirited horse).

    Wonderful Product

    By Suemcd on Sep 13, 2021

    This product has made a huge in difference in my horse's anxiety level as he is on stall rest for a tendon injury. He is able to stand quietly for most of the day now and allow the healing to occur. Chewy's price is the best as usual!

    didn’t notice a difference

    By laurel on Jun 22, 2021

    Bought it to help get my gelding to load into a trailer. It didn’t help he acted the same way he always does. He also still acted terrified of the fly spray. I couldn’t tell any difference.

    Best product ever

    By Ariel on Mar 3, 2021

    This has helped my mare in ways I can’t even explain. She has thus innate sense of calm. My vet recommended and it has really helped us in our training!

    maybe it worked too well?

    By quarterhorsemorgan on Nov 16, 2020

    I tried this on my fidgety, unreliable quarter horse to see if it would calm her down for my young neighbor to be able to handle her better. She seemd more relaxed; not nipping at her pasture mate and more approachable for tacking. However, when my friend rode her, she said she acted as if she was overmedicated-would wander off gait and then jerk back into the gait again. Then when she was going downhill she pooked so badly my friend fell off-this has never happened in the 4 years we have had her. So I am not using the medication for now. I am going to have a good equine dental exam to make sure that is not the problem because she has trouble with bits.

    Very Helpful

    By Horsemama on Jul 27, 2019

    While not inexpensive this seems to be doing the trick for our 5 year old thoroughbred that has been on stall rest for 4 months. We tried some other supplements prior to this one but have had the best results so far with this. It seems to have taken the edge of for him and he is not getting wound up over every little thing like he was previously.

    Love this stuff!

    By Jennifer on Aug 29, 2019

    my herd bound, hot mare is now happy in her work and able to focus on the job at hand. Unfortunately it is now a prohibited substance with USEF, so they recommend it be withdrawn 7 days prior to competition.

    No noticeable difference

    By Farmerjane on Jul 9, 2019 top500Contributor

    Firstly let me say that I tried this on two mares that become frantic when separated so did not expect much. There are no instructions other than give 2 packets daily based on weight so added to their feed every morning for 1 week. At 2 packets a day for $120.00+ one hoped for miracles. Maybe a bit calmer but honestly not enough to notice.

    Great product

    By Happyhorse on Jun 18, 2019

    I was so happy to find this product available at chewy. It is the perfect remedy for a horse who doesn’t want to be separated from his herd buddies.
