Horses, like humans, experience apprehension and stress in certain situations. Some degree of stress is normal, however if stress becomes excessive it can lead to behavioural problems. In the wild, horses live out in the open, grazing throughout the day and are part of a herd with a structured hierarchy. Modern day conditions for horses are usually far removed from this way of life and can be difficult to adapt to.

How do horses react to stress?
Most horses with react instinctively in the face of perceived danger to escape or flee from the threat and protect themselves. If they are unable to get away, they may respond with aggression. Horses that are stressed over a prolonged period of time can develop behavioural problems such as box walking, weaving or a change in temperament.

What can I do for my horse?
If you think your horse may be showing signs of stress, first contact your veterinary surgeon who will be able to tell you if there is a medical reason for the behaviour. Your vet will also be able to discuss management options with you, which may include training or environmental changes.

What is Zylkene Equine?
Zylkene Equine is a natural product, derived from the milk protein casein, which has been developed to help horses and ponies overcome difficult or stressful situations.

Zylkene Equine has not been associated with side effects such as sedation at the recommended daily intake.

Zylkene Equine is manufactured to human pharmaceutical standards (GMP) and is:
  • Hypoallergenic

  • Preservative free

  • Lactose free

How do I use Zylkene Equine?
Zylkene Equine is an apple flavoured, easy to give powder. Mix the contents of one sachet into your horse's feed once a day. Horses over 500kg bodyweight will require two sachets given once daily.

For anticipated stress such as travelling, teeth rasping or a change in environment, start Zylkene Equine from two days prior to, and for the duration of, the stressful event. If your horse requires injectable sedatives administered by your veterinary surgeon, Zylkene Equine is not a suitable alternative.

For chronic behavioural problems, Zylkene Equine can be used on a continuous basis. Your horse's behaviour should be re-evaluated after a 20 day course and, in consultation with your veterinary surgeon, the daily intake can be modified if required.

Testimonial “Alfy, my Anglo Arab gelding, is highly strung and struggles to cope with life calmly. To Alfy, stress is being stabled or being turned out alone, vet/farrier/dentist visits, travelling, competing, changing stable etc. Basically any change! Alfy reacts by weaving or box-walking aggressively, throwing himself about, charging around the field, shaking, vocalising and sweating. Herbal calmers have had no effect. Within 2 weeks of giving him Zylkène, he would remain calm when exposed to minor stresses and his reaction to major stress was much less extreme. Since starting Zylkène, Alfy is much more able to cope with everyday life and we are both much happier and relaxed.” - Katie Todd BSc RVN AI

“My mare is the typical highly-strung, over-reactive Thoroughbred, who is scared of her own shadow, and therefore not always pleasant to hack out. I tried her on Zylkène for two weeks and was amazed at the difference. One of the first things that the yard manager commented on was how relaxed and cuddly she had become in the stable, and how much less reactive she was to handle. As a rider I definitely saw a reduction in her spooking on hacks. All in all I felt that Zylkène was a great success, and as a rider/owner would not hesitate to use it again for the next stressful time.” - Sally Schroeder BVetMed MRCVS CertSCVA
