Keep Your Dog Calm with SILEO®
Does your dog hide under the couch during thunderstorms? Does she whine and have accidents in the house when she hears fireworks on the 4th or on New Year’s? More than 30% of dogs in the U.S. have what’s referred to as “noise aversion.” If yours is one of them, Acton Animal Hospital can help with SILEO®, the first and only FDA-approved treatment for dogs with noise aversion.
What IS SILEO®?
SILEO® is an easy-to-administer oromucosal gel that’s administered between a dog’s cheek and gum, using a syringe. Once administered, the gel is easily absorbed into the bloodstream to provide a calming effect, leaving your dog feeling relaxed but still fully functional. The active ingredient in SILEO® that creates the soothing sensation is called dexmedetomidine hydrochloride.
