nerves and phobia

Phobias, anxiety and nervousness can make life difficult for both pet and owner. A robust nervous system enables animals to cope with new or stressful experiences and to deal with life in our rather hectic world.

For a range of problems including noise phobias, over excitability, separation anxiety, timidity, senility and for show or obedience training Dorwest uniquely formulated medicines and supplements can help your pet to cope with these issues without sedating them and so are helpful for a wide variety of situations and behavioural conditions.
