When noise hurts, SILEO can help.

Did you know that at least one in three dogs suffer from noise aversion? Your dog could be suffering in silence. But here’s the good news: There’s an at-home treatment that can help.

First, look for the signs. Does your dog react to loud noises (fireworks, thunder, construction noise or street noise) with any of the following behaviors?

Pacing, Trembling or shaking, Hiding, Restlessness, Cowering, Lip licking, Refuses to eat. Yawning, Excessive vigilance/hypervigilance, Vocalizing (whining or barking at the sounds), Brow furrowed and ears back, Owner seeking behavior and abnormal clinginess, Freezing or immobility.

When to give your dog SILEO

The first dose can be given:

  • Approximately 30–60 minutes before the noise event
  • As soon as your dog shows signs of anxiety or fear related to noise
  • Whenever you hear a noise that causes your dog to be fearful or anxious

It takes about 30 minutes to 1 hour for SILEO to take full effect, and it typically lasts 2 to 3 hours. If the noise continues and the behavioral changes recur, further doses can be given at intervals of 2 hours, up to a total of five times during each noise event, as needed. Do not give another dose of SILEO if your dog appears sedated from the previous dose.

SILEO gel comes preloaded in a multi-dose oral syringe

With each dose, SILEO is absorbed into the tissues of the mouth through mucous membranes. It should not be swallowed. If your dog swallows SILEO, allow at least 2 hours before applying the next dose.
