The product should be administered onto the oral mucosa between the dog’s cheek and gum at a dose of 125 micrograms/m2. The Sileo oral syringe is capable of delivering the product in 0.25 ml increments. Each increment is shown as one dot on the plunger. The dosing table provides the number of dots to be administered corresponding to the dog’s bodyweight.
The following dosing table provides the dose volume (in dots) to be administered for the corresponding bodyweight. If the dose for the dog is more than 6 dots (1.5 ml), half of the dose should be administered to the oral mucosa on one side of the dog’s mouth and the other half of the dose onto the other side. Do not exceed the recommended dose.

The first dose should be given as soon as the dog shows the first signs of anxiety, or when the owner detects a typical stimulus (e.g. sound of fireworks or thunder) for eliciting anxiety or fear in the respective dog. Typical signs of anxiety and fear are panting, trembling, pacing (frequent change of place, running around, restlessness), seeking people (clinging, hiding behind, pawing, following), hiding (under furniture, in dark rooms), trying to escape, freezing (absence of movements), refusing to eat food or treats, inappropriate urination, inappropriate defecation, salivation, etc.
If the fear eliciting event continues and the dog shows signs of anxiety and fear again, re-dosing can be done when 2 hours has passed from the previous dose. The product can be dosed up to 5 times during each event.
