Dorwest Herbs: Dr Monkey Speaks Out About Firework Phobia

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Oct. 13, 2010) - Rockets and Catherine wheels may not be the only things creating a big noise this fireworks season. More cats and dogs need help to treat their phobias says the outspoken Dr Monkey, who believes that the lead up to the 5th November is a big deal for pets that suffer firework phobia. Dr Monkey, a nine year old Border Terrier from Dorset, will be offering practical tips and advice to pets and their owners on Facebook, Twitter and at, on behalf of Dorwest Herbs.

The company's 'Firework Phobia No Fear' campaign now in its fourth year, aims to raise awareness of the issues around noise and firework phobia, and support pet owners who own pets that suffer fears and phobias. Several years ago, Dr Monkey joined thousands of other cats and dogs and conquered his fears by taking Dorwest Herb's Scullcap & Valerian Tablets. The company sells over a million doses of their licensed Scullcap & Valerian Tablets and the supplement Valerian Compound in and around the fireworks season. Both can be used alongside other treatments or alone and they produce relaxation without causing drowsiness or disorientation.

Roly Boughton, Marketing Director at Dorwest Herbs explains, "Dr Monkey offers a genuine 'tea and sympathy' approach that comes from having battled his own firework phobia 'demons'. There really is no need for pets to suffer panic, fear and anguish during the firework season – they can be helped."

The demand for safe, natural treatments and quality preparations has meant that family firm, Dorwest Herbs is still growing after 60 years of producing veterinary herbal medicines and their experts are leading authorities in this area.

Pet owners can obtain a leaflet about the identification and herbal treatment of firework phobia, or buy Scullcap & Valerian Tablets and Valerian Compound from their veterinary surgeon, pet shop or direct from Dorwest Herbs Dr Monkey's take-home message is: DO go and ask the experts – your pet can be helped.
