Product Description

Sileo (Dexmedetomidine Oromucosal Gel) is the first and only FDA-approved prescription medication for the treatment of canine noise aversion. It is a synthetic alpha-2 adrenoceptor agonist. Each ml of SILEO contains 0.09 mg dexmedetomidine (equivalent to 0.1 mg dexmedetomidine hydrochloride). Because Sileo is formulated to provide a low dose of dexmedetomidine, the dog remains calm, yet fully functional, and is able to interact normally.
