A stressed cat is a miserable cat, and whether it is in your home or during a visit to the vet, dealing with an anxious feline friend can make us just as anxious too! Fortunately there is a way to help your cat's stress levels in most of these situations.
A variety of situations can lead to a stressed cat, including a new home, a new resident or new pet among other things, making your feline friend fairly miserable.
Likewise, many people put off taking their cat to the vet as they feel it is just too stressful. As a result your feline friend doesn't get a look over as often as they should and inevitably health problems go unseen. Dental disease, heart disease, kidney disease and more can sneak up on your cat slowly, often without you noticing before you have a sick cat and a hefty vet bill!
Thankfully there is a way you can help reduce the stress associated with vet visits. By using a pheromone spray in the cat carrier your cat will feel more safe and secure. The pheromone spray is the same pheromone cats release when they feel chilled out and happy. We also recommend spraying it on a towel and covering the cat carrier to help your cat feel safe and avoid them making eye contact with patients of the canine variety!
For use at home, the pheromone is also available as a diffuser and this is useful for cats that are having anxiety issues at home, such as during rehoming or when your are introducing a new pet or even a new baby. The diffuser can also help with toileting problems associated with stress, loss of appetite, marking and scratching. Plus, refills are available to make it even more affordable to keep regularly in your home.
