Cat Travel and Pheromones

 

Cat in Carrier

We know that bringing your cat to see us can be stressful for both of you.  But, we also know that these visits, whether for an annual check-up or a specific problem, are important in maintaining your cat's health.

A product we have found that helps reduce the stress of travel is Feliway.  When a cat feels safe and comfortable in its environment, it rubs its head against furniture, the corners of walls or the bottoms of curtains, leaving a substance called the facial pheromone.  This pheromone is specific to cats and conveys a message of security, reassurance and well-being to a cat.  Feliway is a synthetic copy of the feline facial pheromone and is used to help cats feel safe and secure.

To ease your cat's stress of coming to see us you can treat your cat's carrier with Feliway about 15 minutes before putting him or her into it.  We carry both a spray and wipes.  By doing this your cat will feel happier and more secure in the carrier and it will make the travel less stressful.
