Calm your pets with pheromones
Did you know that relaxing scents can have a calming effect on our pets? While scents like lavender and eucalyptus create a soothing impact on humans, pheromones like Adaptil (dogs) and Feliway (cats) can calm our furry friends. Find out how you can calm your pets with pheromones.
As with people, stressful situations such as a new home, new visitor, travel, etc., can cause our pets to exhibit out-of-the-norm behaviors such as urinating in the house, excessive barking or meowing, and destructiveness. Our pets aren’t being bad; these behaviors are simply how our pets lets us know they’re not entirely cool with the current situation.
Adaptil can create a sense of security, safety, and reassurance. Adaptil is a synthetic form of the pheromone that female dogs emit after they give birth that makes their puppies feel safe and sound. This pheromone is recognizable throughout life by dogs of all ages.
Feliway is a synthetic form of a cat’s F3 facial pheromones which they rub on surfaces they deem to be safe. Studies have found that Feliway helps reduces 90% of spraying on vertical surfaces (i.e. walls, doors, etc.). It can also help with stress-induced scratching.
