Feliway Spray 60ml
Feliway® is a synthetic copy of the feline facial pheromone, used by cats to mark their territory as safe and secure.
By mimicking the cat’s natural facial pheromones, Feliway® creates a state of familiarity and security in the cat's local environment.
As a result, Feliway® can be used to help comfort and reassure cats, while they cope with a challenging situation and/or help prevent or reduce the stress caused to a cat during a change in their environment.
When to use Feliway Spray?
The spray is ideal for scratching, spraying, going to the vet and cattery. Or as support to the Feliway Diffuser, apply the Spray to your furniture, doorways, cat-flap, windows sills and to other prominent objects within your home.
How to use the Spray?
- Shake the bottle & apply the spray daily.
- Wait 15 minutes before letting your cat near sprayed area.
- Do not spray directly on your pet.
|Indication||Feliway Spray helps to stop and prevent urine marking, and to settle and calm cats in unknown or stressful environments (carrier basket, cage, car, holidays, new house, new companions). In addition to urine marking, reactions expressed by cats to stressful situations that may benefit from the use of Feliway Spray include vertical scratching, loss of appetite and a reduced desire to play and interact. Feliway Spray may also be recommended by veterinarians or behavioural specialists for other specific cases.Urine marking involves a well recognised behavioural sequence where the cat: selects a vertical surface, paws at the ground, turns its back to the surface, lifts its tail to a vertical position while remaining standing, and sprays the surface with a horizontal jet of urine. The cat may perform this behavioural sequence of urine marking during a period of sexual activity, and following an event that changes its environment or is otherwise perceived as stressful by the cat. Urine marks produced in this way are characterised by a strong smell even though the quantity of urine deposited each time is usually small, and they are found at about 20 cm above the floor.If a behavioural problem is due to the cat feeling fearful or stressed then Feliway will help reduce this behaviour, especially if used in conjunction with behavioural modification therapy. If the problematic behaviour is unrelated to stress, Feliway will have no effect.|
|Actions||Pheromones are chemical messengers used for communication between members of a species. The pheromones emitted by one individual can affect and change the behaviour of other individuals of the same species. When a cat feels safe in its environment, it rubs its head against the furniture, the corners of walls or the bottom of curtains, and leaves facial pheromones behind. These pheromones convey a message of well being, calm and the absence of stress, resulting in a significant reduction in unwanted behaviour such as urine marking, vertical scratching etc., and helping to resolve relational problems in multicat households.The pheromone in Feliway is a synthetic copy of the familiarisation facial pheromone that cats use to mark objects in their environment. It creates and maintains a state of well being and calm. The concentration of pheromone in the air at any one time is very small and, as pheromones are species specific, the familiarisation pheromone in Feliway will have no effect on humans or other animal species. Since pheromones are not systemically absorbed, the absence of toxicity and side effects makes them particularly beneficial to sick or aged pets, and allows for their safe use alone or in combination with psychotropic drug therapy.|
