New pheromone wipes can be used in cat carriers to decrease stress during car rides.
You’re a responsible pet owner. Your dog gets their monthly dose of heartworm prevention. You put Advantage Multi on your cat every 30 days to prevent fleas and intestinal parasites. You’ve bought more Red Sox and Patriots merchandise for your pets than your children, and you always bring the dog to the veterinarian annually.
But then there’s the cat…
You want to bring the cat to see the QVVH veterinarians, but then you start remembering Fluffy’s last visit. First, there was finding the cat. Did she get a notification on her iPhone that her visit was today? How did she know to hide in the deepest corner of your basement? Then there’s the carrier. You know you’re going to have to go to the doctor yourself after the fight Fluffy will put up about getting pushed into the plastic box of doom. Oh, and next comes the car ride. You’ll turn the radio up louder and louder, but nothing will drown out the woeful screams that Fluffy will unleash for the entire 17.5 minutes it takes you to get from Putnam to Danielson.
This is where Feliway wipes come into play. The QVVH staff has years of experience carting around their own cats, and we all know that it is not easy to do. This stressful situation isn’t enjoyable for anyone involved, and it’s causing many cat owners to skip the vet. Your cat’s annual care is very important, and we hope Feliway will help your cat to get the care they need.
Feliway’s website explains: 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.
The new Feliway wipes are easy to use on the inside of a clean carrier. At just $1.75 (plus tax), they are a cost effective way to help get your cat the invaluable veterinary care they need.
