I've tried several different brands of these collars and found that this one works the best. Powder on collar can easily be shaken off upon opening. Is not a "safety" collar so best to keep kitty indoors under supervision while wearing. Works wonderfully and calms him down within 10-15 minutes. After the situation diffuses, I remove collar and place in ziploc baggies until needed again. I do use this collar with the Virbac Anxitane S (for cats). Very happy with purchase.
I have a 15-yr-old cat who had a very traumatic kittenhood and has always been a real "fraidy cat" despite my best efforts to make him comfortable. When he's stressed, he urinates on furniture, and over the years he has pretty much destroyed every chair and couch I've owned. He's always hidden under the bed or couch, coming out only at night or, rarely, if I'm lying down and quiet.
I put the pheremone collar on him a few days ago, and the transformation has been amazing. For the first time, ever, he comes out with the other cats and eats from the same plate, he lets me reach down to pet him without darting away, and he sleeps out in the open, on a chair, not under it. He's still shy, but he is absolutely a different cat.
I am also using a Feliway diffuser in the living room, and hoping that the combination of diffuser and collar will keep him calm and prevent more urination on the furniture. So far, so good....!
I was hopeful that this product would work for us since we have two neutered male cats who have been fighting. We put a collar on both of them but it seemed to have little effect on their sparring bouts. Our vet had originally recommended the spray version of this, but it didn't seem reasonable for our house size and all the area they travel.
Overall, it was disappointing that this product didn't work for us. Also disappointing that the collars were only effective for a month! At $20 a piece times two, times 12 months, that was going to become very expensive.
Maybe it will work for someone else, as I saw in the reviews, but not for us. : (
I have two cats that were not getting along. I bought these in the hope it would help. It did and it does! The change in these two cats in incredible. I told my vet about them and one of the techs bought one for her cat.
Our cat was very stressed. We were involved with moving and also we left him alone for 5 days at the same time. He was not having any bowl movements. Along with other things, our vet suggested getting the collar and it seemed to work in a short period of time and he seems to be on schedule and is content again.
We have tried many calming collars and they all fell in the category of "can't tell that it does any good". This collar however, was different. We have three cats, two of whom were really going at each other. After a day or two with the collar, the pace really slowed up and things settled down. I was given to write this because the time limit of it strength has been reached and we just had a "hissy" between those two cats. I will be ordering another couple of collars immediately. I am frankly impressed.
After a lengthy in-home recuperation, one of my cat's was not dealing well with my sudden re-employment. He demonstrated his anxiety by urinating in my sink while I was gone! I put this collar on him and the transformation was miraculous -- almost instantly, he visibly relaxed; he slept for like 3 hours; upon awaking, he was is old self again. It's been a month, and only one incident -- and that occurred when I had removed the collar briefly! I also have been using Feliway spray, but I truly believe this collar is the key. It is the "happy collar" and worth every cent!
I needed to calm my 2 kitties -- the big one was too rough with the smaller one, they freely roam the entire house, so the defusers and sprays were not going to work. First I got a Feliway collar and they relaxed right away and almost became friends. Then for some unknown reason it wasn't available anymore, I tried Sentrey and that was like putting on nothing, then the NatureCalm and things are better again - Thank you.
This collar was recommended by our vet-behaviorist. 2 of our 6 cats do not get along and these collars seem to help. These collars are part of the vet-behaviorist's program to help us get a more peaceful household, well worth the price.
I have a multi cat household and two high strung Bengals, live on a acerage and they all love the outdoors but when winter comes they spend more time inside and thats when the tension starts. Cabin Fever I guess you could call it. These collars settled them down immediatly. I wish I had tried them sooner.
Bought the first one at the vet. Leo, my Egyptian Mau, likes to scratch and damage his beautiful coat. The NatureCALM is my choice as I do not want to sedate him or give him pills that would change his personality. He does not mind the collar, and it really works.
By the way, I've done business with EntirelyPets.com for several years. Always prompt and efficient. I am very (VERY) pleased with your service and your business.
My cat, BZ, is a very anxious kitty. I have Feliway diffusers around the house and they help a lot BUT I have seen a marked improvement with the Nature Calm phernome collar. I had tried another brand and it smelled like some cheap perfume. Neither BZ nor I could stand it but this collar has no odor I can detect and it has made him so much more calm. I am very pleased with it.
Product does a good job. Leo, my 7 yr old Egyptian Mau, overgrooms and scratches. The vet game the choice of medicating him or trying the pheromone collar. He doesn't mind the collar, and his scratching is significantly reduced.
I'm happy with the results. I bought the first one at my vet, then found a better price at Entirelypets.com. Entirelypets.com is prompt and very service minded.
I've got two cats who grew up together who started fighting in the middle of the night on a nightly basis awhile back. Then they started marking and both are neutered. I got some of the Feliway spray and that helped stop the marking, but they're agressive to anxious behavior (we had some bats get in the house and they've both been jumpy and anxious since then) continued. Yesterday I got desperate after a full two hour, ongoing, through-out the house battle, so I called my vet who recommended this product. Costly though it is, I can't speak highly enough of it so far. We saw within an hour or so a definitely more relaxed stance in both cats and we had NO fighting or aggressive behavior at all last night. Finally a night of rest for everyone, including them. I'm hoping that this might help them renew their old buddyship again. I can't speak highly enough of what I've seen so far from this product.
