The next few weeks are always a bit chaotic, especially for our pets. Halloween often sees a whirlwind of visitors coming to the door and a lot of activity out on the streets. Then come the fireworks (and often the fireworks come a lot sooner than expected!). The loud whizzes, screeches, fizzes and bangs combined with bright flashing lights mean pets either get scared or over excited, or a mixture of the two.
As pet owners it can be a stressful time, dealing with barking, whimpering and worried pets is never easy, but it’s worse for the animals. They don’t have a clue what’s going on! There are some great products on the market that can be used with dogs and cats to help them remain calm.
Adaptil Diffusers are plugged into a socket in your home and can be a useful tool in helping dogs to relax. When turned on the diffusers releases a synthetic copy of a pheromone that naturally relaxes and appeases the dog.
Feliway is made specifically for cats but it works in a similar way to the Adaptil diffuser. Plug-in the diffuser and the synthetic copy of the feline facial pheromone are released into the room. It helps cats to feel secure and can alleviate stress.
Both the Adaptil and the Feliway are suitable to use to help pets deal with firework anxiety and reduce overall stress. If you’d like to start preparing for all the fun activities and help your pets cope with the excitement we recommend trying the diffuser in your home. They last for up to 4 weeks and it’s a good idea to start using them now. That’s why we are currently offering our customers 10% off both the Adaptil and Feliway calming products on our website for a limited time.
