Feliway mimics the natural comforting facial pheromone found in cats.
|Analogue of Feline Facial Pheromones||10%|
|Excipients to||75 mL|
This innovative and patented product has some of the properties of feline facial pheromones. Pheromones are chemical substances secreted by animals to confirm their territory and to communicate with others.
The cat usually uses facial pheromones to familiarize itself with its environment. Surfaces that have been marked with these pheromones are recognized by the cat as familiar and comforting. Facial pheromones are deposited by rubbing the object with the side of the face. (Figure 1).
Figure 1: Facial marking
Among other properties facial pheromones will inhibit urinary marking when applied to an area.
The posture adopted for urine marking is shown in Figure 2. The marking involves a well recognized behavioral 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 sprays the surface with a horizontal jet of urine.
Figure 2: Urine marking
The cat will perform this behavioral sequence of urine marking: during a period of sexual activity following an event that changes its environment (new arrival: human or animal new object or new furniture new house or vacations or any other event perceived by the cat as stressful).
Urine marks produced in this way are characterized by a strong smell even though the quantity of urine deposited each time is usually small and they are found at about 20 cm (8 in) above the floor.
To stop or to prevent urinary marking and scratching by the cat. To comfort the cat in an unknown or stressful environment (cage car boarding new house etc.).
Feliway may be used in other specific cases and we advise you to discuss the use of the product with your veterinarian.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
DO NOT SPRAY FELIWAY ON ANIMALS.
The method of use should be modified in the following circumstances:
Sexually excited cats: When a male cat is marking in response to the presence of a female in heat (this is usually accompanied by continual calling), it is not necessary to apply Feliway on all prominent objects that could be attractive to the cat. In this case it is usually sufficient to apply Feliway only to the places marked which are usually near doors and windows.
Multiple cat households:
The risk of urine marking is greater when several cats are present in a household. The application of Feliway should be increased to two or three times per day on marked sites and once a day on prominent objects that could be attractive to the cat (Figure 3).
With elderly cats, Feliway may need to be used for 45 days in the manner described for multiple cat households then once every 2 - 3 days for as long as necessary.
Figure 3: Examples of prominent objects
The use of many cleaning agents and disinfectants will increase the likelihood of urine marking by the cat. It is essential that the soiled sites are not cleaned with bleaches or detergents or their derivatives.
