PetScoop: WSJ Reviews Scents to De-Stress Your Pets -- Feliway and DAP

funny pictures of cats with captions

Does your pet suffer from anxiety, whether from thunderstorms, vet visits, travel, or separation issues? Many loving pet owners wonder if calming animal pheromone products are effective. The Wall Street Journal examines these Scents to De-Stress Your Pets:

Veterinarians say that pheromones do work--but not all the time. "They work on some animals, and not others," says veterinarian Bonnie Beaver, executive director of the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists in College Station, Texas. "They work in some situations but not in others."...

Overall, pheromone therapy appears to be less effective than drug therapies, such as antidepressants, typically used on pets with behavior problems, Dr. Landsberg says. But he recommends trying pheromones first, since they are easier to administer and have no side effects.

Exactly the conclusion we came to in our own trials, in both senses of the word. Read our review last summer, Thunderstorms, Fireworks, Vet Visits -- 3 Remedies to Reduce Anxiety and Calm Your Pet. We achieved most success administering Behavior Modification Drugsicon with basically no nasty side effects. Cheaper than DAP and Feliway too.

According to the WSJ article, the most-studied cat product is the Feliway brand -- Feliway Plug-In Diffuser and Feliway Spray. For your dog, the DAP -- D.A.P. Dog Appeasing Pheromone Spray or in a relatively enclosed area plug in a D.A.P. Dog Appeasing Pheromone Electric Diffuser.

Sound Therapy for Pet Calming and Healing

seniordog.jpg

This time of year, routines change, company comes a-calling and our pets can be a little needier / grumpier than normal -- especially if they are injured, ill or getting older.

Soft, low music can create a pleasant, comfortable atmosphere for us all. Sound therapy is effective in calming jarred nerves and soothing health issues, both human and animal. Two great choices:

Medieval chant, ancient melodies and Celtic music create a serene and therapeutic audio-sensual experience. Non-metered, natural tones of the harp ebb and flow to bring about peace within. This music has helped those suffering from illness, injury and life's transitions.
