Our top picks to calm your anxious pet

Lots of things can stress out your pets – house moves, trips to the vet – the list goes on. Fireworks however have to be one of the worst! It’s terrible to see our furry friends scared and anxious, luckily there are lots of great products out there that can help… 

For cats, try the Feliway range. It used pheromone therapy to manage your feline friend’s anxiety. The Feliway Classic Cat Calming Diffuser produces a scent (odourless to people and other animals) which is a replication of the pheromone that cats leave naturally when they are feeling comfortable in their environment.

Adaptil is the dog equivalent of Feliway, it uses a replication of the pheromone that mother dogs naturally emit to their puppies just after birth, to comfort them and reinforce the attachment between the mother and her offspring. Browse the range here.
