Feliway is a synthetic copy of the feline facial pheromone used by cats to mark their territory as safe and secure. By mimicking the cat’s natural facial pheromones Feliway creates a state of familiarity and security in the cat`s local environment.
As a result Feliway can be used to help comfort and reassure cats while they cope with a challenging situation and help prevent or reduce the stress caused by a change in their environment. The development of Feliway created a new field in veterinary medicine: Pheromonatherapy.
Feliway is available in 2 convenient forms: an electric diffuser and a spray.
