Feliway® is a synthetic copy of the feline facial pheromone, used by cats to mark their territory as safe and secure.
When a cat feels safe and comfortable in its environment, it rubs its head against the furniture, the corners of walls or the bottom of the curtains, leaving a substance called the facial pheromone. This pheromone is specific to cats and conveys a message of security and reassurance.
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/or help prevent or reduce the stress caused to a cat during a change in their environment.
The development of Feliway® created a new field in veterinary medicine: Pheromonatherapy.
Feliway® is available in 2 forms: as a spray and an electric diffuser.
