Feliway Wipes Make Vet Visits Less Stressful for Cats

At The Drake Center, we know how difficult getting a cat to the veterinarian can be. Unfortunately, this means that many cats miss out on the care they need.

Feliway wipes—single-use disposable pheromone wipes applied to the inside of a clean carrier—can help your cat find his or her carrier a place of comfort, making it easier for you to transport him or her to the vet.

Feliway is a synthetic copy of a feline pheromone that has a calming effect on cats and helps decrease stress.  Cats use pheromones to mark their territory as a safe place; Feliway helps create a state of security in new and perceived “unsafe” environments—such as a carrier or veterinary hospital—by imitating these same pheromones.

At The Drake Center, we use a Feliway diffuser in our cat-only exam room as well as Feliway spray to help put our feline patients at ease. (Binky, our hospital cat, loves it—read his blog here.) We are now happy to offer Feliway wipes as just one more way to make your cat’s visit as pleasant as possible.

Schedule an exam for your kitty and we’ll mail you a FREE Feliway wipe to try while supplies last! No time for snail mail? No worries—if you make an appointment on short notice, you can stop by The Drake Center and pick one up!
