HAZARDS TO ANIMALS: Keep out of reach of children.FAQ
Do the Feliway diffuser refills fit other brands of diffuser systems? No. The Feliway refills should never be used with another brand of a diffuser device. The pheromone technology is designed to work at a certain temperature that is specific to Feliway diffusers.
What pheromone is in Feliway? The pheromone released by Feliway is the synthetic copy of the natural comforting pheromone released from the mother cat's mammary area during the nursing period. This appeasing pheromone helps maintain the bond between the kittens and their mother and helps kittens feel safe and secure. The scientific team at Ceva has found that this pheromone can help reduce tension and conflict between cats in the home.
Can I use Feliway with a young kitten? Yes. There is no minimum age for using Feliway pheromones. Kittens are able to perceive pheromones in the environment and respond accordingly.
How long should I use Feliway? It depends on the nature and the extent of the reason you are using the product. The minimum recommended duration for most situations is 1 month. But some situations may benefit from permanent use.
What type of behavior problems may not be helped by Feliway? Feliway has been tested in households where there is tension and conflict between cats. Feliway has not been tested for aggression toward the owner(s). In this situation, consulting your veterinarian or a behaviorist is strongly recommended.
Should I unplug Feliway diffuser at night? No -- the diffuser should be plugged in continuously day and night. Frequent unplugging may prevent the diffuser from working properly. Efficacy was demonstrated in clinical trials with non-interrupted use of the diffuser allowing the cat to constantly perceive the pheromone’s signal. Furthermore, cats are awake and active even at nocturnal times.
Can I use the diffuser in a room with air-conditioning? Yes, a diffuser can be used in a house (or a vet clinic) where there is an air-conditioner, provided that it is not plugged in near the air-conditioner, vents, cold air returns, or exhaust fans. Being near additional air-flow may accelerate the diffusion process and the refill vial may not last a full 30 days.
How can I tell if my diffuser is turned on or working? When the diffuser is plugged into a working outlet, the diffuser head will be warm to the touch.
Can I use the diffuser while leaving the windows open, particularly in the summer? Will that affect the efficacy? Usage with open windows or heavy air flow may result in diffusion at a faster rate. The product may not last the full expected 30 days. In such a case, a different diffuser location should be considered within the house, targeting the area where the cat(s) spends most of its time.
Very cheap to buy from this site if you live in Canada - approx. $25 per diffuser including shipping -vs- having to purchase from the vet and pay $35 for the refill alone!
The peeing has stopped, even with a move to new house and a new city. The other cat, an former stray, has finally fully embraced being a pet at the age of 14. He's a changed cat with the addition of Feliway to the household.
The cats are happy, we're happy. What's not to like? Seriously, the behavioral change in our case was prompt and highly positive. Feliway really seems to work.
Put one star cuz I had too. Really it should be zero stars
2nd = Product Rating = 4 Stars. Brought our daughter's 2 cats into our house of 2 cats while her house was being finished. Pretty stressful for everyone concerned (humans and cats). We plugged some of the Feliway diffusers in our house and she used some in her house for several weeks before introducing the cats to each other. It seemed to go smoother than we thought it would, but not as smooth as we hoped. Would recommend - - do believe it helped.
I plugged in one diffuser in the hall and a cat sprayed the grate in the furnace door two feet away.
However, I did plug in one in another room near where they spray and that has stopped, at least temporarily.
I think this might work for a "normal" amount of cats during a move or an addition to the family, etc. I just think I was asking too much of this misplaced and traumatized "herd" of mine.
Just a very expensive experiment.
