Independent pet stores can help consumers solve pet behavior challenges

For the first time ever, independent pet stores can carry the well-known pheromone products.

For the first time ever, independent pet stores can carry the well-known pheromone products Feliway® for cats and Adaptil® for dogs clinically proven to help reduce or eliminate unwanted pet behavior.

During the past 15 years, Ceva has developed expertise in animal behavior, and more precisely in pheromones. Over 40 clinical studies have been conducted worldwide demonstrating how pheromones can create a positive environment in the home reducing stress among pets and with the families who love them.

Feliway and Adaptil contain synthetic copies of naturally occurring pheromones to create a feeling of familiarity and security which helps a pet cope with stressful situations. Pheromones speak to our pets in a way they instinctively understand and respond to. 

Pheromones are compounds animals use to communicate with members of the same species. During lactation, for example, mothers secrete a pheromone that reassures their puppies and kittens and helps them bond with others in the litter. Similarly, cats secrete facial pheromones which they deposit in known places in order to mark a familiar and secure territory.


FELIWAY® signals to cats they are in a safe and secure environment reducing stress which leads to unwanted behavior such as urine-marking, scratching, hiding or aggressive outbursts.  Feliway can also be used to help comfort and reassure cats while they cope with a challenging situation such as moving or traveling. 

FELIWAY® MULTICAT is useful in homes with multiple feline family members by creating a sense of belonging in pairs or in groups of cats sharing the same home. Feliway MultiCat can reduce signs of tension and conflict between familiar cats including fighting, hissing, growling, screaming, swatting, and chasing. 


ADAPTIL®.helps dogs handle stressful situations found both indoors and outdoors such as weaning, housebreaking, thunderstorms, being home alone or being introduced to new people or locations. Dogs can be misunderstood, confused and anxious because of unclear human-dog communication.
