Alzoo calming collar for cats: calm your cat with Nepeta Cataria
A calming collar is a device in the form of a regular collar used for anti-stress treatment in cats and dogs. This device reduces unwanted behavior in the animal and reassures it by emitting pheromones designed to calm them down. The pheromone used depends on the calming collar chosen. It is an invisible vapor diffused in the air that mimics the natural pheromones emitted by cats.
Our calming collar for cats is made from catnip. From its scientific name Nepeta cataria, catnip is an aromatic plant similar to mint. It can be antispasmodic (calms spasms) and antihysterical (against fainting). It has a euphoric and exciting effect on cats, and most felines, and work as a pheromone.
Nepeta cataria contains an active substance called “nepetalactone“, which is responsible for reducing aggressive behavior in cats. This substance modifies the social behavior of the cat, which is a solitary animal, and allows them to better accept the presence of other subjects. Basically, it makes them “friendly”. Activates excitement and causes cats to feel euphoric or even ecstatic. The molecule of this substance stimulates the feline’s sexual pheromones and causes this state of excitement. Help reduce aggressive behavior, anxiety and stress in cats and calms down your cats (safe). Catnip can be used as a chewable food. But used as chewable food, catnip is ineffective and does not work as an anxiolytic.
Despite its benefits for the cat’s brain, catnip does not create a dependency in your cat (catnip is not a psychotropic plant and therefore not additive for your cat).
What are the manifestations of Nepeta cataria in cats?
Once smelled, the cats will have some strange behaviors for about 10 minutes. Some cats may rub their head and body against the ground, jump and roll around. After this initial reaction, the cat enters a state of euphoria that manifests itself as to be playful or sweet and calm. The substance of our calming collar helps to reduce your cat’s anxiety and stress.
In fact, these behaviors are due to the fact that our calming cat collar diffuses nepetalactone into the air (calming cat collar work as a diffuser). This hormone-like substance is ingested by the cat through the nose. In fact, it is an additional “nose” called “vomeronasal organ” or “Jacobson’s organ” and which is dedicated to pheromones. Olfactory receptors in the cat’s nose pick up the scent of this pheromone and stimulate the sensory neurons, thus reducing your cat’s anxiety or stress. This anxiety or stress could be caused by:
- Sudden changes in routine or environment (adopting a cat, moving to another place, kitten veterinarian visits, containment). In fact, cats, this territorial animal, have habits: Playing, eating and sleeping should occur at approximately the same time every day;
- The arrival of a new pet: adopting a dog or a new cat);
- Owners absent for a longer period of time such as vacations
- Veterinary care
There are a multitude of factors that can disrupt a cat’s comfort level and cause fear, anxiety, stress or aggression. The consequence is a behavior change:
– excessive purring,
– cat scratching the sofa, the wall, your apparel, instead of its cat tree or cat scratcher,
– becoming fiercer,
– often with a “big tails”,
– urine marking,
– kneads with its paws in an excessive way
– non-stop meowing,…
