We put this collar on our anxious cat who was unfriendly & clawed a lot at night (often keeping us awake) and it worked at keeping her calm & she no longer clawed everything in our home.  We could always tell when it was time to change to a new collar (approx. every 30 days) as her bad/unfriendly/irritating behavior would reappear.  HOWEVER, just days after putting on her 5th collar, we noticed a large red raised oval-shaped abrasion on her neck with a surrounding balding spot near the collar.  The next day, she had a gaping open wound and I removed the collar, washed the area and treated the wound.  Next day it was oozing pus.  Over the next week or so, it appeared to be healing: closed up very minor looking wound and her hair was re-growing...until two days ago when we noticed a swollen area below where the wound had been.  Yesterday the swollen area apparently ruptured & was putrid.  Today she is in surgery for a horrible absess.  Our honest & wonderful vet could not absolutely verify that this wound was caused by the collar because cats also get absesses from fighting, so while we are documenting her care and plan to request reimbursement from Sergeant’s Pet Care (makers of these Sentry calming collars), the company may not decide to reimburse us for it.  The thing is, our cat is 8 years old and we have never had her fight or be injured in this way.  How oddly coincidental that this should happen after wearing one of these collars!  Now I have been reading other reviews for the collars and cat owners have reported similar problems!

Pros: Cat seems more calm

Cons: The powder that it releases (but it was ok after a while)

Well i bought this after reading about this in the forum here, because i recently moved with my cat from my home country to europe. My home country being Brazil, my cat has short hair and is adapted to going outside, having sun, etc. And in here there is no such thing and is a small apartment. My cat went nuts, needless to say. It would cry all night long and we couldn't sleep at all. I had to order the colar from amazon so it took like 2 weeks and a half to get here, and in the meantime the cat stopped crying all night. When it got here i put it on him immediately, and i really didn't notice much of a difference. It DOES look a little calmer (being that is such an active cat) but we still can't sleep during the night, because now the problem is that 3am is the playtime, so he tries to wake us up. But that has nothing to do with the collar effectiveness.

 

For me, i won't remove the collar for this month, because my cat needs to adapt and i think it is kind of helping him to do so. It's a big change, and if you have a kitty that is in a bizarre new place, that is really hard on them, so even if they will act out or not, it's better to prevent and get them something like this collar or the diffuser, to help them adapt, and so they can feel at home right away! :)

 

Hope it helped

Pros: smells great; breakaway feature

Cons: Do not remove until you have replacement

When I brought King Arthur's pregnant mother in to my home, all my kitties were very accepting and helpful... Except for my Paige. She became very stressed out. Marking and showing aggression and displeasure at the new kitty and her kittens. I tried everything... Feliway and even stress tablets to no avail. At the end of my rope, my vet recommended the Pro Pet Calming Collar. I was skeptical. But within minutes, I could see a change!!! Now, you can no longer get the Pro Pet collar (I just talked to my vet on the phone. They discontinued it and he happened to get some boxes of it. But once that is gone. That's it.) Much to the dismay of everyone who has tried it.

 

It works by mimicing the mothers pheremones to calm a cat. They work for a month or more. But trust me, DO NOT take off a collar until you have one to replace it.

 

However, there is a light at the end of the tunnel, this collar also seems promising. The Good Behavior Calming Collar, It seems to be close to the same thing.

 

All I know is my darling Paige is her sweet self again.  No stress.  No marking.  No aggression.  I can't say enough about these little miracle workers!!  I highly recommend them to anyone who has a kitty that is stressed like my Paige was.
