What are Pet Pheromone Diffusers?
Have you heard or seen of calming pet pheromone diffusers? Maybe a pheromone spray or collar?

What are Pheromones?
Pheromones are naturally released chemical substances that trigger a social response in members of the same species. They are capable of acting like hormones and impacting behavior.
What are Pet Pheromones Diffusers/Sprays?
Cat or dog pheromone diffusers spray different pheromones into the air that the animal will respond to in a certain way.
Sprays are essentially the same thing, but can be sprayed to something specific, like a fabric that your pet is wearing or close to.
The pheromones help them feel safe and secure, and can prevent unwanted behaviors.
Is it the Same as Essential Oils?
No! If you are using essential oils or any diffuser at home, use cation if you have pets. Some oils can be extremely harmful for your animals. If you have any questions about this, please ask us .
