Included in these kits are:
Sollquin Behavioral Health Supplements - These supplements aid in the support of normal behavior and facilitate calming effects without sedation. It is recommended to give the appropriate dose 2 hours before your pet's vet visit.
Species Specific Calming Music - iCalm "Through a Dog's Ear - Driving Edition" CD should be played for a minimum of 10 minutes before leaving your home. For felines, "Through a Cat's Ear" CD should also be played before your cat's appointment. It is also recommended to play this CD during your drive to the vet.
Adaptil or Feliway pheromone sprays or wipes - Adaptil is for canines and Feliway is for felines. Both of these products are synthetic species-specific pheromones intended to mimic the pheromone given off by your pet's mother when they are weeks old that create a calming effect. There are various ways to use these, including travel sprays (for best use, spray it on a bandana and tie around your pets neck), wipes for cat carries, and diffusers that can be put in the household.
Your kit will include samples of all of these (CD should be returned at the time of your pet's appointment to receive your credit).
You can purchase a Fear Free Vet Visit Kit at our hospital.
