My cat really likes these! He enjoys getting his 'treat' every night, so it's super easy to give to him. I got these to help with my cat's anxiety about cars. He's an adventure cat and goes on hikes with me all the time! And he loves the hikes, but not the car rides. It's overstimulating for him and his anxiety was too much at times. He sometimes would get so anxious about all the activity going on around the car he would make himself sick! He also hates moving cars passing on our street and would hide until well after the car passed us on our walks. Since trying these, he's less anxious about the cars. He also just sleeps on car rides to our destinations. Life seems a lot more pleasant for him. I'm glad I gave them a try! I only give 4 stars because I'm also a shelter worker and I can tell you, these aren't a favorite of every cat, but many do like them.
...and my dog had been on them for over a year, so I started weaning him off with half a chew a day instead of a full one and he started acting out immediately, so it turns out they were doing something after all. They may not be miracle workers, or a replacement for prescription medication if you pet has more intense behavioral needs, but they level out my sometimes too vigilant two-year-old 15-lb pup, and they're treat-like enough that I use them as a reward every morning for him coming to put on his harness.
Just started giving this to our cats who aren't getting along. It is pretty impossible to give the treat as it is, because it's incredibly hard. But it's very easy to crush, so we do that and sprinkle on their wet food. It's very effective, but you just need to crush it first. We give 1/4 to 1/2 of a treat. We tried a whole treat and the cats were asleep for hours and hours. If that's what you want, give a whole treat, but we just wanted to dial it down a notch.
Solliquin has brought peace to our home again. Maddie, our 13-year-old poodle, was up pacing, panting, barking, and grrring all night long. With Solliquin, she is now sleeping through the night and wakes up happy!
so glad i can get this delivered thru Chewy rather than driving to Vets office every 6 weeks. price is great as well on chewy. works well this product for anxious dogs.
My 14 y.o. Dachshund loves these and it calms him. He hears thunder and just puts his head back down. The same with fireworks. It doesn’t knock him out or put him in a stupor. Been using for almost a year now.
Hoped it would help my girl who gets super stressed when I travel. Can't say if it worked, neither of my cats would touch it. YMMV.
My vet gave me these before, and both cats ate them. A couple of years have passed, and I tried again. Neither cat will eat them. The only good this is that I did not pay the same amount that I did at the vet. I so wished that they worked. They sometimes do not get along, and need some extra boost to the Feliway.
I have only given this to my dog once, just to try it. It seemed to work and he was calmer.
I know I'm supposed to give this longer to determine whether it's really working, but that's kind of hard to do when it's a challenge just to get the cat to eat it in the first place. In the couple weeks I've been giving him these, I usually have to crumble it up and mix it into his wet food, but he's more of a dry food fan, which means he sometimes doesn't finish the wet stuff. I have started trying to coat it in coconut oil, which has been a successful tactic to get him to eat other things he's meh about in the past, but I can't say if that will work long term. My cat also happens to be a very difficult case. The only reason I have resumed bothering to work on his antisocial behavior is because his companion cat (who was a companion to me as well) recently died, and now that it's just us two, I want to see if I can get him to accept me. I was hoping this might chill him out enough to make him willing to accept physical contact from me. It's very possible that even if he did easily eat it, it might not do much to help in that regard. I probably won't bother with these again and may look to a liquid based supplement to help calm him. If you are a cat guardian, be warned that these are on the large end and very crumbly when broken apart. You may want to break them in at least two pieces before offering to your cat.
