    Recent research1 by Ceva Animal Health, manufacturer of the leading veterinary behaviour products, FELIWAY and ADAPTIL, has revealed that holidays can be hugely stressful for both pets and their owners with over 80% of pet owners feeling guilty about leaving their pet while they are away.

    Indeed, 85% of those questioned worried about their pet while they were on holiday, with over 60% staying at home because they have been so concerned and 63% choosing shorter holidays as they have not wanted to leave their pet for long periods. And it appears that it is not only owners that worry, as 46% of those questioned believe that their pet’s behaviour changed while they are on holiday by becoming withdrawn (58%), meowing or barking (24%) and in the case of dogs, becoming destructive (15%).

    Moreover, the human-animal bond is so strong in some cases that 65% of pet owners take their dog with them on holiday with over 80% paying extra for accommodation for the privilege. And for pets staying at home, over half are looked after by family and friends while their owners are away, with 18% going to a kennel and cattery.

    Dog owners can use an ADAPTIL®Calm On-the-Go Collar on their pet to help calm and reassure them while they are away from home and ADAPTIL®Transport makes travel in the car less stressful.

    A FELIWAY CLASSIC Diffuser is an excellent solution to comfort cats, perhaps while a neighbour or friend is popping around to feed a cat. FELIWAY Spray helps calm cats and reduce stress in the cattery. It can also be sprayed on their beds or blankets to provide additional support at home.

    “The un-conditional love and companionship of our pets can make the holiday season stressful for all concerned,” comments Abbie King, product manager for ADAPTIL and FELIWAY at Ceva Animal Health. “ADAPTIL and FELIWAY can help dogs and cats feel calm and relaxed in stressful situations, ensuring holidays are as happy and stress-free as possible.”
