I received an email today describing Friday as FriYay! 🎉
I quite liked that so today is FriYay cuteness and it is again our clinic cat Rocket!! 🐈 She is so nosey and such a poser!

We have been busy beavering away, making a Guy Fawkes display and having it available instore as an information source for owners and to raise awareness of options available to help our pets get through this trying time.

Rocket has leant her own seal of approval to the lounge scene and made the display come alive with her presence.

Thanks for keeping it real Rocket! You rock – lol!! 🤣

Guy Fawkes is coming, lets start a conversation… 🎆

Time to discuss options for our furry feline friends.
Feliway is a product designed to help cats cope with challenging situations and stress-related behavioural problems. Feliway is a synthetic copy of the feel-good facial pheromone that cats leave behind when they smooch their face on objects. They have multiple glands around the mouth, chin, cheeks, forehead and ears that secrete this happy pheromone.

Cats are quite secretive by nature and tend to hide their anxiety and stress signals. We as humans also may not recognise what they are trying to tell us and only notice when it’s obvious because the cat has pulled out their fur or is hiding under the bed and won’t come out.
Guy Fawkes is a time when most animals get anxious and upset at the strange sounds, sights and smells and so is a good time to think about their comfort and be proactive.

Feliway comes as a diffuser and is designed to be plugged in and switched on 24/7. The feel good pheromones are released into the environment and this makes being inside more appealing for your feline. You may find that they are more relaxed and less inclined to hide or jump at every little sound.

Feliway comes with a 100% money back guarantee so you can try it risk free.

Feliway also comes as a spray bottle and the manufacturer recommends that it is sprayed on bedding and comfort areas twice daily to offer more reassurance that they are in a safe place.

We encourage keeping cats inside overnight on nights when fireworks are suspected. As you all know, Guy Fawkes is not just one night, it seems to go on for weeks. Train your moggie to come inside for their dinner at a set time each night. Then you can shut them in for the night to keep them safe. Lock doors, windows and the cat flap as some cats can fit out the smallest gaps! This option pays out twofold as you also know they are not out playing in traffic either and can sleep soundly knowing they are A-OK!

You also might like to shut your cat in one particular room on Guy Fawkes Night so you know where they are. This is the room that I encourage you to plug in the Feliway diffuser. Offer a litter tray and don’t forget the food and water to make them comfortable for the night. Shut the curtains and turn on a radio or TV to help drown out the noises of the fireworks.

Our pets are important to each and every one of us. Being prepared for Guy Fawkes is key to preventing and managing many issues that may come up as a result of fireworks being let off.

Remember, remember, fireworks are not just in November! Phone the clinic and have a chat about all supportive options available for your pets during this time.

Guy Fawkes is coming, lets start a conversation…🎆

Is your pet microchipped? But what has this got to do with Guy Fawkes? I hear you ask.

Fireworks are scary for animals. The noises generated are probably deafening for our pets who have exceptionally good hearing. The smells associated with the exploding crackers are novel and animals quickly associate that smell as a precursor for ‘bad things about to happen’. The flashing lights are random and unpredictable for animals that like predictability and routines.

Some animals take exception to the fireworks and get out of your section, bolt from the paddock or run blind and get lost.
All dogs, except dogs that work stock, are required to be microchipped. The number contained in the microchip is able to be read by a scanner that all vet clinics and Animal Control officers have. Each number is original and can only be linked to one animal. The Waipa council require your dog’s microchip number and their data base of microchip numbers covers all of NZ.

There is also another NZ wide microchip data base called The New Zealand Companion Animal Registry. This register is for all animals that are microchipped. They register cats and dogs but also any other species that have a chip such as turtles, sheep, alpaca, horses, and rabbits and even have fish registered!

If the worst does happen over this time then all vet clinics have access to this NZ wide register and we are able to scanned lost pets, check the number on the register and reunite the animal with their ecstatic owners.

Guy Fawkes is coming, let’s start a conversation….🎆

Adaptil does really work for the majority of dogs. It is great that there are three different ways to expose your dog to the comforting messages released by the diffuser, collar and spray. You can use all three together for your dog if you choose, but you can opt for the one method that targets the area of most anxiety for you dog.

The diffuser releases a steady stream of low level, feel good pheromones that help to keep your dog calm and relaxed when in the house. This will be a good option for a dog that doesn’t like thunder or fireworks because often they are inside the house when the episodes occur.

The collar is the best option for a dog with generalised anxiety as they carry the happy feelings created by the collar with them at all times. With the constant release of feel good pheromones, they may become more confident and outgoing when out and about and cope better with stressful events when at home.

The spray is easy to pop onto a bandanna, wait a few minutes then tie around the dogs neck to get immediate release of pheromones when in a scary situation like surprise fireworks or for a dog that doesn’t like to travel.

We want the product you choose to try, to be easy to use and effective for your dog. Ceva make the Adaptil products and support the effectiveness of them by offering a 100% money back guarantee. This means you can try any of the range completely risk free. If it doesn’t work to your satisfaction please bring it back.

Remember, remember, fireworks are not just in November! Phone the clinic and have a chat about other supportive options available for your pets during this time.
