Rated 5 out of 5 by Susie32277 Collar stops cats from pulling out hair
I have an 8 yr old female tabby Siamese. Somehow, she has developed a problem of pulling out her stomach fur . Cortisone and shots were expensive and did not work. Desperate, I tried the pheromone collar as experiment. MY GOSH ! IT WORKS !! She stopped the compulsive grooming, and gnawing at her tummy fur. Wonderful solution. Surprised me. Calm personality now. Think she was anxious, but have no idea why. No other animals around and I am always near. Fur pulling was a mystery. But this works.

Rated 1 out of 5 by CatMom123 We got this in hopes that it would help our cat become calmer because she was acting out so much, but the first night we put the collar on, which got a large amount of powder all over me and the couch when I removed it from the package, she acted worse. In the few days she has worn it, nothing has changed. She is still climbing up the walls and tearing up everything she sees. Super sad it didn't work.

I was hoping that this collar would keep my older cat calm, so that she didn't fight with the kitten. I was really disappointed when she growled and hissed after she had the collar on for over 12 hours.

Rated 1 out of 5 by FlamepointSiamese Product triggered constant washing
Recently, I'd felt at my wit's end because my indoor-only 3 year old female Siamese cat had developed a habit of waking up in the wee hours of the night and engaging in repetitive behaviors, such as pacing and meowing, or fixating on my tall dresser and repeatedly trying to jump up on it.
After reading so many positive reviews, I decided to give this product a try, at least until I could get her to the vet to rule out any underlying medical issues. I do agree with other reviewers that the fragrance is quite strong and unpleasant although still somewhat tolerable.
Immediately after putting the Sentry collar on her, I noticed her continuously washing, mostly around her neck area. I observed her engage in this behavior for about twenty minutes or so before I finally removed the collar. Although she eventually settled down, she did continue to wash her neck for a while even after removing the collar.
To experiment, I tried the collar on her three other times and she had the same exact response. Despite her other recent behavioral issues, I've never noticed any problem with her daily grooming.
I am not sure what triggered her excessive washing--whether it was something to do with the actual pheromones or the lavender/chamomile scent. I don't think it has anything to do with the collar because she has always worn a breakaway collar without issue.
Because I never was able to leave the collar on her for an extended time, I am not sure whether it would have stopped the nighttime pacing or fixations. I ended up discontinuing use of the product as I felt it was not worth risking her developing a new obsessive behavior.
I suppose there is a possibility I might have more success trying one of the room diffusers although haven't yet decided whether or not it's worth a try.
