SENTRY Calming Collar for Cats quickly releases a pheromone through an easy-to-slip-on collar that helps alleviate problem behaviors triggered by travel, thunderstorms, visitors in the home, and even introducing a new cat into the family. SENTRY Calming Collar for Cats has a slip-away buckle that loosens when pressure is applied unexpectedly. IMPORTANT: If your cat has never worn a collar before, please follow these instructions: 1. Apply the collar loosely around their neck and supervise them for 10 minutes. 2. If your cat tolerates the collar, tighten it enough so that you can fit two fingers in between the collar and their neck. 3. Supervise them for 30 minutes. 4. If your cat continues to tolerate the collar, you can leave it on your cat unsupervised.
