Boarding and Kennels

The environmental changes your pet experiences when boarding or kennelling can be very stressful

Rescue Animals

Unfamiliar surroundings and having to build trust with new owners can result in stressful episodes


Cats are highly sensitive and territorial creatures, so even subtle changes in their environment can cause fear and stress.

Signs of Anxiety

If your cat demonstrates any of the following signs, it may indicate fear or anxiety

  • Trembling and shaking
  • Hiding
  • Trying to escape
  • Toileting in the house
  • Open mouth breathing
  • Restlessness
  • Scratching or chewing furniture
  • Over-grooming
  • Fear in everyday situations

Why Should I See My Vet?

At VetPlus we believe vets are best placed to advise on the best course of action for your pet. Cats who show signs of fear when they have no reason to be scared could have a phobia. Phobias are irrational responses where their fear may be disproportionate to the situation. For example many people are scared of spiders (arachnophobia), even though most spiders pose very little actual risk to humans.

Our pets can also pick up on subtle changes in their environments that teach them when to expect a fearful situation. Repeated exposure to scary situations can cause a phobia to get even worse. For example if your pet finds going to the vets scary the first time, the next time they go and every time after that, they’ll expect a scary experience.

This is why we always recommend you ask your vet for help as soon as you suspect your pet is scared. Your vet is the best person to advise you on keeping your pet happy and healthy and because phobias do not tend to disappear over time by themselves.

What Else Can I Do?

There are a number of measures you can take that can reduce your cat’s anxiety levels. Lots of owners find it useful to use a combination of:

  • Behavioural techniques
  • Environmental changes
  • Supplements


Try to work out what it is exactly that your cat is afraid of and then speak to your vet for guidance on what could make a difference long term.  One of the main causes of feline stress stems from a multi-cat household, in which case mall changes around the home can make a big difference.

It is important to remember that managing behavioural issues can take a long time and patience, so do not lose heart if the problems do not disappear immediately.

Feeding Guidelines

Calmex Cat should be administered twice daily according to bodyweight, or as directed by your vet.

Calmex Cat can be given directly, or added to food.



Contact the vet you purchased Calmex Cat from for guidance on the use of Calmex Cat for your pet. They’ll be able to provide specialised advice for your pet due to the records they keep. If you are unable to get the information you need from your vet, or if you bought Calmex Cat elsewhere, please contact us for assistance.
