Hello again! Today I’m going to do a review about a product that has saved my life. Ok, maybe it didn’t save my life but it made it waaay easier. I’m talking about the Sentry Calming Collar for cats. I’ve been using it (well, not me, my cat Kirara) for two years now and I’ve seen a LOT of improvement. When it was the time for me to decide whether or not to use the collar, I searched online and I didn’t find much. Yes I found the technical details or the reviews on Amazon but what about the average buyer that’s been using it for years? What does he have to tell me? So here I am, I’m going to tell you what I have to say about the Sentry Collar for cats after using it for 2 full years.
This is NOT a sponsored post. Sentry is not giving me money or products to write this, it’s my honest opinion about this particular product because I’ve found it so helpful that I needed to share it.
Why did I have to start using Sentry Collar for cats?
My cat Kirara suffers from anxiety. She has always been aggressive towards people and terrified of them (except my dad, my boyfriend and me) and she used to be so on edge all the time. One moment she was fine, the next one she was biting your arm off or running and biting your leg when you walked past her. I honestly, even though I didn’t enjoy it, didn’t care much about the bites or the scratches on my body but I could tell that she wasn’t having a good time either so I decided to take action. I talked to the vet and he suggested I should give those collars a try because the collars helped a lot of stressed cats.
How did I start using it?
Before I actually buy it (because here in Argentina they are really expensive) the vet suggested I buy a regular collar and place it around her neck, to see if she could handle having a collar (since every cat is different, there are cats that don’t handle collars very well) because there was no point in buying the Sentry collar if I wasn’t going to be able to put it on her. And that’s what I did, and it didn’t seem to bother her at all. She wore it for 1 full week before I decided to buy the actual one.
What happened when my cat start using it?
At first, nothing. She didn’t even realized she was wearing it and there was an overwhelming lavanda smell wherever she would go. But then, after a few days I could tell something was happening, something good. She started to sleep more, to get closer to me and my family. She would rub herself against my legs more often and she wasn’t so on edge when someone walked near her. Also, she started to purr more! It was so nice!
Several weeks later I could tell she was more relaxed. The attacks were 90% less frequent and she wanted to be petted more often. Besides, when strangers came to the house she would hide instead of going crazy and attacking my guests, as she used to do.
And now, after two years I can tell she is happier, less afraid of the world that surrounds her. And the collars lasts longer. At first, after three weeks, the effect of the collar would wear off and she would start acting anxious again, but now the collar lasts two whole months before she starts to behave anxiously and the aggressiveness isn’t as much as before.
Would I recommend Sentry Collar for Cats?
Absolutely, in fact, I did recommend it several times. For example, my aunt’s cat was about to die. The cat wasn’t eating or grooming himself because of how anxious he was. It was really sad. My aunt was desperate so I suggested she should try the Sentry Collar for cats. It literally saved his life. He started to eat, he felt safe around people and he fully recovered.
So, there you have it: my experience using Sentry Calming Collar for cats. Do you have any questions? You can leave them in the comment section below and I would answer them! And, tell me, have you ever used Sentry Calming Collar for cats?
I guess that’s all. See you next time… bye!
