Low Stress Vet Visits with Pheromones at White House Animal Hospital!

Low Stress is better not only for your pet but also for you!  Have you ever put off taking your pet for their annual wellness?  Don't put off your pets health.  White House Animal Hospital uses multiple low stress methods to help you and your pet have a better experience at White House Animal Hospital as well as receive well rounded care for not only the physical needs!


Many situations can be perceived as stressful by dogs, such as loud noises (fireworks, thunderstorms, household appliances), going to the vet, traveling by car, home alone, kenneling/boarding, and changes in the home environment or the composition of the family.  Even small changes in your home and your daily routine can upset your dog and increase stress.

Stress can lead to unhappy behaviors such as hiding, excessive barking and whimpering, soiling in the home, and destroying household items.


White House Animal Hospital uses Adaptil and Feliway Pheromones in our lobby to help your pets relax before coming into the exam room.  The Veterinarians and staff treat their lab coats and scrub tops with pheromones as well as towels and kennels are treated in our hospital recovery to ensure your pets comfort from the time they walk in the door to the time they leave. 


The comforting pheromone in Adaptil has been clinically proven to help increase focus during training in puppies and adult dogs.  Additionally for dogs in stressful situations, Adaptil helps reduce the signs of stress which are usually inappropriate behaviors.
Adaptil is a synthetic pheromone that mimics the pheromone mother dogs emit after giving birth to help their puppies feel calm and secure.  Dogs of all ages recognize this pheromone throughout life.  
White House Animal Hospital has a variety of Adaptil products including diffusers, travel spray and collars to offer help in many situations, both indoors and outdoors, and for short-term and long-term use.


When a cat feels comfortable in their environment, they rub their cheeks against objects leaving a facial pheromone.  Feliway is a synthetic copy of the feline facial pheromone used by cats to mark their territory as safe and secure.  
By mimicking the cat's natural facial pheromone, Feliway creates a state of familiarity and security in the cat's local environment.  As a result, Feliway can be used to help comfort and reassure cats while they cope with a challenging situation such as moving or traveling.  Feliway helps reduce or prevent unwanted behaviors caused by stress.
Feliway is available at White House Animal Hospital in the form form of a plug in diffuser that will diffuse an area of up to 700 square feet.


Sometimes sharing a home can be difficult for cats. In fact, 60% of cat owners with more than 1 cat in the house report issues of tension between cats. If your cats aren’t getting along, use Feliway MultiCat.
Feliway MultiCat can help all cats living under one roof feel more safe and secure with their surroundings and ease animosity. It’s a copy of the feline appeasing pheromone mother cats produce during lactation. Cats of all ages sense this pheromone and it provides a calming effect that cats can recognize throughout life.
Multicat is available at White House Animal Hospital in the form form of a plug in diffuser that will diffuse an area of up to 700 square feet.
