What People Say...

“I have been grooming cats and dogs for over 35 years and followed with great interest developments in both areas, cat grooming has many challenges none more so than in keeping a cat compliant and calm throughout the groom, I have consistently found that remedies that claim to calm cats can also highten some behaviours making a groom more difficult, The Vita Canis calm cat spray has proved to be effective and versatile on all cats, from cats that travel badly which is a big problem for a lot of owners to cats that are especially lively and difficult to handle and groom, easy to disperse an area can be misted quickly helping to keep calm even aggressive cats. ” Julie Harris, UK
