Background: Nine out of ten people don’t realize there are solutions to their pet’s behavior problems, and in frustration, often give them up to a shelter. Many of these shelter pets die needlessly. Ceva Animal Health, makers of Feliway® and Adaptil™ pheromone products and the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists want pet owners to know they can “keep their love with their pet alive” with medically sound options from your veterinarian to treat these problems—before it’s too late.
