OMAHA, Neb. — To address pet behavior issues, Sergeant's Pet Care Products has created a new product called Vetscription PetStop! behavior correction spray for dogs and cats that is available now at Walmart stores nationwide.
PetStop! behavior correction spray helps modify destructive or aggressive behavior, the company noted. The new product combines noise and a specially developed pheromone mist. The pheromone in the PetStop! spray mimics a natural pheromone that a mother dog or cat produces to calm and assure her young. It almost immediately calms and refocuses pets to end their negative behavior by reducing their excitability. Unlike other noise-making products that may be temporary, the spray's patent pending pheromone mist redirects the pet's attention and behavior. The effect is longer lasting than noise alone and helps the pet not to re-engage in the negative behavior.
"It is truly a revolutionary product. PetStop! provides the behavior correction you're looking for without causing physical harm to pets. We are proud to have this innovative new product available in Walmart stores," said Caryn Stichler, VP marketing.
According to the company, the patent pending technology can be used to immediately stop bad behavior, such as:
- Excessive barking/meowing;
- Unnecessary chewing;
- Stealing food off the table;
- Scratching and/or chewing furniture; and
- Pulling on leash.
PetStop! comes backed by scientific research, the company said.
"I'm excited about the advances we've made in the use of pheromones to help reduce stress levels in animals and the negative behaviors that stress and anxiety can prompt in pets," said Dr. John McGlone, a professor and research scientist with decades of extensive research and development experience in pheromone therapy and animal behavior. McGlone has worked with Sergeant's to develop the pheromone products.
