Stressoxan cat – 30 tablets


Stressoxan cat ss a nutraceutical supplement, that has been developed for adult cats and kittens which experience stressful situations e.g. fireworks, separation, change of environment, visits to the veterinary, etc. In addition, Stressoxan cat can be used for cats showing behavioural problems, e.g. hyperactivity, or for cats with discomfort accompanying persistent health problems.



Composition of Stressoxan cat

Stressoxan cat ingredients have a positive effect on optimising neurotransmission under stress conditions of the pet.

L- Tryptophan – is an exogenous amino acid necessary in the synthesis of numerous proteins in the body and a precursor of neurotransmitters. L-tryptophan present in Stressoxan cat is absorbed in the cat’s digestive tract, crosses the blood-brain barrier where it is converted to 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP), which is then converted to serotonin, known as the “happiness hormone”, providing the cat with peace and comfort.

Hibiscus syriacus extract standardised to 40% gossypin content supports your pet’s body in situations of stress or anxiety. Gossypin (3,5,7,8,3′,4′-Hexahydroxyflavone-8-glucoside) is a ligand for γ-aminobutyric acid type A (GABAA) receptors. Moreover, gossypin also exhibits antioxidative and anti-inflammatory effects.


New Year’s Eve and Christmas vs. the cat

Loud fireworks, the hustle and bustle of holiday celebrations or family visits are all very stressful situations for your cat. Therefore, it is necessary to take care of your cat’s comfort during these days.

To reduce your cat’s stress level, you should provide a place where it feels safe. Do not let your cat outside in the afternoon when the fireworks are going off. Also remember not to give your cat too much attention disproportionate to everyday situations. The cat will recognise too much care and will feel threatened.

In addition, specialised products such as Stressoxan cat can help by aiding the cat in stressful situations.


When is your cat under stress?

A cat’s health requires a mental and physical balance. Every cat has specific needs which, when not fulfilled, cause psychological and health problems.

Basic cat’s needs include:

  • safety (from the cat’s point of view, not our own),
  • sleep (in a place which is safe for the cat),
  • nutrition (balanced, varied and regularly supplied with food),
  • grooming,
  • defecation,
  • scratching,
  • exploring the environment,
  • hunting,
  • marking the territory,
  • playing,
  • sleep disturbance.

Failure to fulfil these needs can lead to behavioural disorders of the cat and will require appropriate care.


How to recognise behavioural disorders of a cat?

Stress is most often defined as the response of a cat’s body to stimuli that disrupt its habits and balance, and whose intensity exceeds the scale that the body can cope with on its own. These factors, which we call stressors, cause the cat’s abnormal behaviour.

Each breed has different characteristics for its natural environment. However, if you notice behaviour that is different from usual, do not underestimate it. Signs that should attract your attention are when the cat:

  • is restless,
  • meows a lot,
  • suddenly doesn’t use the litter box,
  • chases its own tail,
  • is apathetic or hyperactive for most of the day,
  • is aggressive towards the owner,
  • scratches excessively,
  • sleeps uneasily.


What influences a cat’s behaviour?

Routine is natural and very important for cats. Sudden changes are the source of their behavioural problems. Even a simple change of litter in the litter box can have a negative effect on the behaviour of cats, which are extremely sensitive. Small space, noise, a new person in the environment are also detrimental factors causing strange behaviour.

Castrating a cat at an early age has a positive effect on its behaviour. To a large extent, it contributes to reducing aggressiveness. Cats become calmer and more trusting. However, treatment at a later age may not have this effect. It is worth bearing this in mind, that late castration or sterilisation sometimes has negative effects on the cat’s hormonal balance.

However, if despite these efforts, your cat still shows signs of hyperactivity and stress, let’s make it comfortable by introducing the steps described above. Alternatively, you can use specialised complementary feed, such as Stressoxan cat, to help ensure your cat’s comfort and happiness.
