Any higher dilution and the solution, not to mention the cleaning power, won’t be as potent. Any lower and the solution might be too strong. We find the easiest way to mix the correct... Read More

How can you help make their stay more enjoyable? We recommend using calming products like aromatherapy shampoo and spray, alongside remedies such as a plug-in diffuser from Adaptil, Feliway or...
