We understand your concern as our pets are unique and we expect their reactions to vary. Rest assured that the smells are all-natural happening scents that come from the natural oils and extracts used in our products. If you haven’t already, we recommend you try our gel as the smell is almost undetectable in comparison to the spray. Alternatively, the spray and gel are fast absorbing so we suggest that you try to distract them for a few minutes. It might be worth using their favourite toy or treat to keep their mind off the product while it sinks in.
