Bought the Sentry Calming Collar for my traveling cat

I wrote about my cat's difficulty when being transported from home to the summer place we are renting. He also is freaking out while here (scratching at any closed doors all night long). We read online about the Sentry Calming Collar, so drove almost an hour today to find a store that sold it. If you can believe it, when we took it out of package and stretched to activate, it broke in half (my husband repaired it with some bandaids and it is now on the cat).
I read about another product made by Sentry. Has anyone tried this?""

I have found my cats are better off at home than forced to travel for vacation. I am no help here. I hope you all make it back home peacefully

I do what I like and like what I do. Yorkies- Cozy (4/1/06), Roxy & Zoey (2/11/08), Lucy (4/6/09); Golden- Buddy (4/13/09- Rescued 12/11) Maine Coon cats- Mika (1998) and Tallulah (2000)

Since we are renting the place for a month (I myself will go back and forth several times as I have to work some of the month) and I couldn't arrange for anyone to come to my house this week, I decided to bring the cats. I go home again the end of the week, and hopefully will be able to get someone to come in so I can leave them at home when I come up again. I did not want to board them for 23 nights (total time I am up here)

Just wanted to let people know (in case they do have to travel with a cat, and want to help the cat deal with the trip) that the Sentry Calming Collar worked really well. Last night the cat did not spend the night scratching at the door and he just seems to be dealing with things better.
I have to say that I think the collar smells weird. I cannot identify what the smell is, only when he sits next to me it gives me a headache and the smell if offensive (but less offensive than the smell in my car when we traveled)

I bought these for my three cats when we moved and they worked amazing! Two of the three are super skittish and freak out at any type of change. Well we put these on and right away they wanted to explore the house and were so happy. I left them on for 3 weeks and they are loving it here. I would leave it on until you are back home and maybe a few days after to help him re adjust.

Is this the same as a DAP collar?

I'm not sure what a DAP collar is. This one is made by the Sentry company and it is called a Calming Collar.

I noticed in the store they make one for dogs as well - I may be looking into this!
