Adaptil Dog Appeasing Pheromones
Developed for pet owners by veterinarians, D.A.P.™ (Dog Appeasing Pheromone) mimics the properties of the natural pheromones of the lactating female.
All lactating females release a substance which science calls an "appeasing" pheromone. The function of this pheromone is to provide a feeling of comfort, safety and reassurance to the young. A dogs "appeasing" pheromones are secreted by the bitch 3 to 5 days after the puppies birth.
It is now known that anxiety is a real and debilitating condition for our dogs as well as for us. One of the most fascinating and ground-breaking developments to materialise against the stress and phobias experienced by our dogs is the identification and use of pheromone therapy.
The Adaptil DAP Diffuser works like a plug in air freshener, continuously releasing the odourless natural pheromone into the dogs environment, helping to make it feel safe and calm. The DAP Diffuser is a natural solution, there is no sedative effect and the dogs ability to interact and play is maintained.
AdaptilTM is a synthetic copy of the natural canine appeasing pheromone proven to help support dogs in a range of stressful situations.
Adaptil is canine specific, odourless, non-sedative, non-systemic and can be used alongside all other types of medication.
The efficacy of Adaptil has been demonstrated in 18 studies published in scientific journals and at veterinary conferences around the world.
• For puppies - Adaptil is shown to help puppies settle in a new home and to have significant positive effects on puppy socialisation . Fitting an Adaptil collar to puppies from 6-16 weeks helps puppies develop into confident, well-behaved adult dogs and significantly reduces the likelihood of anxiety-related conditions developing in later life.
• For adult dogs - Adaptil has also been shown to help dogs cope in kennels , during rehoming and in a range of other stressful situations such as during firework exposure and car travel.
Adaptil (formerly known as DAP® ) has been used by behaviourists, veterinary experts and welfare charities for the last 10 years
