PLEASE READ: FAQ's regarding recent changes to Feliway & Adaptil - Click Here.
Adaptil is a synthetic copy of the dog appeasing pheromone naturally released by a mother dog to comfort and reassure her new puppies.
Adaptil is non-sedative, non-systemic and as such can be used alongside other types of medications, to help your dog cope with stressful situations and improve behaviour.
Adaptil has been scientifically proven to have the same reassuring effect on puppies and adult dogs. It is particularly useful for new or challenging situations.
Simple things can upset your puppy or dog - new people, car rides, being left alone, fireworks or even a baby being brought into the home. The visible behaviours that you notice can be a result of your dog trying to cope:
- Drooling and licking of lips
- Excessive barking and whimpering
- Soiling in the home
- Panting & pacing
- Trying to escape
- Seeking out owner
- Destroying household items
The spray is great for dogs that travel, stay in kennels or are visiting the vet. It can be sprayed onto bedding and carriers 15 minutes before the dog is introduced to the environment (car, carrier, kennel etc...): one spray should be administered to each of the 4 corners, 2 spray to the floor and 2 sprays to the top of the carrier or kennel. The effect should last approximately 4 to 5 hrs.
