Adaptil is used to help relieve stress and anxiety.
Adaptil is a synthetic copy of the natural calming pheromone that is produced by a lactating female after birth. The natural pheromone gives puppies a sense of calm, well-being and reassurance, and Adaptil has a similar effect in adult and young dogs.
One advantage of Adaptil spray is that it can be used inside or outside the house. Specific situations where the Adaptil spray would be useful is if your pet feels anxious when travelling in the car, if you are introducing your pet to a new environment, visiting the vet, or other new or novel situations. Adaptil can be sprayed directly onto bedding, inside cages, indoor kennels or in the car.
It can be very comforting for puppies arriving at their new home or for adult dogs who are very nervous of visitors, loud noises (such as fireworks) and unpredictable situations.
The synthetic pheromone in Adaptil also helps to reduce other stress and fear-related behaviour such as destructive chewing, restlessness, house soiling and excessive whining / barking.
Adaptil spray should be used 15 minutes prior to the expected stress.
On average you will require 8 - 10 pumps which should be effective for up to 2 hours but can be repeated if required.
Adaptil spray should not be applied directly to your pet.
Adaptil is also available in the form of a Diffuser, Collar and Tablets.
