ADAPTIL (D.A.P.) Dog Appeasing Pheromone Spray helps stop or prevent fear and stress-related behavior in puppies and adult dogs that result in: destructive behavior, excessive vocalization (barking, whining, etc.), house soiling, excessive licking, anxiety. D.A.P.™ helps comfort the puppies and adult dog in stressful situations such as: introduction to visitors or strangers, visits to the veterinarian, moving to new homes, adoption, novel and unpredictable situations leading to phobic reactions.
In mammals, lactating females release substances called "appeasing pheromones" the function of which is to reassure the offspring. Canine "appeasing pheromones" are secreted by the sebaceous glands of the intermammary sulcus in the lactating bitch.
These pheromones calm the puppy during times of stress and provide reassurance, particularly in unknown environments and when encountering novel experiences.
Research has shown that the reassuring properties of these pheromones persist even into adult age. D.A.P.™ (Dog Appeasing Pheromone) reproduces the properties of the natural "appeasing pheromones" of the bitch.
Uses: ADPATIL Spray contains D.A.P. which can help control or prevent stress in puppies and adult dogs, helping them to deal with challenging situations such as:
other challengin situations (adoptions, moving house, new member of the family, staying in a kennel, staying alone at home, fireworks, thunderstorm)
Combining ADAPTIL Spray with ADAPTIL Diffuser or ADAPTIL Collar may provide optimal results for dogs showing multiple fears in different situations.
