ADAPTIL Calm Refill vials include one refill vial (diffuser head sold separately).

Plug in diffuser where your dog spends the most time. Should be used continuously for at least 30 days. Covers an area up to 700 sq. ft.

Useful Information

Learn about Noise Fears and What You Can Do to Help Your Dog

It's a completely natural reaction to be startled by unexpected loud noises. In fact, a geas response to a loud noise is actually a sensible protective mechanism. But some dogs have a reaction to noise so intense that it seriously impairs their quality of life. These extreme reactions are called "Noise Phobias." Unfortunately, dogs don't outgrow noise phobias and in fact will likely persist and worsen over time if intervention strategies aren't implemented.

Incidence: Phobias associated with noise are not uncommon in dogs and can be seen as early as 9 weeks of age. Research has shown that up to 50% of dogs may have a noise phobia.1 The most common phobias include fireworks, thunderstorms, vacuum cleaners, loud voices, engines, door bangs, party poppers and bird scare devices. Dogs with noise phobias are often fearful of amny loud noises. Dogs of all ages can be afflicted with noise phobias, but in one study 78% of the dogs were between 1-5 yrs of age.

Signs & Symptoms: Dogs react differently to noise phobias. Their reaction can be minor - including whinning or panting - or the reaction can be extreme with the dog fractically trying to escape the home of their enclosure.

    Some Common symptoms are:
  • Trembling
  • Barking
  • Escaping
  • Whimpering
  • Cowering
  • Vomiting
  • Panic
  • Seeking human attention
  • Shaking
  • Hiding
  • Whining
  • Panting
  • Salvatign
  • Diarrhea
  • Destructiveness
  • Inappropriate urination or defecation

Causes of Noise Phobias: No one really knows what causes some individuals to develop noise phobias. Possible causes include: genetic sensitivity to loud noises and sudden traumatic events associated with noise.

    Dogs at Risk of Noise Phobias: Any dog can develop a noise phobia, but there are some populations of dogs that appear to be more susceptible:
  • Dogs adopted from an animal shelter
  • Certain breeds such as working group dogs, herding breeds and hounds
  • Dogs that were not exposed to noise at a young age, but exposed to noise later in life.

Helping your dog cope: Reacting to noise is very normal and an instinctual response that helps an animal respond to threats. A healthy response to noise is demonstrated by a quick recovery in the dog when it realizes that there is nothing truly threatening. But a dog that develops an intense, persistent fear of noise has developed a phobia and that is a much more challenging problem to overcome. Dogs experiencing phobias can seriously injure themselves in their attempt to escape from what they perceive an immediate life threatening danger.

It's also important to realize that dogs may be experiencing anxiety in response to noises no matter how well they may respond to commands during a storm or other noisy event. Fear and anxiety are biological responses that have nothing to do with the intelligence of the dog. In fact, these responses are completely out of the dogs control once the emotional response has been associated with the event that scares the animal. Even the most well-trained dog who responds to "down" obedience during thunderstorms may still be suffering from fear even if he or she appears to be "well-behaved."

    Steps you can take to help your dog cope with Noise Phobia
  • Develop a treatment plan in conjunction with your veterinarian. It's important to make sure your veterinarian is part of the process, as she can guide you to the right resources, monitor your dog's progress and offer medical intervention if necessary.
  • Build a "Safe Area" or Den for your dog to escape from noise when needed. Pick an area that is quiet, away from windows and activity. Your dog may already have an area she favors such as a closet or under the bed. You can create an area by putting a blanket over a kennel. Make sure the area is comfortable, with a dog bed or blankents. Give her treats, toys and chews in the den so that she associates the area with good, positive things. Never force her into this area or lock her into it! It must be a place that she chooses to go because she feels safe there! Also supplement the area with Adaptil pheromone products to help provide additional reassurance. Allow her the freedom to access the den whenever she needs to, and ask the family to leave her alone and not approach her when she is in the den - lettung her come to you when she is ready.
  • Use clinically proven pheromones. Adaptil® is te only clinically proven pheromone product to help reduce reactions to loud noises including fireworks and thunderstorms.2,3 Adaptil® is a synthetic copy of a comforting pheromone emitted by the mother dog after birth. These pheromones help comfort and reassure puppies. This pheromone can be detected by dogs of all ages and signals a calm and confident presence. Dor best resilts, start using Adaptil® at least one week prior to the stressul event (if possible), and contine use for a full 30 days. Adaptil® has no contra-indications, can be used long term and also can be used with drug or nutritional therapies.
  • Your veterinarian may recommend medication. There are several short-term medications that can be given on an "as needed" basis. There are also drugs that can be given continuously to manage long-term stressful situations. Long-term medications may be more important when the dog has other anxiety related problems.
  • Consider desensitization training. If a dog is afraid of noises, desensitization training may be needed. Desensitization means to make less sensitive. It involves a gradual process of exposing the dog to the trigger that he fears with a weak, less threatening version. Over time the dog becomes desensitized to the noise at the weaker level. The noise is slowly intensified until a full or nomal version is reached. You can find more information about this process at ASPCA.ORG.

Behavioral therapy should only be carried out when the chance of exposure to noises is small. It typically takes around 6 weeks to begin to see an improvement, and should therefore be started well ahead of anticipated noisy events such as thunderstorms and fireworks. For fireworks and thunderstorm phobias, behavioral therapy is best introduced in the fall, but may vary region to region.

Help Prevent Noise Phobias in Young Dogs To help prevent noise phobias in puppies, it is important to expose puppies to a variety of mild sounds and stimuli while they are young, Use lots of treats and positive reinforcement when they experience new and potentially frightening things.

  • Expose your puppy to a variety of different (mild) noises, lights, handling and movement
  • Fit puppies, especially those adopted from a shelter, with an Adaptil collar as soon as they are adopted. Continue using a collar for the next 4 months to help them through the critical learning and socialization phase.

Works Great!!!
July 21, 2018
Bought this product a couple months back and after a while wondered where it was hiding these last several years. My Vet's office recommended it to minimize the 'dominance' fights that were occurring at least several times a week between my 3 dogs. Within a couple weeks the fights were almost non-existent.
Works very well It is a tad pricey if u plan a fore

Good investment
April 24, 2017
These things help my dog be her best self. The very nature of this kind of application, a steadily diffusing hormone that lingers in the air, is ideal for our Rylie because she is super sensitive, and having the small amount evenly distributed into the air works well for her. I recommend these diffusers that were also recommended by my holistic vet.

Adaptil is a great product which helps my goldendoodle not be as anxious as he's prone to be.

To find it online and at a good cost was gravy.

Thank you for stocking the product and the ability to get it shipped to me so quickly.

For my hyperactive Corgi, this is a wonderful calming aid. I literally can tell when the bottle is empty by her increased craziness. I don't know if it works for all dogs, but it certainly calms mine down significantly.

Diffuse dispenser BUT NOT WITH the Refills
June 27, 2015
I am irritated I missed the memo a Diffuser Dispenser needed to be purchased with the refills. I use oils for myself and the dispenser-diffuser is a little machine I place drops of oil in and it dispenses it not a PLUG IN like a Glade or FREEBREEZE Dispenser
Leaving tomorrow 4th July and not so thrilled about the NEW GREAT PRODUCT TO Assist in my Girl's anxiety. Hope the collar works

This product is very effective with keeping our dog (who has quite bad separation anxiety) calm. Before use of this product he used to destroy things in the house when left alone. Now we can safely leave him at home for a few hours with no problem!

Definitely Works
January 23, 2015
I recently adopted a shelter dog who becomes very anxious when I have to leave the house and was very hesitant to go into her crate. I recently started using Adaptil and have a cartridge plugged into a wall very near her crate. Now when I ask her to take a nap when I leave, she goes right to the crate and lies down and does not show any level of anxiety. It is worth the expense to keep her happy when I am away.

Have to have it!
June 5, 2014
I have 4 dogs, one is very high strung & anxious. I tried DAP for him and it is SO helpful. The others don't care one way or the other, but my one tells me in no uncertain terms when the diffuser is empty. It has made our lives so much better. If you have an anxious or angry dog, try this. It may be exactly what you need.

This Really Makes a Difference
April 26, 2014
We've been using Adaptil Dog Appeasing Phermone for several months now. At first, we thought our dog's improved behavior might be coincidence. Then when her behavior reverted back to negative space, we realized the diffusers had nearly gone empty (we use three strategically placed in the areas of the house she uses most, which are basically connected spaces). After refilling the diffusers, in about a week, her positive behavior increased again. We realized this was too much evidence to be a coincidence. We now check our diffusers regularly and keep a bit ahead of the supply we need to ensure she does not return to those awful experiences of trembling and fear. We're not sure how long we'll need to use Adaptil, but we're in for the long haul, if need be, because her well-being is as important to us as our well-being! We are grateful for Adaptil and the relief it brings to our girl!

Seems to do the Trick
March 11, 2014
Nothing seemed to calm our young Lab and her sudden bouts of fear and shaking. Our vet recommended trying your product, and within a week, many of her symptoms seemed to dissipate. When the symptoms began to return a few weeks later, we'd discovered that two of the three dispensers were empty! Once refilled, in about a week, she'd begun to return to normal once again. Ordering double next time!

Helps my type A nervous dog
February 16, 2014
My australian shepherd is extremely nervous, and jumpy. I was pregnant and needed something to bring him down a notch, I had upped his exercise, but that just didn't stop the jumping / pacing / extreme barking, and I knew after having my daughter there would be a period where I just wouldn't be able to keep up the 2 hour a day routine. The addition of these plug ins has made a huge difference. He still has his moments of anxiousness, but he is much calmer; and he is great around the baby. I just wish they cost a bit less.

I have two dogs(littermate sisters) One is 130lbs the other 90lbs. I love them very much until they get into a fight. The DAP has been VERY helpful in keeping them calmer and a lot fewer fights. It was recommended when I was living in Kauai, by the Human Society. They were using it in their kennels. So I tried it. It works great.

Very happy with this product as it has a noticeable relaxing/calming effect on our Dog who has had several surgical procedures in recent times and we believe it has aided his sense of security and comfort during recovery.

Adaptil Phermone products are a life saver in my house. I have them all over the house. With 4 very large dogs to contend with, and 3 of them with behavioral issues, this does make a difference. I use 1 plug in for every 500 sq feet of my home. They last for 30 days. At the price from EntirelyPets, I buy them by 6 packs and save myself a trip to the local pet store, and a ton of money. In my area they are priced between $26 and $32 per refill. Now that is savings! And delivered right to my door.

very good - definitely effective

I use the diffuser in conjunction with the DAP collars because the new collars (the gray ones, not the old, discontinued black ones) do not work as well as the old ones for my dog. I definitely noticed a difference when I added the diffuser. It definitely helped.

Best Purchase Ever

I asked my staff if they had any feedback, and they responded with "the price was fantastic and it arrived quickly"!
Thank you for your speedy service.
We are the much hated Dog Pound and the DAP aids in the care of our dogs. Sadly, most people don't believe that we "care", but your product contributes to that "care".

We know when we run out..
April 30, 2012
Our dog psychologist recommended this to us when we added our adopted husky to the family. The resident female malamute was being very aggressive to the new husky and they were fighting over everything in the house. We added the DAP to the routine and it is amazing at how well it calms the female malamute. We know when we run out because she will start to play rough and just generally be grumpy. Great stuff, can't say enough how much it has helped our household!

DAP Dog Appeasing Pheromone
April 17, 2012
I was amazed at how quickly it worked during a thunder storm. Sadly it was at the other side of the house. After my dog had been sitting on my face in bed, I got up and had her sniff it several times, she laid down and went to sleep for the rest of the storm.

I have used the DAP diffuser and refills the past couple of years to help lower the stress level of my five dogs. I notice that if I run out DAP liquid, it doesn't take more than about a week for my dogs to start getting a lot more hyper than they typically are when I have the DAP diffuser operating. Obviously I try not to run out by ordering the 6-pack of refills. :^)

well worth the money
February 17, 2012
Our 5 yr old German Shepard was abused, and we recued her, but because of the abuse she has seperation anxiety, not tearing up the house, but uriating in the basement. Our Vet suggested Phermone treatment. We began to use it, and found the urinating stopped. Fortunatly for us, we discovered "Entirely Pets", as the prices are remarkable, I tell all friends, family about the company. We have made several purchases and planning on getting flea medecine shortly. With the economy the way it is, you have to save when you can, and with "Entirely Pets" you can.

Peace of Mind
January 19, 2012
A few years ago my boy was diagnosed with anxiety and I was offered DAP by my veterinarian. After purchasing and trialing this product I noticed a marked difference in my dog's behaviour. He stopped pacing, escaping and panting and returned to the his normal happy self within about a week. The only problem was the cost from the vet was prohibitive. So I went searching on the net and found that EntirelyPets had the best price (even with International Postage). I have been purchasing this product from them ever since (about 6 years) and I would not be without it. I have travelled with it when we go on the road and set it up at all the new places we visit and the DAP collar for travel is also great. I cannot recommend this product more highly. It saved my baby from misery.
