ADAPTIL Diffuser contains D.A.P. and offers a natural and convenient way to help manage stress-related behaviors in your dog. It can be used during fireworks or loud noises.

Description

Is your dog barking excessively, whining and hiding?

These behaviors are likely caused by fear and anxiety.

ADAPTIL is a clinically proven, drug-free solution that helps your dog feel calmer.

ADAPTIL Calm Home Diffuser Refill provides “comforting messages” (dog appeasing pheromones) that helps dogs feel calm and relaxed in situations like loud noises (thunderstorms and fireworks), staying home alone, or other fearful situations. These odorless messages are only perceived by dogs and provide a strong signal of security and comfort. Cats and people are not affected.

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.

It is recommended to replace the refill every 4 weeks, even if a small amount of liquid remains in the vial (the vial will never be completely empty).

  • #1 brand used and recommended by veterinarians.
  • Clinically proven to work.
  • Drug-free solution that helps reduce signs of fear and anxiety, like whining, hiding and excessive barking.
  • Provides your dog with continuous and constant comfort. Refill includes one refill vial that lasts up to 30 days (diffuser head not included, sold separately).

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.

Great Product
The Vet recommended this product to see if it would help calm my adopted sweet 5-year old English Bulldog. She is VERY skiddish and afraid of fast movements and all noises. ADAPTIL Dog Appeasing PHEROMONE has diffently helped this beautiful, sweet dog. She has a long way to go, but at least she has relaxed some since I have been using this product. I am going to order the collar for her and see if that helps some when we are away from home.

Wonderful product
This product was recommended by my vet. My dog was having problems sleeping at night. And, that meant I wasn't getting to sleep either. After two nights she is back to sleeping the entire night. I was skeptical at first but it has worked wonders.

Help for a suffering dog
We recently adopted a dog from a shelter in the country only to find out she had a severe case of separation anxiety. She would literally try to chew her way out of her crate whenever we left her alone. On the advice of our vet. ,we tried adaptil in a diffuser. The difference was like night and day. She is a much calmer and happier dog these days.

Awesome Product
Our Siberian Husky has had seperation anxiety issues. Our Vet uses this in her office and I was always so intrigued by how calm he is when we are there. I bought these for the house and he calmed down and we are even able to leave him alone for a few hours.

Partners with the collars
this diffuser is in a room where most of my five dogs spend much of their time. Four of them have genetic aggressions to one degree or another. Three of them also wear the collar. I think the collar and the diffuser compliment each other. I believe my dogs are calmer, happier and respond better to me using these products. They only last 3 weeks for me, though.

DAP
I have a dog who hated fireworks and thunder stroms. So for 2 years I put the DAP in my living room . Now he only lifts his head if the fireworks are really loud. But nothing like the shaking and pacing he did in the past.

Great Calming Assistance
When we travel we have a dog sitter come and stay with our our dogs. We have found that plugging several of these pheromones in around the house really help to keep our furry kids relaxed and calm. I even plug one in behind the crate of our newest rescue to help keep him relaxed and it seems to help.

Works!!
We have an American Bulldog with anxiety and a Great Pyrenees that is afraid of storms. Keep the diffuser plugged in at all times in my office. The Great Pyrr scratches at the door to get in when she senses a storm. Can tell by their behavior when it needs replaced. Won't be without. Great price too!!!

a work in progress
I purchased this by recommendation of a friend. She had started to use it, then gave me the warmer unit to try. There was a small amount of liquid in the bottom and I plugged it in. It seemed to help calm. She then noticed the difference at home without it. This is what prompted me to purchase the three pack units to try. I have them in two areas of the house the dogs stay most often. We are not through our first month but I do think they help. This will not be a cure all for barking or high energy but does help with relaxation. I will know more once I have used them for a few months. I do see a difference and would suggest a try as long as you do not expect immediate results, it's a work in progress.

This D.A.P really works!
This product made a marked difference in the behavior of my 5 little dogs. They don't bark as much, they seem to be more content and calm. It made even a bigger difference when I added the collar. I thank you and my dogs thank you!

Give it a try!!!
I was skeptical about this pheromone diffuser making a difference with my dog. He was on two pills a day for anxiety so I thought it was worth a try. The first month I let the diffuser run out and we immediately noticed a difference in our dogs anxiety behavior. Refilled diffuser and life was better once again. Then ran low on pills, so went down to one a day until refill came in and with the diffuser we have decided to stay one pill a day. He is much calmer, not as jumpy and a happy dog once again. I will make sure to keep diffuser changed on the monthly date. I think I will buy a second holder for the outlet, because the unit gets very hot. I might change them out every other month. Definitely worth a try if you have an anxious animal. It is in my bedroom and I have only noticed a difference in the nervous dog, not the other dog, cat, or even myself!

Pretty good product
We have an 11 year-old Chihuahua. He's always been on the neurotic side but last fall, he developed a new phobia to gun shots for a distant outdoor range and refused to go on walks. I spoke to our vet and she suggested D.A.P. During the first month, it didn't seem to make much of a difference. But after the first diffusers became empty and I replaced them with new ones, his phobia seemed to lessen and he started to go on walks again. Sometimes, if he hears the shots, he insists on returning home right away. Other times, he doesn't seem to be bothered by them. Most days I can get him to take a walk so, on the whole, I think he is responding well to this product. It beats putting him on Prozac.

Helps to make my dog calm
I have a severly high strung Dachshund and use this product along with the Pro-quiet, Anxitane and a thundershirt and wow...what a different dog! I am all about natural remedies and these all help to make him calm and peaceful with out knocking him out. He acts like a happy, well adjusted dog now! I also started training him too. So...I don't know how each would work by themselves alone..but everything together has made this dog and my life much calmer! And all of these are SO much cheaper here than from the Vet! I am doing the auto ship too so I am sure to have them and at an even greater discount!

My dog seems to be resting more comfortably during the day when I am not available.
I know this due to the tell-tail signs of less things in the home are not disturbed.

Not really sure - long term user
I have been using the Adaptil for almost a year. One of my dogs is dog reactive and anxious so I tried everything available to relax her. I was about to give up because it's hard to know if it makes any difference but I got a new pup so thought it would help with the introductions. Not sure if it did but everything settled down after a couple of days. My vet behaviorist uses it at her office. She has no doubt it helps some dogs.
