What is ADAPTIL®?

Mother dogs communicate with their puppies through natural messages released in the air. These “comforting messages” are scientifically called Dog Appeasing Pheromones. These canine odourless messages are only perceived by dogs. Cats and people are not affected. These “comforting messages” provide a strong signal of security and comfort to dogs of all ages. ADAPTIL® sends a copy of these “comforting messages” to help your dog feel calm and confident in stressful situations.

ADAPTIL® is a range of effective, clinically proven*, non-drug solutions to comfort puppies and dogs in stressful situations:

For adults dogs:

- ADAPTIL® Calm Home Diffuser helps calm and comfort your dog at home.

With ADAPTIL®, your dog feels calm and relaxed at all times.

Dog behaviour is often very complex and there are many approaches to help manage it.

ADAPTIL® is a clinically proven* effective pheromone solution. It is NOT a sedative or a tranquilizer. It has been proven to help support dogs with minor to severe stress. In some cases, additional medical treatment and/or environmental modifications may be required and advice should be sought from your veterinarian or a qualified animal behaviourist. If there are signs of disease, consult your veterinarian.

*The efficacy of ADAPTIL® has been proven in numerous clinical studies published in reputable scientific journals or presented at international conferences (under the D.A.P® name until 2011).
