What is Adaptil?
Natural Adaptil is a synthetic copy of the natural canine
appeasing pheromone proven to help support dogs in a range of
stressful situations. The ‘appeasing pheromone’ is naturally
released by all lactating mammals to comfort and reassure their
offspring. In dogs, the canine appeasing pheromone has not only
been shown to help puppies, but also to have a comforting influence
on adults dogs helping them to be more resilient and cope
appropriately with change.
Adaptil is canine specific, odourless, non-sedative,
non-systemic and can be used alongside all other types of
medication. The efficacy of Adaptil has been demonstrated in 18
studies published in scientific journals and at veterinary
conferences around the world.
For puppies - Adaptil is shown to help puppies
settle in a new home and to have significant positive effects on
puppy socialisation. Fitting an Adaptil collar to puppies from
6-16 weeks helps puppies develop into confident, well-behaved adult
dogs and significantly reduces the likelihood of anxiety-related
conditions developing in later life.
For adult dogs - Adaptil has also been
shown to help dogs cope in kennels , during rehoming and in a range
of other stressful situations such as during firework exposure and
car travel. Adaptil has been used by behaviourists, veterinary
experts and welfare charities for the last 10 years. Adaptil is
available in three easy to use formulations and can be used in the

Adaptil Spray should not be directly sprayed on animals or near
an animal’s face. When the Adaptil collar is in snug contact with
the dog’s skin, the dog’s body temperature warms the collar and
encourages the diffusion of pheromones into the local environment.
As a result, it is vital the Adaptil collar is in close contact
with the dog’s skin at all times. Two sizes of collar are
available for puppy/small dogs (fits neck up to 37.5cm) and
medium/large dogs (fits neck up to 62.5cm). Each collar lasts 4
weeks and can be replaced as required.
