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 following situations:

Help promote learning during training and socialisation
Help puppies or adult dogs settle in new homes
Help dogs to cope with challenging situations such as: staying in kennels staying home alone fireworks visiting the vet travelling Christmas

How to use Adaptil will depend on the situation your dog is faced with and/or the behaviour they are exhibiting. Adaptil can

Help comfort dogs during car travel
Help promote learning during training classes
Help adults and puppies settle in new home
Help reduce stress-related behaviours in response to challenging situations (fireworks, Christmas, new baby etc.)

The Adaptil Diffuser is a discrete plug-in which bathes the home in a synthetic copy of the ‘canine appeasing pheromone ’, a natural product proven to comfort both puppies and adult dogs. Releasing the comforting pheromones into the local environment. The diffuser covers an area of 50-70m2 with each vial lasting up to 4 weeks. The diffuser should be plugged into the room where the dog spends most of its time. Adaptil Refills can be purchased and replaced as required, upto 5 refills may be used before replacing the unit. The Adaptil Diffuser may be used alongside the Adaptil Collar or Adaptil Spray.

Adaptil Spray can be sprayed directly on bedding, inside crates, indoor kennels, or in the car. It is a convenient formulation for intermittent use. Spray 8 to 10 pumps of Adaptil 15 minutes prior to expected effects and before the dog is introduced into the environment (car, carrier, kennel etc…). Effects should last approximately 2-3 hours, although each animal will respond differently. Renew application after this time or if you notice a reduced effect.

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.
