Adaptil mimics the properties of the natural pheromones of the lactating female. Within three to five days after giving birth, the female generates pheromones that give their puppies a sense of well-being and reassurance, known as appeasing pheromones.
Pheromones are perceived through a specific action that is different from smelling odors. By replicating this signal of comfort, Adaptil helps alleviate fear and stress related signs in the puppy and adult dog such as:
New People/Things: moving or major changes in the household, remodeling or redecorating, new pieces of furniture.
Fear/Phobias: thunderstorms, lightening, fireworks.
Temporary Changes: being transported, hospitalized or boarded.
