Dog Appeasing Pheromone. Well being – Calming
ADAPTIL®Spray can be sprayed onto bedding, in crates or on furnishings. The spray formulation is especially useful where the product is used intermittently, for example in car travel.
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.
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, diffuser, spray and collar.
ADAPTIL® is supported by a satisfaction guarantee
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 to animals or near an animal’s face.
ADAPTIL® can also be sprayed onto a bandanna and tied around the dogs neck.
Lactating bitches naturally produce an appeasing pheromone. This pheromone provides reassurance to the puppies, helping them to feel safe and secure when encountering new experiences and unknown environments. Research has proven that a synthetic analogue of the dog appeasing pheromone (D.A.P.®) provides reassurance and comfort to puppies and dogs of all ages. ADAPTIL® contains D.A.P.® and is therefore recommended for preventing and reducing stress-related behaviour in puppies and adult dogs. ADAPTIL® is also proven to make puppies and adult dogs more responsive to behavioural therapy and training.
The efficacy of ADAPTIL® has been demonstrated by numerous studies published within reputable scientific journals, as well as presented at international conferences (under the trademark D.A.P.® until 2011).
To adapt to a new environment or to cope with a temporary challenge is potentially stressful for most dogs. In some dogs, mild fears and worries can develop into phobias or stress-related conditions. Particular attention should be paid to puppies during the socialisation phase (from 3-16 weeks). Bad - or lack of - experiences during this period may make them more likely to develop stress-related behavioural problems in later life (noise phobias, separation-related disorders, etc).
ADAPTIL® Spray contains D.A.P.® and offers a natural and convenient way to help manage stress-related behaviours in your dog during:
- Other challenging situations (adoption, moving house, new member of the family, staying in a kennel, staying alone at home, fireworks, thunderstorm), in combination with ADAPTIL® Diffuser and ADAPTIL® Collar, to provide optimal results (CF table below)
ADAPTIL® can also be used under direction from a vet or behaviourist and alongside behavioural therapy to help in the management of clinical behaviour problems such as separation anxiety, noise phobia, etc.
ADAPTIL® Spray is not recommended for use in cases of hyperactivity or aggression.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE:
- To help reduce or prevent stress during travelling
Spray 8 to 10 pumps of ADAPTIL® at least 15 minutes before the dog is introduced into the environment (car, carrier, kennel, etc): One spray should be administered to each of the 4 corners, 2 sprays to the floor and 2 sprays to the top of the carrier or kennel. The effect should last approximately 4 to 5 hours. When transporting your dog on long journeys, we recommend re-spraying the travel carrier, or into the car after that time (with the dog removed from the carrier or the car). Please observe also at least a 15-minute window for alcohol evaporation.
- To help manage stress-related behaviour in other challenging situations (adoption, moving house, new member of family, staying in a kennel, staying alone at home, fireworks, thunderstorm), in combination with ADAPTIL® Diffuser or ADAPTIL® Collar.
ADAPTIL® Spray can be sprayed directly on bedding, inside crates or indoor kennels, at least 15 minutes before the dog is introduced into the environment. Renew application twice a day.
ADAPTIL® Spray should not be directly sprayed on animals or near an animal’s face.
Behavioural and environmental modifications may be required and advice should be sought from your veterinary practice.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS: Please read the Frequently Asked Questions section and keep the package insert for future reference.
What pheromone is in ADAPTIL® and is it safe for humans?
The pheromone in ADAPTIL® is D.A.P.® and is identical in nature to the canine appeasing pheromone secreted by bitches from 3-5 days after the puppy’s birth. As pheromones are species-specific, canine pheromones will have no effect on humans or other pets.
Can ADAPTIL® Spray be used directly onto the dog?
No, ADAPTIL® should never be applied directly onto a dog.
How long will it take to have an effect on the dog? How long will the effect last for?
ADAPTIL® Spray is proven to have an almost immediate effect, lasting 4 to 5 hours. Renew application after this time if necessary. Please remember to leave the object which has been sprayed to dry for at least 15 minutes before introducing the dog to the area, to allow for alcohol evaporation.
What type of behaviour problems will not be helped by ADAPTIL®?
If the behaviour is unrelated to stress (over-excitement, aggression, lack of toilet training, hyperactivity or boredom), ADAPTIL® will have no effect.
Do I need to use ADAPTIL® Spray, ADAPTIL® Diffuser or ADAPTIL® Collar, or several of them?
In some situations, for best results, you may wish to use two of them together (see table above for more information).
Can the liquid from the ADAPTIL® Spray be used in the ADAPTIL® Diffuser?
No, ADAPTIL® Spray is alcohol-based and should never be used in the ADAPTIL® Diffuser.
