So, What IS D.A.P.?
When I talk about calming collars to our clients, they most often bring up Adaptil products. Lots of people know about the brand Adaptil but they do not know the science behind it, because of this many people are skeptical as to how it works.
They ask, “Does it really help calm my dog?” or things like “How can a simple collar possibly help my anxious dog?” Well, when these products like the collar that is infused with D.A.P. and the diffuser that releases this pheromone reaches your pups nose you will no longer be skeptical of its ability.
D.A.P. also known as Dog Appeasing Pheromone is a chemical released by the bitch as she is nursing her puppies, this helps them feel safe and protected so that they may nurse without worry. This chemical was studied thoroughly and has been proven to have a calming effect by creating a sense of security in any age dog.
So, Mom DOES know best!? YES! especially when it comes to our pups.
Well, YES!! I highly recommend all Adaptil products. From helping anxious pups with storm phobia to the pups that are anxious about everything, Adaptil has a product to help tremendously.
Using all 3 products in conjunction can also have great benefits and can be used in different situations. For instance, my pup with generalized anxiety wears an Adaptil collar and both of my pups are exposed to the Dog Appeasing Pheromone through use of the Adaptil diffuser.
This helps them feel safe and secure especially when I’m not home. Although I notice the biggest difference when used together with behavior modification and other ways to stimulate them mentally. All put together in a treatment plan I review with my veterinarian.
It is recommended that the collar be replaced monthly as the pheromone levels slowly deplete, the same is recommended for the diffuser where you can simply order refills for the plug in.
So, Thank You to the Adaptil Brand and Ceva Animal Health for a life changing line of products. Forever thankful are my Ava and Ari girls, for making a tremendous difference in all of our daily lives.
As always never hesitate to ask questions!
