Make sure that dogs and cats are indoors, and any pets that live outside, such as rabbits, are covered up with thick blankets or old carpet.
Pheromones are substances that are released by bitches to reassure their puppies and it has been shown that these reassuring properties persist into adulthood. Trials have shown an 80% improvement in the clinical signs most frequently observed by owners such as panting, trembling, cowering & hiding.
Adaptil is available in three forms:
1.Diffuser: £28.98. One diffuser is enough for one floor of a two-bedroomed house. £24.34 for a refill.
2. Spray: £28.66. This is particularly useful for a more local effect when sprayed onto the dog’s bed. It can be used
as a back-up to the diffuser.
3. Collar: £27.42/29.08, depending on size. The collar has obvious benefits because it is on the dog at all times.
4. Tablets: £10.10/10 tablets. These work more-or-less straight away.
Like Adaptil, this is a natural product which helps to control stress in dogs. It contains a derivative of the bitch’s milk protein, casein. The dose is given once daily. It is palatable and easy to give, either whole or mixed with the food. It comes in three sizes.

As a last resort, we can prescribe other suitable medication for your dog such as Sileo Gel. Please contact us in good time, as you may need to discuss this with a vet, and your dog may need a health check first.
