The pheromone in ADAPTIL is D.A.P.and is identical in nature to the canine appeasing pheromone secreted by nursing mother dogs 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?
