I have one of the Adaptil diffusers on the go all of the time for my nervy German Shepherd, if we go away, we take it with us + since it has become a permanent thing, she seems much calmer and chilled and her nervous tummy seems much better as well - I think it is great + would definately recommend giving them a go!
Wow! adaptil is amazing. We had to move to rented accommodation when we sold our house and he was as quiet as a mouse and didn't chew anything or soil anywhere - prior to using Adaptil he chewed everything in site at our old house! We since moved into our new home and still no problems :-)
I have nervous old dog and thought i would try adaptil, it didn't work at all with him, in fact it seemed to make him worse.
I have used adaptil for the past 2 years now to help my dog cope with Fireworks. While I belive adaptil makes a differance to her over all anxity she would still react to the lound ones.
Read about Adaptil on this site and others, this is the best value site I've found though! and rather then wait to have it delivered I brought it from my vet, and paid through the nose, I was desperate! We've been plugged in a week now and wow, really, this along with my old dressing gown has really seemed to make a huge difference, have also for a couple of months been training (5 and 12 YO chinese cresteds)I will be making a order, give it a try...
Whilst I am glad that Adaptil works wonders for some dogs, it is not a quick fix for all dogs. There was absolutely no noticeable change in the behaviour or level of anxiety suffered by my rescued Staffy X who has separation issues and the only way I've been able to help her is through sheer hard work and lots of advice from a local obedience trainer who has lots of experience in dog psychology. Sometimes there is no easy option but its definitely worth a try!!
Our rescued Greyhound was like a different dog on the first night we used Adaptil.
Absolutely Amazing! My new 8 month old Whippet has cried and cried every night since I've bought him. Last night I plugged in the Adaptil diffuser and he slept all night without even a whimpering! I can't believe how effective Adaptil is. Thanks Vet UK. Kate
Really helpful for our collie x who is terrified of the low-flying RAF jets we have in this area. We have been able to use a Adaptil diffuser to make her a "safe" hide-a-way, which she now runs to when a jet flies over rather than tearing round the house trying to find a safe spot.
Adaptil product is excellent for anyone with a dog who gets frightened of fireworks, we used it last year with our staff who is normally a nervous wreck at this time of year and had previously had valium which made him unwell. It worked!!! We were amazed at how calm he was with no side effects at all. The price and service on this site is also excellent, half the price of the Adaptil at our vets.
