The holidays can be a very stressful and anxiety filled time of year. It’s not only a stressful time for us, but it is for our pets as well. Our dog Mr. Pink is usually the most stressed of all our pets. He doesn’t like to travel and he gets car sick. He also gets overly excited when people come to visit. This leads to him being overwhelmed and dealing with anxiety. The holidays are the time of year when we travel the most to visit family and friends. It’s also the time of year when we get the most visitors. It’s usually too much for little Mr. Pink to handle, so thankfully we had something to help him this year.
We got some Adaptil® to try and it did keep him calm and relaxed for when we traveled with him and for when we had visitors over for Christmas. Adaptil® replicates the pheromone that is naturally produced by mother dogs after giving birth. This “Dog Appeasing Pheromone,” is a familiar scent that helps dogs and puppies feel calm and secure. In fact, Adaptil® is recommended at the earliest puppy-stages to help ease the transition into a new home and assist with training. Adaptil® comes in several forms that offer both long and short-term help.
We got the Adaptil® Diffuser, Collar, Spray and Wipes. We used the collar and travel spray when we traveled in the car. It actually kept him calm enough to the point that he didn’t get car sick.
We put the collar on him and sprayed his little blue dog blanket with the travel spray before we got in the car. It worked wonders.
At home when we had visitors, we used the diffuser and the wipes. You just screw the vial into the Adaptil® Diffuser unit and plug it into an electric socket. Each diffuser covers an area of up to 700 sq. ft. and refill vials last 30 days. It covered our whole living room and it’s been going through out this busy holiday month.
I firmly believe wiping his dog bed down with the wipe and having this Adaptil® Diffuser on when company came over for Christmas kept Mr. Pink extremely calm. It’s the calmest I’ve ever seen him with kids running all around the house and adults petting him every five minutes. You should know, most pet clinics actually use Adaptil® products in their exam rooms and now I can see why!
He was still alert and happy through out the holiday festivities. It didn’t make him sleepy or anything. It just kept him calm.
He was just a happy little fur baby who was enjoying showing off his new holiday outfits off to his family and friends.
I’m so happy we found out about Adaptil® products just in time for the holidays! It trully helped our pet enjoy a #FearFreeHoliday! Adaptil® is available through your veterinarian or a qualified pet behaviorist!
