A natural solution for behavioural problems
D.A.P. helps to stop or prevent fear and stress related signs in puppies and adult dogs, such as:
- House soiling
- Excessive licking
D.A.P. comforts the dog in stressful environments (visitors, strangers, vet visits, novel & unpredictable situations).
D.A.P. helps establish the puppy in a new environment eg. re-homing, moving house and coping with strangers.
D.A.P. is a synthetic analogue of the Dog Appeasing Pheromone.
MODE OF ACTION:
In mammals, all lactating females release substances called “appeasing pheromones” the function of which is to reassure the offspring. Canine “appeasing pheromones” are secreted by the sebaceous glands of the intermammary sulcus in the lactating bitch.
These pheromones calm the puppy at times of stress and provide reassurance, particularly in unknown environments and when encountering novel experiences. Research has shown that the reassuring properties of these pheromones remain even in adult age.
D.A.P. (Dog Appeasing Pheromone), resulting from veterinary research reproduces all the properties of the natural “appeasing pheromones” of the bitch.
