Good product, works for us, but will not suit all dogs at all time for all conditions - it depends - seek vet's advice first!

Firstly, this will not work for all dogs and I suggest, in the first instance, that you seek advice from your vet. We tried Adaptil some years ago and it didn't seem to make any difference - BUT - in November one of our little dogs died and that left her sister all alone. Although normally a fairly confident Jack Russell girl she seemed to decline after her sister's death, howling if we left her alone, being scared in the car (where she never had been been before) and if we went for a walk anywhere except in our village she seemed to have a panic attack. We sought the vet's advice and he told us she was grieving and picking up on our grief as well - and that we needed to 'reset' her naturally without using drugs. He suggested Adaptil - even though it didn't work when we tried it years ago. We have now been using it for nearly a week and we can see a marked improvement in her confidence in the car and she has stopped howling when we leave the house. We purchased the plug in and the collar and it seems, so far, to be working. I have just ordered the spray because she is off to the dog minders house in two weeks for a couple of days and we will leave the collar on her but also will spray her bed and blankets for when she is away.Here's hoping!
