Adaptil stress relief diffuser for dogs + refill 48 ml
Electric stress relief diffuser for dogs
The diffuser helps you nurture your relationship with your dog/s, by creating a loving environment for them and making your home a comforting sweet home.
Scientific studies have shown that using Adaptil helps reduce the signs of stress in dogs and puppies exposed to challenging situations for them at home.
How to use Adaptil Diffuser?
Just screw the vial onto the diffuser unit and plug it into an electric socket.
Then leave the diffuser switched on continuously to keep your dog relaxed and friendly.
The diffuser should be plugged into the room where the dog spends most of its time.
Each diffuser refill covers an area of 50-70m2.
Two different sizes are available:
- the 30-day refill (24 mL)
- the 60-day refill (48 mL), which is NEW and lasts 2 months, for improved owner compliance and benefit for the dog(s)
You can replace the vials every month or every 2-month period by buying an Adaptil Refill.
Avoid plugging in the diffuser under shelves or behind doors, curtains or furniture.
Is the ADAPTIL® Diffuser safe?
Yes. The Adaptil® Diffuser device is constructed with self-extinguishing plastic materials and complies with the International Electro technical commission (IEC), European (EN) and UL required standards. However, if the diffuser is used continuously, we recommend that it is changed every 6 months for the best results.
Where should I plug in ADAPTIL ® Diffuser?
You should plug ADAPTIL® Diffuser in the room where the dogs spend most of their time. A diffuser covers an area up to 70m² (750 sq ft), but must not be covered, placed behind a door or underneath furniture. More than one diffuser may be required in large or multi-floor homes.
Why should I not plug in ADAPTIL® Diffuser under furniture?
The oily vapour (carrying the pheromone) will rise in a column of warm air above the device. If this rising air is blocked (e.g. under a shelf, table, furniture) the oil may re-condense and leave a visible mark. Circulation of pheromone will be impaired and the efficacy of the product cannot be guaranteed.
Should I unplug Adaptil® Diffuser at night? (or “switch off the diffuser at night”, for countries which have a control button on the socket)
No - the diffuser should be left on continuously throughout day and night. Frequent unplugging will prevent the diffuser from working properly. Efficacy was demonstrated in clinical trials with non-interrupted use of the diffuser allowing the dog to constantly perceive the pheromone’s signal.
How long does Diffuser last?
The diffuser should be checked monthly and replaced every six months to ensure optimum effect.
How long do the Adaptil® refills last?
New ADAPTIL® Diffusers can be used with either 30-day (24 mL), or 60-day (48 mL) refills. The 60-day refills have been added to the product range for more convenience for the owners (refills need to be replaced only after 2 months) and improved compliance (pets will better benefit from the pheromone effect).
How long should it take to see an effect on my dog with the ADPTIL® Diffuser?
The ADAPTIL® Diffuser will be fully functioning within 24 hours of plugging in. The effect on the dog will depend on the nature, extent and duration of the problem for which ADAPTIL® is used.
Some dogs and/or some indications will show signs of improvement in less than a week (as proven in clinical trials), whereas some will require one month to exhibit visible improvement. In any case, we advise continued use of ADAPTIL® for at least one month before assessing its effectiveness. Finally, the effectiveness of ADAPTIL® also depends on good implementation of environmental and behavioral modifications in conjunction with the pheromone use (please see recommended form and duration of use table on the pack insert) and setting proper expectations for the pet owner.
Can I use the pheromone diffuser simultaneously with an air-conditioner?
An ADAPTIL® diffuser can be used in a house (or a vet clinic) where there is an air-conditioner, provided that it is plugged away from the air-conditioner, vents, cold air returns, or exhaust fan.
I’m pregnant. Can I use an ADAPTIL® diffuser? Should I stop using it?
You may continue using your diffuser. According to the toxicological data on the components of our products, no particular risk is expected following inhalation of the pheromone products when used as recommended. Particularly with pregnant women, the available toxicological data on laboratory animal species show that neither a teratogenic nor fetotoxic effect has been associated with the use of an ADAPTIL® diffuser.
However, as a precaution for sensitive people, it is not recommended to plug ADAPTIL® diffuser in a non-ventilated room where people spend most of their time, and in particular not in bedrooms.
How can I tell if the diffuser is turned on and working?
When the diffuser is plugged into a power socket which is switched on, a LED on the top of the device lights up (orange colour). The light remains on when there is power to the diffuser even if the vial has run out of liquid.
