Feliway® and Adaptil™: Pheromone-based products
Pheromones are compounds that are naturally secreted by animals to enable communication with members of the same species. During lactation, for example, female dogs secrete a pheromone that reassures their pups when they are close to them. Similarly, cats secrete facial pheromones which they deposit in known places to mark a familiar territory.
Ceva scientists have developed synthetic analogues of some of these natural pheromones.
Feliway® is used in stressful situations. Stress, such as transportation or a new pet or baby in the household, may lead to disturbing behavior (urine-marking, scratching, aggressiveness).
The use of Feliway spray or the Feliway diffuser will artificially reproduce the facial marking that is natural to cats.

Adaptil™ is the synthetic equivalent of the pheromone secreted by lactating dogs to reassure their pups on contact.Adaptil helps dogs handle stressful situations better (transportation, separation, weaning, fear of noises, etc.) and enables them to adapt to new situations. It is therefore indispensable during the socialization period of puppies.Adaptil is available as a spray, a diffuser or a collar.
