I bought a DAP diffuser when I first got my two rescue dogs, as I had read online that they were a useful tool in helping dogs adjust to new environments and reduce their stress. The Diffuser is similar in design to a plug in air freshener, it consists of a moulded plastic diffuser with a plug attached and you screw in bottles of the DAP liquid which is then slowly released into the room. DAP stands for 'Dog Appeasing Pheromone' and is supposed to replicate the calming and soothing pheromones that a mother dog secretes that keeps puppies happy and calm.

my dog had a fear of thunderstorms and fireworks which got worse as she got older. she suffered with arthritis and made it worse at these times by her unsettled behaviour. i had tried the usual things like music on, curtains shut etc. my vet recommended the D.A.P diffuser and i was willing to try. after 5 days of it being plugged in there was a storm and once i put some music on my dog settled and went to sleep. the same happened during the next few storms. sadly i wont be able to see if it works for fireworks night as she was prescribed rimadyl for her arthritis and suffered adverse reactons to the drug but while being treated at home before going into hospital she ...
