What is D.A.P.?
D.A.P. (Dog Appeasing Pheromone) is a system that mimics the natural pheromones of a lactating female dog. Within three to five days after giving birth, the female generates pheromones that give their puppies a sense of well-being and reassurance, known as appeasing pheromones.
Because some dogs experience anxiety and/or stress, the D.A.P. diffuser system is often prescribed by veterinarians. It works simiiar to a Glade plug in! The refills are renewed about every 4 weeks.
Our veterinairan prescribed the system, along with medications to relieve Xena of her anxiety issues. She appears to be a bit more settled, but it will take a while for everything to come together.
PeeS - Mama is undergoing a *dental* of sorts, so we won't be blogging for a few days! And......another major snow storm expected tomorrow....but we're not worried, our hooman sister & our good buddy Nathan will take good care of us while Mama & Dad are away! Stay warm everyone!!
