By developing Feliway® and Adaptil® to revolutionize the approach to these disorders in companion animals, Ceva has committed firmly to behavioural medicine.
Feliway® and Adaptil® : Pheromone based products
Pheromones are compounds that are naturally secreted by animals so that they can communicate 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 in order to mark a familiar territory.
Ceva Animal Health has developed synthetic analogues of some of these natural pheromones.
- Feliway® (feline facial pheromones)
Used in stressful situations (moving house, transport, presence of other animals, etc.), Feliway® gives the cat its "bearings" and thus prevents the stress which can generate disturbing behaviour (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®: Dog Appeasing Pheromone
Adaptil® is the synthetic equivalent of the pheromone secreted by bitches to reassure their pups on contact. Adaptil® helps dogs handle stressful situations better (separation, weaning, transport, fear of noise, firework displays, 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.
