A Big Thank You


11401106_1044449595579728_4406380243309644801_nSince our house fire we’ve settled in to our temporary home & have established our regular routine as best as we can.

During the past month we’ve had enormous support from my wonderful vet Dr. Kim Facey & her team at the Apsley Veterinary Services so today I would like to bark out a big “Thank you”.

On the day of the fire, we had to get out so quickly that my medicines were left behind in the house. My huMom had to make an emergency run to the clinic & Dr Facey replaced my needed meds & prescriptions right away. She also gave us Adaptil spray to help calm me.  Her donations were greatly appreciated.

I’ve always enjoyed my visits. Dr. Facey & her staff are always friendly, there are always treats & they don’t mind if I bark 😉 She has clearly done a lot of research on my behalf & has worked closely with my huMom in keeping my medications balanced & effective.


My huMom & I say a heart felt thank you to Dr. Kim & her 10467079_921990634502149_859902346514070464_oteam at the Apsley veterinary Services; Dr. Brooke, Dr. Rose, Joanne, Kyla, Leanne, Amanda & Ali.

Calming Your Good Dog with Adaptil


Calm dog

Anyone who’s met me knows I can be an excitable dog. I  get very vocal when people are around, especially people with high energy. Some times I get too wound up for my own good. I also like my routine so when it gets interrupted by something, I can get anxious & stressed out.

Since the fire my good Vet, Dr. Kim Facey of Apsley’s Veterinary Services  (their Facebook page) has donated to us a product called Adaptil, which is a non-drug solution for helping dogs feel more relaxed & secure. Adaptil synthetically mimics the natural appeasing pheromones that mother dogs use to comfort & reassure their puppies.

When puppies are young, the presence of the appeasing pheromone produced by their mother provides them with the confidence & security to explore the world around them.  Adult dogs respond to this pheromone in a similar way to puppies, & as a result benefit from its comforting & reassuring properties in situations that may cause them to feel stressed or insecure.

I can report that I respond very well to this product. When I’m excited or anxious my huMom will spray a small amount of Adaptil near me & within seconds I calm down. Adaptil can be purchased in spray form, in a diffuser that you plug in the wall, or you can get Adaptil collars which last about a month.

What ever may stress your good dog, be it being alone, going in the car, loud noises, traveling, grooming, vet visits, new environments, visitors or if you are introducing a new member of the family, Adaptil will help your dog to remain calm & confident.
