Adaptil Express (formerly Stress Relief Now) tablets are a non-pheromone, natural ingredient based tablet which can be used as little as two hours before the required effect. Ideal for predictable short-term events such as house parties, vet visits and fireworks. They can also be used in conjunction with the range of Adaptil pheromone products. Please scroll down for more information.
Adaptil Express tablets are a new addition to the Adaptil range, they contain natural ingredients designed to support your dog during short-term events. The palatable tablets can be given as little as 2 hours before the anticipated event and will last for 4 hours.
Adaptil Express tablets are a combination of GABA, L-tryptophan, L-theanine and B vitamins. They provide fast and temporary relief during short trips in the car or even for events such as house moves and parties.
There is no longer any need to stress or worry when last minute events occur as the tablets can be used as little as two hours before the required effect! And will last for 4 hours afterwards. For best results the Adaptil tablets should be used in conjunction with the wider range of Adaptil pheromone products.
The tablets can be used in anticipation of any predictable short-term occasional challenging events that can be stressful for your dogs such as:
GABA (Gamma-aminobutyric acid) - The main inhibitory neurotransmitter in humans and dogs. It plays a central role in relaxation and limits the nerve cell activity in areas of the brain associated with anxiety.
L-tryptophan - An amino-acid which increases serotonin synthesis. It has been shown to reduce aggressiveness in dogs and stress related behaviours.
L-theanine - An amino-acid which increases the release of GABA and also inhibits the binding of the excitatory transmitter L-glutamic acid to its receptors. It has been shown to reduce anxiety and improve learning abilities.
B Vitamins (B1, B3, B6, B8, B12) - Are essential nutrients, indispensable for normal functioning of the brain system. As a group they help the body cope with the effects of stress.
The number of tablets to administer per dog and per day is presented in the table below.
Quantity per dose

Administer tablet(s) two hours before the beginning of the expected challenging event.

Tablets can be easily given with or without food.
For best results, in some situations (such as fear of loud noises), it’s recommended to use Adaptil Tablets in combination with an Adaptil Diffuser.

Below are some recent questions we've received regarding Adaptil Express Tablets, including answers from our team.
Hi. Just wondering if you can help me? Does Viovet sell any dog calming tablets that are like/similar to Adaptil Express Tablets? If so, which ones are they? Thanks.
Thank you for your question.
The YuCalm, KalmAid and Anxitane all contain similar ingredients.
I hope this helps.

The tablets are really intended for short term use over a particular event such as fireworks. You would probably find the diffuser more useful which would last around 6 months. However it does sound like your dog would benefit from help from an animal behaviourist alongside the adaptil. You can find some useful tips on apbc.org.uk.
Can i use tablets every day .. its fireworkes time.. my dog is in stres every evening
It would be safe to use the tablets everyday but you may find that there is a diminishing effect the longer you use it. You could also try the adaptil diffuser alongside the tablets to give a better effect. The other thing you could do is build your dog a den so that he/she has a dark place to hide away from flashing lights and will muffle the sound of the fireworks. If your dog sleeps in a cage this would be ideal with some bedding inside and blankets thrown over the top away from any windows.
hi is it ok to use this 1 tablet a day With the maximum dose of stay calm oil at different times of the day I use stay calm about 3 times a day .
These tablets contain particular nutrients which if boosted just before a stressful event, might help to reduce the effects of that stress. They are safe and should be completely OK if used alongside other treatments. The only thing I would say is that they are intended as a short-term help for particular events, rather than to be given every day for an extended period of time. If you do give them long-term they should still be perfectly safe, but I am not sure that any benefits would be fully maintained.
