Dog Talk #365 (3/29/2014)

Dog Talk (3/29/2014) #365: Dr. Daniel Mills came from the United Kingdom to give two lectures at the University of Pennsylvania vet school, invited by Dr. Carlo Siracusa, the Official veterinary Behaviorist of DOG TALK. In two discussions, Dr. Mills explains pheromonatherapy — synthetic versions of a cat’s own pheromones — that mimic the cat’s natural way to reassure itself that its physical environment in safe; then he speaks about how dogs are smarter — and less smart — than we think, and praises the Adaptil collar as a valualbe device to use for separation anxiety, travel anxiety, or as a preventive for stressful situations; Dr. Carlo discusses how the veterinary audience reacted to the information about the value of pheromone products.
