Nine out of ten people don’t realize there are solutions to their pet’s behavior problems, and in frustration, often give them up to a shelter. Many of these shelter pets die needlessly. Ceva Animal Health, makers of Feliway® and Adaptil™ pheromone products and the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists want pet owners to know they can “keep their love with their pet alive” with medically sound options from your veterinarian to treat these problems—before it’s too late.

About the LAPD K-9 Platoon: In November of 1979, two Los Angeles Police Department officers recognized an urgent need for specialized canine work in the City of Los Angeles. In April 1980, approval was given to train two search dogs for a pilot program within the West Bureau of the Police Department. The achievements of these two dogs were so astounding that, after two months, the one-year trial program was declared a total success. During its two decade-plus years of operation, an increasing demand for the unique services provided by the K-9 Platoon has allowed it to gradually grow until the entire City now has rapid access to search dogs on a twenty-four hour basis.
