Chemical communication is one of the most important forms of communication for most of the animals that we work with. The term semiochemicals refers to all of the chemicals used by animals for communication. Pheromones are the specific chemicals that individual species of animals use to communicate with others of their species. Several synthetic pheromones have been commercially available for more than 20 years. This presentation will review the current pheromone research and the many ways in which pheromone therapy may be useful when preventing or responding to behavior problems in dogs, cats and horses.
