New Drug Can Dope Dogs During Fireworks, Thunderstorms!
Each year I dread 4th of July, thunder storm activity or even a big win of a sports team, because my neighbors like to celebrate with explosive devices (Fireworks) that go on for hours all through the night.
My dog literally goes into complete ‘Meltdown Mode” she hyper ventilates, shakes and runs around panting. It’s like pure ‘torture’ for her as I’m sure for many other dogs as well.
I’ve tried everything to calm her and follow the Caesar Chavez method on how to handle it. But it doesn’t keep me from feeling heart broken for her and what she is going through.
Luckily there is a medicine for this particular issue with dogs and apparently it works well with little or no side effects. I hate the thought of putting any drug into my dog, but if it helps her feel better I might try it.
