Get Ready For July 4th! 

As we get ready for Independence Day, keep a couple of things in mind: Our pets pick up on our emotions. So if we stay calm, they are able to remain calmer. We try to avoid medication solutions to fireworks anxiety if at all possible. One good suggestion from a behavior specialist is to sit and read with your feet resting on your dog. Do not talk to them, just read and don't react to the noise around you. They are in contact with you but see that you are not troubled by the noise. June is a good month to practice with the occasional thunderstorms we get. A dog who hides in the closet or bathroom is actually showing good sense when it comes to noise phobia! It is similar to us using a storm shelter during a tornado. It is a safe place for them. As long as they are not hurting themselves or damaging the room, speak calmly to them, provide a quiet radio for diversion, and let them be. Sometimes a "ThunderShirt" can add to that sense of comfort for the dog. Trembling alone is not a reason to jump into the medicine cabinet! It's when a dog becomes a danger to itself or others that we try medical intervention. However, medication alone doesn't serve the dog's needs. Using anti-anxiety medication and exposing the dog to the source of the anxiety can cause it to counteract its medication. So, it is still necessary to give your pet:

  • Quiet interior room   
  • Gentle music/talk radio        
  • Familiar comfort toy or clothing article     
  • Your presence

 If your pet gets too agitated during fireworks, you need to stay with it over the holiday! Our pets count on all of us.

Our office will be closed on Thursday, July 4th.
