Many pet owners have experienced the frustration of dealing with their dog’s fear of loud noises. Countless dogs are lost around the Fourth of July holiday due to fireworks. Thunderstorms can also cause dogs to run away from home among other erratic behaviors. Dogs have been known to jump through windows, run into traffic or simply disappear never to be seen again. It is distressing to watch your furkid in a pure panic attack when thunder booms or the neighbors light fireworks.
There are several remedies to calm dogs that exhibit a fear of loud noises. Rescue Remedy, Calming Essence, Five Flower Formula and Rock Rose are popular treatments while some dogs are prescribed anti-anxiety medication such as buspirone. Sedation isn’t an effective treatment. A sedated dog is a terrified dog simply too drugged to react. We have had less than satisfactory results with extract blends like Rescue Remedy, Calming Essence etc.
Our Favorite Treatment for Furkids with Noise Phobia
We have had excellent results with Tranquility Blend from Animals’ Apawthecary. Tranquility Blend is similar to Rescue Remedy, Calming Essence and Five Flower Formula in that it is a blend of plant extracts. This particular blend has worked wonders for us, though. Simply give the dog 20-40 drops of the formula. Our dogs and clients dogs have calmed down within 5 minutes. They don’t act even slightly drugged. We don’t know what it is about this formula but it works. So, if you have had less than satisfactory results with other homeopathic blends and don’t want to drug your furkid into a coma, give Tranquility Blend a try. We believe you will be happy with the results and like ourselves, you won’t be caught without a bottle on hand.
