Does Your Dog Have Noise Anxiety?
As summer sets in, owners with dogs that appear to be anxious every time there is a thunderstorm, or their family has a barbecue, or fireworks are set off for 4th of July are looking for a way to make their furry family member more comfortable and less anxious.
An at home medication that may be helpful is produced by Zoetis called Sileo. This oral gel is easy and convenient to give at home and used properly doesn’t give your dog the strong sedation effect often seen with other medications.
If you are interested in completing a checklist of triggers and behaviors that will provide you with a complete report you can share with your vet to figure out if Sileo is an option to help your dog then follow this link to Dogs’ Noise Aversion Checklist. This checklist includes the actual sound triggers so if you aren’t sure what triggers may affect your pet than you can have your dog listen to the sounds through your computer and watch for any changes in behavior. There is also a list of behaviors to select from that may help you watch for reactions that you didn’t know your pet was having.If you would like to talk to our vet about the possibility of starting your pet on Sileo for noise anxiety than please call our office and we will be happy to assist you.
