While July 4th celebrations are probably going to be dialed down this year, chances are people will be setting them off even more in neighborhoods, and that can be downright terrifying for your dog. If your pet trembles, whines, drools, or clings to you when he hears loud noises, he likely suffers from a condition known as noise aversion.
There are several things you can do to help your pet get through these events such as putting your pet in a quiet room and turn on soothing music, or distracting your dog with games and toys.
If behavior modification and distraction aren’t enough, there are other remedies to try including Thundershirts, herbal tinctures, anti-anxiety medications and sedatives. If you have questions or need to get meds for your pet, book an appointment online or call us at 541-593-8128.
