Storms and Fireworks, Oh My
During the Fall months, our pets can be upset by changes in routine, travel, visitors, or have noise aversion fears due to storms and fireworks. If your pet needs help with any of these issues, be sure to call and ask as we have several solutions we can try.
Sileo (dexmedetomidine oromucosal gel) is the first and only FDA-approved treatment for dogs that suffer from noise aversion. This medication is prescribed by your veterinarian to help calm your dog when your pet is frightened by loud noises. Common noise aversion triggers include fireworks, thunder, construction work, traffic or street noise, celebrations, vacuum cleaners and smoke detectors. Sileo works by blocking norepinephrine, a brain chemical similar to adrenaline that pumps up anxiety.
There are also other products that can be used for calming, Solliquin and Composure Pro are natural supplements that are used in both dogs and cats that does take some time to get a loading dose in your pet's system but can help calm general anxieties. Feliway and Adaptil are calming pheromones that can be plugged in, used in sprays, or wipes for both dogs and cats.
If any of these first line solutions aren't working, your pet may need a prescription medication and/or behavior consultation with the veterinarian. We are happy to discuss any and all solutions to make sure your pet is comfortable, relaxed, and happy this summer !
Do not hesitate to call if you need any help or advice with medications for travel or anxiety with storms and fireworks. 630-655-3800
