Thunderstorm Anxiety in Dogs

The storm season began early this year! We had thunderstorms last night and Chipper kept me awake. I put him on Solliquin pills a week ago and apparently the effects can take up to 30 days to show an effect. Last year I had used Harmonease, which is no longer produced, so my vet gave me Solliquin.

Do you have a fraidy dog?

I tried anxiety wraps with my springer, but they only made her hot.

What worked well last night was locking Chipper in his cage. He settled down very quickly and I got some sleep!
