Do you groan every time you think about thunderstorms, fireworks and loud noises that will bring on shaking, panting, nervousness, and sometimes even self-destructive behaviors? Are these the symptoms your pet exhibits due to noise anxieties?

All PET can help! We are offering three types of relief:

  • pheromones that trigger feelings of comfort
  • dietary herbal calmatives to ease nerve transmission
  • compression therapy that applies a gentle and constant calming effect.

Canine pheromones are a synthetic version of the pheromone a mother dog puts off while she is nursing her puppies. This triggers the canine brain to remember how comforting it was at mother’s side and under her protection. All PET offers products containing this pheromone like Comfort Zone with D.A.P., Quiet Moments calming spray and the GOOD Behavior collar. Herbal dietary supplements help support the nervous system in reducing stress and tension. All PET offers NaturVet’s Quiet Moments and HomeoPet’s Natural Anxiety Relief drops.

All PET is also proud to now offer the Thundershirt, a garment for dogs that applies gentle and constant pressure as a therapy to relieve persistent anxiety. Think of why we swaddle a baby, run cattle through a squeeze chute, or treat autism with pressure; it is comforting! The Thundershirt is safe, effective, drug free, and easy to use; it offers solutions for many behavioral issues in addition to noise anxiety.

So come in to your favorite All PET store today! We will help you customize a solution for tomorrow’s thunderstorms, fireworks, and whatever goes bump in the night.

Fact: Every year, July 5th is one of the busiest days for pet shelters and rescues. Scared by painfully loud noises and blinding lights, pets become frantic to escape the stimulus only to become separated from their owners. The lucky ones are found by caring individuals who try to reunite them with their families. But many are never found or meet disastrous ends. The pets that do make it through the firework displays face another danger. Contact with very hot or flaming fireworks can result in severe burns of the face, mouth and paws. Even unlit fireworks can be quite dangerous or lethal.  Fireworks contain many agents including black powder, potassium nitrate and heavy metals such as mercury, antimony, copper, barium, strontium, and phosphorus. Ingestion or absorption of even small amounts of these chemicals can result in severe illness. As a pet parent, there are simple steps you can take to ensure pets’ safety during the Independence Day holiday. By following these suggestions, we are sure that you and your pets can safely enjoy July 4th and July 5th this year!
 
• Before you start your firework celebration, exercise your pet so that they will be able to rest quietly in the evening without excess energy.
 
• Very Important! Make sure all pets have a collar and easy-to-read identification tag. Consider having your pet micro-chipped, because collars and tags are not foolproof.
 
• Close all doors and windows. Make sure to close and lock all pet doors. Turn on a TV or radio for some background noise.
 
• Arrange an enclosed indoor area for your pet to feel secure away from noise and lights. Choose a crate for your dog, or a bathroom or bedroom for your cat, but never leave them outside or take them to the show. Turn all small animal and bird cages away from the lights and noise and consider covering them during the worst of the display. Also, give small animals lots of bedding to burrow down in; it will help them feel much safer.
 
• Try to avoid leaving your pet alone. Allow them to vocalize and demonstrate their distress. Do not try to cuddle or comfort your pets as they will interpret this as you being worried too. Instead, stay relaxed and act normally. Reward your pets for calm behavior. Distract them with a special treat or toy.
 
• Even if your pet has never exhibited extreme sensitivity to the loud noises and flashes during past experiences, consider having natural stress remedies, like herbal pills or drops on hand. Consult with your veterinarian about prescription sedatives for severe cases.
 
• Finally, diligently retrieve and properly dispose of any and all firework paraphernalia before you allow your pets outside. Do not consider that you can properly supervise them while you work on pick-up.  BL
