When dogs are scared of loud noises

Jack and Nolene hate loud noises of any kind, they are terrified and cower pitifully if they hear them.   This is a difficult time of year for all pets who are scared of big bangs, we have Halloween at the end of this month, then the dreaded fireworks week and on to New Year and more bangers are let off.    Helping dogs to relax naturally is the best way to manage the ‘noise phobia’ condition.   You can get sedatives from the vet but we find that herbal products work really well.   We start giving Scullcap and Valerian tablets several weeks before the event, they are a fully licensed herbal product that are effective in relaxing both cats and dogs.   Cats suffer from anxiety when they hear loud bangs just as much as dogs and these herbal tablets help them too.

Scullcap and Valerian tablets help to decrease the activity of the central nervous system without sedation or chemical muscle relaxants.  They do not cause drowsiness or alter normal behaviour, nor do they lose effectiveness over time.    If a dog or cat is naturally anxious or nervous they are an effective every day solution.   They can be given long term so it’s not just for bonfire night.  We find that all nervous or easily stressed dogs benefit from.    The dose is 1 tablet per 5kg of bodyweight daily, given as 2 split doses, in the morning and again in the evening.   At times of crisis you can double up the dose and it’s advisable to give this higher dose at the beginning of the problem time.

If you’d like a leaflet giving more info please let us know.    We’ve used these for years and know they work – a recent testimonial:

Last year I was very concerned about how my dog was reacting to the nightly firework noise building up to Bonfire Night.   She was always very distressed and there was nothing I could do to comfort her.   I was recommended Scullcap and Valerian Tablets by my vet.   I bought some but was not really confident in seeing much improvement in her behaviour.  How wrong I was!   Although still frightened, she coped with the firework noise much more calmly and stayed with me instead of trying to get behind the television or hiding upstairs.   There was no panting and gasping as there had been before.  I used them again on the build up to New Year’s Even and again she was much less distressed than on previous years.  I cannot thank you enough.
