Travel, Thunder, or Firework Anxiety

If travel, thunder, or fireworks upset your pet, he or she may benefit from tranquilization or sedation. While sedated, the animal will stay awake or sleep lightly but can be roused when stimulated. To minimize any potential risk associated with tranquilization or sedation, we need to assess each animal individually before we dispense these medications.

Please contact us if you would like to set up an assessment or discuss sedation with us.

Another option for anxiety, is a ThunderShirt. Thundershirts work by applying a constant, gentle pressure on a dog’s torso which has a calming effect for most dogs. To be sure you purchase the correct size, measure your dog’s chest just behind the front legs at it’s largest point. To get more information, contact us.
