With storm season approaching in the tropics, now is the time for you to start thinking about preventative methods for calming your pooch before a storm.
Products such as the Aussie Pooch Mobile Lavender Aromacare spray can give a dog a sense of calm and safety and reduce the tension that the dog feels when there is a storm.
To help pets during the storm, owners need to desensitize pets to loud noise or remove them from the outside to give a feeling of safety.
Owners should try not to pet or baby the dog while it is afraid as this will only reinforce the fear. Instead, leave it in a safe quiet place.
Other remedies, such as rescue remedy, herbal medications or sedatives, may help. As always please refer to your veterinarian for help and advice on this.
