If you’ve spent any time hanging around here, you know that I have a pretty spoiled and pretty special pup named Delilah. She’s a 7 year old lab mix who came to my husband and I as a 6 week old rescue puppy and quickly worked her way into our hearts. She has the best personality! Delilah is one of those dogs that loves to go on an adventure with you no matter what it entails, but she also loves to just lie around on a lazy day. Her favorite things are going for car rides, chasing her frisbee, and staring out my office window. It has the perfect spot for her to rest her head and people watch.
After we moved from Tennessee to Texas, my husband and I started to notice little changes in Delilah’s behavior. It was mostly when there were loud noises like fireworks, or thunderstorms. Something that had never bothered her in the past, was suddenly turning her little puppy dog world upside down. It started with her clinging to us during storms, but has since gradually become full on storm anxiety. During a storm she will pant heavily, pace and shake. She also does a lot of nervous licking and swallowing, and if she isn’t on top of us she will hide in a dark space. Her favorite places to hide during storms are under my desk, or in our dark basement. It can be a little difficult to get work done, or get some sleep during storms.
Now that we have moved back to the Midwest (and tornado alley), the storms are much more frequent. I’ve learned that not playing in to her storm anxiety does help some. If she reads from us that the storm is no big deal and we continue our routine like nothing is happening, then she will calm down ever so slightly. There is still the panting and pacing, but it does diminish a bit. Also letting her find a place to hide where she feels safe can help, but she usually won’t stay there long if one of us isn’t with her.
What helps the most, though, is giving her NOW® Pets Pet Relaxant. It’s an all natural supplement that comes in a flavored chewable tablet. Not only does she think she is getting a tasty treat, it also helps her stay relaxed and content during storms. The panting subsides, the shaking stops and she is able to nap contentedly while the storm rages on. Which means I’m able to relax knowing she is no longer scared out of mind.
I was asked to try out the NOW® Pets Supplements line, and the Pet Relaxant in particular. It really does help alleviate the stress and anxiety that can accompany things like storms, separation and travel. Plus, the supplements come from a well known, family owned company. NOW® Foods has been a leader in the natural health products and supplements industry for years and their new NOW® Pets line comes with the same quality and integrity. Knowing the all natural supplements are produced at the same high standards as the human line helps me rest easy giving them to my furry family member.
