rsOur golden panics with thundetorms, fireworks and sounds of gun shots. We have had to use up to 10mgm of valium at times without much success. This was after Rescue Remedy and a stronger tranquilizer for dogs. Even if she thinks a storm is coming she starts pacing, panting, looking for a place to hide and scratching the carpets. This summer we have had a zillion (it seems)thunder storms, usually at night, lasting hours! 2 weeks ago I bought her a Thunder Shirt)www.thundershirt.com. Last Saturday we had major storms all day. When we heard about the forecast we put the shirt on Lucy. OMG....First of all she loved wearing it. Sort of pranced around like, "look at me in my new outfit!" The storms started, no pacing, no panting, no scratching the carpet or looking for a place to hide. We could not believe it! It is a miracle. Yesterday, storms all day....no problem. I was so sure it would not work. Was I ever wrong. If you have a dog that is anxious........get one. You will be amazed!
