I'm sure lots of you have dogs that are afraid of thunder and fireworks. What do you do? Murray is petrified and there is no calming him. We try sitting with him on the couch and talking to him gently but he goes into a blind panic, running from room to room, panting. He is so scared I worry about him. With this being the 4th of July - it will be a loooooong weekend. I know I can talk to the vet about tranquilers. Do any of you use them? And, since its too late to get them for this weekend, any suggestions on how to calm him?
