Does anyone use meds for storm-fearing dogs? Jackson is 4 1/2 now and has gotten progressively worse during thunderstorms. Rain, loud wind, etc, does NOT bother him, but thunder DOES. This morning, we had a little bit of thunder, not super loud, and ended within 10 mins, but he immediately jumped off the bed, began pacing, scratching at my gate, trying to get away. He used to just be okay with going under my bed for the duration of the storm. And last season, we had so many. He paces and he pants. I just want to be prepared since thunderstorms are right around the corner and I hate to see such a usually confident dog become so fearful. Believe me when I say I've tried de-sensitizing (he won't eat when he's that frightened, so rarely I may be able to get a bit of cheese for him, but it doesn't matter, he's still terrified), Thundershirt did nothing. I am certainly not opposed to trying prescribed medicine from the vet if I know that a storm is coming. It would make his life so much easier and mine. He is going to the vet on Monday for a dental cleaning and I may ask then. I just was curious if any of you had any experience with these meds and what they take, how it works, etc.
