My 13 year old Jack Russell Terrier starting experiencing extreme anxiety as a result of noise at the age of 10. THe major culprits are thunderstorms and fireworks; however he is nervous if the windows are open at night and he can hear traffic noise, and he increasingly does not want to stay outside because of noises--tree locusts, loud cars, etc. His reaction to storms and fireworks is extreme and lasts for hours after the noise has ceased. He trembles violently, paces, pants, drools, and keeps his tail tucked. Sometimes, he even becomes anxious when he senses a storm coming, or even if he notices it is lightly raining.

The natural meds he is on (Resources) seemed to help with the sort of normal anxiety related to minor noises, but nothing works with the loud noises. I have tried the THundershirt, Chen Calmer (which he still takes) and prescription meds, which totally make him lose control and he is still frightened.

I would be willing to try this but have not seen any testimonials of its success in dogs with similar problems. He does not, nor has he ever had separation anxiety. This is totally noise (and age?) related. It's a lot of money to spend (even with the money back guarantee--dual shipping fees and 20% processing fee). I say this because I have invested hundreds in every "solution" that comes along. I would gladly do it if it would help him. Do you have any clients who have had success with something similar to this?

Anxietrex has become available only recently so it is too early to have gotten testimonials. Last weekend I sent home Anxietrex, Neutrix, and Shen calmer for one of my dog patients with night and storm anxiety. Monday the owner reported things were much better. But the weather hasn't been bad either and that will be the real test. I will be able to say more once another storm moves through.
