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?
