Diane, Here's a link to a CD for Fireworks to help desensitize pooches to the noise...
I used the thunderstorm version for Naddie as she was horribly 'terrorized' by them when she first came to me. I played it daily...several times a day starting with lowest volume and only seconds then off. Repeated this for a bit them still low volume but longer duration... then went to higher volume and back to 'seconds' and so on.
It really did help her a lot.... she still doesn't 'like' them but copes so much better...mostly goes to one of her beds near me and waits it out.

Dogs Afraid of Fireworks! Use Suburban Fireworks to Ease their Fears!

If you scroll a bit you can tak a listen to the CD.

Dianne - I'm so sorry. Poor Rocky. I'm glad that Terry found something to desensitize Rocky. I think that might work if you do it in small doses and turn it up over a period of time. I also know that Crystal sells Animal Essentials calming product and also thundershirts. Pampered Pet Boutique LLC Home Page You might want to get in touch with her to order from her.

The desensitiving sounds like a good idea. Also, I agree with Sue about the Thundershirt. My vet actually recommended that for Zoe a couple of months ago for separation anxiety. Also, I bought something made by Bach's called Rescue Remedy. It's liquid and you give them 3 or 4 drops and it works in about 20 minutes or so. You have to be sure you get the one for pets....I ordered it from a place called Entirely Pets and it was for humans . The difference is the one for humans contains alcohol, its a low dose but still not for fluffs. Just be sure its for pets and your okay.

Thank you Barbara..the only fear I have is Rocky doesn't like me dressing him up much anymore. I'm wondering if it will bother him to have it on..LOL. Or will the shirt calm that too. LOL. I have thought about the drops, I'll write that name down. Thanks again.

I know why your saying about being dressed it stresses Zoe out sometime too that's why I never bought the Thundershirt. If Rocky doesn't like clothes I would not try it. The drops are a better option. Hate to see them suffer like that.

Jasmine is afraid of everything from small sounds to big sounds. She doesn't even like to go outside to do her business if she hears a sound. I have to go outside with her and then of course run back inside because it's cold.
