Our 3 year old Great Pyr suffers terribly from storm anxiety. Nothing works, neither Xanax or Benadryl. Has anyone had any luck with the above two medicines?

Storm anxiety
by: Reginald Craft

Adaptil worked very well for our Pyr. In addition, we have used Peppermint oil and Lavender oil to some effect (2-3 drops on each from paw).

Anxiety
by: Donna

I have heard Rock Rose, Bach Flower, can work.

See this website for more details:

I believe it's a drop in their drinking water once a day for two weeks and then use it as needed (You can also a drop to a treat, on food or rub it on the paws or ears).

It's not a guarantee it will work but it's worth a try. Other than that, give you dog a closet with his bed in it with the door ajar for him to come and go.

Adaptil didn't work for us
by: Anonymous

I tried adaptil, thunder shirts, dark closet, etc, xanax, benedryl, etc. Recently, harp music helped.

pyrs and storm anxiety
by: Anonymousmary

Having had a wonderful girl for 6 years, and 5 golden retrievers prior,we were very surprised when Lily dove under a bed at our cabin in Northern Wisconsin during a thunder storm.

She just doesn't like thunder storms. I do think it is the change of atmospheric pressure, the electrical charges and noise that prompt her to pace.

A thunder shirt has worked beautifully. She looks like a really large Q-tip. She also like to go into a dark closet.
