Our Fred used to get horribly afraid when it thundered. We discussed a thunder shirt for him, since he'd calm down somewhat if I just took him to bed and wrapped the covers tightly around him.
Our vet says they work, and a couple of her customers told me they work (one brought her dog in wearing one..he's afraid of car travel).
Fred seems to have mostly grown out of his fear...I guess he's learned that thunder doesn't mean he'll soon be up to his chin in nasty mud and water anymore. He was abandoned in a dog pen with three other very large dogs...that pen was very low, and became a shallow pond when it rained....warm or cold weather. There were two doghouses...the big dogs took them over, climbing up on top, leaving him in the muck.
He now has his own nice doghouse...three bedroom, two bath, with air and heat.
Actually he has two of 'em, one is brand new, on wheels!
If age is a state of mind, and I've lost my mind, I'm AGELESS, right?
