Dorwest Herbs very kindly shared this incredibly useful information coming up to firework season.
1 MONTH to go
Anxiety remedies for dogs can work on the most severe of phobia cases. We recommend giving them our Dorwest Scullcap & Valerian Tablets daily, starting now! These anxiety tablets for dogs are completely natural and chemical free! Start on 1 tablet per 5 kg’s of bodyweight.
Consider starting a firework desensitisation programme now. This will gently get your pet used to fireworks sounds and help reduce their fear.
10 DAYS to go!
It might be necessary for severe phobias to double the dose from this point. Pets with moderate phobias may only need this the day before and the day of Fireworks. If you have started giving the tablets a bit later, it may also be a good idea to start the double dose at this point.
Create a safe place
A pet crate covered with a heavy blanket, containing treats, favourite toys and a water bowl provides a nice hidey-hole for a pet to escape to. Give your pet time to get used to it and never force them to go in.
ONE DAY to go
If necessary, double the dose of our Dorwest Scullcap & Valerian Tablets (or start giving it now – it’s never too late!).
The Valerian Compound is a brilliant tool to use alongside our Scullcap & Valerian Tablets. It will boost the effect of the tablets for situations that your pet finds more stressful. This can be used on its own, or alongside the tablets.
The concentrated herbal extracts in this liquid supplement will create a noticeable change in pet’s behaviour within 30 minutes, without causing any drowsiness. The effects are short-lived, making it perfect for Fireworks and thunderstorms.
