When Samba's puppies were four weeks old, they moved into a pen in the kitchen and I began their introduction to noise. I kept a TV on a lot of the time and I clanged pots and pans and ran the dish washer and the blender and anything else I could think of to accustom them to household noises.
Then a few years ago that changed. Several of them started becoming anxious during thunder storms and especially at the sound of fireworks. Now Mackey is uneasy during thunder storms and Sebastian, Lola and Norma Jean show fear. Fireworks get all of them upset.
Norma Jean seems to be the worst. At the first sound of thunder, she climbs on my lap and starts clawing at me. I've tried taking her to the basement, keeping the room dark and playing loud music, but nothing distracts her.
Chewy offered Nutramax Cosequin Calm chewable tablets for review this month, I decided to try them. I didn't really expect them to work, but what did we have to lose?
She sauntered over to her pillow and laid down for a nap. Neither Rob nor I could believe it. She was relaxed, not panting, pacing and drooling. She didn't try to climb on us or claw at us.
These things worked!!!!
If your dog has a noise phobia you might want to try Nutramax Cosequin Calm. I don't guarantee the results because every dog is different, but these helped Norma Jean enormously and we'll be using them again next time a storm comes by. The key ingredients are L-theanine, magnolia and phellodrendron extracts.
Chewy sent us a box of Cosequin Calm at no expense to us in exchange for our honest review.
