The RSPCA estimates that 45% dogs in the UK show signs of fear or anxiety when they hear fireworks. Bonfire night is almost upon us so its important to take steps in advance to keep your dog as calm and relaxed as possible.
At Doggy Delights we recommend using herbal remedies to help relax your dog when in situations that may cause them to be stressed or anxious.
Alfie doesn’t bat an eyelid at fireworks, he’ll happily sit and watch them out the window. However Nelly is the complete opposite, fireworks send her into a nervous wreck and its so distressing for everybody watching them when they’re so frightened. I personally use Dorwest Scullcap & Valerian tablets to help take the edge off for her. I know its people always say you shouldn’t snuggle them when they’re frightened of fireworks because it’ll make them worse … but I do.
Dorwest Scullcap & Valerian Tablets for Dogs These should be given on a daily basis, this allows plenty of time to calm down and keep them stress free. These natural calming tablets are great for anxiety as they virtually have no side effects and are made using four active herbs; valerian root, Scullcap, mistletoe and gentian. These tablets are a perfect, non-sedative solution for relaxing pets on bonfire night.
Dorwest Valerian Compound This is another really great product for anxiety in dogs. This natural remedy can be given easily to dogs in a liquid form in their food, dropped into the mouth or sprinkles onto your pets bedding during the firework season. It is fast acting, starts to take effect in around 30 minutes and lasts for around two hours - perfect as a top up with Dorwest Scullcap & Valerian Tablets.
