Fireworks Noise Phobia

Updated: Sep 22, 2020

Fourth of July FIREWORKS are quickly approaching! Unfortunately, noise phobia is a serious condition that many of our precious pets suffer from, and it is our responsibility as pet parents to make sure they do not suffer unnecessarily



Speak with your veterinarian to discuss prescription drug options. The right medication will help your pet remain calm while not causing significant sedation

Since medications require a trial to determine whether any adjustments are necessary, it is best to speak to your veterinarian this week if possible. Getting them the appropriate medication often does not even require a trip to the vet, just a call

The best medications are those that have a quick onset of action (usually within an hour) and short duration of effect (4–6 hours). These include Sileo, Alprazolam, Trazodone, Clonidine, and Gabapentin


Avoid medications such as acepromazine as they provide sedation without the anti-anxiety effect, and could potentially cause an increase in fear
