Drugs for Your Pups

We’ve all heard of scaredy cats, but scaredy dogs?

40-50% of owners report their dogs get afraid of noise, such as thunder or fireworks. Some dogs get so bad, they develop an anxiety disorder called noise aversion.

The FDA recently approved Sileo, the first drug approved specifically to treat noise anxiety in dogs.

Experts say it takes away anxiety without drowsiness. You apply it near your dog’s gums, and it can be used up to five times during an event as directed. Signs your dog may be anxious are ears back, panting, excessive lip-licking, hiding, cowering.
