I have been looking at alot of information over the past few months from behavior to foods and I am curious if or what people think about natural remedies for stress in dogs? Do they work? If you have any stories on this I would be interested I am sitting through hurricane dennis and my pets are affected by the wind and rain not to mention the pressure drop. This aside, I know that certain smells al least for me make me more relaxed or awake. Could the same be true for dogs???
Rescue Remedy works wonders-- I know many many breeders and owners who swear by it. i dont know how well it would work though with a traumatic event like a hurricaine, specially with the pressure drop and all. Everytime i have used it, it has made a significant difference in my dogs and kitten's stress levels. I give it to my pups the first few times we go travelling to get them used to the car and riding and they do fine. I wish you luck in Dennis! Sounds like you are gonna be close to landfall area for dennis. Good luck and be careful!

I use a product made by Dynamite called tranquil. It's for horses but works on dogs too. You spray it into their mouth. It's all natural but it really worked for me at the horse shows and when my yorkies are having their pups etc. I take their human vitamins too. You can find out more at wwww.dynamitemarketing.com
I had read about Rescue Remedy on the internet. My Beagle is so afraid of fireworks that she climbs up on me and starts shaking. Where I live kids start do fireworks the week before and after 4th of July. I have nerve pills for her, but I don't like to medicate her. So I tried Rescue Remedy. It seemed to work. she selpt better.When she'd hear the fireworks outside she didn't jump on me anymore. I just sat by her and talked to her. The only time I medicated her was on the 4th of July. It sounded like there was a war going on outside.
Thanks so much we made it throught he storm but I'd like to be prepared for the next one it is suppose to be a bad season and we we live we'll need it. I will check out the the information you all gave! Thank you!
