Calm Your Pet During Storms

Recognizing Signs

Identify signs like trembling, hiding, and excessive barking as indicators of storm anxiety in pets.

Safe Space

Designate a cozy area where your pet can retreat during storms. Provide familiar bedding and toys for comfort.

White Noise or Music

Play calming music or use white noise machines to mask thunder sounds and soothe your pet's nerves.

Positive Associations

Offer treats, toys, or activities your pet enjoys to create positive associations with stormy weather.

Calming Clothing

Consider anxiety wraps or vests that provide gentle pressure to help your pet feel more secure.

Desensitization Training

Gradually expose your pet to recorded storm sounds at low volumes to reduce sensitivity over time.

Consult a Professional

If anxiety persists, consult a veterinarian for expert advice and potential medications to alleviate storm-related stress.
