Our dog is very afraid of wind, rain, thunder, and lightning. She paces back and forth, shakes and pants. Is there any way to help her with this problem?
I'm afraid she will have a heart attack. She's been doing this for only about one year. She is 5 years old.
Try buying "weather" tapes and play them in the house. Start out with the volume low and gradually increse the volume over a long period of time ( about 2 months). If this does not desensitize her then ask your vet for ace promazine ( a sedative) vetcare
