Linda Ryder, D.V.M.

The fear and anxiety associated with noise is commonly called noise sensitivity or thunderstorm fear. Common triggers for fear are fireworks, thunder, celebrations, construction work, or traffic or street noise. If left untreated, noise aversion can progress resulting in an increased intensity of signs. There is a new FDA-approved treatment indicated for the treatment of this aversion. The drug is known as Sileo and is comes in a convenient gel-dosing syringe which is given orally to a dog. Please contact your vet to help your dog with this fear.
