Dogs and fireworks advice

Does bonfire night make your dog fearful & anxious?

We love fireworks but they frighten your dog

Our calming supplements can have a big impact on the behaviour of anxious dogs. They are used to help reduce separation anxiety in dogs and can alse reduce a dogs fear of loud noises, perfect for the firework season.

VetSpec Professional Calm & Focused is an innovative canine additive which is ideal for all pet dogs to help reduce anxiety and fear based behaviour. It is specially formulated by experienced nutritionists with scientifically proven ingredients including tryptophan; a natural precursor of serotonin and the yeast products FOS and MOS to help maintain a healthy gut environment.

By planning ahead of bonfire night you could help your dog by providing it with a safe haven from all the noise of firework season. Ideally this should be a quiet room that the dog feels is a safe and happy place for it to go. You can create this by putting your dogs favourite toys in there and not imposing yourself.

What to do when the fireworks start

Follow these simple steps when the fireworks start:

  • If you have a dog, or know of a freinds dog, that isn't bothered by fireworks and gets along with your dog, keeping them together may help your dog to realise there isn't anything to be afraid of.
  • Close all windows in the room that you are keeping your dog in and black them out to stop any problems that might be casued by the flashing lights.
  • Don't igonre your dog. Dogs are social animals that enjoy their owners company. Keep checking in on your dog and play with them.

What customers say about VetSpec Calm & Focused

"I have been trialling 'calmers' for 30 years with limited success rates. In 2009 I tried VetSpec Calmer with one of my own dogs with great success. Since then I have recommended it to many of my clients. In fear or anxiety-related problems this product gives great benefit. I have personally witnessed it help a badly treated rescued Springer Spaniel live a normal life. I strongly recommend this product to anyone whose dog is suffering with any kind of fear based or anxiety-based behaviour"
