|Scraps gets very nervous when it starts raining and especially when it starts thundering- he starts panting heavily, shaking uncontrollably, and pacing around the house trying to find a place to hide. He has climbed onto the dining table so scared and jumps back off, tries to hide under the kitchen sink cabinets, in the closet, in the tub... and one time, I came home from work and he had pooped on the dining table and on the stairs! (I think he just didn't know what to do he was so scared)
We have tried the DAP(dog appeasing pheromone) and it just doesn't work for him.
I have read that Benadryl is safe to give to dogs, and my Vet has told me it might help him with his anxiety from thunderstorms, but does anyone have experiences from using Benadryl to calm a dogs fears from loud noises, thunderstorms, or rain? I would just like to know more about it before giving him medicine.
