Symptoms displayed by dogs with canine noise aversion
"The fear and anxiety associated with noise is commonly called noise sensitivity, anxiety or phobia, depending upon the types and severity of clinical signs. Noise aversion is a term used to encompass the spectrum of degrees of fear and anxiety associated with noise." -- Zoetis US
What is canine noise aversion? This excellent page will get you up to speed on that subject!
My wonderful and trusted vet Dr. Katie Estill at Desert Trails Vet Services in Winnemucca, Nevada prescribes using SILEO to help calm dogs who are exposed to stressful noise events.
SILEO helps to alleviate signs of noise aversion by:
- Calming without sedating, so that the dog remains fully functional to interact normally with the family
- Reducing the dog’s suffering and distress and, subsequently, the pet owner’s stress, helping to preserve the human-animal bond
