View Full Version : Firework Night.....

31st October 2011, 10:54 AM
:d*g: Hi there, just wondered if anyone had tried Seren Um Calm Tablets. My Ruby who is nearly 8 yrs is terrified
of Bin Men and now Firework Season is upon us.... She has a bad heart and is on a heap load of tabs, Vetmedin, Furesimide,
Benadryl but I phoned vet and they say is ok to use these tabs.... Its early days (i only started yesterday but wondered if
anyone had any experience of them....

Thanks Rose :smile:

Have tried them but dont know if they work .Also have a look at a Dap Diffuser from Vet UK and Dorwest
Herbs do a SkullCap and Valerian tablet which is a nutural calmer, only other thing is turn the telly up a bit
more and keep Ruby near to you for protection .My Daisy has PSOM but if Poppy hears any bangs she starts
barking which of course starts all the others off.

:wink: Thanks for your comments... Will see if they work.... She is such a sweetheart but I suppose I should be
used to it by now.... Last year I tried Rescue Remedy but she acted quiet strange on them.... I do turn tv up
and have made a little camp for her under dining room table.... :thnku:

Last year I gave the SkullCap tablets but two of mine had the trots so I think this year I will keep to
the Dap and just keep them with me with telly up a bit .

Skullcap is a natural muscle relaxer, and can have the same effect on humans.:wink:

I think it relaxed Rosie's bottom muscles a bit too much .

Have you heard of Thundershirt?

I am not sure if they make it in the UK, but it gets rave reviews over here. I got one for both of my dogs for Thunderstorms. Here is some info about them:

I also think the DAP diffuser does help. I have used DAP for my dog Lucky as well as Rescue Remedy.
