Will Benadryl calm my dog during fireworks?

Benadryl is typically well tolerated by most dogs and can help them sleep.

However, Benadryl should not be given to dogs with certain health conditions. As always, speak with your veterinarian prior to giving your dog Benadryl.

Lastly, Benadryl may actually increase your dog's anxiety. So be careful giving this medication to your dog.

Is Your Dog Panting During Fireworks?

Many dogs that shake, scratch the floor, and pant heavily are feeling anxious. This anxiety can be driven by fear or you have an anxious dog on your hands.

Can fireworks cause dog diarrhea?

When a dog is scared, his body goes into fight-or-flight mode. This causes him to release adrenaline, which in turn speeds up his digestive system. As a result, he may feel the need to relieve himself even if he doesn't really have to go.
