Frequently asked questions

Can I give my dog melatonin for fireworks?

Yes, melatonin may help your dog if they have fireworks anxiety.

Melatonin is a naturally occurring hormone. It has the ability to help dogs in many ways, even helping with anxiety by promoting sleep.

Can dogs die from fireworks?

Dogs cannot die from fireworks. The stress that comes with fireworks anxiety can sometimes become overbearing.

If their underlying respiratory or cardiovascular health was already compromised, stress could push them over the edge with increased heart rate, respiratory rate, and blood pressure.

Can fireworks give a dog a heart attack?

Although extremely unlikely, fireworks can give your dog a heart attack. This is especially true if your dog has an underlying heart condition.

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, pant, and scratch the carpet 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, their 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.
