Many dogs don’t enjoy loud noises, but some suffer from noise aversion and are downright terrified of any kind of commotion. Lots of sounds can set them off, and often, the noises that freak out our dogs are fairly commonplace to us. The most common triggers of noise aversion in dogs are parties (our own or our neighbors’), thunder, construction, traffic and street noise. If your dog trembles, furrows his brow, whimpers, hides or clings to you when he hears loud noises such as these, he likely suffers from noise aversion, and he may benefit from Sileo.
Sileo is a new, fast-acting noise aversion treatment that’s easy to administer at home. It helps dogs that are afraid of loud noises feel more at ease without sedation. For increased effectiveness, it can be used in conjunction with noise aversion training.
Some of our clients have also reported that Sileo has helped with their dog’s travel anxiety, but that has not been confirmed as a benefit by the company.
