[New Product] ThunderEssence Aromatherapy for Dogs

Find ThunderEssence at 1800PetMeds

Fear is an emotion we all experience. Our pets experience fear and anxiety, too. There are even more things to be afraid of for them, though. Dogs don’t understand that the loud booming they hear is only harmless fireworks, or that the person that brings the mail every day is a friend, not a foe. Keeping your dog calm during upsetting circumstances can be a challenge. It’s now possible to use the safe, pleasant treatment of aromatherapy as a quick way to ease your pet’s stress.

Is dog anxiety medication the best solution?

Dog anxiety medicine can be helpful in extreme cases but should be used with caution. If your pet is currently on other medications, anxiety medication for dogs may result in drug interaction that could be dangerous. This is especially true if your dog’s current medication alters the natural serotonin level.

In the majority of acute cases of dog anxiety caused by noise or a disruption in the normal routine, natural remedies and solutions are the best choice. If your dog suffers from continuous separation anxiety, a professional dog trainer can help teach your dog how to cope with the stress of being without you for extended periods of time.

How to help dogs with anxiety

  • Do your neighbors complain about your dog’s constant barking while you’re away? Separation anxiety is likely the cause. Although it may be difficult, consciously make an effort not to show too much emotion when you are leaving or when you come home. When you greet your dog with too much attention and affection, it actually may act as a reward for any barking or bad behavior while you were out. Similarly, if you act sorry or sad that you have to leave your pet, your behavior can become the anxiety trigger.
  • Give your pet something to do that will capture his or her attention during an upsetting or disturbing event. Offering your pet a favorite dog toy (especially one that dispenses treats) can occupy the mind and channel anxious energy in a positive direction.
  • Using a safe, comfortable crate can keep your pet from pacing or indulging in destructive behavior like chewing up shoes or sofa cushions. Once your pet becomes accustomed to staying in a crate, it provides a sense of safety and private space that can help ease anxiety and chaotic feelings.
  • Make sure your pet gets plenty of exercise and scheduled playtime with you on a regular basis. Going for a walk, run or swim prior to an anticipated stressful event can help get rid of pent-up energy and put your dog in a relaxed physical and emotional state.

  1. My dog Serg has major anxiety! He gets scared easy! We got a thunder coat but it only helps so much! I am always trying to find other things that may work!

  2. Our pet neds help during the July 4th holiday and New Years Eve. He hides and dislikes very load noises. We try to cuddle him and wrap him in a blanket during those times.

  3. Yoshi, my 12-year old shih tzu, was attacked and injured last June, and since then has displayed more anxiety than usual during thunderstorms, fireworks, or loud noises/people outside. He’s never been too keen with loud, scary noises but has always managed to keep himself calm by going to his crate, until recently. It’s so hard to see him so anxious and unable to find relief after what he went through! We just want him to feel safe and secure!

  4. My dog Colby gets very anxious when we have any kind of house guests! Normally he’s a very friendly dog but when folks “move in and stay awhile” he just retreats and shakes. I would love to try this for him especially since we are expecting relatives to stay here a week in April!

  5. My poor babies are so anxious when they go to the vet, I need something to help them through the visit and this sounds like it. I’m ready for them to try it.

  6. Always looking for something new for my Husky who is terrified of storms

  7. According to vets, I have an “overbred” Bichon. Vets have recommended prescription drugs which I refuse to give. I have to console and train him daily. The slightest “different” noise sends him running and/or barking. He often vibrates from fear so terribly that I just hold him which I obviously cannot do when I am leaving. I would love to find a solution for this otherwise happy go lucky luvbug!

  8. Albus is only going to be 2 but sometimes he hides under the bed if something frightens him. And when someone comes to the house he has a problem calming down.This may be what he needs.

  9. I would love to have this for my baby dog Copper, recently we’ve gone through a big transition in our life and had to move into my mother in laws house who isn’t well and while it’s taking a toll on me causing myself anxiety it’s making it even harder on my dog causing him severe anxiety and separation anxiety something he’s never had to deal with before. Although he still gets all the love and attention he needs I would love for him to have some gentle relief to help us both through this. It hurts me to see him showing signs of anxiety.

  10. My sweet golden retriever (mix) just can’t understand thunder, fireworks, and even the rain and wind. We moved to New Mexico (where the thunder is fierce) from California (where there is no thunder) and couldn’t believe his fears. We got him a thundershirt which helped but not enough. He still shakes and hides in the closet panting for hours. I think this new product might be just the thing to help calm him down. We’ve tried calming pills but he won’t take them if the bad weather is upon us and to tell you the truth I really don’t think they help him. He’s a senior dog and we would love to win this new product, he needs something to sooth him as he won’t let us hug or cuddle him.

  11. We always have anxious dogs in the rescue. Would come in handy for some fosters!

  12. I would love to win this for my Bailey because he has bad anxiety on a regular basis, but when it storms, or there’s loud noises, he gets anxious. I would love to see if this would help him!

    Yes, my husband and I would love this for our dog Bagel. When he was still a puppy, I opened our front door and fireworks just went off across the street., then that did it. He can’t tolerate any loud noise l, including thunder. He has even began to associate high winds to storms. We use the thunder shirt and play Reggae (Bob Marley) music, when we are home, when he goes into our master closet where we have set up a dog bed for him so he would be in a small dark spot to help him rest. Would like to try to add aromatherapy also. I’ve done some little reading on the subject. So please pick us so we can help calm our Belgian Shepherd Bagel so he can rest better through a storm. Thank you

  14. I would love to win this for my pup. Other big dogs make her nervous. She gets very anxious at the vet and I would love to see if this would help her.

  15. I would love this for my dog. My dog is always anxious at the groomer and park.

  16. Christina RadcliffMarch 5, 2017 at 12:09 pm

    I work at an animal shelter. I really would LOVE to try this on some of the babies there to see if it would help with stress.

  17. I would love this for my Daughters’ Dog Snoopy, he is in high anxiety. Their Cat Smokey, vanished and he is having a rough time missing his friend. 😹🐈❤ Thank you (anabananakitty)

  18. If there’s any dog who I think could benefit from thunderessence, it’s my JRT Benny. He’s got anxiety to the max. Every time anyone leaves or comes in our house he’s a crazy mess. Any type of loud noise such as fireworks or thunder, even a motorcycle, he’s losing his mind. I would love to help him out with thunderessence!

  20. My parents’ dog would benefit greatly from this. She gets separation anxiety pretty badly. She also doesn’t like anything out of the ordinary so many other things cause her anxiety. It would definitely be worth a try.

  21. My 8 year old Lab mix is terried of storms. He can usually sense them coming before they even show up on the radar. I would love to see if this helps with his anxiety and heavy breathing.

  22. Our 8 y/o Bull Mastiff has serious anxiety problems as does our 10 y/o Basset Hound. They could both use some help to calm down.

  23. Ever since we moved my lil Pepper has had anxiety. We lived at the beach the first 2 1/2 years of her life & now my husband has been transferred to Atlanta, GA. Needless to say, she isn’t adjusting well to the city life. Every car, motor cycle or loud noise she hears outside she growls or barks & then comes running over to us for comfort. She has also started this thing where she’s licking her front paws a lot. I researched online & they say they do that to try to sooth themselves as well. I wonder if this would be a good thing for her to try? The shirt doesn’t come small enough for her or I would have tried that awhile back. Please choose my lil cavapoo, Pepper, for this give away. She would love to be less stressed 🙂
    Thank you!

  24. I think my dog Summer would benefit from ThunderEssence – she doesn’t mind the Thunder – it’s the wind that kicks up that makes her anxious.

  25. My pug, Jazzy, gets very upset over hard rain, thunder or lightning. Anything helpful would be appreciated!
