We have the potential for severe thunderstorms over the weekend. As much as we need the rain, I hate the effect thunderstorms have on poor Zack. He displays the usual anxious behavior of pacing, panting, trembling, and seeking a hiding spot.
An article in The Whole Dog Journal reports that one of the most effective treatments for thunderstorm phobia is melatonin, an over-the-counter hormone used by humans to treat insomnia.
Have any of you used melatonin for this purpose and if so, would you please share your results?
