Every year I read up again on fireworks/thunderstorm phobias to see if I can find any new information. Just this morning I came across this post on Yankee Golden Retriever Rescue that is really thorough without glazing your eyes over. It’s not new (quotes some pretty old Whole Dog Journal issues), but it’s really well done. It talks about phobias, behavior modification, plant extract remedies (things like passion flower & valerian), the natural hormone supplement for insomnia (melatonin), flower essences (which treat on an emotional/energetic level), music therapy, hug therapy, and drugs. Thank you YGRR for making my job so easy today.
