Doing all of these things over the last few years have helped Zane immensely, however the introduction of reiki and the Stardust Calming Balm have been game changing for us and for Zane.
I use the balm on Zane regularly as he is a nervous traveller in the car, so I pop it on the pads of his paws and chest daily.
This means that come bonfire night his body has built up a defence and resilience to allow him to cope with the sound of fireworks more effectively.
We still do all the other things but it means that if we are caught off guard or like this year the fireworks start very early Zane is much less stressed and his mind and body are much more prepared and able to cope.
Since using the calming balm Zane has been like a different dog, sometimes it’s as though he doesn’t even notice the fireworks whereas before he would have been very stressed, panting, pacing, digging, barking and shaking. Sometimes he got in such a state it would trigger an epileptic fit.
Thankfully now Zane is much more relaxed and able to cope with bonfire night.
