(NaturalNews) Most dogs and cats dislike unexpected, loud noises from thunder or fireworks. What may be a festive time for humans, turns into a night of horrors for many pets, making them run for cover or cower in fear at our ankles. Calm and protect pets from feeling vulnerable and anxious during fireworks and thunderstorms with natural remedies and solutions to help them during scary times.

Fear

Pets display a variety of behaviors when they're afraid. Learn to recognize the signs.

Barking, howling, whimpering
Showing aggression, biting, hissing or barring teeth
Hiding in closets or in small spaces
Shaking or loosing control of their bladder
Running out of the house, yard or other familiar place

Coping Techniques

Create routines and safe places to help pets cope with loud noises.

Give pets a safe, familiar place to go during a thunderstorm or fireworks. Create a safe room with windows covered and lights on. A closet or large crate will help animals feel more secure. Place a blanket in with the pet or cover the crate to buffer noise level.

Provide pets with human or other animal companionship to reduce the feeling of aloneness.

Leave pets home during fireworks celebrations. The bright, flashing lights and loud booming noises may startle and terrify a dog, who may get free from his collar and run away.

Turn on a TV or radio with static white noise to drown out thunderclaps and fireworks. Alternatively, turn on music or TV with talking to help distract your pet.

Homeopathy

Several homeopathic remedies are especially known for their ability to relieve the fear of loud, unexpected noises. Place one pellet of the remedy in a 1-oz. glass dropper bottle. Fill half way with distilled water. Add 1/4 -1/2 oz. vodka and label. Administer to pets by allowing them to briefly sniff the top of the open bottle. This dosing method helps avoid aggravations, or side effects.

Phosphorus
Phosphorus is probably the best known remedy to help with fear of loud noises, especially during a thunderstorm. The animal may be very skittish, run for cover into a small, dark place, become afraid of being alone and want constant companionship from his person. The animal may become anxious even before a thunderstorm, sensing its imminent arrival. Pets needing Phosphorus are also afraid of the flashes from lightening.

Borax
The pet needing Borax is very easily startled by noises, even slight noises, like the sound of rain splattering on the roof or the whoosh of the wind. The animal may become extremely anxious, howl, run around, cower, and dig on the floor, all in an effort to get away from the noise. He may have a terrified expression and want to be held, crying or clinging from the downward motion of being put down on the floor.

Rhododendron
Another remedy's action works well for pets who are terrified of loud noises, especially thunder-boomers. Like Phosphorus, the pet needing Rhododendron may sense the coming of the storm. The animals needing Rhododendron may be predisposed to joint pains in the legs and may become lame or arthritic as a storm approaches. In these cases, the remedy may be curative for those problems.

Kali-carbonicum
Older pets, who are fearful of loud noises, may need a dose of Kali-carb. This remedy works especially well for pets who become suddenly startled very easily by unexpected noises. Some pets may have edema and swellings around the eyes and upper eye lids, which is a guiding symptom for this remedy.
