Oh damn. Sorry to hear about Lucy Jason.

I was at the vet yesterday when the storm started and my dog began to freak out. They were quick to recommend a new drug that is out that supposedly works better than acepromazine. It's not supposed to knock the dog out, just make him care free I guess. I gave him one last night, but it was after the storm started, so it didn't really do anything. The acepromizine never really worked for him either, he would definitely act loopy, but you could tell his mind was still freaking out. I don't remember the name, I'll get it tonight when I get home.

I had to have Dora (my boxer/pitbull) put down last fall while I was away to work. I had a friend do it for me since I was at work (remote Alaska) and wouldn't be able to get home for another four weeks or so. I passed on an R&R about two weeks before she passed on. I sure wish I had come home then and been able to put her down myself. She was also scared of thunderstorms in her early years. Later on though, she was OK with them as long as someone was home, otherwise she would hide in the shower. I sure miss my thunder buddy. A lot.

Yeah, that was our experience. If you gave it to them by the time the storm started, it was to late. If you gave it to them early, they were loopy and wobbly all day. Neither was really a good solution.

I do not think that is newsworthy.

My 60# dog is currently on my lap shaking and panting like crazy. So much for being a big, scary pitbull. She is such prissy wimp.

Sorry, I know it's hard to do.
