    good lap, reassuring words, a treat or three, make it a game turn it into a fun night so in the future it does not bother them.

    @Chubby, and don't forget lots of hugs 'n kisses! that's likely a given already tho.

    Turning up the TV or radio is a good idea. I don't like the sound of those loud bangs myself. I think 4th of July rattles lots of nerves, pets and humans alike and as much as I do love this holiday, I'm not too crazy about the loud fireworks and idiots shooting off their guns in the air. Stay inside and be safe!

    Brutus has been pacing the house and my neighbors started with their display and frankie went nuts. He was barking and growling running to every window and panting heavily. I gave him and brutus half of a doggie xanax and both are now resting comfortably. I was hoping not to use it as brutus never had a reaction but this is frankies first 4th with us and he was a mess therefore making brutus nervous.

    I was wondering about this, too. There is a week long festival here ending with a very impressive fireworks display tomorrow night. The show is across the street from our house - we can see it from our backyard. It is SUPER loud in our house. I thought about having Archie out with us & just sitting on my lap. The other option is downstairs in our rec room inside his crate. I could play music on the iPod to help diffuse the fireworks, but it'll still be loud. What's the best option?

    I would love to know about the doggy Xanax too!

    It comes from the love in my dog’s eyes.

    Acepromazine is like a xanax for doggies. The vet gave it to when after brutus was in the hospital to calm him down. I never used it before last night. Brutus calmed right down and went to sleep. I had to put frankie in his crate, covered, with the tv set loud with music on. My poor guy.
