ANNOUNCING A NEW MEDICATION FOR NOISE PHOBIA IN DOGS!!! We are very pleased to announce that we are now carrying Sileo, a new medication for use in dogs with noise or storm phobias. This medication provides antianxiety relief without the excessive sedation that comes along with so many other drugs. It is an oral gel that is quickly absorbed into the system & provides relief for 4 - 6 hours. Doses can be safely repeated if needed. For best results, it should be given 30 - 60 minutes before the storm / noise issue. However, your dog will still gain some benefit from immediate dosing after his anxiety has been triggered, unlike other anti-anxiety drugs. It is compatable with other medications, such as Prozac (fluoxatine), clomipramine, or amitriptyline. Sileo is indicated for dogs that have anxiety caused by noises, including fireworks, thunder, gunshots, passing cars or trucks, screaming children, barking dogs, or even normal household noises. If noises make your dog's separation anxiety worse, this may help. If your dog stresses going to the groomer because of the sounds of the clippers or dryer, Sileo may ease the stress. Sileo is available in a multi-dose syringe. The number of doses per tube will depend on your dog's weight. The cost is $30 for a 3 mls syringe. IF YOUR DOG IS CURRENTLY TAKING EITHER ACEPROMAZINE OR ALPRAZOLAM FOR NOISE / STORM PHOBIAS, CALL US, 333-1122, ABOUT SILEO!!!! Dr. Johnson, our resident behaviorist expert, will be more than happy to talk to you to determine if Sileo is a better alternative for your dog. If you have friends or family members who have dogs who suffer from noise anxiety, pass this along to them.

Puppies have certain critical stages of development that affect their behavior as adult dogs. One critical stage occurs between 5-9 weeks of age, when they are learning normal dog social development. The absolute BEST teacher during this time is MOM!!!!! It is crucial that puppies stay in the litter with their mother until they are at least 9 weeks old. During this time, puppies learn how to read & understand dog body language, they learn bite inhibition, they learn independence & gain confidence. Puppies that go into new homes as soon as they are weaned, often as young as 5 weeks, often develop behavior problems, such as excessive nipping / biting, separation anxiety, aggression or fear towards other dogs, inappropriate play & poor social skills around other dogs. There are a lot of factors that play a role in what kind of dog your puppy will grow into...genetics, early environmental enrichment, early puppy training, socialization, etc. But you can help your puppy get a better start simply by waiting a few weeks before bringing him home. A good breeder will insist on keeping the puppies with mom until they are at least 8-9 weeks of age, sometimes even as long as 12 weeks. Even if your breeder is willing to let a puppy go at 5-6 weeks of age, do yourself & your puppy a favor & ask your breeder to hang onto him a couple more weeks. And if you feel the urge to take the puppy home because he's covered in fleas, in a poor environment, etc...maybe you should be giving serious thoughts to whether or not you even want to buy a puppy from this person.

There's some new regulations involving prescriptions for controlled drugs. I just attended a two hour meeting in OKC to learn about the new Prescription Monitoring Program. There's going to be a learning curve that we will have to get past before this becomes routine. So....if your pet is on a controlled medication, please bear with us!!!! When we ask for a copy of your drivers license and date of birth, we are not trying to be difficult. We may need you to come by the office for a written prescription instead calling the pharmacy. We may need to limit the number of pills at one time, or the number of refills before we need to see the pet again. Please be understanding. We are just trying to comply with new state regulations. The drugs most commonly involved with these new regulations are Tramadol for pain, Alprazolam for anxiety, and Hydrocodone for coughing. There are others, but these are the most commonly prescribed controlled drugs at our practice that fall under these new regulations.

Tone of voice plus words really DO matter to your dog!!! But a lot of us, especially those using positive training methods, already knew this 🐶
Dogs understand both the meaning of words and the tone used to speak them, a new study finds.
