Storms Causing Pet Anxiety in Murrieta Hot Springs?

A dog and a cat huddle underneath a blanket during a thunderstorm. We restore storm damage 24-hours a day in Riverside County.

The last thunderstorm brought heavy rain and wind to Murrieta Hot Springs. The thunder and lightning were frightening to many of our furry friends. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) offers some great tips for managing your pet’s anxiety during a thunderstorm:

How to Help a Scared Pet

The good news is there are lots of things you can do at home to help your pet. Please remember that one thing does not work for all pets—so keep trying and see what works for them.  

  • Keep calm! Your dog is aware of your emotions; they are more likely to get upset if you are.
  • Let them hide. If they prefer to stay under the bed, in a closet or bathroom, let them stay there. 
  • If your pet does not have a place to hide, consider creating a safe place for them. Interior rooms where there is less noise or flashes of light are a good place to start.
  • Try distracting your pet by playing games. You can turn on the TV, play soft music, or give them a food puzzle or kong filled with their favorite item are all great ways to distract your pet. 
  • Anxiety vests or shirts may also help your pet feel calmer
