New treatment for dogs with noise aversion

A New Jersey company has come to market with a FDA-approved treatment indicated for the treatment of canine noise aversion.

Sileo is said to be the first of its kind, helping dogs cope with stress from thunderstorms or construction without altering their personality.

Around 70 million dogs across the United States suffer from noise-related anxiety, according to the company.  That is at least one-in-three dogs.

Some of the common behaviors associated with it include trembing and shaking or pulling their ears back.  Others include becoming clingy to the owner for hiding.  Many also start panting or pacing and some whine and whimper.

The medicine requires the owner to use an oral syringe to deliver doses as-needed between the cheek and gum.
