We’re now officially in the thick of fireworks and thunderstorm season. For many dogs, that translates into a summer of terror.

We do know they are one of the more common problems seen in older dogs. Our Irish setter Coral was never bothered by storms until 2 years ago, when she turned 7 years old.
