Dogs are especially vulnerable to anxiety attacks after amputation surgery. It’s hard to watch your Tripawd go through this, but you can help your dog relax by giving gentle massage, applying a pain-relief pack, and playing some gentle, calming music made especially for dogs.
One of our recommendations for music is “Through a Dog’s Ear: Music to Calm Your Canine Companion.”
Dog’s hear sounds about twice as loudly as humans do. Dog-friendly is composed with low to moderate frequencies that are friendly to a dog’s ears, and songs smoothly transition without sudden changes in decibels.
At first we were a little skeptical about how music could help a dog calm down, especially our Wild Boy Wyatt. But when we tried it on him during a thunderstorm last week, the difference in his temperament was obvious. Within minutes he calmed down enough to hang out in his crate and ride out the storm. Plus, it helped keep us level headed as well.
Try dog-friendly music on your Tripawd, and let us know how it works. Here’s a small sampling of other music available on Amazon.
