I have a 97 pound German Shepherd who is terrified by thunder and lightening. I understand that...

... some of your flowers might help calm him when these storms come up. What do you suggest? M on Persimmon Terrace

Dear M, Dogs suffer terribly from noise, particularly from thunderstorms and fireworks.

Dogs' hearing is sensitive, and the level of such noises is unbearable to them.

I recommend a combination of:

1. Mimulus, which is good for this type of fear

2. Cherry Plum for panic

3. Agrimony to ease the pain caused by the noise

Wishing you peace and quiet, Ruth
