I have a 9 1/2 year old greyhound weighing 85 lbs. Starting

I have a 9 1/2 year old greyhound weighing 85 lbs. Starting last year has become extremely terrified of fireworks, this year being the worse. My vet wouldn't give me Xanax and told me to use Benadryl. After 9 pills (25 mg each), in 10 hours, no help and I thought he was going to have a heart attack! Now overtime 1 or 2 goes off, he goes into complete panic mode panting, shaking, no food or water.Why would they say no Xanax for greyhounds? My 2nd greyhound was on it due to separation anxiety, and was weaned off of it in 6 months.Please help!Linda

Our dog has been on trazodone and we only give m when we all

HiOur dog has been on trazodone and we only give him when we all leave the house for church on sunday during the day. Lately with the storms and thunders Vet suggested to give him one pill in the evening - we tried and he got worse - starts scratching door to get out in the middle of the night for no reason. Should trazodone be given right before sleep or 4-5 before going to bed like we have been doing. Thanks.
