Personally, I love to sleep when there's rain on my roof. But hail on my roof is NOT a soothing sound!

Looks like, as usual, that Oklahoma is going to take the brunt of the storm.

Benadryl is the answer for that. 10 mg/10 lbs. But I start low with 25 mg for 78 & 90 lb dogs. Will give it to them late tonight and anither 25 mg if they wake me. Way cheaper and more effective than the vet's Alprazolam.

It is an answer for many. Not for my dog. It's not effective on some dogs, and mine is one of them. We still give it too her, but it just makes her loopy and she has fallen off of our bed on it (and onto the hard floor!). The vet told us we could go up to a tablet, but we have yet to give that a try. Xanax works wonders on her though.

Dallas and TX in general has been quite the adjustment for our poor girl!

I wish I was able to sleep. Gotta work work work. But if the weather came during the weekend, it would be wonderful sleeping weather.

Thank you... I have!! And as you can imagine--it didn't work. She just pants even more with it on. It's pretty bad. I feel bad for her but we've probably tried just about everything. Xanax is the only thing that works, and I always feel weird at the vet asking for xanax for her, but I will probably bite the bullet. Thank you so much though for your advice!

Wow! That is one anxious dog!!
My cats will sometimes freak out and run around our bed, but usually they just sleep through it all. Supposedly they make Thundershirts for cats, too, but I would be afraid that my cats would kill me if I tried to put it on them!
