Sileo® (dexmedetomidine oromucosal gel) is the first FDA-approved treatment for dogs that suffer from a serious condition called noise aversion. It is prescribed by your veterinarian to help keep your dog calm when he or she hears scary noises.
You may not realize that your dog is overreacting out of fear to sounds. There are many common signs your dog could be displaying that can help identify which noises, known as “triggers,” are causing them fear and anxiety. These reactions are known as noise aversion, a serious medical condition that is treatable with help from your veterinarian.
If you notice your dog overreacting to everyday noises around your home, he or she isn’t alone. In fact, 2 out of 3 dogs show signs of fear to loud noises.1
Noise aversion is not “normal” for dogs.
Overreacting to noise is a sign that your dog is fearful and anxious, similar to how you might react if you saw a monster! That’s why we call the sounds that bring fear and anxiety to dogs “noise monsters.” What may seem like a normal noise to you can be terrifying for your dog—like they’re in a horror movie that they can’t escape.
