Has anyone any experience using valium to treat anxiety/fear in dogs? Our area is due for the 17 year cicadas in May. This is supposed to be an unusually heavy infestation, lasting approx. 6 weeks. My problem: Spencer is DEATHLY afraid of flying/buzzing insects. If even one fly gets in the house, he flips out -- runs, hides, shakes, drools. He has even gotten physically sick in the past -- vomiting & diarrhea. I spoke with the vet today about it. He said there are various medications to try, but he felt Valium would have the best results with the least risk. We are still about 1 1/2 months from the cicada emergence, but I am gathering info, in order to make the best decision for Spencer. Thanks for any input.
