CD therapy for dogs [08/10/2008]
One animal welfare charity is urging dog owners to start preparing their pets to minimise the misery suffered on bonfire night.

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) is appealing to people to use sound therapy in to order prepare animals for the night.

It has endorsed a CD to help dogs learn to be less afraid of loud fizzes and bangs in the build up to the traditional Guy Fawkes celebrations.

Produced by Sounds Therapy 4 Pets, Sounds Scary! is a two-CD pack which features a wide variety of firework sounds as well as thunder and gunshots.

The RSPCA claim the number of firework-related calls received by its centres doubled over the course of the past eight years from 456 in 1999 to 940 last year.

It cites research that estimates that almost half (45 per cent) of dogs in the UK show fearful behaviour when they hear fireworks.

Mark Evans, the RSPCA's chief vet, said: "Fireworks and other loud noises are a source of great anxiety for many dogs. This year, the RSPCA's Fireworks campaign is encouraging people to help treat and prevent their dogs' fireworks."

The RSPCA was founded in 1824.
