Deb Cook might be worth a try

Funny you use a frenchie in the illustration My frenchie doesn’t flinch during storms.... especially the one the other night where there was one that sounded like a bomb!

I just tried this and am totally astounded with the result!!! My dog has been underfoot and stressed for the last hour so I gave this a try. He immediately started wagging his tail and pranced about happily before leaving to go and sleep quietly on his bed rather than shaking against my legs. The result was instant and he is currently ignoring the thunder!!!

Ian Sprawson maybe for Poppy's anxiety times ?😳

THE ALPINE ANIMAL DOCTORS' PROMISE

Our full service Veterinary Hospital provides quality care for all animals.

Since 2009, when Dr. Rebekah Day, BVSc (Dr. Bek) first opened a small clinic in Porepunkah, Alpine Animal Doctors has grown to become the ‘most trusted’ veterinary practice in the region. Our clients and patients come from across the Alpine region — from Myrtleford, Yackandandah and Beechworth to Bright, Harrietville and Mt Beauty.

With an A-Z of almost 350 veterinary services available — from Adipose Stem Cell therapy to Vaccinations — our team is equipped to provide the optimum level of care for all conditions, and for all animal species, great or small, including farm livestock.

Our hospital is fully equipped with the most up to date and technologically advanced equipment available, with state-of-the-art facilities the equal of any capital city-based specialist veterinary facility. We are constantly re-evaluating and upgrading our equipment and facilities to ensure that our patients receive only the very best treatment outcomes — the same level of care that we would want for our own animal family.

Dr. Bek’s nursing team — Mary, Tegan and Lizzie — are all locals, all professionally qualified, and dedicated to ensuring your animals are treated with compassion and kindness. Our practice is ably managed by Mark, Dr. Bek’s partner.

Most importantly, everyone at Alpine Animal Doctors loves animals just as much as you do. It’s why we do what we do. Our high tech equipment and advanced facilities are important, but, more than anything else, what makes us different is our people and our dedication.

Our promise is that we will never stop striving to achieve excellence in the delivery of animal healthcare. And we will never stop caring.
