The torrent of recent rain in Wichita and the surrounding areas are wreaking havoc on river beds and basement sump pumps, but they have also been responsible for storm anxiety in many pets.
There are a variety of reasons pets might have storm anxiety including: pets can sense a change in the barometric pressure, loud thunder can be frightening and a build-up of static electricity in their fur can cause small shocks that range from uncomfortable to downright terrifying for an animal. Sometimes, a human that is scared of storms can pass that anxiety along to animals.
