Maggie is afraid. She was outside this evening when some fireworks went off, then about the time she came in, our smoke detector beeped three or four times (we were frying shrimp). She started to shake so hard she couldn't stand. She was panting and her heart was racing. I put her on the couch with me and when she was still shaking and panting after an hour, I called my vet. He called back and had me check the color of her gums and asked some questions. He thinks she is just afraid of the noises. What can I do for her when she is this panicked? Now I think I better stay up until the real fireworks at midnight.
