Metro Pets

By Sharon Gomes Thomas

Some pet parents leave the radio on when they leave the house. Others turn on the TV, with some unusual channel choices – for example the Golf Channel for the hushed reassuring tones of the presenters. Definitely not Animal Planet, which may have distressed cats meowing, or aggressive dogs growling. We do this so our pets don’t feel separation anxiety.

Perhaps Pando Music ( for dogs and cats may be the better answer. This series of CDs uses instruments that produce sounds at certain frequencies that are apparently appealing to your pet, putting them at ease with a positive effect on their emotions.

Each of the melodies are versions of popular classical music from Beethhoven, Chopin and Mozart, produced using distinctive frequencies, many of them undetectable to the human ear, that are both pleasing and comforting to animals. The music also incorporates special sound effect that create the illusion for your pet that others are also at home, helping alleviate any sense of loneliness.

The Chopin For Dogs CD has Prelude in E Major, Opus 28, #4, with soft bird singing embedded in the melody. Beethoven For Cats boasts Pathetique, Sonata #8 in C Major, 2nd Movement, complete with cat purring. I don’t know if these animal sounds are soothing to the average pet. Check out twelve samples of Pando’s music to find out for yourself at the link -

And if your pooch or kitty responds well, you can pick up the CDs at
