Is your pet afraid of loud noises such as thunder, fireworks, and firecrackers. So many of mine have been that we just had to figure out something we could do to help them. I have found that using a product called Rescue Remedy along with lavender oils really helps. I've only purchased Rescue Remedy online and haven't not seen it available in any store. PetSmart sells products called Pet-Ease and Calm-Quill. I can't vouch for them but if you need something to get through this noisy weekend I'd certainly try it.
I've also heard good things about the Thunder Shirt. I've never used one but think about it. If you have a dog that's small enough to pick uo and hold on to isn't that what you do when they are frightened. The theory behind the thunder shirt is to compress the body - much like a hug - so they feel more secure.
Don't let your dog suffer through the next few days. Try one of these products to see if it helps.
BTW - I have no vested interest in any of these products. I'm just letting you know that they work so you can help your pet. Check out this video of my Boston Terrier that is petrified of loud noises - especially thunder.
Whenever I know that there is an impending thunderstorm or expect fireworks to start going off I take action. Shortly before, if at all possible, I give him a couple of drops of the Rescue Remedy. Then I rub lavender oils on my own hands. I sit and hold him for a few minutes in a way that lets him smell my hands. He is then able to rest comfortably through the scary period of thunder or fireworks. It doesn't knock him out or put him to sleep. It just enables him to sit calmly instead of shaking from head to toe throughout the duration of the noise.
Please try it if you have a fearful pet!
