Keeping Pets Safe and Calm on July 4th

by | Jun 14, 2019 | Anxiety, Blog, Cats, Dogs, Pet Health Tips, Stress

July 4th, along with the nights leading up to it, can be stressful for pets. Fireworks, parties and other Independence Day traditions can be a whole lot of fun for people; however, these crowded and loud festivities can be quite frightening and trigger anxiety even in cats and dogs that are normally chill.

There are noticeable signs to look for when a pet is suffering from anxiety: panting, whining, trembling and hiding. Other signs may be less obvious and can be confused with other types of behavioral problems, such as excessive barking, repeated destructive behavior and showing aggression.

It is no surprise that more American pets run away on the 4th of July than any other day of the year. July 5th is the busiest day of the year for many animal shelters as pets spooked by fireworks flee and end up in shelters.

This is why it is so crucial pet parents take precautions to protect their fur babies during this holiday. Here are some tips on how to keep them as stress-free as possible.

Offer Treatibles Organic Broad Spectrum Hemp Oil With Naturally Occurring CBD Products Throughout the Day

July 4th offers the opportunity to get ahead of the onset of anxiety/fear/stress. We suggest offering Treatibles chews, oils, Ready Packs or capsules to your pet several times during the day, beginning late morning or early afternoon. Repeat administration four hours later and once again, an hour before fireworks are set to go off.

Treatibles products help instill calm, balance and ease, support a healthy digestive tract and strong immune system, promote healthy joints, flexibility and the body’s normal inflammatory response. Treatibles can help animals exhibiting anxiety, discomfort, loss of appetite, digestive tract issues, and more.

Leave Your Pets At Home

As tempting as it may be to bring your dog to a party or your town’s fireworks event, please don’t. Try to see it from their point of view – between having super sensitive hearing, being away from familiar surroundings and surrounded by chaos – well, it can be terrifying. It will be much more comforting to them to be in their own temperature-controlled home, away from loud noises and excitement.

Provide A Safe Space Indoors

Whether you are celebrating with friends and family at home or elsewhere, providing a quiet room with a door that can be closed can help your pet feel safe. Keep in mind that your neighbors may be having a party or that random fireworks may be set off throughout the night. Both cats and dogs need to feel secure. The room should include a favorite bed, toys, fresh water and food. For cats, provide a place to hide – a kitty tunnel or a box (and of course, a litter box). If your dog views a crate as a safe space, put it in the room. Turn on a television or play calming music – something that can act as white noise should things outside get a bit rowdy.
