It’s no secret that 4th of July can make our 4-legged friends a bit uneasy. Between loud noises and fireworks lighting up the night sky, food scraps, and unfamiliar faces, our pets can face a number of stressful and uncomfortable situations while we’re having a blast.
Here are our top pet safety tips for July 4th so you can keep your furry friends calm during America’s favorite summer holiday:
Even if you do all of the above, your pet still may experience some circumstantial stress given all the July 4th hoopla. CBD oil can be your solution to keeping your pet calm, and supporting any tummy troubles they may have from ingesting food scraps.
CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system which helps to regulate things like mood, sleep, appetite, stress, and discomfort. When used, CBD can help provide a sense of overall balance in the body. It can be especially helpful in mitigating the fight or flight response we, and our pets, can experience when met with stressful situations.
CBD oil can come in various forms, but we recommend using a tincture since you’re able to accurately dose the amount your pet needs based on their weight. It can be easily administered orally with a pet-safe syringe like the one included with our Signature Tincture. While CBD metabolizes differently in every body, giving your pet CBD about an hour before the festivities start will help them feel a sense of calm. It should last for several hours, though depending on your pet, they may require a second dose a few hours later if you start to see them look nervous or agitated.
There you have it — our top pet safety tips for July 4th! Have a great holiday and remember to keep your pets calm, safe, and happy (though you can throw on a cute outfit if they’re up for it!).
