The Fourth of July is a time for celebration, but for many pets, it can be a source of anxiety and distress. The loud noises and bright flashes of fireworks can leave our furry friends feeling overwhelmed and frightened.
If you have been following us for a while, you may know of our beloved dogs, Shep and Lola. For our family, and so many other pet owners out there, it's important to find ways we can help them stay calm and comfortable during the 4th of July festivities.
Our Essential Blend CBD is perfect for pets and may help provide much-needed relief from anxiety.
WHY CBD FOR PETS?
Just like a comforting hug or a cozy blanket, CBD may help create a sense of calm and relaxation for our beloved companions. Derived from the hemp plant, CBD is a natural compound known for its potential calming effects. It can be a valuable tool in supporting our pets' well-being during stressful events like fireworks displays.
HOW CAN CBD HELP PETS?
CBD extracts have been known to help reduce anxiety in both humans and pets. They may help soothe the nervous system and promote a sense of calmness, making the loud noises and sudden bursts of light from fireworks less distressing for your furry companions. Think of it as a gentle hand guiding them through the storm, offering reassurance and tranquility.
Fireworks can trigger stress responses in pets, leading to restlessness, pacing, and even destructive behaviors. CBD extracts may aid in managing stress by promoting relaxation and helping pets cope with the overwhelming sensory experience. It's like having a trusted companion by their side, providing a soothing presence when they need it most.
Some pets may experience physical discomforts, such as muscle tension or digestive issues, due to anxiety during fireworks. CBD extracts have been studied for their potential anti-inflammatory properties, which may help alleviate these symptoms and promote overall comfort for your furry friends. Give it a try to help provide relief from both the mental and physical strains they may be feeling.
ESSENTIAL BLEND CBD EXTRACT FOR PETS
When using CBD extracts for your pets, it's essential to choose the right high-quality product! That’s why we recommend using our Essential Blend CBD Extract. It’s our most basic product that includes only 3 ingredients, which also makes it our most versatile!
Much like humans, when dosing pets it is ideal to do a ramp-up period and observe their response at the low dose first. Slowly increasing the dose to the maintenance or acute treatment dose reduces.
OTHER WAYS TO SUPPORT YOUR PETS
In addition to CBD extracts, there are other measures you can take to help your pets feel safe and secure during fireworks displays.
- Create a calm environment by keeping them indoors, closing windows, and playing soothing music or white noise to help mask the sounds of fireworks.
- Use pheromone sprays or wraps designed to reduce anxiety in pets.
- Provide them with plenty of love, attention, and reassurance throughout the festivities. (This is the most important of them all!)
This Fourth of July, let's make sure our furry friends feel protected and supported. CBD extracts can be a valuable tool in helping them navigate the anxiety-inducing fireworks experience with greater ease. With their anxiety alleviated, they can join in the celebration and enjoy the holiday alongside their human companions.
