If you’ve got a dog or a cat, it’s time to start thinking about July 4, because many, many dogs have terrible anxiety and fear over the sound of fireworks.
Riley has some recommendations:
- He stays home. It’s irresponsible to take a dog out when there’s so much scary noise.
- Riley is safe inside with the television or music on. It’s wise to try to distract pets with other, normal sounds that partly camouflage the explosion of fireworks.
- He enjoys Treatibles, cannabis treats without the psychoactive ingredient. In fact, many dog people use these to help their dogs control anxiety. There’s still time to order some. For more information, I blogged about them HERE.
- Rescue Remedy is a calming, herbal liquid that can be relaxing. The same with DAP diffusers that plug into an outlet. Most pet stores carry these and they are available on line.
If you’d like to make sure your pet has a safe and happy Independence Day, I have many more ideas at this older post, below (but the contest is long over). Take a look!
