Fourth of July can be an exciting day for us humans, but sometimes it can be stressful on our pets.
With Fourth of July just around the corner, it’s important to not only prepare yourself but your pets too. With fireworks and company coming over to celebrate our Independence Day, the loud noises can definitely make your pets feel discomfort.
Here are four ways to make sure your pet is prepared for the upcoming holiday:
1. CBD Hemp Oil
As fireworks and loud noises fill the neighborhood on the Fourth of July, cannabidiol (CBD) hemp oil can be the perfect way to give your pets’ holiday anxiety a break. With their calming and relaxing properties, CBD products are a great option to have on hand when your pet starts showing signs of stress.
Pet Releaf has many options in its product line that can be tailored to your pet’s specific needs. We recommend trying out our CBD hemp oil a few days before the Fourth of July just to make sure it works for your pet. On July Fourth, try administering your pet’s recommended usage amount 30 minutes to 1 hour before the festivities begin.
Also, try using our Edibites for extra coverage for your pup throughout the night! There are no known overdoses on CBD, so you can always administer the oil and Edibites without worry. You could even use an Edibite as a reward if they’re doing really well, so not only do they receive some additional support, but they can also be reminded that they are doing a great job amongst the chaos.
Give your dog or cat a workout during the day of July Fourth. Exercise will hopefully tire them out enough so that they will just rest for the remainder of the night. For instance, try going on a long walk or playing fetch with your dog in the park. For cats, bring out a feather toy wand to keep not only their body active but their brain stimulated too!
3. Keep Them Busy
Provide your dog a long-lasting chew or food puzzle to keep them occupied while the fireworks are sounding off! It’s also ideal to create a safe space for them to hide out during the commotion. This could include their favorite pet bed or blanket tucked away in your bedroom away from the noises. With the addition of a treat or puzzle, this will hopefully keep them busy enough to ignore the ruckus.

4. Background Noise
To stifle the fireworks outside, try turning on a TV show or peaceful instrumental music in your pet’s favorite room. This will help block out some of the louder noises outside so your pet can relax.
