With crowds of unfamiliar people and loud, scary noises, the Fourth of July can make even the most laid-back, four-legged family members apprehensive and unpredictable. Research shows that more pets are lost on the Fourth of July than any other day of the year.
Here are some helpful tips and precautions you can take to make finding your pet easier in case they do go missing.
Research shows that dogs are 2.5 times more likely and cats are 21 times more likely to be returned to their home from a shelter if they have a registered microchip. Make sure your pet’s microchip is registered with up-to-date contact information. Visit found.org to fill out a free microchip registration form.
CBD Hemp Oil
It has calming and relaxing properties which make it great to have on-hand when your pets start showing signs of stress. Pet Releaf has developed its own proprietary strain of hemp specifically for pets, which is sustainably grown in Colorado.
Be sure to give your pets lots of exercise during the day so they are worn out before the scary noises at night start.
Head indoors with your pet before the fun begins. Don’t wait for the fireworks to be in full swing before starting to soothe them.
Wrap Pets Up
Confining movement in dogs and cats actually has a calming effect on them. You might also want to consider an anti-anxiety wrap or coat.
