Pet Parent Tips for a Pawsome Fourth of July!

Hello there, pet parents! As we gear up to celebrate the Fourth of July, we all get reminded that our furry friends do not share our enthusiasm for the loud and bright festivities. Fireworks, while a joy for us, can be quite scary for our pets. But don't worry, the CountryPet Naturals family is here to help! We've put together a list of 11 tips to help your pets have a happy, safe, and fun Fourth of July.

Understanding Pet Anxiety

Just like us, our pets can experience anxiety during stressful situations. The loud noises and bright lights of fireworks can trigger their fight-or-flight response, causing them to feel scared and anxious. But with a little preparation and understanding, we can help them navigate this stressful time.

11 Tips to Comfort Your Pets

1. Create a Safe Space: Make a cozy retreat spot for your pet with their favorite blanket and toys.

2. Use Distractions: Keep their mind off the noise with toys or a new chew toy. Give them your time and attention during loud festivities. 

3. Maintain a Calm Environment: Keep your home as normal as possible. This includes keeping the TV or music on to mask the noise of the fireworks.

4. Provide Comforting Treats: An extra portion of a CountryPet Naturals Pet Food Roll or an extra squirt of Cod Liver Oil can go a long way and provide a sense of familiarity and comfort.

5. Consult a Veterinarian: If your pet's anxiety is severe, it may be worth consulting with a veterinarian.

6. Exercise Your Pet: A good workout before the fireworks can help them feel more relaxed - and a tired pet is a calm pet. Try exhausting them - they might just sleep through the big bangs!

7. Avoid Fireworks: This may seem like common sense to some, but to others it's a watch & learn experience. Keep your pets away from the fireworks display. The loud noises and bright lights can be very frightening for them.

See this happy dog under the fireworks? Not a realistic expectation.

8. Update Identification: Juuuuust in case, Make sure your pet's tags and microchips are updated in case they get scared and run away. I've opened the door for an Amazon delivery and had my min pin run out the front door as if there were fireworks going off IN the house!

9. Stay Calm: Your pet can pick up on your emotions, so try to stay calm and reassuring.

10. Keep Them Indoors: It's best to keep pets indoors during the celebrations to prevent them from running away in fear.

11. Try Pheromones: Pheromone sprays, diffusers, and collars can help reduce stress and anxiety in pets. These products mimic the natural pheromones produced by mother dogs and cats to calm their young.

Give me comfort and I will give you love. 

What Will Work for Your Pets? 

Remember, every pet is unique and what works for one might not work for another. It's all about understanding your pet's needs and making them feel safe and secure.

From all of us at CountryPet Naturals, we wish you and your fur family a happy, safe, and fun Fourth of July!

Happy Independence Day from All of Us to All of You.
