Canine Calm Helps During Summer Celebrations

Jul 01, 2014 03:05AM

The 4th of July weekend can be a stressful time for dogs. Loud noises such as fireworks, holiday activities, travel, and even seasonal thunderstorms, create an unsettling environment for four-legged family members.

     Dogs can experience whimpering, cowering, trembling, panting, pacing, drooling, barking, shaking, vomiting and other signs of upset during loud noises like fireworks. While there has been a growing trend among veterinarians to prescribe anti-anxiety medications for nervous dogs, many dog owners are concerned about potentially negative side effects. Although these medications are necessary at times, there are alternatives to help your dog stay safe and comfortable during July 4th and other summer activities.

     Earth Heart’s Canine Calm is formulated with pure essential oils that have been traditionally used in natural remedies for relaxation. At the first sign of upset, spray one or two mists on your fingertips and gently massage the dog’s outer ears. You can also lightly mist the dog’s favorite blanket, bandana or bedding used inside the home or travel crate as needed.      

     Canine Calm mist is made in the USA and packaged in a BPA free recyclable spray bottle. The spray is easy to use, won’t stain or leave a sticky residue on fabric or fur, and can safely be applied as often as needed. The family-friendly product is safely diluted for use with puppies as young as eight weeks old, and has been recommended by dog lovers and professionals as a safe and effective natural remedy that helps soothe over 90% of dogs that startle from loud noises such as fireworks and thunderstorms.
