Earth Heart Offers Tips to Help Dogs Avoid Freaking Out During Fireworks and Thunderstorm Season
Dundee, IL, June 17, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- The July 4th holiday weekend can be a stressful time for thousands of dogs. Loud noises such as fireworks, holiday activities, travel, and even seasonal thunderstorms, create an unsettling environment for four-legged family members. Many families have found that Canine Calm natural aromatherapy mist by Earth Heart Inc. helps relax dogs during unsettling times.
Lisa Putnam Smith, host of Your Pets My Dogs shared, “One of my 3 labs is excitable with loud noises, and he shakes. When I used Canine Calm on July 4th, a calm came over him and he stopped shaking! Canine Calm worked like a charm, allowing him (and us) to sleep through the night, except for the big booms which also made us jump.”
Dogs across the country 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.
Traci Noonan Reuter of Elgin, Illinois shared, “We ran out of tranquilizers for our dogs one July 4th, and they were flipping out during the fireworks. Fortunately I had a bottle of Canine Calm, and it was amazing how well it calmed the dogs. No more tranquilizers for my dogs!”
In addition to natural remedies such as Canine Calm, there are other ways to help your dog stay safe and comfortable during July 4th and many other summer activities.
· If your dog is afraid of fireworks, thunderstorms and other loud noises, try to avoid attending events with fireworks whenever possible.
· Stay calm yourself, and reward your dog’s calm behavior with treats and kind words.
· You can also keep your dog in a safe secure place during fireworks, perhaps a crate.
· Because many dogs run off when startled by loud noises, be sure your dog is on a leash with an identification tag at all times when outdoors.
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 1 or 2 mists on your fingertips and gently massage the dog’s outer ears. If you don't see desired results within 10 minutes, you can repeat applying to the outer ears as often as needed. 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 onto the dog’s outer ears or directly onto bedding or clothing and inside the car or travel crate. 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.
