Dundee, IL, June 18, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- More dogs run away on July 4th than any other day of the Year. The July 4th holiday weekend can be a stressful time for dogs. Fireworks, holiday activities, travel, and even seasonal thunderstorms, create a fearful environment for four-legged family members. Many families have found that Canine Calm® aromatherapy remedy by Earth Heart® Inc. helps relax dogs during these unsettling times.
Whimpering, cowering, trembling, panting, pacing, drooling, barking, shaking and vomiting are typical 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 their side effects.
Earth Heart's Canine Calm aromatherapy products are made in the USA with 100% pure essential oils to relax dogs during fearful or non-routine activities, and are responsibly formulated for use as needed with dogs over 10 weeks old.
At the first sign of upset, spray the water-based mist onto your hands or use a wipe to gently massage your dog's ear flaps. Spray or wipe surrounding play areas and bedding for additional benefit. If you don't see desired results within 10 minutes, reapply as needed.
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 other summer activities.
· If your dog is afraid of fireworks 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.
Canine Calm spray and wipes are available at independent retailers, and online at Amazon.com, Chewy.com, and Katie's Pet Products.
