Yesterday was independence day, the day of fireworks, outdoors, picnics and alcohol to celebrate Americas birthday! Unfortunately the animals do not enjoy the day as much as the humans.
There are more dogs lost on the 4th of July than any OTHER DAY of the year!
In years past we have used Rescue Remedy a natural calming solution that we put in our dogs water. Follow the link to see it on amazon. It is pretty effective but also expensive. This year we used the calm pets blend.
I diffused it in the house but it was a little too effective and everyone at home was REAL calm and tired including myself. I turned of the diffusers while we were home and resumed them when we left.
While we were home I ended up mixing water and 2-3 drops of Cedarwood, Vetiver and Lavender mixed with water in a small spray bottle and sprayed their dog beds and their fur. They were calm and relaxed for the rest of the day.
Hopefully the fireworks are over, but go ahead and mix up this blend for your fur babies that have separation anxiety or are just a little neurotic all year long!
