The 4th of July is almost here!
While we’re sure our pets are just as patriotic as we are, they may not share our excitement for the local fireworks displays.
Pets can find fireworks terrifying. Fortunately we have a number of remedies that actually work well!
Starting out, it’s important to introduce our natural pet stress-relieving techniques a few days or even a week before they’re needed, to give your pet ample time to become comfortable with them. If your pet is afraid of the very thing meant to relax them, you won’t see good results. Plus, it seems like every neighborhood has that “one guy” who doesn’t wait until the actual 4th of July to celebrate with fireworks! So start your chosen treatment method before the fireworks actually begin. Once your dog or cat is stressed out, it can be difficult to calm them down. It’s important to remember that your pet is not only fearful for its’ own safety, but for yours as well! If you begin to worry about whether your pet will be stressed or anxious, it will only validate the fear and add to the anxiety. It’s important to be calm during such times, as this will help your pet to relax and reduce the fear.
Flower Essences are a very effective tool for combating stress and anxiety because they function on an emotional level.
They’re remarkably simple, combining the energetic essence and effects of flowers in unique formulas. We’ve found our pets are very “tuned in” to emotional energy, and they seem receptive to these formulas. While they’re effective, they’re also very mild on the body and completely safe. Flower Essences can be applied in a number of ways: dropped directly into your pet’s mouth, rubbed on their fur, added to their drinking water or even all of those methods at once!

Homeopathic Remedies can be effective, very mild and completely safe for your pets.
Homeopathic Remedies work by combining a number of ingredients in extremely small quantities that might seem like they would add to the stress; however these formulations in turn cause the body to react against the ingredients – which can produce a calming effect. The typical daily dosage can be increased during times of stress (like during fireworks, or that wild party you have planned!).
Our most popular stress remedy, Only Natural Pet Stress & Anxiety Homeopathic Remedy requires 5-10 drops 3 times per day to treat general anxiety. During times of stress that dose can be increased to 5-10 drops every 15 min for the first hour, every 30 min for the second hour and then once again for the third hour (If your Fireworks show lasts that long, we’d appreciate an invite!). Homeopathic Remedies should ideally be dropped directly into the mouth. However, if that is difficult they can be mixed with treats, food or water as well.
We offer several other homeopathic remedies for anxiety. One may be right for your pet!
Herbal Formulas are another great option, that tends to work over a longer period of time than homeopathic remedies or flower essences.
These formulas can keep your pet relaxed for an extended time with little to no interruption of the benefits! Since the effects last a bit longer, herbal remedies are one way to reduce any sudden “spikes” of stress and create a sustained, relaxed feeling. Herbal Remedies can be mixed with food, treats, water or given directly.

We have a few other solutions for relieving stress that don’t fit into one of the above categories as well. Our Only Natural Pet Phero-Soothe is a simulated Pheromone spray that creates a feeling of safety and well-being in any environment. Our pets have a powerful sense of smell, which helps make this product effective. The Thundershirt is a unique and creative product. It gently “hugs” your pet, which creates a sense of safety and security by making them feel less vulnerable. Both of these products can be combined with just about anything as well, so they’re a versatile choice that will complement any solution!
Treating anxiety, especially a rational anxiety like a fear of loud explosions, can take some trial and error. We’ve found that combining two or more products is generally the most effective. So explore your options, find the right solution for your pet, and get ready to enjoy those 4th of July fireworks without stress for you or your pet!
