Natural Stress Relief Formulas for Pets

I always worry when it's time for 4th of July fireworks.  My lab, in particular, gets so frightened that she hides in her in the bedroom and just lays there, panting and quivering.  She gets so freaked out that she'll even ignore treats! Fortunately, I'm now living in a location where it's not as bad as it used to be, but ...

Every year I get an email from my local shelter within a day or so of the 4th of July asking for folks to foster cats and dogs because they've had a sudden  influx of lost pets landing at their doors.  Inevitably, this is due to animals that got so scared with all of the booming and banging from fireworks that they ran off.  (I know one owner whose golden retriever actually ran through a  door - shattered the frame and was lost for almost 2 weeks.)

I know several people who get pet tranquilizers every year just to keep their pets more calm. 

Recent research shows that upwards of 10.7 million pets in the United States suffer from separation anxiety, resulting in inappropriate, unwanted behaviors. While the trend toward the use of pharmaceutical drugs to deal with animals' separation anxiety and other complex stress-related emotions is on the rise, many pet owners are turning to all-natural alternative solutions.


Rescue Remedy for Pets

Rescue Remedy for PetsRescue Remedy for people has been around for 70 years or more and is a homeopathic drop that can be used to reduce symptoms of stress.  They now have a formulation for pets of any kind.  It's safe, all natural, and very easy to administer.  Rescue Remedy Pet is in an alcohol free formula and is ideal for sensitive pets.

It's suitable for use with pets of all shapes and sizes, including: Reptiles, Fish (just add to tank water), Birds, Cats, Dogs, Horses, and Rabbits.

Simply place 4 drops of Rescue Remedy Pet directly into the mouth. Alternatively, add 4 drops to food, water bowl or on a treat. Can also be rubbed directly on the animal's nose, ear or paw. Choose the method easiest for you that will ensure your pet receives the correct dosage.

Interesting review. You mention the stress on pets around the 4th of July. Just wrote a review yesterday suggesting that all consumer fireworks should be banned. I know my cat is scared to death by all the commotion.

I get that! And I think it's a great idea although it probably doesn't have a great chance of actually being passed in many parts of the country. I wish I could remember the number I heard from my local shelter last year about how many lost pets they wound up with. And that, of course, doesn't even begin to count the number of lost pets that are never found.

With July 4th fireworks coming soon, it's important to start thinking about how to keep your dog (or any other pet, for that matter) as calm as possible. Every year shelters get overwhelmed with huge numbers of pets (both cats and dogs) who run away because they're so frightened by 4th of July fireworks noises.
