Summer Stress For Pets & How CBD Can Help
Summertime is finally here and we couldn’t be more excited!!! Summer brings with it longer days, more time for outdoor fun, vacations, parties, and more and our pets make all of that even more enjoyable. However, summer also brings along certain stressors for our furry friends. Some of the big stressors include fireworks and thunderstorms which can oftentimes be terrifying. Additionally, our routines often change during the summer and this can cause some separation anxiety for your pets. We’re here to help you identify if your pet is experiencing stress or anxiety and how you can help them.
Noise aversion is one of the biggest issues most pets deal with, especially during the summer time. Summer brings big and scary thunderstorms and if your cat or pup are afraid of the booms and cracks in the sky you are not alone. Many pet owners experience the same thing with their pets. The next big noise aversion ‘event’ of the summer is Fourth Of July fireworks! These booms are often even more intense and far more frequent which can make even the most calm and even tempered pet hide, cry and shake in fear. It is important to give your pets the best chance of dealing with these events, such as a safe, quieter place that you can comfort and distract them with toys and treats.
CBD products can help calm your pets and give them an additional sense of calm. Products such as CBD Soft-chews or CBD Oil Tinctures are great ways to let your pets calm down and ease their anxiety and fears.
Another major challenge our pets face is a change of routine. New work schedules, being left at home during a vacation, traveling at different times of the day, experiencing completely new locations can all bring on anxiety for our pets. Separation anxiety is also a big issue many pets face as they are not getting to spend as much time cuddled up with you. Summer also brings a lot of new guests (human and animal) to your pets home which can be a big change for them. Our pets thrive with a solid routine since they are such creates of habit. When we disrupt their routine it can induce a lot of fear and anxiety for them.
Again, the above CBD products can help your furry friends be calmer as they adjust to the new routines or lack of routine they are faced with. Additionally, we recommend spending as much time with them as possible and make them feel comfortable, loved and important. Keep up their feeding, exercise, and play time as best as you can and they will not be so discombobulated.
