If you live in our neck of the woods, then you know we had a whopper of a Summer Solstice storm!
Thunder, lightning and wind can cause our animals (and us) quite a bit of fear and anxiety.
The 4th of July is right around the corner, too, and fireworks will soon be lighting up the sky and causing our animals to run for cover.
When we know a storm is on the way, rest assured you can just open up your cupboard and grab any one of these fantastic products to help our furry friends cope. These safe, gentle and all-natural products really work to take the edge off and can be found on our website as well as in the store!
Homeopet offers 3 great options: TFLN (Thunderstorms, Fireworks & Loud Noises), Storm Stress and Anxiety Relief. They offer some great suggestions on their website to try in conjunction with an all natural remedy when dealing with storms:
“Basic precautions such as closing windows and curtains, putting on some background music, or similar cover noise, to further muffle the trigger noise, having company with the pet where someone will sit and calmly talk to the pet and stroke it if this is appropriate to the pet, will all enhance the efficacy of the medicine. Desensitization with CDs designed to combat phobias can be useful as can be behavioral therapy. The use of diffusers can be done alongside this medicine.”
A diffuser such as the Comfort Zone DAP (Dog Appeasing Pheromone) and Feliway for cats or even one that diffuses calming essential oils into the air such as lavender are good options.
End of the Leash also carries the Calming Collars for dogs and cats that contain the calming pheromones along with lavender and chamomile.
