July 4th Pet Safety Tips


THROUGH THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND. CINDY AND ANDRIA WHAT’S HAPPENING OVER THERE? LOTS OF FUN STUFF OVER HERE. AMERICANS ARE GOING TO COME TOGETHER THIS WEEK TO CELEBRATE THE 4TH OF JULY WITH LOTS OF FOOD, FUN, AND FIREWORKS AND WHILE IT’S FUN FOR US, NOT ALWAYS THE CASE FOR PETS. IF YOU’RE TRAVELING WITH YOUR 4-LEGGED FRIEND THIS HOLIDAY THERE ARE LOTS OF WAYS TO KEEP THEM SAFE. AND YOU BROUGHT A LITTLE FRIEND WITH YOU. I DID THIS IS EDGAR THE WEANER AND HE IS READY TO GO WITH HIS 4TH OF JULY T-SHIRT AND COLLAR ON. EDGAR ACTUALLY SUFFERS FROM ANXIETY MOST OF THE TIME. THIS WEEK AS WE’RE GETS INTO 4TH OF JULY A LOT OF DOGS ARE GOING TO BE EXPERIENCING SOME ANXIETY. YEAH, EXPLAIN WHY 4TH OF JULY IS SUCH A RISKY DAY FOR PETS. JULY 4TH IS THE BUSIEST DAY OF THE YEAR WHERE DOGS AND CATS END UP IN THE SHELTERS. YOU KNOW, THEY DON’T LIKE FIREWORKS. IT’S SCARY, IT’S LOUD. IF YOU SEE THAT YOUR PET IS PACING OR PANTING THOSE ARE SOME SIGNS THAT THEY’RE GOING TO BE A LITTLE BIT AFRAID OF WHAT’S HAPPENING. SO YOU DEFINITELY WANT TO SET THEM UP FOR SUCCESS. DON’T BRING THEM TO THE PARADES, TO THE PICNICS, TO THE FIREWORKS AND IF YOU’RE LEAVING THEM AT HOME BY THEMSELVES YOU WANT TO MAKE SURE THEY HAVE NO ESCAPE ROUTE. THEY CAN JUMP OUT A WINDOW. THEY CAN SCRATCH OPEN A DOOR. SO MAKE SURE THEY’RE IN A REALLY CONTAINED ENVIRONMENT. YOU CAN PUT THEM IN THEIR OWN LITTLE ZEN ROOM. I LIKE TO SET THEM UP WITH THEIR LITTLE BED MAYBE IN A BEDROOM. NICE AND CALM. PUT THE AC ON FOR THEM SO THAT WHEN THOSE SCARY FIREWORKS COME ON YOU KNOW, THEY’RE IN THE BEST CONDITION THEY CAN BE. I HAVE A LOT OF FRIENDS WHO DO HAVE DOGS THAT ALREADY BECAUSE THE FIREWORKS HAVE ALREADY STARTED IN MANY AREAS. YEAH. AND THEY JUST ARE, THE DOGS KIND OF PUSH THEMSELVES IN BETWEEN THE REFRIGERATOR AND THE OTHER SIDE SO I’M JUST WONDERING SOME PEOPLE PUT OILS ON THEIR DOGS LIKE LAVDER OILS. ABSOLUTELY. I MEAN, EVEN A T-SHIRT, A SNUG T-SHIRT CAN HELP. IT HELPS THEM FEEL LIKE THEY’RE HAVING A HUG. EVEN THE WAY I’M HOLDING RIGHT NOW. IT HELPS THEM FEEL A LITTLE MORE SECURE. LAVENDER. I WOULDN’T DO ANYTHING NEW ON THE 4TH OF JULY IF YOU HAVEN’T TRIED IT BEFORE. IF YOU KNOW LAVENDER OILS WORK. CBD CAN ALSO BE A REALLY EFFECTIVE OPTION THAT’S NATURAL TO HELP THEM NATURALLY CALM THEM DOWN AND SOOTH THEM. IN THE PAST WE’VE ALWAYS SAID TO HAVE TV AND MUSIC ON. DEPENDING ON THE TYPE OF FREQUENCY THAT THOSE CHANNELS ARE MAKING IT CAN ACTUALLY CAUSE MORE ANXIETY FOR YOUR PET. FOR EXAMPLE SOME CLASSICAL MUSIC HAS BIG RANGES OF TONALITY. SO YOU DON’T WANT TO PUT A LOT OF EXTRA NOISE IN THEIR LIFE. SOMETHING THAT KIND OF DROWNS IT OUT LIKE AN AC OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT IS BETTER. AND JUST HAVING A COLLAR WITH UP TO DATE INFORMATION. THERE’S SO MANY SMART COLLARS OUT THERE. ALSO MAKE SURE THEY’RE MICROCHIPPED AND GET THEM — GET OUT AND GET A LOT OF EXERCISE THAT MORNING. IF YOU KNOW YOU’RE GOING TO BE GONE FOR THE DAY. GET OUT. GO FOR A WALK EARLY IN THE MORNING BEFORE IT GETS TOO HOT AND THAT WILL HELP THEM STAY CALM AS WELL. IT’S JUST LIKE KIDS TIRE THEM OUT BEFORE THEY GO TO SLEEP. YEAH. EXACTLY. IT’S JUST LIKE WHEN THEY ARE I’M STILL THINKING OF THE KIDS. SO JUST GIVE THEM A BONE TO CHEW ON. GIVE HIM SOMETHING THAT WILL KEEP HIM BUSY WHILE YOU’RE LEAVING THEM. YOU KNOW, SOME KIND OF CHEW THAT REALLY INSPIRES THEM. MAYBE A KONG WITH CHEESE OR PEANUT BUTTER. IT’S A LOT OF WORK TO HAVE A DOG. I’M TEMPTED TO GET ONE. I LOVE DOGS TOO. THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR GREAT TIPS AND EDGAR. AND FOR MORE INFORMATION ON
