How to Deal with Pet Anxiety from Fireworks

Independence Day is summer’s biggest celebration. Gathering with friends and family, enjoying the outdoors, grilling, and of course…fireworks. 

If you’re a pet owner, you likely know first-hand that firework shows, while extremely fun and enjoyable for humans, can be an extremely stressful time for our pets. 

Dogs, cats, and many other household pets respond to the booms, bangs, and flashes that July 4th brings with anxiety, stress, and fear. We’ve all seen a scared dog or cat run and hide to escape the loud rumblings of fireworks. Stressed out pets can bring stress for their humans as well.

We here at Lume love our four-legged friends, and we know how tough July 4th can be for them. We want all furry companions to feel safe, happy, and peaceful, and to give pet owners the resources they need to protect the wellbeing of their pets as the many booms, bangs, and flashes explode around them.

Fortunately, CBD pet tincture is a great answer for helping to alleviate the stress in many pets once fireworks start going off.  

Treating Pet Fireworks Anxiety with CBD

There are many reasons pets may suffer from anxiety. Traveling, historical neglect/abuse, moving into a new home, meeting new pets or people, thunderstorms, trips to the veterinarian or groomer, and fireworks can all be causes of pet anxiety and pose a significant challenge for pets and their humans. 

Scores of reviews on the web praise CBD as a potentially life-changing solution for pet owners. Prescription anti-anxiety drugs for pets often have serious side effects that can be harmful. CBD is a natural option that hasn’t shown the same risks of side-effects as prescription treatments.

CBD calms anxious pets. This helps them deal with both acute anxiety associated with fireworks and can be a fantastic addition to a pet’s everyday routine if they suffer from more chronic symptoms.

Take these stories for example:

“I gave my puppy a dose of Pet CBD tincture today before a vet visit because she gets anxiety visiting unfamiliar places for the first time. She was still timid but not cowering like she usually does. After a few minutes she acted very comfortable at the office and with the veterinarian. Today was my first try with it and I’d say it did what I hoped it would for her anxiety.”

~Ramona T.

“My dog has very high separation anxiety. Nothing I tried worked until I tried CBD oil. She's calm and relaxed while on it and there don't seem to be any noticeable side effects.”

~Brian B.

“My dog is very energetic happy, and confident pup, but during the run up to July 4th, people started setting off fireworks. She crawled under the bed and whined and howled for hours on end. When it got the worst, right after dusk, she howled and peed under the bed and wouldn’t come out for hours. I was so sad for her. The next day I did some research and found pet CBD oil as a possible option. I ordered it next day air and thankfully it got here quickly. The results were amazing. When the fireworks started going off that night, she just cuddled up to me on the couch and was very relaxed and peaceful.”

~Anna L.

There are thousands of stories just like these sharing positive impacts CBD can have on pets that suffer from anxiety. For many pets, it is a total lifesaver.

  • Dry mouth: Research has shown that CBD can decrease the production of saliva. Make sure your pet has free access to water when treating them with CBD. 
  • Lowered blood pressure: High doses of CBD have been known to cause a temporary drop in blood pressure, so if your pet suffers from low blood pressure, treatment with CBD is not recommended.  
  • Drowsiness: In most cases, this is not really a side-effect and actually the effect pet owners like to see. It can be a huge win if your pet is able to sleep through the loud bangs and booms of July 4th
