As the Fourth of July holiday preparations are underway, there are sure to be barbecues and family fun and fireworks. For family pets, the fireworks experience offers giant booms, flashes of light and strange smells, and the experience can seem like an assault to a dog’s senses and be extremely anxiety-provoking. Unless your dog is acclimated to loud noises, such as hunting rifles, most family pets need help staying calm when fireworks are in the works and will be grateful to their pet owner for finding a solution to help them through the booms and bangs of Independence Day.
According to Darryl Sampson, Best Friends Pet Hotel VP/Operations, “As a pet care provider, we know that July 4th can be a stressful evening for anxious pets. We are proud to offer in select locations a wonderful array of Honest Paws CBD Pet Care Products to help relieve any stress or anxiety to our beloved dogs and cats while we enjoy our national holiday.”
More than 63 percent of U.S. households have one or more pets, and unfortunately, animal control officers nationwide report a 30 percent increase in lost pets each year between July 4th and July 6th due to frantic runaway pets.
Through a partnership with Honest Paws CBD Pet Products, select Best Friends Pet Hotels nationwide will be making available their natural dog products for sale for pet parents. CBD is a beneficial cannabinoid, found in the hemp plant. Like humans, it works with the endocannabinoid system to maintain homeostasis or a balanced state in your body.
Select Best Friends locations* will be selling Honest Paws CBD Bites, Soft Chews and CBD Oil for all dog sizes and in different formulas for calmness, mobility, relief, and general wellness. Sourced from one farm in Colorado, CBD Bites active ingredients include organic full-spectrum hemp containing naturally occurring CBD and with no GMOs, corn or soy. Soft Chews carried at Best Friends are formulated for Calm or for Mobility for joint stiffness.
The Honest Paws CBD oil tinctures are offered in 30-day supply using naturally occurring CBD, and formulated for different size dogs. The oil is free of gluten, GMOs, Xylitol and soy and is formulated either as Calm Oil (with chamomile) to maintain calmness and behavioral problem management, or as Wellness Oil recommended for assisting the immune system, maintain calmness and support cognitive health.
Honest Paws is also offering a delicious CBD Peanut Butter jar, perfect for peanut butter-loving canines who also need a gluten and dairy-free human grade product free of GMOs, Xylitol and Soy, and a Coconut Oil jar and CBD balm for all dog and cat sizes.
CBD pet products can also help support nervousness and anxious behavior, joint care and mobility, travel stress, inconsistent sleep, seasonal allergies, and even cracked paws.
