The 4th of July is fun and exciting for a lot of humans but for our furry friends, it can be a terrifying time. Our Chihuahua/Boston Terrier mix Millie is a very anxious dog and gets easily spooked by loud noises. I have been putting a drop of lavender on my palms and then petting her starting at her neck back towards her tail just to help ease her anxiety and calm her down. It has worked wonders for her and she is often sleeping within an hour or so of me putting it on her. We will be doing it for sure today as the fireworks ramp up. It makes her smell great too! Stress Away and Peace & Calming are two other oils that are suggested. If you would like to learn more about essential oils and/or purchase, please visit our link: www.ufloat.org/essential-oils.html
Happy 4th of July everyone! Stay safe and have fun!
