Is your dog anxious during

Is your dog anxious during

Fact: More pets are lost on July 4th than any other day of the year.

While not all dogs experience daily anxiety, the large majority of dogs will experience nervousness at some point in their lives. Unknown experiences or encounters, loud noises, new environmental settings, and new faces can all cause short bursts of stress and anxiety, which can make dogs uncomfortable and sometimes can contribute to unwanted behavioral issues during those situations. 

To hedge against these bouts of stress, preventative actions can be taken. Reinforcing positivity during thunderstorms or car rides can help ease your dog into viewing these activities as non-threatening. Or simply removing your dog (when possible) from the situations altogether can keep him from stressing out. For example, when you have house guests that your dog has never met before, putting him in his crate or a separate room can save him the grief of trying to become acquainted with all the unfamiliar faces. 

Another great option is a quick-acting herbal supplement. While many calming supplements are geared for long-term usage, some products contain mild sedative qualities (such as the herb valerian) that will help to calm your dog before the anxiety even begins.

July Third

An Immediate calming Supplement for dogs

Chamomile, Passion Flower, and Valerian

Chamomile has long been used for relaxation. It's notable for the effects it's shown to have on anxiety & stress, encouraging the body to relax. Fast acting, Valerian helps the body achieve a sense of calm by regulating nerves. Both valerian and passion flower encourage the release of gamma aminobutyric acid in the brain, a compound that promotes a sense of calm.

L-Tryptophan

L-Tryptophan is an amino acid known for its ability to encourage the release of serotonin and melatonin in the brain. Serotonin (often called the "feel-good" hormone) is the chemical associated with happiness and relaxation. Melatonin takes on the role of a "sleep hormone".

Thiamine and Magnesium

Thiamine (AKA Vitamin B1) plays an important role in the body's metabolism. It helps with energy metabolism and helps to control hyperactivity. While dogs do naturally manufacture thiamine, some can occasionally be thiamine-deficient, which can increase stress levels. ​Magnesium deficiency can also increase stress levels and add to anxiety.

What The Other Dogs Are Saying:

"Bevers really hates car rides. She adjusts fine to changes in routine and staying with relatives when we're gone, but the drive there is always a struggle. It's difficult to get her in the car and once she's in, she's stiff, won't sit or lay down, and pants excessively the entire time - it's super stressful for her. July Third has made it a lot easier for her to chill during (and sometimes even sleep through) car rides."
Bevers and Joslin
"Adam is a rescue from a South Korean dog meat farm, and was a bit of a wreck when he first came home. He’d pace around my house looking for a way out, until he fell asleep from sheer exhaustion. It was so sad to watch. When we started Adam on July Third, there was an immediate difference in his demeanor! He was relaxed, comfortable and able to quickly adjust to life outside a cage.
Al & Adam
