Pet Holiday Anxiety Issues?
A note about Sea Turtles before going to our question: Pet Holiday Anxiety Issues?
Sea Turtle News
Save Animals Facing Extinction.org recently reported that our conservation efforts for Sea Turtles in North Carolina are proving very worthwhile with 459 recorded nests just this season. This means busier than usual nesting seasons. Since my niece and her husband, who live on the beach in North Carolina, volunteer there specifically with saving Sea Turtles, this makes me particularly proud. And, the report goes on to say that we need to keep up our work with sea turtles since only one in one thousand hatchlings ever make it to adulthood. See more details on their site linked above. Also take a look at my post entitled “World Turtle Day”.
Holiday Pet Anxiety?
Does your pet have issues with visitors, known or strangers, or loud traffic noises, stormy weather? Do they hide – or show aggression – or shake and shiver – or try to make themselves smaller? Does your fur bud or feathered friend exhibit strange behavior when people come to see you or if they are with you outside their home?
With holidays looming and planning get togethers, the time is here to help your pet buddies loosen up a bit. There are quite a good number of remedies on the market for our pets with anxiety now. I have written about this subject more than once. Do take a look at another post entitled “Pet Anxiety Symptoms and Aids“.
Here is a simple solution for many pets to feel more confident and cared for. See my post story “Does your Pet Suffer from Anxiety?“.
The anxiety vest pictured above is from Healers Pet Care, Vancouver, WA, a great lightweight, breathable, help for your pet baby and all USA-made and sourced. This wrap is also easy on and off and washable. And, if you read my story above, you know how well these vests work to give your pet friend the ‘hug’ they need to feel more self-assured.
CBD Oil, Soft Chews, Treats
You can see my post on CBD from 2022,” “Pet CBD Usage Growing?“.
Updates since 2022
Checking back with The Humane Society regarding the use of CBD for our pets, they reiterate that the Hemp and CBD products are safe and do help to reduce pain for our animals. Specifically, they note these products can be effective in “reducing pain, anxiety, gastrointestinal issues, and seizures in cats and dogs”. They do caution, however, to check with your vet for using hemp or cbd products for your pet. In fact it is best to check with your vet for the best dosage amount for your pet based on their weight, age, and medical history. And do remember to be sure the product is THC-free or no Marijuana ingredient.
The Veterinary Cannibis Society, who provides education on cannibis usage reports on an article from the FDA.gov in January 2023 indicating “they are considering working with Congress on potential regulatory pathways for CBD products”.
Additional USA-made and Grown CBD Companies
I found no new CBD reports on Pet Product News but did on Pet Age about Brooke Shields joining Prospect Farms of Prospect, Maine as their premier marketing person and a board member for their USDA certified organic cbd products for our pets. All is grown and produced from their 400 year old farm in Maine. This company provides calming and mobility drops for both cats and for dogs.
Fab CBD / Nuleaf Naturals
Forbes does show a newer article reporting on ‘the best dog cbd for 2022’. Of those mentioned FabCBD.com of MIlwaukee, Wisconsin provides a THC-free organically grown in Colorado pet hemp oil. And, a second USA CBD player reported is Nuleaf Naturals.com of Denver, Colorado. Nuleaf gives us USA organic hemp products for pets in the form of oil and chews.
Kadenwood / Suzie’s Pet Treats / Charlotte’s Web
Of the three mentioned in my previous post by Discover and Pet Product News, Kadenwood of Newport Beach, California is still going strong in the pet cbd market.
Also Suzie’s Pet Treats.com of Colorado is still listed with USDA certified organic cat cbd bits, dog drops, and dog treats. Their ingredients are all listed on their site.
Last I will mention again is Charlotte’s Web of Colorado. They offer hemp calming chews and oil for dogs in two dosage sizes.
There are quite a large number of companies in this pet cbd market. The only ones I have mentioned or will mention are all USA-made. Not to say there are not more available to you, but these are the ones I have investigated todate.
Other Anxiety Products
For separation anxiety, treat dispensers like those from SodaPup.com and treat puzzles from Catamazing.com and PlanetDog.com are excellent all USA-made ideas for your fur buds. They even have a similar idea for your feathered friends by HootnHollerBirdToys.com of Alabama – a treat table. Any good attention grabbing toy is good to keep your pet friends occupied while you are out.
I hope the above information gives you some good prospects to help your pet with any anxiety issues they may have.
