4th of July Brings Fireworks and BBQ-Please remember our furry friends need extra help.

Hi, my name is Bobbie and I want to share some past memories of 4th of July. As you can see by the picture above, I use to party in the bathtub. It was the place I go when anxious and upset. All that loud shooting and fireworks bother my sensitive ears. I also do not like cameras, flashing lights or ceiling fans, but that is another story.  It took me awhile, but I have finally trained my mom to help me during these trying times. Thunder shirts ( are really soothing. Rescue Remedy is really great!! She also keeps me inside and the curtains closed. Sometimes she turns up the volume on the TV or radio. I get to sit in her lap and get extra hugs.

Some other things you can do are:

·        Keep all your pets inside and make sure the doors and windows are closed.
·        All your furry friends should be micro-chipped and have the collar with ID on.
·        This might be a good time for a frosty treat or a kong treat to keep them        occupied…or even better a new toy!
·        You may check with your vet if these things do not work and there may be medication to help calm your furry friend during this time.

  • Keep an updated photo of your dog. 

     These are also good ideas for the Arizona monsoon season….lightning and thunder can also be very troubling. There are many lost and runaway dogs in the shelters the day after July 4th. Remember stay safe and beg for Frosty Paws!!

    Thunderstorm Phobia

    This is not normal weather for June in Arizona. How many of you spent last night and today with your dogs trying to crawl into bed with you? Monsoons start in July, but you may need those anti-anxiety therapies now for your furry friends.  Also, these storms may spook your pets, so be prepared!

    Here are a few things you can do:
    • Microchip your pet
    • Keep a current picture of your pet on your phone or computer
    • Collar with ID
    Thunderstorm Remedies:
    For those pets that do not like thunder and lightening, here are some things to try.

    Give the dog a safe place where he can go in a storm.

    Consider a snug garment. Thundershirts work well for some dogs. 

    Ask your veterinarian for advice. Do not use over the counter medications unless verified by your vet.

    Natural therapy can work-Rescue Remedy. Close curtains and turn up the sound of TV or play music.

    Please share what works best for your pets.
