Fireworks and Thunderstorms.
Does your pup LOVE fireworks? Probably not. Holidays and fireworks are often stressful times full of anxiety that breaks our hearts by seeing the anxiety our pups feel. Around these holidays many shelters are full with dogs that have bolted, escaped, and injured themselves. What can you do to lessen some of the anxiety our pets feel about fireworks or even thunderstorms? Here are some tools available at Rover Resort that you can use to help lessen your dog’s anxiety:

Aromatherapy with Essential Oils
Essential Oils are a favorite and natural tool to help calm and lessen a dog’s anxiety. Veterinarians like Dr. Nancy Brandt, DVM, CUA, CVC and Barbara Fox, DVM, recommend using ONLY Young Living Essential Oils because of the high quality, therapeutic grade of the oils. We do not recommend that you use any other brand of oils on your pets.
Peace and Calming – helps to reduce nervousness, stress and anxiety. It promotes relaxation and a deep sense of peace and emotional well-being.
Lavender – Calms and relaxes the nervous system.
Valor– Promotes self-esteem, courage, and confidence.
Stress Away – Brings feelings of peace and tranquility and supports the nervous system.
How To Use Essential Oils: Simply place a drop of the oil into your hands and pet onto your dog. Do not apply around nose, face, or inside ears. You may also diffuse the oils by placing 5-12 drops of the desired oil into a Young Living diffuser. You may also rub the oil on a surface such as a bed, blanket, pillow or even YOU!
