There are a few reasons that talking to your vet can be a great help. Firstly, it means that you’ll be able to ensure your dog has the correct ID if they were to go missing in a panic. Secondly, if your dog’s anxiety is really bad, your vet might be able to prescribe some medication to soothe your pup during the fireworks.
Don’t try to feed your dog any human medication, like Dramamine, as that can end in disaster. Instead, speak to your vet to assess your options.
CBD-infused calming supplements are another option to consider, as they get a lot of praise from dog owners. The challenge is that research is still young, and it’s hard to determine the quality of the supplement you’re buying. Again: Never administer these to your pet without consulting your vet first.
