Not everyone loves fireworks.
You’d be scared, too, if once a year the air were filled with loud explosions that no one explained!
The sounds of fireworks can be distressing to all kinds of dogs, whether the sounds are coming from down the block or miles away. Even at home, a little extra comfort and less anxiety can go a long way toward an incident-free 4th, and CBD can help.

Some rules of thumb for CBD dosing.
Start with the lowest dose, working your way up for desired effects.
CBD is not intoxicating, and is not known to cause adverse reactions, even at extremely high doses – you can always give your dog more if you see the initial dose isn’t providing relief after an hour. Once you find the right dose, take every eight hours or as needed.
And remember, never, ever give pets products that contain THC. It can be extremely unpleasant for them.
Happy Fourth of July weekend, and … Enjoy the Momutt!
