How Can we Facilitate our Animals’ Tranquility Over the 4th?

Dearest Anna,

Every year when the sun is high for long periods and the temperature gets really warm, I anxiously await this event. I don’t know exactly when it will come, or for how long it will last. It begins sometimes slowly, with a snap, a crackle, a fizzle, and a pop, but later on, after dark, the big booms arrive. I can feel them shake the house – the concussion in the air – my eardrums are pierced by this repetitive sound. Sadly, it’s not just brief; it’s not just one night, as this tends to go on for a whole weekend, and often even two. Sometimes my family will even leave me alone during this time, at which point I hide under the bed, or crawl into the darkest recess of the closet, and I desperately hope everything will be ok. Anna, how can my guardians help calm and ease my tension during this time? Everyone seems overjoyed and like there is something to celebrate. I would hate to ruin their fun with my upset and panic.

Yours truly,

Freedom the Beagle

Dearest Freedom,

How beautiful is your heart? I wish all souls were as sensitive and selfless as you, not wanting to ruin the fun of others simply because you are upset. Well, your upset is a big deal and it shouldn’t be minimized. This day is actually a celebration for us, a celebration of our freedom, the very thing after which you were named. However, our freedom to celebrate our American heritage and tradition shouldn’t have to affect you so deeply.  I have just the thing that I know you will find helpful.  It’s a spray that will allow you to relax, that will calm the nerves a bit, and will allow you to enjoy the fun had by your two-legged family. Tell them to put 5 sprays either directly into your mouth or on your food, and to repeat every few minutes until they see a difference in how you feel. Please tell them this can also be used for vet visits should you get nervous, and for a number of other stress-inducing situations like travel or boarding. Bless your heart, sweet Freedom. I know you will find some peace in your situation with just this natural, Dynamite remedy!

Love always,

Anna
