26 Dec New Year’s Eve Pet Safety Tips
New Year’s Eve is another time of the year when your pets need a little extra love. It’s very similar to Fourth of July for them. These New Year’s Eve pet safety tips will help keep your pet safe, calm and happy. Speak with your vet about the proper approach to CBD usage on this special occasion, because your pet may need an extra dose during the extra stressful period.
Fireworks and Random Gunshots
It’s no secret that pets aren’t fans of loud noises. New Year’s Eve brings lots of loud noises like fireworks and neighbors shooting guns into the air randomly. While the random gunfire isn’t typically permitted in most areas – it still happens. Those bullets can ricochet into objects and become dangerous, and even deadly, projectiles. Keep your pets indoors during the festivities.
Yes, random bullets can still penetrate your home, but your pet and all humans really are safer inside.
The ideal time to give your pet his or her dose of CBD is right before fireworks are scheduled or when you notice that the noise is starting to pick up in your neighborhood.
Keep Greasy Foods Away from Pets
On New Year’s Eve your home will likely be full of different foods that will smell really good to your pets. While they might want some and you might want to share – make sure your guests are aware not to feed them any table foods unless they ask you first.
You also need to control how much of these table foods your pet ingests because too much could upset their stomachs. If table foods are not something they are used to, it might be best to inform guests to not share with the animals.
When it comes to the foods that you do say are okay for them, it’s okay to sneak their dose of CBD into one of the little bites of food. Your pet might not like the taste of CBD so disguising it in food might help. It’s still likely easier to just put their dose into their regular dry food.
Keep Doors Closed
During a New Year’s Eve gathering, doors might open and close frequently from guests going in and out. Some might be smokers and you might not permit that inside your home. Make sure your guests are aware to make sure the pets don’t sneak out. If your dog needs to go out, make sure they are on a leash. Make sure that whoever takes the dog outside knows to bring them back in when they come in.
Pets can easily get scared – even with a dose of CBD in them, with all of the noise going on with fireworks, people celebrating and other random noises. If your yard is not fenced in, make sure your pets are accounted for at all times.
These New Year’s Eve pet safety tips are designed to keep your beloved fur family members inside your home and safe. The same goes with 4th of July – pets might run when scared by loud noises and become lost. The local animal shelters are not where you want to have to visit the next few days to try and locate your pet. Speak with your vet about the proper frequency of CBD for your pet and follow our dosing guidelines to make sure you’re giving the proper amount to support calm.
