If you're from Southern New Mexico, you're plenty aware that our community enjoys fireworks throughout the city and farmland surrounding Las Cruces and beyond. Our CBD products can help with firework associated stress in your pets. Learn a little about how to give CBD to your furry friend during this stressful time of year!
The 4th of July is a day that many people celebrate with fireworks, but it can be tough for pets. Some dogs are terrified of the noise and cower under beds or in closets, while others may experience anxiety-related symptoms like panting, drooling, pacing, trembling or hiding. There are even pets whom are lost after they disappear in reaction to the loud noises.

We here at Pharmtrue would love to share our solution to the overwhelming commotion from fireworks! As you look to create a safe space for your pet, keep in mind our pet CBD products help promote relaxation, without getting your dog high which helps them to feel calm and happy again.
CBD doses of 1-20 mg/kg have been shown to produce anxiolytic effects in mice. Though different models of anxiety were used in rodents, the studies did indicate that higher doses may be necessary for those wanting to reduce stress and anxiety.
For one looking to dose at the higher end of this spectrum (20 mg per kilogram of body weight), your 20 pound dog may need doses of up to 200 mg CBD to achieve a calming effect.
We produce quality CBD pet products- like our bacon and salmon flavored cbd oil tinctures- that you can give to your dog on the 4th, to help them manage their fear from all the noise from fireworks! Our treats are another tasty CBD option for your pets.
For best absorption, be sure to give your dog CBD with a high fat meal. Our pharmacists recommend mixing the oil in a small glass of milk or another high fat food source.
