Party Purr-fect: Keep Pets Calm
All of the new people, noise, food and activity can really get your dog or cat over-wrought with excitement or stress. Use aromatherapy and these easy tips to calm down Fluffy or Fido.
- Distraction from excitability is key: offer a new toy, treat, and/or a change in environment to occupy the animal.
- Create a safe space or retreat where the animal has access to all its familiar things: food, toys, bed, etc.
- Make a weak spray of 4 oz. water and 8 drops of ylang ylang. If the animal is stressed, give it a light spray to calm and distract its focus.
