PSA From the Pets *from the dog*

IT’S COMING! Fourth of July that is. Which means FIREWORKS. RUN! Oh wait, they haven’t started yet. Hi, I’m your dog! It’s nice to finally have a voice. As the Fourth of July is just around the corner, I am here to let you know how to keep us calm during those pesky fireworks so you can enjoy your barbecue. In this article, I bark about CBD and how it can help your doggo family members this Fourth of July and beyond.

How CBD Can Help your Furry Friends

Fireworks are both triggering and stressful for us canines. The sudden loud sounds release stress hormones and adrenaline, telling our instincts to GET OUT OF HERE! Did you know our hearing is four times as sensitive as yours? This is why sometimes we run away on the Fourth of July. It’s all very anxiety-provoking. What to do about it, you ask? CBD has helped calm me down during loud Fireworks as well as on a day-to-day basis (I am known to get pretty excited). Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, is a substance derived from the cannabis plant that produces calming effects. Think: natural chill pill but without the psychoactive elements found in THC. 

CBD Soft Chew for Dogs

Products like Vena’s CBD Soft Chews for dogs help us relax with a soothing combination of CBD, valerian root, and organic chamomile. These soft chews contain no THC or the psychoactive element of the cannabis plant. While sometimes there may be THC in CBD Oil, it is important that CBD chews for your dog are THC-free. We are psychoactive enough as it is! 

CBD Soft Chews from Vena provides 60 bacon-flavored chews and if you didn’t already know it, I LOVE BACON. Turns out, I love CBD too! Each chew contains 5mg of CBD Isolate, for a total of 300mg of CBD in each bag.  Ultimately, your pets are family, so treating us to a delicious snack that helps calm our nerves can benefit all of us!

Dosage and More Info

I put together some quick tips below that will help you help your dog stay cool, calm, and collected. This Fourth of July you’ll be enjoying your cookout while I am cuddling up on the couch. It’s a win-win!

  • 10mg of CBD isolate is an ideal dose for most average-sized dogs. Vena recommends doses based on your animal’s weight and size. 
  • When you give your beloved dog CBD, do me a favor and make sure it is formulated for animals, not humans. The internal endocrine systems of humans and animals differ, so inherently the dosage will differ as well. 


  • The best way to determine if your product is safe is a COA or certificate of analysis. Look out for CBD companies who provide these transparent lab results, which prove products are pesticide-free and THC-free, where applicable. 

Stay Paws-itive this Fourth of July

With our unwavering loyalty and love, our happy wagging tails, and our wet and unlimited kisses, we dogs are your best friends. So please try and help us relax this Fourth of July! Consider using Vena’s CBD Calming chews to soothe your furry friends during loud fireworks and for general discomfort/anxiety. I promise you we will love you forever.

PS - I’ve noticed that CBD can help humans out as well! Try the best quality gel capsules, tinctures, and creams from Vena cause you could use a chill pill too.
