PROTECTING YOUR PET DURING THE SOLAR ECLIPSE

The Great American Eclipse will occur on August 21st, marking the first total solar eclipse visible in the U.S. in nearly a century. It is sure to be met with much excitement and fanfare across the country. But how will this affect our beloved cats and dogs?

“Celebrations, crowds and fireworks might be fun for humans, but they can be very scary and stressful for our pets,” says Patra de Silva, President of NHV Natural Pet Products, makers of herbal and plant-based supplements that are veterinarian approved.  “With more sensitive hearing and general lack of understanding of the innocence of fireworks and other loud noises from nearby celebrations, as well as the increase in number of people around, it is easy to see why our pets might experience negative reactions to these events. It’s important to keep your pet calm and reassured.”

If your dog or cat is prone to anxiety, NHV LessStress for dogs or NHV Matricalm for cats can help. They are formulated to act on the nervous and immune systems to help reduce anxiety, hyperactivity and excitability; the herbal ingredients in the formulation like Chamomile, Passion Flower and Lemon Balm contain natural and gentle sedative properties. In areas where there will be total darkness during the eclipse, pets may be confused. “Stick to their normal routine and feeding times and go about your everyday activities,” advises Ms. de Silva. “They will take their cues from you.”

While pets are as susceptible to eye damage as humans if they look directly at the sun for more than an instant during an eclipse (or any other time), they probably won’t be tempted to do so. “For people, it’s really the curiosity factor that makes them want to stare. Dogs and cats don’t know the eclipse is coming.” says Ms. de Silva. “That being said, it’s always better to be safe than sorry, so keep them inside during that time if possible. If you do take your dog outside, it’s essential to keep them safely on a leash so they don’t run off if they become frightened.”
