As humans around the United States celebrate with loud-cracking fireworks, our four-legged friends (and many two-legged war veterans!) can experience anxiety, fear, and trauma.

If you share your home with a four-legged, please check out this helpful video from our friend Amanda at Sama Dog.


According to the American Veterinary Medical Association’s 2017-2018 edition of the Pet Ownership and Demographics Sourcebook 57 percent of U.S. households include at least one companion animal. Amanda Ree, an Ayurvedic health practitioner and team member of the Chopra Center for Wellbeing, suggests that because our animals share our lives so closely, they are as impacted by people and events as we are. Her “Six Pillars of Dog Wellbeing,” include Dosha (an Ayurvedic classification), Food, Behavior, Body/ Mind, Emotional, and Spiritual. If you share your home with another species, take a few moments to consider its wellbeing at check out the amazing resources at samadog.com.
