Local pet expert says trick or treaters can make family pets very anxious.

LAKEVILLE, Minnesota — Ghosts, witches and goblins will soon come aknockin’! Halloween is Thursday, October 31, 2019, but are your four-legged family members ready? Experts say endless door ringing by a parade of strangers and handing out lots of treats can really spook your pets. The fact is Halloween can be very stressful time for our furry friends. 

Local pet expert, Jon Wagner, owner of Wag N’ Wash in Lakeville, says CBD oil, a compound found in hemp, can help maintain a balance in the body to ease stress and is found in many different dog products.

CBD oil is used to treat pain, seizures and anxiety when used on dogs.This can be especially useful during the Halloween season, as pet’s anxiety can spike with strangers constantly coming and going from their home.

“Wag N’ Wash offers a variety of CBD products (treats and oils) that are beneficial to control dogs' anxiety,” said Wagner. However, do consult a veterinarian first before giving your pet CBD oil. For more dog care tips, click here. Or, call Wag N’ Wash at (952) 985-1400.
