Tips for a Safe Fourth of July

tips for a safe fourth of july

Fireworks can be incredibly scary to dogs and cats.

Make sure your pets are safely indoors and be there to comfort them while fireworks are being set off.

Play the TV or radio to try and drown out the noise from the fireworks.

You can also try a Thundershirt to help your dog or cat cope with the stress of loud noises.

Having your pet microchipped is your best option, but even if you only have ID tags make sure they are up to date.

I recommend both microchip and ID tags for best case if your pet does get out of the house somehow.

Start desensitizing your pet now, play firework sounds on low and slowly turn up the volume over time.

You should also have a safe place for your pet to retreat, especially if you'll be having friends or family over your house.

It's always best if you can stay home with your pet. They'll thank you for it, and you'll be much happier knowing you're there to comfort your pet during such a stressful time.
