Keep Your Pets Safe on This Fourth of July

DOG FIREWORKSIt’s the time of year for fireworks and loud noises. It’s important that we stay safe and this includes our pets. Keep dogs and cats away from firecrackers or flames from the  backyard barbeque. If your pet gets too close, they may get burned,  injured or even killed from any explosives and/or flames. The safest thing is to keep your pet indoors. The loud noise from firework displays can really stress some pets out. If possible, keep them in a room where the least amount of noise can be heard. It’s a good idea if someone stays with them. Having a familiar face in the house may calm them down. The stress factor varies from dog to dog.  Some dogs may handle the noise well while some can really get anxious and even sick from unfamiliar, loud sounds.  Most cats do not like loud noises. Use good judgement and have a safe and happy forth!

Remember, your pets count!
