    July 4th Fireworks, NO Blast for Pets, Keep them Safe

    Don’t take your pets to fireworks displays.

    Rather, keep them safe at home INDOORS in a quiet sheltered area. Leave the TV on for them at a normal sound to help distract them from the loud nosies outside.

    Don’t leave them in the car.

    To help alleviate the fear and anxiety your pet may experience, Rescue Remedy, a natural remedy found at health food stores, usually helps to calm your pet during fireworks displays.

    Never leave pets outside unattended, even in a fenced yard or on a chain. When they are frightened and scared, they will get out, or get tangled up in their own chain, risking death or injuries. More dogs get loose and are lost on the Fourth of July more than any other day.

    Make sure your pets have ID tags on.

    And, please don't let your dog be around any fireworks, even if he's not afraid. A video of a dog and a fireworks accident, HERE.

      Excellent advice!! I couldn't agree more with you. My Sheltie is old now and is hard of hearing, but when her hearing was normal fireworks terrified her. She became a nervous wreck.
