Pets and Fireworks

2 Nov

Well it’s almost that time of year again when the sky is lit up with fireworks, and while it can be fun for us humans, it can be a scary time for our pets. But don’t fear, the following link from the RSPCA includes lots of good advice to keep your pets calm this firework season: http://www.rspca.org.uk/allaboutanimals/pets/general/fireworks

Top tips include:
1) Provide a safe place to hide e.g. make a little den under furniture
2) Walk dogs during daylight hours before the fireworks start going off
3) Make sure your pet is microchipped so if they get spooked and run away they can be returned to you
4) Stay calm and don’t fuss over your pet too much as this can add to their sense that something is wrong

There is some really good advice from the RSPCA so please take a look. Enjoy the fireworks but make sure you and your pets stay safe!
