Keeping pets calm during fireworks

Holidays

(KRON) — Fourth of July means fireworks! While fun and festive for some, the loud explosions can rattle others. Our furry friends are often spooked.

Here is a list of tips to help keep your pet calm and safe during the holiday:

  • Don’t take your pets outdoors to an event with you
  • Keep them indoors, even if they typically live outside
  • Make indoors as quiet as possible
  • Put on some ambient noise, such as radio or television
  • Close the blinds to minimize any light
  • Make sure that if you do take your pets outside, they are microchipped
  • At the very least, make sure that they are wearing an ID tag with your current address and phone number
  • You can also request medication from the vet to help calm your pet down

We hope this helps your furry friends this weekend!
