The Fourth of July is fast approaching and it is the biggest holiday where pets are fearful & nervous – and the one day of the year where more pets get lost than any other.
- Keep your pets in a quiet room
Keep your pet confined to safe, familiar, and comfortable room. Even better, keep them crated during the festivities.
- Drown Out The Noise
Keep doors and windows closed and leave the radio or TV on to help muffle the noise from outside.
- Give Your Pet A Workout
Take your dog for a walk or play fetch to tucker them out beforehand
- Give The Dog a Bone
Ok so it doesn’t have to be a bone, but give your dog a new toy, treat, or something to keep your pal distracted during from the festivities outside.
- Beat The Heat
Make sure to keep your dog safe by providing plenty of cold water, shade, and the option to go inside.
- Update ID’s
4th of July is the biggest day of the year that pets either get lost or go missing, update your pets tags and get them microchipped if you haven’t already.
- Consult Your Vet
If your pet usually reacts fearfully to loud sounds like thunder or garbage trucks, consult our veterinarian about how to reduce your pet’s anxiety. The anxiety is not good for your pet’s health, and your veterinarian should be able to provide helpful guidelines and information, and even medications when necessary.
