How To Help Your Pets During Firework Celebrations

It’s almost the end of the year and fireworks are often part of christmas and new years celebrations. When it comes to fireworks and pets, safety is always the top priority.

Here are some tips to keep your furry friends safe and stress-free during fireworks season:

  • Keep your pets indoors during fireworks displays. If possible, create a quiet, safe space for them to retreat to if they get scared.
  • Give your pet extra attention and reassurance during the fireworks. Stay calm yourself and provide them with a comforting presence.
  • If your pet is particularly fearful of fireworks, talk to your veterinarian about possible medications or supplements that can help ease their anxiety.
  • Make sure your pet is wearing proper identification, in case they become scared and accidentally run away.
  • Never bring your pet to a fireworks display. The loud noises and bright lights can be very overwhelming and scary for them.
  • If you know your pet is scared of fireworks, try to desensitize them to the noise in the weeks leading up to New Years celebrations where fireworks are common. This can be done by playing recordings of fireworks at a low volume, gradually increasing the volume over time.
  • Have a plan in place in case your pet does get loose. Make sure you know where your local animal shelters are located and have their phone numbers handy.

By following these simple tips, you can help ensure that your pet has a happy and safe Christmas and New Years!
