Pet Tips for a Fun and Safe July 4th Holiday! 1. 2. 3.
Never take your pet to a firework display. Never leave your pet in a hot car. Your pet can die in just a few minutes from heat stroke. During the firework display don’t leave your pet in the yard or leave windows or doors with screens open. They may try to escape when terrified. Keep your pets at home, inside, in a sheltered, quiet area. If you are planning a barbeque, keep your pet away from food scraps and alcohol. Always supervise your pet around swimming pools and lakes. While attending the firework festivities, keep your pet in a quiet, cool, well-ventilated room with a radio or TV playing softly in the background. Make sure it is not a room with windows since they may escape. A crate works well too. Make sure your pet has identification tags or a microchip so he/she may be returned to you promptly if lost. If you are leaving town, make sure your pet-sitter is aware of your pet’s possible anxiety during the Fourth of July and give him/her directions accordingly. After the Fourth of July, be aware of possible firework debris when walking your dog. Finally, be aware that people may continue using their leftover fireworks in the days following the Fourth of July.
By following the tips above you and your pet can have a safe and happy Fourth of July holiday!
