that will touch your heart
- Never leave your pet unattended. If you will be away from home, make arrangements to board him at your veterinarian’s office or a professional kennel.
- Keep your pet inside in a basement or another room where outside noise can be minimized. Turn on a radio and provide his favorite chew toy and blanket.
- Play with your pet to keep him preoccupied when the noise is the greatest. Resist the temptation to physically comfort him if he is afraid. This may reinforce his fear.
- Make sure that your pet is wearing an identification tag should he become lost, and make sure visitors keep doors closed.
- If you take your dog for a walk, keep him on a leash.
- Consult with a veterinarian about medications that may help relieve your pet’s stress.
The most terrifying time of the year for pets
- Keep your pet indoors when fireworks are expected.
- Never shout at a frightened pet because this will increase his stress.
- Praise your pet when he is calm.
- Check your pet regularly and if you can, stay with him during the
fireworks. Your presence is probably the most important calming
influence for your pet.
