How To Protect Your Pets On The Fourth

Americans love fireworks on the Fourth of July. Unfortunately, our pets do not. I know my dog Taz hates them, he barks at any noise really. But this weekend you got to make sure your pets are safe and we have the tips.

Our friends at the Humane Society want to remind people that pets can become distressed by the additional noise and commotion involved with the Independence Day holiday.

Here are some things to remember when protecting your pet this Fourth of July:

Leave your pet at home – Fireworks displays can be disorienting and frightening to pets, even those used to going places with their people.

Create a home sanctuary – Leave your pet in an area of your home where he or she is safe, comfortable and sheltered from any outside noise and lights. An inside room with no windows may be best.

Pet-proof your home – When scared, some animals can become destructive, so be sure to remove anything that can become damaged or might harm your pet if chewed.

Keep them inside – Never leave pets outside and unattended. Even in a fenced in yard, panic can lead a pet to escape and get lost, or become injured while trying to seek refuge.

Identification – Make sure that your pet is always wearing identification. In the unfortunate event that your pet gets lost, an updated identification tag greatly increases your chances of being reunited.
